Utaka......deserves a 2nd (well 4th or 5th) chance
I agree with Paul Hart that Utaka's best position is centre forward,...well I think we can all agree on that.
We all know he has pace.....the skill to take on players, it's just the end product that is lacking. Almost a modern LuaLua
He seemed to enjoy himself Monday ...now I don't know if that's because:
a) No pressure game
b) Had something to prove after the penalty miss at Ewood
c) Putting himself in the shop window
I think he still has something to offer on a regular basis. (This based on a very limited transfer fund.)
Him and Crouch up front, with Niko playing a free role behind them. The flicks from Crouch, and the pace of John could prove to be quite damaging.
It's just a shame we haven't got 3 or 4 'meaningless' games left for John to show us what he can do.
Hopefully Sunday will give us an indication.
