Don't really get the point at having a dig at him. Who would you replace him with? Of the back 4 who played yesterday Ward is the only one who the manager has fielded in every league match.

He isn't the greatest defender but I thought he was amongst our best players against Everton and has shown glimpses this season of his best football.

Ward isn't the problem nor do I think he is a weakness; he's good at some things, not good at others, what's the point in laying your frustration out on him


'Laying my frustration out on him' go and have a lay down love.
I think he's been below par for the last couple of seasons and needs to be upgraded, like pretty much every other position has since we've been promoted.

Anyone else think that he isn't upto it? Been consistently our worst player for ages now.
I'm not jumping on the 'Palace are sh*t after one defeat bandwagon', hopefully it was just a bad game. Think we need 2 new full backs. Neither ward or Soare can defend, positionally they are all over the place, Our wingers must be mugging them in training.

Anyone can confirm I have been saying this about Ward for 2 seasons and Papa since he arrived. As for ward I love the guy but he isn't anywhere near the standard we need to push on. Has no positional awareness, overcommits every time and gets beaten. If we want to crack on we need to upgrade.

Not sure if this has been prior said. But swings and roundabouts, he was arguably one of our best players at Everton.

I think it was Kelly they targeted if anyone.

I would love to see him a centre back, maybe not yet but soon, or possible in CDM/CM, which for oldies is the number 6. He has got the ability and athleticism to be a very good midfielder, just isn't quite quick enough to play outwide. But is a very good player and future captain. Also people are forgetting he used to be one of our best players, now he looks average in a good team we have good!

If he's our worst player then we're doing alright.

Sorry don't see it.
Left exposed early on by the Hammers system, but I really don't believe he's playing badly at all.
All about opinions I suppose...............
Even wrong ones.

we are, aren't we? When we came up Ward was considered one of the best in the squad. I'd have him down as maybe our 13th or 14th best player now.

Casual is right. He isn't quite good enough anymore for a first team with some very decent Prem level players. We have no one to replace him at the mo' though.

Couldnt disagree more. I think he is premier league standard. The two weaker links i have seen recently are martin kelly, who is a very limited full back with no real attacking quality and joe ledley, i think the difference in quality when cabaye came on yesterday really was telling.

In short I do not think that Ward is of the required PL standard and we should look to upgrade in January. Until then it's business as usual.

I don't recall any right back rumours only left back ones, so not sure Pards will change anytime soon.
For me, he blows hit and cold, and goes wandering and seems to try to do somebody elses job too often.
He can get better though, definitely wouldn't sell.
