    it got tiresome very, very quickly, the other users started ignoring him, and he stopped posting.

    Some of those links above can certainly be considered to meet the definition of “dribbling” even if over only a few seconds or yards.

    what do ya’s want from him here lads? He was asked to post clips to back up his claim that Stapleton was a dribbler he has went and done that. I have see countless opinions aired on here with much less evidence to support them and the poster isn’t pulled on it never mind outright hounded about it.

    If others don’t agree the clips reflect that and don’t consider Frank Stapleton to be a player who was a particularly good dribbler that is merely a matter of opinion. This is a football forum designed, surely, for the sharing and discussion of differing opinions.
    Thank you. My evidence is there, Stapleton got a few injuries at 28 or something lost a bit of pace, he wasnt the tallest 9, but some are angry because i compare Stapleton with Gabriel Batistuta. This is a forum to debate football. Stapleton wasnt a dribbler forward like Kevin Keegan or Craig Bellamy or mcgeady, but he had some flair, the roulette in that goal against 3 defenders is tremendous

    Having some flair or being able to create space (or be fouled by a keeper) isn't the same thing as being a dribbler though. By a long shot

    Stu, Pffaf brought him down when Frank dribbled past him after a neat through ball from Jim Beglin, that is not a dribble or gambetta or regate as we call it in Italy Spain France and Latin América?

    No, he knocked the ball past him (maybe too far)

    Anyone can do that. It's not a dribble though

    No, none of them are dribbles. Stapleton was not a dribbler. Stop claiming otherwise. Any time you do, it's an infraction for not following instructions

    Clip 3 - not a dribble; he just turned past the two defenders. Good play and a great goal, but not a dribble.
    Clip 2 - he in fact turns back to create space rather than try go past the defenders. Again, a great goal, but not a dribble.
    Clip 1 - that's a great first touch, not a dribble.

    Damien Duff was a dribbler. Stapleton wasn't.
    I started reading top of page 33 and saw the comment re: Stapleton. Chuckled and thought it would be mostly ignored but skipped to page 35 and saw this post.

    Next we'll be talking about Damien Duff being a midfield enforcer in the mould of Gattuso because he once made a tackle.

    Just takes little moments like that alright. An awful error from Pfaff too; Stapleton was going nowhere. So instead with the final kick we got an away draw against the World Cup semi-finalists.

    Indeed. Stapleton and Liam Brady. I still dont forgive Jack for that, He didnt take Liam to the wc for any of Slaven-David Kelly-Byrne. Slaven was the form player ok, byrne could play several positions ok, so it was david kelly I guess

    i would say i would have loved a clinical finishing in Paris a la Frank Stapleton for that 1 on 1 against Lloris.

    Duff was a trickster

    I wonder in some alternate universe is there a Foot.ar with some random Irish lad posting nonsense several times a day.
