Just another day in paradise
I think Kearney is killing the club.
Apart from a few draws the ISP team is dominating weekly. Surely surely.. He has the skill as a first grade coach to blood or blend in a couple or some of those players that are demanding a higher level of football. Create depth in positions, competition for spots etc. he's doing the opposite and for a new (ish) coach he is showing an outdated 'process' of allowing players to play themselves back into form in the top grade.
Kearney quite obviously hasn't the ability to drop poor performers, doesn't have the skill required (which is a key one he was hired to do) and that is put the best team out every week and improve them.
Sure he's not missing the tackles or taking the poor 5th tackle options, but he's allowing this by continually picking the same players who are doing the same things and ignorantly ignoring other options. That's the Kearney id hoped wouldn't turn up to the warriors.
We cant add a poll to a player discussion thread thats attached to a player profile so I'll add one here. Theres a clear shift in sentiments towards Mooks now so a new thread is probably timely.
according to the media barrett was one of those first coaches gone. two rebuilds in his time and they seem to have gotten right. ill reserve judgment till next year when the team he wants is on the field and see if he does get rid of some of the rot of the players currently at the clubI went with 'undecided', mainly because he's still only half a season into the job. It took Trent Barrett a whole season and a bit to get his side playing well; as is usually the case when a new coach takes over. I'd be willing to give Kearney the same amount of time.
I hope he works things out too. Can you imagine what would happen if we had to get rid of ANOTHER coach? More rebuilding, more mistakes, more waiting things out because Coach X doesn't have his roster... I dunno about you guys but I'd be shattered.
The club cannot keep on sacking the coach.
The issue i have SK should not have been appointed in the first place. I'm sure there was other options available.
As stated by a number of people the club is rotten to the core. It needs a big broom to sweep through the place at the seasons end.
All those players involved in the Pill drama need moving on along with Thompson, Hoffman plus others.
Like Newcastle it may be painful for a season or two but things cannot get any worse then the trash which has been served up for the last 5 years.
I'll be honest I even question JDs ability to get the job done.
Let's face it the period he has been at the club results and attendances have got worse.
I'm sure even Watson will not tolerate this for much alonger, especially if he needs to start Dillinger into his own pocket.
