Bulldogs fan here: too far , how about Wiley park station?
A bit of trivia for you. Wiley Park station is different from every other station on the Bankstown line. They were all "island platforms" - that is they are between the up and down lines. Marrickville, Dulwich Hill, Canterbury and Campsie were moved across to make way for the freight line from Enfield, but you can still see the original island platforms on the Up (city direction) lines. Wiley Park was added much later and, because the tracks were already down, was built as platforms either side of the line.
Because of these changes all ticket offices were moved from the platforms to the overhead pedestrian bridges.

No Fred Briggs or Billy Ngawini? Your list is invalid. Isolate for 2 weeks and re-think your life please.
You need to go back to school, learn to read and log back on to the thread

Don't think Thurston can be counted though as really didn't play enough games with us? Other than that I think that's pretty much spot on from '99 onwards
I’d take an 04 Thurston over Braith though.

I know some have said Utai over Bmoz. Hard to disagree but Utai was exposed by Matt Singh and he was really never the same after that.

Yeah. Can see that. Was never a massive massive fan of Braith if I'm honest. Clearly anyone would take Thurston over anybody else really, just question whether he actually played enough for us?

I'd agree with you about Bmoz though hard not to pick Utai.

Hey be careful, every time someone signs up in the northern hemisphere people will assume it's me and u get banned.
Stay straight, keep eyes on those around you and don't share food and water.

Now that's out of the way.
The team is ok. My main issue is composition and what roles they are playing.
I personally think Silva was more dynamic at the back, but patterns is a popular player around here so it's just preference. Either way.

Utai. Hard to judge. Was amazing first couple of years, but then other teams solved him and he couldn't make reserve grade (why didn't he move to centre?).

Lamb was a goalkicker, so do you need el Masri!?
This is preference. Personally I would take Barba and his attack there and cop a 70% goal kicker in Lamb, as opposed to a slow small winger who kicked at 80. But again, preference.

This next bit is more about team composition and roles.
I'd swap Ennis for SBW because Hetherington could go 80mins, and probably Mason for Jackson. Off the bench it's more punch. darren Smith was utility value so perhaps having him on the bench and finding a new centre is an idea too. A lot of people have been talking about Holland lately, due to his line break record, although SBW might be able to play centre?

you pumped about Thommo!? Or is it too big a super league loss?

Nasheed how many threads did you make last week. 50? 100? 1000? Quality not quantity. Not many of them did last.

The northern hemisphere is not the issue Nasheed.
It's frauds like you who pretend you're in Sydney when you're in Europe.
How convenient that leeds_doggie's account is brand new and allegedly from the UK...

GeeZus, outlawyering has really burnt you hard. Couldn't even stick to your own olive branch.
So now Leeds dog is an Estonian?
Yesterday you said Abu was my friend. So he's Estonian too!?
Also said the mods are my friends. They Estonian?
Everyone's an Estonian to you! Estonians everywhere controlling the Kennel.

And do I sound like an Estonian to you?
What's more believable? That I'm an eastern European posting on an Aussie forum or a street rat from Granville, raised in the rough streets of Breakfast point. A past that built my character. Where I learnt to shank, smooth talk bitches and the law.
In those days, it was needed for survival.

this whole paranoia is amusing. The funniest thing is I've often talked Arabic on the forum.

It's the ice pipe.
Some of that walter white goodness and I'm typing like a chimp.
Most of my threads get multiple pages. The only fail was the recipe one. Probably my fault asking for cooking advice from a bunch of bored dogs supporters from lakemba

But you didn’t agree to said olive branch?

Nasheed you couldn’t burn a sausage :-).

You’re the only person in Estonia.
Perhaps with multiple personalities and a penchant for the ❌ mind you :-).
Doesn’t make you Estonian.
Big deal - you’re in Tallinn - just update your profile and say that - then no one cares about the rest of the garbage you peddle.

Paranoia? Nah mate, just love calling you out for the bullshit artist you are :-).

I do have multiple personalities, but only one account on the kennel.
Why do you even think I'm in Estonia? It's the most random thing. I'm curious.
I googled. Borders are closed anyway. Maybe myself, Abu, Leeds dog and the mods all snuck in to post?
