Ivan won't see out his 3 years , too many doomsayers already want him gone asap

Always the coach , rarely the players are blamed , yet Ivan hasn't dropped a pass , missed a tackle ,or got so far from the game plan it isn't funny yet

Players aren't playing remotely as well as they were 6 weeks ago

No desperation , the only sign of team is the teeming of points in recent weeks

Good lord ... cry me a river :bawling
Mate, you were caught out not having thought that snide dig all the way through. Move on.
Let’s see how the cookie crumbles with this Penrith kid....

I bet you my house he’ll be better than brooks after 99 games ..
Most decent clubs would have MOVED on brooks after 50 games ..,!
Bingo, we over rate our juniors, and just keep telling ourselves they will come good, even if it has been 5 years and 100 games, we are still prepared to wait, no wonder we are never in the finals :brick:
Brooks would be a qualified plumber by now if he was a Broncos or Storm junior !
We need mongrel ..

I sincerely hope you are wrong Cleary has been the best coach we have had since the early Sheens years.He is what we need and was given till 2020 to get it right.
It is only my opinion but i feel he has improved the club since he has been here and will continue doing so.

lets be real, no need signing young cleary, if we dont have some decent forwards to look after him, so unless Ivan gets his finger out and signs us 3-4 forwards for next year bring him here would be useless.
I like it.
Don’t sign any quality halves or backs until we sign a handful of top forwards.
I think everyone would agree that we need 2-3 better forwards for 2019
That may be so but I think most, if not all, the best forwards are already locked up. That leaves fringe players who are always a risk and that’s no different to what we done ... like forever.

Pangai jnr wants a decent contract
So does oats
I would think another quality front rower and a classy 2nd rower would be my priorites.
I think more people should be congratulating Ivan hes doing a great job.
Players can always be moved on if they are not performing.
Your only as good as your last game!

I doubt Ivan is too worried that a few people on a forum want him gone.... friends in the right places. Wait till the extension comes through.

3 good forwards with what we already have and Brooks will be looking a hell of a lot better - as he was during the first 6 weeks when the pack was performing OK.

It’s a beat up in a long running News Ltd media campaign against Phil Gould. Ivan is contracted until 2020 with a young family in the Northern Beaches.

Penrith can offer the same money to both parties. They don’t need to Nathan will stay at Penrith and Ivan will get a contract extension with the Tigers if he is good enough. Tigers are not short on cash.

The only threat to Nathan and Penrith is the Tigers but I can’t imagine a father talking his son out of staying with a side that will challenge for premierships for the next 5 years to join WT.
But aren't we going to challenging for the premiership in the next 5 years as well? :D
Things can change very quickly when it comes to coaches. Robinson is safe while ever he meets with the expectations of having a top line roster at his disposal.. But he is never safe if they cant bag a premiership in the next couple of years.

While I've been very dismissive and negative lately... Always am every year at season over time come July..... The worst thing we could do at this stage is point Cleary.... Let him finish what he started... Lots of. Unanswered questions around the corner

No he wouldn't Hobbo. Playing behind a consistently good pack, Brooks would excel. Forwards win matches, the halves create and play off the back of them. We are so in need of 2 or 3 aggressive, hard running, off loading forwards it's just not funny!

My point being if brooks was at a decent club and couldn’t cut the mustard like he hasn’t , he’d be gone !

My point is that I think Brooks would cut the mustard at a 'decent' club that had a consistently strong pack of forwards. Hence, he wouldn't be shafted.
