I think that is correct, it slows the play down, but it amazes me that any footballer that trains constantly and has since they were early teens isn't two footed.

Im not sure what games you are watching last season but his crosses are awful 9 times out of ten and he may track back but is forever jumping into challenges and getting skint. I like him as a player but when he doesnt play it makes no negative difference and that says a lot.

Every single one of them, to answer your question.

I happen to agree with you...things are working at the moment so I wouldn't change much. I just felt like defending him because his end product/tracking back are better than you've suggested in my opinion.

Very interesting read and to find out his experiences. It also shows at the end how Palace can be right for a player. One thing though, we all thought it was Sammy Lee who got into androsís head when he was so bad in his first half of a season under Pardew. But it was a psychologist, unless it was both. Possibly.

Those scvm companies should be ashamed of themselves and I always shake my head when I hear or see an ex pro on their adverts.

I see this regularly in blokes who I work with where the effects of past hurt can manifest in addictive behaviour as a form of medication: gamboling, alcohol, drugs, p***.graphy or sex addiction. It is a brave thing to share for anyone and brilliant that Andros has given word to his burdens. Hopefully it will help others.

What may be really beneficial to Palace is that talking about this sort of thing breeds an openness and an atmosphere of vulnerability that could have great knock on effects for his teammates.

 


So I manage a Workshop which provides a safe learning environment for blokes struggling with PTSD and other mental health issues. Being a Palace fan isn't listed yet.

Really interesting and honest read (enjoyed this little bit of anti-bulls***: 'You know, I always hate it when someone is writing a story about an athlete who has lost someone close to them, and they make it seem like the death of that person is what fueled their success. Losing my brother didnít make me work harder. It didnít make me score more goals. It was just pain and misery, period. Thatís all it was.')

Good on you Andros. Very interesting and honest read. I imagine he's quite a good mentor to some of the academy players. Seen a few comments about him and Brandon Pierrick recently.

Remember when we were all slating his woeful performances that first half a season? Looking now it makes more sense with how bad he was. We may as well have had Calvin Andrew or a child on the right wing.

Never been in a nightclub? Blimey - you should have been at palace in the 90's - you would have never been out of the Blue Orchid!
And as for Roy Keane... you know Roy, during the week you are an abolute c**t and come Saturday your an even biugger c**t
Andros is a proper decent player - and we have quite a few of them in the squad. Kelly, Ward, Jordan the shorts, Luka, Wayne, etc . Good lads.

 


Following Palace since 25 Feb 1978
