No I wouldn't say that, not if they're still at their same level, which many still can do.
No I'm not saying I think "he's doing ok" I'm saying that bar another serious injury I think he can still play at a very high level, probably even a level that we'll be lucky to find someone equal to never mind better for at least another coupe if years. You're making it sound like it's unheard of to sustain that level into the early/mid 30's.
We're not always going to be able to buy players "ready to bang" so have to get a mix of players. Buying young players to bring through and using the older experienced players to do it is how it works in most places. There's not a thing wrong with having players in the 30's or early 20's either. Again you're making out that 28 is when they've peaked and will only go down from there, which as you would say is "absolute wham"
Youíre either misunderstanding what iím saying or intentionally ignoring it.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.
