Speedy deletion of Vlad Dragomir[edit]

I'm hoping I could get you to reverse your decision regarding the speedy deletion of this article. The fact that he is signed to Arsenal is not something that's changed since the AfD. In fact three of the five editors commenting there, explicitly mention the transfer to Arsenal and that it is not sufficient for notability unless he actually plays for the senior team, which he has not done. Thanks in advance. Sir Sputnik (talk) 20:41, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

I'm not sure I can. I checked carefully before making the decision that this article was no longer a candidate for speedy delete. The original AfD discussion was closed as delete on July 3, 2015. Since then Vlad Dragomir has received a good bit of notable coverage such as in The Mirror and also signed a contract with Arsenal in 2016. It appears Vlad lacked this coverage and the contract when the original AfD was discussed. As such it appears that circumstances have changed and he may be notable. This doesn't mean the article can't be deleted, only that it can't be speedy deleted. I suggest bringing up for an AfD.--SouthernNights (talk) 22:13, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

Kaspars Ikstens[edit]

I can see the point that player has not played a single National game for Latvia in senior level but the fact is that he is regularly on the game sheet for UEFA and FIFA qualifying games as a reserve goalkeeper so technically he takes part in that game, he is on lineup as per example attached Portugal-Latvia game link on BBC[1] so opposition side fans and pundits definitely are curious who is the reserve keeper.Hunter242 (talk) 23:57, 16 March 2017 (UTC)


Jack Jones[edit]

I don't understand why you proposed deletion saying he hasn't played in a professional league. He currently plays for Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC, which plays in the USL, which is a fully pro league, if you have an issue that he hasn't played a game yet with them they are playing a game tonight (3/25/17). He is under contract. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chargersrock54 (talkcontribs) 15:06, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Richard Osei[edit]

Re your deprodding, I did see that he had played in the Slovak top division and checked WP:FPL, which states it wasn't fully-professional at the time at the time he was playing in it, hence why I prodded it. Would you mind reinstating? Cheers, Number 57 16:27, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

@Number 57: Done. Sir Sputnik (talk) 16:33, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

2016–17 Moldovan National Division[edit]

By your edit you've removed Best Goal Award. What's the difference between BGA which you removed, and this one? Thank You 5-ht (talk) 08:58, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

@5-hydroxytryptamine: There are two key differences here: Presentation and relevance. The way the goal of the month is presented in a way that makes it very clear that this is an award, whereas in the National league article it was presented as if these were somehow the objectively best goals. In terms of relevance, the goal of the month is actually covered by other sources than just the announcement article on the Premier League website. Now that may or may not be the case for its Moldovan equivalent, but I can't tell simply from reading the article. If you want include something so inherently subjective, you need to demonstrate that your not putting undue weight on it. I hope that clears things up. Sir Sputnik (talk) 17:53, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Ol Ravy‎[edit]

Absolutely not. This criterion is for when nobody else has made significant input, the same standard as G7. If you create a page, someone else moves it, and then you request G7 speedy, there's no way that it should be accepted. In the same way, deleting this page under this criterion would be entirely inappropriate. On top of that, you're asking me to delete a page when the creating address has not been blocked: do not request G5 unless the creating address or account has been blocked as a sockpuppet.

Daði Freyr Arnarsson[edit]

I created article "Daði Freyr Arnarsson (footballer)" that was deleted early this year. Due to failing the WP:NFOOTBALL, not having taken part in a fully-professional adult league match. I re-wrote parts of the article again under "Daði Freyr Arnarsson", fixing the comments i got earlier and it was nominated for a speedy deletion (which i did not think was fair since i tried to re-write the content, not just post it again). Since then Daði has played his first adult league match and would meet the condition of WP:NFOOTBALL. [1] I've created a new version in my Sandbox <ref><ref>, this article is not poorly written and i don't think we should delete it since the player is one of the most promising young goalkeepers of Iceland (plays with the most successful team FH and has played 13 youth games for the national team so far). The player is significant in Icelandic sport community and is as fully-professional as you can get in the Icelandic league (practices two time daily and is taken care of by the club). I want to propose that we create his article again either under "Daði Freyr Arnarsson" or "Daði Freyr Arnarsson (footballer)". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ivar1988 (talkcontribs) 11:05, 11 April 2017 (UTC)


Danish 1st Division[edit]

If a player have played matches in the Danish 1st Division, is that enough to create a page for them? Fodbold-fan (talk) 17:05, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

@Fodbold-fan: No. According to WP:FPL, the Danish Superliga is the only fully professional in Denmark, so footballers who have only played in the 1st Division don't meet WP:NFOOTY. Sir Sputnik (talk) 17:48, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

It was @Davidlofgren1996:. GiantSnowman 06:52, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Manuel Herrera López[edit]

You nominated the article for deletion on the same day he made his local debut which was also the opening day of the 2017 Philippines Football League, a fully pro league [1]. He has also made appearances for the club in the 2017 AFC Cup. He's very much notable. FilFootyGuy (talk) 17:05, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

@FilFootyGuy: per WP:FPL the Filipino top flight is not fully pro, meaning the article does not meet WP:NFOOTY. Sir Sputnik (talk) 18:54, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

AbouBakr Al Mel[edit]

Hi. You've prodded AbouBakr Al Mel for not having played in a professional match. Doesn't his Transfermarkt history show that he's made 20 Lebanese Premier League appearances? Thanks, Uncle Roy (talk) 02:15, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

@Uncle Roy: There are two issues with that. Transfermarkt is not a reliable source, because most of its content is user-generated. Additionally, the Lebanese Premier League is not confirmed as fully professional (see WP:FPL), meaning that even if the appearances were reliably sourced, it would still not be sufficient to meet the notability guideline for footballers. I hope that clears things up. Sir Sputnik (talk) 02:29, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I see your point, thanks. Uncle Roy (talk) 02:30, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Sockpuppetry question[edit]

It was a combination of the names being in a similar format / very similar editing style/pattern (WP:DUCK). GiantSnowman 09:19, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Respectfully, I'd rather not say, per WP:BEANS (don't want them to know why we're on to them, as it might encourage them to change editing style). GiantSnowman 19:28, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
I've emailed you. Cheers, GiantSnowman 19:46, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

You are weirdo[edit]

My dear Sir Sputnik; I do not think you deal with all the editors in the same way, You always bother me and delete my articles, Ahmed Mohsen Ashour, Karrar Ibrahim, Saddam Salman, and others, You made the same mistake as last time. That's too much. I hope you back down and leave this racism. My articles is don't different, See for example: Marc Bola, Stephy Mavididi, Chris Willock, and others. Thank you any way. ميناء (talk) 18:35, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
