Hindsight is a wonderful thing re Api. After 2019 next to nobody was saying keep Api over Fainu. I always liked Api as a player and at times thought he got a rough deal of it on here. But there was no way in hell I would have said to keep him over Manase back in 2019. I don’t believe there was ever a chance in keeping both. Is what it is now.And to think the brains trust at our club chose this guy over Api. They let a special player go in Api he has the kind of infectious energy that gutho, paps, Murray, Mahoney and the like have, they are the type of players you can build success around, high energy 80 min players, and a pretty bloody decent 9 to boot, (now we don’t have one) and here’s a critical point, we couldn’t get 80 out of Api, even though the panthers can rest him for 10 at times, or when the game is sealed, he is easily an 80 min player now, highlights how our system is not up to speed, our conditioning is so far off the money, I think our level of professionalism across the club is a long way of the money, we need to improve every aspect of our club, harsh but true. what about this question, who would you like in our 9 now if you could chose between the 2? What a dumb question, what a dumb decision to let Api go.
Croker- definite no
Lawton-juries out on this one until we have something to base an opinion on
cust- better option than the first 2
DCE- would like to see it get a chance, but highly doubt that will ever happen
Api-of course it’s a no brainer
oh well since that ships sailed I would like to see us improve with what we have and I can’t see how running DCE at 9 for a while, either starting there or rotating for periods during a game shouldn‘t be tried given where we’re at. Yes I know it won’t happen, how stupid, let’s just keep rolling with the same dumb **** we are, because of course that’s smarter, the results prove it, right? Wrong.
