Having looked on the verge of making a big impact based on his performances towards the end of last season – and in the Checkatrade Trophy – Ryan Haynes has disappointed this season. His defending hasn’t improved despite there being signs that he was getting better. Worst of all, as someone who can just glide past defenders with ease, his lack of a final product this season – excluding that audacious piece of skill against Luton – has been close to maddening.
The frustration with Ryan Haynes isn’t that he’s been especially bad, but that he has shown that he’s capable of far better and he’s yet to kick on. 75 league appearances into his career, the patience is starting to wear thin with him. Next season is possible a make-or-break one for Haynes, he has the talent to be a devastating player with the potential to play in the Championship if he can really put it all together, if not, then it’s likely he will be knocking around the lower leagues, despite his obvious talent.
