And there are wedding photos on his profile as well, they've been married for about a year.

Probably thought I've just made the second best decision of his life, 

with marrying that glamour being the best

How is he going anyway Taurus, surely you've seen him training and hopefully like your comments about Romeo will leave us feeling pretty excited about seeing him carve up ???

Ruka arrived very fit & I expect him to be on the plane to Wellington on Wednesday morning. 

Ruka, Row-mayo & Saba will carve up this league & Tomi will end up leading goalscorer if he stays here for the entire season.

I hope he sticks around for more than 1 season, is it possible to have more than 1 player crush?  :cheeky:

 

The glimpses he's showed so far have been good, and I really expect him to only get better from here on. Hoping to see another start from him tonight with Saba, Castelen and Juric so they get some time to gel.

He showed a lot more yesterday, beat his man a few times easily. Saba is going to love playing the ball forward for him to get in behind.

He was fantastic yesterday.  Thought he drifted out of the game Wednesday and showed that he needed more time.  Seems 3 days was enough time.  Very excited to see what he can deliver with a consistent run in the team.

hope he scores in the Derby, he's impressed me more than Romeo so far this season (come at me you ****s)

 

hope we snag him for another few years, i reckon he could play 10 if Saba was injured or suspended (not that we want that to happen lol).

Reckon he could be playing striker for us if Tomi leaves in January.

His best game for us so far. Could/should have scored. He'll get there.
