if we could have him back for lets say 8m would anyone have him?
electric pace, would be great alongside carroll.
just like shearer and bellers
but obviously not as good.

He was fucking awful. I wouldn't touch the fucker with a bargepole. And he couldn't wait to get away either. Fuck him.

He hasn't got a fucking clue, doesn't understand the game and flatters to deceive.

Never again.

For £8mil and £40k tops a week then yes I would give him another bash.

But then again he did fuck off immediately, had no interest in taking us back up.

Crap control, no idea of positioning or link up play, ran about like a headless chicken, no vision, went missing in many games, missed easy chances, crap on one on ones, scored some spectacular goals. I can do all that apart from the goals bit.

he kept us up the first year he was here, i still say hes the best striker weve had since bellers and shearer. top player, who went to a team playing champs league footy. showing his pedegree. he went missing in games sure, and missed a few easy chances, but all top strikers arent perfect.

Couldn't trap a bag of cement, scored some cracking goals mind. He was a scorer of great goals rather than a great goalscorer.

If we had him now he'd be top scorer in this league and we would have been promoted weeks ago but would i fuck have him back he wasnt exactly a prolific goalscorer.

No. Average striker, (missed more than he hit) bit of pace, good somersault, don't miss him. Not worth the money.

just cos you say it doesn't make it true.........I'd say this little video proves just about everything you've said about him wrong



[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7djfyJGsrs[/ame]




he was eratic and frustrating as fuck at times but I'd say he was as much a victim of a shit setup and poor management as any other player we haven't had the best out of

I'm not saying I would have him back but I reckon it will be a long, long time until I see another striker in a black and white shirt thats gets me out of my seat like he did

what I am saying is that Martins was just another player that was 'labelled'........I've lost count of the amount of times that I've heard the 'he couldn't trap a bag of cement' line


the video I put up was him playing in a black and white shirt....it's not what he did before he came here....it's what he did for us.....as you can see his control is nowhere near as bad as made out and was fuckin tremendous at times....


all about opinions but if we had someone like Martins playing with a winger like Routledge as appose to Milner we would be seeing a totally different player

It's all about pieces of the jigsaw but Martins was nowhere near as bad a player technically as some like to make out
