Why is Maguire not even getting on the bench now?

Surely he's a better option than a finished leadbitter.

He's a good impact sub to have, and he's a decent attacking option... Has he fell out with the manager?

Leadbitter is the established respected player so it's the pecking order.

Leadbitter slows the game down..no way can he come on and have an attacking influence on the game.

Is leadbitter better than Maguire? I'd say no, so we're weakening the team

We will have to just accept what Lee Johnson thinks because he is the gaffer.

Daft decision to leave him out imo. It's down to personal reasons imo, nothing to do with the team...
