It’s the hype that kills ya.
This morning I fire up the iMac and see that Troy Parrott has won rave reviews for his appearance against Accrington last night. Here are just a couple of supportive notices, there were a lot more. All written by people with greater powers of appreciation than I.
Looking for Parrott’s best actions, there was very little there. So it occurred to me that maybe I was missing something by just looking for goals and assists, etc. but the broader the search went, the less there was to be found.
The moral of the story here is I don’t know if Troy is going to make it, but I do know that grabbing half a dozen social media comments from ‘civilians’ without establishing the facts, creates disinformation.
So this isn’t about opinions differing. Whilst some fans clearly enjoyed watching Troy play, the reality is that he did not play well.
Here are the highlights.
