jesus people give the bloke a chance to get the team he wants without the stupid contracts. The bipolarness of this forum is crazy

100%… One week after a win there’s talk about extending Madge and all the Madge haters are quiet, then after the loss they were waiting for they come out in full force with talk about sacking him.

I would extend him now and give him full licence to remove any and all players who are not performing.No more having players living on their names reputations or past glories.They are the problem not the answer

Will you stop. Well over 20 players in the squad were signed/re-signed by him.

People need to look at our team stats to rate how Maguire is going. We are in the top four to five teams in most areas other than goal kicking. If Madgeball is what has got us second in scoring tries with with a spine and backline no one rates he must be doing something right.

Let’s get one thing clear, Madge will not fail. His perception of failure may be different than a fans desire. He is exactly what this club needs … a big shake up. The players went through the motions yesterday. They were involved but not committed. The Warriors sensed their reluctance for the game and went for the doctor. Where were the backline moves?

If Madge fails to turn the WT into a successful team, and by this I mean semi finals footy in 2021 and beyond if he stays…I see the club throwing in the towel…

I honestly wish they would right now, there’s gotta be more to life than following a bunch of perennial losers year after year after year - it does nothing for my mental health.

This year I was very hesitant about becoming a member of the club, as I have been for the past 13 years. But they made what I thought was a couple of good signings so I decided to stay on as a member…but honestly this mob are just awful, nothing seems to change does it ! 😠

Apparently we have a good coach and a lot of the players are good quality, but this just doesn’t convert to wins, we seem to have too many ups and downs, most inconsistent no heart., and no pride it seems- and yes as ardent followers of this club, I believe it can have some effect on our mental health👎 ( and the coaches too I’m thinking )

I wouldn’t be surprised if Madge throws in the towel, most of the time after these losses he looks as if he’s be crying, as most of us are almost doing as well…just not good enough.
To me this loss puts and end to our season😥

Jeez, you give up easy.

Maybe you need some resilience that you think the team needs.

Madge will be giving them crying at the next session - they’ll probably
wish they hadn’t been born.

Maguire is not the problem it is the players he inherited. The juniors not playing this year has not helped. Need to get rid of overpaid players and say good bye to Lawrence and Marshall season end. I would be blooding players like Madden now with eye on 2021. Give Dylan Smith a go at full back or new signing AJ. Still hurting from Cleary legacy.

He re-signed Benji and Lawrence. In fact he signed or re-signed >70% of the team. Why did he do these signings or re-signings if they’re no good?

We couldn’t get anyone better Avo on a one year deal. Even though they have served there purpose for 2020, pretty sure he won’t sign them again for next year.

We need to get rid of the dead wood, especially the overpaid dopes like Jennings and Mcqueen, Smith, do not put Taylor in these groups but should not be renewed (they will go at the end of the year). Bit harder to get rid of the parasites like Mbye, Reynolds, Chee-Kam etc. because of the contract lengths.

That’s 4 definite spots and three more if you could find someone stupid enough to take them.

Have Stefano coming and that leaves three with approx. 800 to spend, (2.4 mill. if you could get rid of the other three) we need to make those signings really count.

It ain’t easy with what cap we have - probably will have to give a few of our better players the chop to get better than them.

If Madge can’t fix us no one can. We can’t take much more of this.

When he was giving them the spray at half time they looked like they’d clocked off… not a good sign.

How many sprays can a grown man take ?
I woulda told him to get …

I feel maybe they did tell him that @hobbo1, as there was certainly no improvement in their attitude in the 2nd half…maybe even worse imo.

I’d been looking forward to the game all week, then we turn the tele on and get dished up tripe (like my Mother used to cook, yuckypoos) by… “Tigers”… I don’t think so… more like meek little pussy cats being content to have a snooze after catching their first mouse ie…scoring 2 tries against a depleted Warriors team that had more guts and determination to win the game than we did.
We have a mentally weak team.
The only answer is to feed the whole team with Viagra after each win, so they can keep it UP ( ie a winning attitude… just for you naughty people out there who may be thinking otherwise) and win their next game.
Go the mighty Viagra Tigers!
An added bonus…Viagra as a new front of shorts sponsor… in the appropriate place… with a big bulge underneath from all the players wearing boxes similar to cricket players to protect their newly found and precious swollen pride.

