Yeah, with more games he should be a really good player for us. Good engine, good passing, not afraid to carry the ball, and made some crucial tackles as well. Basically a better version of what Dimas was two years ago.

I was impressed with Herd. Once fully fit he could do for us this year what Brillante did for FC last season

i can see our fans hating him when he misses a tackle or misplaces a pass.

he could make a game saving tackle or score a screamer to win us a game and our fans will still say he's **** because of two mistakes he made in round one and they already have their mind made up.

If he wears an active group sub culture t shirt then some of our fans will love him forever even if he does nothing else.

whats the context to this comment? I've never herd of the guy, let alone seen him play. 

THAT, and it's off season. I need to read something.

Most relevant bit re: signing for WSW

Quote

I felt it was an opportunity I had to take.

It’s a great environment to be in, probably the most professional environment I’ve been in since I was at Villa. No disrespect to the lower-league clubs in England, but back here they leave no stone unturned and it’s nice to be in there and getting tested every day as a player and a person.

It’s been awesome. I’ve learnt more stuff in three months than I had in the last three or four years in England.

It was great to have Tony Popovic as coach, I loved the discipline he brought to the group, so while I’m disappointed I won’t be playing under him now he’s gone to Turkey, I learnt a lot from him and look forward to taking that into this season in the Red & Black.

The practice I got from getting used to constant changes of managers in England will stand me in good stead. We’re all professionals at the Wanderers, so we’ll all get on with the job while the club sorts out the coaching situation.

Released a year early. What a waste of talent and a squad position.

I doubt anything would have changed. He played a bunch of games after his first return in January, and then left again.
