    He could be huge for us! As good as Kikau on his day.If he lands here,I hope our crew can get him playing consistent.
    Madge was able to get Luciano playing well,fingers crossed.
    I’d would be nice to have a huge angry presence on our edge 😂

    He could carve up for us or be a big flop, or both in the same game. He’s probably been playing the best footy of his career this year been punching out some really good numbers but still has some laziness in his game.

    It makes sense for us just hope if he comes we don’t get the bad part of his game when he plays for us which seems to happen more often than not when we sign players like him. Hopefully it’s more like Luciano where he switches on and puts a big effort in to improve his weaknesses.

    But madge can’t attract players…

    Who would you prefer Maumalo or Addo Carr?

    If your talking as straight up wingers - Addo Carr

    But it your talking Maumalo at $350 000 or Addo Carr at $800 000 - Maumalo

    Even if his signing does come of, he’ll be suspended for the first couple of games for his crusher on Murray. Who’d have thought that huh? I think e get carried away with names. The reality could be having a player that has earned a reputation that keeps him off the field more than on it.

    Liverpool’s more our area than the bloody SFS… might as well play in Canberra if we go to the city.

    Parra was already at Bankwest

    No one is at Liverpool… Either there or Cambo… If you’re not in you’re not in

    This club has been held back.for 21 years thru failing to make tough calls, trying to appease all… Once and for all show some balls and make a call on one home
    … Once it’s done it’s done… People are walking away already

    Saw the rumor mill had us bidding for Pearce and a couple, of blokes on here backed that as a good idea, well its a hard no from me.
    Pearce has had numerous opportunities to sign with us, and has always gone the opposite way, and now that his career is almost over, his contract is only a fraction of what it used to be and he is only getting signed on one year contracts, now he is being touted as a signing for the tigers.
    Brooks is our half back, and he is playing well, the club has already signed Madden as his heir apparent and we have decent options coming through in Flegg and SG Ball, we don’t need him.
    Besides what would it say about the standards of this club, or our future direction,what sort of club are we that we would find it acceptable to be considered a last chance option for aging footballers with no other options.
    Ignore the legacy crap, just like Mitch did. Wayne was a true champion and a Balmain legend…but not a Wests one and certainly not one for the West Tigers.

    It won’t happen.
    I suspect New Zealand are freeing their cap and will make Mitchell an offer because they need that structure and a first grade halfback. It will either be Mitchell or Shawn Johnson returning.

    A part of me would love Mitchell to partner with Brooks. Brooks could really use someone to work with him in the halves and he and Mitchell both play a similar game as I see it. It would have to be a chickenfeed deal with a coaching assistant job for later on. Won’t happen.

    South’s, well there may be a possibility there. They have lost a massive talent in Adam Reynolds, I never understood why he was always on the outer there. Mitchell signing for a year then going working with the halves, why it would be the best revenge against Easts wouldn’t it 🙂

    Mitchel is a NO from me as a player, but maybe as a halves coach?

    its mind-blowing that people supporters dont want him. The other team to throw their hat in the ring is the roosters but hey he isnt good enough for our fans lol

    Nothing to do with him not being good enough. More to do with the huge risk of signing someone on big money who has form at being a liability with his ill-discipline on-field for me.
    JWH has had a great run at the Roosters of repeatedly getting off charges at the judiciary, the Roosters would be banking on producing the same ‘magic’ with TPJ if he signed with them instead of us.
    Would be willing to bet that TPJ will spend a heap of time on the sidelines through suspension if he joins WT.

    hes on big money but we won’t be paying it all. so that makes him value

    If he’s watching from the sidelines it won’t be much value.
    If he does sign hopefully he absolutely kills it for our club for sure. There is a huge risk it could turn into a disaster signing as well. We’ll see how it all plays out.

    I guess, you could say all signings come with risk? We’ve certainly had our share of dud ones.

    In the TPJ interview, he mentions “that players need to be held accountable for results”?

    Can’t agree more.

    That’ll be our second mid year recruit to verse a team twice in a row after Maumalo, should TPJ arrive before the Souths game in 2 weeks time (bye week for every club next week)

    Weird hey; it’s happened a few times recently as well. Moses Mbye did it when he joined us, played the Titans two rounds in a row. There was someone else last year too, I can’t exactly recall who.
