Re: WT heading towards financial sustainability?

The reason people like Col and others on here still live in hope of the old Magpies back in the NRL is because Wests Ashfield insisted on having Western Suburbs Magpies as our ISP team. I think the Ashfield board must think they are getting something for their money by doing this but as per this thr...

Re: Cleary,Bennett or Madge

Benj was talking about sheens on isp comentating today on 9. Talking about how unique sheens thinking was. Said in 2005 he made the players put a sticker up in their house where they will see it every day of 1. Quck play the balls 2. Ruck deference and 3. Kick chase. Also said he was his best coach...

Re: Cleary,Bennett or Madge

Personally I think Ivan wants to be a long term Wests Tigers coach. He has full control of the team and any signings and the team he has put together so far is solid. A few key signings and they will be regular finalists. Gus Gould has made the worst decision of his Penrith GM life by making a play ...

Re: Cleary: "Now we just sit back and see what happens"

Warriors will be safe after this weekend. I can’t see Penrith worrying them in the form they’re in at the moment. Roosters will most likely do Brisbane which will bring it down to the last game, but we’d have to beat Souths by about 100 to have any chance of overcoming the points differential, so i...

Re: Cowboys interested in Mcqueen

I didn’t see the game but his numbers were impressive on the weekend.

Most tackles and well over 100m in attack.

Not bad after the injury he had.

Re: Is Nathan Cleary really worth getting for $1 million?

Gee, everyone seems to think that we will be a million dollars better off not getting Cleary jnr. To keep Brooks won’t be that far short of N Cleary money. He’s on $550k now I believe as coach Cleary didn’t want to pay his asking price of $800k last time but he’ll get offers of that and probably mor...

such a disappointing signing....Thought he would turn out to be a powerhouse second rower ...he offered nothing when given the chance in FG....just hope we are not footing his salary over the next 2 years...
If he leaves we will be paying part of his salary.

Re: dally m awards

All the uncertainty may cost us Brooks and Cleary. At what point does someone step in to start negotiations with Brooks for an extension We should know in early November whether NC Re-signs with Penrith. If he does then we see how much we have to offer Brooks. If he doesn’t then Brooks gets an upgr...

Re: Will the Wests Tigers make the 2018 finals?

I voted NO because I think we need to win all three games and I don’t think we will.

Sadly, the Manly game worries me more than Dragons and Souths - because we tend to lose games we are ‘supposed’ to win.

Thanks coach

Ivan I just wanted to say thank you for all the work and effort that you have put into this club these last two seasons. You have copped a fair bit this week but still managed to come up with a great win against our bogey team. Well done. We are still a chance for the finals. Well done. Oh, and I ba...

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Unlike so many people on here who have no patience, I am waiting keenly for the off season signing announcements. I don’t know what these announcements are but the likes of Smoking Gun, the Pom or Jyrsker(?) seem to know that some good things are coming our way. I’m cool with it. Just knowing that s...

Re: Ivan Cleary - THREAD..

So many people still giving it to Ivan.

He has done nothing wrong. Zip.
Now the same people are saying if we extend Ivan the club is still a nut case?

I would extend him for improving our defense this year alone!

Re: Some good News

All I will say, is that if we beat our bogey team Canberra at their place, then we are a definite chance for the eight.

Re: Signing Suggestions & Rumours THREAD..

Can anyone provide an answer on what redress the club has (if any) for player negotiations which are impacted by what Penrith is now alleged to have done? Let's face it, our best chance of signing top talent is Ivan and this continuing uncertainty about the coaching role at the club must be damagin...

Re: Nathan Cleary

Nathan is fast losing his shine for me as well. One thing is clear, he wants to stay at the Panthers. I think that before he signs up again to a long contract and gives away that leverage, the Cleary's are trying this coup to get them reunited at their place of choice. I wouldn't be surprised if th...

Of the coaches available, it has to be Maguire.
