Reduced to 9 games on appeal. The only suspension he has ever had in his entire career, I think..Yes, 12 match ban
The striker was given one of the longest suspensions in history over an incident at a corner that was caught on videowww.theguardian.com
I remember him playing CB against us the other year and I thought he was actually quite good in that game. I suppose that says more about our attack though.Reduced to 9 games on appeal. The only suspension he has ever had in his entire career, I think..
Also, based on the three he was allowed to take in shootouts, the best penalty taker I've seen at Dale - all three hit very hard into the corner of the net. However Ian Henderson was captain, and liked taking penalties, although his strike rate wasn't brilliant with them.
Don't play him at centre half. Gets caught out of position. A very useful man to bring on when you're under the cosh, though - plays well as a spare man at the back, with the "attack the ball and head/hoof it as far upfield as possible" remit.
Guess they turned out to be very goodKieron Lee just about Shef wed best player for the last eight years...Got a hip injury but managed 28 games last season in the championship. A host of clubs in lge 1/2 were after him.
Declan john is a player who to be frank i had never heard of. 20 odd games for Cardiff in the Premier plus a further 30 odd games for Rangers in the Scottish Premier add to that 4 full Wales caps tells me he is decent.
I can only guess (assuming its true of course) the club have made the decision that we were not going to offer Manny a new deal or more likely some sort of pay as you play deal which he was unlikely to accept so figured may as well take the money now with our season done.
IF he could stay injury free he is far too good for this division never mind the Conference.
Yeah free 10k now essentially, just can’t stay fit otherwise a top talent, did 150 minutes last season and what 10-11 games this year.
Aye, problem is the longest run of games we've seen in a long time from him is just now once his contract is up for renewal. I can only guess DC and Flitcroft between them have weighed it up and thought better to move on. Gives us a chance to give Taylor or Burgess a run now or maybe if Monty is fit again can see how Worrall does as part of that midfield three.
I wonder if we could throw in Danny Whitehead to the deal also? Whatever money we have to give them back would be worth it.
This Oyekele that we're signing any good Vale fans?
Sorry, it'd help if I fucking read up before posti g wouldn't it. Hopefully he stops being broken for a bit!If you can get him playing a run of games he wouldn't be just good he would be a great signing. Almost every single attribute you would want in a midfielder he has.
The downside as you may have seen above is you don't see it often as his body is made of glass.
Yea that's wank. We do have a big enough squad to cover injurys right now, so maybe he's hoping he can be an impact player a few times. We've got about a thousand games in the next few weeks so definitely need the legsI guess Clarke/Flitcroft can no longer be arsed with him spending 2/3rds of the season injured.
Shame but it's one of those things.
162 appearances in a 10 year career. Awful record.
Sorry, it'd help if I fucking read up before posti g wouldn't it. Hopefully he stops being broken for a bit!
We need to get out of this shite and back playing the likes of you boys again anyway, so fingers crossed your theory comes true there!Yeah if you can keep him going long enough through to the end of the season and playoffs you will go up and will more than pay back what you've spent. He is that good when he plays. Get used to wincing each time he takes even the slightest of touches though in the hope he can get back up, becomes par for the course with Manny.
