Struggling to come to terms with this. Feels like an end of an era.

Garthwaires Not up to it imo. Noah Balta is our best hope. Has the rin and the drive to play a similar role.

At least we have a few months now to get him ready. Solves the 'where to play balta' question...

Great timing. With some $$ free during trade week I'm sure there would have been a quality KPD willing to come here.

Still, one of the best footballers to have ever thrown a pair of boots on. Thanks for all you did.

Will be a shame to NEVER SEE HIM ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD AGAIN.  That's really sad for us but good for him.  Will be interesting to see what he does with his freedom.
