I totally get where you're coming from...you need to show the players we are a hard-working no-nonsense club, and i think benching Z sent that message.

but at some level there is a trade-off between how much that message helps your team and how much Z helps your team.

putting Z in the lineup and even resigning him are things that are easily justifiable IMO (assuming you really want to win)


maybe he can teach BOB some english, and work his way into the team that way

kidding, hes not a team player...but you get my point the reward is worth the cost.
