Reach came in under a huge price tag and was shunted to left back to cover for our own poor recruitment. He has since been very good for us.
I don't think it's as much as he goes hiding with good players around him, he just stands out less. Reach is a consistent 7 out of 10 player, this stood out in our poor period and now he just looks like an important part of a very good side.
He plays like a very good academy product, does everything by the book, is pretty consistent and has a great engine and excellent all round fitness levels.
Not every player in your team is going to be a leader or one to grab the game by the scruff of the neck, but looking around at our squad I don't see many others like that either.
Reach has played 144 games for us already and at 26 he's coming to the peak of his career, and unless we get a good offer I think we'd be mad to let him go.
