Martinez bought a lot of shite and they all got game time except this guy. The fact that the man who bought him never played him either says to me it's simply a case of him not being up to scratch.
Ah, Martinez. Wanted us to play possession football. Bought Oumar Niasse, who lacks almost all of the qualities to play that style. And he wasn't cheap either.
The issues we have with recruitment now are small in comparison to what was happening under Martinez/Reeves. It would have been fascinating/horrifying to see what they would have done with real money.
