FWIW I think Vela could well have come good. Clear pedigree there and great feedback before he signed.
I was hoping so too - he could have been the pick of the bunch according to some reports - unfortunately it didn't happen for him at Hibs and obviously JR didn't fancy him at all as he never got a sniff.
I should be keeping my head down on a thread like this given how critical I was of Newall earlier in the season but it's only fair to give him credit for turning things round and becoming an important player for us.
Shirked 50/50s early. Last night he went in for two straight on the bounce. What a difference. Complete baller and looks very comfortable in a midfield two central. Donít think heís a left winger. Centrally though he has been a revelation.
All three, doidge, Newell and now Jackson have really turned it around.
Up until Porteous got injured Jackson was pretty much a done deal to Bolton if you believe the press. Now looks a very strong centre half option.
