of course, it's not LEGALLY binding but if a guy says "I'll play for you" and then turns around and goes somewhere else, you're entitled to think less of him for it.

and if a club says you will be in the VL team are they then committed to select that player, I would say yes.

Players are entitled to change their minds. A conversation is hardly a commitment. Get over yourself Nick.


ever heard the phrase 'my word is my bond'?

Yes. Your point is? Are you suggesting that every conversation you have should be taken as a legally binding contract? People change their minds for any number of reasons. Get over it.


You are the least honorable person alive

Interesting who will be Rangers number 1.

Mick wouldn't sign to be anyone's number two

#11 Then explain why Kumpa played in game 1 after only a couple of trainings. Double standards depending
on who you are.
Phillips has trained from day 1.
