Why so aggressive Peter Strang? it looks like "agreed" just stated some facts and an opinion. Doesn't mean he is wrong or right, just an opinion.
You need to take a chill pill.

Hey Walter, do you have a meaning for "relished" that we're not aware of?

Quoting Agreed:
Quoting prediction:
Broadbent's Kingborough to finish last, shows nothing in attack (no shots on target against Olympia, only a couple of shots against Clarence a couple of weeks ago). Maybe if the defence was solid, wouldn't be so bad, but afraid to say that part of the game is very suspect.
No attack, poor defence = last place.

I think your prediction is spot on. Broadbent finished last with Glenorchy, his under 18 side haven't won a game, so last place stitched up. If he stays next year, off to the championship for Kingborough.


Again egg on your face "agreed" you'll see, put your name on your post and I'll contact your when their year finishes or are you gutless to do that..

Knights Knights knights , very soon to replace Olympia as the most hated club in Tas , why don't they just shut up for everyone's sake , the football community is sick of them and their crap.

Or maybe it's just the NPL cellar dwellers that are sick of hearing how good Knights are

Or maybe the football community are sick of a team that are buying their success instead of earning it.

Would havebeen fun for Knights to play a game against clarence in the end of year finals series. But for the second year in a row clarence are not going to participate. I think they're deliberately hiding so they won't have to play Knights.
