I've not got a problem letting knights have their moment like I said previously I congratulate them. I just don't agree with people needlessly ripping into people and when it's a team mate or my club then I will defend it

So if the rolls were swapped and prospect were in the state league and they had the chance to bring in players to try to strenghten there team your saying you wouldn't have done that ?


Prospect in the state league? Don't make me laugh

Rangers played v league players because they were the ones at training, not cause they got picked over anyone.

Hahaha. If that's what you think. Good luck at Somerset. And I'm not trying t be an arse like you there. I have got some mates at your club who I want to do well. People like you who hide behind a nickname and slag individuals off are just an embarrassment to your clubs.

Behave. We tried to win the game just like you did and I definitely think that we wouldn't have put any pathetic comments like that on here. So il carry on sitting on my high horse thankyou while you sit on yours.

Don't try that win with dignity crap mate, You played 6 v league players, 2-3 that hadn't played an npl game all year. Fair enough if they had been playing weeks previous which they hadn't

You tell me what dignity that would have been if the result went the other way? Just a thought before you get on your high horse
