and i bet everyone that's said he's no good has never seen him play. amazing how many armchair draft experts there are on bigfooty.
he's a gun and easily the best KPP in this years crop. the whole under performing thing has spiralled out of control. according to some he had a "very poor" game when he had 20 touches, 7 grabs (4 contested) and kicked 2 goals.. I fail to see how that's a poor game (especially for a 17 year old key forward with bucketloads of upside).. i just hope for his sake that he has a blinder on wednesday to get the public off his back.
As far as ive heard Matthew Bates from Boro on a free transfer is close to being done. Good backup I think. We are about to make a bid for yep, Rod Fanni. Right back who was excellent this year in Ligue 1. Would cost 3-5 mill id think. Other than that we are signing a striker from Serie A but dont know who yet. Maybe Balotelli again I think
I enjoyed the game mate, very free flowing and your players stood up very well - it was a good game to watch only made not great by skill errors on both sides.
You have a quality side that just needs to learn how to win, maybe a key forward or two, Jack Watts should hopefully turn that around, you'll be surprised how quickly the wheel does turn - no s**t, I think finals next year is not out of the question. Great developing backline.
I thought the Dees were bloody good today. You guys are far from the worst side in the comp and although it might seem like the best thing for the future, don't tank for draft picks. If you can get 5-6 wins this year, it will have such a positive effect on your current players and they'll lift to cover anyone you would have got with pick 2.
And Colin Sylvia (I do like his first name), was fantastic today mate. Showed a bit of Hodgey about him which he's been meaning to show for a while. Hope this is his breakout game for you.
