Rumour - the return of Pele

by Stranded » 16 Sep 2020 10:57

Apparently we have approached Monaco to try and get Pele back in on loan for another season.

All kicking off today, and all it took was fielding a shite team in the League Cup.

Liked him a lot, but starting to get confused a little

If we have a holding M/F player then presumably we can't play
our two box-to-box guys.

That M/F showed a lot of promise. To my uneducated eye a holding midfielder
is relatively more fixed. (Unless a Pele could go on surging runs?)

It's like other places in R&G we look like we could get two wingers in but
who gets dropped to play them?

All about options isn't it. Paunovic is on record as saying "we don't need to worry about formations" so would suggest he is happy to switch the formation based on the opposition etc - or just to confuse them i.e. how do you plan to counter Reading if you can't be 100% sure how they will line up.

Stumbling block could be that Monaco want £5m for him.

It's been the "go to" reply for various transfer rumours on this board, so I guess that's why Pepe said it, not because it was in actuality the cost of the loan!

Is it just me, or did you think we ad clicked" with the players and formation we had? Bring in a winger, by all means, or a defensive mid, but I'd hate to see us trying to mash them in, just because.

Did well last year.

Just don’t particularly like him after his embarrassing first half performance against Wigan at home. Nobody played well that day - but he was especially shite. Think he got hooked at half time for Charlie Adam

I swear this is true.

Newport County (when they were working their way back from non-league)
signed two midfielders midweek and it was their debut at home, Saturday

Can't remember the error but they both screwed up
in the first thirty seconds of the game


Within seconds the fans were screaming for them to both GO!
and singing to the manager, "You don't know what yer doing."


We won the game, won the league, but of course they are/were shit, right?
