    I think they both managed to avoid spazzing the ball off of their own shins most of the time.

    I still remember the time Sissoko just ran the ball straight out of play. He works hard, but is so technically awful that we should have cashed in on him in the summer.

    Every team needs a water carrier and Sissoko is our water carrier. Get used to it guys, it's going to be a long season.............

    I'm as far from fickle as you can get of you understand what the word really means. I did not rate him before he joined, I certainly did not rate him during his first two seasons nor did rate him last season.

    I'm an consistent (the very opposite of fickle).I do not rate Sissoko. He is a poor player. It is that simple. You're entitled to rate him if you wish but our standards are just different.

    Who is City's water carrier? Barca's?

    Yet he laid on the perfectly weighted ball for Kane to pass the ball into the net for his second goal v villa

    TBH I cannot see another top team going in for him, despite him being a world cup winner and all. Poch has identified a role for him, best we back him and his positive contributions, easy to slate anyone. I mean, probably one of our best players can't take a corner kick to get pass the oppo's first man

    He's the modern Zakora :D

    Was he in the French WC squad?

    Think you may have found the key to their repeated failure in recent seasons.

    The teams that went out of the CL to opponents with water carriers?

    if you are going to go down that route, look at the team that won it, they are 90% water carriers

    I don't know why I keep opening this thread. It's like picking at a scab or a dog returning to its own sick.

    When I am lying on my death bed and the missus asks me if there is anything I regret, I will answer, "The hours - possibly days - I spent on the Sissoko merry-go-round".

    On the plus side, as I type this they have just started playing Cheap Trick's "Surrender" on Radio Caroline. Perhaps it is a sign.

    In one-off matches. Can you genuinely say we're a better team than City or Barca? Because there's a nice, padded place waiting for you if you think so.

    And the worst team to have won it since Chelsea fluked it.

    Might that be because of City’s unlimited money and depth in every position, rather than the fact that we have the temerity to play with a player who’s value comes from being selfless and doing a job for the team? Given that we beat them over two legs, with a performance that personified those qualities - hard work, physicality, not stopping for 95 mins etc etc.

    Let’s see how we do this season with hopefully better depth if Eriksen stays. But to continue on the route of holding up great examples, Fergie has always been prone to a water carrier or two in his squad over the years, and actually for the biggest games he quite enjoyed sticking in someone with less flash over a player with more technical quality because it gave him the best possible chance of getting the W.

    I don't remember Ferguson ever regularly using someone as useless on the ball as Sissoko. He didn't only play registas, but he certainly made sure his entire team was capable of passing.

    True. Darren Fletcher would never put a slight curve on the ball to make a pass.

    Fletcher's a brickheap of a footballer but I'd put him in our team over Sissoko in a heartbeat.
