Personally I think it was more a case of him thinking he'd dominate in L2. He turned up and did just that. But as the games went on and the luck (call it what you like) he had at first started to drain away he got found out.
He thought he could walk it and found out he couldn't but wasnt really prepared to give the extra needed by that point. He probably thought he could do what it wanted and it would work out, like his first few games. Also we were on a run in, every team was up for playing us and this is a competitive league when you're fighting to go up.
Good player but didn't really give us his all. Walker achieved a lot more and put more in but IMO still had more to give effort wise.

Against Accrington the opinions were generally that Grant had a decent game and Walker looked really good. The main talking point was how lazy Akinde is despite scoring a reasonable amount last season albeit almost half in penalties. Also the Imps are not as flush with money as a lot of fans think they are with their success. That’s been mentioned on the forum too I think.

"We've got good quality but we've got massive issues in terms of depth.I think you've only got to look at Saturday and I think we were the only team in the Football League who couldn't name a full bench. Obviously we had two 18-year-olds and a 19-year-old as part of those subs so we're certainly short on numbers. Any incomings that do happen between now and August 31 will have to be free. I'm talking about free transfers and free wages. Seriously that's where we're at. We're doing our best to convince clubs at a higher level that this will be a good environment for their players. We certainly can't offer them anything financially. We would like to think we can offer them a pathway to play, we're hoping some of the bigger clubs will see this as a good place to develop players. We're frightfully short - there's no hiding from that - I wake up three or four times a night worrying about it. There's no hiding place we're doing our very best. I congratulate the board for what they're doing because we haven't got any money."
