Somebody must have known about him - we started negotiations a few weeks ago.


I guy on Twitter, @19YNWA, said we’d scouted him and he’d been recommended to the committee on 31st July. 

 

He’s a bit of a pain though, he doesn’t clearly post stuff. He gives hints and clues because, he says, doesn’t want to give his sources or whatever away.

He was right on Robertson and maybe a couple of others as well. He’s of the opinion we do want Thiago.

With all due respect to that guy our scouting and vetting process has clearly been in depth for the fellas we have signed recently. My guess is he has been on the club's radar for quite some time.

I meant us, here, and the general fanbase. There wasn't any intention or implication that Michael Edwards was included in that.

Oh - agree. I still have never heard of him.

I’m glad we’ve bought cover for Robbo but seeing as I’d only ever heard of him last week, I have no opinion of him.

 

Lets just hope he’s better than Kyriakos.

 

In fact has there ever been a decent Greek  defender in the Premiership? Or a decent Greek player?

They won the euros in 2004 left "CR7" in tears if I remember rightly.

I'm sure I heard somewhere that football scouts use the database employed by football manager. If this is even remotely true, having literally an entire list of players available means they can send scouts to watch any players they can. The scouting network clubs use I can imagine is scarily massive and there must be so much competitive secrecy between networks.

People need to turn down their expectations here from 'this lad is dynamite and will be world class', to 'Andrew Robertson is actually world class, and this lad looks handy to learn from Robbo and give him a couple of breathers a season'.

 

Ta.

Does he speak English ?  And even if he does, will he be able to understand Robbo ?

Hopefully some of Robbo's snide rubs off on him.  You need a bit of that.

He has a bit of snide judging him on that one game marking Traore, never gave him an inch and always at him.

Really like the look of this signing. A talented young player with experience at a good European club. 

 

Exactly what you want your back up lb to be. Hopefully he gets a bit of experience and is ready if he has to step in for Robbo for a spell.

Probably better than what we have out there - until he is not. Then I reserve the right to come back and edit this post to say he was/is shite.

 

Or is/was.

Now we are improving on our left back department, maybe we can start looking for a deputy to Howie?

    • Does feel like the wheels have come off. The levels of the players and the performances have definitely been circling the drain for a while now but we've managed to keep going through sheer force of will and momentum. Now it looks like that momentum has dried up and we're just left with a tired and somewhat stale squad. It's a shame because I can't help but feel pissed off with the whole situation but these lovely cunts have given me three years of success, effort, desire and outstanding football so channeling my frustration and anger in their direction feels a bit unfair. But then again what else is there to do?   In the early days of Klopp I used to content myself with quite happily seeing a positive team that enjoyed its football and won more often than not, and to a certain extent that's all I'm arsed about: if you're watching a team like that week in week out then you're luckier than the majority of football fans and there's something to build on.   And that's the central problem at the heart of things at the moment (although I do think we'll not look quite so shagged if the form picks up even slightly): the players just don't look like they're enjoying their football. Whether it's to do with the lack of fans (we're definitely a team and manager with a high EQ) or just that they're a bit jaded - either because they've gone 'soft' through success or it's just accumulated fatigue of back to back 90+ point seasons and CL finals - I don't know, but I fear we need two things to truly reach our best level again: the fans back in the stadium, and some relatively significant turnover in the squad (beyond the usual "x or y isn't good enough" - not saying they are, rather I just think we more need some fresh faces with new motivations to rub off on those around them). In short, we need to revolve, not evolve, and we need another Chris Evans on our hands.   Just to add as well. As usual: the referee was fucking shite (how the fuck Alisson following through slightly on Barnes post-touch is a clear penalty but Mee wiping out Mane post-touch isn't is fucking beyond me, and he might as well have kicked off twenty minutes late for all the time he gave Pope for goal kicks), and we just aren't getting the luck (rival deflections are falling kindly for them whilst that Trent cross-shot that Firmino hit at a defender sums up our last month). Not that these excuse the performance, which was rank, but it's yet more obstacles being placed in front of us to overcome.   Hopefully the latter can turn a bit soon and we can go on a bit of a run, get top 4 (the title is gone, I've come to peace with it) and see some surgery in the summer. And I can't be arsed arguing about whether it'll happen or not.
    • Absolutely inevitable that between now and end of season Fabinho and Matip will be injured at same time.   Which plus all the other reasons already well documented like Phillips being championship at best level, Williams being at fucking Kidderminster last season etc etc - makes us doing fuck all about it all the more baffling and damaging to any hopes we have/had this season.
    • I'm sorry I didn't mean to name call.   My gates always open for you baby.
    • Thiago is pretty darn good defensively - nicks in there early and is in top 5 in interceptions. Was in a top pressing side, don't think he has anything to do with it tbh.
