|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
Something very dodgy at that Brescia club though remember they are a small tinpot club and we gave them a few mill for Savio (not the reported £9m BS duckers came out with) but still must have had 3-4 m off us where did that go? Surely they can afford to pay £1.8m FFS unless Nani and his father in law ran off with the Savio money?
Watching Diamanti today made me realise why we don't miss him, as soon as he gets on the pitch he takes a wild shot from a silly angle and distance (alright, at least he hit the target for onces), then gives away a silly foul or two, and he has a silly haircut.
Diamanti should get into American football. Then he can be the one that does nothing other than come on and kick the ball miles over the bar from range.
Exactly what he did at us in other words.
Yes, last night he played more as a trequartista. He has been most of this season.
At least it wasn't as a left or right midfielder, asking to track back, cover the full back and put in tackles on the egde of his own area! rollyeyes
JonG - The Trequartista himself - will be happy.
(Where's he gone, anyway?)
It matters because your next best alternative from the penalty spot probably wouldn't have much of a different record from Diamanti. He missed one and should have had the Liverpool one chalked off as well.
In a very very very boring season he brought a bit of fun, and occasionally a bit of flair and excitement to the team. I particularly remember him shooting from near the halfway line against Hull and going pretty close, and thinking 'well this is more intersting than sitting here watching Kovac and Boa Morte miss-control the ball to one another to a chorus of groans (or thoughts to that effect, anyway. I probably just went '**** me, did you see that!' .
Players who 'do a job' are all very well, but somtimes it's nice to be entertained. I think a lot of posters are being a little unfair abaout his shooting as well. He was certainly no Obinna when it came to hitting the top tier. At least he had a go, and often created the shooting opportunities for himself anyway.
I therfore thought it was a real shame that he was sold off so quickly after just one season. Who's to say how good he could have been with a season under his belt.
I liked him (in case that wan't clear).
