    Oh, me neither - we represented our school in tournaments and have played in some amateur ones with friends, but nothing more than that!

    Best player I've ever played with at school is now a starting CB in the Dutch second division, so that should tell you something.

    lol
    If you're not sure what to do with the ball, just put it in the net, and we'll talk about the other options later... Bob Paisley.

Must be said that I'm a pretty small and physically weak guy, so I have to have a bigger stronger defender next to me though. Where did you used to / do you play?


    I don't see how me not thinking Jota is particularly quick has anything to do with how creative I am / used to be on a pitch. David Silva's pretty slow but was still one of the most creative players the PL has ever seen. Not to mention all the registas of the near past.


    Edit: My overall view on football is that it should be practiced efficiently and scientifically. Don't particularly like unnecessary showboating or a heavy onus on pure entertainment.
    1. I wouldn't expect you to.

    2. Our views on football are polar opposites. Also playing efficiently isn't the only option out side of unnecessary showboating..

    I used to be an out and out striker - played a lot on both wings too - nowadays play a bit deeper but only because the legs have gone.

    Well of course you're going to be nice and cryptic after making an absurd claim. No way to weasel your way out of making a dick of yourself again otherwise. Is anyone surprised at this point?

    Do you think he's as quick as Salah or Manč?

    Ah, maybe the word "quick" is the sticking point here. I mean in terms of pace, not in terms of speed of thought or ball control or ability to move the ball on quickly. He looks... at least decent at those - too early to judge.

    Nothing cryptic at all Bali - just highlighting your lack of vision and understanding. Goes with the territory of those who favour the scientific approach to the game over creativity.

    If you can't see that Jota has plenty of pace - and need some numbers to reveal it - then I guess it just proves my assessment above.

    Yeah, Steveo, reading is for chumps. It's okay, I'm sure you'll get the hang of it some day.

    I can't find the stats on his acceleration and top speed. FM seems to consider him slower than both Manč and Salah. FIFA too, although that's hardly a good measure.

    Can't help you I'm afraid Bali - just going to have to go out and run along side all 3 of them to find out for yourself..

    Chill out Bali - go have a 4 knuckle shuffle or something. The only person chatting shite - as per usual - is the daft wanna be German Bulgar who thinks he understands English but clearly doesn't get the nuance all the time.
