Best example is jake Buxton left us with most saying he was crap. Went to Burton and then went to Derby and stayed in the championship for year. In fact he's still in league one at 35 as a play-manager. Some people will just declare him invredibly lucky.
With the exception of Ben Whiteman all of those players left with, shall we say, "mixed" reviews. We don't give players time never have done. Another example. 2 seasons ago there were calls for Tyler walker to shipped back off to forest because he was no good. Granted, these threads were started by Norman but he still had people agreeing with him when he went 7 games without a goal at one point. Too many times players are written off early and then every mistake they make gets highlighted.
You have the flipside to that with fans favourites. Last season Pearce got support after making a ton of mistakes, yet any other defender gets slaughtered for them.
We treat some players so badly they write something on social media that wasn't nice to us and goes on to have a good career. All because ethey couldn't give him time to learn from mistakes.
Agreed, can remember Walker having great game at home... scored and people sat around us were slagging him off constantly.
Happens with multiple players. Especially if a player goes to a bigger club in the league above...
