Latas needs to watch how Bruce (of Sunderland) operates and learn from an experienced head coach how to motivate your players to perform better once you decide to start them!

Latas have Bent as an option?

How many goals Frazier Campbell score for Sunderland?

Palos u studyin da fella an he shit talk?! ???

Jones scored again, making it three goals in two games for the Jamaican international, as Sunderland nearly pulled of the victory in Manchester, but settled for a 2-2 draw with United.  .. MORE

Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

We should always have a creative midfielder on the field, unless we're playing some really strong team and need to play more conservatively.

What if the opposition decides to mark that "creative midfielder" out the game?  What then?

I also wonder who this "creative midfielder" would be?  Hardest?  Guerra?  Dwarika?  Daniel?  Who?

Just curious.

I saying a good while i feel Keon Daniel will be a very good creative midfielder in the center for us. Why? He can play better through balls than almost all our players and can generally pass better, and has plenty skills which allows him to create space and pass. I feel he will excell playing a role simular to Riquelme(a creative midfielder who relies on his skills to create space make up for his lack of speed), though I'm obviously not comparing their playing skills, but he's young and his game can develop if he's guided correctly.

It's also a position where he wouldn't have to run as much as when playing winger, as running is obviously not his specialty- he looks like he's running in vat of molasses. I still find he doesn't look anywhere close to optimal fitness, if  he does some proper weight training and gets fitter overall, his energy levels on the field will greatly increase.

Sorry guys, I haven't had time to post anything all weekend as I was busy with other important things.

As usual Palos is playing devil's advocate again.

Anyway to clarify my point, I'm referring to how Bruce motivates his players into performing better by making it clear that their starting position (if they regularly start) is not be taken for granted. I'm saying that Latas can learn something from Bruce there.
I was not looking at the quality of striker options available and anyway with a club team you can buy new/better options if you need them unlike as you can do with a national team.

At any rate its too late to leave out KJ now as he has already answered the call-up and has made the long trip to the Caribbean for these last two remaining Hex games, well last one now as we lost 4-0 to CR and itís by an even bigger margin than I would have predicted.

If I was KJ I would have followed JS's example and save face while also giving another youngster a chance knowing what our team is like and my strengths and weaknesses as a striker.

So no goals yet from KJ and to be honest I was hoping that the man would have surprised me and still come up with something but we still have Mexico to play at home so itís not too late yet for him to register something in this Hex.
If KJ score on Wednesday in that totally meaningless game then expect him to make at least 3 back flip as it will be like him getting a massive jinkís off his back!!

Btw I didn't see the game as I was playing out at a Dinner & Dance! Has anyone recorded and uploaded the game?
