Looking forward to see how Noor does next season,looked good when he first came,But his form dropped at the back end of the season.just hope he starts the season well and carries that all season.
Difficult to tell. He was injured at the back end of the season and then was lined up for international duty during the close season. So he may be up for it, or totally knackered. We shall see.

He has played four games for Afghanistan this month, played two full games and subbed off after 85 minutes and 45 minutes in the other two. I would expect he could miss the first week of pre-season to give him a short break. Not ideal, but jumping straight into pre-season after several international fixtures is not ideal either.

Don't like these sort of videos,Anyone can make them self's look good on a video clip,Don't get me wrong, I like powell as a player,but rather have someone who proves how good he's on the pitch and let's his football do the talking.
I Know what you mean! My mate often films my golf swing for me!
I know I'm up there with Tiger but he makes me look ****!

Not so far, but I’m with some others on this thread in that I think he’ll be much improved next season and could be a useful weapon for us in terms of his pace and energy. A full pre season and some top drawer coaching could just do the trick. I think he’s got goals up his sleeve too.

I would rather he had goals in his boots. Otherwise any goals would off the cuff and probably hand ball.:Winking:

We won’t know if he has the ability until the season starts and we see how he plays across it.

What these videos do show is that he is dedicated to pushing himself and improving and hats off to him for the effort.

From what I’ve seen of Powell if he can stop with the head down and going for goal everytime he has the ball, if he learns to look up and if it’s a unattainable angle for a shot, go for the pass he would be an exceptional player.

He’s going to have a full pre season with us and it’s full time rather than the part time he had at Kettering. Fingers crossed he is a real nuisance for defences and gets goals and assists galore.

Great to see players working like this during the summer months. Glad to see him working on his shooting but he looks like he struggles to get his shots off the floor a lot of the time. Would love to see him mixing it up a bit with some going too corner too. A lot of the go across the keeper. But as I say it’s great to see him working so hard to improve and come back in his best shape

On what basis are you saying that? Because he's posting these videos?
"My goals are beyond your understanding" is a fairly full of yourself statement id say.

Nothing wrong with confidence and a bit of arrogance, most top sportsmen have those qualities, as i said you just need to back it up in the real world, and i hope he does.

I think you're reading what you want to read into it. In reality, I don't think it's arrogant at all. All I think I think it says is that he is hardworking, ambitious, sets unbelievably lofty standards and benchmarks for himself, will strive to reach them and is extra hard on himself if he doesn't. I don't see a single thing wrong with that sentiment.

If he had said "my skill is beyond your understanding" or "my achievements are beyond your understanding" then you might have had a point.
