    Check out the podcast Hodkinson did with Justin Horo “Horoscope”.
    Definitely worth a listen, he doesn’t hold back.
    Browny is a massive cat.

    I couldnt blame Brown for dropping him though - no matter how bad the side was.

    However, there were others who didn't aim up either and should have been flicked.

    Again, different standards for diffetent players. If Brown ever gets another coaching gig he should learn from the errors he has made.

    Not a pleasant situation but really it had to be done. Sounds like it should have been done a different way though.

    Brown did some good and some not so good.

    Bring on 2020 and the fresh new approach.

    I'd suspect there'd be plenty of ex players with an axe to grind against Brown. Uate, Simms brothers, etc etc etc ......The list would be very long.

    The Sims brothers should take a long look at themselves and the effort they put in here before grinding an axes.

    Haha Hodkinson was a giant dud at that point and didn't belong anywhere near first grade.

    I'm sure Brown would have a lot of players annoyed at him from his time there. He came in and brought a broom to the place churning through players.

    You don't make many friends sacking people.

    Yeah they’ve been a bit occupied dragging the Drags down to the cesspit of the bottom 4. And their coach is too dumb to even realise it.

    This pretty much says it all.

    Did we want a mate for the players? Or did we want someone who would do what had to be done?

    Theres a way to still be respectful and keep communication open.

    You don't find players bagging Bellamy or (mostly) Bennett, and they have sacked plenty.

    Hodkinson wasn't sacked by either of those. We're only getting one side of the story. For all we know, Hodkinson was the one being the dick about it.

    Again, you don't find players ragging on good coaches.

    Bennett and Belamy have never been involved in a shitfest like Newy was. Lots of money at their disposal.

    You don't find coaches dropping good players.

    More to the point, you don't find players who aren't out to stir up trouble starting things via the media.

    Nobody rags on the good coaches cause their records speak for themselves. Easy to speak out on coaches that have been given the flick.

    Yeah Bennett just helps create the shitfest and f**ks off when it gets too hard.
