How's he supposed to show it for the first team if he doesn't get playing time? He played fairly well in preseason, wanted a loan which was turned down by Ole who than proceeded to barely play him the entire season.Greed unfortunately. He'd not shown it for the first team, and his people messed it up for him, as he wasn't showing the quality required to make us really feel that we need to bow down to his demands. We've got plenty of talent in front of him, and he clearly wasn't doing what was required to get more of a look in.
Always rated him high, he's been a sensational talent for us at the lower levels and I'm sad its ending like this, but its far from the end of the world and I won't be losing too much sleep over it even if he ends up at Chelsea, even if I'd hate to see that coming.
Club should have locked him down last summer and let him go out on loan instead of allowing him to run down his contract till the last year.
