    Fair enough.

    You get no time on the ball playing for Celtic, it's as simple as that and you can believe what you want.

    Shelton Martis: "When I had a word with him afterwards he said to me, 'I'm knackered'. I said, 'Welcome to Scotland'"

    Hesselink: "Although I only played for less than 40 minutes, I am still out of breath. The pace of the game in Scotland is unbelievably fast."
    ...especially as he admitted that he struggled to breathe throughout the final ten minutes, such was the pace of the game.

    And that's a home game. Away games would be even worse.

    all the people that say mcgeady is inconsistent and is not good enough yet surely cant argue that even if he had a bad game against germany he still would have posed a lot more of a threat than S. Reid who was completely out of game altogether

    To counter your argument, allow me to introduce Pele: One of the greatest footballers of all time............ Constantly spouts rubbish about the game

    I'm interested to hear what rubbish he has spouted, I've just finished his autobiography and I don't recall much crap in it.

    Did he include the bit where he says about Nicky Butt being one of the best players in the world and then convieniently changing it a year later to Steven Gerrard when he was in the England team and Butt was in the Birmingham Reserves?

    I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure he said he was the best player at the World Cup ........ Considering he wasn't even the best midfielder in Birmngham last year that was a pretty big shout!

    Pele believes midfielder Nicky Butt has been the player of the World Cup so far and has picked him out as a key man for England in their quarter-final against Brazil.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport3/worldcu...00/2054738.stm

    The above is the opening paragraph in the article, however the the only quotes attributed to pele in that article are below, so how much you can put down to the bbcs artistic license Im not sure!!

    "Butt is the player who has been consistent with his good marking, pressure and passing," he told the BBC.

    Well he was right about that though. Butt had a great World Cup in 2002.

    Mc geady is playin the best football of his career and he would run rings round S reid any day of the week. Why was Mc Geady not on? Because Staunton hasnt got a clue how to manage a team at this level ------ Way out of his leauge and needs to be replaced ASAP .. Does anyone here truly believe we will Qualify with this fella in charge? Great player but he is not ready for MGT!

    He was always sh**e though. Pure s***e just had good players around him making him look good a la Phil Neville and JOS at united. So it's a ridiculous statement about Butt IMO.

    Many great footballers don't have a clue about the game anyway. Look at Brady. He hasn't a breeze (just ask any Brighton or Celtic fan). There are countless more that now ply their trade as pundits that I could roll off but I won't (Lawro).

    I think brady would know the game fairly well (he is the head of the arsenal youth acadamy as far as I know)but may not have the personality for management. not many people do tho. he managed both brighton and celtic but not exactly in the most ideal circumstances.Celtic was a graveyard for a lot of managers before Jansen and O neill while Graham Souness was changing face of Scottish Football. Brighton was just a financial shambles.

    The orignal point was that the great Pele said that about Butt and during this world cup he said it about Gerrard, claiming that he had spotted how great he was at the last world cup when he missed it through injury!!!!

    Have you not seen that is was not a ridiculous statement yet?? If you read the actual quote he says Butt was outstanding for England at the 2002 World Cup and for him was one of the players of the tournament so far. Considering Butt won many plaudits for his performances at that World Cup then I can't understand what you keep goin on about

    Yes Butt is sh!te but every dog has his day and that World Cup was his...

    Sorry hombre to be so late back to this but I'm internet lite at home.

    Maldini said this after McGeady had played against him in the Champions League, not from a press box where he was keen to impress whoever is hosting him at that particual moment. And as far as I know Maldini is the opposite to Pele in this regards, not a man to give praise lightly.

    On the night McGeady was man of the match causing the Milan defence all sorts of problems that they had no real answer for. I see few people in the Ireland squad at the moment who could wreak that kind havoc amoungst top international teams at the moment.
    Where am I now? I'm over here,
    I've got those empty pockets and I can't afford a beer.
