Come on John, Bobbie WILL be there for the 21st broken collar bone or not!
 Playing Wigan is the easy bit, Sheffield next weekend will be a different
story.  Saints never seem to play really well against the Eagles.  The big
head to head in that game has got to be St.Bernard against the Sheffield
Eagle.  Look for Bern to kick ass!!!!!

Dare I say it. Well I will.

The way Tommy Martyn has played in the half back positions for the
last two games, particularly yesterday,  compared to the effort BG has
put in since the cup final, will it matter ?

BG has been very lazy lately, and seeing someone in his shirt doing
the job better may give him a kick up the arse..

Sean Mcrea seems to be a realist, and will not put players in because
its "their"  position, so should be interesting when Bobby is better.

Too damn right it will! That was the most spineless Saints performance
I have seen in ages. They were a disgrace. They should have reached
100 easy against what was effectively the PSG reserve team. In days
gone by whenever Shane Cooper was not on the pitch Saints ran around
like headless chickens. On the strength of yesterday's display the
same seems to be true when Bobbie's not there. It speaks volumes that
the Man of The Match award went to a player, Tommy Martyn, who was
only on the pitch for 59 mins. Yes he played well, but there was no
fire, drive, passion, etc in the team, and no leader on the pitch,
which would point to the absence of one man being the difference. He
may not be playing his best football, but Goulding's influence on the
rest of the team is undeniable. Sheffield have a habit of embarrassing
Saints, and if Saints play as they did yesterday, they will be
stuffed.

Oh come on.  Is this the same BG that is suposed to be the greatest
half-back in the universe?

Saints should have put at least another 30 on Paris.  So much for vastly
imporoving the points difference.  Paris are knackered with their players
playing too many games at the moment outside of SL.

I didn't see the game but from the reports in the RL papers Saints were
not up to much against a very poor side.  If that is true and they
continue to play like that before BG gets back the game will be up, unless
they get lucky again.

As for Martyn at scrum half, wait till he plays opposite a decent player,
that is if he is fit for the upcoming games.

The only drawback for me if Saints loose a few due to the absence of BG is
that it will just make him an even more big-headed little twerp than he
already is.

Well if he plays as well as he did in the the Challenge Cup semi against
the Oil Sheik from Widnes, then the eagle will have no trouble!

Simple really, Bobby Goulding (BG) thinks (IMO) the sun shines out of his
arse.  If Saints loose a game or two while while is sidelined then its
bound to swell that head of his that seems to be ever increasing in size.
He will think the losses are due to the absence of his almighty presence.
He's a good player but I wish he'd keep his mouth shut.

Yeah, but it hopefully raises a smile :-).  I might get around to changing
it one day.  How about Jack Robinson for Chancellor of the Exchequer?

Err, John have you heard Tommy Martyn's injured too, he has a torn groin
muscle, sounds ***.  We may have to rely on Karl Hammond at scrum half,
it's not looking good.
