Agreed, a good holding midfielder who got stuck in when it mattered, reminded me of another local lad & ex boro player Jamie Pollock.
I think the problem was that he wasnt getting enough games, at the time we did have similar midfield players like Boateng...who we sold to Hull...er...perhaps we should have kept one of them at least.
I think the problem was not giving him enough games it was sorting out his off the field activities. He had fallen in with some rather iffy mates and was fast gaining a bad boy reputation which Steve Gibson was not happy with. He was in fact banned from every licensed premises in Stockton. Get rid was the answer and so Boro did.

Didn't know that,kht---that's a bit sad, can't be classed as another Bellamy or a Joey Barton though surely.
They should have provided him with a level headed minder, it could have saved Steve Gibson, a brilliant guy, millions.
