Auf Wiedersehen, Pet
This I agree with, his heart does not seem in it anymore since last season. That wolves game when he got sent off was like he could not be bothered anymore. Yes our defence does not help itself but I still think he can do better with some of the goals this season and last. He likes to pull off the Hollywood saves when we are 4 nil down , not at nil nil or 1 down.
Seems arrogant as well.
Again, that was another problem he reportedly had at Leverkusen, can pull off absolute worldies when it comes to difficult saves but then will concede a goal or make a mistake that would be deemed a standard run of the mill save.
He just appears to be mentally weak as a footballer, ie motivation, concentration, composure etc
Reminds me of David James, could be world class 89mins but 1min destroyed everything.
Wouldnt surprise me if Leno is a solid GK at like 35 or something when he mentally matures in football.
I'm convinced the best thing for Leno's career is to knock up his missus and have kids!
