    You merkins knew it was coming.

    I wasn't too sure about him before - I'll be honest.

    But he's made me eat my words.

    He is a must-keep.

    All hail the king, baby!

    You people and your lack of faith in the King make me sick.

    Well there was a report last week that he wants to test the market, then gives us the opportunity to match the best offer.

    He has also expressed a desire to see what happens to BA first.

    So what clubs would offer him 700k +, All the QLD based clubs?

    I can see Gold Coast offering that

    With Darius close to retiring id imagine, wouldnt be surprised showponys throw a bit at him, especially if his form is brilliant week to week.

    NQ desperate to get a decent FB

    What position do you think he’ll play? Centre?

    I dont see Gutherson leaving. He is not a million dollar player . Few teams may throw the 700k.Bulldogs perhaps. But I reckon he is type that stays if offers close or within 50k.

    We need to re sign our spine by round 10. Moses is good enough. Just the price must be sorted.

    The rest of squad I wouldn't be that fussed about. Guys like Manu,Mannah I am happy to keep around but they are plug and play.
    I would also be keen to put Salmon in centres soon. Parry or GJ maybe options over MJ at a cheaper cost.

    You can’t just let players like Mannah, Manu and Jennings leave and replace with some promising junior because they are cheaper.

    It’s f**ken stupid, yeah juniors need to be given a chance if they are good enough but gee experience is pretty bloody important too!!

    Letting all our experience players go is a good way to f**k our squad balance up again!!

    No team will offer anything close to 700k.
    And why is our club captain (gutho) using the media as a leverage to pump up his price. Its not a good look for Parramatta when dopes like kent and Matty are saying we're lowballing. The club comes before the individual, and a captain should never put himself before the club.

    500 maximum

    Guys like
    Tepai,Moses,Gutherson,Lane,Brown, Ferguson,Terepo,Jnr, Evan's,Alvaro are all now quite experienced.
    And it's not to say we dont sign a better more experienced player to replace a Manu,Jennings or Mannah.
    They just are not high priority. Happy with all 3 to stay.

    I also feel Stefano,Kafusi and Stone will all see quite a bit of first grade in 2020. Parry unsure about currently. While GJ shouldn't be forgotten about.

    I will pay him high. He's the captain and will maintain the stability of the team in the years to come.

    Than again, I'm not an accountant :p

    Cows might, broncs probably go Isaako, Tits will throw money at everyone, knights no, manly no, Rorters no, dogs maybe, tigs maybe, Panfers unlikely, Souffs unlikely, Sharks no, Drags maybe with their elastic cap, Canbra might, Scum unlikely, NZ no

    Edit - this is obviously very fluid if certain other fullbacks eg Dedwards or Mbye go to complete plop

    It’s an interesting thing. His market value probably isn’t very high because his name isn’t Ponga, Tedesco or Trbfichrinfjevic but if you underpay him significantly then human nature may lead to him getting the shits and not playing very well
