Ronaldo Viera a respectable outside shot for Africa

The only forward player included whom I think he is better than is Robbie Rogers and he was selected in the spirit of LGBTQI+ inclusiveness.

This did come up in the car, along with Rudi. Ultimately it was decided that they'd have to wait until we have enough players for an Island Nations XI.

Here's where any semblance of structure collapses - he's played for England so we decided against it.

Me too but I felt like he's probably not as good as Brolin or even Einarsson at their pomp. Plus he would have been more useful to me if he'd retained Polish nationality.

I always thought Einarsson was gash.

Probably but he did score and was regularly capped. Were it not for injuries he might have been an asset. As our only Icelandic player, he was a bit of a shoe-in in the same way that Dylan Kerr was.

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Fuck that's depressing, you juvenile bastard.


I don't have outstandingly clear memories of old Waltzing. As I recall he very much had the gangliness/clumsiness you'd tend to associate with a really big target man type but was only pretty good in that role, being good in the air rather than fearsome, etc.


Think he had a bit of a cult hero thing going on. Not entirely unlike Somma say, in that sense that when he was a regularish starter, he looked more than a bit gash. You remember certain games for odd reasons because, I dunno, who you went with or where you drank afterwards, and the one where he scored off his arse in the mud at Highbury is one of those for me.

My recollection of PhilM was that he was a bit Carlton Palmer. Willing and promising much, but didn't really have an outstanding attribute

NB I only commissioned Tommy via Twitter to produce a One First Team Appearance XI.

My initial thoughts were:
- Ross Barkley?
- De Vries / Andrews?
- Didn’t we get a keeper on loan who got knacked straight away?

Though all of the above may have been a couple. Couldn’t be sure without checking.

Daniel Cadamarteri. Alan Wright. Neil Edwards (keeper).

I thought Cadamarteri was a good shout but Wiki says he never appeared for us?

Arses: Barkley was 4

Soccerbase says Cadermarteri played once, as a 70th minute sub vs Swindon in the Carling Cup.

It also says we signed him for nowt in the summer and sold him for £50k in October, the only time in his career he moved for a fee (though he "signed" for Leicester rather than "free" so presume there was a fee there).

EDIT: From the same season: Leandre Griffit made 1 appearance for Leeds away to Derby in January 2005.

Alan Wright is in. 14th October 2006; lost 4-0 to Stoke at home; full 90 minutes.

Player.

EDIT: Soccerbase has Neil Edwards' one appearance as 'other' so I suspect that's non-competitive?

yeah, wiki can be a bit hit & miss with sub & cup appearances. i suppose it adds a little bit to the mystique of the leandre griffits of this world, guys who were't much more than a rumor at the club, even at the time.

e.g. tommy knarvik*'s wiki page shows zero appearances but there's strong evidence to the contrary.

If that was his one appearance then an 86th minute sub in a cup game is close to a perfect example of the genre :cheers:

A great result, too. My recollection is that we looked like chucking this one away until TK stepped into the breach.
