I still think this is Jack says we are no good on free kicks + JWP is good at freekicks = credible link personally.

The timing is just too coincidental otherwise and seems highly unlikely for it to come out when a) we are at an advanced stage of signing Buendia and b) it was unclear if JWP was taking part in the Euro's.

Not at all convinced this has legs.

Thank you but a bit late for my liking. I got castigated for suggesting the same

Does he actually score many free kicks? 

I know he banged on two pearlers against us last season.  But Stuart Gray banged in two Brazilian efforts against Port Vale in the cup years ago and never got another one after that. 

Speaking of Brazil, Roberto Carlos was oft touted as a freekick specialist after his weird banana shot against France back in 97. He actually scored about three free kicks in his life. 

I'm happy enough with the route we've gone in recent years. And if we'd gone for a youngish CM/ defensive midfielder already playing to a decent standard in a good league (but not quite a 'name') I don't have an issue with that at all.  But for the money it would prob take for Southampton to play ball, you could realistically target a Milinkovic Savic or players of similar calibre at the elite level.

Nah Kiwi, there’s a difference between Trent’s “I am not sure this has legs” and your “Haha reading the article this guy is just making up shit. Seriously Guardian wtf.” That difference is why you were castigated.

He scored 40-odd.

Anyway, it's not all about scoring direct FKs, JWP's delivery in general is phenomenal. Also, look how much his all round game has come on, he's added intense pressing to his excellent technique. Be a good signing IMO.

Castigated? Not really. You angrily told everybody that this wasn't happening & said you were leaving the thread when it was at "8 pages already". You're still here giving out about it, bizarrely

I love that people will just confidently make up stats and assume nobody will check. 3 career free kick goals for Roberto Carlos. Amazing.

Did you know Alan Shearer never scored a penalty?

If he doesn't have any legs then why are we even bothering to pursue him?  Surely we could find someone more suitable?

Would still be a better signing than Drinkwater

That’s offensive to the disabled.

 

you should apologise to Drinkwater.

To be fair, he might have always thought he only scored 3 because he passed out in delerium after watching till number 8...

I thought it was horseshit but I've asked around and a few guys I know who usually know when somethings afoot say it might be legit.

Maybe we're planning to have him exploit the millions of free kicks Buendia and Grealish will win. Could be top scorer in the league if so.

But there are plenty of excellent free kicks takers out there, why JWP?

Because he’s actually a pretty good player too.
