I read the news about Albrighton today and I was shocked at the responses.
Let me state and regular readers will know this, that I have always been a 100% supporter of Marc. In the reserves he was one of the best in the country at that level, he scored and the quality of crosses was fantastic.
He should have broke through in MON’s last season and especially when Downing was struggling and MON was foolish not to. We then had a change of manager and under Houllier he was progressing nicely and looking good. However then Lerner made a disaster appointment and restricted by negative thinking Marc went backwards.
He still has for the qualities to be a bloody good Premier League player. He just needs a manager to realise he is a right footed winger and not like others who can cut in from the left. People say he is one footed, well so is N’Zogbia. People say he is not good defensively, well is N’Zogbia ?
Given a chance with a manager who believes in attacking football. A manager who wants a winger to do the simple things (ie. cross balls) instead of bloody cutting in then Albrighton has it.
He is still young enough to get over the scars of last season, all he needs is a proper chance in the PROPER position.
