Putting aside the injury concerns - how many games has O'Loughlin actually been at his best this year (or anywhere near it)?


His best as in his prime? Probably none, there might be a couple of games which I'm missing.

There are still things which he does every time that he's on the pitch that other can't do. As was pointed out a page or 2 back, he plays 5 minutes against Hull and we probably don't win if he doesn't

Those 5 minutes against Hull were brilliant - put Farrell through a gap, Bryne through a gap and created the space for the Leuluai kick to Marshall.

Last season was a year too far according to you. Remember, the one where we lifted the trophy? :wink:

The year where he managed less than 19 minutes per game for half of the season, I seam to recall he only managed 9 minutes in one game, Add his total minutes up for last season and it is the equivalent of 8 games, Simply not good enough

Haha.. You're just making things up now. I showed you up on this once before. Don't make me do it again! :lol:

BTW it would be more accurate to say "the season we wouldn't have made the final at all without him". How come that never figures in your appraisal? Why do you conveniently forget the games we won only because he took the field... and there were plenty of them. Do you not remember Catalans away for example or is it easier to ignore anything that doesn't fit your agenda?

This season he's played 19 games so far and has averaged more minutes per game than any other middle. How does that tie in with your 1 season too long mantra?

No idea if this is true, but even if it is it's a misleading use of stats for a player who is rotated when he plays. James Roby won MoS by playing in <40 minutes a game.

He's self evidently still producing the goods when on the pitch. Sure we'd all like to see him play every game, but I really don't get the clamour to lose someone of his quality when he plays more games than he misses.

You mean the games where he played 9, 11, 14, 17, 19 minutes, As for the playing more minutes bollox, nothing more than club propaganda

I know you have topless posters of Lockers on your wall but come on it's time to let him go :CHEERS:

I would give him one more year, but perhaps use him as a sub at either loose forward or at prop i.e middle in current terminology.
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row
