Re: Devonte Redmond
 
He's not good enough. Showed that last year.

Apart from that one game late on when I think he scored one and set up one

[QUOTE=WREXHAM TID;2426346]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: [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5QbW3QWdTw&t=200s[/url][/QUOTE]

I think there is something in this, maybe an attitude issue too but completely the wrong player for the level and tactics we are trying to play. I think he’d do ok abroad in a slower paced league

Re: Devonte Redmond
 
Hes a frustrating character because he's clearly got more than enough ability and should be an asset. Whether its his character, attitude or personality he just doesn't seem to fit. It might be that a new manager might be able to get the performances out of him, but I suspect he will ultimately be one to move on and be nothing more than a quiz question for us in the future.

In fairness he’s a footballer, Keates doesn’t like those.

I rate him. He’ll do well at another club.

We'll only know how good is he by how his career goes post Wrexham. If he starts pulling up trees elsewhere, we'll know he was another talented player wasted by poor coaching and management. If he plummets into lower league obscurity then it clearly wasn't meant to be and it can't really be blamed on us.

Read an article somewhere where Rashford said the player he most admired was redmond. He's not a keats player though, too skillful and not a 'hard worker'. The right management and system to play in and he will do well

When DR has had his chances he hasn't impressed and has looked like he can only impose himself on a game if he is given a totally free role behind the striker(s) but even then he has struggled to get on the ball and make things happen. Durrell & Jarvis have looked better bets for that role but they haven't been consistent either so I guess currently the attacking midfield role is still very much up for grabs. DR would probaly benefit with a loan spell and is a victim of us not having a reserve team for him to find some confidence and form before being thrown into first team action.

I'm all for putting the boot into Keates however, if you want players in your team who are not going to put the requisite effort then we're going to continue to struggle.

It annoys me that too many players are giving an easy ride by supporters because it's easier to get at Dean Keates or Spencer Harris.

Again, it would be nice to know why Redmond is nowhere near the starting XI when so many fans have such a high opinion of him.

The manager needs to fully explain why a player is being paid not to play on a long term basis!
