So an article up on NRL.com is saying that Maguire has been interviewed by the broncos for 2020 so this may drag out for a bit longer despite what The Pom said earlier.


Yes I believe we want Bennett. The fastest way to get him might be to tell everyone we are going to sign the guy they want to replace him.
Its an opinion!

I wonder if we do psychometric testing of coaching candidates as well?

(yes, I had to google that too)

yeah Ill still get a membership, Club supporter, not individuals...waiting for the draw to be released...when is that anyone know?
This week apparently.
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
It was supposed to be out this week, but its been pushed back to next week. Something to do with Parramatta stadium.
WSS it's not Parra's Stadium.

sign Madge for 4 years and put all the speculation to bed. Uncle Wayne although obviously a top coach, is a traveling side show and we need a bloke without whistles and fan fare. In a way similar to Ivan. a quite achiever and we need a bloke long term. Basically we need this put to bed and the last thing we need is this to drag out for another year

Why stop at 4 years, why not sign for him for 10. It’s not like contracts matter.

Absolutely spot on! My only concern is I don’t think Madge has the same pulling power as Bennett when it comes to bringing good players along with him, especially since he hasn’t had a gig in the NRL for a couple of years. Who would follow him here?

And what has the Club said about Maguire , to get everyone all excited about.
Just looked , and not a word about him.
The Poms post this afternoon. Said Maguire was the front runner.
That was from article somewhere This morning, just the same source as most things that we’ve read for the last couple of months, a “journo”.
No offence Pom, but unless it comes from someone involved it’s just another rumour

There are quotes from Penrith and from Pascoe confirming what most people with common sense can see has happened with Ivan the terrible.

Parra has refused to sign up to play there , sounded like some dispute over costs

I'd be looking at kiwi test players coming off contract within the the next season or two. I'm sure being coach of NZ would help in getting players to the club in my opinion.
No more plodders!

That would be great if they stayed at ANZ we could be the sole tenants and make the place our own.

Neither would I. Did we sign any Australian players while Sheens was in charge.

Or Origin players signing with their coaches club. You are essentially believing that players will leave their current clubs to play under a coach who they play under 4 or 5 times a year. It’s drawing a pretty long bow.

What the actual :x :x :x

it wasnt accidentally, it was a mantra he used to inspire the guys who were left.
No it wasnt...he mentioned it in an interview and the media ran with it...im not sure you know what a mantra is?
Yes i agree he mentioned it in an interview about Moses i think it was. Regardless of that it was then used by the club. We can only assume with Cleary's approval. It was a rally call, one to bring us together. The club even used it in its marketing.

mantra = group of words in Sanskrit believed by practitioners to have psychological and spiritual powers

Not quite sure what you are trying to say or imply? The evidence of the club using the saying is there for all to see.
From what I recall it was pretty much a throwaway line by Cleary. However, whatever he felt about the club running off with the bus analogy it was pretty clear he was trying to instil a set of values at this club. Values he's happy to selectively forget to chase an opportunity elsewhere. Not his fault the club went stupid with the bus line but it is quite clear there were underlying values he was alluding to with that throwaway line. Much like the be the player you want to play with etc.
Definitely was his mantra, as you can chose from a range of phrases that he utilised early on and they all meant the same thing.
