Feel sorry for him because he is feeding off scraps and at the moment we are far too narrow and he is not getting the support of a disjointed midfield. Alex MacDonald is supposed to give us width but more often than not he is plaiyng in midfield. Johnny Hunt is a defensive full back giving no added threat down the wings. He certainly wasn't the lazy, disinterested person described by many on this board. I hope he comes good but there are other issues that need addressing that will help him.
Why would that make a difference? I didn't go to Colchester, but i've seen enough of him in the matches i've been to that suggests that he isn't what we'd be looking for if we have aspirations for the top 7.
It's not like he's not had chances - he missed 3 elementary sitters against Notts County - his fitness and effort had improved markedly, but his ability - like controlling the ball and finishing chances remained poor, at best.
As said elsewhere, we all hope the lad comes good for both him and the side, but how much more chances can you give someone? He's certainly not as good as Angol.
Given the fanfare needing a new forward, he's been a complete disappointment - of that there is little argument
