Jewell: Edwards Has Been a Revelation
Saturday, 16th Apr 2011 09:07
Blues boss Paul Jewell says Carlos Edwards has been "a revelation" since switching from midfield to right-back . The Town manager says he was first impressed with the Trinidadian, whose appearance total has triggered another year on his contract, playing at full-back early on in his career.
Jewell said: “I remember when Carlos played at Wrexham at full-back and I think he’s been a revelation. He probably hasn’t had his two best games of late, but I think he’s been terrific.
“He’s got great recovery, great energy, good use of the ball and he’s got a couple of goals from there as well.
“I’m looking to improve all areas [of the squad in the summer]. If I can improve any area on the pitch and it’s in my budget, I’ll do it, but I think Carlos has been excellent for us.”
Edwards himself says Town have missed out on a good opportunity to push for promotion this season having been inconsistent throughout the campaign: “Looking back at the beginning of the season, we started off well, but we didn’t have what it takes to get that momentum to push us forward and to press.
“We would win one, draw one, win one and then lose five. It’s been a rollercoaster. We never got a decent run going where we could say ‘listen, we are pushing for promotion’ or even staking a claim for a play-off spot. We were not far off, but then again it was so near and yet so far.”

There was quite a groundswell of opinion that no annual awards should have been given after a season like that. Except perhaps for one award that doesn’t have a category… the award for the supporters!

My grandma claimed to know nothing about football. "Oh, I'll leave you men to talk about the football", she'd say, but she knew alright. She knew exactly what was going on with the Town.
