Thought he looked a very solid player on his home debut against Killie but got to be honest since then in the brief appearances that I have seen him he hasn't looked that great .
I think we are all clutching at straws here looking for a silver bullet remedy to our current predicament .
For me our problem lies in the centre of the park .
JMc has set his stall out from day one in that he wanted a team of battlers and for me has forgone any sort of creativity coming from the centre of the park in favour of ball winning types .
That's all very well having someone like that in there but there's no balance Woods/Gowser doesn't work , neither does Woods/Robson or Woods/Hadienus .
I actually don't think any of these lads are bad players as such , in fact I think they all offer something and are tidy enough , its simply that they are all very similar for me .
JMc didn't fancy Kamara that's very obvious , forget this P*%H about the player having downed tools ,he hadn't , he simply isn't a McKintyre type of player in that he isn't going to be the type to run around daft chasing down opponents and putting in bone crunching tackles !
He got rid of the 2 French lads pretty much straight away without giving them as much as a chance and I personally think Madianga would have gave a more balanced structure to the middle of the park as in he had the ability to turn away from a player and link the play which is something we are badly lacking in their now .
Both these lads had ability and had taken a big step up so of course they needed time to find consistency but with the departure of Kamara it could have been a great opportunity for at least one to be handed the jersey and told it was theirs to keep if they performed and that if they step up to the challenge we would build the team around them in the same way we built our side around Kamara .
