Kevin Mirallas

Recommended Posts

No getting away that et'o was impressive. You skim over issues just enough to back your claim. What about that et'o was helped with the defenders already being run ragged for 70 minutes before he was introduced, meaning this helped the bloke. I'll go back to lukaku against America again. Comes on in extra time and runs the defense everywhere and scores instantly. Got anymore haf?

FFS, stop making sense! I need a shower after agreeing with you so often :P

Eto'o is the better footballer. I.e ball at his feet, back to goal, combination football, sees the best pass. Etc etc.

 

I'd imagine Eto'o probably has max 70mins in him when he's fully fit. Similar to Pienaar. But he definitely looks a better option to Lukaku ATM.

 

However It's hard to compare them. Totally different players.

 

I too agree with Haf Eto'o and Mirallas seem to bounce of each other.

Yeah I see the similarities.... Lukaku came on when the U.S defenders Had chased origi and co around for 94 mins in 80 degree temperature at stifling humidity.

 

On the other hand Eto came on after 70 minutes in comfortable 55 degree low humidity.

 

Listen I'm not arsed!!! Have we signed a £28m Dirk kuyt - there to exhaust defenders so we can bring a 33 year old on to do the technical stuff? Or have we paid £28m to see a young lad become a great player?

 

I say the latter, he has clear shortcomings so please quit this bollocks in suggesting he has every opposition player hanging on to his shorts allowing the others to do what they want in games where he offers very little.

 

We've made a huge outlay on him, I have seen moments of quality and I have seen moments of "how are you a professional footballer with a rotten touch like that". At this moment it just does not add up. I get the feeling he is going to be an enigmatic player as having a touch, pass, move game just is not in his DNA. He scores goals and has explosive moments of brilliance.... I want more from his all round game, frankly it's shite and needs to get much better.

Spot on

 

I don't know how many times you need to state the obvious with Lukaku until other fans understand. It states me in the face every time I watch him play it's glaringly obvious to me he's so far away from being where we need him to be.

 

Love that effort to justify a shite performance... Wore the opposition down... Hmmm.

 

Lukaku is easy to play against end of story.

I'm not saying anymore on the topic. We'll wait till end of the season and pass judgment then.

I just want to see balanced reviews of the lad. I gave him credit for his tremendous West Bromwich goal and will for anything he does well. I just don't understand the unconditional support he receives.

 

The biggest asset we have is Eto, before we signed him Lukaku was undisputed top dog up front. Eto should light a fire under his arse, he will hopefully make Romelu see that he has some way to go before he can even be Johnny big bollocks. Origi did this in the world cup and Rom was furious. Rom can't be furious now, Hes got a true world class operator showing him how it's done.

 

Learn Rom, learn. I think he will, but till then I'm not goingto get carried away, it's not gonna happen overnight. So yeah, let's see at end of season.

Give Et'o 90 minutes then you can relieve yourself all over the lad when he performs then

He plays in his pipe and slippers, you expecting him to say to Martinez "take me off boss, despite the fact I don't need to run round like a headless chicken I can't be arsed"

If Deulofeu was out for 8-10 weeks with a light tear, this one is going to be a longer. I too don't think we'll see him until next year. Depending on the severity will be how strong he comes back. Players careers have been ruined by hamstring Injurys. (Owen)

Martinez said it 'looks really bad'. He usually underplays them so I'd go with him being out til around February myself.

If Bobby says it looks really bad I'm worried. As you say he usually plays it down. Kevs one player we can't do without for a stretch.

Big pressure on Atsu to step up and for McGeady to live up to his potential. I don't want to put Osman or Naismith out wide, and we need Pienaar to get fit. I know it's not his best position, but Ross isn't awful out on the right wing.

Wingers now appear to be McGeady, Atsu, Pienaar, Oviedo, last 2 after upcoming international break.

 

Surely RM sees that Naismith's best spot is CM, so won't slot him out wide. Osman out there only in absolute desperation.

 

Long absence of Mirallas might incline RM to keep Lukaku out on right, but I wonder whether that experiment has run its course. Don't we need Lukaku up top?

Not hisbest position though mate and maybe when he was younger more effectively.

Played there a lot for Barca and Inter. Yes many years ago but still a better option than Atsu &Mcgeady for me. We've got to fill these holes with quality.

 

"Mourinho convinced me to play on the wing saying that we would win the Champions League.

 

"Last year, before the match against Chelsea, he asked me to play on the left wing and to convince me he said that in putting me there we would win the Champions League.

 

"Before the trip to London, we lost to Catania and he took me to one side and said that I had played only in my own image.

 

"The day after, Mou came to me and proposed that I play as a left winger against Chelsea 'because we would win the Champions League that way'.

 

"I marked Messi against Barcelona, but we won everything. Now I am happy to play centre-forward," he concluded.

Your hamstring is part of your thigh. So..... How is anybody getting this "wrong"?

 

The thigh is the front and the hamstring the back of your leg though? You don't pull your hamstring if you pull a thigh muscle, or vice versa, do you?

 

I'm not clued up on this shit though so I'm probably way off base!

Marco's right. Your quadriceps are in the front, while your hamstrings are in the back. Quads are the anterior thigh, while the hamstrings are posterior. All thigh though.
