Gary Monk called him lazy when he was at Swansea. Remember him just standing on the edge of the box in one of their cup games against Oxford, he does nothing and they score. Fans turned on him then, probably just before he turned up here.

Looked different class that season in the Championship, but doesn’t have the mobility or seemingly heart to cut it in the PL.

also he was getting left alone with yards of space in the first 6 months of that season. he had all the time in the world to pick a pass, plus we had more mobilty in the side then - even including goufrann.

last part of the season the opposition styarted to close him down more and he did less well.
john gibson in the chronicle this afternoon;
"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."

He could have played in his slippers in the Championship at times, like. :lol: So many teams just didn't know what to do with him. Give him less space and he just dropped a bit deeper and played the same passes to Gayle, easy. Was an incredible asset in that division.
