One of them compared him to Peter Grant with all of the pointing and moaning, just without the movement.
Its the last line that gets you though!Post on Kerryfail Street about him-
“He was appalling today before that tackle.
His awareness of what is going on around him is shockingly bad.
He seems scared to turn on the ball and only plays in the direction it came from.
A couple of those ridiculous passes to nowhere and then headed the ball to their striker, again because that was the way he was facing.
Another bizarre performance.
Still better than Soro.”
Already a few times this season you find yourself saying if they haven't killed the game by the 60th minute you fancy the opposition to get something. And you are usually correct.They play full pelt for the 25/30 mins but start to go down hill quite quickly. By the 60th minute quite a few of them look done.
This is pretty much how our game against them went. Contain and control in the first half while looking to break. Second half step it up and squeeze them till they give up the goal then contain and control until the end (bar about 5 ish minutes).They play full pelt for the 25/30 mins but start to go down hill quite quickly. By the 60th minute quite a few of them look done.
Darren Bent was busy?No shit Sherlock, he's done and the fact he's on a multi year multi million pound deal is glorious.
However Wtf is Football insider? And why does Phillips get trotted out regularly as if he has any knowledge on Scottish football? Seen quite a few threads with him that are moon howling scribbling guesswork about our club, players, transfers
I do like a thread where the Tim's come out looking like clowns. But is his injury record as bad as it's made out? I looked at his stats when he signed and iirc he played about 25-30 times last year, which was about consistent for previous years.
Bet they wish it was 4 month deal.ANGE POSTECOGLOU must be careful with his training demands of James McCarthy, according to Kevin Phillips.
The former England international has warned the Hoops boss McCarthy won't be able to last at the weekends if he faces too much physical work during the week.
The claims come after McCarthy suffered a knock in the 1-1 draw with Dundee United at the weekend.
Last week a report from The Athletic also claimed McCarthy was struggling with the pace and intensity of Celtic training.
Now Phillips has urged Postecoglou to keep McCarthy fresh for the weekends by monitoring his fitness during the week in training.
Phillips told Football Insider: “McCarthy is not a young player anymore and when you sign a player like that you have to manage him right. You have to do your due diligence with the sport science guys.
“If you want the best out of him on a weekend you cannot physically flog him during the week. You don’t want to tire him out otherwise he won’t be able to last long at the weekend.
“I’m a little surprised they gave him a four-year deal.
“They need to manage him now. It will be interesting to see how many minutes he plays this season.”
He's probably looked at the pundit class up here and concluded the barrier to entry is low enough for him to be in with a shout of a regular gig. Imagine competing with the likes of Neville and Carragher vs. Stewart and Hartson.I was just about to ask why is he all of a sudden interested in Scottish football haha? He seems to have an opinion on everything these days.
15!Playing regular men's football aged 16. Was always going to take its toll at the end of his career. Similar happened to Rooney
But you could say the same for James McArthur (16 on his debut), and he’s still going strong with Palace, and about to turn 34.
I think McCarthy has just been a bit unlucky with injuries, including losing a year to a leg break. On the other hand, he does seem to pick up a hamstring injury nearly every year.
James McArthur wouldn't sign for Selik.I was a bit nervous when I read about Celtic signing him. I thought he's a good, solid midfielder and this is a strong signing for Celtic. But then I re-read the headline again, chuckled and carried on with my day when I realised it was James McCarthy and not James MacArthur they were talking about!
