What seems to be an excuse for Henderson - playing out of position - is easily forgotten when we're talking about Raul; and the biggest source of criticism for Raul (tackling) doesn't seem to be too much of a problem with Hendo either.
After all, Hendo is with us and Raul decided to f**k off, so I know who I really care about. I just like reasonable debate and can't agree with the flawed logic applied to these players
Indeed Diego and that "flawed" logic works both ways; doesn't it?
I mean; if we overlook his lack of prowess in the tackling department then surely we can do the same for Henderson or whoever.
Or, alternatively if we praise Raul for leading the midfield in assists last season... then surely we should, at least, afford the same luxury to whoever's leading the team, in that particular area this season; no? Wouldn't that be a reasonable?
I pretty much defended Raul, when he was here, (give or take the odd joke about his tackling) as I seen him as a talented footballer. Much as I do with our current crop of new boys.
We've an old saying where I'm from "I didn't come down in the last shower" - I use it often but usually never more than once to someone who doesn't know me.
I actually think he wasn't by any means a "MOTD player"
Ah... you saw the question mark "A MoTD player?"
... handy fuckers them punctuation marks, ain't they? Thanks for the reply. I happen to agree.
