Players that we saw too little of


Recommended Posts

 

 

Not going to be particularly popular, but Wijnaldum. Would like to have seen him in a decent Newcastle side.

 

I'd like to have seen him bother his arse for the team he was in

 

What, like Liverpool?

 

Newcastle obviously

 

I thought Wijnaldum started off very well, clearly a very good player, but probably lost enthusiasm as the season wore on under McLaren. Thauvin was also obviously a better player than he showed at the time as well. Like I said, would like to have seen some of these players under a decent manager with a constructive buying policy.

 

He was there for the end of the season under Rafa as well and was so bad that Rafa dropped him for the crucial games

 

I wrote a post that analysed every goal he scored in the 10-goal season, they were all inconsequential and mostly only when we were on TV. He really didn't care at all, and it showed.

 

 

We didn't care as a club about success either, you tend to find the better players start looking elsewhere to find it. I blame us as a club more for our lowering of standards.

Ben Arfa is the one that bugs me the most. Players like him just don't come round very often.

 

Hugo Viana was another player I wish we saw more of. Also thought Marveux had a lot of quality about him but was never given thr chance.

Bugs me whenever I see Nigel De Jong on TV - he robbed us of Ben Arfa in this prime.

I'm going to chip in with Sylvain Marveaux.

 

I really thought there was a player in there, and we just saw too little of him.

 

Don't really think he had the stomach for a battle mind, but there was a talented player in there.

Yeah I agree a bit, but we have so many coaches so incompetant at getting the best out of playres or developing them it's really hard to judge a lot of players from the last 10 years excepting the rafa period

Was it that shitshow game at Reading that The King kept him on the bench for the entirety of the game whilst we got our arses handed to us by relegation fodder?
