The guy is 37 and still captaining Sparta Prague in Europe! I didn't watch the game but Liverpool didn't score and Repka, predictably picked up yet another booking!
It will be interesting to see how he copes at Anfield - presuming he isn't suspended! He was never the brightest of footballers - he struggled to speak English years after joining - and his disciplinary record made Julian Dicks look like a Lineker type, but the guy always had a huge heart; which, Parker apart, our current team lacks terribly.
We desperately need another Repka, a mean bastard at the back who intimidates the opposition players. Tomkins is polished but lacks the rough edge; Upson allows opposition players to impose themselves on him rather than the other way around; Gabbidon is just shite; Reid plays like a junior intimidated by the seniors; Jacobsen is short and looks like he could work in a library; Bridge wouldn't even thump Terry after he shafted his missus; and Da Costa only hits women - allegedly.
How this team needs a Tomas Repka. Or, better still, an Alvin Martin or Billy Bonds!
