We paid £1.3m for this wild card and, as things stand, it is looking very bad business indeed. After just one outing as a sub, he was rapidly shipped off to Birmingham where he has played just one game - despite the woeful start they have had to the season - and word on the ground is that they want rid. Desperately want rid.
There's all this talk about how talented the boy is but you can have all the talent in the world and if the attitude is wrong, you will get nowhere. If these rumours are true and Morrison has upset the apple cart in Birmingham too, then he may have pressed the self destruct button once too often. Allardyce is not going to welcome him back with open arms is he? He crucified the youngsters who tried against Wigan; how will he man manage an outright delinquent?
Of course, we are dealing with speculation at the moment and it seems as if Morrison can only return if we agree to the termination of the loan deal. Who knows, with Birmingham struggling, Morrison may yet outlast Clark and actually find a manager he can get on with. Miracles do happen apparently.
