I think Boro fans are saying he's 'past it' or 'his legs have gone' are comparing him to his Championship team of the season peak. He's not at that level now (you can see him struggling when running back towards his own goal after a furore up field these days), but he's still a steady performer at this level.
I wish him nothing but good luck and all the best. Don’t think I’ve ever heard a bad word from him or about him in all his time at the club. Has to be one of our best value signings of all time and a true ambassador for the club. I think all things equal he would of stayed but I suspect they’ve given him a longer deal than we offered. Not sure he has the legs any more to play the marauding LB any more by getting forward, he was never the quickest and always looks like he’s treading water when he comes up against someone with a bit of pace. Reckon he’s probably more suited to CB now. The fact we were after that Celtic lad suggests we wanted a new LB anyway. What’s the chances Clayton ends up at Brum too.
