Finding myself quite a bit depressed over tonight’s game. I know we are building towards the right thing but tonight’s game seemed like such a backwards step.

Madge is being patient in building the club and that’s the right thing to do but it’s hard to be patient as a fan when we’ve been poor for so long. Happy to give Madge a good 5 years to build us up but gee it’s gonna be tough until then. I’ve got faith in him though

Concerned about our spine next year, Grant will be gone, we need a 5/8 and brooks has been in poor form the last month and a bit. If he doesn’t improve we will be screwed.

Hard being a tigers supporter. I wish we were like roosters or storm always being a premiership threat. Time for bed I think before I get too much more upset 😂

Next year will be the same mate

Suck it up 😂

I know that’s why I’m sad 😂😭 I know it takes time but why does it have to be so long. Like I said madge is doing it the right way just wish we could have a magic instant fix.

It’ll take 3 more years easy and that’s if Madge hangs around

We need to do what Parra have done and just buy seasoned pros …

I think what we are all searching for in our group of players,and its pretty important if you want to win games and play finals footy…

ABILITY…(seems some of our squad were behind the door when the good Lord was handing it out)

Well how did they make it this far ?
It’s poor recruitment and piss poor management that’s what is !

I’ve had enough

But you cant blame Madge for previous recruitment failures he is doing what he can to make this lot NRL competative,coaching good young players while trying to get the best out of the experienced ones…
You really have to look at the simplest of errors made by guys who have been at this level for a long time and they do it regularly eg ET giving penalties away MCK spilt ball first touch,Mbye rushing in defense and leaving young debutant hanging out to dry with seasoned players coming at him and I can keep going on…As soon as Madge gets a chance to clear the roster it cant come quick enough and the club will be much better for it…

Pretty much. Same crap different year. Best pre-season ever will be mentioned again too!

Also expect lots of:

“The boys have really bought in to what we’re doing”
“Lots of faith in the playing group”
“80 minute performances”

…and its Brooks’s team 😂

And therein lies the problem…

Brooks played well his defence was solid all night.Some people just like to criticise him and Nof because they can

why don’t you forum members that continue to knock Brooks go and support another team. He was not the reason we lost the game our forwards could not go forward and as per some forum members have alluded to we should be paying 2 props for go forward, I blame Madge for this loss not selecting a forward pack that could not make yards, shows however we are still a thereabouts team.

What positives can you give me about Brooks game that relate to being a good half from tonight

Well i cant give you any positives as the forwards did not make it past the advantage line, nor did the the wingers or fullback have much impact.
i cant say i saw Mybe taking a run but i did see brooks defending well all night,
sorry but your a nuffie and would love to run at you and see if you could tackle,

Bloody hell, what game were you watching?

shite game to be honest but it you think Mybe performed you need wide rim glasses

Im not going to bag Brooks for tonights game,all the starting backline played woefully except for Hoffman(did well on debut,he was skinned by his own mates )Douhie did ok as well…

@Jedi_Tiger said in We need a new captain:

Mmbye is not that bad a captain we dont have anyone else except Marahall.
It is a tough balance as some on here bagged out Robbie for his passion

Not only a new captain…nearly 1/2 a new squad roster…

posted in Season 2020 read more

ET lived up to his reputation of giving stupid penalties away again tonight…6 again calls against him to keep Souths rolling up field …good tackler,but has to realise the new rules…

I think it’s fair to say that all the players coming off contract at the end of the year except for McIntyre and Seyfarth should be shown door, besides the two mentioned all the other players have had plenty of time and opportunities to prove their worth to this club…Enough is enough get rid of them Madge.

Wouldn’t mind short, cheap contracts for those 2. Eiso been decent the last couple weeks too and deserving another short contract if we can negotiate at a fair price

In my opinion Eiso should be given his marching orders as well…I think any player that decides to start playing half decent games of football in the last year of his contract isn’t worth the time or money.

A good valid point. He does seem to be more suited to a starting role with big minutes to toil away, as opposed to small stints which he may have had previously. Though I do see the reasoning behind your point. He’s replaceable if he goes, but personally I would be willing to let him stay for a small price.

I just think it’s all a little bit to late from Matt his been with the club for quite sometime now.

Only thing I will say Lily is Matt has improved heaps under Madges coaching…

Come on Strongee,you don’t have to name call us because we differ from your opinion…

Yeah…Keyboard coaches…smh

Who’s a keyboard coach ? You’re getting in an echo chamber about how crap he is . And it has about as much grasp with reality as flat earth.
He’s not crap . He’s good . He’s not elite. Has a lot of improving to do . And he’s paid as an above average player . He’s not paid a 1 mil . He’s paid 600-700 , which is value for what he provides .
That’s the end of discussion . There is not 1 half that is remotely close to available that anyone in their right mind would swap him for .
It’s not an opinion if it’s outrageous. And there’s infinite stats that back me up , as well as the obvious stat of how rubbish we looked with benji and josh in rounds 1 and 2 .

Strongee, I owe you an explanation and an apology. I agree with you 1000%. I was actually having a go at True Tigers hypocrisy, where he had a go at you for “name calling” whereas in another thread he calls anyone who isnt a fan of Josh Reynolds “armchair coaches”. The irony escapes him and doesnt translate well over two different threads.

Onward mate, keep fighting the fight.

Tiger5150,you are right I called some people keyboard coaches,however I didn’t call them morons …***.big difference*** …I used a term that many have used before,I didn’t degrade them as such and its good that Strongee has apologised it means he is man enough to understand he said the wrong thing…I will also apologise if I offended anyone using my terminology…

If there is a big difference and you think you didnt degrade anyone, why are you apologising?

Tiger5150,I said IF I OFFENDED anyone I apologise,it wasnt meant to,but I think if you think Im that big of an offensive guy,leave it at that you seem to have made your point and made a big deal out of it…I think there is a big difference using computer terminology and the term morons…but Strongee has done the right thing and so have I…

@boonboon said in Wests Tigers Team v Souths Rd 9:

It wasnt Benjis attack that he was dropped for it was his horrible defence

This is the point I made earlier,as great as Benji has been for us and is a club legend,Madge builds his gameplans on defence and if we are all honest Benji has some bad defensive stats and this is why Madge has opted for change…
Its not a matter of punishment that Benji was put on the bench it was more of a call to sharpen his defensive issues and work his way back into the team…
I hope he gets a run tonight to see how well he goes both in attack and defence…
