Towler for me. He’s miles better than Pollock.

Reminds me of Lever or Handysides.

Reads the game, he’s physical and he’s fast. He’s also really good with the ball.

Lever or Handyside? Such an odd combination, they were nothing like each other. Lever a good old fashioned stopper who’d try to head a ball wherever it was and could handily use his knee or shin to hit the ball. A good player in the team but he needed Tillson with him. Now if you’d said Tillson or Handyside then I could’ve agreed with that. Both quick and ball playing centre halves who were often where the ball was before the ball got there.

I’ve just realised who you are with that slip, you are Mark Lever and I claim my £5.

We got £250k for Pollock. I know Towler is playing a level lower at the moment but he seems to have that extra yard of pace required higher up the pyramid. It's a real shame he's not our asset.

Towler is shocking, no idea what Hurst sees in him, if it wasn't for Morais covering him all game and playing 10 out 10 every week we would be losing every week.
I just hope Bristol don't realise this and come on with a straight swap player deal in January.

Towler is streets ahead of Pollock. Be amazed if he didn’t end up playing at a higher level than Pollock in the future

Agreed, looks classier on the ball aswell. A real Rolls-Royce player. Can match it up physically, good with the ball and also got a yard of pace about him.

Yesterday proved how good he really is. He was under pressure from their striker early doors and almost got caught out, he adapted and reacted and then never looked in bother again…

Usually when a defender gets the ball I'm not that interested and want them to get rid, when Towler gets the ball I really like watching him, he creates himself so much time, a big future in the game I reckon.    

I'm hoping the fact that he was included in the squad for Bromsgrove indicates that unless they get a problem Bristol keep him with us for the rest of the season.

Towler has forever time or space…

Towler is classy. Reads it well, calm on the ball, has a yard of pace to allow him to recover very well (made a great late tackle second half yesterday) and yesterday showed he can go toe to toe with big physical forwards too. He has it all. He will play comfortably top half of championship, if not higher. Much better than Pollock who was very willing but limited.


Looking forward to a brighter future now Fenty has gone.
