Parra is back to regularly scheduled programming. Will be reluctant to tip them again
Its been a good move for him. He is benefiting from not having to just be in the side like he was here just to defend and he is making a lot more dummy half runs and a bit more freedom in his play like he did in the 20's and his early days here. Helps as well he hasnt been playing injured.Opacic has been really good tonight tbh.
It just seems to happen to some players for some reason.Why the hell they couldn’t play like that during their time here?
Agree with that. Just the way things happen sometimes. Sometimes they just need consistent football to bed in. Other times, like i said with Opacic, they just need to get injury free. He pretty much played his debut year and every year after with some sort of injury. He played all last year with a groin that needed surgery ( not sure why he didnt just get the op done ). Now its done, he is training properly and has lost about 9 or 10 kgs. Arrow has benefitted from just playing week in week out and his improvement is excellent.It just seems to happen to some players for some reason.
They will be at a club and put in some good performances but for whatever reason they would just find it difficult to really hit their stride at the club.
Then they have a change of scenery going to a different club and boom, they are like a whole different player.
Wallace and Arrow are the two perfect examples. Neither of them played that way at the Broncos despite plenty of opportunities to.
Even when Arrow was in the starting team at the Broncos he wasn't playing like he did at the Titans.
