I see the club are trying to talk Nico out of professional retirement. Whats peopls thoughts on this? Does he still have the pace? I liked Nico but he never got the service he deserved in the end as a out and out try scoring winger.

More on this in tonight's mail.

May have got his confidence back while playing at dalton, with a good centre he will be a great signing. Deffo worth a shot.

Looked to me like he had lost some of his pace when I watched him on Saturday. Hard to say after only watching 1 game I know but if he has lost a yard of pace is really gonna offer anymore than whats already there?

Even if has lost a yard or 2 i bet he will still be one of the quickest in the league.

 

He needs a centre who will pass and not run him out of the play.

 

Sign him up i say


Rip the bludgers heads off!

Judging by that article, you're looking at signing Shaun Ainscough - who's been out in Australia for the last two years. Top capture if you pull it off.

Would wiper/nico centre and winger work? Surely wiper wouldn't out pace nico would he?

Nico - No thank you. Been a good un in the past, but lost all confidence in his own ability, and spent majority of games walking with hands on hips. Ironic cheers could be heard from the terraces when he caught a high ball, simply cause it meant he had to drive the ball in. Seemed like we were playing with 12 men most of the time, as he never scooted from dummy half.

Sean Ainscough - happy with that, fast, hard running and working, and worth a punt

There isn't really one, he just fits the description of being a winger playing in Aus for the last couple of seasons and he's back in England looking for a club

But its the truth though, and since this is a public forum people are entitled to their opinions regarding individuals, or are we al meant to follow like sheep and never say anything negative about someone

The last 3 years post injury he lacked confidence, now if a player cant regain it in that type of time frame they never will.
