Hopefully Mansour waits until this Semi drama unfolds.
What the f**k is going on? I assume Semi, although being very good at football is not the sharpest tool in the shed?
I may be in the minority but I don't give a shit if he doesn't come back. I understand he is awesome and all that but if he truly doesn't want to play for us and wants to chase the money then get rid of him not rather than have speculation every time the guy leaves the f**king country!!
Pretty sure he has three options:-
1. Play for Eels until end 2017
2. Pay Eels damages, or
2. Sit the remainder of 2016 +17 out.
Dogs took SBW to court and were granted an injunction preventing SBW from playing for Toulon.
France can pay us 500k and they can have him!
How about we get them to pay us how much is going on top of the cap?
Getting ridiculous. Every time he leaves we are going to have this drama? If so he can go. Chase Josh Mansour
Damages likely wouldn't amount to much if the reported $250k contract is correct. Less than a season and a half to play. Wouldn't even get an equivalent strike winger for that amount for a season.
We'd also lose the 'guaranteed' TPA values off our cap next year despite him not being here or so it seems
So after reading the article
His quotes are
"I don't know what I'm doing yet"
"I'm just here talking it through my my family"
"I'm here just to have a break"
After actually reading the article I think the headline is a little misleading.
His relationship has broken down and they're considering bringing his father to Australia for semi to care for him
Who wouldn't honestly need a break. Semi obviously thinks he's needed more at home by his father and that has been the case a long time. Remember his interview for footy show saying "he would. Love to care for his father but his father keeps telling him to play football"
f**k him. I hope a coconut crab snips of his old fella.
I would have preferred "it's a beat up. I love this club. I will be honouring my contract."
Of course but honestly we don't know the line of questioning to semi. I mean she flew to Suva and only got those quotes? What a cracker of a reporter
Reporter: Semi are you going to have steak or fish for dinner ?
Semi:" I dont know what I'm doing yet."
Agree 100%. There isn't much in those quotes. I'm sure jurnos are twisting words just for click baits sake.
It would be like a termite trying to take down a tree trunk.
The quote "I'm just here to take a break" makes me think it's out of context
We will find out either way next week, if he doesn't come back there is not much we can do about it.
I feel for the kid, his dad is quiet sick and he is a flight, then boat trip, swim and hike away if things turn for the worse.
But if he goes to France he'll be 3 Flights plus all the rest away.
Maybe his manager has bills to pay, who knows.
Then his manager should be contacting Con Ange to arrange a TPA, instead of trying to pass the buck.
f there's any chance that Semi is signing with a French rugby team then we just pull the subs contract from the Frenchies, forcing the Frenchie government to kill the deal.
