    Toovey should be the man we are chasing an experienced coach not a couple of more yes men Barrett won't solve anything in fact he's a downgrade. All he can teach the players is how to gel their hair and come up with more excuses he perfected that at Manly "The players are fighting with one another" "the gym equipment is no good" blah blah blah. Good coaches work with what they've got as the old saying goes a good worker never blames their tools.

    The main problem is the board we are run by dinosaurs and completely disagree on Barrett he almost coached Manly to a wooden spoon and their longest losing streak in the clubs history in which time all he did was make excuses why he failed, Des has shown in less than 1 season how run a football club.

    Why? He won 29 games out of 72 at Manly. He's every bit as bad as Mary and just another way for the board to slip a useless old boy in.

    Both Mary and Trenty suck air in between there teeth when answering questions. Just another thing that pisses me off. Doesn't take much ATM. Haha.

    How many times does Mary get to change his support staff before our board realise that he is the problem.
    From the outside in the assistant's at our club are only token positions.
    Looks like he is to afraid to let them have ideas or contribute much at all incase he gets shown up.

    Simply rearranging the deck chairs, when all they needed was to throw Mary overboard. Interesting that Daley is suppose to be Junior Development & Pathways. Isn't Millward the Fat Controller of Pathways? Has he been flicked or does Loz have his nose in front and Millward is moving sideways?

    Correct, but the Board appointed him and extended him twice....If he had morals, he would put his hand up and say I haven't achieved anything of substance and its time for someone else to have a shot......

    Instead we just stumble from one poor season to the next...
