Re: 2019 Coaching saga -Thread

You cant discount Ivan walking. The backlash against him from fans will be immense especially if we miss out on Bennett and Maguire. Dont think he would put his family through it, which may encourage Penrith to strike a deal to release him so that both clubs can get on with it. If Ivan is under dur...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Think many are forgetting how far we have come. In the past would we have ever been discussing coaches in the same class as Bennett and Maquire to take over. The front office has improved to the extent that these coaches are a possibility. If it takes a little longer to get a result thats good for ...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Yeah now we're awaiting on how things unveil at the Broncos and it makes me feel they haven't really got a handle on things. Rash might be the wrong word. But I don't want the club to set forth a plan totally based on another club's decision. This sends the wrong message to me. Meanwhile Gus Gould ...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Times up Benny Benny staying in Brisbane for one more year me thinks.. DT saying things could change is seibold commits to brons 2020. Souths could say broncs can have seibold 2019. Cleary to pussy cats. Bennetts to tigpies. 2019 Theoretically, why would Souths release Seibold early? Who would they...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Michael Maguire is in the box seat for 2019 only thing that will change that is if In the next 24-36hrs Bennett changed his mind & quits Brisbane. Also Luke Brooks will re-sign for a further 3 years.

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Maguire 'might' bring players and he "might" be better than Ivan. Scour the internet and I guarantee you won't find evidence of any player holding off from re-signing with his current club because he wants to know where Madge is coaching in 2019. Bennett meantime has at least 3 players in a positio...

Jennings has been offered up to Newcastle, one of the few clubs that still have money remaining under the salary cap. Who would you tak...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

The problem was the Clubs media department running with the bus they made it more than what it was... The culture thing such as be the player your team mates want to play with and star of the team is the team was all Cleary driving his mantra which now looks like a pile of crap ... it's where he lo...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Yes there was a mantra behind and yes it has deep meaning. He used it to the guys who ended up leaving the club. Forcing them to make a decision and let us know. They were either coming on this journey with him or they weren’t. He also talked about long term commitment from his players to what he w...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Not an upgrade? Maguire has won two premierships and has around a 58-60% winning record. Way better than Clearly. Definite upgrade. Prob get him for 600k compared to Bennett's 1 mill a season. Yes Bennett would be better but not by much. Oh he’s probably an upgrade from Cleary, but nowhere near Ben...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

I can see it now...Maguire (as its stated above) will (hopefully) sign a 4 year contract with Wests Tigers. Cleary will be off to panthers. These two moves will settle all this crap talk about the coaching fiasco between Wests Tigers and Panthers. But , what it will do , is create a new fiasco betw...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Question for everyone here - Pascoe comes out in the next day or two and confirms Cleary will be coach in 2019/20, would you buy a membership? Season tickets? How would you respond? I already have. I support the team, regardless of who the coach is. Withholding my membership until a coach woos me a...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Screw the lot of them. That funny little man Geoff Toovey isn't doing anything at the moment, he coaches at 58%, comes cheap, and has passion. We've had a lot worse than him before.... Mate. The club is cash strapped as it is. We can't afford all the investigations he will call for. Get on the inve...

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

Maguire did him self a favour winning the NZ. I like that he will have a connection with NZ test as we have a connection to NZ it will also draw players to us.

We need a long term coach I'm starting to favour Maguire.

You can hammer me later if I’m wrong but I’m very reliably informed both Maguire 2019 and Bennett 2020 have verballly agreed to terms with the Tigers. It’s the clubs choice what suits them. Cleary is gone.
Huh?

Re: Tigers set to part ways with Cleary and seal Bennett deal

This might be a silly thing to say but what about we sign Wayne Bennett for 2020 for three years and let him appoint a caretaker coach for 2019. You never know we might get Demetriou for a year.Not sold on Maguire. Could live with that. You mean we give penrith cleary so super coach ciraldo is not ...
