He has started several games for a side chasing 4th and Champions League qualification, and his two goals have come in substitute appearances. I think the intensity is surely there -- about as real as it gets.
I donít think sub appearances are, inherently.
As said, heís started more games recently though so thatís better.
Itís just not the absolute no brainer option, from the point of view of him coming back here and being good for us, that it is often portrayed as.
