He knows the pressure is on so he is diverting blame on the group.
100% what's that old cliche ? Winning starts at the front office?Bedsy is a nice lad but doesn't have the experience or background to lead our club in a general manager role. Gardner doesn't have the footy background to be successful either. I think we need this sorted out first
its hardly surprising given we had zero depth to have any genuine competition for spots in the team, theres also no real leaders in there that would set the tone. Gardner and Wests did their job to get Hayden Knowles who's wildly regarded as one of the premier strength and conditioning coaches and they also ensured state of the art facilities only for AOB to waste it all with his poor man management and terrible roster management. When Brian Smith was coach we were so broke our high performance facilities consisted of a storage container at the local council field and we got better results.So AOB is admitting the playing group arent working for him and they arent buying in to what he's selling? That he's failed to instill a winning disciplined culture.
So some players didnt put in and he rewarded them with a start ? ffs
The ship just listed to one side here and the Capt is blaming the crew.
Bedsy is a nice lad but doesn't have the experience or background to lead our club in a general manager role. Gardner doesn't have the footy background to be successful either. I think we need this sorted out first. Recruitment is on song but there is no overarching strategy in place. It feels like what Bedsy wants, Gardner wants, AOB wants etc. is all different.
Holy dooley that is huge! Why would he say this now? That sounds like someone who knows he's on the outer.the press conference on the knights website, basically said a select few didn’t put in during pre season
Then there's this to raise my eyebrow even higher, I'm starting to look like The Rock.
While I totally understand this point, the stategy should be "short term pain for long term gain"its hardly surprising given we had zero depth to have any genuine competition for spots in the team,
This.Surely this is a physic up, any player now thinks he might be amongst the few deemed to have not performed so everyone will now put the effort in to avoid possible listing as non achiever. Taken lots of football, preseason to now to disclose the problem, surely dropping those few no matter the standing in the early rounds would have sorted the problem.
We did play well early in season so what is the truth
O’Brien is as guilty of it as much as the playing group. 2 1/2 years in before he thinks he needs to kick arse. He is a muppet. Strawberry thickshakes all round.Come hell or high water if you dont put in you dont have the honour to wear the red and blue. Lack of effort, you let down the fans, the club , and your team mates all pay the penalty.
I bet that's how the Storm are , the Rorters are, any winning culture is.
If he had set real standards early on we wouldn't be in this predicament. One again we come back to the standards discussion..O’Brien is as guilty of it as much as the playing group. 2 1/2 years in before he thinks he needs to kick arse. He is a muppet. Strawberry thickshakes all round.
Looks exciting. Footwork and an offload. Thanks for sharing.
Bellamy knows that performance comes off the back of effort, if you put in the effort the results will come.You may have noticed Belly called his players out after one subpar performance last night. A game they nearly stole. To Belly it is about the performance. Not necessarily the result.
Is that the same guy who's missed 18 tackles in the last 2 origin gamesWe don’t place any emphasis on doing your job in defensive. If we did, the bloke that has missed 15 tackles the last 2 games would be getting a rocket by playing reserves.
But no, that is accepted at Newcastle. So, the coach reaps what he sows.
