He is the best man available.
I bet if Flanagan wanted to join Canterbury, Greedturd would have approved it.
Geoff Toovey is our main target.
Mate, for your own sake, run for the hills.
This place is a f**king zoo atm.
Less swamp animals in here the better (Millers okay I guess)...
So I’ve seen Flanno (nope), Fitzgibbon, Griffin & now Toovey all being listed as ‘main targets’ in the last day or so.
Which one is it??
Fitzgibbon ............... Sally.
Nobody knows a f**king thing it seems, and if they do, they’re keeping it under wraps.
I knew it was too good to be true.
Doubt the club hierarchy even know what they intend to do yet......if anything at all.
I hope that Flanagan not getting the go ahead hasn't stuffed it up for us to get a new coach.
As we know dragons dont have a plan B.
No problems Michael...No need to apologize...have a good evening.
Based on the first 6 weeks of the last few seasons he's the man for the job. What a shame the season isn't 6 weeks long.
Ladder at round 6 & end of regular season
2019 - 6th currently 15th
2018 - 1st finished 7th
2017 - 1st finished 9th
2016 - 14th finished 11th
2015 - 3rd finished 8th
Only our club, or maybe the Titans could be this inept.
Great they will reappoint him again for two more years after round 6 in 2020 !.....I shouldn’t joke about it our incompetent Board is capable of anything !
Flanagan can coach the team via email
Rothfield on radio this morning reckons the nrl may allow Flanagan to be an assistant coach next season. If so I’d say our board could go this way & keep L plate on. This way they keep a bit of face.
He also said there were 2 board members wanting change & one big( not St. George bank) sponsor threatening to pull out.
Bet one of the Board members is Craig Young !
I really hope Shane Flanagan can eventually come to the Dragons.
Whether that be 2020 or 2021, the sooner the better.
If it is true that McIdiot is one $600,000 a season that is beyond a joke. That salary is absolutely laughable for a coach which has literally achieved one thing in his career. A 48-18 win against the Broncos in last year's finals week 1. He shouldn't be on more that $200,000 and that is being kind.
That is all he has done in 6 years. That is it. The win against the Broncos.
The guy has coached the club to it's worst finish since the 40s.
He should go.
Flanagan wouldn't tolerate shit finishes like this.
He won a premiership, he knows how to get the best out of players. He turned Cronulla into a side that would constantly make the 8. The guy coached from 2010-2018, excluding 2014. 2010 he took over with 6 rounds to go, they manged to beat the Roosters who made the Grand Final. Close defeats.
Then 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 finals appearances. Lowest position 6th in those years. Top four, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
It is a no-brainier.
Really hope he becomes the head coach.
The only thing that will get me to re-join as a member next year would be a new coach.
Management should hound the NRL to let Flanagan come back.
I would be happy with Brown made caretaker coach, until Flanagan is cleared by the NRL to coach again, then Brown moved to assistant coach. That would be under the proviso that Flanno would want Brown as his assistant. Someone on this site previously said, that Brown would be interested in taking over for 1 year.
