What a player this lad can be, could be a star.... but for the love of God (Yod) please stop calling him Gok-er-res, Guy-oh-ker-es or any other combinations starting with a hard 'Gee' or 'Guh' sound.

Rules for the letter 'G' in Sweden say that a G before hard vowels (a, o, u, å) is pronounced like 'guh' in English ie, 'Gap'. But a 'G' before soft vowel (ä, ö, e, i, y) is pronounced like 'yuh' ie 'yogurt' (there are exceptions, like Göteborg but that to do with the 2 'G's

So to the best of my knowledge from listening to Swedish Comms ... Gyökeres = Yer-ker-es (well it's more like Yer-ker-esh but just as long as we get over the fecking hard 'Gee' or 'Guh' I'm happy

Yes I know I'm a pedant and that I should have better things to do but type a rant on a player name at 3am but I'm buzzing we are doing so well. Really enjoying all the fan made content online like YouTube and stuff but every single one complely mangles his name !

This was my effort on the other thread (it was written just after then penalty miss)

(To Kaiser Chiefs, Every day I love you less and less)

We all love you Viktor Gyorkeres

Every time we see you in the flesh

You always leave defences in distress

Positioning is like a GPS

(Verse 2)

We all love you Viktor Gyorkeres

Together we will be a great success

Though your penalty was shit, I must confess

But you had the balls to take it nonetheless

I have to admit that I wasn’t that bothered when we signed him but he’s been brilliant and he’s also deceptively fast. His dribbling still makes me laugh though but somehow it has seemed to work so far. His first touch is decent but when he’s dribbling every touch looks like a miscontrol 😂

Has so many assets deceptive speed, big & powerful on the ball, good ball control under pressure, hard to knock off the ball, super fit too he’s as tough at the end of a game as he was at the start, works the line left side right side pulling opposing CBs out of the middle and the most important thing knows where the back of the net is, at the moment he’s turning into an all round proper centre-forward.

He has been really impressive from the tail end of last season but particularly this year. For me the area he does need to improve on is his finishing. He is doing okay and is proving himself as a decent Championship player but if he is to be a level above he needs to be more clinical. He is young and seemingly hungry enough to improve much more and will be learning all the time from the likes of Godden and Walker and the man himself, Robins.

Agree to a point regarding finishing but he’s very mobile and doesn’t stop very central at all, the key there is his partner for now it’s Waggy who’s doing ok and then there’s Walker & Godden who can come in still an area to build on.

Thanks. We could have done with this when we first signed him!

The obvious one is to butcher an ABBA song. Something like

Viktor Gyökeres going to score again
My my, how can we resist you
(To Mamma Mia)

or


You can score , you can jive, having the time of your life
See Viktor, watch that scene, diggin' the scoring dream
(To Dancing Queen)

or


Viktor Gyökeres goals are gonna blind me
Because he’s a sky blue
Scoring like you do
'We are the crowd for you
(To Super Trouper)

There got to be something in the chorus for S.O.S. singing Gyökeres instead of S.O.S but the replacement lyrics just won’t come to me.

So all that basically boils down to 'it's a silent G'

What about the new lad Todd? Is the surname pronounced Kane, Cane or Cain?

So when you're scoring, you can you hear us singing
Gyökeres

The goals you give us, no one can save them
Gyökeres

How about this to the tune of S.O.S…


Oh, when we need you,

O’Hare plays the ball through,

Gyökeres!



The goals you gave us,

They will always save us,

Gyökeres!



When you’re on…

We all know…

That the Games almost won.



Or we just repeat the first verse, and replace O’Hare with a different name so everyone gets a shout out:



Oh, when we need you,

Hamer plays the ball through,

Gyökeres!



Oh, when we need you,

Allen plays the ball through,

Gyökeres!



Oh, when we need you,

Dabo plays the ball through,

Gyökeres!



Oh, when we need you,

Sheaf he plays the ball through,

Gyökeres!
