I'm not convinced he'll work out. I'm pretty fickle though so come back to me in March :lol:


i think he'll go well. Certainly sounds like he's coming with a big point to prove and hopefully he'll prove the doubters wrong.

For me out of the new incoming quota players, Ese ese and Brown are the 2 that you would pick as the ones you'd expect to go well in SL, however hopefully Pele and Okunbor will also prove to be very good signings, think Okunbor may surprise quite a few. Looking forward to seeing Ese ese and Pele take to the field.

If, and it doesn't always work this way, they all click, then I do genuinely think we can spring a few surprises, maybe not against the very top teams, if they are also on it, but certainly the mid table teams that we may have struggled against previously, because that must be thereabouts the biggest pack in the league and with Brown in international form, then good things could happen. We will need a good bit of luck in the halves and hopefully the new spine will be good off the back of some real go forward. After feeling quite despondent I've had another look at some of the Bulldog games and Okunbor, while not catching the eye, does do some good things and covers line breaks well, at times, so maybe he'll find his form and surprise us all. Glass half full today.

Pele is a very big man

If he runs anywhere near his weight he's gonna be the line breaker we need.

Carrying a bit of puppy fat round the mid section. Doesn't mean too much but I just think his fitness could be a worry

Plenty of time to get some good conditioning in to him and have him ready for round one.

Just read the article on Hull's website about Balmforth doing extra training abroad during the off season, hopefully he'll really kick on and be in the 17 by the end of the season, seems a natural successor for Houghton.

That's a decent looking 13 but the big worry for Salford is how many will be there come the end of the season.


And where they will be at the start of this season, there must be a bit of concern about the club, the ground etc. from within although they do have an excellent coach and a core of very good players including Sneydy but you know my feelings on letting him leave anyway.
