Always buy N'Diaye on FM17, box-to-box midfielder. ITK.

Managers that ask you to do stuff that they can't
Extend that to 'too lazy to do themselves' then that accounts for 99.9% of managers.
It's been said that the greatest managers are not people who desire to become a manager, but people who feel they need to be one because no one else is good enough. I think it's one of the truest words spoken about managers, especially middle management.

:lol:

What sort of player is he? DM?

Rumour re Ndiaye (26), to us or West Ham. He plays attacking (mainly),  defensive (25% of time) and centre mid (occasionally) for Osmanlispor.  Whoscored.com list his strengths as dribbling and tackling, scored 7 goals, plus few assists. Rated 12 best (all positions) in Turkish league on their stats system (7.2/10 average rating); which if it means anything is probably better than it sounds given he plays for a poor side. Seems an all rounder, but hardly a signing (if it happens) that will get pulses racing.

Jack Wilshire isn't the kind of signing I would want here given his fitness and attitude. But if it was the end of Colback forever, I could totally live with it.

They play completely different roles, especially in a hypothetical system of Rafa's.

When we buy a pure and proven defensive midfielder it'll be the end of Colback, and obviously it can't come soon enough. Not because I like the role fwiw, in fact it's a bit of a pet hate. But Rafa will always play one or two of them in his midfield.

Some of these job match search engines are absolutely dire.  I'm developer and got matched with a f***ing legal job.
One of my mates did a History postgraduate degree and the first job he got matched with after graduating on a job site was the Brentford reserves physio vacancy

I feel like I'm fairly loyal and go to quite a few games, and have done for years, but I still have almost no loyalty points. I don't have a fairer system like, but I do find it a pain that it's impossible to buy tickets.

If you don't have a season ticket you'll have 0 loyalty points, no? Or do you keep them as a member? Know mine all got obliterated when I sacked it in for a season.

Haven't a clue how it works, sure I had some at some point in the past but might well be zero now.

Plane travel with my family has been hellish. We have been doing quite a bit of it recently, and my two year old son is seemingly on a God-given mission to break/throw random objects, accost random members of the local citizenry, and generally be disruptive. The close quarters of the plane only exacerbate these issues. The twenty-five year old woman who birthed him has also been a liability on these trips, who has been too busy with sleeping for the entirety of the flight to deal with the madness taking place directly next to her.

Generally, I quite enjoy flying, but the two of them have greatly increased my stress levels. :lol:

That's been a stock response for you for a while in here, now. Nice it's finally been afforded to me. Though unfortunately it really, really doesn't make any sense this time.
