So.. as I said previously, injuries notwithstanding, why haven't the non armchair coaches used him more ?

Why sign someone with his credentials and then not know how to utilise him or discover that he isn't actually up to the rigours of the Championship (which I would find surprising bearing in mind the Bundesliga experience) ? 

Well that's exactly it - either they're missing a trick or he's dog**** in training. Or something else has crept in alongside the injuries, I have no idea.

Not sure he arrived with much 'pedigree' though...

"He became so unpopular with Arsenal fans that some of them booed him when he did take to the field. Even today, he is still regarded by many as one of the club's worst-ever players, and in 2007 he was voted in at Number 3 in The Times poll of the 50 worst footballers to play in the English top flight. He was also voted the Worst Player Ever to play for Arsenal in the fanzine The Gooner."

"To get where he did, Gus Caesar clearly had more talent than nearly everyone of his generation... and it still wasn't quite enough. Gus must have known he was good, just as any pop band who has ever played the Marquee know they are destined for Madison Square Garden and an NME front cover, and just as any writer who has sent off a completed manuscript to Faber and Faber knows that he is two years away from the Booker. You trust that feeling with your life, you feel the strength and determination it gives you coursing through your veins like heroin... and it doesn't mean anything at all."

The splitting of the central defenders and Pack dropping back to take the ball out would seem an ideal role for Hegeler.  I wander whether we are flogging Pack asking him to do it and get forward and he would be even more influential further forward without dropping back to collect the all from the goalie.
