Discussion in 'Newcastle Knights' started by Still Nutty, Aug 20, 2019.
Yeah I don't remember seeing it anywhere
My apologies it wasn’t official.
People were asking questions about it on the team talk thing on Facebook and the Knights kept responding that it’s only rumours and that Herman has been outspoken that he is committed to the club in 2020
I pretty much echo the thoughts of most here.
I will look back on Brown's time and be thankful of the hard work he put in to completely rebuild us and put us in a position where we could see success on the horizon.
I always felt he wouldn't be the guy to take us to the promise land so I think this is good timing and really sets up for an exciting couple of years ahead.
This next coach hiring is going to be one of our most important. Whoever we get is either taking us to the next level or has the potential to reset everything again for us, which would be torture.
Good luck to Brownie, he himself deserves some success for what he's had to do over the last few years as well.
I’m hoping and I think Wests will be in the ears of players who we want but might be considering a ship jump with Brown going and that they will see that we push forward without a new reshuffle.
Death by Noodle.
Whoosh has liked your post. I rest my case.
Looking through the window I think Brown did a great job. Yes there were wooden spoons but what else did you expect with that Roster? There is a reason it was called a /rebuild'. Brown can be credited for two things:
1) Recruitment. There was a period there when Newcastle was one of those clubs no player wanted to go to. He's managed to get some stars there now and they are on the up and up. Signing Ponga surely will go down as the greatest signing in history. When Pearce left the Roosters there were a few clubs with ostensibly better prospects (Manly, Cronulla) but he chose Newcastle.
2) He didn't let the losing becoming a habit. There's a propensity for losing to become culture. The Titans are an example;. They signed all sorts of stars but the constant losing rotted away the clubs culture. Not so with Newcastle. Brown [patiently and strategically rebuilt the club and morale never seemed to be a problem.
Nice touch from Phil Gardner to precede Brown in the press conference with what I think the majority of those who support Newcastle would agree with, about the character, professionalism and selflessness that Brownie has always displayed in word and deed.
Like many here, I think Brown has been the person we have needed here for 3 out of the last 4 years - I would like to be able to say 4 out of 4 but the next phase for the club and this team, it needs something different to take that next step - the class to recognise that, put your hand up with dignity and say so speaks volumes for the person he is.
I truly wish him all the best and I actually think he would make a great head of football at some club that needs that type of operator.
Thanks Brownie - as much as this year has not lived up to expectations, you gave it a shot and you will be remembered well for all the good you have done for this team and this club
...and I like his candour in the presser as well - particularly re Bennett
It was sublime. The rosters Bennett has had at his disposal a drovers dog would have won more Premierships.
Brown on NRL 360 right now
Sad part is, Whoosh is almost more credible than you around here.
When are we signing SBW again?
We love ya work Yosh.
Keep it up!
You gotta admit, we should still sign the lad. My opinions are priceless.
Haha that they definitely are mate
Just watched Brown on NRL360. What an absolute class act.
How is Sione going this week against an actual a centre?
Shithouse, but you're an absolute soft c**k for hiding from that post until it suited you, lol.
You'll hide again, too.
Awww you blew your load early when Sione was up against a 114kg forward.
How is he going this week? LOL
I've already answered your question. He's got a few mates out there in the same boat, too.
Is there any truth to the Pezet/Moses plan to arsehole Brown out and get O’Brien in?
I can’t believe that Gardner is letting it happen.
