That's not the type of talent we need you to identify 🤨

I dunno. If we had a keeper with a Beyonce / Kardashian type butt, they'd just need to stand facing the crowd the whole game. 😁

I can't just leave that low hanging fruit dangling.....

I was just waiting for that reply. I’m sure CT didn’t reply as he didn’t want to embarrass his son on here.

I wonder if there's a rule in the FA laws of the game that says players can't have implants? Kim Kardashian's *** would be a great shot-stopper, which is ironic considering she's been the cause of many unclean sheets over the years.

Actually, player implants probably aren't banned, because I'm pretty sure Lee Tomlin had a stomach implant for a while.

For some strange reason Woody thinks other teams would have a keen interest in watching and possibly buying our players, now I would have thought people would be interested in something that works and not faulty. This possibly  leads me to believe Woody thinks he is doing a good job and someone needs to have a word because he wants to keep the squad and strengthen it. The later, as in strengthening is not hard to achieve because let’s face it anyone who can put a ball in the net, preferably the opposing team, pass and receive, defend, actually be mobile will stand a pretty good chance. I think there is secret message behind his statement in, expect the same team to be playing it’s going to be hard dumping s@@t.

You don't like butts😲

A shapely butt with firm shaped breasts for me any day. . I can’t stand big saggy water balloons or pumped up butts, and I honest don’t get why people like them. I know a pretty fit guy who goes nuts over big chubby women, honestly I thought it was a wind up but I promise you I’m not lying.

Nothing wrong with liking a bit of meat on your bones!

Back on topic, and re the comment about people watching our players, it'd be strange if they weren't. We have a scattering of internationals, some renowned Championship players, we've spent most of the last five years knocking on the door of the playoffs, and we're clearly in a mess right now. Agents and avaricious managers will be circling like vultures, hoping they can land Britt, Randolph or the other sellable components of our squad at a bargain price.

Nobody, and I think I can say this with confidence, will be surveying Browne or Gestede. But when you consider how many Championship clubs would love to have our best players, I can imagine every match at the Riverside has a decent number of scouts in attendance.

The hell of it is, if we did manage to offload Gestede, I could see him doing a great job for another club...provided he managed to stay injury-free.

But yeah, the Riverside must be like a cattle market right now, with other clubs looking to line up bids for January.

Best derailment of 2019.

I'm not sure Gestede will ever do a great job again. He had one prolific season at Blackburn, but (a) it was five years ago and (b) he was playing alongside Jordan Rhodes. It was one of those partnerships that just naturally clicked, but he hasn't replicated that relationship or form anywhere before or since. Plus, his size means he's probably viewed by many prospective clubs as a lone striker - hold it up and knock on to ACMs, etc.

And as you point out, he's perpetually injured. That's a shame for any professional sportsperson, but does rather mean his career is likely to fade away rather than burn out.

To me, Gestede's signing reflects everything that's wrong with modern football. And I suspect the absence of interest from other clubs up til now reflects the fact that all his Christmases came at once when he was offered his current contract. He won't be that lucky twice.

I don't think his contract is why clubs aren't looking at him... I think it's more down to the fact he's managed a grand total of 430 minutes of football in the last 2 years. Or even better 4 goals in 3 years.

    • Have to admit that it is refreshing to see a team playing positive football with minimal diving and making two passes to move forty yards instead of reaching double figures..  suppose it is sort of route one in the sense that the ball is passed into the opposition half as quickly as possible but I could watch stuff like that all day..  Italy for the Cup
    • Yeah disasterclass that one. I remember seeing him when he first debuted for Milan, he scored an absolute screamer against juventus (might not have been his first game but very close to it) and he looked very special.  That was a time where Milan had a different approach to youth thought, they were getting into the team then sold off for whatever they could get. It wouldn't happen right now. 
    • Milan must be kicking themselves for binning Locatelli so early. Developing into a world class midfielder.
    • It's not the money, it's the power that comes with the position he's in. A big fish in a small pond, that's what he's clinging on to. A bit sad really.
    • After my Scotland comment this probably won't bear much weight but Italy's midfield is amongst the strongest in the competition, and that's before verratti has kicked a ball! Locatelli is probably going to be playing for city next season, jorginho gets a lot of stick by people who only look at goals and assists but is top class imo and barella was one of inters best players this season too.
