Schofield did suggest he and Simmo had their moments in his farewell speech to the lads. Not saying they didn't get along, but it was an interesting comment.I actually don’t agree with the comments Schoey and Simmo didn’t get a long. Under Simmo Schoey footy got better. His footy got better/consistent after Simmo came into the club. You could say that Simmo gave him a defined role.
Schoeys issue with not getting a game was due to team balance and having two better key defenders vying for his spot. Emac was essentially AA quality stopper and Tom Barrass was one of the hottest young key defensive prospect few years ago.
A man to man is always interesting & history says there is mutual respect. You dont need to 'get along' to work together very successfully.Schofield did suggest he and Simmo had their moments in his farewell speech to the lads. Not saying they didn't get along, but it was an interesting comment.
When its Gov, Barrass, Schofield we looked better.Since it was only a 1 point result, I'd like to think he could've made a difference to the score, perhaps preventing a few Pies scores.
