What frustrates me with shankland is that all Ian mcall really had to do was get him physically fit and the rest fell into place.
Decided to start a football blog, feel free to have a read here.

We've all heard the history about Shankland and his fitness and his attitude etc.

And unless we were there, working with the lad in his formative years, we can never know.

What we do know is that he's turned into a player. We also know that a good manager recognises potential and inspires young talents to work hard. That's assuming they want to work and have the requisite desire to succeed. Some develop later and only put in the effort when they realise that they have to, and some of those only realise when it's too late. At 24, there's no doubt Shankland is a late bloomer. The speculations of his history over the last 7/8 years, fuck knows.
