There's no chance of him being another Cornthwaite.

Cornthwaite was boss.

At best, Thwaite is 66% of Cornthwaite.

Haha,,,,,,He must have been an undercover boss as he was in most strikers back pocket during the game.

You must be confused Jaggy number 17 is  Borda and 18 is Cornthwaite . Happens when you drink too much at the football I remember I thought Jumpei was a good player after round 1 .

I get what your saying Sweeper...Borda was another who had the first touch like a rogue elephant.

but Robbie for me compared with Beauchamp, NTS and Spiro is no student of Catenaccio :woah:

Cornthwaite is good. Don't know what game you've been watching.

I thought Robbie had a pretty dismal start but warmed and found his inner mongrel towards the end of season. If he carries that into the new season and maintains fitness he'll be good.

Excellent.

hy January, is that how long he's injured for?

I think you might be misreading it (and Roy).

Newcastle were talking to him this past January about leaving his Thai club (presumably for whatever reason his club no longer wanted him?) but he had the knee injury which meant he was going to be out longer than the rest of the season anyway.

His injury should be completely healed up by the start of pre-season.

Upon closer inspection it appears you are correct.

I'm a bit indifferent on the subject of players returning.

It's a bit like getting back together with your ex. Sure it's exciting at first because you've got all that nostalgia, but eventually that turns too often to unrealistically increased expectation. 

Sometimes I'd rather we have a punt on an unknown and be either pleased or disappointed than have someone return and potentially dilute what they have achieved.

We will always have his non-goal celebration to remember...! One of the best..!

( To be fair to Bulut it was not offside...felt sorry for the poor bugger at the time ..lol)

i think bridgey returning is a bit better than the likes of tyson and bulut.

Dimi Petratos apparently looking to come back to the a-league. Brisbane and Newcastle are the two most likely destinations but i'd take him here in a heartbeat.

Petratos would be welcomed by me every day of the week. Looks like Newcastle is about take him back it, word is he just has to put pen to paper. They are building quite nicely this year.
