Truly shocking, Rhys. The ignorance of anyone using the term "Baaaardiff."

Don"t these bigots know the city has been totally Anglicised since the time of Llywelyn the Last, with hardly anyone living there these days able to trace pure sheep shagging ancestry?

I'm sure that's just one of your many holiday homes, Rhys.

If only Llywelyn the Last had followed your example and enjoyed constant holidays off the income of his tenants rather than pissing off that nasty Pom Edward I, history might have been different and Wales a less Anglicised place.

Bartley looked solid last night,& settled as Capt in the ducks 8-1 mauling of NC in the cup.
However Snudger now player manager & Dicko the enforcer did not have a good nite.

Smith is player-coach. Their manager is Kevin Nolan. The former came on when it was already 7-1.

What an utterly ridiculously talented footballer. Still can't quite work out why Wilkinson sold him to the scum and helped them found years of success :scratch:

He should have fucked off Lee Chapman instead then. Can't really compare the two as footballers can you?

Missed off that cracker against Chelsea at home. Ball juggling brilliance.

yeah, the video reminds you that he actually got a fair few goals [11 with no penalties, better than a goal every other game, pretty much career best totals] & put in some very good performances in a badly struggling 1992/93 leeds team.

other than Shearer he was as good as any English-based player in his position at the time [something that applied to, at best, three or four of the other squad members] , even in global terms he probably wasn't far off the top ten. only at Leeds...

Oh, I dunno. Accepted wisdom seems to be that he didn't cut it in the CL or his (which was at the time, in fairness, exceptional) national side.

pff, well.

he obviously wasn't nearly as good as zidane & wasn't that exceptional by the standards of the rest of that generation of french players who were mostly c five years younger than him [e.g. djorkaeff was roughly as good & played in the same position with about 0.05% of the ego and hassle]. as we know, they could even afford not to pick david ginola. even from his own generation papin was the bigger star & better player.

nor was he ever up there with the small handful of really [globally] top players of his day, romario, george weah, baggio ,& whoever.

maybe say all of the top countries had something like one or two attacking players who were a little better.

but he was certainly a really huge asset in the 'EPL' at a time when so few clubs had brought in a top foreigner. probably roughly as good a striker as dorigo was a LB/batts was a DMC/macca was a playmaker.

i don't see top ten as a particularly outrageous claim. he must have been there or thereabouts for at least a couple of years in the early-mid 90s.

And what has that got to do with it?

We have had many cunts play for us both before and after him. I don't want to invite him around my Mums for tea, but if he wore white and played well for us , then he gets a pass from me.

He stood out as a maverick but that was largely because English football was pretty much 442 in straight lines.

But compared some of the players who have played here in the last 15-20 years he's nowhere near.

Wasn't going to take the bait from the miserable git, but as you are a maths teacher (so I believe), isn't 1992 more than "15-20" years ago?

Anyway, name the players, in that timescale, who were more naturally talented the The Sardine.
