Thornton and Davies weren't pushed away by the manager of the club. Muzzy was. Besides there's no confirmation from anyone that he actually failed to turn up, unless I've missed it.
A player used to scoring goals, used to playing 4-4-2. Gets his first pro contract, thinks he's made a step up but footballing wise he'd gone backwards to the dinosaur years.
He came as a striker and Les asked him to play 'long distance running' in the oppositions half on his own, constantly outnumbered and with worse support than Wigan.
It's no wonder he's pished off. A teacher would be pished off if he/she was told to teach something without using any handouts, an OHP, a black/white board etc, just allowed to use their voice.
Deserves his chance under RM in 4-4-2 and then we can finally judge how good he is if he gets a run of games.
EDIT: Not saying what he did was right, but I can see his point. Nothing like Thornton/Davies though.
