Yeah, the good players should all be in the forward line or midfield, unlike spuds like Rance, Vlastuin, Houli, Grimes, and the like.

A tall, fast guy sprinting out from the back 50 and then roosting it 60-70m Yeah, you're right, that'd be a terrible waste.
It is a waste he could be roosting goals at 60
He was playing as a lockdown on ratagolia
Thats is a waste he should be doing damage in the forward line not playing a lockdown role on a forward.

Geez you lot.Some of you couldn't wait to land Balta in the backline.The next Rance they said.One game and he looked a duck out of water(rightly so) and now you question why in the backline.
He's not a natural backman (although we could maybe make him into one in time), doubt he'll ever make it as a forward ... looks like a natural follower tl me, and his contested ball numbers (from the games he has playex on the ball) strongly support this. Unleash him on the ball to create chaos and drive the ball forward.

We need him to be the next Richo or Koutoufides so a position in the BL should be a no goer. Sick of all our players having their aggressive and natural attacking instincts coached out of them bc they need a defensive side to their games. We need unpredictability in our boys bc atm we are as simple as a Golden book to read.

No choice but to put him in the backline on Friday night.
