    Cant wait for this guy to play!! Reminds me so much of Ben Arfa. Hopefully more hard working.

    RobLeenio,
    He’s done the bare minimum to ward off a shed load of ST cancellations, the very real possibility of the manager walking and the club facing his third relegation. Gawd knows why he’s took out a loan when there must be 10’s of millions sitting in the coffers, from our experience of Mikey it certainly won’t be for our benefit, You see change I just see the same as usual. Had he completely changed when giving Rafa full control that first summer, his behaviour most definitely did but it was done purely for his long term gain and not ours.

    Do Catchy and Richard Keys have the same DNA? ie the full on obsessive hatred of Rafa.

    Catchy alleges Rafa ”can not motivate his players and has no tactical nous”. Strangely no sign of Catchy after beating the champions with a rafa masterpiece. Not big enough a man even then.

    As for Keys, his well documented and twisted love rat lifestyle with his daughter’s best friend while his wife was in hospital with cancer condemns him to forever being regarded as irrelevant pond life.

    Rotonda,
    Keys hates him for whatever reason.

    Been watching the MLS Cup Final between Atlanta vs Portland, tbh Almiron hasn’t impressed much. He’s had a couple of nice touches but not much more than Perez has in a game – nothing spectacular. Tbf Atlanta haven’t passed him the ball much. He has hit a couple of wayward passes and only used his blistering pace once or twice. He’a also a bit theatrical when slightly fouled, hopefully that works in our favour. I think he will take a bit of time to settle in and maybe playing him along the wing until he adjusts to our league might not be a bad idea. On the wing he will have more time on the ball until he eases his way into the robust nature of the english game and is eventually played in his preferred number 10 role.

    Josef Martinez has been impressive in this game though.

    I also have to mention the show and atmosphere the Americans make in the MLS games. Flags waving all over the stadium, cheerleaders, cohesive chanting and clapping, smoke machines, the lot!

    Don’t think Almiron will be too impressed by St James’ and the EPL. The good thing is he won’t be fazed either.

    Jail, I’m not talking about his motives (I agree they remain questionable), I’m only talking about his methods.You’re right to bring up the Champo Summer window, which was the last time Rafa was able to choose his own players.

    You mention his own long-term gain being the most important thing in his mind, I agree. His best route to that is the retention of Rafa and his coaching team. Rafa has made a point, he demands his own players and he’s got them.

    Almiron was selected for the MLS team of the season two years running. That was based over an entire season, not a one off game. Everybody has a bad game now and then. 13 goals and 13 assists showed his consistency over the full term. His pace on the ball matches his pace off the ball – how many players can claim that?
    Nothing frightens defenders more than a player running at them full tilt. He does this consistently.
    With Almiron doing so with his, left foot and Yedders doing it with his right foot, we’ll have some serious pace going forward now.
    This lad will add a completely new dimension to our play and one we’ve been lacking for quite a time. He also has the ability to put in a good cross, as well as taking a mean free kick.
    I for one can’t wait to see him get going. He will take a game or two to realise he won’t get as, much time on the ball as in America, but looks more than capable of adapting. That blistering pace on the ball will leave centre backs floundering in his wake. We might finally see a red card after 160 games! 🙂

    To me he looks like a Ben Arfa, but who knows how to pass the ball 😀
