Still think it’s been worthwhile overall given that we’re not so constrained financially. He’s started 36 games (40 apps in total) this season which has been too much; probably evidenced by him scoring a goal every other game before Christmas and none since. Also the pattern of his substitutions has been poor. Constantly being taken off after an hour is dumb when there are situations when he’d be much more useful in the last 30 mins. Much like the overall plans this season, there’s been no proper assessment of what would be best in which situation.
Been more useful in the last 30 minutes as in coming off the bench or just finishing the match?
Coming off the bench. Eg in the Derby if the game plan was to bore the game to death for 75 mins then try and push for a winner, he’d surely have been more use with fresh legs for the last 20 mins than not being great as a DM for the first 2/3s of the game.
Our top scorer. Far from a disaster. Poorly managed in terms go game time, thus affecting his input. No issues with seeing him here next season.