We would win, then lose the 2 points for taking performance enhancing drugs.

😀

Madge could get sacked before he gets the chance to succeed.

The cornerstone of long term success lies in the team’s continuity. In fact that could be said for any organisation. Madge is making all the right moves imho. The club cannot be successful if it continues to treat players like it treated Farah. Long term servants at the club need to be sent off with dignity, respect and gratitude in the hope that young players strive to emulate their success. These old players need to be around the club as a reminder. Madge got Blocker to have a word of encouragement with Blore before his debut. This is part of the cultural shift I find very pleasing. Madge has taken on a huge job , having to walk in with his fireman’s hat for a while.

Those that keep on carrying on about Madge signing 15 of 17 that played last night, still don’t get it.

Yes he resigned them, but the crucial point is, the contracts of Reynolds, Mbye and Packer are not his doing, and that is what’s stuffing up our roster.

He lost to a warriors team who were relying on other teams discarded players to actually field a team.

Thing about Warriors is I thought they were quite good, but Tigers gave them the opportunity to grow into the match. Not just about goal kicking, because 18 points would have been great, but just that we had them in real real trouble after 20 mins, and we should not have been gassed or complacent because we’d done most of the attacking.

Then Lawton literally strolls over and from then on Warriors are keenly in the contest. We were probably 1 try away from really taking the game from the Warriors, like we have done in matches vs Cowboys, Dogs, Broncos, but instead we lost our composure and that was enough.

The Warriors have a lot of blokes playing for careers, for pride or just for a run and it can make a side like that very dangerous. Everyone saw how close they got to the Roosters last week, despite being a few players better off last week than this week. They had blokes playing for pride and taking the opportunity afforded to them. Low error rates, tactical offloading…very UN-Warriors-like in my opinion.

I can applaud the Warriors for that application, but they will still struggle to win matches in 2020 because ultimately you need talent with your grit. But, from game to game, Warriors will put in a really big-hearted performance and hot/cold teams like Tigers will fall to them. Cronulla are another team like us, just with more talent, but they are borderline losing to some of the worse teams going around and seem to just win enough to keep in the Top 8. But this up/down style of Cronulla will kill them in the finals if they make it, same as it did last year.

Yeh, that’s true gall. It would not surprise me because I doubt the board realise how much influence they have on outcomes? I don’t like being so critical but after 20 years it has to be said.

Would the result had been different had not Mbye Reynolds and Packer been in the squad who he didn’t sign/re-sign or extend …I guess is the question then…

Not sure …just see it as an excuse to fail…

This’ an incredibly stupid comment from you, Geo. lol… football brains? Nowhere to be seen

Well if the players played with the same enthusiasm as we did the last few weeks we should have won easily, they did’nt.
I heard Madge’s press conference prior and he was going on about the NZ and looking forward to having a chat with SBW.
To me that is not focused on what is required for this week with the Tigers.
His selections were questionable, he is persevering with a Captain that is not playing well at centre, Half back on the bench ridiculous.
Twal not fit was he on holidays after the injury, should of been on the bench.
Grant tired and needed a break.
I also don’t mind giving players a spray but at half time i would have preferred a game plan instead and a spray later, the players are not respecting the coach and i think he has already lost the dressing room.

He has a year to run. i would rather see how we go when we get rid of some more dead wood this off season.
To also attract good seasoned players that we need for our spine they have to also want to play for the coach, i saw nothing at half time where the players respected what he was saying. We were completing our sets, In front if i was a player i would have thought give us a break we are trying but key players are letting us down.
What’s the game plan in the 2nd half coach, when is brooks on??
Walters was doing nothing i would have made changes at half time, that would have sent a message to the team instead of a spray.
