Been away 3 days.
No news = No surprise
How’s the cruise?
Yeah good. Sitting in Noumea atm. Really dig this place. I’m working on my Greg Louganis incase we haven’t signed anyone by the 27th. Which is looking likely.
And look, I don’t wanna bag Pascoe, cos overall I think he’s been ok, and i’ve had a couple good personal dealings with him. But…It doesn’t come across well that he’s still out there promoting all the cash we have in the war chest and have done nothing with it. This isn’t October/November. It’s mid January and have nothing to show for this supposed great position we’re in. Does he still talk this way if we haven’t signed anyone of note by June? I can see both sides. I get that people get frustrated when others use him as a punching bag, but I get where the complainers come from. He sounds like a used car salesman. And at this point in time, it’s beyond frustrating.
Bennett was doing exactly what players have done in using WT interest to leverage better deals elsewhere. We had no real hope of getting him.
As for Johnston, if he doesn’t diss WT I’ve no problems with going after him later but if g e publicly diss’s WT like Arrow did we should never consider him again. Pride guys.
what did Arrow say?
It’s somewhere back in the past threads here, very basically he would rather go to mars than play for WT. I’m probably wrong in location mentioned but you get the drift.
I think you’re wrong, period. He’s not record as saying that anywhere. At best, someone repeated it as second hand info. And we all know how on the money insiders have been since this circus started.
Surprised we are even bothering in 2020…
We haven’t even played a trial game and the players are being judged already… lol so much negativity
Guess you missed 2019.
Its 95% the same team that failed beautifully last year. Unless they all got stuck into the peptides i doubt they’ve gotten stronger, faster more talented in 4 months.
More spectacular failures on the 2020 horizon. but yeah, need to be more positive, as i hold the pom poms, “Go Tigers, you can do it…this year, or the next, or the next, yay Tigers”
How can you say they failed? They were supposedly the wooden spooners but instead nearly snuck in the eight… I will remain positive so I guess to each their own… you get even more stressed if you remain or chose to be in that negative frame of mind.
Where were we the supposed wooden spooners? Said who?
Hang on parra brought in 5-6 players we got nothing big difference
They brought them in during and after their wooden spoon year, ie over 18 months.
I think that is what will happen with us also. It will take time.
I’ve heard this same spiel since 2013. 7 years. You can’t blame people for getting annoyed when they are told it will take time and to have patience. Some get sick of it. All that matters atm is 2020, and it’s not looking too promising.
I don’t care about the 1-5 as much as I care about the 1, 6, 7 and 9. We’re looking like a bottom 4 side if we don’t make a signing from left field.
Brooks is going to have it all on his shoulders. Speak of the devil, it’s been literally months since i’ve seen his name written anywhere.
