I think we should try hard to get AD & AJ to improve backline. If we have to pay overs so be it. Once we can improve and get into the finals hopefully we can turn perceptions around and not be paying overs and disrespected by both clubs, player managers and players.

I find it incredible we have been pushing the final 8 last few years and coming 9th at seasons end, yet the troika of clubs, managers and players think less of us than Titans and the others regualrly below us.

Do you really think that AJ and Doueihi will really take this squad deep into the finals or even in the finals in general?

Yes, they will improve what we currently have.

I feel like there’s zero downside to Doueihi? Doesnt work out at fullback we got a 5/8 for Benji? Worst case scenario we finally get some size on the wings.

I do worry about succession planning. Who is the candidate to replace Benji?

I’m gonna say a name that may cop some backlash but I honestly think Jack Bird could be a good signing for us, definitely will not be commanding the money he is getting currently and would almost certainly have Brisbane chip in a bit for his final year of his contract and could also maybe insert a club option in the second year depending on his form

He’s still only 24 and maybe a change of scenery and coming back to Sydney could do him good

Would much prefer to have Bird over Doueihi at the club imo

Hasn’t Bird had a lot of injuries? At his best it would be great to get him.

Don’t get this love for Douhi. 500k is way overs IMO.

A solid player but I certainly haven’t seen anything to suggest he is worth that much to any club. Good luck to him if he gets it.

If we are getting him, I hope it’s for a specific position. We already have Mbye as a very high priced utility. At least AD would be on less coin.

I am still stunned Doueihi is on 500K. There is NO way Souths are cap compliant if he’s on something that insane when they have Gagai, AJ, Walker, Reynolds etc etc etc

Also forgot they brought back Bryson Goodwin. Just collecting backs…

Who said Douehi is on 500 k

Article posted a few pages back. True or not, I don’t know, but that’s where that came from.

OK …yeah I highly doubt anyone would be paying 500 k for a fringe player …well maybe us …but not a real club

Give it a rest. Why do you bother to support the club?

Because I have a heavy investment …43 years …1st year since the WT’s I didn’t re join as a member

Its about time this club repaid ALL of us for our investments

And lastly it’s simple …don’t like my posts , put me on foe or don’t read them , no one stuck a gun to your head

Will do. I’ve been following magpies since 1965 and WT since inception, I too have a big emotional investment in the club. Anyhow I haven’t made foes before on forums but I think I’ll have to here. Cheers.

Like every season, there will be plenty of players breaking contracts and moving clubs in 2020 so there will be several opportunities to buy what we need.

Or lose someone.

Lighten up man.

News is AJ wants to see out his contract with Souths and is determined to stay put. Let’s see how that works out for him. On the other hand Marwene Hiroti is very keen. He’s on a train and trial with the Sharks but his preference is the Tigers, most likely more opportunities.

Wheee did you see that?

A source at Souths

That’s a shame and surprising. With us has the chance to play fullback and get good money. There’s a chance with Souths he doesn’t make first grade. Weird.

He might stick it out til June. But when he’s In reggies behind

Mitchell
Graham
Burns
Roberts
Gagai

He probably changes his mind.

Too late for him by then. WT can’t wait that long for a spine position occupant.

Quote: AJ has a big offer from the Tigers in hand. He has until Friday to accept. Not sure of his intentions or desires, however he would be absolutely crazy not to take it in my opinion.

FWIW

Getting desperate now, How about saving your money for JAC.
Is Madge like Cleary can only sign players he used to coach.
Souths suck savs don’t help them out.

Because JAC isn’t coming. Why would he come? Would ruin his rep chances…

Come on… this is nuts. Some posters are so negative at the moment. Chill fellas. I know everyone has an opinion and a free mind but geez, the sun comes up tomorrow - even for WT supporters.
