In comparison to players we have had in the past who you only had to take one look at, and come to the conclusion that they would easily go on to play at a higher level, CJ doesn't come anywhere near to any of them in my opinion.
40+ games with 3 goals and 3 assists last season, statistically proves that we've done well to get some money for him. All well and good banging on about he could do this or do that etc, when simply he's not a kid anymore with a huge amount of time to develop further. If he isn't doing it by now, I don't think he ever will do.
He has pace and that's his main assett. As advantageous as his pace is, every rapid player is one hamstring tear, dodgy knee, or achilles injury away from being completely shot if they have nothing else to offer in their locker. As harsh as it seemed, Hayden White was never at his orginal best when he came back which I think the management thought too, hence why the gamble to retain him wasn't taken.
Players mentioned in comparison to him i.e. your Corden's and your Lawrence's had nowhere near the amount of rapid pace, yet their stats elsewhere were leagues apart.
Great deal for me, and we can get much, much better given the amount of choice that there's going to be with our financial position.
