As previously noted I’m Eastern Suburbs based. I was just smashing a sandwich at Paddington Reserve and who wandered past me but none other than Jimmy the Jet just lurking in a Tshirt and shorts. Funnily enough it was on Oxford Street. It made me wonder if he really does “have more speed than Oxford Street”.

Arriba!

Should have tugged on his ratty 😝

Only dealers on Oxford Street now are scarf dealers and eggplant dealers

Wish we'd got him a few years earlier. He was an excitement machine. Would've loved to have seen him running the length of Leichhardt a few times for us!
Unsure on that. He clearly had speed earlier in his career and could be a total GUN in some games. Flip it his attitude improved a hell of a lot at the back end of his career, the guy has been through a stack of trouble.

Well a gun for 1 season is better then a wash-up for 3 seasons. McGuire's coaching did nothing for him though, actually that's the NR1 reason to fire McGuire a proven defender's stats went way down.

It's going to be hilarious if Ciraldo doesn't pan out.
Gould wld be one of the most opinionated and challenging "managers"to work for, in any industry,and its testimony to Clearys temperament that he survived so long working for him
Possibly a one-off.
Dunno whether Ciraldo has the same temperament tbh
Gould(via Laundy)has got the cattle,but It will only take a year of underperformng results and..boom!

The amount of pressure he'll have at Bulldogs is immense compared to what he would've had with us.
A few bad results could be too much and derail their season... it would be like Barrett all over again except CC will be safe no matter what for a few years, because a 4.5 year contract to pay out is not likely...🤪

All about the results,which Gould only owns if theyre positive.
4th wasnt good enuff for Gould with Cleary
Gould has to be sensitive to his growing reputation as a demanding tyrant,which wld only be further enhanced if Ciraldo were to fail and be ultimately punted
May possibly make both of them unemployable

Whispers at the time Cleary was moved on for something totally non related to football. A few other dominos with senior players leaving around the same time...
Who knows if it was true - But you can certainly join the dots if you wished.

Hadn’t heard that, are you able to expand on the non related football issue ?
