Always thought he had a lot of potential and he looked half decent when he played for us. Was a bit disappointed we let him go too but he does have that look about him where he thinks he doesn't have to try but still walk into the team.
The fact he hasn't really kicked on since leaving us, regardless of the few cracking goals which lets face it, even Charlie Adam has put them in the top bin a few times, doesn't mean he's suddenly reaching that potential.
If it had been a mistake getting rid then I think he would have been lighting up his division by now but doesn't seem to be any sign of it, forgot he even existed to be honest.
Or maybe he has reached his potential and he was just another of the many players that have been and will be, hyped up to be better than what they are.
