Fraser Forster or The Scottish Football Thread.


Recommended Posts

My god - probably the first thing you have gotten correctly since my arrival here.

 

Yes - i meant road. You will have to pardon my ignorance, especially seeing as you lot down in Newcastle are the apostles of lingual correctness :closedeyes:

 

I'm glad that none of you EPL supporters would come up to watch Scottish football - you can't even manage to pull together a few half-decent chants at your grounds.

 

So anyway - back on topic.

 

Where exactly are Newcastle in the league again?

 

Yeah, we matter so little that you've signed up to a Newcastle board to argue that You matter.

 

:lol:

 

I've changed my mind, can we keep these around, they're hilarious.

Aye, someone told him it was closer to London than Edinburgh.

Tell you what like, Scottish football was interesting when there were two teams but now with just the one it’s fucking fascinating 

And hes right, looking at their list of recent managers, they all won leagues and cups and stuff, but not one of them would get near an actual big job. They get to lower prem of championship clubs at

Quite a few places higher than league 1 which is about SPL level.

You've repeatedly asked me to back up my claims that you're as bad as eachother. The suggests that you believe your fellow celtic fans offences aren't as serious as those of the Rangers support. I'm stating categorically that I couldn't give a fuck. It's the difference between lung cancer and throat cancer.

 

That typos and spelling mistakes now litter your posts,I'd assume you're becoming quite irate. I'd suggest you step away from the screen, go have a walk, breath the fresh air. :lol:

Haha irate, no? On my phone, yes.

 

It's not really a difference between lung and throat cancer if you choose to educate yourself, but you won't, like the majority of english fans, you stereotype and over generalise like the english do with most things. Racism i.e. bigotry is no less of a problem in england than it is in glasgow, just because you may have a differing problem with racism to glasgow, doesn't make your society any less fucked up. We hate each other because of inequality, power, land, wealth etc. England's racism problems are no different.

 

Racism in your game is a massive issue, so yeah, you carry on believing that the two societies are worlds apart.

Arguing so ferociously that we are irrelevant seems counter productive no?

You're like a Big Issue seller knocking on my door complaining I don't buy the Big Issue from him. Of course I'm going to tell him to fuck off. :lol:

 

Also, this isn't ferocious argument, this is time wasting before I pop out.

 

 

(Why haven't any of these read my username? :lol: )

Not saying you are irrelevant, just saying Forster is better of playing in the champions league

 

A few games in the champions league is worthless when he spends the rest of his time trying to stop Niall McGinn (who?) and Michael Higdon (again?) from scoring past him :lol:

Got to laugh also at those saying they couldn't care about Forster as he was.......3rd choice was it?

 

I seem to remember a certain goalkeeper who couldn't make it at Celtic going on to be your no.1 for numerous years :picknose:

 

Player moving to a big league, there's your difference. Forster would be fighting for 2nd choice now, that's why most aren't really that bothered.

More than a few games, qualifiers, group stages and now the knockout stages as we where good enough to progress

I disagree, the bundesliga has a lot of quality players.

 

The fact that people don't know the top scorer (or top 3 even) isn't ignorance, just a reflection of a mickey mouse league :lol:

 

Edit: Just had a look at the scoring chart, make that top 7 in the league, that league ffs! :lol:

 

It is ignorance though. I'm English and I'm not an Old Firm supporter, so I don't really have an agenda, and I'm not even trying to argue that the SPL is really good, because it's not, but it's certainly not as bad as people like to make out. English people and pundits by and large have no interest in the SPL and don't watch it. That's fair enough, I've got no problem with that. But I do take issue with people who by there own admission don't watch the SPL telling everyone how crap it is.

 

The fact that you don't know who any of the top scorers are doesn't prove anything except that you aren't interested in Scottish football.

There's your difference?

 

You do realise that Forster came here and ended up in the big league that the majority of teams in the EPL (and certainly including yours) dream about reaching - and have no chance?

 

Forster would be fighting for 2nd choice you say? I take it you mean against Tim Krul? The same Tim Krul who developed as a footballer on loan to Scottish side Falkirk?

 

How does that fit in to your argument after that last fact now?

 

Yes we send players to a poorer league because they won't get games here. Forster will come back to the EPL as soon as someone shows an interest in him.

 

People don't know the SPL top scorers because they have little interest in shite players, the same reason they don't follow the Estonian league :unsure2:

Yes he'll be sold for 25 million making a 23 million profit and pardumplin with egg on his face.

How do you know they're shite though? There are players on that list I rate, and some I don't, but those are opinions formed on watching them play. Michael Higdon I think is a limited but reasonably effective target man, and is a player who would struggle to make an impact at a higher level. Leigh Griffiths on the other hand comfortably has the ability to play in the Premier League, and the only thing stopping him is the fact that he's a total fucknugget.

Ah yes of course.

 

Although, I think we should have a listen to the views of one of the world's best goalkeepers before forming an opinion based on your dross:

 

http://www.football-...celtics-forster

 

 

Juventus face Celtic in the Champions League and Gigi Buffon is very impressed with goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

“Of course I know about Fraser,” he told the Daily Record newspaper in Scotland.

“I watch all the top young goalkeepers in the world and I’m sure he can become one of them. The top three young goalkeepers in the world for me are Joe Hart, Manuel Neuer and Salvatore Sirigu. It will be one of those three who will go on to be the best in the world.

“But if Forster keeps on playing like he is there is no reason he can’t be close to or even in that group.

“In a goalkeeper I don’t just look for the great saves but for the authority and confidence he shows. As a goalkeeper you can make only one or two mistakes a season if you want to be the best.

“It’s in the big games where you see character because that is where you are most likely to make mistakes. I have seen both games he played against Barcelona now and not only did he make great saves, he looked confident. He didn’t look like a goalkeeper who was going to make a mistake.”

Juventus visit Glasgow on February 12 and play the second leg in Turin on March 6.

“Fraser is about to play in two big games in the last 16 of the Champions League and it is clear to me he has not only the talent but the character for games like this,” continued Buffon.

“He has another two big games to show Europe what he can do and from what I have seen in him I am sure he will show Europe again.”

 

What do you expect him to say? Seriously?

Your arguments are extremely poor.

 

Krul picked up valuable experience and ended up your number 1 - fact.

 

Two of the SPL's highest goalscorers have become formidable players for a team much higher up the table than yours - fact.

 

How are they poor? Krul was always a quality keeper, he just needed experience so we sent him to a club in a much poorer league to get it?

 

It wasn't a shock to anyone he became our first choice.

 

As for the SPL top scorers, it's just another example of players moving on as soon as a decent club comes in for them.

Call it an educated guess.

An educated guess would be me seeing Loic Remy play twice, and then saying he'd be a great/terrible signing based on that. Saying playing in the SPL=shit isn't an educated guess, it's condescending and arrogant. Of course there are shite players, but there are also some very good players who I'd be happy to see us take a chance on.

So Krul got sent for experience and ended up number 1. Why would he have been sent to the SPL then if indeed it was as bad as some of you morons suggest? You have just proved yourself wrong.

 

Ah - so the players can't be that bad if they are getting moves to "decent" clubs - again, you are doing the arguing for me.

 

Because he needed games, what are you failing to understand here? :lol:

 

Yes the SPL has the odd decent player now and then. Given it's a league with 12 clubs that's got to be expected. They still move on as soon as they show promise though because it's a shit league.

If they are that promising I am sure they will get their moves soon.
