I have a question

Post by king sirro » Fri 02 Jul, 2010 8:45 pm

Who's job is it to make sure a football side plays with enthusiasm, intensity and commitment week in week out?

It doesnt matter if we go on to win tonight, the fact is we're a side that can get up for 1, 2 or maybe even 3 games, but we all know our commitment will drop back down again. I dont care if we have an off day, all sides do, but i cant handle when we play with no enthusiasm. Its simple, but a vital ingrediant to success.

My answer to my question is the coach. Players can always have off days and we can accept that, but its up to the coach to ensure the squad is working as one and enters each game with commitment and enthusiasm, if they play bad but have a dig, so be it.

Maybe Sheens supporters are right, he's a great coach, but maybe he just cant do what we need in regards to man management to get team to play with heart week in week out.

We dont expect miracles, but we expect a side that turns up every week, not just when they feel like it.

In my eyes this has been a very disappointing year for us...I believe our position on the ladder has more to do with the form of other sides rather than our own brilliance.

My answer is each individual team member, who should be encouraging other team members

We deserved nothing tonite, that was utter crap
I dont know how tigers fans in the crowd could cheer at the end of that rubbish
You really need to look at TONITE...not dismiss that and think of last year, the refs, souths, anything else...we were s***, nothing less and deserve [automatically edited] all

Defence and the scoreboard kept us in it........

I agree Sheens needs to get more out of his senior players.....

I think the OP listened to Gould a little too much. Remember it was very wet and sloshy out there by the end.

Thats not true Sennex....Sirro is right on the money.

We are supposedly the third best side so far this year...all that I see is an absolute rabble with a few freaks thrown in.

the thread was made at halftime. Gould was critical but not too bad, he went very critical after halftime. Brisbane played in the same conditions and played with enthusiasm, we didnt.

i think that we were actually missing beau ryan in that department. honestly the number of times i have seen ryan gee the team up after a good play, a try, or even a bad play shows what an influence he has when it comes to enthusiasm.
hopefully his back next week will need him

Really? When did Gould suggest its up to the coach to get us turning up each week? Or when did he even infer that?After all, thats what my post is about. Word for word with Gould, not in this case.

This. He may not be the greatest player but Beau Ryan is the Wests Tigers enthusiasm.
