Moussa Diarra

Post by samcol1115 » Tue May 17, 2022 10:53 am

Moussa Diarra has posted a picture on his instagram story from the game this sunday and captioned it “last dance”. May be the end of Diarras time at Woking which is sad as he is one player i thought would have been top of the list to retain this season

Yes he said he is leaving. Not surprising considering he’s not Sarll’s player and is getting on a bit. Wish him all the best

in the bracket of 'if we keep him, good, if we dont, oh well' for me

Inih and Ince are above him in the 'must keep' bracket

good servant, but time to move on

Inih Ince and roles are for sure 3 players we need to keep for next season

If we can keep 2 of them thats a good start. All 3 would be great

Ince, absolutely, not the other two.

If we are to progress we need a top class striker, not a bang average one that has a few good moments a year.
Looking forward to see everyone again at Kingfield, soon.
Some interesting conversations will be had.

I always liked Diarra - over the seasons he had some great games for us, and without his goal against Wealdstone when it looked like we'd given up, we wouldn't have got promoted that season. But he was an integral element of Dowseball, and we need to move on from that.

I'll be sad to see him go, but from what DS has said/implied about high-tempo pressing game, Mouss is the opposite of that, bless him.

Could see him going to a side between 12-18th and being an important player, or maybe a step back below. Best of luck to him.

I would imagine we'll be wanting some pace in the centre of our defence. We had none this season

No matter what you think of Moussa, no doubt he gave 100% when on the pitch. Whether up to our standard or not, that’s what he gave and I wish him the best of luck wherever he goes in the future.

Gave 100% and provided good service over a couple of spells but its time to move on, wish him luck wherever he ends up

Difficult to dislike Moussa isn’t it? Unassuming guy who always gave his best and he was the biggest player I’ve even seen at Woking.

Not just the header v Wealdstone but also the head on a stick (but no neck) defending was perfect for the final against Welling’s hoofball.

He’ll end up at Dorking would be my guess.

Ah I remember him from FGR/Aldershot - him playing for Woking was slightly before my time following though.

Think Moussa earned 'cult hero' status for a few reasons, most of them pointed out above but when a good bloke, who scored some big goals, performed in some big games and is a bit of a novelty (very tall, worked on a market stall, etc!) all come together it works.

I think it's quite clear he won't go to a team in the top half of this league (people saying Aldershot, Dorking, etc could be correct) and that speaks for itself. If we want to be in the top half and challenging we shouldn't be signing/re-signing a load of players that wouldn't be touched by sides up there.

Good luck to him! I am sure he will come back to haunt us one day, they all do.

What makes you think that (unless it is a 'tongue in cheek' comment). They have to get into the league 1st as well

Dorking play on 3G which Moussa might struggle with injury wise

What actually happens if dorking progress and fan base grows then mark leaves? Surely as the club grows in support there will be calls for it to become more sustainable and the owner not also be the manager.

I’d be surprised if he would leave for a while. However if you have seen their stadium I can’t see them going higher than national Prem - even then it’s a push with basically a stand one side of the ground and then 3 sides of standing at the fence. Parking and access will be a huge challenge

I was there Saturday very professional outfit on and off the pitch but the ground capacity is only 3k and not much room to expand so they would have to move ground if they went any higher
