RP should start scoring again tonight, no wind, rain or cold.
Thank god he's back.
Hopefully this means calamity Ken is consigned to the bench (or better still, the bin).
Just bought a Diet Coke in a restaurant and an image of Pereyra 37 shirt was on the side. A new step in Hornet visibility in my opinion.
So that's where he's been hiding these last few weeks ?
I assume Deeney only appears on the full fat version?
On the preliminary squad for the friendlies against Morocco and Venezuela it looks like Scaloni has dropped Pereyra. This is as the list is still provisional. This might just be the kick in the pants he needs to get more involved on the pitch in demanding the ball if he wants to make the Copa America in Brazil.
Not sure why RP stays on for the full 90 mins instead of GD, does anyone else?
Most of the team usually stay on for the full 90 minutes.
Selected surprisingly given Lamela has been omitted after his indifferent form. Scaloni has picked players in form generally (Icardi not picked because of the shenanigans at Internazionale with his wife and agent and Aguero fell out with Scaloni after the shambles in Russia last year) and is also experimenting with new goalkeepers which means a call up for Musso of Udinese.
Pereyra will probably play a bit part in one of the two matches against either Venezuela or Morocco. Penaranda and Amrabat will also feature.
Sebastian Beccacece who is currently coaching Defence & Justice and doing a wonderful job with a young team should be on Pozzo's list of future managers. A very shrewd tactician and develops young players playing hard nosed but attractive attacking football.
Fell out with Sampaoli before the World Cup after his player selections were ignored along with his advice. Turned out well for another bald fraud.
Bringing on Gray for 2 up top is working an absolute treat!
Wahey, Pereyra is back!
I know this isn't Pereyra's first Argentina selection of the season, but I still have to pinch myself when I see an actual, current Watford player alongside the world's elite like Dybala and GOAT himself (de Paul and Paredes aren't bad either).
If only he could try and convince a couple of 'em to come here
A great picture but GOAT?
I think there are a few others that sit above LM,in my opinion at least.
Equal best in this era I would agree.
Shame Bobby is masking Fessi behind him.
I remember in the summer we were linked with an Argentine international or two but weren't convinced!
(Obviously not Messi lol, but still, we've come a long way!)
We didn't manage to land Sala
I bet they all rip the piss out of him for playing for us.
He is a bit head down/pensive in the above.
It’s like he’s just said Hertfordshire & Messi has had one of those snort/vomit in mouth reactions.
Rough with the smooth.
Training at Real Madrid's sporting complex (second from left) in preparation for the two matches against Venezuela and Morocco. Pereyra is possibly going to play just the one match on the left hand side of midfield with Lo Celso and Paredes or Marcone. Not far for him to travel. All the Argentine players know each other well and keep in touch being far away from home. The same applies to Brazilians and Colombians and the like. As Roberto has made much mention of he is in touch on a regular basis with Foyth, Aguero for instance and he will be well aware of Montiel and Palacios.
Let’s hope the weather is good where they are playing else he ll be subbed off for anonymity.
Explains his recent dip in form - he's been running for two!
Ahhh it’s tenny weeny.
Blimey! He’s been working as a surgeon on the side!
Kid Pereyra on Gino's radar?
Our worst player since January. Sell.
Goodbye Roberto. Thanks for the good goals you scored in a couple of games.
Enjoy Torino or whatever.
I think you're being generous.
Pass to AG in Palace cup game aside,I don' think he's been productive since November.
Shame but I expect he's gone.
Who in the right mind would buy this ****-haired nob end? We're stuck with him
I suspect he wants to bring up the bambino in a Latin culture.
He really hasn’t supported Javi for the last 6 months.
Walter Mazzarri, that's who
I will not be sorry to see RP go, and quite frankly I will be quite happy to see AD join him hopefully for copious amounts of cash. IMO that is the best thing those two can do for us, raise some cash so we can reinvest it in more consistent players.
Pereyra is far to inconsistent, even though he is brilliant at times.
As for Doucoure IMO although he wins the ball a lot, he also gives it away again equally as much with his bad passing.
I only hope that the world wide showcase of the FA Cup Final does not enlighten to many people to the fact that their alleged brilliance as players are somewhat over hyped, as that could knock several million off what they are perceived to be worth.
Seems like he has been called up by Argentina for the Copa America despite the poor form..
I doubt that he will go simply because his form and confidence are lacking. I think he needs one more player around him (2 would be better) who are on the same one-touch-and move level. That could be an overlapping left back, a CF or a midfielder. His interplay with blokes like Deulofeu when they are near each other is outstanding. He's never going to be a classic put-your-shoulder-down-hook the RB-and-get-into-the box kind of player.
