That was Goulding
Your joking right? He was a wingers dream
Ah! But you're missing the point. He wasn't Polynesian. Meds only has the hots for Polynesian players. Anyone from Wigan is inherently bad. Quite a strange attitude for someone purporting to be a Wigan fan, but I'll let you draw your own conclusions.

I’ve always said gilly is overrated, good player but he isn’t top draw for me.
And it was Faz who made our left said lethal. Faz is sharp and one of the best at running good lines, he would always be looking to pass the ball as well before or after breaking the line of defence.
He made gilly and budgie look good
Faz is a good player, but sorry this bit is laughable.

If I had a pound for every time he should have passed but held on, I would have a tidy sum.
Your mixing Faz with Gildart there ;)
That’s my thinking. I’ve never known faz not to pass

Explain how that isn't true. You never have a bad word to say about any islanders but offer ridiculous levels of criticism when it comes to Wigan born players. "Goulding never passed" is your latest masterpiece. He was one of the best Winger's centres we've had in Superleague. Only Carmont and Gleason could be said to be his equal or better at putting their winger away.

Name all these players then, by the way, one of my all time favourite players was BJ Mather so wrong again Bamber Gascoigne :D

I thought Medlocke never watches the matches, and so all of his comments are for comedic purposes? I have certainly always read them as that - so expect him still be criticising Lockers for years to come.

Well let's start with Lockers, Goulding, Powell and Harry Smith for the Wiganers and on the praising islanders side we'll throw in Willie Isa and Adrian Lam. Those are all literally from the last few weeks.

Now you give me the recent cases of praising Wiganers/criticising Islanders.

By the way, BJ Mathers is from 30 years ago. Is that the only example you could think of? Must do better...

Thomas Leuluai
Bevan French
Mitch Clark

and

Liam Marshall
Jake Bibby
Chris Hankinson
Brad O'Neill

I can honestly say I haven't had a favourite player since Andy Coley, But it's looking like Kai Pearce-Paul could be the next one

He's a troll Flash. He says things to get a rise, no other reason. Don't fall for it. Its how he gets his kicks.
