    Green, Flanno and Sheens on staff with BA? Is that their proposal? I could only read the first paragraph.

    So here are the issues.

    1) we currently haven't voted for many years.
    2) we have tri-annual elections now, it would have to be a three year effort.
    3) two board members will be voted on in December.

    You know I have heard talk many years ago that certain people don't want to come to Parramatta, considering it a "Nest of Vipers" and we are acting like that again.

    Can't see it happening but a coaching staff of BA, Paul Green, Shane Flanagan and Tim Sheens would seem pretty impressive.

    The Cowboys won the comp with John Cartwright, David Furner and Jason Demetriou as Green's assistants.

    If this happens BA will be exposed like a Portuguese chicken and one of these assistants
    will take his job in 2022.

    Think the so called power group making all the noise are the nuffies that opposed the board restructure . They appear to be a group of about 6/8 People supported by an ex board member who wants nothing more than return the club to the bad old days.

    Don’t think the constitution now allows this, but it doesn’t stop them hawking their views to a click bait press, the real issue is the media reporting something that has no influence and even less chance of success.

    As we have been told, 2 clubs move the needle on tv and in the media, Souffs and the Eels, need say nothing else .

    Powerful Parramatta Eels lobby group demands title and coaching shake-up

    A powerful Parramatta lobby group will meet with senior Eels management next week in an attempt to have Paul Green, Shane Flanagan and Tim Sheens named on Brad Arthur’s coaching staff.

    The Daily Telegraph can reveal the 20-member group will virtually demand a premiership win in 2021 or start agitating to overthrow the board.

    While Parramatta reached week two of the finals for a second successive season, the advocate group — comprising local businessmen, corporate partners, politicians and sponsors — remain unsettled and unfulfilled.

    The group is not seeking to have Arthur sacked — he re-signed this year for a further two seasons — but will push the board to employ additional and high profile assistants.


    [​IMG]
    This is the same lobby group with influential connections which helped crunch the numbers to unseat former clubs powerbrokers Roy Spagnolo and Steve Sharp.

    It is understood around five members of the group will meet Eels chief executive Jim Sarantinos, club chairman Sean McElduff, and possibly general manager of football Mark O’Neill, on Thursday.

    Eels coach Brad Arthur could have some high profile assistants.
    Members of the group believe Arthur needs to surround himself with additional football nous.

    The group will propose Green and Flanagan be assistants with Sheens named as coaching director. A two-time former Canberra premiership-winning coach, Sheens resigned as Widnes coach earlier this month.


    Green (North Queensland) and Flanagan (Cronulla) have also won NRL premiership as coaches. Flanagan played with Parramatta between 1992 and 1994.


    [​IMG]
    Arthur — universally respected — has won 30 of 48 games over the past two seasons for a success rate of 62.5 per cent. His assistant coach this year was David Kidwell.

    The group’s members did not want to talk publicly until after next week’s meeting.

    Group members also want to know the board’s strategies and how much money can be spent to develop the club’s coaching staff.

    There was much discussion about the season at the Ken Thornett Medal – won by skipper Clint Gutherson - at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Tuesday night.

    Representatives from the club’s major sponsors are understood to have joined the debate.

    It’s not the worst thing in the world. BA has been making rookie mistakes even in his 7th season here. Let the f^*kers make some noise, it’ll open the eyes of the people that matter.

    I wouldn't say its exciting but its interesting. Im always concerned such ppl put their own self interests before that of the club. The article mentioned a politician. Thats that ex Mayor goose who loves to hear himself speak at each AGM but actually says nothing. Egomaniac. Obviously coming 3rd isnt good enough for some.

    Agree with this. The group smacks of self interest. F**k off and find some other play thing.

    I think that's obvious from a bunch on this site too who have been throwing hand grenades since Saturday night.

    They could have given him some time to absorb the news before taking the photo.

    It disappoints me to be reading about this shit. I really hoped we had moved on as a club.
