Iceland getting into the World Cup will hopefully inspire kari to have a great season with Aberdeen. He will desperate to keep his place in the Iceland team for the World Cup, so will hopefully dominate the spl

 

You reckon he'll retire from football all together after the World Cup? Only on a 1 year deal with us so I'd be very surprised if he doesn't retire, a lot of players want to end it on top and no better place than the World Cup after leading the Dons to a League/Scottish Cup double!

I sincerely hope you are wrong Tyzo. I would be very surprised If Derek McInnes does not have plans to tie up Arnason on at least a new two year contract in the near future. He is a class act and if Davie Weir managed to play until he was forty with the Huns I am sure a player with Kari's ability and astute reading of the game still has a few years left in the tank for us. He has stated clearly he wants to finish his career with the Dons so let us hope he is here for at least three years before hanging up his boots.

Most players usually retire from internationals first before having a few more years of club football only. He turns 35 on Friday so for a centre half there's a good chance he's got a good couple of years left in the tank considering he's still playing regularly at international level for a team who are qualifying for tournaments. Hopefully he carries on his form for us and we get another years extension sorted in the next few months

Lee Miller really was the worst for that. Made his whole style of football very hard on the eye.

 

I've watched him at Falkirk a few times and he still plays that way.

 

are you kidding on?

 

Lee Miller was a proper technician and Mulgrew benefited massively from it

Be crazy not to try & get Kari to extend his deal now. A year is perfectly safe option as we would get some compo for him being in WC anyway. I believe a two year deal would be a reasonably safe option also as he's not exactly drawing his pension anytime soon as a CH

I agree except for your Sinclair example. If he played in the EPL he wouldn't get in the England team anyway - they gave some great attacking options.

Jesse Lingard, Raheem Sterling and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are not "great attacking options", in my opinion.

Agreed. Especially regarding Sterling. Overrated pish that got an extra over inflated transfer fee because he's English. He's fast & powerful. Just what they love but his assists, goals & passing accuracy record is shit compared to others in same area. Especially around the time when he was sold & hyped. English footballs josh magennis lol

Reckon Kari will be given a coaching role when the time comes; imparting all his wonderful wisdom to the up and coming lambs. The family gets bigger and happier. And of course sexier.

Technician meaning what? Good at diving at the merest contact -yep.

He was effective but horrible to watch a striker for us throw down like that so many times in a game.

I used to support him & believe it was because he was like a big ballet dancer & easy to push off balance so was being fouled but that was very stupid to think that way because football is a contact sport & he took 'contact' to a whole other level

I don't ever watch them or the EPL so I'm just assuming based on the way they breeze through games and the chat I hear.

Also I'm pretty sure the English defence is shite so they must be decent going forward to win games so easily.

I'm not saying they are all Messi and Ronaldo like, merely easily better than sinclair who frankly is over rated too.

Lol

You don't watch he games, have no idea about them as players but just brazenly saying they're better than Sinclair?

Why, because they play in the premiership?

You not seeing the FUCKING hilarity in that bearing in mind your arguments in the Scotland thread

Not really no. Since England are doing not bad without sinclair so he has fuck all argument to dislodge them from the team.

Are England struggling to score goals? No.

Is sinclair world class? Absolutely not.

It's not hard MT, and you also ignored the part where I mentioned input from others. My whole team at work are English, they talk about their players plenty so I get a feel for it.

Are you saying I'm wrong and Sinclair is miles better than the players they have already? I really doubt it, he's not even celtics best player.

Lol mate you did exactly what you chastise Strachan for

Know nothing personally about them but cos they're in the premiership they must be better than someone in the SPFL

@RAZOR wanna be adjudicator here?

And yes Sinclair is better than Lingard for a kick off

I don't even know who Lingard is MT though there's no reason why guys like Sinclair shouldn't be 'knocking on England's door'. Playing against the top teams in the Chumpions League.

In all seriousness. How far is Joe Lewis out the England team? I've seen Joe Hart have some howlers.

Not at all, I told you, I have sources of trusted info.

The Strachan comparison is stupid unless you think I'm the England manager?

You think sinclair is world class?

He's not even celtics best English player.

Joe Hart should be their number 2 at best

Butland is easily their best keeper and probably Forster 2nd

Then with Pickford coming through Super Joe is fucked
