(25) Jose Holebas

Discussion in 'The Team Bus' started by The Voice of Reason, Jan 31, 2017.

  1. There is a great article on the official club site about him, and it pretty much backs up my thoughts that the guy's apparent sullen attitude is down to his frustations with how the team and many of his team mates are playing.

    IMO he is probably one of our more passionate players and he always gives his all for the team, I like him.

    Unfortunately not, I think he's just a bit of ***

    He's a bell with a rancid attitude who thinks he is too good for Watford and his team mates.

    If I showed my passion and determination in my job the way he does I'd be unemployable. Why would anyone think moaning at other players - even when we win games, getting booked when the team is losing and not tracking back if a team mate passes poorly to him is anything other than ****e attitude.

    I've seen him moan at a player when his own pass was wildly inaccurate.

    Passion & berating players is OK once in a while to give them a kick up the back side but when it is every 5 mins then it gets trying very quickly. Mind you on current performances I don't think I would be any different myself.
    Football is a team sport and for some reason he doesn't appear to be part of the team. It's a damn shame becasue there's a bloody good footballer in there somewhere who could be a game changer for us.

    he thinks he's the best player in the team, and coming from a fancy italian team didnt help. Unfortunately he's not quite as good as he thinks he is, so moaning at others when you yourself are making mistakes doesnt endear you to people.

    That being said, he's just about the only player in the squad who shows passion and a genuine will to win and who quite clearly hates losing, so for that reason he's probably my favourite player among our current crop. Which says more about the rest of them than him to be honest.

    I have found that the fans who hate him are generally those who have never actually played football to a high standard, so cant understand his frustration

    I like him and his attitude. We could have done with a bit of it on Sunday ...

    Him strolling off really slowly when he got substituted against Boro pretty much summed him up. It was 0-0 and we were really putting the pressure on them, and instead of sprinting off he had a sulk and took ages. Even when the fans screamed at him to hurry up he wouldn't.

    If he was really a team player he would have sprinted off for the sake of the team.

    I think he's a helmet. Having passion is one thing but sulking when you don't get what you want is pathetic. Decent player but not one I would be bothered about if he left in the summer

    Oh yes. There was that. Not good ...

    I like his desire to win but at times, I'm not sure he's any more happy to be here now than when he first refused to even believe Roma had sold him to us. I think he believes he is a level above us when most of the time, he looks just as poor as the rest of the team. I accept he's been one of our better players but that really isn't saying much this season.

    Another ageing, average player in an average team that I would be looking at replacing in the summer.

    IMO we should be looking at spending some of the Ighalo money - assuming it happens - on Robertson (Hull) or Robbie Brady today. We lack numbers down the left.

    Although your usual activity on the forum is rather annoying, I have to agree with you here. What you say makes a lot of sense.

    One thing I can say of Holebas is that he is consistent. Out of 10 you are never getting below a 6 and he will often hit a 7 or 8. Managers always value a player they know how he will perform.

    At the end of the day, he has been a top professional with not the easiest start to his career and played at some big clubs in big games. I think teams around us in the league would kill for a player like him... Palace just spent £14m on one

    Agree Robertson at Hull would be a great buy. Was possibly the highlight of the worst game of football I have ever seen at Easter Road. But we have snoozed. Hes going to Burnley for 10m

    He's definitely a complete **** but I don't have to speak to him. Does a job for us and probably the best left back we've ever had.

    I have an awful memory but name better. (I know it's absolutely inevitable you'll name better)

    You know what, I am struggling to think of many. I just assume there was better.

    Paul Robinson springs to mind though. Maybe not technically as good but in his prime he was very good for us, and of course a fan favourite

    He is the most one-footed player I have ever seen. Looks like he'd spontaneously combust if the ball touched his right foot.

  21. Apart from a cracking shot tipped round the post v Bournemouth of course.

    Is Holebas is Misunderstood?

    World-class irony
     
  23. Well, is he is or is he ain't?

    Wilf? I also loved Peter Kennedy but agree he isn't as good as Holebas.

    Wilf Rostron! I'll give you that one. Kennedy I certainly won't.

    Lee Sinnot?!
    I've got a mate who went out with a girl that looked like Lee Sinnot. She didn't have much of a throw though which was disappointing
     
    Happy bunny and wimbornet like this.

    He is a moaning minnie at times and could probably start a fight in an empty house,never mind room but I can't help but like him.

    I'll ask him on Saturday

    Poor girl, I hope he didn't. Would be funny though.

    He's hardly misunderstood. He ably conveys what a perlonker he is. He can probably do so in four different languages.
