Your favourite non Burnley player.

Post by tim_noone » Fri Mar 01, 2019 4:23 pm

I'm struggling to make tomorrow's game and the most dissapointing thing for me is missing Wilfrid Zaha play....obviously I hope we do a job on him and press his Buttons.....part of the fun. But I really like him as a player and his histrionics also.

Lionel Messi. Him and Thierry Henry are the two players who, beyond the confines of the hallowed Turf, do it for me. Saw Messi and Neymar play together for Barcelona at Camp Nou and Messi scored a free kick from a ridiculous angle. Unbelievable Jeff!

I can't really appreciate other premier league players while we're in it.

Bergkamp and Zola were superb though.

Just considering current players in the English leagues. As someone who played hundreds of games at full back, I like to see good full backs & really appreciate watching Andrew Robertson of Liverpool. He's got excellent judgement in defence and very good at timing runs/getting crosses in going forwards. Still got a few years to get even better too.
For a non-defender, I like to watch Eriksen of Spurs. Good control either foot, nice pass either foot and always available to receive, drifts into clever positions + the odd goal (though I can think of one I wish he hadnt got late in a game when he was subbed on).

Obviously a contentious one, but as a child it was Malcolm Macdonald.
Semi-recently, and as much for off-field as on, Eric Cantona.

As a former keeper at school/sunday league teams, for me the games when David De Gea is being battered with shots and somehow pulls out saves, unbelievable.

Though for me, my absolute all time favourite player is Paul Scholes.

David Silva is/was something special.

I have a lot of respect for De Gea too, rarely makes a mistake these days, and has single handed won United many a point this season. When he's on form he's unbeatable.

The best in the world for me.

Keiran Trippier... Thanks for scoring that peach of an own goal for Chelsea, I've gained a bit of absolution because the only ever own goal I scored was exactly the same. :D

A fantastic player for us and always talks good about Burnley but £3 Million????????????????? No wonder Burnley only have £24 million in the bank, it should be £54 million.
