Sig- Our- Forgotten- Son
Well it seems not so long ago that I rubbed my hands together with glee, a massive smile on my face and a 'whoop whoop' loudly shouted.
It was with great excitement that we had signed a player who was a prolific scoring machine from midfield, on loan at the Swans and ripped it up in the Premiership seven goals and four assists in such a short period of time.....MAGIC! Gylfi Sigurdsson, a player with dead ball skills and a knack for finding the net with runs from midfield that excited me so much, finally a player that can be a constant goal threat from a key area.
Fast forward six months and I feel depressed at the lack of chances afforded to him, lack of chances taken by him and overall fairly miffed at how he has failed so far. Is it a bad patch? Is it the system? Reading apparently offered a 10m fee for him in Jan, so I'm wondering for a player that has not featured at all really.....then why not sell?
AVB states that he is a player he has high hopes for but, really? Is this just to be nice? From what I can see he really is not an AVB player. Levy bought him with the transfer board IMO. The fact is if he does not score in a game some say he does not do much more for the team. I for one would love to see him kick on but, with Lewis Holtby now in I can't see much chance for him. So again why did we not sell? just to save face, Mr Levy??
