Sorry mickey but that is a load of old codswallopThere's good news and bad news..
The good news is that we have the potential to play some really exciting football as witnessed in the first 15 min this week and last week...I mean exhilarating stuff which is equal to any leading teams attack including Roosters.. the flip side is that we cant maintain it for long periods of time and that tells me that the attack is in transition and only now getting used to the new playbooks or style because it's evident the attack has been tweaked...if you're looking for an answer you only had to look at how much more involvement Flanagan had both in the box and the dressing rooms last night in running of the team - in fact, the NRL could conceivably come down on him if they wanted to because last night he looked anything but an assistant coach...the merkin was running the show!
I wonder how much difference JDB would have made to our defences discipline last night...i just think he brings so much fortitude and energy to our team...i
On many occasions in many games we have looked excellent but almost entirely off the back of individual efforts and only for brief periods (the Broncos SF the exception)
People are wanting to believe something has changed which us just fooling ourselves.
Our defence held for a few games and it was the “Flanno factor”
We scored a few points and had a couple of wins “Flanno factor”
So called better team selections “Flanno factor”
It is all a myth take out the individual efforts of brilliance by Dufty & Lomax and we have SFA. No different to when Dufty was combining with Widdop.
The defence is thread bare and opposition sides can run us down easily after they concede big starts to us.
The team selection remains shit as does the bench usage.
The notion that anything has changed for the better (team wise) or there is in fact a “Flanno factor” is all smoke and mirrors and the greatest con job perpetrated on the fans and even surpasses the Gould review for a complete snow job.
In fact nothing has changed and for all the hype about Flanno and how good he is I think we have actually got worse and I sure as hell hope he gets f**ked of with Mc Fookknuckle.
