Super Stelios

Recommended Posts


Its tremendous having a big character at the club. There are too few genuine characters in fitba these days.

Stelios isn't just a character, though, he's also a very good player, and, with the input of our coaching staff, I reckon he will only improve.

Great guy.

He was a class above on Saturday throughout the full game. Brilliant to watch him on the ball. Way he took his goal and his celebration were a joy to watch. He'll be a big player for us this season. Will be interesting to see what Jack Ross does when Eckersley is properly back.

Super Stelios has got to play every week. I would have him ahead of Eck but if Eck is playing then SS has to move one up and play wide left. The guy has goals in him as well as speed and the ability to beat a man. And so composed in the box - better than many strikers.

Love Stelios and on Saturday he did everything right, defensively he was sound, going forward he is immense, winding up the opposition he did so well one of them got sent off and his rallying of the support after he scored you could see it meant something to him.

Was so happy when he signed on again and hope he is with us for some time yet after this season

He's terrific. Jack will have a decision to make when Eck is match fit, but Stelios must play somewhere. Fans love him, opposition fans hate him - top man.

Reminds me of young Charlie Adam, and a totally free role......

He's literally half the guy Adam was

Can he not play at right back as well? Irvine has been a bit ropey at times this season and this would give us another option


Irvine had a poor game playing left back a few weeks ago.

Other than one early slip he had a great game against Falkirk and was one of our best players!

Like the rest of our defence, he was woeful for the first fifteen/ twenty minutes or so, and offered little or no resistance to their wide players.

However, as you say, he had a great game after that.

I really don't think Stelios can be dropped for Eckersley, based on his performances and overall contribution to our team so far.

Our main strength, is going forward. That is somewhat diminished if you take Stelios out of the team. He's a potent goal threat too.

If JR puts in Eckersley at LB, I'd play Stelios at RB in place of Irvine, simply for the reasons I mentioned previously.

If he listens to the so called experts :lol: on here regarding Team selection and tactics then we better start preparing for League One in 2018/19.

Only one change needed and Jack will soon suss that we need a proper goalkeeper. 

Ross's only blunder so far.

It looked like he was more in favour of Eckersley last season.

Can he play who he wants or buckle under pressure from the support?

I'm sure he already has.

When Eckersley was fit he played him last year, when a fair proportion of fans wanted Stelios on the park.

I like Eckersley as a player and feel that he's one of the best LB's in the league. He's generally solid and dependable.

Difficult decision, but it's great to have strength in depth at the back.
