he got the remnants all right, 34 year old lazarus was on his last legs and is not the real lazarus, kimmorley had 16 games in his careerwith a team put together from the remnants of 2-3 disbanded clubs and a couple free agents... must be remembered that the first Storm teams in the late 90's had the likes of Glenn Lazarus, Brett Kimmorley, Scott Hill, Robbie Ross, Mark Geyer, Tawera Nikau, Rodney Howe, Stephen Kearney, Richard Swain etc.
I am a fan of Chris Anderson but he had help in Melbourne
I think the large majority are on board though mate, always a few negatories that hold grudges or see things that aren't really there.If you hate it or love it I’m just glad the board and admin have put their balls on the line and made a call. At least we aren’t sitting back accepting the situation where we are and have done something about it.
Absolutely spot on spoony, onwards and upwards bro.If you hate it or love it I’m just glad the board and admin have put their balls on the line and made a call. At least we aren’t sitting back accepting the situation where we are and have done something about it.
Kimmorley was a Newcastle junior and 2 years younger than Andrew Johns... hence, only 6 FG games for the Knights in 2 seasons and then moving to the Hunter Mariners and then the Storm... and he was a Test player by 1999 and playing Origin by 2000he got the remnants all right, 34 year old lazarus was on his last legs and is not the real lazarus, kimmorley had 16 games in his career
phil gould had the premium picks like fitler, scott gourley, barnhill, matt sing, tony iro, john simon and many years to make it happen
make no mistake that chris anderson winning 2 different titles on 2 different teams in the 90's is complete validation and he is unlucky that gould came in and ripped apart all his hard work building the team, signing away dymock, jason smith, pay and others for 1996
Thought he has the same manager as T Baz. Think it’s Wayne Beavis. Retired but still services exisiting clientele.Is Phil Gould's manager Mario Tarak / Crown Sports ? I saw crown sports Instagram repost Buzz Rothfields tweet... I wasn't aware of any association there. Anyone know who his manager really is
The thing is Gould also bring business. His contacts list and the resources up his sleeve are second to none. It was Phil Gould that saved Penrith when they were in financial ruin and on the verge of collapse when he made one phone call to James Packers who kindly parted with near $10 mill to assist Gould in resurrecting the Panthers football club and team. That’s just one fine example of what Gould can do ..Gould is old school football. We had two old school football coaches in Kevin Moore and Des Hasler and it didn't help.
That said, he's in a position where he could actually have an impact. Changing coaches hasn't helped, changing the board hasn't helped, hopefully this will help.
So let me get this straight. Gould said that Barrett shouldn't have taken at the Bulldogs & takes the GM of Football at the Bulldogs himself. I guess money changed his mind.Phil Gould to be the Bulldogs' new General Manager of Football

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have continued to put important pieces in place to build for the future with the appointment of one of the smartest minds in the game in Phil Gould, as their new General Manager of Football.
Gould has an incredible history in the game at all levels - as a player, coach, manager and commentator. Moreover, he has a deep understanding and respect for the Bulldogs Club and it’s history.
Having played in 40 First Grade games for the Bulldogs between 1983 and 1985, Gould then coached the Bulldogs to the 1988 Premiership to give the club its sixth out of eight titles.
From there Gould went on to further Premiership success with the Panthers in 1991, before a stunning coaching career with the New South Wales State of Origin side, where he coached the State to four series wins in five seasons between 1992 and 1996, before returning in 2002 to coach the team for three more series, winning two and drawing a third, to make him the most successful New South Wales Coach in history.
Bulldogs Chair John Khoury was delighted that he had been able to bring Gould back to Belmore:
"Phil Gould’s return to our club as GM of Football is phenomenal news for our club, it’s Members, fans and stakeholders.
He was already part of an amazing run of success that the club had during the eighties and his influence during his time here is something that our fans will always be grateful for.
Phil has a great relationship with Head Coach Trent Barrett and we firmly believe that he can help to drive us forward to getting back to where we need to be: namely as a Premiership contender once again.
Bulldogs Chairman Update: John Khoury
A great deal of work went into ensuring we recruited the right person for the Football Manager role and I am delighted that the club will get to benefit from Phil's knowledge and track record of success, as we look to the future."
Phil Gould was also pleased at the chance to work with the Bulldogs:
"My sincere appreciation and thanks to the Canterbury Bulldogs Chairman John Khoury and his Board, for their confidence in appointing me to this very important position.
It’s a wonderful opportunity, with a great club.
I played with the Bulldogs. This club gifted me my first ever coaching appointment back in 1986. To be returning to the Bulldogs many years later, in this role, is truly exciting.
I look forward to rekindling old friendships, making new friendships, and enjoying the club’s journey back to the top of the National Rugby League”.
