Why is there an opinion that there is an awesome coach out there with some magical ability to put old heads on young shoulders?
I’m not even sure if that is the issue but I agree that there is no coach with a magical ability to make us win games.
Truth is that any coach will struggle to rebuild this club, and a successful first grade coach us not necessarily going to be suitable at rebuilding with the current level our players are at.
I disagree with this. I think we have a decent team that is maybe missing a prop or two. I can see this team turning it around.
Other than the poor tactics early last season and the Farah circus, I can’t see too much JT has done wrong. Our defensive improvement was noticeable, he moved players on that didn’t want to be here or that were surplus to our needs, and he recruited depth.
Wouldn’t it be nice if he could just do his job and give it his best shot, without constantly being at risk of having Brutus stab him in the back.
I think Taylor was terrible last year. Poor media comments, the Farah debacle and poor game plans. I think that was as bad as it gets. On top of that our defence and attack was ordinary. We didn’t appear to be a well coached team.
I think there were some positive signs though. He appears to have let the Farah situation go, he appeared to recognise he came up with terrible game plans and changed that approach. I think he choose the team fairly well and he has recruited well.
I want to see him and the team do well but I view Taylor as one of the major risks going into a new season. I hope that he pulls it together.
