Seriously? now THAT is interesting. To be honest that is the first time I watched him closely and I was shocked when the commentator said he was rumoured to go to a big French club last season (I think I even heard him say "PSG" but I am questioning myself after what I saw). Maybe I am not giving him credit but he did not appear to have the first touch or technical ability of a PSG target.

Anyone watch Edgar play? How was his preformance in the loss?
Thanks to j.i.m. who tipped us off about Maximir Luburic starting for Lithuanian club Atlantas yesterday in their 2-0 loss to Sandro Grande's old club Suduva: http://www.soccerway.com/matches/201...antas/1267310/
His first professional start was a 2-1 win over fourth placed Kruoja on Saturday: http://www.soccerway.com/matches/201...uojis/1267308/
Wow, that's very interesting. I thought his influence on the game was over-dribbling, turning the ball over at poor moments and taking some lifeless efforts. Though, what do I know!?

The guy can be inconsistent but from what I've seen of him he has some really top notch skills, lots of tricks and can score goals from just about anywhere. If hes in good shape, I think the guy can be a very good player, he was linked with PSG but that was a bit before they blew up and started buying world class talent.
I think hes similar to Hoilett in a lot of ways, although Hoilett is much more athletic, both have lots of skill on the ball and can score wonder goals. I think he and Hoilett can cause some real havoc for opposing defenses, like Hoilett he has the ability to turn a game in an instance and hopefully they can learn to play together and feed of each other, probably will take a while and both of them are pretty bad defensively and can drift out of games and be inconsistent. I think this year or in the next couple years if both of these players can grow and become more consistent/mind their defensive responsibilities they both have the potential to be very good premier league players.
Wow are you guys STILL talking about Tarrabt and Nasri in the Canadians abroad thread?
Europa League Qualifiers
Klukowski was finally in the squad, but stayed on the bench for APOEL as they drew 1-1 away to Azerbaijan club Neftci Baku in a Europa League Qualifier. Cyprian winger/back Nektarios Alexandrou is in LB at the moment.
AIK hosted CSKA Moscow in their qualifier and lost 1-0. Stama backed up Turina as usual.
PSV won 5-0 away to Zeta. Hutch played 90 at RB again.
Josh Simpson's Young Boys beat 10-man Midtjylland 3-0.

Eintracht has signed one more striker, Chinese international Chengdong Zhang. I am hardly an expert on him, but according to the ever unreliable transfermarkt he plays as striker or right winger.
Peters exits Portman Road
Jaime Peters has left Ipswich by mutual consent having struggled for first-team action over the past 12 months.
Jaime Peters: Moving on
The versatile right-back, a Canada international, joined Town in 2005 and made a total of 114 appearances, but only one of those came last season under manager Paul Jewell and he spent two months on loan at Bournemouth.
"Jaime is a terrific lad but it's not really worked out for him here since I've been here," Jewell said.
"We have a lot of options in the wide areas and he's not had a look in at first-team level, so it's best if he moves on because the lad needs to be playing football.
"We wish him every success and I'm sure he will get fixed up with another club."
Peters, 25, had one year remaining on his Ipswich contract.
He said: "I have some good memories from my time at the club and always enjoyed a good relationship with the supporters but it's important at this stage of my career that I'm playing football so it's best if I move on."
