If anything, I want to see him quicker or more desperate in defence. The amounts of times he just gave up making an attempt is worse than his meandering kick returns (which admittedly did improve towards the end of the year.)
Agreed. But injury

quote from article baby, blame the journo. :)
Quote from where?
The Partick Thistle Nil was a joke BTW. The real name is just Partick Thistle, but Billy Connolly once jocked he thought their full name was Partick THistle Nil coz that's what he always heard on the radio fitba results growing up, as in "Rangers- three Partick Thistle - Nil.

Little off-topic but if Thaiday had stayed on this year he would have certainly been dropped before round 1. Very interested to see how the likes of Inglis go under Bennett and what are seemingly very outdated training methods. I predict him to become even lazier.

I never considered GI to be lazy, more of constantly fighting injury to get on the park. Or, have I read you wrong?

He seems to hardly ever give %100 in club games. Saves himself for the big ones and SOO and internationals.

I would say that same attitude translates to his training. We all saw how poor Thaiday became in his last 3 seasons and unbelievably received a guarantee that he would not be dropped.

Yeh that was hard to fathom, but I still think we needed his experience last year. I just hope Siebs is able to rub out any laziness or complacency Sam might have fostered.

No idea but not really the point. Nike is a direct competitor in their clothing field.
Bit like Cam Smith doing VB ads when XXXX sponsored the Maroons. Those thongs look brand new to me, probably a sponsor. Never noticed he had such big feet and toes.

But they’re not a direct competitor in the thong field. ISC are the official apparel sponsor and thongs are considered footwear, not apparel. We should be questioning the style of footwear instead
