I completely understand that Seibold wants roberts to improve his defence / bit more effort etc / maybe even is trying to get him to ask for a release.

I do think we need better centre depth next year if roberts leaves. Shibasaki, I dunno. sure he is alright in defence, but he is slow, makes a few mistakes and doesn't have much attacking threat about him at all.

Hopefully Roberts pulls his finger out and gets back in the team, or we release him and get someone else.
Shiba is 20... relax mate, he has plenty of time to learn. Jack Reed was considered slow but played pretty well.

Yes would be nice to have Jimmy back, but he is widely inconsistent and it seems like pulls up with an injury or "soreness" after every game.

Jack Reed wasn't good though...

Each to their own, but you need players like him to fill out a squad, max effort, do the little things right, solid defensively, great attitude, doesn't need the spotlight and consistent week in week out.
Every player can't be a "superstar".
Roosters **cough**

Jack Reed was criminally underrated by many Broncs fans. He was not Hodges or Tate but he didn't need to be. What he was though was a fantastic defender and a guy who actually knew how to pass. He was super dependable and I would take him in just about any side in a heartbeat. Brilliant TEAM player.

He knew how to pass sometimes, but he also had moments where he hogged it up, and we gave him shit for it.

Still a shame he only pulls those plays out once in a blue moon. There's a reason Renouf was the first ever player to be offered 1mil\season.
Mate, are you sure about your figures? I would be absolutely amazed if back when Renouf was playing he was being offered a million a season??

Just watched the Roberts highlight reels, and Renouf's as well. While Roberts is nowhere near the complete footballer the Pearl was, damn I miss Jimmy's explosive acceleration, sheer speed and agility, that x-factor which made watching him at his best so exhilarating and which I think is pretty much unique at the moment in this competition.

Sort your shit out mate and get back into 1st grade

Yep. He turned it down. A certain uncle told him to name his price, so as a joke he said 1mil. The uncle said ok.

No prizes for guessing who that club was.

Yes I read the article. You see the bit where Renouf then signed a 4 year deal with us for $500K a season. There was never a genuine offer of $1M there, if it happened, it was Politis playing games with no genuine intention of paying Renouf anywhere near that money.

I dunno, I remember when Renouf re-signed with us he did say he never intended to leave despite the offer. Maybe that's the only reason a contract was never drawn up. There's not that much out there on this but I remember it was a pretty big story when it happened. Someone with a better memory than me might be able to fill us in. Renouf was an absolute superstar.
