Or how desperate you are to back Vastman. It was you who claimed his fact based superiority, I was merely pointing out that as per usual your defence at my expense was wrong again. I think the reason given above suggests a little desperation on your part don’t you.

I back anybody that talks sense which does usually include vastman, I'd back you if you could get past your bitterness towards the club but I'm not holding my breath, it's a forum all the time squire not just when it suits you, and my reply to your post was not in desperation to be on his side but to point out my non agreement with your post, you could have just ignored my post, just like I promise you I will ignore your which will undoubtedly will be on it's way, goodbye.

It's always you and them.

He was an older player with an injury issue when we signed him. If that's not within your parameters then strike off Steve Ella, the point still stands.

For the record sometimes older players work out sometimes they don’t. Ditto younger players and everything in between. It’s a judgement call from people far more qualified than us.

You are scrambling for a reason but the subject at the time was veteran signings not injury history. With Brough then it would be valid or even Atkins when we resigned him a second time but Steve Ella was just wrong. We shall see if those people far more qualified than us get it correct at the end of this season.

Is this what you do, lose an argument and use pedantry as your last defence. Must be a hoot in your house at Christmas when the party games start.

I did not lose the argument I was not the one who brought Steve Ella to justify your opinion. I know you just can’t say you are wrong, it is sadly what some now accept as the norm.
If PT is thinking of telling me off don’t worry I have finished safe in the knowledge that despite his protestations he was blatantly wrong and not for the first time.
With regards the player in the topic I actually agreed you cannot assume he would be the same player had he signed for us but unfortunately he didn’t and now he is back at an NRL feeder club, from which I suppose he hopes to get a contract.

Another example I believe in respect of a player being at the correct club is Konrad Hurrell. He has many flaws but these in most cases are covered and he is put into position that best suits his attacking abilities. I think his time at Leeds showed that for them he was just not a good fit.
