I have personal experience of a big name player being dropped into the team for the occasional outing. It was a disaster because everybody switched off thinking the star was going to win the game singlehanded.

But you didn't live up to expectations, Dangly?

I wish! Never been a Star performer other than drinking for England.

Anyone else think 'Stinky' and 'Dangly' need to get a room?

The "dropping in a star player" issue reminds me of the podcast referenced previously on this board - the one where an ex player was using data analytics to assess how easily/quickly new players slotted into existing systems, and the individual and team impact this change had (largely negative on both levels).

SBW to Quins? Why? I wouldn't want him here particularly I can't imagine he'd be cheap and I'd rather we spent the money elsewhere.
