    One thing we can expect is the usual 'patience' theme that Lawrie and Ernie run with the last 2 offseasons. Therefore our 'major' signings will be signed late in the preseason again and again they will arrive 'not as fit as aniticipated' so they will take the usual 6-8weeks to get fit.

    FFS we should already have our list of targets and budgets should be known. We need to have the whole squad fit and firing for Rd 1 next season, not this waiting until a few weeks out from the season to finalise the squad.
    I always wonder if people realise that we don't have a list of players. We don't scout players or watch other leagues or really pay attention to other teams in the league.

    Our only source of signings is when agents come to us with a player. Then, we review some footage and take a guess whether or not they'd work in the league.

    The Jets are a two-bit operation. Last year was a fluke, Dimi and Nabboot were flukes, we will have years of mediocrity and then something good will fall on our lap for a year or two and we just need to enjoy it when it happens. Anything positive that happens to the Jets has very little to do with the hard work/skill of those running the place.

    I find it strange the way our 3 spokesmen (Lawrie, ernie and Griff) operate. They seem to always be contradicting each other's comments in various media

    Yep fair comment although I did have a conversation with lord Griff about recruiting and his role in everything and he told me he has a rather large network of agents and contacts (ex teammates etc working in football) that he corresponds with constantly throughout the year.

    I have no doubts about Lord Griff being able to compile a list of players.

    Unfortunately I'm not so confident when it comes to the club actually being able to make competitive offers to players.

    you didnt put in the part where you obviously fainted with glee at being granted an audience with Griff.

    Blessed be your day and the rest of your life, for Griff has fulfilled your purpose.



    Griff.

    Heard about that. It was the night he took a couple of fish and some bread and fed the masses right?


    Hail Griff.

    Devere couldn't game time in a team with the worst defence in the league (conceded 71), but i would still rather him over Boogard or Jackson. That is how little i think of those two. Those contract extensions are worse than any result this season.

    None of them.

    Babalj could have been anything but like so many went overseas to improve himself and instead came back half the player he was. I'd question if this blokes even State League level these days.

    Devere has been injured / below par for the last 4 years. He was good but after 4 years of showing nothing I'd say he's finished as well.

    The others are either over priced imports or players the Jets smashed with ease all season.

    Devere 5 years ago yes. But now he's not anywhere near the standard of Boogs or Jackson.

    Seriously, I reckon busted arse Devere is better than Boogs. I don't want us to sign him, he's useless nowadays. But resigning Boogs and Jackson is just the ****ing worst decision we've made.

    None of that list will be signed by us, a few might go to the Mariners. Devere, Nigro, Tongyik and Caletti will probably be in talks with the scum. Then will move on to be recycled again in another year.

    Yes. But he's a CM and we have plenty of those. He's also diminutive which isn't a good thing in this league.
