Lloyd Sam

Is it payback time tonight from one of our ex-players who always seemed to get a fair amount of stick when he played for us. Always liked him as a player but seemed to be in a minority.

My nightmare is him knocking in a scrappy winner via a deflection in the 93rd minute.

  • Christ forgot he'd signed for them...

    He came on in the 88th min for his first Wimbledon appearance against Scunthorpe

    Be good if he were to come on when we're winning 3-0 but not if its 0-0
  • The only decent attacking player in a pretty poor team playing bad football. Didn’t help our game plan was “either hoof it to burton or just give it to Sam”. So teams quickly worked it out and isolated him.
  • Did not realise he played for us 119 times (if wiki is correct). Always liked him
  • Liked him. Lots of skill but no football brain imho

    This. He used to drive me potty. He would beat a man, using tricky feet. He would then go back, and beat the same man again. Then go back a third time, and lose it...

    Sounds like the football under Robinson, just replace Burton for Magennis and Sam for Holmes.

    132 according to transfermarkt

    Yes, his decision making wasn't the best. He did have talent though, you'd have hoped (though not for tonight obviously) that his decision making would improve with experience
  • If he starts then there is no way he will make it to the 93rd minute. I always referred to him as 60 minute Sam as that was when he always got pulled

  • He did love a stepover.
  • Decent player in a poor team. Can't see him being too effective these days (cue a late winner)
  • Liked him, but he was frustrating. If he starts ghosting past our FB I will have the hump; because he never did that while he was here!
    It was more like give and go.
  • never rated him

    cue him getting the winner

    Or Joe Pigott.
  • H matured as a footballer during his time in the states, reckon he'll be a decent signing for them
  • I always thought he had a limited ‘ football brain”. He beat people did not know what to do next. Defenders got time to get back, he beat them again but no end product.

    more Games than Yann.....

    That's right. Time has moved on and he's gained a lot of experience at a decent level.
    People are remembering his time with us and judging him accordingly.

    At 33 he might not be quite so quick, but he might be a better footballer.

    That same tactic worked so many times!

    No.
    You know that for sure, do you Dazzler? :smile:


  • :lol: If Parkinson thought that the SPL was equivalent to League 1... I'd expect him to say the MLS is probably about the same.

    Having watched a few MLS games I'd say it's like a less rough league 1 or 2, where players are given plenty of space.
  • Yikes, if asked I would have said he probably played about 30-times, can’t believe it was 100+
    So much of those years I’ve just blotted out....
  • Didn't he play under Les Reed in the prem or am I making that up?
  • I always thought he had a limited ‘ football brain”. He beat people did not know what to do next. Defenders got time to get back, he beat them again but no end product.

    True but you could probably say that about most wingers.
  • Didn't he play under Les Reed in the prem or am I making that up?

    4 league games under Reed.
    Also played in the Wycombe cup game
  • I heard BWP say something interesting about MLS the other week. He said NYRB was the first time he was actually coached at a club since leaving City. He claimed that in England the focus was always on promotion - getting out of the league you’re in, or avoiding relegation. Yet in MLS they spend more time on individual coaching and he believed it was the coaching he received at NYRB that made him so successful there.

    .
  • Because BWP went to play in a league where he had more time and was the key focus of the NYRB's attack.

    They may have focused on coaching him but it was also a bit like Renford Rejects - Get the ball to the italians...
