Iíve decided all you DMOís (defensive midfielder obsessives) donít know what your talking about
You canít even make your mind up about what one actually is

And youíve all been talking complete bollocks for the last 3 seasons and more. 😊

                                                               

That's why villa have been bollocks because we have no one to protect the back four when needec

Reo-Coker really was absolutely shit.

I thought it at the time and I still think it now.

Dog shit.

By christ he was shit. If he had the ball and tried to run with it, off he'd go in a straight line, head down, eyes fixed on the ball until he ran into an opponent.

And then there was this:

It was funny when O'Neill got Nige by the throat in a training session, years before it was a popular sex act. Pube-head the porn-pioneer!

First time I ever heard the word "contretemps" used by a football manager. Didn't they fall out because O'neil expressed similar sentiments to Paulie, and basically told Nige he was shit?

Which game was it when Reo-Coker somehow went through on goal with only the keeper to beat (obviously fucked it up) and it seemed like half the ground was laughing even before he got his shot off? Unless I've dreamt it?

Was that the 0-0 at home to Chelsea in 10/11 season?

It was against Chelsea not sure what year but prime Messi impersonation then you saw the panic in his eyes as he approached the keeper.

It doesn't reflect well on the manager who bought NRC. Sounds like they didn't do due diligence and watch him play, scope him out. And of course the manager who bought NRC was... Martin O'Neill.

MON was a big fan of all things continental.

I've seen worse than NRC in our midfield, he wasn't too bad at winning the ball back to be fair but for the money we paid which was quite a bit at the time, he was a let down. He did play a fair bit in 2 seasons where we finished 6th though.

At the time the three central midfielders that most teams seemed to be sniffing round were Reo Coker, Barton and Parker. Trust us to get the one who couldn't play football.

There was one game at VP when NRC played centre back. Can't remember why

Philippe Auclair described it as a ďstunning coup for VillaĒ. Talked about him being one of the future stars of French football.

I heard him say this as well. Definitely seemed surprised we'd pulled this off and made me optimistic.
