Probably wearing cherry tinted spectacles....to be honest, thought he was a decent referee for the Championship....tried to let game flow when he could...showed the card when he had to and seemed to work well with linesmen...we will have a lot worse than him before season is out...think Tindall is in for a rude awakening if he thinks that was bad...
If we were confident that Maddison could slot into the dressing room without being disruptful and his wages were sensible I don't see a problem in signing him.
He might not be good enough for this level but who knows he might flourish at a bigger club with better players around him.
The other side of that is many clubs must have done their homework and the fact that no one is signing him is a worry.
Maybe he's just asking for stupid money and there's nothing more to it than that 🤷♂️
Agree regarding Maddison. Every transfer is a risk, his would be a bigger risk than most, and there is no guarantee that we'd be able to get the best out of him. But if his wage demands are favourable, I'd be willing to give him a go. His best football is undoubtedly in the number 10 role, but at Peterborough he was at times just as effective when out wide (at Hull he was poor out wide, but he barely had any games).
You'd hope that maybe this summer has been a bit of a wake up call for him regarding his demands, as it's not like he has a queue of suitors at his door.
Also think you're right in terms of us being in for Roberts. If we get him, I cannot see us shelling out on a 2nd similar player.
