He's had long enough.
I was told Ben Hornby was a Qualified School Teacher bring back Ben.
I predict the total number of comments in this thread will someday outnumber those in the Sack McGregor thread...
Dean Young should definitely not be given the job.
He's no McGregor.
For starters, he's experienced actual success with the 2010 premiership.
He didn't white ant the head coach to steal his job.
He doesn't give interviews talking about me me me despite only being an assistant.
And fighting back from the adversity in his playing career showed him to be a mentally tough, courageous individual and a true leader.
Doesn't deserve the hate yet. I love him. But yeah, don't give him the job pls
This is how we should think of him - a premiership winner with the Dragons who always put in.
No need to spoil that legacy by making him coach for the next six years.
He is cut from the same mould as his father.Great for a footballer but disastrous for a coach. He will have massive communication issues and the inability to get into the young players heads.
Getting rid of a massive problem only to come up with a massive problem!!
Young should be allowed to get on with the job of getting through to the end of the season with no angst from the fan base.
Him being head coach is not by his own doing and as we decided to have an assistant in Flanno that is not eligible to coach we doubled down on the problem at hand as most likely the BOD saw career coach getting through to the end of 2021.
I wish Dean well and thank him for taking on the "no win" task of babysitting the mess created by others and I seriously hope that he is in the running to be assistant coach at either our club or another club if he decides to broaden his knowledge base before throwing his hat into the ring for a NRL coaching gig.
Hopefully he takes note of Fitzgibbon and Ryles who retired long before him in respect of what is needed to get the requisite skills to embark on the perilous road of being a NRL coach.
If you pick that prick Norman though the "Young is Dung" banner will come out pretty quickly.
I wish Deano all the best and already he’s a massive improvement on the former Peanut.
I’d be happy for him to revert back to an assistant role next year under someone from outside with experience.
Who the f**k that is will be a mystery as many seem to have been ruled out by the media viruses.
Dean Young did not need to white ant Mary because his father did all the work at Board level. Of course, it is just a coincidence that Dean takes over as interim head coach and that it is timed when the Dragons face 3 consecutive easy games at the start of his appointment.
Unless some sanity is found very soon, the Board will appoint Young as head coach on a 3-year deal and Millward to the newly created job of Director of Football.
Mary has endorsed Dean...that is the perfect reason why Dean Young should never, EVER, coach a team.
Hope not that was 7 years worth...
No-one white-anted Mary. He had all the necessary skills, talent and abilities to undertake that task on his own.
I wanted to create this thread yesterday but others in control have already shown there hand.
C’mon possm the truth is patently obvious that Mc Gregor white anted himself and needed no assistance from anyone let alone Albert.
His results were shit and after the protection of the media started to wane it was a matter of time.
Our new CEO who to date has been unfairly maligned took the bit between his teeth and expertly managed career coach out the door.
Webb was very clear in his choice of words re where to from here and I fully expect that a wise and considered choice of head coach will be made and it won’t be Dean Young.
Re your allegation about Albert doing the white anting at board level no doubt there was a lot of angst between the St George and Illawarra sides of the board re the coach so it’s a pity that any such white anting didn’t get the desired result earlier.
46% overall and much less than that in recent times didn’t require that much white anting all said and done.
What a great story - Ivan Cleary coaching his son Nathan at the Panthers.
Not a great story but Albert's son Dean coaching the Dragons (interim)
But what a story of a down and out Coach (Shane Flanagan) coming from the ashes to coach his son Kyle at the Mighty Mighty Dragons.
Otherwise if I was the board I would be lined up outside Craig Fitzgibbon's door - promising that they would build a center of excellence at Helensburg (half way between the Gong and Carlton)
The Burg 39 kilometers from Kogarah Oval and 35 kilometers from WIN Stadium.
That's all I have to say about that
I think they should build a better roster & give Steve Price another shot.
Creeping left him a crappy one to work with.
I think the reason McGregor endorsed Dean Young is that he wants a replacement that doesn't show him up. The last thing he wants is a replacement that makes him look bad and exposes all his failings.
Somehow I dont think Dean is in the frame. He already knows he has no experience and if he was appointed, the scrutiny of every loss would be attributed to his appointment as being nepotistic.
A taste now may inspire him to seek experience elsewhere, if, of course, he has HC aspirations. He just has to look around and most of the current HC's have done just this.
I wouldn’t be surprised if DY is made head coach. I’m used to the idiotic decisions this team has made year in and year out.
