Agreed. I mean did Shaw even have a pre season? He' not had any minutes and 20 minutes of game time and people are tearing into him and saying he is finished .This isn't really related to Shaw but it always amazes me how the current narrative makes people's minds up for them before they've even watched the game.
When a player is in a spell of positive perception from the fans they can do no wrong, every performance thread is full of praise for any 5/10 or 6/10 game, always a positive spin on a performance, any errors are completely ignored as long as they weren't punished by the opposition. On the flip side when you're in a spell where you're unpopular with the fans, you can go put in that same 5/10 or 6/10 performance and get absolutely slated for being useless.
He came on for 20 minutes and did fine. It's almost not even worth bumping the thread it was so unnoteworthy. Everyone is just chomping at the bit as soon as he came on to point out how unfit and unprofessional he is and were going to tell everyone in this thread how he's shit no matter what.
