Imagine jese and Traore tearing down either side, leaving full backs in their wake, only to the put the ball in the box and Negredo arrive 30 seconds later!


Exactly this it's great having attacking quick wingers if your striker is A either as quick as them or is willing to gamble 99% of the time and the runners from midfield are able to get there as well.

I've only seen Jesé play a handful of times, I think he is an exciting prospect for us if he finds form... is he a pacey winger? Or just quicker than Stuani or Downing say




Careful, that's defamation!!! He could sue :D


Or he might slap me like he did Mascherano.

And like I said earlier, why downplay his set piece ability? In a side that struggled to create chances that could well be our best chance of scoring in quite a few games and it's an area we're particularly weak in despite having quite a lot of good headers of the ball.


Exactly. If I had to watch Forshaw put another corner straight onto Andy Carroll's head on Saturday I'd have screamed myself ho***.


Funnily enough this is one of my biggest frustrations too. Against Liverpool I lost count at around 6 set pieces that Traore won in and around the box (including corners) and yet not one of those set pieces caused Liverpool any problems. A proper set piece specialist would be most beneficial. I once thought Downing could have been that for us but his delivery isn't what it was these days. Was it one of the recent games (West Ham) when I watched him take a set piece and loft it over everyone's head and straight out of play?

Remember when Schteve would go 4 up top?! Well that's got nothing on AK's replacement Juninho, who is going for the Brazilian inspired 4-2-2-2 formation:


------------------------- Valdes ---------------------------

------------- Chambo ------ Gibbo --------------------

-- Traore -- Snodgrass -- Bojan ----- Jese -------

--------- Bamford ----------------Ramirez -----------

--------------- Negredo -- Gestede ------------------


I do apologise. Really need some real news.

Probably just wishful thinking, but is there any chance this Ramirez thing is just a loan move until he gets his life sorted out?


A bit like Hughes saying they haven't received any 'bids' for Bojan, then it came out that we might only be looking at a loan deal for him.

Snodgrass is a right footed left winger


No he's not.


Wrong way around. Knew what I meant!! Either way, he isn't a direct replacement for ramirez


No he's not but he can definitely play either side and sure he's played central before too.

Don't know whether it's already been posted but Robert Snodgrass is allegedly being shown around Rockliffe today.


Not seen anyone mention it yet. That sounds promising. Did that info come from a reliable source?


Gaston told someone this morning apparently, wait a minute, hes not reliable.

    • What information would make people change their minds? How about gay role models, who have public platforms to share their stories and lifestyles which were unavailable in the 1960s? How about incontrovertible scientific evidence that old assumptions about homosexuality (it's a perversion, it can be cured, etc) were wrong, making it easy to debunk those inaccurate old stereotypes? How about evidence of the damage homophobia can cause on both a personal and societal level? You're right that religion plays a big part in these matters, but ignorance is a bigger problem. Nobody had the internet when homosexuality was outlawed in the UK, or a thousand public platforms for debating right and wrong with people from all over the world. Every nation's citizens lived in relative ignorance, largely believing what they were told by their elders and betters. The Saudis still have to, because their internet is censored centrally. If they could access the same panoply of information we can, I suspect the majority would at least question or even soften their attitudes towards same-sex relationships, even if their religion will always prevent them embracing it. Instead, the Saudis are only allowed to access content their government has approved. Their government disapproves of homosexuality, so that's the only version of the truth people get to see. Lack of information = lack of knowledge = lack of tolerance. Apologies to the mods: I know we're way off topic here.
    • When Bryan English joined from Chelsea. He's since gone back to Chelsea and he's their medical director.
    • I think we won a medical award of some description during Karankas time, that does ring a bell
    • He's a much better footballer (especially technically) than I think anyone really thought when he signed. I just assumed he was another Warnock ogre but he really does seem like a very good player at this level. 
    • I thought we won some kind of award a few years ago?  Might have been medical rather than sports science, mind.
