    Mary will be sacked at years end. I heard he's a dead man walking.
    There may even be a caretaker coach in the coming weeks

    I saw that pre match rubbish. The first thing Girdler said is that Lafai and Aitken have been going great. Then he tried to read out the team list and mispronounced every second name.

    He has no idea.

    Please give us your source. You have no idea, these words are like a beautiful elixir to me. Desperate.

    Cant see the sacking. I see the media now and club PR spin working overtime to protect Mary and blame origin and our large contribution to and players playing fatigued and busted for their 1st time at that level. (i.e not handling origin, Denver Test and its hangover will be the excuse).
    End Of Season Review. We will learn from that and with the same players and staff be better equipped next year.
    My facts are
    1. The real worrying signs of form appeared in Round 11 at Mudgee against Canberra for our 1st lucky escape. Before Origin. Canberra were also poor that game in mistakes and defence.
    2. Hunt is averaging 4-5 miss tackles a game. 2nd highest to Maloney. His average was a lot less after Round 9.
    3. When did our game plan change to stop taking bombs and play 2nd phase?
    4. We had the best defence at the halfway mark. We are now about 8th.
    5. I think our Origin forwards are our best, so no to that excuse.

    Mary will be sacked but it is only a matter of time. And when that day comes I will be elated. I will also bask in the glory so long that the new coach could take us to a wooden spoon and I wouldn't even care.

    Peter Doust has the greatest opportunity to sign up Bennett for next year right now, Brisbane don't want him there period, their trash like in 2008 became our treasure.
    Bring on down the Wayne and Jason show!

    The results, the huge loss to last place that most of us saw coming, the Panthers move, the scent of upheaval between players, the very odd terrigal trip...

    I have renewed hope this morning that this guy will be gone very soon. I am grasping in desparation at anything but surely it is going to happen!!

    This sums up Chiefy's mail, sorry mate. Had to pop in and set the record straight

    The bloke hasn't got one right regarding Parra. Mary would be under some pressure for sure, anyone can see it. He's just having a stab at a chance that anyone can see and trying to pass it off as a scoop, it's his MO.

    I am going to keep updating this until Mary is on his bike.

    2015 We lost 11 of our last 14 games under Paul McGregor (21% winning rate)
    2016 We lost 7 of our last 9 games under Paul McGregor (22% winning rate)
    2017 We lost 8 of our last 12 games under Paul McGregor (33% winning rate)
    2018 We have lost 5 of our last 6 games under Paul McGregor (20% winning rate)

    And if only there was a statistic for how annoying he is in a press conference...

    Perfect definition of insanity: keep doing the same thing and expect a different result.

    How is he still coach after losing a top 4 spot on the ladder after a thrashing by the team running last?
    We've seen the same decline every season since he has been coach.
    Not 1 player has become better since being under his charge.
    Fans hate him.
    He does'nt instil any confidence or inspires the playing group.

    What more will it take?

    Currently..........Manly, Souths, West-Tigers, Broncos, Panthers maybe considering a new coaching proposition.

    Name one that would consider the clown at our club?????? His application would be thrown in the garbage were it belongs. Or he wouldnt embarrass himself by submitting one.

    once the team is in a form slump they seem to stay in it and not been able to get out of it. The players lose confidence very easy when things don't go their way during games I think that comes down to coach not being able to motivate the players and does not come up with any fresh ideas.
