Just been picking a Posh ST holder on Edwards via twitter

Very mixed news for us.
"When he’s not injured, he’s a terrific player. Skilful, passionate and works hard. But very injury prone. And normally lengthy ones too.
He seems to get injured easily, and not normally in the tackle. Definitely good enough for championship, if he stays fit, he can really progress. Sad to see him leave.
He can play both wings. Scores special goals too, doesn’t do tap ins. Very attack minded."
Sounds exactly like the type of player Hurst has targeted throughout his career and makes me think if we get the very similar McKay then Rowe and/or Ward might be moved on sooner rather than later. (I'd keep Ward but no idea how he fits into our wage structure).
Also makes me wonder where McKendry fits in in the bigger picture.
Skip to 1 minute mark and he has 2/10 GOTS contenders for Posh and wins it. Can clear strike a ball well, loves a shot and hasn't really done much but progress looking at his St Johnstone stuff too.
Also ties in with something I've noticed about Hurst's recruitment in that all of the players are very similar/identical in many respects. He doesn't seem to go for or replace players in areas that aren't very similar in approach and style.
Very curious and excited to see someone who clearly feels they're ready come here and prove it.
Forgot to add the most recent season's countdown and his run and finish against Northampton is just as good as anything else.
