Old Joey Cole


Recommended Posts

There were some slightly worrying signs that Joey has fallen back in to some of his bad old habits on Sunday.

He started at the tip of the diamond and spent most of his time running down blind alleys and spending too long holding on to the ball without finding any end product.

Hopefully it is just short lived as he gets back up to speed but we need him firing on all cylinders next saturday given our limited options.

I wouldn't worry about it, he probably thought that seeing as it was a "meaningless game" he could try a few tricks and get away with it.

You could level similar criticisms at most of the Manc's side yesterday, who from what I saw on MOTD, were noticably pulling back from 50-50 type challenges, and anything else that could conceivably keep them out of the Cup Final. With an unbroken home record to go for, we had slightly more at stake, but I suspect our players exercised a similar amount of caution, whether consciously or otherwise.

I wouldn't worry about his game- playing central isn't really his position and yeah, it did show, but it won't matter. he won't play there often or in big games. his diving is worrying for those who don't like diving though.

Very true, but his stepovers were sweeeet!

Joe Cole is the bollox, there is nothing to worry about. I think he may have come across as if he lacked energy but I am sure that was all part of the plan. There is no way that we wanted to risk having him injured when the FA Cup final is only next week. I am reckoning that little Joey will outshine that little sh*t Ronaldo ten fold next Saturday!

I actually thought he was brilliant but several times demonstrated further what we already know- he can't find a killer pass. That's not his game and it's probably too late to change it.

Realising that attribute 3 years ago was a stroke of wisdom by Mourinho.

Safe to say itis no coincidence that the first scent of criticism of Joe sees the grand return of Rizza icon_wink.gif

Welcome back, you missed nothing, we were just passing time till you returned.
