The pressure is on till he is sacked
Spot on, I have little respect for the Jurnos but its time like these that can work in our favour to get action.Whatever people want to say about the source, I'm glad these articles are being written.. It adds pressure on the club to act sooner.. With every loss more articles like this will be written which surely means it's only a matter of time til they act.
Ummm...when Flanagan is off contract at the end of 2023 he gets pissed off....surely it will not just come down to senior Flanagan if he was our coach next year whether his son earn another contreactThe difficult decission Gould and the board will is findung a replacement, I understand that many believe that to repeat Bill Haden's words "a drovers dog" would do a better job.
I am not convinced that all of the possible replacements ie. Flanagan, Ciraldo, Morris, Green, Woolfe or whoever else. are all jumping out of their skin to take over.
Of all those I would not want Flannagan not because of his past but because of favouratism he would have for his useless son.
We must not forget the Hasler period, when we were all doing hand stands when he was appointed, yet IMHO and that of some others he never had his heart in the club, which tells me that he actually had a hatred for our club, and only came because the money was double what he had been paid at Manly.
For a start I would replace all the assistants, except for the CC coach.
If Barrett was responsible for the signing of Burton JAC, Mahoney and Kikau, perhaps the club could keep his as an assistant, because I believe that our defence coach and the skills coach all have had something to do with our current onfield results.
I'm wondering if Gus own stubborn nature may be influencing his own better judgement here.I’ll take the article with a grain of salt but if by chance Gus really believes Barrett is somehow going to change the clubs fortunes then he has lost the plot.
I agree that results may not miraculously improve in the short term but the way I see it is when you identify the cancer you need to cut it out quickly before it spreads and makes the condition worse and more difficult to cure later.I agree bro. Sacking Baz mid season will appease lots of fans but not sure it improves results
We lost against raiders and knights.. it shouldnt take a loss against the tigers because tigers are better than knights and raidersNot sure how Barrett’s being shielded. It’s Barrett that fronts up to post match pressers and have to justify the crap his weekly coaching produces week in week out. Barrett can’t hide & has to cop the scrutiny particularly from the Raiders & Knights embarrassments.
The problem is Barrett’s replacement…,
A loss against the Tigers on the other hand…….
I think Gus’ reputation is most important to him. He won’t protect anyone at his own expense. When journos start writing about Gus being unable to rebuild the club he will move into action. Hopefully that’s soon.I'm wondering if Gus own stubborn nature may be influencing his own better judgement here.
Gus didn't want Barrett to go to the dogs.
He said it would ruin his coaching career.
Gus knew how bad things were at the dogs.
He knew what was required to rebuild and obviously knew Barrett wasn't the right fit.
He has now come into the dogs.
Has Gus made it his mission to save Barrett?
And he is now hell bent to keep Barrett on no matter what so Barrett is still at the club when we eventually start to improve?
The sad part is, even if Barrett improves next season (if he is here)... He has already shown he cannot coach on the run or adapt opposition changes... So if we miraculously make finals in future, we would likely bow out under the first sign of pressure.I’ll take the article with a grain of salt but if by chance Gus really believes Barrett is somehow going to change the clubs fortunes then he has lost the plot.
Was thinking along the same lines as far as this point you made.Weazler is part of the Ch9 media group. Gus' team.
When he starts writing stuff like this you gotta kinda think Gus knows about it in some shape or form.
It could be the start of the fix to start replacing Baz
Great minds and all that lolWas thinking along the same lines as far as this point you made.
I can't see Weilder writing this piece without Gus knowing to some extent.
This could be Gus using pressure on the board to sack Barrett rather than Gus sacking Barrett, that way his support isn't openly criticised for the next incoming coach.
Just me passing BS though I have no idea
