I’m actually hoping for Watts to do something stupid again just to move on from whatever is happening here
Me too. Or Jesse Hogan - so we can all pile over to that thread and forget the recent past here.

Now that I think about it, it’s been a disappointment of an off season overall.

The blokes skills have never been in question, and never winning the 50/50 ball is a symptom, the root cause of that is he is soft as butter and was never 100% committed to footy. The most suprising part of that article to me is that he went on a solo 2 week training session, sounds ominous but I guess the proof will be in the pudding round 1.
Lots of swimming involved, I'd imagine.

He'll play a few decent games and then the port coaching staff will be lauded as visionaries, then he'll drop off again. Reminds me of Howe who played his last 1.5 - 2 years with us in defence and was decent, went forward at the pies, then sent back and has been great ever since. Buckley was lauded for finding his niche spot, for some reason a lot of people still, including commentators, have no idea Howe played a lot down back for us.

I've got the Port v Norf game on in the background while doing some work, I just heard the statement "Pressure put on by Watts" surprised, I looked up in time to see Jack half heartedly throw one hand out to try and tackle someone as they comfortably waltzed around him ... I'd say never change Jack ... but we all know you won't
