No Thanks: Ryan Amoo
Will Grigg catches fire, Sunderland pay £4m for him. Ryan Amoo catches fire and immediately someone puts it out and we hardly hear from him again. Such is life.
In his early Imps days he actually looked a half decent player. He had a big role in Deehan and Schofield’s exciting side of late 2006, but following his two-goal salvo against Peterborough his form dropped off the side of a cliff. He looked lightweight and at times uninterested.
Still, the management team liked him and he somehow kept getting games, right up until the end of Schofield’s reign. Once Jacko came in he decided he didn’t fancy him one bit, something I agreed with him on. I rarely agreed with Peter Jackson so that tells you everything you need to know about Amoo.
He played 63 times for Lincoln, with only one of those games memorable at all.
The connection? Before the Imps he’d played a handful of games for the Cobblers, but drifted into non league. Aside from one December afternoon, as far as I’m concerned. He could have stayed there.
