He hasn’t helped the situation by opting on a rotation system. Was only a couple weeks ago he said he still didn’t know what his best 17 was. How is that possible halfway into the season.

That last line sums it up.

"We can't let it define our season".

You can Russell. It's season over after today.
It's defined us to the bottom 8.
I'll go further than that, the bottom 4.

I was not a JT fan ,but his career was ruined by bringing Cleary on board, Cleary with the advantage of a blank cheque re recruitment, has not delivered
For 12 months Cleary has been lauded over for doing something JT couldn’t do, attract players. Easy to do when you have an open chequebook and your predecessor had a bag of rocks. Let’s not forget Potter either. Another coach who got dudded with a terrible cap. Pay is going through the same situation at the Dogs.
Thats what ive been saying for ages ....cleary and his team had more money to spend than any other coach we've had...at the time i smelt a panic buy to appease the critics....as i thought at the time most of the buys have obviously just came here for their over inflated pay cheques....the worry is most of these hacks were signed to long term contracts....i can see us being in the same poo as the dogs....a team of plodders that you cant afford to get rid of

Didn’t mention colour Pete, just stated the obvious, obviously you love giving cap money away without return
I didn't say you mentioned colour. When you generalise that islanders don't play with any heart, that's racist.
This is a forum mate, where people can express their opinions which I do t believe are racist, so stick your nose where it smells best

I’m afraid of our 30 players less than half are true NRL standard....i’ll Call this out now....Cleary will be gone after 2020, off to the Roosters who can attract and buy any player they want....think about it, if u were Cleary which club would you prefer to coach.....?a hand picked team of stars or a team of try hard wanna be’s......?
Were is the satisfaction in training a team of players who everyone despises because of the way they are assembled and Labeled as salary cap cheats
Ivan will stay
Ivan strikes me as a coach who wants to earn his wins
Not buy them

You can only sign players who are in the market place. To a man the new players are solid first graders, but not game changers. Cleary needed a base, which is what we now have. To expect immediate success coming off a culture of appalling performance and a woeful coaching group/football department is fanciful and unrealistic. Cleary is earning respect and trying to create an environment which will lead to success. I would say that having Farah back would be a brilliant move for reasons that are obvious to anyone that studies game management and ruck D

Was at the game amongst the 10,000 others, we looked terrible circa 2016...the only forward willing was Lawrence...terrible Tigers...next game at CSS will be lucky to attract 8,000

I thought that wests tigers were about winning and making the finals.
Started the season so well, only to see it fade away.
Maybe this result is the kick in the butt, they needed to get their act together....
Who knows.
What I do know dis-appointment of missing the finals is once again ever present and coming quickly :oops: :oops: .

Basil, our rescue dog, is wondering when wests tigers will win 25 - 18 :D

Always have been, always will be losers. A club born from failure destined to continue to fail. We have consistently been the worst club in the competition for 19yrs. One can only shake their head.
You sound like the bigger loser supporting them all of these years then? There are 15 other clubs to support. Find one and disappear.

Nonsense JTs career was ruined by his own inept coaching.Results like today were common during his tenure as coach.

Those results are becoming more regular with Clearys hand chosen team, moderate loss to Sharks, flogging today, no win in sight, another year down the drain.

Just because you don't realise you are being racist doesn't mean you aren't. Think about the fact that there might be islanders reading this who don't appreciate your baseless put downs.

I remember when we were on 10 points and 3rd on the ladder and Buzz predicted we would still place 10th.
I scoffed at the blog and called him a bitter fool.
Looks like he was right.

It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

Calls for Ivan's sacking are a little premature - just emotion speaking.
We've played 15 games and been very competitive in 29 halves - this was the first 40 minutes where we've really be towelled.
There were always going to be lows in the season and that's when the club needs its supporters most. I'm sticking - WT are my team and I'll wear the bad with the good.
