My intention in asking what style suit Spann was not to ridicule the player.
It's just that I felt an assumption was made that because Wrexham is in the English 2nd Division, it is assumed that they play "boom kick" football and somehow that style is "beneath" players like Spann.
Perhaps Wrexham does play helicopter football. I never really see dem. What I do know is that Carlos Edwards and Dennis Lawrence in particular have set a certain standard. One that is apparently difficult for players after them to uphold.
Lest we forget, there is another Trinbagonian plying his trade at Wrexham. A player upon whom high hopes rested domestically but who cannot get a regular run in the first team. That player is Josh Johnson. Perhaps he's been unlucky with injuries. Perhaps the coach have a grudge against him. Perhaps he simply not good enough to command a regular place in the team.
What is evident is the LEAP required from our local professional football to professional football abroad. Now this is essentially 3rd division English Football. Imagine what International football must be like and it gives you an idea of just how far behind we truly are.....as if the U 17 results & performances in the recent WC didn't clue you in in the first place.
Nah. Maybe I shoulda make it clearer... is not Wrexham playing that kinda ball. Is their opponents. Is the fans themselves saying that the "nice" football Wrexham trying to play cyah work in that division. That division is exactly like I describe it. Bruising, physical, ugly football. Some of the Wrexham players could cope with the opposition. Some, like Silvio, can't. He eh able with that style of ball. Add to that his defensive deficiencies and the step up from PFL standard, and he seeing pressure. On the positive side, they say he slowly getting more used to it. Wrexham still getting beat up by everybody, though.
