Allardyce: Nene isn’t match fit!

JackSam Allardyce claims that new signing Nene won’t be fit for action until the Crystal Palace game on February 28 – the earliest!

Despite co chairman David Gold tweeting the Brazilian could be on the bench tomorrow the manager has made it clear that can’t be the case.

Speaking in his morning press conference the manager said: “He won’t be available to play because he isn’t match fit yet.

“He’s a naturally fit player and he’s not far away, I think ten days to two weeks before he’s ready. We’ll monitor his progress, he could be ready for the Crystal Palace game, we’ll have to wait and see.

“It’s nice to have him here with the CV he’s got and we’re looking forward to working to with him.”

When asked if he thought the 33 year old will have an important role to play he said:  ” I think so definitely.

“We’ve lost our goal scoring touch at the moment and we’ve struggled to put our chances in the back of the net. We had been fluent in that area at the start of the season.

Obviously that is key to any team doing well and I think that is why we have drawn some games we should have won.

“Hopefully we find that touch on Sunday, against Tottenham our big rivals in a big London derby. It’s a massive game for us and hopefully we do as well as we did there last season.”

  1. ahahahhaha… BFS words are absolutely normal… QED… Nene is not a cyborg as Nolaninho and so obviously it’s better he sits on the bench… We should clone Nolan…

  2. Yes Sam we had been fluent in that area earlier in the season.I wonder why the goals dried up.Any ideas why they dried up Mr.Sophistacted? The change of playing style you implemented when your pets came back maybe!.

  3. Is incredible to believe this guy is the 13th highest paid manager in the world.Mr.Bean would understand why the goals dried up better than this man.

    • He’s the 13th highest paid manager because he’s brain is sophisticated. He’s has got the “shining”, he can see beyond the commond minds… He’s like Neo in Matrix… He’s the chosen one.

  4. Allardyce would be the last person to judge who is fit when Nolan gets regular game time.It’s a wonder the players haven’t revolted against his stupid team selections week in and week out.
