Una Healy is dating Ben Foden - he could pay a visit to Parc y Scarlets and fall in love with the place!!

The announcement of the announcement by the Scarlets in itself, raised hopes of a signing. Everyone was excited. 22,000 views on this thread.
 
For SM to then start a prank, fuelled the hysteria, yeah I know where it was coming from, but then when chinese rumours start and names start to appear, Phil Waugh for example, you start hoping there's something going on.
 
Yeah I should know better, I should know not to waste my time on here. You all seem to be avid fans of the Smellymike show, well I didnt enjoy this particular episode, might just switch off for a while.

OK everyone, take a step away from the keypoard for a minute.  Grab a mug of coffee and ponder this.

In my humble opinion, the news about teh Saturdays was BIGGER than learing about a new signing.  Much BIGGER. 

Being able to hold concerts with artists like the Saturdays coming to The Park is far moire significant than learning that we have dipped into our pockets to sign someone, because it shows that a new income stream has opened up.  An income stream that will lead to our continued growth, and the ability to hold on to our quality players. An income stream that will grow to enable us to AFFORD the signings we want to make in the future.

Money is everything, and this is a story about money coming in to the business, not money going out. This is excellent news - rejoice mun, its for the club. Smile
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

Was there an "announcement of the announcement" by the Scarlets?  We had Tommo telling us RP would be on the radio with him to give him an exclusive news, but that was it wasn't it?  I fail to see how we can criticize anyone in this scenario (I'm struggling even to criticize smelly).  All Tommo was doing was advertising his show and telling us what he had lined up.

I mean to expect a signing to be announced on a little local radio show, I mean do we have any form for that all at?

Personally I think people need to get a grip.

I agree, really is tremendous that other avenues are being explored and delivered upon. No dead ends but a star rated success.Star

It's potentially very good news, if the Scarlets can continue to offer concerts of this stature AND make a healthy profit on them.

Having said that, I'd still have preferred the news to be a signing such as Bakkies Botha!

whereas it's good news that money will be coming in,it is also excellent news that we have secured 21 signings of our current crop,but you can't get away from the fact that we need a forward to complement these boys,we are about to have another season where have won nothing we couldn't fill the ground for the visit of leicester i think that is because most of our floating support never thought we had a chance of beating them after the tuning we took in welford road,add to that the way we were murdered at the liberty and perpignan and it doesn't bode well for increasing the fan base.it's all well and good to pat ourselves on the back with the academy but even the leicesters and leinsters of this world bolster their squads with quality,it doesn't have to be a botha or the like ,how many people had heard of waldrom before leicester snapped him up.speculate to accumulate.

Great post Tondu, best in this thread! ClapClapClapClapClapClapClapClapClapClap 
 
If some newbie had posted such a wind up, he would have been shot to pieces and Smellymike you would have fired the first shots.
 
I'm glad we've got a concert, its a progressive move, but I'm deperate for us to sign a couple of forwards, and for you to falsely raise hopes like that is out of order imo.
 
Others may see it as a witty prank, I wasnt impressed.
 
 
 
 
Well said Tim.
To knowingly and deliberately mislead fellow Scarlets supporters to have their hopes raised of an announcement regarding player recruitment is shameful and pathetic. Some supporters are concerned about rugby and have deep concerns about receruitment of experienced players to complement our rising stars.
Fantastic that we have re-signed our youngsters, but if we do not get the balance right it could all backfire. If the pack continues to get pushed around and come off second best (against ML opposition) the experience could be detrimental and not in the best interests of the further development of our youngsters. They would be better off going elsewhere now. It is essential, and evident for several seasons,  that we must have a couple of hard, no-nonsense forwards to steady things and get us on the front foot.
 
The question I always ask is, why is it that we seem to be able to develop the backs, but when it comes to hard nose, no nonsense forwards, especially locks, we never seem to be able to develop them? Confused
