Do you mean SOCRATES, philosopher from Athens?
:roll:

I knew someone would be sad enough to go and Google how it was spelled. I'm glad it was you! Yes technically spelled differently IN ENGLISH but pronounced exactly the same, and modern Greek writing is not really comparable to Ancient Greek writing at all so your point is invalid :lol:

You're talking shite :wink:
Some issues here by the look of it :D

Yep! I also see dead people :worried:

Love him but silly unnecessary fouls on the halfway line let him down and I don’t know how many cards he’s got so far but no doubt he’ll be due a suspension soon.

I don't mind him doing silly fouls on the halfway line, as long as he does not do them near our penalty area. sometimes even silly little fouls that don't pick up cards, breaks up thier flow, winds up the other players causing them to lash out etc... he adds that niggle / bastardness that we have missed.

I like him because he is an old school style no nonsense defender without the aspiration to be a technical footballer. And he likes a scrap and fears no one. And he is way better than Mustafalaugh.

But he is a tad too much into wrestling the oppo strikers and has been lucky not to concede a few pennos. I know Spit The Scouse got away with wrestling and jersey pulling for his entire career but I don't think Sokratis will get the same "consideration" from the cheating incapable cùnts that are referees for much longer. :|

Unfortunately I have this horrible feeling that he might cost us a major final or other huge game because he went hands on once too often and gave away a silly penno. :|

Don't take this as a negative but I really don't think that is going to be too much of an issue either this season or next :lol:

We just can’t catch a fucking break at the back.

Would be a hard enough job to marshal this lot without the constant injuries.

Feel free to merge this thread I just wanted to say how much I love this bloke!!!

No bullshit social media accounts.

Proper old school defender who's a leader and won't take any shit from the opponents.

Puts his body on the line and is determined as ever.

He's been an immense signing.

SPARTAN.

:barscarf:

The historical Sokratis was actually Athenian :proudtosay:
Yep, I had a picture of him playing tennis, scratching his bum, on my wall.
:lol: :lol: :lol:

For some reason i couldn't find a thread dedicated to everyone's favourite defender, if there is my apologies feel free to merge Mods.

Any way there is a lovely little montage of Sokratis' defending for us on the Arsenal facebook feed today which should cheer all you miserable Barstewards up no end, unfortunately because i'm a complete linking mong i'm not able to work out how to link from FB, is there any of you tech savvy fuckers who can for the sake of peoples 'Valentines Day' blues? :barscarf: :barscarf:

Can't remember any defender for years who took so much delight in making tackles :D

Honestly even if this guy had only one leg I'd play him ahead of Mustafalaugh in any position.
