Watched him for the first time on friday and he looked impressive. An AM who starts as winger and always cuts into the middle. Very difficult to mark.

Didn’t see a thread about the 22 year old Bristol City and Ireland winger. Haven’t seen much of him at Bristol City, but he looked quick and willing against Denmark in Copenhagen. Does O’Dowda have a chance of having a Premier league career? Would it be worth it for United to take a chance on the...

A Deal has been done with Besiktas for Fellaini for 8 million. There is talk of Fred of Shaktar Donetsk coming in. This is like little for large, as he is only 5'6" tall. He is an attacking midfielder which says something.What do you think.
RedCafe.net - Sun Nov 12 12:17 AM
How will he fare in his first season? Instant impact making Liverpool serious contenders for top 3 or does he require serious amount of rebuilding? Squad looks awfully fragile when a couple of key players are out so surely this won't be plain sailing for The Normal One?

I definitely recall an era ie the whole of football history up until maybe this century when players experienced periods of form. Could be good form, could be bad form. But their whole talent worth was not judged solely on a period of poor form. It seems now that fans and even managers cannot tol...
