Yes, I agree with the comments from Old Timer and Getsmarty.I agree with alot of what you have stated although, with all due respect we have improved since Flanno took over our attack...it is no coincidence that Dufty now plays a lot like Ben Barba and also Clune finally getting a shot in1st grade.
None of these things would have happened when McGregor had total control....just go back and look at a few of our games from last year and the difference is chalk and cheese.
Whoever eventually takes over will have to rebuild the side. I.M.H.O we lack a few hard boppers in the Forwards ala Costigan/J.Smith/Weyman etc...we have wonderful younger talent coming through...
The Sooner the incumbent coach is gone...the quicker these things can start to take place.
It is a pity we cannot Sack our Board...that's where the real issues lie...
Stay healthy and have a great week Old Timer.
We have improved with Flanno but much more improvement is needed in both attack and defence. He may not be the answer but since he more or less has some say in areas where Mary has lacked for years, Flanno has provided this improvement. However, great defence is the essential ingredient to winning big games and great attack is the icing on it all for the excitement it creates. Players like Dufty and Lomax can give us this each week and I am sure that there are others in the squad who can also provide this.
Still need to have stronger, more physical, mongrel and no argue forwards to dominate and a lot more offloads/second phase plays. We could do with a Jason Ryles type coach to help out with the defence.
