Ah, was just gonna mention Braaten...

Wilhelmson & Braaten ones looked fantastic at the time.

Yeah the Wilhemson and Braaten one's were the first montages I'd ever seen of a player we were signing, the excitement at seeing them play was palpable!  What a let down.  Although they signed at exactly the wrong time in our Prem history, they may have done a job in the championship, Wilhemson must have had something to get so many caps for Sweden who are no mugs (despite having Elmander).

That's not good to read, difficult to comment on it without speaking out of turn so I wont.

Our perception of all BWFC (or other sports) "heroes" is only ever what we see publicly, nobody really knows what they are like off the pitch or in day to day life.

Shuts Salford fans up moaning about how much we are throwing about. I can imagine he'll be on similar to Sarcevic & Comley combined.

I like Lowe but not arsed at him going. We had a squad of players with losing mentalities - that needed replacing

Politic needs to learn to run with his head if he's to go as far as we hope he can.

Darcy is a player, no doubt about it.

I agree. Plays with his head up, and seems to know where team mates are. Politic may be a bit stronger and has an eye for goal, but I like the maturity that Darcy shows even as a kid.

With time I reckon both come be really good for us.

Braaten had shades of being great but was ultimately shite.

 Wilhelmson had a blinder in Belgrade and has a fit mrs so he gets a pass.

Elmander I reckon you could a longer compilation of him putting his thumb up more than his goals, the Swedish shithouse

to be fair, there'd be two montages, one under Megson, one under Coyle

you'd sign him off the latter

Loyalty & commitment were never in doubt with Lowe, so lots of praise for him.

However, he's never been a game changer, rarely passes forward and doesn't move the ball quick enough.

I'm sure that Evatt would have kept him if he fitted into his style of play but the fact that he didn't speaks volumes.

Good luck and thanks for everything, Jason.

I’d sign him off his wolves goal from different angles that’s it

He'll be on a few quid too. Never a game changer is probably about right - and it this level I'd be wanting a bit more from someone who's on top whack.

Lowe gave everything on the pitch and was a great servant/ambassador off it so no complaints and good luck to him.  He's the sort of player I wouldnt be against having in the squad in the championship as a defensive midfielder in a backs to the wall relegation scrap.  But if you're hoping to dominate games at the top end of any division, you have to question what he brings other than leadership and grit.  It still grates though that a genuine League One player ends up at Salford who have nothing going for them other than money and being local.

Remember seeing the seal run by bratten when we signed him on you tube .

Went on to score the winner in the french cup final after leaving us

I thought Jason Lowe was our best player last season.

Obviously not the type of player for "Brand Evatt"

Good luck to him.

We move on.

Aye, granted he didnt have much to beat but he gave it a shot at right, left and centre back along with midfield

Liked him

We say all we ask for is they do their best

My mate was yts at Bolton. Captain of town team and a seriously good player. Huge Bolton fan and was offered the chance to go down to man utd and Liverpool as a kid  but rejected to stay at Bolton

dean crombie bullied him and made his life a misery so much so that he left the club after 3 months and spent the rest of his working life working in call centers where he still is today and apart from the odd charity game with the lads has never played football again it affected him that badly  

 

real class act was crombie off the pitch 👍🏼👍🏼

You've got to be mentally strong to be a pro footballer, beleive me.

Mounts will back me up, I was at PNE on trial and I've seen our man Mr Allardyce bully the kids to a pulp. Also that Anus John Beck was worse & he was 1st team manager.

Probably are nice blokes but people change at football youve got to be tough to progress.

He’s as tough as old boots mate. Hard as fucking nails as well. 
 

Don’t dispute what you are saying as a few of my other mates were pro’s but honestly he made the lads life a living hell. Nobody knew why. His dad went to the club a couple of times and they weren’t remotely interested. I suspect if it happened nowadays something would have been done about it and he probably would have been the one to leave the club. Crombie that is

You don't get the best out of players by bullying them, especially youth and scholars coming through the ranks, i get its a tough business and they will need to work hard and give 100% commitment, its better to coach and educate them imo.

Agreed,

I rented a house to Richard Norton who at the time was head groundsman at BWFC, he described Sam as a verbal bully.
