    You said good! And to use your basketball example (fine by me I’m a dubs fan :lol: ) you couldn’t say a college star was “never good.” I couldn’t say guys who ran over me playing in high school were “never good” even when they didn’t make it pro. Potential and fruition is a long road and at numerous points you can stop and say someone is good or not. That’s not to say that they will be a star at the top level. But they were still good. Bojan was great at la Masia. Because his senior career stuttered doesn’t mean he was never good!

    Agree though that NOW it’s stupid to say imagine him in our line up because we’ve seen his level in 2019. It was a very different thing to be saying that in 2011 though. He was a *good* 18 year old or whatever age back then. He is not a good 26 year old now, though he could have been.

    Is that the sum total of his abilities? Most pub players could do something like that.

    I completely understand with what your saying he was *good* at youth level but when I say he was “never good” I mean at the pro level which is in the end what people are talking about now when saying “imagine him on this lineup” as for the college star example Adam Morrison comes to mind who lit up the NCAA with Gonzaga some people even compared him to Larry bird :lol: and then he only lasted 4 years in the NBA and that was that.

    To your point was he *good* in college? Ya I would say so but was he good in the next level in the NBA? Nope.


    So that’s what I mean about he was not good I was talking about the pros and not what he did at the youth academy.

    I think with Ravel is if he had carried on with his development at utd then we would have the creative 10 we are lacking now. And that sucks

    Don't hate Colster - appreciate.

    This was his peak Colin, his fabled performance against Lithuania for England u21s - look at the body swerve to fool the keeper......beautiful!



    Sadly he decided to kick off with his teammate in the same game. Bittersweet memories.

    I don't know why people are so desperate for him to succeed. I have no sympathy when someone messes up their career due to being lazy or having an idiotic personality.

    He must have a great agent, though. I don't get why clubs are still taking him on; he is a failure.

    He is a failed Jack Wilshere. At least Wilshere had one good first team game to build a myth career on, this guy hasnt even had that.

    Look at Zaha now, and Ravel...

    I'm sure John O'Shea used to do stuff like that in training too. He's showing off, big deal.

    One troll says we should get him back followed by 40 posts calling him shit and a cnut. Rinse and repeat. This place is embarrassing.
