Maybe I’m being harsh on him. Just frustrated with our current state.Lacey hasn’t kicked a ball in senior football. If you are going based on youth football, I do wonder how much of Hannibal you watched, as he was a level above the rest and academy player of the year.
He definitely has it, and the thing that people seem to be most concerned about is actually one of the main assets as to why he ‘has it’. As a young player coming in, you need to be able to at least do the work, graft and look after yourself a bit, otherwise coaches don’t want to risk even the talented guys. Hannibal can play, but at the minimum, he can compete. His ability to compete is a base level, his talent will do the rest.
If we can give McTominay hundreds of games here and can’t even afford a few to Hannibal I’d be very disappointed.
I would certainly be playing him ahead of McTominay right now. I’d even be ready to be starting Mainoo ahead of casemiro but I know it’s unrealistic. Casemiro is a major problem this season for me.
