Stephens looked completely uninterested and offered little. And yet, as I posted previously, he made more tackles in the game than anyone else on the pitch. Did he have a good game?, no, was he familiar with his colleagues and our pattern of play? obviously not, is he "Dyche fit"?, no. Was he more ...
