I've never fully seen the Ibini hype tbh. He goes missing far too much for my liking.
IMO he offers nothing that Champness isn't currently giving us. And the thing I see Champness offering that Ibini doesn't is continual confidence - too often I've seen Ibini go thru the motions when his team isn't firing, and IMO he is a terrible passenger. Champness currently plays without any restrictions.
And I don't see him as a striker to replace O'Donovan, which is what we need as priority.
