    Sorry mate, I know you're kindly passing on what you've heard. But with all the mess that appears to be our recruitment these days, I'm only ready to believe it when it's officially done and confirmed....

    Great news. He is a true competitor.

    Not trying to say you talk crap J... my dissatisfaction with the club's recruitment/retention process is why I just can't get excited until there are announcements.

    My earlier post was questioning why the club didn't do this as soon as Mateo chose to leave, and have it sealed sooner. Must be having an impact on the players on field imo.

    Like u said, I'm dissapointed also.

    I hope Ando knows what he is doing as he is responisble for recruiting.

    Most clubs are finalizing their 2011 and we haven't started.

    Damn Ozzie.
    We won't have contract negotiations while players are playing crap. Yeah nice one, they just decided to up and leave instead.
    Anyone notice how it takes this kind of crap to make our players do something?

    I'm guessing that our massive bids for the Coopers would have put alot of other signings in limbo

    Yep better believe it. Will have missed the boat by the time Cooper returns from wallabies tour. He will have suceeded in pushing up his union contract and tell us maybe the next year

    Not questioning this info, but why will the actual signing take so long?

    I heard yesterday that Horo's signing has actually been a done deal for a while but there is a hold up because his manager isn't accredited.

    No idea if it's true and I can't be bothered checking it out but that's what I heard.

    I don't even know we'd be chasing him at the knights. We'd already be struggling to fit Taia/Costigan/Hilder/Paterson into our backrow without signing Horo. I'd rather them use the money to extend Mullen and De Gois' contracts.

    If he leaves, it will go down as one of the biggest blunders this club has ever made.

    I wouldn't swap him for any second rower in the comp, we can't afford to lose him.

    bullsh*t Parra "can't match" the offer. Parra surely have more cap space than any other team because of the retarded recruitment/retention policy we have all seen this season.

    What a week, not only we see the First Grade team finals hopes go down the drain, now we are likely to see ANOTHER promising Parra junior let go because of sheer incompetence from management.

    f**k this is hard to take.

    i think he will stay in the blue and gold. we should of wrapped him up at the start of the season. but as long as we offer him a fairly reasonable contract i think he would take less $ to stay at the eels. here is hoping anyway! horo is a great replacement for mateo. dare i say with the potential he has , he will be even better than mateo!

    Hey, don't worry too much about it. If other media reports are true then we have an over-the-hill Brett Kimmorley and an over-the-scales Carl Webb ready to replace him.:roll:
