Here we go Bayern has it nailed on the head once again???
Not sure verlinden was back for all those 5 games though and pretty sure he had a good game against Huddersfield.
However I’m sure I will be enlightened on what I’m missing.
He wasn’t as good as he has been the last few games but nothing to think that his place was in doubt especially from someone just coming back from loan in league one and wasn’t even ripping the league apart!!
You can’t read owd. Try again.
The point that if verlinden is fit is irrelevant and not what I’m referring too if he was that poor there is more than just verlinden that can be selected.
My point is if he was fit I don’t think McLean would warrant being dropped based on 3 performances that were not at his best but not to a point where you place is in question.
In a game that is awash with self-absorbed arseholes, it is an absolute pleasure to watch an interview where every question is treated, considered, and answered with honesty and, above all, humility. It is a study on how to not lose the run of yourself when you have fame and a few quid.
Aside altogether from the myriad fans in England (who don't support Stoke City F.C.) who could learn a lot about humility, family values and common decency from this footage, sadly, there are a bunch of people on this message board who could do likewise.
You are a thoroughly decent bloke, James. Good on you.
