According to the newspapers, The gentleman in question is a certain "Amir Karic" who now plies his trade at Maribor , a team that play in the Slovenian League.

I noticed that too. And worst of all, Clive Tylsley seemed to be hyping him up as some new talent. Did he not do his homework??

Mr Karic might be new to the Slovenian side but based on performances at our club, use of the word "Talent" might be a tad over complimentary !

That said, the chappie might have renewed vigour and vim following his move back to his home country and perhaps he is performing with far greater aplomb than he was in England.

I have to admit that I did NOT witness the game so I cannot comment on the performance of Mr Karic.

He was the worst player I've ever seen.

Foreign player with poor grip of the language into struggling team does not happiness make.

Amir Karic is a decent player who may well shine on the World Stage.

shine is far too strong a word:o . He'll do ok but the slovenian side is unlikely to make it past the group stage

Bit odd seeing old Orson again. I was under the impression he'd quit football after failing to make the grade at Selhurst. :D

Whilst Mr Karic couldn't get into the Ipswich side, and was indeed awful for Palace, we should remember that he made a major impact on Euro 2000 and was seen a great signing for Ipswich. Guess he just doesn't travel well!

I think he may still be an Ipswich (reserve) player. "World Football" magazine says he's only on loan at Maribor (where Ipswich got him from), and only played 7 games this season.

We have to remember that Smith was the manager at the time. It might have been different if he was playing under Bruce (not Francis though).

By the way, if we need a right back we should buy that Paraguayan, Cheeky Arce!

Wasnt he also coming back from injury as well? I think there's a curse on left-backs here. Deano couldnt do anything right and Amsalem, Karic were the worst players ever.. Hermann was sold for peanuts and has since garnered multimillion transfers..

True. He was very good indeed at Euro 2000. I didn't think he disgraced himself the other day, either, though he has slowed and grown a fair bit in two years!

It is the Amir we had and he played very well in Euro 2000 as did the whole Slovenian team. He is a good player with an amazing left foot, speed etc who does not suit the English league and raises his game when playing on the international stage considerably like all his countrymen and Irish players!

He looked very good in warm ups for Palace then we kicked off! He's one of those good players who only likes playing in his country but a missed talent indeed

I did wonder when I saw his name - but couldn't remember wether it was him or not.

Glad someone else pointed it out!!

Only saw the last ten minutes of the Slovenia South Africa game, and he made a fantastic last ditch tackle and had a superb shot whistle just over the bar. Whats going on there then???

For some reason Eastern Europeans doesn't seem to do very well in English football.
