      I have always been impressed with Muslera whenever I see him play.

      Past couple WC's he's been very good.

      Ziyech has been "linked" with us and I thought he was okay. Looks like a downgrade on Fekir, though. Got himself about the pitch and pressed, but his quality was lacking at times.

      Amine Harit (Schalke) who played left wing for Morocco was also decent. Very raw but looked dangerous with the ball at his feet.

      Yeah, I rather we look into Wilson or Woodburn tbh.

      Bruno Fernandes didn't do much to impress before he got hooked. Not sure he would be good enough for us in AM.

      That Ronaldo is not too bad is he. At his age his physical conditioning is phenomenal and still has lots of pace.

      What has been really interested me about Ronaldo over the last two years is how aware he is of his physical strengths and weaknesses as he has gotten older.
      He knows when to go full tilt, sprint for a ball or to find space, and then, when to hold back and to not make the move. Incredibly smart player.
      He knows how to make his body last a game and when to utilize his energy.
      Saw that a lot today.
      For all I dislike his prior club, you have to massively admire his focus, mental strength and commitment to always be ready to perform at the highest level and on the biggest stage.

      Glad Australia equalised. Karma. That French penalty was never a penalty. How long before football becomes no contact?

      I've been watching the Danish Superliga for several years now and regularly watch Randers games after hearing about this phenomenal keeper. He single handedly helped them to a lofty 13th position in a 14 team League last Season and had the ball not gone through his hands and hit him in the face and then onto the crossbar against Helsingor in the final game of the regular Season they would have finished bottom. It wasn't all doom and gloom though, the 13th position finish helped them to qualify for the relegation play-offs.

      He owns the box and commands his back line with a military style presence. Solid on crosses, a sweeper keeper at times and a phenomenal shot stopper, he also takes all the corners, free kicks and penalties. Such was his prowess he only conceded 52 goals in 32 matches, inclusive of the relegation play-offs.

      My only complaint about him is the fact he is a film director by trade and couldn't even be bothered to make a YouTube video about himself. Especially when you consider he scored 87 goals in 3 Seasons for Randers, 19 of those were penalties and 8 even came from inside his own penalty area!

      While the fee being bandied about is £20 i'd much rather we grab the bull by the horns and cement the deal with a £30 cash offer along with Season Tickets for all his family members. We need to get this done now before Spurs come in and steal the deal. :f_tongueincheek:
