A classic example of why I hold The Fishy's opinion on football in such high regard.

Plenty of egg on faces from that thread.

I guessed he'd be a bit-part, 4th choice midfielder, but he's made 40 appearances in the Conference and F.A. Cup and has been a starter in over three quarters of those games!

A competent enough player at this level though more goals/assists would have been nice.

I'm more than happy to step forward and say I still think he is excrement.

"An astute signing is Clay.......LJL is instantly no longer the focus of everybodies attention and the sh1t can fly somewhere else, leaving him to relax and score thousands of goals."

My own words above from the original Clay has signed thread....almost right about the effect on LJL    

I am suprised he carried off that trophy, yes he has been a steady presence in the midfield and has dovetailed nicely with Disley but
I am extremely suprised he beat Nsiala to it, do we know if voting was restricted to people under 23 at the time of the presentation night?
Makreth and Nsiala have recently turned 23 so does that rule them out? If so Clay's competition for this award would have been..Draper, Bostock, Walker, Bemrose, Hamish and Chappel.

It's not so much that he wasn't an OK player when he signed, it was more that we were in the "hairs on the back of your neck" stage at the time. So, Pittman & Clay as unknowns were very much a disappointment to supporters waiting for the big signing they were promised.

Indeed. And of course people can only comment on what they see at the time can't they? What were people on here supposed to say - " Wow, fantastic, what a signing the Mainers have just made. Promotion will be assured now - Ive heard he is like Joe Waters and Lew Chatterley rolled into one..."

He has done well, no doubt about it but lets not get carried away.Why berate people for their opinions at the time? Football is all about opinions and all of us are just guessing aren't we? I remember being less than enthused when Alan Buckley was first appointed and made up when Newell was appointed but at the time both opinions were perfectly valid. The other alternative is not to comment till each player/manager has had several seasons to make sure our opinion is right.
