did you not learn that 110% is 10% more than 100%?
Also many games where he has appeared lazy and disinterested
Of course you can - it depends on your effort level last time. If it was only 90%, then 110% effort is possible.
I think Ranger has been a massive influence this season - there have been some games when he has won every header going and I think he shows commitment on the pitch.
What I don't like so much is the way he is treated as, or is seen as, a little boy by some. At the Gala dinner in PB's speech he sat on the floor like he was on the naughty step and there were a couple of comments along the lines that he needs 'special care'. We know he's been bad, the only way to see if he can fully turn the corner is if folk treat him like a grown up.
That 15 minutes at Bramall Lane will live long in my memory. There was a player who really wanted to prove that Phil Brown was right to put some trust in him and to prove the doubters wrong. The rest of the season didn't quite live up to that, but it has set a standard which I would love him to live up to next season.
No doubt at all that he's an exciting player, but he has to be able to produce that vibe consistently and not just be a flash in the pan. Hopefully, with the court case over and done with and a full pre-season, we'll see the best of Nile next year.
So was he found out not guilty?
He pleaded guilty, the other 2 didnt , so his sentencing was deferred until the others case was heard, last thing i heard was that on the first day of the trial (Apr 22nd ???) One of the other two changed his plea to guilty.
I have not seen anything on the one remaining accused, or on Niles sentence. Has anyone else?
For me, Ranger has had moments of brilliance, a lot of averageness and a lot of injuries.
For sure he is a great asset to the squad and has been a valuable addition this season, but Fortune has been consistently good, so it comes down to whether you gamble and hope for Ranger to be on one of his magic days, knowing that he could quite easily be completely anonymous, or settle for Fortune being good?
Not a criticism of Ranger at all given what he's had off the field and after a year out of the game, and when he returned from injury it really helped spark our turnaround in form.
Cheers, I know he pleaded guilty didn't know the trial was for his co-defendants.
I wouldn't go that far he has had some very average games when he has started, Millwall in the cup comes to mind but is a good signing overall. We have looked our best when we start with a fit Ranger and then Fortune after 60 minutes. Fortune is an ideal player ideal player away from home when we are a goal up. His second half performance at Oldham would be right up there on the list of best 45 minutes in a season.
