As hard as it may be for some to accept, it is possible to support the current coach whilst conceding that the former faced a multitude of problems during his time at the club. I suspect that if the team fails to do well in the coming years all the Taylor haters will become Cleary haters.

A rear guard action from the Taylor apologists? I thought this was all dead and buried when JT slipped out the backdoor and down the stairs. This is a new era and let’s not get reopen divisions within the supporters on this forum.

Oh ok if you say so. lol 😒

Simple. I was referring to the playing roster yesterday, not Cleary….

Even so, losing by one point to a team in the 8 who on paper should have given us a lapping is an indication the roster is performing as well as Cleary being a good manager of people. I still don’t understand your initial comment.

The problem lies in our roster, it has been a perpetual problem that has haunted us for the most part of a decade through poor cap management. Not JTs fault and not Ivan’s fault… Hell, Potter probably wasn’t actually as bad as anyone thought because he had a rough looking team to deal with also. Therefore the problem likely wasn’t JT like many believed. I remember quite a few on here saying a new coach would fix everything, but of course that takes time and wasn’t the main cause of our problems.

Cleary seems to be doing a decent job, and next year we’ll finally be able to see a team free of cap constraints.

Some want to rewrite history to suit their agenda. Was Taylor the messiah?, no, but was he only appointed in the shadow of the preseason commencing at a club lumbered with an already bulging salary cap, to be a coach with virtually no say in further recruitment?, damn right he was.

What’s more, he had to put up with being undermined by a captain that got rid of his predecessor/s. After a decision was made to remove the problem, the incoming CEO replacing the one that had perpetuated our already diabolical cap position, reneged on the backing of the coach and probably caused another another year of bloodletting, not to mention a poorer bargaining position in ridding the club of a then further declined and aged player.

Does anyone on here really not think that Taylor was placed in an untenable position by being told to apologise to a captain that was undermining him in front of the squad, or that it was anything other than a ridiculous decision?

Cleary might not be coaching at one of the rich glamour clubs, but any incoming club coach would be envious of the scope available to him in his first full season at WT.

Oh go away with all your common sense, you’re spoiling the outrage. 😉

Startting to become evident that JT wasn’t the problem.

I’m starting to think you actually enjoy the team losing just so you can keep going on about JT. We lost by 1 point to a team firmly in the top 8. We almost beat manly last week and they were coming 4th. We are blooding some great youngsters in marsters, twal and eisenhuth. Funny how you used to give it to the supporters because you thought they wanted a loss so they can get rid of JT. Your just as bad. Move on, JT is gone, was never a good coach and how about you get behind the team and move on from your JT obsession.

I have no issue with Cleary, actually I’m a big fan. But if Taylor was the problem, why have we only won 3 games since he was sacked?

I think Taylor was clearly part of the problem and in reality a significant part of the problem. It’s more his fault we’ve only won 3 games since he was sacked than Cleary’s. It’s his team minus Moses that is currently playing out there. That is the team that he assembled. Give Cleary some time to develop a better squad and see how he goes.

lol blaming last year’s coach for the team only winning 3 games this season. Now I’ve heard everything.

I understand taking the two to get a psychological advantage but I don’t think the current team understands the concept. So should have went for the try.

Taylor got them to what place last year? Cleary has got them where this year? It ain’t rocket science unless you lack the ability to set aside your hatred of the former coach to see what is right in front of your eyes. :blah

Surely you are joking? You seriously aren’t comparing last season to this based purely on ladder position are you?

No.

A positive move for sure.
