Re: Wests Tigers sign Paul Momirovski

This kid can play. Runs the courage line like Lawrence outside in. He’s 12 months away physically and a good Greek boy. I never heard of a Greek name ending in ski usually Yugo or similar. Macedonia is Greece. No it is not - it was. You tell the Macedonians they are Greek - Would advise ducking for...

Re: Ryan Matterson signs Offical

Matterson is our best signing in years. Young, big, mobile, good defender can pass and kick. He’s as good on an edge or lock. I’d have him at lock ET likely misses out. If MCK can improve again our backrower last will look good for next year. Lawrence, Matterson, MCK/ET. Not a bad rotation.

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I'd be amazed if there wasn't a 'no Ivan get out clause'. Surely the Clearys aren't that naive. Nathan signs and Gus pulls Ivan's offer. Without that clause, I don't see them being together at the Panthers - Gus can't be trusted and Ivan should be the most untrusting. The Clearys will unite at Penr...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I think everyone is missing the point. By even giving the perception of signing two years out you are forcing a release without looking like the bad guy. Cleary and Gus are forcing the Tigers hand. The Media for once are calling this out. Cleary should be a man and demand a release but he wants to r...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Pascoes strategy is high risk. Can we retain Brooks, Liddle, Marsters and attract talent over the next 2 years? Better off moving on with Maguire on a 5 year deal we need stability. Penrith are unethical and Cleary is tarnished badly but who wins the negotiation is irrelevant. It’s whats best for th...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I have some experience with NRL contracts with my work in finance dealing with administrators. The Contract is specific to be head coach of the club. You can only strip powers away and sideline the coach but not demote them to a lesser role. It doesn’t matter in this case blind Freddy would tell you...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Having a bit of a think about Cleary being offered a contract extension to flush him out. One of the main reasons for them doing that may be to force Ivan's hands is if they expect he has a handshake deal with Penrith for 2021. Perhaps they have worked out he was just going to go through the motion...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Tigers fans are passionate which is why we turn up to games more than any other Sydney teams with our poor records. The issue here is not Cleary. He’s not Craig Bellamy. It’s the disrespect of our club with the non response and being effectively caught out negotiating behind closed doors with Penrit...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Simply if Ivan does not agree to extend his current deal with the club he WILL NOT be the head coach for 2019. Everything should be finalized one way or the other prior to pre-season, but this is affecting recruitment big time & has already cost us one signing. Exactly what I heard and posted earli...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Maybe the POM can confirm but I’m hearing WT management will sit down with Cleary in the next 2 weeks to table an extension to his contract. If he refuses and commits to the Panthers in 2021 they will sign Maguire and only release Cleary under their own terms. Tigers prepared to let Cleary sit on th...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

If Ivan had an option to leave would he take it. Answer to that question determines WT next step. This is a blessing in disguise I have said it before Madge is a better coach and it’s not close. He won a Super League Grand Final, Challenge Cup with Wigan 76% win rate in 2 years. Souths 56% Win rate....

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Who do you suggest? He'll probably suggest Madge - a coach on the scrap heap :lol: CB I know your a mate of the great Bunny Asprou but Madge is a better coach than Cleary and it’s not even close. He built Souths from the ground up just wore thin after winning a premiership and staying too loyal. He...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Maguire is the play here for the Tigers and release Cleary. Penrith to buy out Ivan’s contract value say 1.5m over the two years. Coach upgrade and cash in the bank. 1.5 million is not nearly enough. Closer to 3.5 mill - this is not part of the cap you know. I know but they won’t pay that sort of m...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

Of course they would be planning this together to get the best outcome for both of them. I also think that Mrs C hates Ivan coaching against Nathan, and if putting pressure on Ivan. I think that if all these media reports are correct Ivan’ Creditable is shot to ribbons. I also wonder if Pascoe is m...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

I don’t mind if we let Cleary walk on the proviso we get a kings ransom in return and sign Maguire. Happens all the time in NFL and NBA teams trade good coaches for 1st round picks and players.
