if he could sort out his mental issues (football wise) he wouldn't be here - he'd be a 20M player when we bought him.
it's his biggest weakness and one loads of us have talked about for ages. he just doesn't think..
watch - at time he will come out with the ball wide right but this happens when he's more central - there will be a player wide left and open, he doesn't even look. if he looked and decided differently it would be one thing. but he NEVER does.......he invariably runs wide goes to the line and options get less and less until he has one option left.
Saturday was another example. I think it was Arnie top of the box when he decided to lash it into the stratosphere.
he won't improve now, he's what 27 ? it's very difficult to change years and years of ingrained mentality - the best we can hope for is that Pellers get's him to occasionally look. and hope.
it has happened too often now for us to say "that's a one off." it isn't. if I was one of his teams mates (and as big as him
) I'd bollock him big time - or just twat him.
