TTU Awards 2010/2011: Flop of the Season

Posted by on Jun 15, 2011 in TTU Awards | 3 Comments

It’s perhaps unfair to blame all the miseries of one club on one man, and Kris Boyd’s improvement in fortunes on swapping the red of Teesside for Trentside only heaps further ignominy on Project Strachan; but the disjunct between the reputation of a man with 174 goals plundered north of Hadrian’s Wall and the miserable nature of his performances for Boro was startling. He scored six times, but it was the heavy lidded failure to look interested that shocked. None of this may be his fault with the club in turmoil, but his rumoured £30,000 a week wages justify his selection.

Elsewhere, Steve Coppell’s early departure from Ashton Gate was deflating, Alan Lee and Ross McCormack struggled in the West Riding, Charlie Austin’s transition to the Championship was abject and Jim Gannon self destructed at Vale Park.

    Have to say Boyd gets my vote. He looked a little more lively in a creative Forest side, but only a little. A centre-forward has to offer much, much more than just finishing to do well in the senior English leagues.

    That mention for Charlie Austin is a bit unfair, though. He got injured in March and, despite messageboard rumours of off-field problems (probably unfounded then), that was the end of his season.
