The Godlike Genius of Charlie Mulgrew

Recommended Posts

Yes, undoubtedly.

Not sure it is. In some ways it is more physical and the refs are shocking. What's giving King Charlie the advantage is his ability to read the game,his experience and his technique

He’s that good that I just want to kiss him.

Many great favourites over the years and he is up there with them. He is one player that I will be genuinely gutted when he does eventually leave.

We’re lucky to have him but I think he’ll be around for a while. Always regarded as a top player but his injuries just about finished him off. I doubt anyone would gamble on him now as he’s over 30 so we should be able to enjoy him for another couple of years, fitness allowing. Looks comfortable at international level as well. Great player.

My thoughts too about him sticking around particularly if he’s happy living in Wrea Green and his kids are at school there and settled. Mind you the contributors on that Ribble FM show mentioned on another thread think he will only be good for another season should we get promoted!

He seems very happy in any interviews i see him in. Seems settled and you can tell that he probably sees us as his last adventure. Excellent captain (especially compared to Lowe) and Downing has basically admitted that his own form is down to Mulgrew and learning from him.

Seems to be a top guy. A centre back with the technique and finess of a top quality centre-midfielder.

So even "Gods" make mistakes. Just shows going too far with hubris tends to come back and bite you on the derriere.

Or it's just a tongue-in-cheek homage to a much-loved player. Take your pick.

It's an absolute delight to watch this lad in our colours week in and week out.

Every time he steps up for a free-kick (in a shooting position), I feel like he's going to slot it.

Wonderful player.

Good captain as well, never once heard Lowe shout on the pitch but can constantly hear Mulgrew organising things  and shouting from my seat in the JW lower 'HYEA HYEA' 

For Portsmouth game I was late and asked steward to let me in JWL-DE. Close to pitch-side as anyone that day I witnessed Mulgrew's game, eyes everywhere commanding his team both voice and gesture.

Genius! We've got Mulgrew!

Great player, great captain, makes the odd mistake but who doesn't, Dack and Smallwood have been very good but Charlie's our best for me.

Only bad thing about him is that he occasionally inspires Rangers/Celtic crap on a Rovers board, it appears sometimes some members can't forget their other allegiances.

One of his early games I remember the look he gave Lowe when he panicked one out of play.....with Charlie captain I think we might have stayed up

Rarely and harmless stuff, I would say

Still the best ever fanzine headline, when Mo Johnson signed for Rangers.

When Bergkamp signed a new contract at Arsenal there was 'Wenger's Wonga Makes Bergy Linger Longer' and when ICT beat the hoops 'Super Cally go ballistic, Celtic are atrocious'. The only two good things The S*n ever did.

Charlie off at half time for Scotland, anyone know if it's an injury or not?

Read that they only flew to Israel last night. 5 hour flight, then a two hour coach journey.

Doesn’t seem the best preparation to play a game in your best condition...

Hopefully it's nothing major, but hamstring sounds ominous 

FFS. Williams can do a job in centre half but if one of him and Lenihan were to get injured too we’d be F**ked. Rodwell fancies himself as a centre back but he’s barely played there, Downing not good enough for the championship either and if anyone says Nyambe can play centre back (Chaddy) I will top myself.
