I'm not holding my breath for us signing top draw players.

Darrell Griffin and Danny Brough are my bets :(


Griffin and Johnson. Brough :lol: we would be lucky.
Dropkick Murphy..we actually saw and heard a mass of bouncing and scarf and flag waving to Dale Cavese that drowned out anything we could muster.. It stopped us singing our own celebratory songs, it died out seconds later when we accepted we couldn't be heard over the Wigan lot
Celebrations muted from us, job done from them. Most fans who slag them off are jealous their own club's support is nowhere near that good

sally cinnamon..Why not discuss Wigan? It's a rugby league message board. Wigan are the most famous brand in rugby league
-
Tre Cool..Saints fans are hopeless unless it's a cup final or grand final. Wigan fans are so much more loyal and passionate
-
the flying biscuit..Wires havent been massively succesful over the years, but I've spoke to Brian Bevan And he spoke to me and i wouldnt swap that for Wigans History, ever
-
Ande..on the TV i could only hear the Wigan fans with about 10 to go
-
Saint94..Every team is in your feckin shadow, we all know

I just hope Mr Lenagan can pull a couple of rabbits out of his hat we're not expecting and that we'll be happy with.

If we sign only Griffin and Johnson i expect our crowds to be very low at the beginning of next year and thats no good to him.

I would sooner have Coley and Bailey resign.

If our only signings are Griffin and Johnson then the season tickets sales will be down over 1000 again.
The avge att will go through the floor!
At the moment it appears IL hasn't signed anyone.
He's plenty time and plenty quality players out there. He has to be prepared to pay the going rate to sign them. Other clubs are paying it and if we don't then we won't sign anyone!

Agreed.

If Griffin and Johnson are the best we can come up with we literally may aswell not bother.

Keep Hock and Smiths money to one side and see if anybody becomes available during next season.

I think that's what Lenegan has planned, after all he states about only signing quality players so if there none available what do you do, you wait till the right players are available and then you sign them and if it's 2011 then so be it. I'd rather wait till then than sign the above mentioned.

Wigan wins - 6 Leeds wins - 0

Don't you struggle. Don't you fight. Don't you worry, cause it's your turn tonight!

I just hope he does another couple of Gleesons. Proven good players who can be world class and win games. We do not need Thurston, Lockyer, Inglis, they would cost too much, we need a good TEAM. Thats what saints have, a TEAM they actually have so many average players, as shown in the WC.

I would agree, I don't think that average is the correct word it's probably a bit harsh, I would say more superleague quality is right. A prime example of this is Sinfield at Leeds, dependable and consistent with good enough skills to compete at this level but as we know when moving up to an international level he's severely exposed, yet he's good enough for this competition.

IL may as well shut the club down if he signs Griffin & Johnson.
