    OKB, happy with all that.
    I made my post in rejection to people talking about lynching and drowning people. As I said, I think its going too far.

    All good Crush.
    It certainly wasn’t directed towards you or anyone in particular, mate.
    I’m often on this thread hamming it up about sacking McGreggor so l thought it best l clarify my position.
    Cheers,
    OKB1

    for you, it may very well be jak. for me though, the nightmare is continuing with what we've got at present (in terms of ceo, board and coach).

    The list of people below McGregor for coaching ability would be much shorter than the people above him in ability coaching wise personally J D Will do me .also I think Michael Potter would be an improvement

    The list is endless, but of course there is one obvious candidate with more brain cells and original ideas than Mary...THIS INANIMATE CARBON ROD!!!

    That's a good article pity they didn't say a new coach is needed to make us number 1 .it would take an extremely poor coach for this team to not feature at the point end of the season.thats a problem because these idiots might then extend SUPER COACH for another few years.when will this nightmare end .FREDDY MERCURY would be proud.a nightmare on crown street.

    McGregor is more than capable of stuffing 2018 up.
    We have certainly upgraded our roster but then so have most of the other clubs.
    What makes Melbourne, Cowboys, Broncos, Cronulla, Easts and Parramatta stand apart from the others is the coach.
    That is the ingredient that binds these teams together on and off the field.
    McGregor cannot provide any of that.

    Exactly right , saints can sign the Australia team but nothing wil change under that coaches poor leadership his a terrible coach took over in mid 2014 and been nothing but a adverse failure the lowest points that stand out in my mind are his continued picking of players that don't perform his unbelievably good at turning good players into battering rams the try scoring issues especially 2016 and why on earth was he resigned after the Anzac Day game against the chickens in April the team only managed four wins against poor opposition

    Yeah Brad Arthur is amazing.
    2014 10th
    2015 12th
    2016 14th
    2017 4th
    Thats some record. So what makes Parra stand apart from the others is the coach? You sure it wasn't that their roster was better in 2017?

    The mark of a great coach can be measured in many ways, but getting a team up to win pressure games is a major one - one that Mary continually fails.
    Notice we win games we often aren't expected to win - ie no pressure.
    The loss to the Bulldogs in the final round should've been followed by the termination of Mary's contract - end of story!
    He cannot instil or inspire confidence & he never will.

    If you really want to make comparisons then you have to take into account the mess he walked into and how he systematically turned things around to the point where he finished 4th in 2017.
    It is interesting to note that Arthur presided over a period in the club's history where the Parramatta Board was overthrown and the club was in complete turmoil.
    McGregor on the other hand was given a red carpet, walk up start as head coach with a roster which was pretty good to start with.
    11th and an embarrassing "slide out the back door" 9th don't really stack up to what Arthur has built and achieved at Parramatta after he inherited a total basket case.
    The real question you should be asking is where would we be today if we had Brad Arthur as our coach?
    I guarantee you we would have enjoyed a lot more success than we have endured with McGregor.
    No comparison at all.
    Arthur is in the top 4-5 coaches in the comp. and our bloke is in the bottom 3.
    Chalk and cheese.

    Spot on Dennis. BA has been building nicely on what was once a bloody trainwreck.

    He "systematically" turned things around. 10th/12th/14th/4th. Explain the system? Gradually get worse for 3 years then jump up to top 4? Nice system!
