Usually, when one of your signings become Man of Steel (Superleague Era) its a pretty good yardstick to shout about:-

Saints 7
Wigan 3
Castleford 3
Leeds 2
Huddersfield 2
Bradford 2
Hull 1
.
.
Warrington............ Zero


And the last one for saints was Graham in 2008.

The difference between the 2 clubs is that in the 10 years since then, we have signed 2 MOS players,at the time of holding the award, to your 0.

So thanks Judder Man for re-affirming that saints fans are on tricky ground belittling other clubs' signings.

You need to understand that most of your signings are “After the Mayors Show”.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.

Lets be totally honest I dont think anyone except the signing of Barba could be lorded as massive overseas signings. Gone are the days when genuinely top players used to sign over here, we will never ever see as many of the likes of Lam, Barrett, Vainikolo, Hape, Renouf, Puletua, Lyon, Gidley etc etc etc. Personally Barba is justifying all the hype he is getting as he is tearing the comp to shreds. We will not see another elite player in their pomp come over here again without a misdemeanor stopping them being signed in the NRL and thats a sad indictment of where our game is

:lol:

They're a damn sight better than yours overall in recent times except Barba. Even one of your saints posters gives a reason, a few posts back, as to why your signings have been poundstretcher in recent years.

Look, just be pleased that your playing well again after a number years of boredom. You're playing totally wicked rugby in the totally wicked stadium with a statue of Kieran Cunningham proudly watching over- pure utopia. The crowds are on the up again with the folk from the wheeled houses returning- all is good.

(By the way I agree with your post thepimp007).

Its a bit of a strange arguement about who recruits the best players, surely you only recruit players to supplement the players you've brought through your own academy.

So if you're recruiting a lot of players it means your not doing too good a job developing your own.

So recruiting more players than another club isn't really something to boast about.

Just a thought

If you read the thread properly, you'll find I'm responding to the usual saints mickey taking of other sides' recruitment when theirs is hardly anything to write home about.

How hard is it to understand that no one has taken the mickey out of anyone’s recruitment. There’s a difference between criticising a player and criticising the clubs recruitment.

So you’ve signed players who were playing very well at the time but now they’ve signed for Wire, they’re failing to hit the heights again? Also, I wouldn’t worry because we are about to have another soon enough.

There is some justification in it, for example your great signing of Tyrone Roberts is probably one of the worst half backs in Superleague only has 1 try and 3 try assists with loads of errors, I reckon you could have signed coronation streets Tyrone Dobbs he would have done a better job and saved you money in the process.

Says everything you need to know about Warrington that they offered a player more money and still got rejected - a small club. Also hilarious how you say Roberts is the highest earner when he’s been garbage for a marquee player so far.

This is serious now-are you really this thick?

Even LeBron James is saying you're an embarrassment to saints fans!!!!!!!!
