For the most part I think people are talking in relative terms. Langdon is a hero because he gets the most out of his skills and assets. People want Oliver to be a superstar so the bar is set much higher.

Saying that, I've never said Oliver is sh*t.
I've always loved Oliver but you nailed it by saying the potential is there for him to be Top 5 players in the comp. And I've always loved Langdon. Was rapt we got him. Not for his kicking but for the run, the effort and the point of difference he provides to our mids. He's just always there and is super consistent which has been a massive problem for the players at our club.

This is the part I don't get about this board, on bad Oliver disposal day he's the same as a good Langdon day. We say Oliver is sh*t but Langdon is a hero.
Different standards but my biggest issue with Oliver isn't his actual disposal, it is when he breaks clear with the ball then does a stupid momentum-draining handball. campaigner YOU ARE PROBABLY OUR FASTEST MID OVER 20M BACK YOURSELF
