Bollocks. When he first signed for them he scored 10 goals in about 15 games as well as a few assists. IIRC he was also voted their player of the season.
Yes, but hardly ever played in his second season, nor did Sigurdsson start regularly enough in his first season to be considered 'great'. It was more an indication of how bad Hoffenheim were rather than how good Sigurdsson was to be named player of the year, considering they didn't finish that far above the releagation play off place.

His second season is irrelevant to my point you said he wasn't great and regardless of the circumstances minutes played and Hoffenheim's league position, 10 goals and 2 assists in 15 games is great for a midfielder.
