Surely he drifted? After that Europa league season he didn't do anything. Bertrand wasn't pulling up any trees that season, yet he couldn't really dislodge him...and he was flogged out on loan the following season with Targett considered the better option (Targett is the better player IMO).

I think the club had to make a choice between McQueen and Targett and they opted for Targett in the immediate term - good idea really, given that he earned us £15m!

I don't get our secrecy on injuries either, we've always been like it. It's very, very peculiar.

Was very much like this with J-Rod too, IIRC.

His Europa league season was no great shakes, he played less games the following season, but don't think he regressed to any extent, trying to progress under Pellegrino was always going to be a problem (or Hughes). Don't think there was much to choose between Targett and McQueen (personally thought McQueen had a bit more about him and was more flexible being a MF really) but in the end its about opinions. Really don't care too much, what irritates the hell out of me is the secrecy, he's still our player, and one of our own, and would still have made a decent player at Championship level or above so we have lost out on what would probably have been a half decent fee.

The secrecy thing? Yep. We had to find out via media leaks and all sorts.

It's like they try to hide the bad news, but given that he hasn't been seen for 2 years, it seems pretty pointless.

It seems unlikely certainly at this level and almost impossible here with Ralph's style of football which demands supreme fitness, stamina and aggression.

Yeah, there's no way that anybody could possibly come back from a horrendous knee injury and ever be a successful part of a Hasnehuttl team is there.

A shame really, otherwise that Danny Ings could have been an excellent signing.
