The 20 year-old midfielder played 17 times for the Championship side this season in what is his fourth spell out on loan in the last couple of seasons as he builds his first-team experience in the lower leagues.
Lundstram has spent time at Yeovil Town, Leyton Orient and Doncaster racking up 35 appearances before making the temporary switch to Bloomfield Road in August.

I may be wrong but I get the feeling this may be an attitude issue, speaking to one or two people "in the know", they seem to think he's got a big time Charlie persona without having much to back it up.
Hope I'm wrong but I think we can forget about John as far as we're concerned, hopefully he carves out a decent career for himself at a lower level.

You can blame the board for loads of things but underselling players isn’t one of them.

Realistically we can forget him as cover as he is clearly not up to it.

He's technically very good; two footed, decent passing range and accuracy, positionally very assured. What he isn't is quick. Or particularly dynamic. Or full of energy. He's in a similar mould to Michael Carrick. Neat and tidy, but not always eye-catching.
He did extremely well in the England junior teams alongside Ross Barkley, but I feel like his confidence might have been hit by losing the captaincy (to Conor Coady of Liverpool I think), and then being made to play wide right of midfield, and then dropped altogether at the Under 20s World Cup 18 months ago.

" When he made his debut for us the majority of Hibs fans were very impressed. He had a good few tricks and was fast and direct. It was refreshing to see a player always look to take a man on. However his final ball often let him down.
Then Stubbs changed our formation around focusing on wing backs, thus eliminating wingers, and since that we have been on great form only losing 1 out the last 15, so Kennedy didn't get a look in. He had the chance to be the hero in our League Cup Quarter Final against Dundee United, which after a 3-3 draw in 120 minutes went to penalties, he stepped up with the chance to win it for us - missed. Then they scored and we missed again, goodbye Semi Final.
I feel if he continues to develop that he has all the attributes to be a decent player. Mainly his final delivery."
So, the "failure" there does appear to boil down to some missed opportunities on Kennedy's part, but also was affected considerably by a tactical change that worked for the club, but not Matty.
