Shannon Cole HAS to play now. Cole, Elrich, Appiah-Kubi, Minniecon please.


agree Mox especially with Elrich, he's looked lethal off the bench with very limited minutes

Exactly, Cole and Elrich and even Minniecon are experienced and looking at them in the 11 will make our attack look much better along with the young gun, Appiah

I'm pretty sure they do it every week as like a "player to watch" thing with different players and it was his turn... Which was weird because he didn't play... And particularly weird because the speakers over the RBB were patchy for the whole pre-game, and off for his whole segment.

It was a 'player sponsorship'. In this case it was some model agency. There was a twitter post or news item or something I saw, a bunch of models from the company came out to the game.




Or this...

congrats to the big fella for getting married today. Wonder if he is getting any time off for his honeymoon?



maybe popa has shouted him a free trip to gosford.




Would a better present be a starting spot in the side?

this guy needs to stand up when it comes to set pieces me thinks. check out 4:10



Outstanding highlights package of Shannon, how confident is he crossing with either foot?

I always prefer him playing on the right, but I agree let him take a set piece and hope he scores just to see him do the celebration.

I still love his nickname for Shinji....tense eyes.
