    Well as I said I respectfully disagree. Not about Moses going sideways though but I still thought gutho has an opportunity to create something for himself

    What a negative pri*k he is. Sounds like hes not happy and sees much to be corrected. Had the audacity to say the problems have been occurring for some time. One would say hes become critical of our coaching. Sterlo ffs. We are still 3rd you arrogant specimen. What the hell would you know.

    That’s a strawman.

    He said we’re playing with plenty of effort but playing dumb eg having players run one out into gang tackles and getting slow play the balls. I think it’s a far more valuable insight than “we are playing poor”.

    It isn't really insightful though, is it?

    I bet if you told the coaching staff they’d say “Woah I never thought of that. It’s really insightful”

    I doubt it. Very easy to identify problems. Much harder to solve them.

    It's why everyone on here (and Sterlo) will never be a full time coach.

    What if it’s an easy fix?

    Looking back at a few things in the last 24 hours, we rested some players against Manly in the middle of the year and performed poorly on the night. We've not really recovered from this match at all. We've been dreadful from the moment the coaching staff decided to rest these player. It's a culmination of plenty of reasons, but we don't really look like recovering anytime soon.

    They get paid to fix those problems. If they can’t then you have to find someone who can.

    What if the situation is more complex than a sound bite and what one says to the media is not what one thinks behind closed doors?

    Yep, I believe that is how the coaching process works.

    True, but last year I tipped us to finish eighth. I reckon we overachieved.

    Why would a coach say ‘it’s an easy fix’ if he knows it’s not an easy fix and doesn’t really know how to fix it?
