And that is the crux of our problem now and for most of the last 40 years.
Are there any top coaches in England that might want to try their hand in the NRL?
i personnally think JASON D .is the man we need here but the old boys club is a very large reason it wont happen and i dont want to hear that hes not proven because in my eyes he is very much proven .................
I don't see him as a genuine upgrade from Mary. There are better options out there.
For sure, no to griffin
About the same
Maguire sacked and griffin sacked for GOOD reasons
Look to future!!!
Maguire is a great coach. The problem is that he is so intense that players can only handle him for so long.
The first four years he was at Souths we went from a team on the verge of the eight to genuine contenders and premiers. By about the fifth year, you could see that the side had been trained to the verge of exhaustion and they just needed some new ideas around the place and a freshen up in the way they trained.
So my point basically is that if you signed Madge, with your squad I think you would go down a similar path. You would be immediate, serious contenders but after about four or five years you’d need to look for another coach. It’d be a great four years though.
When you guys got rid of McGuire I thought it was a poor decision. I thought your squad was an aging one that needed refreshing, and that a rookie coach was an awful idea.
Moral of the story: I knew f**k all about the situation.
I thought the same thing tbh.
I heard rumblings of discontent and I’ve always been of the opinion that he was a top tier coach and the board should have backed him over any of the players that had issues.
Fact is, he needed to change up a few of his methods because he’d burnt out a few in the squad and we desperately needed a change. Sadly he was unable to do that.
As I said before though, when he first lands at your team he is fantastic. If the Dragons signed him you would notice a change in fitness and intensity from game 1. I think, if you wanted to compare him to a coach of the past it would be someone like Brian Smith. You get four great years out of him before you burn out and need to move on.
Maybe he’s learned a thing or two from how his time at Souths ended as well. I have no doubt that he is a top tier coach though and if he lands at the right club he’ll win a premiership again.
On top of that, he’s a great guy.
IF YOUR A DIFFERENT KIND OF RABBIT DOES THAT MAKE YOU A HARE ......THEN YOUR FOLLOWING THE WRONG TEAM MY FRIEND ...SERIOUSLY GOOD LUCK THIS YEAR YOUR A BIG CHANCE .....
Thats the impression i got Rabbit.
I'd be happy to sign him up for 2/3 years.
Cleary staying on at Wests...
I'd say that your on the money. First bring him in for one or two years with Bennett as head coach and after that he can sign a five year deal as head coach.
Where at bargain bin
Like 16 and 17 no idea why the melancholy.....bartender!!!!
Griffin would do a better job at coaching.
Get someone, anyone other than the incompetent assclown we have at the moment would be an upgrade.
