Showed glimpses but we got him a year or two too late, his legs aren't the same, reads the game very well but was getting caught out with the pace of the game too often. I don't think it'll be a pay off, if I remember rightly it was a 2 year deal but he could leave after 1 if he wished.
Edit. Just read the above post re we had the option.
Hecky has said there will be a sizeable turnover of players. Did fine imho but doesn't fit the profile of a Hecky player. With porteous hopefully back and the Barnsley player likely to sign we don't need cover in defence. Good luck to the Aussie captain.
Empty Slivka but keep Whittaker. Slivka has contributed more this season than Whittaker has.
Whittaker was brought in as a squad player who can fill in when required. Heís played left back, right back, centre back and centre midfield - done a good job IMO. Never gonna be first choice but itís a long season.
Slivka was brought in to challenge for a centre midfield role and develop to fulfil his potential, be an asset and a starter. Heís a decent player but it doesnít look like heís going to be first choice. Hasnít really pushed on and made himself indispensable. Better that he moves on and we bring in some fresh blood IMO.
