LJJ - Have you seen John Guidetti play at all this year for Feyenoord? If so, what do you think of him?
GREAt player. Works his ass off, can score from multiple angles, knows where to cut at the right time and will lead a team. Some minuses: He can get carried away a bit. When you get him out of his comfort zone his passion can make him lose control. He's been close to getting booking by the ref for protesting or being a bit too out of line when things don't go his way. Also his passion can blind him in other ways: he got a second yellow after taking his shirt off to celebrate his goal somewhere midway the season and he was suspended for the next game against PSV, quite a big game. After that he caught a virus, which brings me to another weakness: It seems he's now recovering from some bacterial infection, which was quite a scare, and eralier on this season he had some trouble staying healthy: maybe it's youth or he doesnt take care of himself well enough. Don't know but he missed a game on several occasions with the flu.
Absolute positive influence on a team, greta locker room precense and absolute Fan favorite. Guidetti, on his way to the stadium, ran into a bunch of fans on their way with public transport, Guidetti got out of his car and joined the mob:
I'm sad he wont be back next season, but he was a big factor in Omar Elabdeloaui coming over from City next season on loan.
Guidetti is far from the absolute top, but he has all the work ethic and a good dose of talent. Hard to compare him to any player...but you'll love to have him on your team and hate to play against him.
