Robert Pires on his way

Is he still any good?

Yes you got so many injuries, but wingers are one thing you do have (Ashley Young, Downing and Albrighton). Now I know some of them can play in the centre but I just hope this won't mean that Albrighton will play less. He's been your man of the season to be honest.

Young's been a bit disappointing while some of the others have been non existent.

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

Pires can play in the centre too, he's pretty versatile which is probably why Villa would want him I reckon.

he's old and in decline. hence he's perfect for the EPL along with the zendens(with all due respect to a former blaugrana ) and what not

He's been keeping in shape with our lot, I think he'd be a useful squad player for the remainder.

Albrighton deserves more than being replaced by an old Pires.

He could be useful as a squad player. Maybe.

It's a gamble, but a worthwhile one. It's not like there is any transfer fee involved.

The average age of a foriegn player in the premiership is probably around the 24 mark.
