I don't think many Wire fans would be too upset to see Gleeson go. When we signed him from Saints they got Lyon as a replacement, the rest is history. Gleeson seems to have the kind of attitude problem that's been rife at warrington for too long.
A move to Wigan would probably be good business all round as he might find some heart playing for his home town club.
Gleeson on form is an awesome player he just ain't showing it for us.



We all are aware of the Rumours Arch. Cullen has not acted to sort this Cancer within Warrington. Right at the top of the Chopping block should be Eddie's hero Lee Briers. Eddie should perhaps check a few things out. GFor me however, I'm more interested in the performance on the pitch and Briers and Gleeson consistently fail to hit the mark.

Show them no pity. But those who do not wish to go on that journey, we will not send. As for the others, I expect you to rock their world.

It is also Just possible that an international Centre like Matt King deserves over 200K a year. Why is it that Two bit football players are deserving of 40K a week, and a superb athlete like King or Barrett or Brent Webb, is somehow a party to salary cap breaches. It stinks.

Im happy to see League players retire at 32 with Business interests and perhaps their property paid off. When I was on holiday last year in Greece a Stoke City fan showed me an area where a Stoke city player had a Villa. It was superb, costing about 600K FFS. So when you see that you just know that King is deserving of his 250K per annum.

We need to reward international players better and International appearances should attract al least a 20,000 fee

If this comes off it will be a massive signing for the Warrington club.

To sign a current Origin and Test player like King will strengthen the club no end, it could mean that someone 'big' is leaving the club - Gleeson looks the one to me.

If Gleeson stays I believe it could be Fai'filli that gets the chop.

Not sure this team would come under the salary cap.

Briers, Morley and Gleeson are on a fair wedge with Johnson and Reardon not far behind I bet!

If you add 3 highly paid imports in Monaghan and Hicks then Matt King then I wouldnt think you could get that under the Salary Cap limit.

Add Vinnie and Louis Anderson to that list.

I think the departures lounge at the HJ will be busy before 2008.
I wouldn't be at all suprised to see Gleeson go, he's been a turkey for us.

Since when have you required evidence for those types of claims?

People have been banging on about the "Exact" amounts paid to Wigan players for years. You don't seem to appreciate it now the boot is on the other foot.

If you want to know how much he is on, ask Brian, he has connections.

The really sad thing is that you are probably going to be forced to offload 4 or 5 good young British players in order to accommodate King under the cap. Assuming of course that Warrington will always try to stay under the cap.
