Where do you think Charlie Adam will go? Is he good enough to play for a team in the champions league?
I just want us to make an approach table in a bid in the region of £9-15m and just get the lad.
£17.5m tops. Otherwise if we dont, and you guys do - and he flourishes at United - we'll regret it.
Hendersons one for the future, we have to wait for 5 long years before we can compare him to Charlie Adam of 2010/11.
by then, Charlie Adam may have moved to United or some place else and playing the football of his life. He'll only be 30 remember, 30 yrs of age in 2015/16, and i consider '30' to be the age when you are at golden age of your career, where you have mastered your various disciplines areas of your game and are beginning to USE that, and apply it - and to win stuff.
Never under-estimate what an asset 'experience' is. You can have all the fancy tricks, bags of pace, silky dribbling skills in the world - but without experience you'll never be the finished article. With Age comes experience - and your decision making on the pitch is honed to perfection.
Lot of kids are in their physical prime and are blessed technicaly but mentally lacking in places - either they switch off, get lazy, over do things, play the wrong pass, too late, too early - hold onto possession too long - rush things....so mental part of your game is important as much as technique.
His all round game is brilliant, great passer - good vision, strong kid - doesnt shy away form tackles and can take a few too, Hes a standard Wilshere needs to atl east reach at Charlies age if we are to take Jack seriously at his current tender age.
Charlie Adam's best years are ahead of him imo - i reckon he'll peak at 28 , 29 maybe even beyond that as some midfielders have done.
Scholes peaked at 31, 32 imo.
Do you think Adam Dunn has become a big problem as Albert Haynesworth for the other DC team?
Your claim that he has shut down isn't accurate. He's hitting .308 with a homer and 3 RBI in 7 games this month. He struggled through a rough August but his numbers have always dipped in August and September as evidenced by his .229 career average in those months.
He is on record as saying he would be willing to return to DC and he's only hurting himself if he doesn't make it to 40 home runs since he'll be in contract negotiations after this season.
Comparing him to the fat slug taking up space on the ;Skins roster is ridiculous.
Who would you rather have on your team: Ryan Howard or Adam Dunn?
I would go with Howard (both are high power high strikeout, risk vs reward type players) but Howard is the type to step up in the clutch and get the job done where as Dunn seems to get more numbers in garbage time than in a crucial game. Howard plays a bettter first than Dunn plays in the OF, plus Howard maintains a higher average than Dunn. Both will give you big bombs but Howard has a knack for doing it at the right time!
How accurately do shows like Adam-12, The A-Team, Police Story, and Andy Griffith portray police work ?
Adam 12 in its time was pretty accurate at least as far as showing patrol officers at work-They over did the Miranda however, they gave it to everybody even on traffic stops sometime,
The A-Team pure TV hogwash
Police Story, again for its time, pretty accurate but a lot of fiction drama involved in it
Andy Griffith-NO way, pure TV comedy. They never gave the Miranda to anybody regardless of what the event was and since good ole Andy was also the Justice of the Peace there is no way he could be both if this were a real setting
You didn't mention Dragnet-Good show and again for its time, pretty accurate as far as what goes on in the Detective Bureau.
For the Mets , I really can't think of anyone like Adam Clayton. That used to be Marlon Anderson or Endy Chavez, but they're both not having good years. For now I would say the closest to Adam Clayton would be either Nick Evans or Daniel Murphy. They're both kind of quite and they work really hard. They've been playing pretty good since they've been called up. It's hard for a New York team to really have a full-fledged Adam Clayton because of all the media and stuff. Most of the time, if you're helping a New York team win, you will get recognized.
What is Team Adam compared to Team Edward and Team Jacob?
I've not read the books but I think that "Team Adam" is probably just a bit of anti-Twilight backlash... There are people in the world who really don't care one way or the other for Vampires or Werewolves because, frankly, they're not real. They never had Team Mr Darcy t-shirts did they? No!
Sorry rant over...
