Re: Rumour - Ruben Semedo

What type of player is he?

He's strong as passing, in the air, tackling and has a decent number of interceptions. His main weakness is he's ill disciplined.

He likes to dribble on the ball, plays a lot of short passes and fouls a lot...

Re: Rumour - Ruben Semedo

Original source is "O Jogo" (the game) - them and "a bola" (the ball) are two of the more reliable sites in Portugal. https://www.ojogo.pt/futebol/1a-liga/maritimo/noticias/interior/ruben-semedo-tem-um-pretendente-em-portugal-e-ainda-jose-gomes-10424509.html? Was sent back from h...

Re: Tiago llori

I thought Gomes made a point of saying he (depressingly) rates Ilori really highly I’m not surprised I think what gets massively over looked is the quality of his passing into the midfield. It will undoubtedly get worse when he leaves. He makes far too many mistakes but he is also starting many of ...

Re: BFTG QPR

Millwall pressed us back and the unforced errors flowed. Fortunately that wasn't the case today. You do remember we were one nil down against Millwall early doors, then spent most of the game with 10 men, the last 10 minutes with 9, and pretty much held our own? I think that probably had a huge fac...

Re: BBC Radio Berks

For a man who knows nothing of the players or league our performances, if not results, have quickly stepped up a notch. I'm including the Millwall clusterfuck in that too.

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

Your actual claim was that Nuno wasn't rated as highly as Gomes, even though there's nothing in his record to suggest Gomes was rated at all. You've managed to both explain and miss my point in the same post. OK. Just out of curiosity, where is you insight into the general feeling toward Nuno and G...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

err... did Gomes even had a reputation in Portugal before this season? I can't imagine the locals would have followed his Middle East career too closely. Having managed 6 clubs in Portugal and been assistant at Porto (among others) I believe the answer would be yes His career as manager in Portugal...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

Nuno managed Porto and Valencia. I'd say that is a bit more impressive than Al Taawoun and Videoton. He was seen as a bit of a joke manager in Portugal weirdly. Not ever rated as highly as the likes of Castro, and not quite on a par with Gomes. Interesting one as it worked here so well. err... did ...

Re: Are we really going down this season

When Clement was here most seemed to think we had a 50 50 chance of staying up. I reckon that with recent results and a manager who will have to adapt to this division we are now 95% to go down. And I used to be called an RTG. This. Clement was our best bet of avoiding relegation. Not ideal but our...

Re: Are we really going down this season

think we're getting closer to reasonable performances turning into results. Won't be cut and dry, but think we'll finish a few places above relegation. Won't be down to the last day again.
