With phrases like "bags of ability" and "underrated", it does make me wonder if you were looking at the right player out there.
I get it.....some people are more impressed/interested in endeavour and enthusiasm. Just saying that in terms of technical ability he was very talented. Can’t account for the head on his shoulders, which combined with his injuries may account for his CV.
Remember watching him play against us the season before he signed (for Hull I think) and he ran the show. Though it was a massive signing when he came.....then his knee and the club fell to pieces.
Oh...and for the record I don’t think I’ve ever compared him to Hourihane. Hope he has a great cup final
