I can see many people on here still giving it to the club for not having a major signing yet…I tend to sit back and wait until something positive is released by the club,when that is,I don’t know…
From seeing what is going on atm,I honestly believe that Madge and co don’t want to make the same mistakes like in the past;I also believe that with so many young guys in the system atm,Madge seems to want to create from within…I remember when we had some great young players when Sheens was here and he got that legend Gareth Ellis to the club,that was great…maybe Madge is working on the same formula as it seems to work for us…just my opinion though…

The biggest mistake is to do nothing, even a poor mistake is an attempt to fix the problem we have. But saying this, we just need to limit our exposure, spending $500k to attempt to fix a significant hole is in my view, worth it.

Doing nothing fixes nothing

I can see what your saying Lidcombe,however,how many holes did we try and fix before to no avail…Ballin,Reynolds come to mind…they did something and fixed nothing…
Im saying that Madge and co are being significantly more wary with the money they have to get the right player at the right price …they are doing something but are more careful than in the past so it seems…

Sure fire way to not fix it though is to do nothing.

Im not saying that they are doing nothing…Im saying that they are much more careful to not make the same errors that they have in the past…nobody knows whats going on atm behind the scenes…in my opinion the club is being so much more patient than in other years…its a good thing don’t you think?

No I am not happy with the decisions we have made this offseason, we are heading into 2020 with a weaker top 30 than 2019 while our decisions have made our opposition stronger. I am over hearing that next year will be better, we are in January 2020 and people are already saying we are building for 2021.

Im not really worried about 2021,it appears to me that Madge and the club are trying to find the right player now at the right price to fit within our roster to strengthen it so 2021 will have a better platform to work off since so many players come off contract in 2021…as many have seen before,success doesn’t come overnight and I think that the club is trying to get a stable roster together including all the young buys we have made so as our next few seasons will produce a premiership and a heck of a lot more stability within our playing ranks…

This club has been trying to get it right for the last 9 years, I don’t think it is too much to expect an improved top 30 for 2020? There is nothing new that the club has implemented that we haven’t tried in the past, it wasn’t that long ago we had the best crop of juniors coming through and that got us nowhere.

I’m not expecting a miracle overnight, I just want to see a better team than we fielded last year and as of right now that will not be the case!

Completely understand how you feel cochise,things have been bitterly disappointing over many years,however I honestly think that things will change for the better and I also think Madge will make the right decisions to put this club in a far more competitive field than before,it will just take sometime to rid us of the mess we have had…

Douehi also is a goal kicker and was one of the better ones coming through

I don’t have a problem with signing Douehi,I just think Madge is looking for the best outcome for the team and club without wasting time and money just to get a signature…I do have faith in Madge,Pascoe and co to not make the same errors as in the past…the old saying is ‘‘learn from your mistakes’’…

Thing is with CT you know what you get everytime he runs on for us…
with LM you never can be sure of 100% everytime…

posted in Contracts read more

Well seems that LM is Redfern bound…no great surprise,but I still think we will here soon from the club in regards to who we will have new in the roster before start of season…

Im done with all the speculation and innuendo that only makes some of the forum members agitated and frustrated…whatever happens will happen with or without our input to the negotiations…
