No chance a player would be signed without our coach being involved especially a marquee player to boot. Our coach has been vocal about our cap and having it under control and ensuring he has players who want to be apart of what he is building.
re Pascoe it’s not his job to sign players anyway, besides which he is a collaborative person… 100% if Mitchell joins Madge would have discussed with Mitchell and approve of it for it to happen.
I simply do not believe it’s credible that Pascoe would sign someone without talking to Madge. The world doesn’t work that way.
Pascoe and hartigan could do some of the groundwork with his agent, sure. Especially since he’s not in the country. Would they sign him before Madge gets back on Monday? Not a chance.
If true about LM I’m ok with it. Million dollar contracts are becoming commonplace nowadays for decent rep players. I sit back and think about players on our roster on over-priced contracts and then a young Mitchell who can be a match winner - it’s a no-brainer.
Geez the Roosters were offering him $800k in a team of stars! There are people on here who would criticise our management for any signing whatever but if we had Mitchell this year we would’ve played finals football. Nuff said!
Its a romantic notion that Maguire calls all the shots. Real 1970’s stuff.
We set structures in place with quality people like Pascoe and Hartigan to help run the club. Looks like that might be exactly what they are doing.
Anyone thinking they are doing something without Maguires knowledge is stuck in that 1970’s way of thinking. Modern football clubs are run like this.
@Snake I don’t think anyone here believes that he’s signed, but rather that there are ongoing conversations between the club, Maguire and Mitchell and his management.
True. I think the has at least a 50-50 chance. Whatever happens, happens.
