Quality player totally wasted in this team. If he didn't have fitness issues he'd be playing at a higher standard.
Your hands-down winner.

Yes its interesting that Drissa is always in the team or on the bench yet is unable to give full commitment over 90 minutes, yet someone with creativity and talent is deemed not to be fully committed and so isnt played.

we sadly knew about his mother passing away-i never knew about the responsibility for his young sister -thats some ask-and massive respect to him.
the other stuff maybe shows that whatever level you are at-footballers are in the spotlight.

i think most 25 year olds have done a lot worse than a shisha pipe and laughing gas .

I agree with the last sentence but why totally wasted in this team? Is that because he can only play 60-70 minutes? I think if that is an insoluble problem he would be better as a sub rather than starting

Outstanding player. I try to say if you can’t play 90 mins u shouldn’t b in the team, but with Drissa , he is our midfield . Best player ever to play for FGR, possibly?

Hope Osbourne comes up to speed quickly and play the pair together. Would like to see Simpson given a chance and Stevens and Wish more game time. Would like to see 442 solid and stable, but u know who that means dropping. Drissa is quality.

It's neither here nor there about Drissa playing for 60 minutes. Surely the question should be is why we can't replace him at that point with someone just as good?

Hopefully Izzy Osbourne will answer that question.

Puts things into perspective really, sounds like a devastating time for him and his family. For his sister to lose her mother at just 6 years old is terrible.

Glad that the club have supported him well during this, and that playing football is helping him deal with it.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
