He makes me forget we have Steve Bruce. I don't think I'd even bother watching games this season if we didn't have him and Schar
Chances are we won’t have either in February.

This thread should just be a 27 page w*** fest. The man is class.

Exactly.

Fans of other clubs raving about how exciting he is, our own fans full of critique with no grounds whatsoever.

Enjoy the good moments when they come. The main reason ASM and Almiron play for us is because they have glaring weaknesses to their game and no better club wanted to take a risk on them. Better clubs from all over Europe will have scouted them out and decided against them. It's not often nowadays that a club unearths a hidden gem, Kante springs to mind.

That said, he's pretty much my new favourite player, along with the Longstaffs for obvious nepotic reasons :)

I don't have a favourite player any more, the enthusiasm has been completely drained from me. But if I did, it would certainly be a player Rafa signed, not one Ashley/who knows signed.

So over the top man. My goodness :lol:
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Sissoko if he was a winger...



Stick to long posts.

Haven’t seen him play in all honesty, just playing cliche bingo in the hope I can quote myself in a few years to say ‘Told You So’

My mate has seen every game this season and he’s usually a good judge of a player and says he’s the kind of dynamic/difference of a player Robert/Bellamy was under Sir Bobby to an average team, only he’s managed by Bruce and we don’t have a Shearer up front. I guess we do have Carroll I suppose..

His footwork reminds me a bit of Cabella. He's just got that pace and strength Cabella lacked.

Bellamy is an interesting comparison.

Bellamy is a good shout. I remember when he first signed he missed some right sitters where he was one one one. He turned out canny though, so hopefully the same happens.

Cannot remember a thing about Cabella. Peak Pardew/Carver malaise, I barely watched any games. What was wrong with him? Weak or just s***?

I’m sure it was around then that he had a blinder down at Stamford Bridge (still lost like).

ASM’s ability to keep hold of the ball and or beat 1-2 players at pace is incredible. Often times you think he may lose it but he keeps it or advances with the ball. He’s the best dribbler we’ve had since Hatem.

In the first half of the first half I thought they'd figured out how to stop him causing problems. But he just always finds a way to create something.

Not worried at all. You worry when they aren't creating or getting chances, he's doing everything else right.

And at least today means they can't start a "No goals or assists" thing for him.

There’s not a single defender who will want to deal with ASM busting a lung up the pitch on a long ball off a set piece defended by Newcastle. This lad is absolutely terrifying defenders. As soon as he gets that goal he’s going to be unreal to defend against.
