What is the obsession that many have for our club to sign burnt out has beens looking for a retirement fund ... I want our club to sign young guys on the cusp of greatness is there anything wrong with that.
Like Corey Thompson who is one month younger than him? :lol:
Anyways... seems he's out and the latest rumour is Holmes.

People who don't want a bar of Coote should just watch his performance tonight for the cows.. Very safe under the high ball, Great left foot kicking and very solid in defence.. He is only 28 years old and would be great for a team like ours.. I say sign him up ASAP.

I think Coote should finish his career in the halves.

He doesn't provide anything that Thompson already doesn't. Waste of money. I'd rather hear talk about us chasing Valentine Holmes than chasing cooties.

Holmes is just a flash in the pan type of player .
Coote is a pure footballer with a great kicking game ...I know which one i'd prefer !

I agree i would love Holmes but do you really think we have a chance ... Coote would be a steal and Thompson would be on the wing and can fill in if needed.. Plus coote can kick also

We probably won't get him, but again, we extended Thompson's contract, he's doing a good job at fullback. We have an Australian schoolboy fullback tied up for another couple of years plying his trade in Flegg, and we've supposedly had a handshake deal with Nick Meaney from the Knights, so I don't see the point of Coote, he's the most expensive option out of those and I don't think he's the best option. Plus we have enough midgets in our backline.

I agree on every point, we just don't need him, if we are going to sign a fullback, sign one with size and pace.

We have Thompson, Tui, now, and Smith , Lemeulu coming through , and possibly Meaney signed. At a pinch we could use Kevie or Heleta. I think we a well covered at fullback. We do need some pace in our backline and possibly a forward that can consistantly bend the line.

Was impressive last night. Has a kicking game and a passing game. You’d easily put Thompson at wing to accomodate Coote.

The biggest downside to Coote, is his body has taken a smashing over the years and he spends a lot of weeks in rehab. No doubting his courage and skill but I think we need size and speed

There no doubt he can play the main risk is his injuries. Could be another Reynolds

Not the type of player we need. We need serious wheels in the backline (Coote used to have it, now hes lost it).

I am happy to move Thompson to the wing, but I don't think theres a significant difference in him and Coote. Coote is obviously a better fullback, but given our lack of pace in the backline I actually think Thompson is the type of fullback more needed for us given our pace dilemma.

Holmes I think is a different kettle of fish. I would go there.
