I'm mostly concerned with how Robbo's words could bother anyone this much. Robbo comes across as a bloke that has a bottle of shiraz for breakfast every day, why would his subpar analysis surprise anyone? 

The only reason he still has a job is because his words spark furious debate like this. Don't get sucked in!

These thing aren't mutually exclusive. Don't denigrate people who prefer whisky with their weetbix. We might still know football.

Is Patrick Cripps no 1 player over Clayton Oliver? According to Robbo in his top 50, Cripps is No 1 L Neale no 2 and Clayton Oliver no 3.

Cripps should never ever have won the Brownlow, and he was third in Contested Ball and Clearances. Clarry was NO 1 IN CONTESTED BALL, AND NO 1 IN CLEARANCES. To me then this should have read, 1 Clayton Oliver, 2 Neale and 3 Cripps.

Oliver is head and shoulders the better of the 3 IMO

I feel your rage but my response to Robbo would be...

Oliver - B anf F in a Premiership year/team.

Case closed in historical terms.   Sadly as someone else on here said,  Cripps will be another Fyfe , missing the ultimate prize, or even a significant finals c.v.

Another thing Oliver has over him.

I got pressured into watching Kojo on Disney plus last night, and i noticed that rival dog Balto got all the credit for an act of heroism when actually Kojo was the rightful hero dog. I don't think either dog really cared either way. But i do think Disney Plus is slightly over-rated.

The word 'bias' according to the Cambodge English Dictionary means: "the action of supporting or opposing a particular person or thing in an unfair way, because of allowing personal opinions to influence your judgment."

A person who holds or forwards such an opinion is 'biased'. This is not about Clarry - he is the greatest footballer to have ever graced a field in a billion years - it's about this creeping use of people saying that they are or may be 'bias'. 

@Demonstone: you've been slacking off on policing this one. 

 

Sorry, I should have said ‘biased’, not ‘bias’.

I understand your frustration. It’s like reading ‘I think it’s really f*#k annoying when people go on about spelling’. When clearly it’s meant to read ‘I think it’s really f*cking annoying…’

Sincerest apologies. 🤣

I like robbo, he's passionate about the game and clearly loves football.

But twice a year he releases his top 50 and reminds us that he's a dumb [censored]

I like Robb and reckon he could spin a good yarn, as long as the story isn't too complex and no more than a couple of paragraphs long.

Please don't judge him Demonlanders' until we establish whether that's Bourbon, Irish, or Scotch.

Shai Bolton has to be the most overrated player I’ve seen in a long time. 
Dines out on goal and mark of the week. 
Goes missing more than kids in the 80s. 

Agree 100% and not only that has missed goals from less than 20m out on the run with no-one in front of him on multiple occasions.

    WIZARD333'S TRAINING REPORT I went down and it was locked out for first hour but could see through fence then allowed in. Max Gawn ran laps — it looks like a 3 to 4 week injury. Andy Moniz-Wakefield ran laps. Blake Howes was taken off late as was on restricted minutes. Adam Tomlinson loudest on track and a leader - surprised me but won't be in best 25. Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

    DEE ZEPHYR'S TRAINING REPORT Morning all. First time at Goschs for a while, there’s a scoreboard set up which I’ve never seen here before. Possible match sim? Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
