🏴 Head Honcho
I thought he was playing superbly at the time of his injury. In fact, I'm fairly certain he was also being linked with a move to West Ham at the time.
Sadly folk prefer to focus on the negatives, and his dip in form - which was over 18 months ago, and he'd long since recovered from at the time of his injury.
The previous season was a difficult one for him IMHO and he was making simple things look difficult. It probably wasnt helped that he had zero competition.
However he was playing the best he had done prior to his injury.
Iversen however is a different level to Declan. He just provides confidence and a real presence that you know he will do a good job. I can only think of one mistake in the whole of his time with us, this despite playing behind a different back four/five every match under Neil.
He reminds me of Carlo Nash.
He will only get better and getting him back next season is fantastic news.
Declan will no doubt be inspired to fight for his place in the side and will need to take his chance in Cups or any games Daniel misses.
I genuinely think Iversen will gain us a fair amount of points on his own next season, I really rate him.
