Question for everyone here - Pascoe comes out in the next day or two and confirms Cleary will be coach in 2019/20, would you buy a membership? Season tickets? How would you respond?
I already have. I support the team, regardless of who the coach is.

Screw the lot of them. That funny little man Geoff Toovey isn't doing anything at the moment, he coaches at 58%, comes cheap, and has passion. We've had a lot worse than him before....
I hear that he’s in some sort of investigation.

GNR we might as well continue the discussion here.l being that the other is the poll thread...
I just read this and have trouble with it.
I can’t belive you are apathetic.
No poster here is!

Anyway, being that Hasler is putting his hand up for the manly job, why aren’t we going for Toovey??? That guy is an inspiration. Toughest player I ever saw. A premiership winning coach.
No brainer.

When I thought he had some integrity I would have said Cleary wouldn't do that but we know that bird has flown. If I was WT and he does decide to play hardball I would:
a) appoint a coach for 2019 and beyond as they appear to be doing
b) call the new coach head of football operations or something else but they would be the coach
c) give Cleary no role with the team at all, effectively sidelining him.

The downside is we'd have to keep paying him but the upside is Cleary sits virtually idle for two years. I can't imagine that would please Cleary or Penrith and he'd be much more likely to seek a release to go to Penrith. If he does WT would not be liable for a payout.
I suggested pretty much this some time ago but it didn’t get any legs, the only difference is that I’d insist that Cleary did the post match presser, he would be the “ coach” after all
Been mentioned before, youd think thered be a clause or job description in his contract ''head coach -wests tigers -nrl"...we could be in breach of contract
That's possible but I very much doubt it. Clubs wouldn't want to bind their hands that tight and, in any event, there'd be workarounds.
aah yeh rightio then ;)

Haven't been a member for a couple of seasons but would still get to games I could get to. I support the club. I don't support coaches or players.

I’ll alao sign up when the draw comes out. Like to see what games we have and make sure I can make it to most (although I always end up getting a full package every year). Doesn’t matter who the coach is to me.

I’d be surprised if the draw is out this week it’s normally mid November/ early December

What do we put the Bennet <> Newcastle disaster down to???

He like Hassler has the propensity to wreak havoc to a salary cap.

Im cautious of Bennet though he is a man that would theoretically continue the culture change we need on the park
Being in Newcastle I do have an opinion on this. Without Tinkler the Knights would not have afforded Bennett. So it is impossible to review the period of Bennett at Newcastle without bringing Tinkler into it.

Under Bennett the First Grade side was competitive, however the junior grades improved dramatically and were quite successful. I think if Bennett had of stuck it out long term he would have had success, however Tinklers poor financial management brought Bennetts time to an end.

My understanding is it is Bennetts support staff that cost the $$$, so I am not sure how we would afford him but I think it would be a really big boost for the club from the ground up.
Thats a good and different take on it. So many are quick to say it was a failure but it wasnt all bad or anywhere near all Wayne Bennett's fault as you have pointed out.
Its an opinion!

I have always supported the coach who my club appoints because I support the club first and foremost. The same applies to players; I won't stop supporting my club because it signs or gets rid of any individual player. Hence, I always allow my membership to roll over at season's end.

On the matter of who will be coaching Wests Tigers next year, there has been nothing of any substance written here since TYGA's last post. In fact most of it is just drivel (yes, it's drivel, not dribble)

A supercomputer somewhere in the world just burst into flames trying to calculate the odds of that happening.
He’s already said that, to the players,
If he had said it even half as conclusively as the words of TT above convey and a few days earlier, little doubt that there would have been a lot less, if any conjecture in the initial weeks post statement.
We have the time to sit around and dissect every syllable that’s said during any of our perceived disasters,
Sometimes other people don’t say the things that we want them too, but no matter what they say, there’d be some here , that will always complain that the announcement/ statement isn’t what they want to hear,
We don’t matter, and Coaches/Clubs/Players, all at some times puts out press releases that mean Bugger All.
And even if their releases are 100% accurate, someone is bound to misunderstand, , or. object to , or simply fail to understand what some of the wording means
They can’t please us all ........
Didn't take more than a few minutes to dissect his press release , yet Cleary took 5 days to sort out the statement that said bugger all, as a short sentence from TT clearly shows. Also, unless Chris Lawrence is a liar, Ivan certainly told him no such thing.

Tell you the truth I am more interested in what players we might sign for 2019 than the coaching soap opera. Although I guess any signings will be probably linked to the new coach. Read in a post a few days ago there is a board meeting tomorrow night, so maybe a call will be made than
