That's the look of a man who's just experienced Sydney airport customs for the first time.

And then there is the $300 fine one of your brothers copped at a deserted bus stop in gosford after the March 2013 rain match. Someone in uniform though a blue thin line had been crossed. I trust Romeo is a non smoker though, and will travel on the team bus.

It did indeed. It was effing disgraceful. It seemed as if the three police officers who surrounded him had finally found someone they could bully. As I've said before, I've lost a great deal of respect for the force since I've been hanging out with WSW people, and it started back then in Gosford even before I turned active.

In a straight upgrade Castellen has taken Hersi's #17.

How about we see if he can score a goal before we start calling him an upgrade.

So, in the absence of any further trial matches, the first time Romeo will be released on the pitch will be against the VIC in round 1. Should be good. If it is true that in his younger years he used to be considered in the same league as Robben then we all should be in for a treat.

Can't wait to see him play, especially if he's supposed to be better than Hersi.

Dislocated / fractured his thumb in the intraclub trial today.

Shouldn't prevent him from training or playing once its treated & the swelling subsides.

His ability to beat a man whilst dribbling is a sight to behold & his body positioning is a feature of his ball retention & defensive work. The left backs in the Aleague are going to have nightmares after being carved up by this guy.

He's also likely to assume the role of corner / set piece taker.

Better than Saba? Haven't rated his free kicks on goal but corners/deliveries in the box have been delicious!

I have been reading posts by 'experts' on other forums that Romeo is 31 so he is over the hill and has played hardly any games so won't be an issue this season.

 

:rofl:

He's a must for my Fox Fantasy team. Best value on the market.

 

Only wish SFC still had MW playing LB coz the Derby would've been a comedy festival.

Both Shannon & Vitor were on the opposing team today, so we have multiple options.
