    Well there you go, BA is aware we need to strengthen our pack:

    "They have identified a need for a big body in the front row and, while there have been suggestions Canberra Raiders prop Junior Paulo wants to return home, the Eels are no closer to finding a solution.

    "It would be nice to have a real big body up front but the really good front rowers are taken up and clubs just don't hand over good players for nothing," Arthur said.

    "For the last 12 or 18 months we've been on the look to improve that area but we have to make sure we get the right person and also the right people have to be available. You can't just go pluck them from a club.""

    We need to find a fringe 1st grader and turn him into a great 1st grader. Like a Paul Vaughn type.

    I think we are thinking Evans might develop into something great but not just yet.

    I can't believe we don't have million dollar props to go with our million dollar wingers and million dollar backrowers and million dollar halves and million dollar reserves

    But he looked at Napa. McLean. Klemmer. Vaughan the previous year...so he hasn't changed his tune at all

    Yeah because if he says in the preseason "I don't think our forward pack is good enough. They aren't going to compete well," then that would go down a treat, wouldn't it.

    What the f**k do you expect him to say, ffs!

    All clubs are not created equal. Not a hard thing to understand.

    Unless you're a Parra fan, it seems.

    0 from 5 is not great. It’s clearly unacceptable.

    But I’m yet to read anything sensible from @TheRam @hineyrulz, @Glenneel or @Avenger on our predicament.

    Just unintelligent whiney bullshit where you:

    1. Fail to properly explain the reasons for our 0 and 5 start; and
    2. Offer ridiculous suggestions that you think will result in inprovements but are just f**ken stupid.

    If you are struggling so much you should find another hobby. One that helps you put things into perspective.

    He probably should have just forfeited the season before the first game.

    BA: "We're not even going to try until we get a couple of new forwards! See you next year....maybe."

    So whats his plan B.

    He can't just buy a team. He needs to identify talent in the juniors and develop some players.

    He is out of his depth big time.
