Does Anton Ferdinand ever limp off/bottle it* when we're winning?
(*delete as applicable)
Should have been away in the summer
He was holding his hamstring & looked to be feeling it after the 'strong' shoulder-barge on Scharner. Could have closed down quicker for their 2nd & 3rd IMO. Injury may have played it's part, whether he would fain injury, idk?
I do think he has the potential to be pretty good but has never realised that potential fully. Has pace, strength, athletic, tall, but always looks too laid back / running at 60%.
My view anarl. It's beneath him to look hurried.
Why, he put in his best performances for us over the first half of the season and then started picking up knocks and having to play with injuries.
MOTM several times this season.
He can't get a run of games though, too injury prone. He's a decent player but I'm beginning to feel we should move him on.
I don't , Anton had a run in with the manager and proved it on the pitch, it's not his fault we don't have the back up we should but then when you look at the squad we had then i can't blame Brucey for shipping them out.
We always knew we had to get through this one to progress and Anton is a decent player and a great squad player.
Hewas never going to be Rio but then again he's not McShane.
I'm not questioning his ability, nor his value to us at present, more the fact that I can't see him developing on as he's continually hampered by niggly injuries.
Has anyone ever seen him sprint? You know, like when the opposition are breaking quickly?
And that's before we even get into concentration/injuries. I used to think there was a footballer in there, but I'm sick of making excuses for the lad - he just hasn't got it.
Do you think anybody are going to pay the wages we are giving him
Fuck off to bed you miserable bastard,you're making steve and stubber look positive.
As I say, seems too laid back, 'Kenwyne Jones Syndrome', & as you say, conc'n has been an issue. Been a LONG time since I thought I saw him sprint It's there, but as you say, having to make excuses for him many-a-time.
Not in England. Maybe somewhere Italy where he would be suited to that type of football.
There is nobody daft enough in the world to pay him the wages we are paying him
I dont think he can sprint because if he does he'll topple over face first
Out of interest, how much are we paying him? I imagine it's in the bracket of £25,000 to 40,000.
Maybe he's huffed at being dropped for Mensah, 10 minutes later the usual happens and Mensah is off and he's on, it would piss me off tbh considering the way Mensah has been playing.
He looked fine in tup tup in Newcastle on saturday night
a stone overweight..totally different bodyshape to his quicker more succesful brother
