  1. @elhombrecito no comment
  2. That was either my first game or the first game or any game I have any memory of. My father is adamant I went before that, but I have no recollection whatsoever
  3. A player needs to be on board with the changes for a start. I mean of course they can, see here. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/feb/08/return-of-adel-taarabt-reinvented-himself-at-benfica-qpr But remember, Just to get to first team football is bloody difficult. You have to have absolute belief in your own attritubes as a player. Even scouting at a young age, they are looking for what makes you special, As players move up the youth and professional ladder, their own motion that these are my strengths gets reinforced (in palmer's case, those strengths led to a valuation into the millions) When you also consider that sometimes the player doesn't need to change at all, sometimes he just needs to be used correctly. That may well be Simply finding a position on the pitch, or having the right players around him. (even pirlo needed people to make the right runs) Even taking just those two factors into consideration, why would a player simply say, ok I'll change, if he disagrees or sees himself play worse as a result? This is were you find a connection to business, its only successful if everyone is pulling in the same direction, understands what you are doing, why you are doing it, and sees positive results from it.
  4. The boos he recieved after scoring were something else. It was high level hatred for sure. As a 9 year old at the time, I'm not even sure if my memory is correct, but I remember him instinctively running to the corner to celebrate expecting adulation, and receiving nothing but abuse back. A remarkable moment for how unusual something like that is.
  5. I was always of the impression that it was near impossible to mess up a home shirt...... Until now. As someone who can be a bit "out there" with what I wear on a football pitch, really didn't think I'd ever dislike any shirt. It's pretty much the first city shirt that has made me cringe.
  6. One way or another, this will be a fun thread to revisit come May
  7. Federer and nadal needed each other. United and arsenal 98 to 03 needed Ronaldo and Messi needed each other The point: you only need each other if you make each other better: case rested.
  8. Sterling is a great example of a player that was a bag of nerves in front of goal. Very much the "would be great if could finish" type. Definately not one you could say was an instinctive scorer. Now he's a machine. True some players just know where the goal is, but of course you can teach it. With repetition repetition repetion of the right kind of practice, eventually it becomes instinctive.
  9. Taunton v Diss Town: my first game at Wembley. Nottingham forest v Liverpool: first Prem game. West brom V Sheffield Weds (the G. Johnson promotion year from league 1 I was struck by the pace of that game, thought we'd never cope up there) Shrewsbury v that lot (in the Shrewsbury end at Wembley) Real Madrid v malaga Real Madrid v copenhegan Atlético Madrid v Valencia Atlético v Barcelona (epic) Atlético v Bayern Munich (epic everything) Atlético v real (Ronaldo hat trick) Atlético v qarabag Malaga v Granada Recritivo v cadiz (the worst game I have ever seen in my life, yet the home ultras were amazing) Mallorca v Girona There may be others, but they don't stick in the memory.
  10. If my youthful memory serves Diss equalised in the 100000000th minute of injury time. I was 9 and it was my first trip to Wembley.
  11. I appreciate context is everything But imagine after scoring 5 at home, logging on after work, and this was the first comment you saw.
  12. Nobody has to respect any opinion, just their right to have it. These two things always get so confused. By respecting it, you give it validity. It's perfectly possibly to allow soneone to speak (the right to an opinion) then simply tell them they are wrong
