He has played about 15 games and played a couple of good ones in that. Don’t judge to quickly.
I can name a few triple premiership players that took many years before showing their best....
Eggs looks very different from a young Bachar to my eyes.
Bachar always looked like he was putting in the effort. He was also pretty daring with the ball, often running forward and boldly going for the riskier attacking options. Some would criticise a skill error from trying to do too much, he was never timid with the ball.
But there is something to be said for believing in a player and giving him time.
Bachar was told he’d be getting 22 games with us, so he is an example of a player needing a coach to believe in him.
Would it be worth it to guarantee 22 games for Eggy this year?
We’ll never know the answer, but one thing for certain is it’s a lot harder to put unconditional faith in any young player when you have a premiership squad.
