What about the Paramatta Eels in 2006 or 2007, they were useless under Brian Smith for a couple of seasons prior to his mid season dumping, then he got replaced with his assistant Jason Taylor - then all of a sudden they started winning games and got into the finals. New team selections for example Jarrod Hayne, Smith didnt want to pick the young kid on the wing, then as soon as Taylor became coach he picked him for every game and was a revelation, try scoring freak in his first year, I guess all thanks to a new coach.
The Warriors could do with a change, there might be some improvement from last year, but not progressing fast enough, its time for a change, it will be good for the players and the club in general. A fresh new start is whats needed, the players arent responding and they look stale and average, a new coach I feel will change that, it will benifit the young guys in the team, they will grow and develope more under a new coach with fresh ideas, new environment, new tactics, it will be a good change for the exprience guys too who will find a new lease of life.
Theres good arguments for and against the dumping of Ivan, I feel if we stick with Ivan we will be heading in the same direction as we are now, average results. This club can do a lot better than that.
How much of a direction change do you think adding the likes of Mannering, Vatuvei, Lillyman, Price, Seymour etc would be when we have a fully fit squad? Not enough?
