I hope he's better than F***ing shawky

Does every footballer have to be associated with another player from their country of birth when getting linked with a football team? If we were looking at an English centre mid wouldn’t say I hope he’s better than F***ing Phil Stamp would you?

Good player. He was my choice for holding midfielder all along.

Jesus Block how much footy do you watch? I reckon if I named a left back from the Peruvian 2nd division you'd probably have heard of him and know if he was half decent or not! 😉

I reckon we should sack our recruitment team and have you and @newyddion in charge of scouting. We wouldn't be able to pronounce half the names but we'd have some decent players with potential resale value if they did well. Get that letter wrote to Gibson!

It is all I do in my spare time really mate. Will be interesting to see if I have the same time when baby is born! But yes, a hell of a lot. Would love to be a scout tbh 😂

He was born in England, his dad's Egyptian.
We should hope he's better than Phil Stamp too.

I'd be happy with this as a signing.

It's a strange one isn't it. The press are guilty of it, for example every South Korean footballer linked with a move to the Premier League is always "dubbed the new Son Heung-min"

He is another leader aswell, combative. Remember Yacob for West Brom? Plays a bit like he did.

When they're very young they'll be sleeping so plenty of time for you to watch dodgy streams of Racing Donkeys V Atletico Kickaball in the Albanian 3rd Division. 👍

To be honest I think clubs should give some fans a go as scouts, a surprising number of fans are switched on enough with a good eye for a player. Footy seems to be one of those closed shop industries though, you mostly only get a job if you're an ex-player.

An old mate of mine who I studied sport with at college has got a job as a analyst at Villa, if i stuck it out I would of been interested in that! Never mind!

You couldn't pay me enough to have to watch Villa week in week out! On my list of clubs I have a somewhat irrational dislike of!
