On our panicking left back, turned utility man

Dean Moxey joined us in the summer- a typical Dougie Freedman signing. He’s spent his career in the football league and had grown to be a decent Championship player. Costing no transfer fee, I thought this was a good signing.

We needed a left back who would be solid and consistent. Did we get one in the form of Moxey? Nooooo.

The bright-haired former Derby County player got off to a shocker; his first touches in a competitive game saw him play a striker in through on goal. Sounds pretty good until you realise that he played an opposition striker- namely Watford’s Troy Deeney.

More and more appearances came his way though, as he continued as an incredibly shaky left back. I have to be careful with what I say as last time I checked, his wife was following @VitalBolton.

There is a genuinely good player within himself, though and he showed glimpses of quality: his strikes against Charlton and Liverpool. He’s tall, athletic and good on the ball. However, what has ruined his Wanderers career so far is his panicking.

He arrived at The Macron with a glowing reputation from Palace fans who loved the man. However, poor decisions in the box and on the ball mean that he may well find himself fighting for his Championship future this summer.
