Is it just me in my old age getting cranky or does anyone else on here agree that Liam's sickening explanations about why he had to leave the Scarlets for a new challenge/experience etc are getting pretty pathetic. Apparently he wasn't enjoying his rugby at PYS - strange one that as I don't recall seeing him playing any rugby at PYS since his return from Saracens. Funny old world.

He was absolutely a breath of fresh air when he first started plsying for the Scarlets.Fresh from the steelworks and the premiership,his willingness to attack was a pleasure to watch.Now his powers have waned on the field;cheap shots and petulance have long since crept into his play.Once a rough diamond,now a plastic sparkler.Here today and gone tomorrow,like the trashy celebrity culture he now embodies.

I think his partner is influencing his decisions. Moved to Saracens, where she lived. Move to Cardiff where she now lives. It'll be France next.

He really is doing his best to become unpopular with us isn’t he?

Disappointing to read those comments, he became a liability in the end with all the needless cards he was picking up. Certainly wasn’t worth the money we were lying him and tbh I’m glad he’s gone.

Seems like quite an overreaction. From what I can see all he said was he wasn't enjoying his rugby at the end of the season. Why is that an issue? And pretty much every player who has ever moved clubs states 'new challenge'. I think people are a bit over sensitive.

I strongly suspect the truth is that Scarlets were not prepared to make him a counter offer to the one he had got from Cardiff. Why would they when he rarely plays and they already have three Welsh International fullbacks in their squad? I suspect Sanjay is trying to come up with a plausible alternative story.

He was under contract wasn’t he? Didn’t we just agree to let him leave early? Under new player banding i don’t think regions can outbid each other? I may well be wrong mind

He had a contract to play for us this season. His second spell was a huge disappointment so we were happy to release him. It’s a shame that he seemed to lose a lot of the commitment and motivation he had in his first spell as he was on course to become a club legend.

How could they make a counter offer? His salary is determined by the pay banding system

He was a very good player for us sorry to see him go. He certainly wasn’t value for money recently but did have bad luck with injuries. We have some really good youngsters who can step into the breach. Some comments over the top I wish him well playing for Cardiff and Wales. 
Isn’t it about time however that a player with team Wales is offered to us, surely if Reffell and LRZ become available and have to sign for Welsh region then they should be offered to us first. 

She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Gutted when he left for Saracens. This time? Meh. Guaranteed he’ll score a try against us mind. Always happens with ex players.

I think it would have just been nice if he acknowledged that there may have been things he'd have done differently and he may have contributed towards things not going particularly smoothly.

Therein lies the problem with social media, there are times when you need a thick skin (see above for example). As I recall some things were said about Liam about his lack of game time and it seemed he took them to heart and the whole thing soured.                              
His second stint here was a disappointment to all as he was such a popular figure and I we had hoped he would have stayed for the final season so we could finally see the Liam that we all loved to see. Sadly this wasn't to be and I wish him well, (except against us of course)!

Its my understanding that there is some width in the salary bands and that teams can also offer a top up. Otherwise why would any Welsh 38 player change teams if there was no salary increase available?
