Pienaar

Comments (23)

I see he is getting to the level we S'Effricans know he is capable of. I did mention in a previous post to give the lad time, and it seems to be paying off. Just as an aside, doesn't he remind you a tad of Arteta when he just got to GP? Had the talent, had the engine, but just had to adjust to the physicality of the PL.

he?s getting better game by game. He is a little lightweight but could be a good addition if he continues to improve and if we sign him permenantly,

He doesn?t remind of Arteta. Arteta has a lot more skill, pace and doesn?t mind the physical stuff, which he had experienced already up in Scotland before so didn?t really need to adjust much.

He reminds me more of Osman but with a little bit more skill.

Couldn’t agree more - I thought Moyes was playing a Premier L team, and a Euro team, and Steve Pienaar would suit the EUFA games. But he’s come on so quickly that he is now good for both.

People who say San Mikel is losing it don’t realise that he’s now just another superbly skillful player in our midfield, and I love to see him and Pienaar bringing out the skills and confidence in Leon and Lee. Tommy must be sitting and wondering what is going on. But what a luxury - a player like him on your bench.

Pienaar is a great talent and is certainly not afraid of getting stuck into tackles. Apart from his one moment of madness last night I think his performances have been excellent. He has provided incisive passes to feet (yes, those lumpy things at the end of the legs, not the lumpy thing on top of the shoulders) which have resulted in, well, several goals...no doubt someone will have counted.
He’s a good addition to the squad and I can’t imagine he’s anything other than a permanent fixture for the team. He may be small in stature but he’s a great player. Sign him up DM.

His pass to Anichebe for the second goal was pure one-touch, visionary class but so easy to miss in the excitement. NOW Moyes, NOW!

Dave,

I’m confused, what do you think we should do about Pienaar?

He’s a classy player and by all accounts a descent bloke as well. I’m sure we’ll sign him, hopefully in January.

Hasnt a fee been agreed if we decide to sign him which is a good idea as I am sure they would want more now.

I know we will and that is why I firmly believe our philosophy has changed. We are no longer a selling club and that, ergo, we are going places!

James,

I believe we have an option to sign him for £2.5m. But as ever, it depends on whether the player wants to sign. By all accounts Pienaar wants to stay. So away we go!

I share you optimism Dave, but at the same time keep my feet on the floor. We’re getting closer and closer, I like our squad options, but it is still very early in the season and this game against an in form Chelsea at the Bridge is going to be tough, especially coming off of a tough game on Thursday. I think we can get something from it, a bit worried about Arteta picking up a slight injury and Cahill is probably going to be a bit tired, but we can battle with any team. One thing that is in our favor for this game is Petr Cech being out and Terry out. We should challenge Cech with as many shots around the box as possible and let Cahill and Victor attack the rebounds. A draw to keep our unbeaten record going would be fantastic, but sneaking a win, if that happens then I think the sky is the limit for us.

Sign him instantly. We must not get Fernandes’d again. He’s ace and only improving.

Yeah, swap deal with Neville and Hibbert. C’mon Dortmund you’ll be getting an established England international here!!! Hehe.

I think he sees an opening quicker than any other player we have and his passing is excellent. Want him signed as soon as possible.

If he looks good now imagine him getting the ball to feet more than 15% of the time.

I don’t know if you guys know, but he was rated the best ball passer in Holland while playing for Ajax. I’ll agree with most of you guys, Moyes must sign him.
