When he's on his game he's unplayable, very clever player. Shame he has off days where just nothing goes right for him. I guess there will be NFL players that are kind off all or nothing, very little middle ground in his performances.

Just noticed that we haven't won an away game this entire calender year. The last time we won away was 14 games ago and that was a fluke win.

He isn't fast but you are right in that he is nimble.His best qualities are his passing and reading of the game. Pretty much everything good in our attacking play goes through him. In fact he already has a couple of assists this season.

Vid is a bit long but you'll pick up on style of play pretty soon. Asiist and goal sections of the vid are after the general play.

Physically our playmaker is totally different to him, he's a slight 5 ft 6 guy who for the most part sits in the space between the strikers and midfield. He wasn't really able to play under the last manager because sadly the amount of formations a player like him can play in is very limited. New manager likes him enough to play formations fitting him though thankfully.

Can't wait for the game later on. Last time we played at their ground we beat them 5 - 1, don't think it'll be any way near that comfortable today.

Yeah, it's natural that players go to places where there talent can be nurtured though. A lot of African leagues are what would be classed as amateur here, football isn't their job. In the end though it's usually good for the local communities of those that lose talent, players often send money home and help out their communities.

All of the stuff in my recent posts aside one of the best playmakers in the world right now is African. He is a bit of a tank as well though so not a typical pm.

Nah, there are loads of good black players around the top leagues. Most top sides have at least a couple of native Africans and there are often a handful of players with that heritage. We have about 11 or 12 black guys in our squad, most of those were born in England though.

African football leagues are usually very weak, anybody with the potential to go on to bigger things get scouted as kids.

Akinfenwa certainly doesn't look like he plays this sort of football.

Central defense and center forward for tall and strong. If the player isn't so tall he will often be on a wing. Speed is obviously useful everywhere.

Positions would actually the wrong term though, I should have used roles. All positions have roles where good physical attributes are an advantage. You very rarely get top class black creative midfielders, especially ones that sit deep and ping the ball around. Also black goalkeepers are fairly rare in top class European football.

Thought that might be the case. I've noticed something similar in our football actually. As kids black guys often have a physical edge so they are used in positions where they can make the most out of it.

Is it just me imagining things are are there quite a few more white quarterbacks than there are any other race? Historically speaking I can imagine that was certainly the case in the past but now I would think it is far more inclusive.

Just had classes today.

He missed his rookie season so he never started in the NFL
Btw, what day does your semester start?

More based Williams
Sad that he got released.

There was that announcement the other week. A new arc called 'new era' and a film which is most probably an epilogue to the series/link to the new era. I wouldn't be surprised if this new era was a spin off with either kids of the current group or super space naruto ball z featuring the enemy that Rabbit goddess wants to maybe fight.

He'll certainly be back, that's the reason he was a super taken alive and turned into a zombie.

I liked the throwback to the first time Kakashi met his team. It was cheese though, but I don't mind that.

Mayuri can do anything.

That's something I can get

I think Ritsubutt is actually encouraged. If it isn't then it should be,

The fact that the account seemed to have an agenda against Norwich was the initial thing that sets off alarm bells, he seems to want to create disharmony around the club. He also says he has links to other clubs but doesn't link to any of them. Somebody then went and found the original image of one where he was supposedly outside of QPR's stadium with a player, he photoshopped Fer's car into it and lowered the quality to make it look genuine. Of course that was a bit odd as well because you'd think a football agent would own a decent smart phone.

It hasn't been confirmed but I don't believe it.

KeiranShikari | 08-19-14, 6:46 PM
That's true. It's good to get one over on a rival club though.

Looks like that Twitter thing was an elaborate ruse. Photoshopped images and the tweets seem to be guesswork. Of course that much guesswork would be impressive but apparently they just deleted all of the ones that didn't happen. Oh well, well played random Ipswich fan.

Unless you had a specific loyalty or real desire to play for a certain team it's perfectly understandable. You'd move to a different company if they offered you more money to do exactly the same job, no reason why footballers should be hated for it as long as they put in effort once they sign.

Although it's a little hard to respect good players that don't try to challenge themselves. Many players have gone out to oil nations or russia to play in crappy leagues for loads of money.

Another slightly scummy move of ours has been to wait until a player has all but signed his contract with another club and then swoop in at the last second and offer the player a better deal. Do that near the end of the transfer window so there isn't time for a bidding war and then you're saving a fair chunk of money. You're also likely taking a player from a rival team leaving them not much time to get a replacement.

If it was a club employee he would be fired. If it was agents, well, they always do shitty stuff. I don't know if there are agents our board refuse to deal with but it wouldn't surprise me.

The whole info manipulation scene in football is pretty complex, I'm pretty sure clubs release false information in a way to stir up interest in their players and other things. One of those times seemingly happened recently here, QPR were bidding for one of our players but we were holding out for a couple of extra million, our manager then announced that he would be in the squad for tonight's game. Of course that would mean he might pick up an injury so it forced their hand.
