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 Penri...

No thanks
Ok Nuck - whom do you recommend???
Maguire or ivan
If Toovey and Maguire are in the same mould - and you say no to one - you have to say no to the other.

You do realise Madge is Maguire don't you?
Yes just think toov sucks

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...

Even Buzz is smarter than some on here lol

The incorrect part is if we let him go = no compensation.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

I’d be fine with that. Toovey did a great job for Manly, both as a player and coach - they showed him scant respect in showing him the door. I like a coach that can fire up! Would be great for us. Toovey and Madge both similar mould. No thanks Ok Nuck - whom do you recommend??? Maguire or ivan

Another solution, sound out madge or whoever as head of football, ivan reports to them and recruitment is through them.
So we punting Kelly Egan now too...
Good idea Egan is terrible.

Re: Nathan Cleary

Actually I’ve given this a lot of thought. Since this latest challenge in the development of Wests Tigers presented itself I have been very restrained in my posts and thoughts. I’ve let it play out. I’ve reserved judgement. So, after careful consideration I have formed the opinion that we need a lo...

Re: Nathan Cleary

I get what you're saying I think we could be less hesterical about it.  The same scenario with us could happen at souths with sebold maybe going to Brisbane because has family in Queensland. But I think most people want a coach who wants to be here and Maguire could be that man and has the passion t...

Re: Nathan Cleary

Glad he has shown loyalty to Penrith and IMO a move to the Tigers was never a option.. Let’s hope the Monopoly money earmarked for Nathan can be directed towards fixing some real holes in our roster and of course extending Brooks A thousand times yes! We've got a good halfback already, sign some bl...

I’m so over this s***. We have an awesome halfback - re-sign him to a long deal. Fix the roster and get some decent bloody players. Extend Ivan or piss him off. One or the other.

Re: Nathan Cleary

If Nathan signs with Gus and the Panthers after all they put his father through, then my opinion of the kid is so low he may as well be playing for the Roosters. I dont understand that. It's clear that the kid respects his dad and might even understand that his dad is his own man. His dad can look ...

Was watching controversy corner last night and the Nathan Cleary stuff came up. The comment was made “why would he go to the Tigers, who have nothing, when he can stay at Penrith with all its facilities and huge junior breeding ground.” It just made be realise not much has changed yet. We are viewe...
