Swanky wingers

Post by tripeandonions » Sat Sep 29, 2018 10:41 am

So having just heard Mr Healey use the word "swanky" as a general descriptor for some wingers (he was holding up Josh Bassett as an example of non-swanky). I wondered what that fine purveyor of verbal bilge means by "swanky"; and more to the point, who are the wingers, past and present, who would register most highly on the Swankometer??

Bassett should be in the England squad!
Examples of non swanky - Cohen, Luger, Lewsey, Robinson.
Example of swanky - Healey.
All in my opinion of course... :smt023

Any takers for Mavis9? I've not seen her on here before. Maybe she's a figment of BFG's imagination.

I never was a lover of the petulant little scally.

Hang on boys. !!

You have a very short memory !!

Without Healey, we would never have won either European Cup ..

He was 100% instrumental in both victories, without him, 2 losses.
So if he's swanky, thats ok by me...

...........and maybe I'd still have fingernails sweating on titles, proper ones, no playoffs, whilst scally boy sat out suspension for kicking Kevin Putt and a Sale winger?

Healey will always be a controversial figure I’m afraid.
