So he's not playing in SL next season. So what?

I think the general opinion is he would be a valuable strike player for us and with out him, dependant on who we bring in will be a weaker team. Just by having him on our team sheet would have given the oppo team someting to think about. Can we do anything about him packing up and going home, no, but that doesn’t mean people can’t be a bit down hearted he won’t be stepping out for us next year

Well he has gone whatever reason so time to move on. Who is available? Who would we like to see fill the quota spot. Any World Cup performers still without contracts for 2923?

In another 901 years Err probably none. :lol: :lol:

Bit of a word salad, it goes from...

“There is no ‘is he coming back, or is he not?’ He has just been granted permission to get back for his immediate family.

To...

“From past experience, players need to be there for as long as they can to help. That seems as though it might be long term but we can’t guarantee that at the moment.”

Contradiction much.

Anyway, all the best to Blake, as aloof as he seemed to be at times, it was great to watch him play and even better watching him chunner to the officials, to Ed and to thin air when he didn't have the ball.

Nene was indeed a lovely guy but as others state he did fall off a bit, though I do suspect Rohan will get the best out of him and he'll be a bit of a thorn in our matches against Leeds.

We move on, as we continually do.

Dylan Napa? https://www.seriousaboutrl.com/why-cata ... ink-63871/
192 - Top flight appearances - 6ft 4in, 17st 11lbs. Seems to fit the bill.

If I'm being polite, I'd say he's not the most stable of personalities on the pitch. If I wasn't being polite, I'd say he's a constant liability.

Mick, I don't know anything about him, but we are well and truly at the fag end of the transfer period. The options appear to be buy European or use our 1 available quota spot. Most of the bones have been picked off the World Cup and I guess we are trawling Lammy and Chezzy's black books for an elusive player.

I understand what you're saying. Nappa is just too easy to wind-up and he reacts badly far too frequently for my liking, He's a good player when his heads in the game, and if Lammy thinks he can tame him then I'd trust his judgement, but for me he can't be relied on.

I think it would be a waste of a quota spot as he would either be in the sin bin or more likely serving a suspension. We have had that kind of player before who spent more time off the field than on it.
