Coaches

Post by Milky » Sat 31 Mar, 2018 10:53 pm

Has there ever been a season where a coach didn’t get sacked or replaced?

Everyone is looking safe at the moment...

Only coach who was under heat was Griffin and he’s looking safe...

Ricky won’t get booted, too much politics involved..

Trent Robinson maybe?

Robinson is safe as a house. If Parra don’t win soon, expect the heat to be on Arthur.

Have to give credit to Kearney. I fully expected him to be out of a job by the end of the season, but the Warriors look as good as they have ever looked. What they did tonight without SJ was damn impressive. Well done Mr Kearney.

Depending on the result of Mondays game BA will be under huge pressure.

Parra fans are vocal about the issue at the moment with most putting the blame on BA.

At very least, Arthur has to take some responsibility for signing players for positions they already have covered while neglecting the front row and hooker.

I would be fuming if I was a Parra fan and saw how good Twal has been for us.

The titans will be looking for a new coach.
Canberra will be looking for Don Furner's skalp!

Funny too, Canberra lost Wayne Bennett as coach and replaced him with Tim Sheens. Who then goes on to take them to the premierships 3 times. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_C ... rs_coaches

This thread makes me think of Sheens. Stuart and to a lesser extent probably Arthur are under pressure, having both played finals within the last 2 years. Sheens missed the finals 4 years in a row and was never under an ounce of pressure. You could say it’s becsuse Sheens won a premiership, but so did Maguire at Souths. And he got punted for missing the finals twice. Sheens was made of Teflon.

Sheensy got voted a better coach than Bali Bellyache on NRL 360 last night. Great stuff!

Plenty of people not happy with Bennett up North and with Walters walking out I would think that his time may come before the end of the season.

Sticky Stuart won't last much longer. Players run things these days. I can't see how he has their support after the ways he carries on.

I also heard Gus Gould say that Anthony Griffin is safe. So he's obviously outta there too.

Brad Arthur deserves more of a chance after Parra's salary cap and board stuff ups but no doubt the Eels will take the easy option and sack the coach.
