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 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.

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.

Gestede isn't going anywhere fast on 45k a week. Millwall offered him 15k in the summer and he turned them down flat.

He's costing us a bloody fortune.

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.

    • Still depends on what you're looking for. I'd say some of the bigger ones include: World of Warcraft Guild Wars 2 The Elder Scrolls Online Final Fantasy XIV EVE Online Runescape Black Desert Online. There's a new one coming in early 2021 that looks quite interesting called New World.  
    • i said it last season, the kids will keep improving and be even better as time goes on. thats what we see now. some of the football today was nice and need fast football. players involved were the young lads and bola. they know eachothers game they are pretty familiar and now the confidence is coming for them we are seeing them express themselves. the shackles are coming off and the young lads are starting to show us what they can do. give it a few months if this form keeps up these kids will be flyin and the goals will be flowing. lot more to come from us yet. well done NW you can see they all love him he's like a grandad figure to them never mind a father figure. he'll give them the love and build their confidence and we'll keep seeing the results of that in their performances, UTB.
    • NW says he has been training at Rockcliffe for the last couple of weeks so his knee must be ok now. NW wants to get him so who would argue with his judgement? Not me.
    • I can't believe it was 5 years ago when I posted this.  Are there any good new ones out that people know about?
    • Yeah I thought he had a bit of promise a few years back.  Terrible luck with the injuries, like a few of our lot a while back - McMahon and Bates in particular.
