    All the more reason he should lend us a sympathetic ear and give us extra special dispensation to reduce Flannos ban, thus allowing the board good reason to sack McGregor this season and appoint Flanagan for 2021.

    And this is where I think V’Landys will excel,
    He’s not afraid to make the tough calls, Just so long as the clubs don’t spit the dummy & try to get rid of him.

    With assets over $14m and owning its home ground means Cronulla won’t fold. As for SGI, remember, it cannot payout McGregor.

    Rubbish you don’t know if St George can’t afford to pay him out.
    if I was running the club I wouldn’t pay someone 2yrs salary to ride off into the sunset
    I would demote him To see if he can still provide some return for money which is pretty much what they’ve done brought in another proven superior basically current coach to help himcoach and siending him on a junket overseas to try to improve his coaching
    He is walking on thin ice and he knows it and the start of the season certainly hasn’t helped him
    Dont expect him to be there too much longer at the longest see out this year As we all know he is a waste of money at the moment unless he’s cleaning the joint

    I thought it was common knowledge that SGI cannot afford to payout McGregor. Please refer to the following link.

    Sadly, McGregor will still be around like a bad fart next year.

    I do like Tyson, but this dragged on so long it doesn’t really bother me.

    I will say one thing, with all the financial uncertainty around the game, I wouldn’t be signing anyone on that coin right now.

    More importantly, what tool would appoint a park football specialist in the first place?

    So a club that is reliant on funding from a leagues club group in Newcastle that are all now closed losing millions and had to lay off all of their coaching staff is going to pay 2.1 million for a player in this climate? sounds a little odd...

    True but they were the first to let staff go. Time will tell i guess. Seems like the teams bank rolled by leagues clubs that looked the strongest prior to this crisis are the ones that have laid the staff off. Teams with more diverse financial interests are still hanging in there. Early days though.

    I wouldn't pay 2.1million for anyone at this stage.

    True Samy but it’s the kick in the balls to us supporters courtesy of Mcdogshit. Each time its another knife in the chest for our once mighty club

    I have a feeling this deal was done way before the Corona outbreak.
