Does anyone else notice the correlation between Wests/Farah media circuses and poor performances on the field.

He is not even here yet and doing damage.
This is the sort of rubbish we will have to put up with if he returns.
The blame Robbie for everything brigade.
Yep, it is disgraceful. He should stay away.
Does anyone see the correlation between us playing Canberra ,AND US being made to look like a team of schoolboys.
(apologies to any schoolboys, who may read this)
They usually rely on the game against us to top up their points for.

Isn't there a board meeting today?

Word is the Farah lost it big time and had a go at Marina Go to her face and it was not a good look very ugly but another said he was just letting off steam the way that Farah does and not to worry hes just hot blooded apparently he said things about her running the club and Taylor
Good joke then he proposed to her did he?

I didn't hear anything about proposing just a big stoush face to face
And this is the first of many "inside reliable information " tidbits that we will be getting on a daily basis from the Anti Farah. crowd.
We will hear every word about what he had for lunch and if he sinks to the level of plotting against our esteemed MARINA, We will hear about it well before hes even thought about it himself.
Our pipeline, that is never more than 1 metre away from Robbie whenever he has a conversation, will (, as usually happens) get that information directly to us all.
And its authenticity, as usual, will never be questioned

At this late time of night for meetings to finish I am beginning to think that no news is bad news

One thing is for sure If Farah does come, he can't stifle our attack as he was supposedly doing before, because we don't have any attack at present.
And the bloke Farah was supposedly stifling is Brooks, and he has not ignited any attack, so maybe it wasn't Farah's fault we couldn't score tries.
AAAHHH' some logic!!!! we dont see much of that here,
its strange that most , or all ,of our problems didnt magically disappear the moment that Farah walked into South Sydney. After all, He was the Antichrist, the maker of all our problems
WHO then, is the real culprit.
Is it a hang over from the worlds worst COACH, (for want of a better word) or is there a traitor in our midst.
Its up to us to find the person who really has been stuffing us up?
We should have a new Poll to find out who is the most LIKELY :lol:

I would, but Im computer illiterate

But my Parra mate stands by JT as they won 9 games in a row (I think it was) in Taylor's first year there to get them into the finals

Leichhardt Oval will be the location for Robbie Farah’s first game back if he returns to Wests Tigers in what would be an emotional homecoming for the former skipper. The Tigers were so desperate to get rid of Farah just 18 months ago that they paid $750,000 just to get him off the books. However, coach Ivan Cleary is genuine about bringing Farah back, with a final call likely to be made at a Tigers board meeting on Monday night. Farah and Cleary first spoke about the prospect of a Tigers return six months ago, the talks intensifying in recent weeks as the June 30 transfer deadline approached. While Cleary has never coached the Rabbitohs hooker, the pair have a relationship from their brief time together as coach and player for the Lebanon national side.

The Tigers view Jacob Liddle as the club’s long-term dummy half. However, a series of injuries – Liddle has already undergone two shoulder reconstructions – have prevented the 21-year-old from cementing a first-grade position. With one spot still remaining in his top-30 roster and with his team struggling without a top-class hooker, Cleary is keen to add Farah to a new-look spine that would also include Bulldogs mid-season signing Moses Mbye.

If Farah was to return to Concord, it would only be for the remainder of the season. Given there is no NRL played next weekend due to the representative round, his first assignment would be against the Titans at his beloved Leichhardt Oval. With the game scheduled on a Sunday, a sellout crowd would be guaranteed for what would be one of the biggest events in the oval's recent history.

Tell Souths that they can keep Robbie and we’ll take Cook.
Great deal!

I will only believe this when I see it. I made the point and was later backed up by (maybe) Steve that he had done a 5 hour round trip to get to Campbelltown to see a below standard game.

This is not good enough. Fans will substantially cease to come and TV ratings and sponsorship will be down if we don't have a solid team - they don't necessarily have to win but just to put a decent game in.

The dummy half is the big let down and has to be fixed one way or another, it does not matter who it is but must be fixed in a hurry.

I haven't seen a article 100% linking us to Farah yet.
I have family in Balmain and the Western suburbs so i guess that makes me a Balmain Westie

You can check out the Warren and there was not one word of praise for Cook's last NRL game but his kept his tackle count up. Consistency is also important. You had better bring Robbie back with him for continued specialist-hooker coaching.

Why would Farah even entertain the thought of coming back to the Tigers. Souths are a real chance of going very deep into the finals and he only needs one injury and he will be part of it. Also come the big games at the end of the year he may even get a bench spot.

Come to the Tigers and it will be much the same as when he left

I thought the same but kept to myself. I find it a bit incredible that he is not even on the bench over there. They must be rich in talent or breaking new blood in. It would be so amazing if he gets a GF with the team that expelled JT - who will be smiling last?

Any chance the Farah announcement and that of the other suggested signing may be held due to working out Tim Grant etc to another club.
Its an opinion!

Hook line and sinker, I just posted that comment to see if I could get a reaction from BBF.
Got you 100%.
