@tiger-magpie said in This is who we are...:

In July 1968 on a Thursday night, my dad took me to Lidcombe oval for my first ever Rugby League match. West Magpies played France who was out here for the World Cup. I remember it clearly, football under the rubbish lights at Lidcombe oval . Noel Kelly was the coach but did not play that night. Now, does this sound familiar. Wests scored more tries but missed their goals and lost after the siren to France. I was 7 years old and can remember it clearly. The deflated experience again that I had tonight.

It was so predictable. I mean I said to my son, " Mbye’s going to miss this kick at goal.!!!

We all knew tonight’s games was a worrying game for our run for the top eight when it should not have been We have seen it now for twenty years. All of us knew at 8 nil up …we have not won this.

All of us got annoyed that they only got urgent in the last 5 minutes.

All of us got angry at the poor kicks on the fifth tackle being kicked to the second-best fullback in the world instead of the third-best Jennings brother…not mention landing 20 metres away from the goal line

All of shook our heads at the fifth tackle options.

All of us wondered why we cant get out of our 20 meters like other sides after receiving a kick.

I follow the Wests Tigers with just as much passion as I did that night when I was 7. I grew up in the Balmain district but followed the Magpies. But I have to put up with this rubbish of a so-called professional club now for 55 years.
There is something wrong with the management of the club.

I mean what club with any idea of what a football roster looks like has big money tied up in six halfs and 5/8s ( Brookes , Walters, Benji , Mbye, Reynolds Doueihi). Of which none seem to be able to run a team.

We still do not have a goal kicker. Just buy one. Any winger faster than Jennings who can kick must be better.

We have not had a center since the two clubs joined 20 years ago. Mbye couldn’t break a Jatz biscuit let alone the line.

We have not had a running second row since Gareth Ellis. In fact, he was the last one and only reasonable buy the club has made in 20 years.

We hang on to players way too long. Name me one player the Roosters got rid of who went on to better things in the last 50 years.

Lawrence must go at the end of the year
Benji must go at the end of the year
Brookes needs to be told to test the market
Buy a goal kicker …go to the UK and get one. Don’t care if he cant run get a kicker who will kick at 80%
Get a running second row who is faster than me at 60 years old .
Mybye needs to be sacked as captain, as a centre and as first-grade player
Reynolds must go
Jennings must go.
Somebody (Brett Hodgson) needs to sit with Adam Doueihi and teach him positional play in defense.
Packer must go. Too old next year and too risky
Taylor must be moved on
Walters is not the answer.

Move to one ground and build a fortress
Get a proper head of the football division
Let Madge have 3 years then if no result move him on.
Do not sign him to an extension without results.

So still since that night in July 1968…I have that same old feeling after a game that I have come to expect.

Awesome heartfelt post mate. Send it to Pascoe

We are going nowhere and no one will convince me otherwise. All this crap about changed attitudes and culture is just talk. Nothing is changing. We always have been, and continue to be, soft, soft, soft.
Seriously, why would any decent prospect or established player want to be part of the garbage we dish up every friggen year. They’d be mad.
We all get duper excited when we sign a no name bloke from Bondi. That exemplifies our club. We need some decent bloody recruitment but I’ll be stuffed if I know how we will go it we deserve better than the constant shit this club throws up. 3 finals in 21 years. Nothing short of disgraceful.
And we keep addressing the same problems every bloody year. WHY DO WE NOT HAVE A GOAL KICKER??? It’s not good enough.
Man I’m sick of caring because the people employed to care obviously dont

Pretty hard to argue with that Steve. You’re dead right.

Like I don’t want a pity party but I’ll use my example - I really didn’t want to go to the game last night. It was cold and the viewing at the SCG is poor. But I went. I was loyal. I showed my support the best way I could.
How was that loyalty rewarded? By watching a repeat of total ineptitude.
