Default Re: Devonte Redmond

Out of every player in the squad Devonte is probably the most gifted and that is including Jarvis and Davies. Them three just named would and should walk into a team that was tactically more attacking. The issue we have is Keates and Darlington dont play attacking free flowing football, they keep it tight and defend and to be honest with you, they play a horrible tactic to watch. Before Keates we used to play the Wrexham way, we were a lot better to watch and played the game as it should be played. I hope that a new manager comes in and changes the style in which we play, so we are more attacking, play the ball on the floor, possession based team that makes things happen. Until that day happens, we will be watching a midfield of Harris and Young, both playing defensive midfield with no creativity at all, meaning our only hope is long ball over midfield into our strikers.

Keates has no idea and when he plays our creative midfielders he can only fit them in out wide. Probably our two best creative midfielders we have had whilst I was growing up were Peter Ward and Darren Ferguson, and both of them played in centre midfield.

So the answer to the question is its management choice, that's why our better players are not being put into the starting line up and we are watching crap football every week.

He’s the most gifted? How do you know? He might be.

He is a skilful player but avoids any form of physical contact such as tackles or headers , so in midfield he is a luxury we can’t afford.
If he was decent he would have been snapped up on loan by somebody.

Gifted he may be but committed i never saw last season. I dont give a toss about tactics - you can want the ball and get it and i never saw that. As said i can only hope that a management structure that knows how to manage players and their ego's can get something from him otherwise get rid.

It's not form why he has been dropped out of sight (if it was there a lot of other contenders).
He probably does not run enough in training. One rumour I heard is that if you don't run enough in training you don't get picked regardless of previous performance in actual games. DK is obsessed with stats and picks teams based on who has ran the furthest in training sessions.
Explains one particular regular!!
Another one is that he apparently he sends the squad on 12k runs on days before matches - if true I think it needs pointing out to DK that they are training for a ruddy football match not a marathon. Gary Bennett would have never got in a DK side.
I will emphasise that I have heard the above 3rd hand and cannot confirm if true - but it does explain a lot.

Its the chicken and the egg scenario for Redmond. The lower he plays the worse he looks as he isn't the type to throw himself into tackles and win headers. He also can't play on bad pitches and hoof ball.

He'd be much better suited to a league 1 side but if you aren't playing in the conference you don't get the moves up the leagues.

The first 5 mins of these highlights show you how good he could be: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5QbW3QWdTw&t=200s

Managers and coaching make a massive difference to players, but ultimately something has to come from the player to engage with that.

Pride is something plenty of players seem to have lost in the modern game. You're right, we owe him nothing.
