Maybe if he chased, tackled and worked harder he wouldnt be so cold......what are we running a nursing home or a football club?


Cmon mate, some players thrive in wet, cold, miserable conditions. Others love perfect conditions.

FYI, that comment was pure speculation and a point i'd be highlighted to Freo as a reason why he'd be good for them. ;)

If we include a hot water bottle and some thermal undies for the odd cold day in Freo then that should seal the deal then.... ;)
Seriously I did know what you meant, I was just enjoying some light banter :)  and I do agree that SPS would prefer a dry track where he can keep his feet and use his undoubted skills to better effect.

Ship him off back to the warmer WA and get the best deal we can for him. I wont lose one iota of sleep if he goes.

I'm over him too and rather we deal him while he still has some value.....

He's in the twos for a reason.   What's he played,  a 100 games?   Surely we know by now?
DrE is no more... you ok with that harmonica man?

I thought i read somewhere that he has never actually played 2's football. Surely that can't be true

When he is on like he was when he had 35 possies in a match he can play the game and look like a class player but its been a long while between drinks waiting for another great game like that one. We need players who have more than pretty skills on a fine day and players who dont pick and choose when to display them.
He could probably be the new Lewis Jetta on the WC list and be a similar type player IMHO.

I think that's right. He's played 20, 22, 22, 16 (short season) and 8 so far this year.

SPS has elite skills....when he is fit and confident.
Not sure when the last time was though.

He has a bad habit now of going short, and leaving his kicks even shorter, bouncing it to teammates.

Maybe its because those early games can be a bit chilly having to kick the frost off the grass....

Too true and too conservative - turnover merchant when there is a chance to use his kicking skills to create something.
