It isn't really working out for him here is it.I was delighted when we signed him last season,he had always impressed me when I had seen him play at LB for Palace,but he just hasnt been able to keep himself fit or establish himself in the first team here. When he has been available,Mick doesn't seem to trust him as a fullback these days,instead shifting him out to wide midfield or even a winger in a 4-3-3.Being the top pro he is I'm sure he is happy to do a job anywhere,but I think its a real shame we just haven't seen him play regularly for us in his natural LB position.
I didnt realise how close we came to appointing him.(in the green un interview he says he spoke to Marcus Evans but in the end we opted for Keane)Now,i know he is a marmite character,I like him personally,but im certain with the backing Evans gave Keane & Jewell,he would have got us promoted.
