gog and Eagles.Whether these articles come from Freedman or the B.N.its all just words and no positive action,only Eagles is in the starting team with Ngog on the bench.All to often we see the same B.S., Mason to save the Wanderers so&so to get the team back on track etc.Too much talk and not enough action and the guiltiest person is Freedman,he's a cross between a lawyer and a politician,never says what he means or means what he says.He says he's not negative, I disagree,he's a fence sitter with no convictions.Get rid and try to get BIG SAM back.There I feel much better now after my rant.Come on you WHITES.

 

Davies/Vela will play in the reserves first (as it says in the article) - I can't be more definitive than that. I'm surprised Eagles is actually playing because that didn't come across that way in the press conference.
