Transfer question

Recommended Posts

Some say you need a special “mindset” to play for a big club.

You have to be able to accept to be dropped for the next game even if you play brilliantly. When you are called upon again you need to perform.

There is no room for finding your form in four or five matches’ time.

You have to find your form on the training ground and be able to do a good job when you are on the team sheet.

 

When we sign players we do medical tests to find out if something is wrong. But are players subjected to personality tests before we sign them?

If not, why not?

Almost for any other job your personality is tested and analyzed, but I have not heard of any footballer taking a personality test.

tbh i think its a myth that players get 'rested' a lot.the shitter ones get 'dropped' more & and the good ones play the majority of games...(i'm finding it hard resisting the urge to contradict myself by criticizing RB)........carra,gerrard,torres,masher for example

 

its well known that shanks,paisley,bacon grid etc only buy/bought players with agressive/tough attitudes so i'm sure most clubs do it.

 

its the 'ability tests' that worry the arse of me though.our scouting and final decision is fooking awful

That should have been brought in for Collymore as we all found out after that that he was as mad as a bag of spiders.

 

To be honest if that's the case then there's a whole load of players who would never have made it, Gazza being the obvious one. With Genius comes insanity and all that.

 

I'm sure if we denied players based on their personality then we would have probably denied some of the best players ever to have played for this club. Look at Souness with the Galatasaray flag incident. He's obviously touched and probably always has been. But it made him the player he was.

 

I think it's a no go IMO.

Dunno if they do personality tests, but Rafa has spoken about not signing players before because they showed the wrong mentality when they met (Mancini from Roma was believed to be one of these)

It would probably rule half of any clubs' signings. These aren't normal people, they've been treated as special from about 8 years of age.
