2021 losses: Harry Grant (Storm), Chris Lawrence (retirement), Benji Marshall, Oliver Clark, Matt Eisenhuth, Elijah Taylor, Robert Jennings, Dylan Smith (all unsigned)
bit dirty on ET and Eisenhuth being let go. both love the club and have sacrificed plenty. I know it’s a business and there’s plenty of planning and dollars involved, but both are squad players that would do a job for us for years to come.
I certainly think ET has had a good year. But I ask whether they would get a run at Roosters, Raiders or Panthers and find myself saying no. I’m sure they’ll both get a new contract for next year at a bad or average team.
They wouldn’t, but neither will the players who take their positions.
Jury is still out for me. I feel like if he was really that good, he’d be a bigger part of the Eels side this year. There’s so much expectation on him that he’ll be labeled a plodder by the halfway point of next season. Mark my words.
Oh really … here we go … just can’t wait to write people off.
Sign a mature forward … a plodder.
Sign young well qualified forward with potential … a plodder.
Release a forward in mid development like Siro or Paseka and they turn out good … it’s crap recruitment or we have crap coach time.
Just can’t win with some on here.
It’s Monday, so i’ll forgive you for being shirty at me. All I’m saying is, I will wait till I see him running around in our colours before I make a judgement. Not saying he’ll be a plodder either. I’m saying if he doesn’t reach a certain standard that meets people’s expectations, he’ll get labeled a plodder. Not by me, by the forum. And if don’t believe me, you’ve clearly hacked Momo’s account and don’t know this place. Even Twal was getting labeled a plodder yesterday.
Teddy Blair was useless for us. What a waste of good money that should’ve gone toward retaining Fifita. I’ve always hated seeing dudes like Fifi, Taupau (Dogs U-20’s but we gave him the chance), Beau, Gibbs, Benji first time round, let go and we stock our shelves with lower calibre players that we pay overs for with little return.
Hope this kind of ineptitude is a thing of the past.
Addo-Carr, let’s just get him in the door (for the right price) and deal with the fall-out of not playing fullback later.
Teddy was always special, shd never have let him go, but that’s done.
We need guys who want to be here and have an endearment to the club… Like Nof.
So glad Madge put it succinctly by saying “he’s not going anywhere.”
P.S. Up yours Mini!..
You lost me at Beau Ryan.
Was scrolling YT today and a song called Patience came up in my recommends by Chris Cornell. I thought “it couldn’t be”.
Turns out it was. Idk how I feel about it. His voice is unreal, but I might need to listen to it a few times to see if it grows on me
I like it but in my opinion he altered the arrangement a little too much, that is coming from a guy who has a Cornell song as my username and a pic of him as my profile pic.
I’ve listened to it a couple times today. I like it. So much more emotive than Guns version.
