Thread: Dele Adebola's Stick Already

    Default Dele Adebola's Stick Already

    I keep reading about all of our signings - and the one that gets the most negative comments is Dele Adebola. Lets give the guy a chance. He hasn't even pulled on a shirt for forest yet, and hes already getting stick. Lets give the guy a chance, he was playing in average teams the last few years and has scored goals, and with good players supporting him from midfield and a good strike partner - he can do well again.

    Lets give him a chance eh and get off his back

    So what exactly are you saying? That we should give him a chance?

    In honour of our new Hitman, every stand in the ground is to have a "Dele Counter" installed which will sell cheese and other savoury snacks during the half-time interval

    I'm "pro" everyone else though. Ok, maybe not Smith after the "Ikea" incident.

    That Dele needs a stick.

    Maybe Breckin left his Zimmer frame behind and he could use that instead ?

    Sadly for Dele (and somewhat unfairly) he's carrying the can for all the other older players who've come here and flopped in recent seasons.

    fair one i may have gone overbored on what i was trying to say - but he got bristol city's player of the season last year, and scored 15 goals in all comps with average players around him

    Agreed - but hes not like andy cole, who had played a handful of times over 3 seasons, he played 55 times last year for and average team and ok 15 goals in 55 games isn't brilliant, but hes the type of player who brings another option. I'd say you can't really question his fitness playing that many games at this level - so - although you might be suprised to hear this - I RECKON WE SHOULD GIVE HIM A CHANCE..

    A great addition in my opinion, we have no real target in the air or that poses a threat strength wise until we signed Dele.

    Can anyone remember the amount of balls launched upfront from the back which Earnshaw simply had no chance of winning therefore giving away cheap possesion?

    I think any player getting stick before he has played is harsh.

    But I'd have to agree with people who doubt the validity of Nottingham Forest signing the big man.

    He's not young and he's not prolific.
    We didn't give him a contract because he wanted two years. From his personal view, who can blame him?

    I would have been annoyed if we had offered a guy his age a two year deal.

    Lovely bloke though.

    I thought this was a thread about him getting his knob out already.

    So let's put this in to context. We have bought Dele Adebola because he is better than any other option available to the club - reserves, youth, english leagues, norwegian, danish, german?

    I can't beleive he is. Your telling me there isn't a 20 goal a season striker from those other leagues that could do a job for us? Absolute nonesense.

    We will learn to regret this purchase - a waste.

    How stupid slagging him off already... Why was he bristol citys player of the season last season then? Wonder if the same people will be shaking their heads when he scores; instead of sitting in their seats grumbling...

    We've given him a contract, a signing on fee I'm sure, probably some relocation money. I cannot understand for the life of me buying a 33 year old for a hungry aggresive player in his early twenties who wants to prove himself.

    I hope he does succeed, for the sake of the club and the bigger picture.

    One of our major problems last season was lack of experience. Being a squad of young players is all good but they also need some players who have been around the block a bit for certain situations.

    I'm not saying a 20 goal a season stiker would be free.

    Do you even know what this means? You said it, then didn't use any context whatsoever.

    We have 4 other strikers capable of scoring 20 goals a season. We did, however, need the option of having a strong, tall player for them to play off. THAT is the situation in context.
