Really? I don't think so. I think he can be a good finisher but without that far too often games pass him by. You couldn't play him on his own up front.You're right he's a striker who cost us £1m and scored 1 in 5 but is seen as the messiah
Not really-just too much boozing.With Shipley I've got a feeling he's not a 'natural' athlete insofar as he looks knackered very quickly. Plus he seems to lose condition when not playing regularly. Could be a blood oxygen/red blood cell thing that is fine for the average person but far from ideal for elite sport. Plus I believe he has asthma which won't help and with Covid around those things aren't going to help.
This is partly the point - Allen is alot more productive than Shipley, but as always its alright to call out some players but not others. Baka has recieved much more stick than Shipley but atleast he pays no attention to it, and doesnt give it the big one when he gets his 1 goal in a season.Out of Shipley, Baka, Allen, Jobello, Kastaneer, I’d keep Shipley in a heartbeat and kick out the actual deadwood.
He maybe was going to get his dick out. But realised his mum watching the game.The faux outrage at Shipley's goal celebration is hilarious considering the dog's abuse he's received on here. So many delicate hypocritical souls who are happy to dish it out without being able to take a pretty tame response. It wasn't as if he got his dick out and said suck on this
Gets mentioned on here and taken as fact after a tongue in cheek interview quote from Ben Wilson. He very rarely drinks, certainly not near games and never pints, but it's another stick to beat him with so often gets regurgitated on here.
The point entirely is Shipley at his best offers more than the listed names.This is partly the point - Allen is alot more productive than Shipley, but as always its alright to call out some players but not others. Baka has recieved much more stick than Shipley but atleast he pays no attention to it, and doesnt give it the big one when he gets his 1 goal in a season.
I stand corrected!mate, I can cane it all weekend and still pull off a Cruyffesque performance at 5 a side on a Monday.
last time I played 11 a side if I was a horse they'd have shot me on the side of the pitch to put me out of my misery.I stand corrected!
In seriousness though it's hardly the same level is it? Plus I used to be able to play 5-a-side running about all day but 10 mins and 1 sprint into 11-a-side I was fucked.
