5th then 3rd. The only way is up baby.
No no no no no!
"We're lacking speed! We need speed!"
*Eels allegedly look at the best, most realistic option with genuine speed available*
"BA is a shit merkin! This team will win the spoon!"
I know French has many flaws, but he also adds genuine attacking spark to the side.
Theoretically, there isn't really any reason why he couldn't become the best winger in the game - he is of a similar build to Addo-Carr; all he needs is the right attitude.
He is smaller than JAC. He is slower and less explosive than JAC. And he does not like physical contact.
People have short memories. French was pretty damn good until he injured his ankle.
French sooking and not having a go because he didn’t get picked at fullback had nothing to do with an ankle injury,
French was decent until oppositions worked him out and removed what little upside he had and exposed his enormous weaknesses. We seriously have rocks in our head if we’re thinking of bring him back as anything other than a backup.
One of worse signings ever. Up there with Nathan Barnes
Our best player is Gutherson. Wtf would you want to move him for?
For teddy,Turbo,Ponga or Rts you would.
For Bevan French? Fmd......
We need an edge forward and halves to improve. Better options on bench.
That is all thanks. We are not far away. People are making out we come last.
Downhill skier...only ever capable of providing 20 minutes in the middle of the match.
WTF....since where has BA suggested Gutho is playing centre? You really need to stop reading the Telecrap....why wouId BA change our best spine player to a non spine position..,,...f**k BA loves Gutho and there is no chance he is playing centre.
FMD!! People really jump to conclusions!!
Where has someone from the club said he is coming for a top 13 spot?
BA had French playing reserves even with a contract that was probably more then the minimum, so why wouId he suddenly sign him and guarantee him a top 13 spot ?????
What a f**ken beat up!!
I cant afford the Telegraph. Just my thoughts. What will be will be dude. I cant wait though. Roll on season 2021.
You know its going to be just like this season except your balls will be hanging a bit lower right?
I'm a Bevan French fan, so I'd be happy with the signing - but he has improved his game since budging in the Super League.
He is not as physical as Addo-Carr (and he's not really much smaller, anyway), but he is more agile, and much more skilful.
Luke Burt had a wonderful career for us - who is to say that Bevan French won't?
Seriously! Why would anyone take these stories seriously, there is no way that the club would swap Moses for Pearce, also the way the team is set up there would be no sense in moving Gutherson from the position he has made his own.
Same as the click bait re the powerful lobby questioning the club and moving to change the board etc, the media these days do so little fact checking, they issue clickbait stories and rarely report with any conviction when told the real story by the club.
What is the big story would be the work that needs to be done to fill the holes in the roster after player releases etc, that would mean they actually do some research and use resources to get some info on what the targets are. Havent seen research like that in a long time, they seem to trawl social media and run with half baked ideas from blogs they read. Frilingos and others would roll their eyes at current media levels of reporting.
Stop the leaks!
Luke Burt has a good career because wingers played a completely different game back in the majority of his career. You would notice that he was pretty ineffective towards the backend of his career. He was getting ragdolled and struggling with the physicality of the game because he was too small. No one questioned his footballing ability or smarts. These are the same reasons Bevan French will not be a first grade quality winger.
Shows the type of fans on here, you simply don’t change your best players position!
He is now in the top 3 fullbacks for mine, but hey let’s suggest moving him hahahaha
Unfortunately he wasn't completely suited to any position. But it was worth trying him in different roles.
