I’ll tell you another thing about Madge. There’s not another coach in the nrl could have got us to within a whisker of playing finals footy.
To those who think we can’t win the gf in 2020, did you also have that opinion in January 2005?

2005 had a golden crop coming through.

A ball playing Origin class FB.

A great, big, winger in Richards.

A top class GK.

One of the best halves pairings of the decade.

If you can see all that being possible in our 2020 backline, then I’d suggest you rush down to the TAB.

You saw that in January 2005?
Wow

If souffs truly don’t have a cap issue for this year then why would they encourage a young player who their coach “thinks highly of” to negotiate elsewhere with 2 yrs left to run on his current contract… smoke & mirrors…
At the very least Douehi is solid depth for souffs given the fact LM’s fitness will be targeted by opposition teams and will likely pick up an injury or 2 sometime this year.

I’d say call their bluff for this season because they’re most definitely gonna feel the cap squeeze next year. Then when they’re feeling the pinch, and if he’s still available, demand they pay 1/2 the freight(250K) for his final year.

This isn’t a do or die signing for us so it has to work in our favor, otherwise focus on the bigger fish next off season.

Mate we focused on the biggest fish this year and didn’t land him ,are we going to use different bait next year

I get that, but I also think every situation is unique and it seems LM had his sights set on souffs this whole time. Perfect situation for him on & off the field given he’s clearly higher maintenance than most and souffs have their culture set up to manage it better than us.

2021 negotiations is where Tigers management will determine their fate. Too many good players off contract that fill our exact needs. Add to that the dead weight contracts which are expiring from the cleary era puts a lot more pressure on recruitment wins considering it’ll be the best cap situation the club has ever been in…

I truly hope you are right ,but it doesn’t always work out well for tigers fan’s if we can’t make the finals this season I worry how we will attract quality players to the club for 2021

You worry how we will attract players in future?
Money, money, money.

Don’t worry about these last few weeks, Latrell wanted to be at Souths pure and simple. His dad confirmed we were close and he waited for Souths to get sorted.

90% of players will come for the ‘right price’

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.

Funny how some think they have some God given right to tell others how to support their club

Kinda like when you imply that people are idiots because they consider the club to be making the right moves by doing better in the front office and slagging people for “accepting mediocrity?”

No not at all , as I always say it just surprises me how intelligent people (like yourself ) openly put up with this club’s ineptitude but will hang players who leave us out to dry

Its just hypocritical in my opinion …it’s never the clubs fault …ever

Yeah Yeah I know we will turn it round next year …

The Roosters are always looking for supporters, they’d be a good fit for you.

But wait … what could you possibly complain about over there?

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

Pascoe said there will be nothing this week

Sooo

He actually said ‘not at this stage’

We have all the money but no one wants to come here.

I think we should temper this summation. There were very few off contract players this off season, the majority of players prefer to stay with their current club plus the Tigers need to be selective about their signings, not just grab anyone. Ever the optimist, I think our opportunities will come. We just need to be patient.

Fair, and it’s 100% frustration from my end.

But after Matterson (and letting go of Esan) we really needed a win, and so far it’s been disappointing. Luciano is a good signing don’t get me wrong, but we lack a game breaker and I was hoping we’d get one this off-season.

Still plenty of time to go.

My Biggest Frustration is the fact we released Matterson & Marsters without getting anything back or having replacements in place. I think if we played hardball we would of got something or held off until we had replacements but also understand why we did this.
I think we will regret the Marsters one as he was injured last year and him been fully fit will be back to his best…

We did not get nothing. We received full value of his contract plus 3-4 months of this yers salary which the club would be up for while negotiating a suitable release deal.
So on my maths that’s around +$500k.
Hardly nothing.

i think what he meant is that we released two of our starting first grade players and have been unable to use the money to strengthen our lineup. Leilua is a fine signing but he is not top line. Not meaning to be critical of the club but this offseason’s recruitment (to date) has been a failure.

Yes but the fat lady did not do her performance yet!

Yah hoping we can announce Stefano a year earlier this week.

I’m pretty sure we’ll get him for this season but a blind man can see that Parra won’t release him until the very last minute. They’re only doing it so he isn’t training with our squad and learning our plays so when he eventually does come he will be at least a month away from being any sort of starting form.

Let me make this very clear and simple - this thread is for signing rumours. Keep it at that.

Any more crap about Balmain/Wests in this thread will be deleted.

You took your sweet time about it.
