Well, there is one person on here that stood by Lowe throughout. But after leaving us St Albans City & Hemel Hempstead Town didn't think he was good enough either.

So he has genuinely got his head down and improved beyond belief.


I have a theory on why some hugely talented forward players never make the grade and some others do. There are lots of speed merchant forwards who are in and out of teams who do all the hard work then fall to bits in the part of the pitch where it counts either with a final ball or a shot. The difference between the best forwards and the others are that they are more precise.

To be regularly precise you need to practice that skill continuously, then it becomes like muscle memory. How do you do that when you’re in and out of the team? Nerves doesn’t help if you only have 10 mins here and there. You can do it on the training pitch but a match situation has so many other factors to add in.

IMO Jamal always had the potential at Barnet but in this short term view we have of players where we need results, he was given small windows of opportunity and was expected to take it instantly. Much like a lot of talented players like Shomotun, Kyei, Amaluzor etc they never were able to settle and feel like they belonged and gain any momentum.
Compare that with EMC where we’re starting to see end product after he was given time to settle.

What Jamal did which I feel that more players need to do, is forget about clinging onto playing at the highest level your agent can get you, where you’re expected to make something of the 10 minute cameos, and drop down to a level where you can play regularly and build your game.

It didn’t work straight away for Jamal but he found Hampton and he got all the relevant parts to his game to align, smoothed out and built up a huge amount of momentum where everything was second nature to him which meant he hit the ground running at Portsmouth.

We’re as much to blame as the club as supporters aren’t the most patient. How many times have we read on here, people saying that so and so from the youth team isn’t good enough after a handful of appearances? It doesn’t work that way with youth players which is why nobody can predict which will players will leave us for better things and which will fall out of the game

Mr Davids didn't like his attitude from all accounts so his opportunities were limited when he should have had chances ahead of the likes of Crawford and Mengarink . MA was in a position where he was trying to win a league and opted for experience in MacDonald, Akinde & Gash so it was correct that he was allowed to move on & fair play for the way he has bounced back.Totally agree its about playing games which is where the likes of Shomotun, kyei etc have suffered from the lack of a u23/ reserve team playing regular competitive football week in week out.

Article says they are staying part time to accommodate keeping other players at the club.

He confirmed that he was going part time when one of our fans questioned him on twitter when he announced he was off.

£2 million for Lowe is a bargain in today's market. Really pleased for him.
