    Gone to Charlton on loan.

    I rather liked him from the few times I saw him (he featured 24 times in all) but was shipped out at the start of the season as he wasn't part of the new plans. However, Wigan have moved him on as he's only started 6 games but has come off the bench 8 times this season.

    Apparently we bought him for £1 million and sold him for £500,000.

    Recall reading a bit about him yesterday SL and by all accounts his time at Wigan seems as bad as it was with Wolves.

    I don't think he was ever good enough and like Wallace was about the range we were/are shopping in in the hope of another Kightly. That said he never gave less than everything when I saw him so wish him luck. Also think their is a player in Wallace just think that ship has sailed and is there is it won't be with us.

    He's too small and weak physically for the Championship. He'll have a good career between League One and League Two. He was a total waste of money for us.

    I thought he looked **** and it seems i was right.

    Neat and tidy but nothing exciting. Lacks pace or power!

    Before we signed him there were plenty on here touting for us to sign him. You do have to wonder though how much we knew about so many of our signings.

    I think his fast moving small legs fooled you. He never swallowed up the ground ahead of him, never beat his man and left him for dead with his pace.

    I saw him do it quite a few times. There was rarely an end product, but he regularly out paced people with relative ease.

    To think of the clamour for him to start on here last season. Bang average but because he had pace he had to play according to some!

    Exactly the reason why when I see a thread titled

    Aplayer Fromleagueone

    And a poster demanding they are signed as they saw them tear Oldham apart on Sky once, I ruefully smile

    Like a cartoon character, he would make a hundred air steps before getting anywhere.

    Has anyone mentioned he was too small and lacked pace and power yet?

    He scored a hat-trick against Bradford in his first game for Swindon and attracted a lot of attention for other performances. I think it was at Charlton that I first saw him and he played well with fans around me being hopeful that we'd got a talented player on our books. I saw him a few times at the Mol but he didn't catch my eye greatly after that Charlton game.

    As someone said, he's probably at the right level with Charlton at the moment.

    Its the same when any player is touted on here. It becomes like a ****-waving competition about who knows the most about them and as such whos opinion is the most valid. Most of these culprits have probably read Wikipedia and watched YouTube to make out that they're knowledgeable about global, grassroots football. Once it goes wrong they distance themselves from their earlier comments.

    Sky sports did something a few years back where they went and stood outside grounds on deadline day and started feeding these idiots bogus (comedy) names. These prats were salivating and making up their own nonsense 'intel' about players that didn't exist.

    Embarrassing really.

    At the time was always a bizarre move for us

    We already had right backs and right wingers when bought

    My memories...his little mini legs going ten to the dozen. His tired clumsy penalty giveaway. What a volley against Dirty Leeds!
    Good luck to the lad.

    Played well against Blues away I recall, and a goal against Leeds? Other than that, meh.

    He didn't lack pace. But his legs were so little he never got anywhere!

    Far too flimsy for the Championship. Another 500k or more down the drain. Thelwell inspired presumably.

    He was highly rated by Swindon fans before we signed him and seemed to have a decent reputation with other teams he was loaned out to from Spurs......probably worth a punt at the time but looks as if he's found his level...

    we seem to have based a lot of transfers on the player having 1 good season in league 1

    I was going mad at fans and moreso at the club to give him an opportunity but credit to @Mr Wolf he was spot on.

    Him and Luongo (think that's his name) were well touted by some after the playoffs, askBatth an Henry L1 is a different standard to the championship
