    It is important not to underestimate just how terrible Luke Burt us at football. He lost us all those games.

    SO let me get this straight, you are a bandwagoner if you are a little worried that the coach's record is sketchy?

    Recruitment is good, the right structures seem to be in place........last piece of the puzzle is if the coach can do anything with it........i am not 100% confident, i want to be BUT i have been burnt plenty :(

    No they don't; they point to a lack of a kicking game and lack of speed out wide in defence.

    Not true.

    Our fullback and most of our forwards go alright. It's just our halves and centres and wingers that were shit this year.

    I'll say 2013-2015.

    Back-to-back. To back.

    You don't reckon Kearney will be a good coach by then?

    By the start of 2013 he'll have two years of rugby league experience under his belt.

    I know you've been watching the game a lot longer than that, but hopefully by then Kearney will know as much as you do about footy and use of the interchange bench.

    But if Kearney turns out no good maybe we can get Daniel Anderson back? I just hope we don't have to pay too much to buy out his contract with his current club.

    Too many new players.

    We'll finish 6th-8th, but the squad itself is good enough to win the premiership (not saying much since about 7 or 8 clubs will have squads good enough to win the comp next year).

    I got a better idea. Let's give SK a fair go, if the team is struggling mid year, maybe our CEO at the time can go down to Canberra, and speak to their assistant.

    A new rookie won't be to hard to find, will it?????

    For those of us who closely watch the Superleague, it has improved dramatically.

    They have a good mix of old and young and finally have the right 1, 7, 9.

    Sam Tomkins has been a stand out.

    Rangi Chase was the best half in the comp and won the man of steel award

    James Roby, great no.9 who can easily play NRL.

    Kiwis were totally out played, although they were missing Matai, Manu, junior Sa'u, Hoffman etc

    Fui was a late withdrawal also

    It's been a very long season for the majority of the kiwi squad.

    I've got an even better idea.

    Save your hypotheticals and wait to see how we're travelling. If the team is struggling mid year then it won't matter what happens because we're well and truly f**ked as a club.

    What are you going to do if we're sitting top four by round 13? You keep going on about "if the team struggles". What if they do well next year? Why do you never have anything to say about that?

    It's also shortsighted and simplistic.


    Do you think Kearney is complacent? Do you think he recruits complacent players? Do you think that he is breeding complacency?



    So you say that the buck stops with the coach, though this may not be justified?!? That is the sort of shortsighted, knee-jerk reaction that is the problem in moden sport, and it has been created by the desire to see instant fixes in an environment where building a winning culture takes time.

    If it's not justified for the buck to stop with the coach (for example, he might not have the right players to make smart decisions) then don't let the buck stop with him.

    I think how "bandwagon" was used here has been taken out of context. It wasn't being said that you were a bandwagon fan of the Eels if you bagged the coach this year only to change your tune next year if we went well. The post was saying that if you state things like "Kearney will never be a good first grade coach" (as the original poster did), then if he succeeds and suddenly change your attitude, that is being a "bandwagon Kearney fan".

    And I entirely agree. You see, what you say here
    is, I believe, how people should be thinking and feeling (if not more positive). The reason I think this is because the only argument against Kearney so far is results of one season, whereas everything else - recruitment, attitudes etc - seems good, so it's impossible to tell whether or not he will end up being a good or great coach. I'd say on balance things are looking up.

    In the absence of any definitive proof that he is a bad coach why do people go the negative option? It really perplexes me why people always see the downside to everything and then claim they are just being realistic when, quite plainly, they aren't.

    So it's a bit of a rebuilding year.

    I've got a feeling we can do it.

    I wish Daniel Anderson's family and friends would just leave these forums.

    Mate, you can't reason with idiots.


    Let's see what he does this year and then judge him.
