    Langmacks grasp of the English Language makes Kearney look like Shakespear.But kearney has a better team than Langmack ever did. I think they are probably equal.

    Kearney is clearly the worst - and I haven't forgotten Langmack.

    18 months into a three year contract.... very disappointed that Parra signed the chump, and that members of our Board still think Kearney has something to offer.

    Oh well, election time is rolling around, and the Board can be held accountable for their appointments (including Osborne as CEO :roll:).

    Ian Millward was so bad that I had forgot about him, he seems to have been even worse in England.

    He lost a game 70-0 then lost a game 75-0.

    Can't believe no one stumbled upon the real answer.

    I do hate how many times he says the word "again" when he is interviewed

    Tom Raudonikis - 117 played 38 wins 77 losses 1 draw 33.3% winning record
    Peter Sharp - 124 played 46 wins 76 losses 2 draws 37.1% winning record
    Craig Coleman - 72 played 20 wins 52 losses 0 draws 27.8% winning record
    Terry Lamb - 50 played 16 wins 33 losses 1 draw 32% winning record

    Langmack wins it so far for longevity of ineptitude.

    He's cringeworthy to listen to. Has not even the faintest clue about anything. Cliches are all he can communicate in. How the hell is this idiot a coach?

    Raudonikis at Wests in the early 90s was less than ordinary as well.

    Langmack was horrible. But He had a f**king horrible squad, Only Bellamy or Benny could get a 50% with that squad and i still dont think they would. :lol:

    Certainly does not look out of place. Poor Parra fans.

    If we're going to rely on statistics, do you guys know that someone as well regarded as Cleary has lost more games than he has won.

    As for Kearney, isn't he statistically the worst Parra coach in several decades?

    Interesting stat, Kearneys former colleague at the Storm, Michael Maguire, has as many wins as Kearney but in 26 less games.

    It is clear to anyone that Kearney isn't good enough. Which brings me to a logical point. Who at the Eels thought he was good enough to hire, and why did they think that. Did they really put that much weight into winning something with NZ? That's vastly different to club footy and he had Supercoach holding his hand anyway.

    My theory is Duncan and Pirtek influenced the board to appoint Kearney.

    He was probably a very good assistant coach, with Bellamy telling him what to do and coming up with ideas, and Maguire doing all the difficult assistant stuff Kearney just had to handle the easy stuff. Almost like an extra team member between the coaches and the players
