Okay lads i surrender no way park is worth that kind of money even if he came from kryptonCarrick is worth the money payed for him.
Hargreaves has the quality to be worth the money we payed for him.
Not a chance on Earth Park is worth anything over £10m, regardless if he's English. Ashley Young is twice the player he is, and Villa would bite your hand off for £20m.
I didn't mean it as a direct comparison. I just couldn't find an English player like Park or Kuyt.How is Heskey anything like Kuyt or Park
He doesn't run around chasing the ball all game, and his workrate isn't his main strength. Heskey doesn't play for his workrate.
I think you are all a bit harsh on park , he is a lot better than you lot are making out.No way! Downing can at least cross the ball.
Agree, Downing's a **** and only looks good in a very poor Boro side.I think you are all a bit harsh on park , he is a lot better than you lot are making out.
by the time this thread is over you will have him down as a championship player , leave the lad alone , i would not swap him for downing no way
Why does that mean he's a better player?Hmmmm...easy said, atleast park gets to play for Man utd! :whistling:
Where did i say he's a better player??Why does that mean he's a better player?
Fair enough.Where did i say he's a better player??
All i said is he reminded me of Downing if he was an english player because as much as they are good, they just arent good enough but yet, park being park, he has the advantage of playing for man utd.
Actually incorrect. I read somewhere that Gerrard is the best player to have played in every position for his club.In terms of versatility yes..
I'm not talking about his value, as I too believe that English players are inflated.i really believe that if park was English he would be worth double his value at the moment id rate him at maybe about 5 million so if he was English id rate him at 10 million i think its almost a fact that(most) English players are over rated for me an example of this would be i believe that Vidic makes Rio look like a better player as he looks kind of shaky when playing with Evans but when Vida plays with Evans were more solid! i also think that Carvalho makes John Terry look a better player too!
so for me English Park>S.Koren Park
TBH i don't think if he came through our ranks here he would have made it as i don't think he would have been good enough to come through as we don't produce that many workers IMO! but i believe say he came through boro's youth academy i think we wouldn't have went for him as i think it was on the back of psv's impressive champions league run that we bought him and we wouldn't have got to see him in that light!I'm not talking about his value, as I too believe that English players are inflated.
The point I was making is, is that if he was an English headless chicken, would he be near the team or would he been transferred (let's consider him being a youth team product)? I think a major reason why he is part of the squad is because of his marketing puposes in Asia.
(I'm not saying he's shit and deserves to get rid, because he is very consistent and is an honest player and puts in a good shift when needed)
