Totally agree, a halfback is not selected for his defence, but for his attacking prowess.

Absolutely. I don't remember anyone complaining that Sandow couldn't tackle when he was winning games for us single handedly.

I agree; most halves I’ve seen have been awful defenders.

That said, Andrew Johns could be the best ‘edge’ defender that I’ve ever saw live.

And Briers, with the right mindset, got the job done. See 2010 cup final. System + Motivation

Poor gazwire. He's the one who has called into question the intelligence of at least 3 posters who have had the audacity to disagree with his posts.

It's not quite like that and you know it Moe syslak. I only respond with less than flattering posts if someone is having a personal pop, and not if someone has a differing opinion. For example, I had a pop at you yesterday because of the following sequence of posts. I'll let people be the the judge:

If you look at previous sides he's coached, he does promote attractive attacking rugby. He just needs all the new players to bed in and assimilate, then hopefully we'll get to see some descent moves, though admittedly, we haven't seen that much yet and it sounds like we still have a way to go.

So it takes all coaches a pre season, a full season, another pre season and then some 'bedding in' time before we can see some attacking rugby? Brilliant! I wish someone would've explained all this to Paul Rowley.

Gazwire wrote:
Well, I don't know if your aware, but there has been quite a lot of player changes so he hasn't had a settled squad to work with thus far.

So you would have wanted Paul Rowley in?

What about Watson, Fergie and Arteta to name a few. Would you have had them out in their first season? I think the answer's yes going on your comments.

In your spare time, do you plant some seeds, see they haven't grown in a week, then chuck them out because they haven't grown. Then repeat this cycle, only to realise, after many attempts, that they need time to bed in and settle first before any growth?

You've written some drivel in support of Powell, but that seed analogy is the best yet!! :lol: :lol:

You wouldn't have the intelligence to discern the analogical meaning, so I'll leave you pondering.

Well when you get your gcse results next week, if you post them on here I'll be happy to bow down to your superior intelligence. :wink:

I'd much rather debate in a civil manner, but unfortunately some posts can lean on the personal side. I should perhaps ignore that aspect, but unfortunately the heart rules the head sometimes and I'll respond in kind. Any unsavoury personal comments I've directed at people will be as a direct response to an initial unsavoury post directed at me. If anyone disagrees with this, then please prove otherwise. I'm happy to be proven wrong, but I'm very certain this won't be the case for any barbs I've posted back.

....and once again, every thread descends to this.

Come on guys, it's what the IGNORE button is for.
