Not sure how that happens. Itís a bit like saying letís wait until he is the worlds best (or worst) RB before valuing him. His value should be that of a young player in a defensive position with promise. If he ends up being a crock then more the fool us for buying him but similarly we should get full benefit for taking the risk if he turns into a world beater.

IMO - FWIW - Joel Ward if he plays all season the player ratings would likely be lowest 5 / highest 8 - (not getting into how many performances were 5 / how many were 6 etc etc) this then that would indicate that his reasonable season average performance would likely be around 6.5 - 7 - which isnt bad for a club our size / place in the league.
So to replace him & bring in a specialist defender who would likely return an average score of say 7.5 would cost ?
For a position where we are not crying out for an upgrade ( other than for injuries which pretty much applies to the whole defensive lineup - i.e we have more pressing needs / places to spend our transfer budget)

A decent performance by Ward against Brighton, punctuated by a common lapse, leading to their equalizer.

Itís becoming quite tedious to blame such occurrences on the occupational hazard of most footballers.
