  1. Good trip down memory lane. Its true that in the 1990s , performance was hindered by poor organization. Its also true that under Len Julians with that squad GM may have conquered Africa.

  2. Let the players and tech bench give their best without fear and undue pressure, with that you will silence those fancy talkers called usb.
