Well for one I was pleased with King's effort today!
Yes decent effort but why do we keep finding him to give the ball to inside their 20 ?
If I hear either the coach or a player say that we need time or the fans need to stick solid I may go on a killing spree.
Is the gap between our worst and best getting bigger or smaller ?
I won’t be, until we begin to play competitively. I don’t care if we win or lose, as long as we have a decent go, and we haven’t been. I hope Wests are inundated with requests for membership refunds, just to signal to them that the ever-patient fans are tired of this ****-poor team and its excuses.
I am so glad I didn't waste my time and money taking the kids down to that. So embarrassing
I was saying this to my wife this morning. Both my teams **** so bad right now and each year I hope at least one of them can turn things around. Na
Great win for Spurs in CL though! Epic!!!! I hope City win league and Spurs CL
And I missed the Knights glory years! Moved here in 2003 and started following them in 2005. Pretty much nothing but suffering for me
We don’t have a ‘best’ so technically yes. We’re very consistent, consistently sh*t but consistent none the less.
That will do me. Crap team, crap coach. The teams problem is they have the ability but lack direction and the desire to work hard for a win. The coach’s problem is that this level is beyond him. I reserved my judgement on Brown to this point but it is clear that he does not have the tools or the knowledge to coach at this level. I miss the days when the knights teams of old, may not have had the ability, but you knew that when they came off the field, win, lose of draw, they gave 110%. I was proud of those teams, not proud at all at this present bunch of pretenders. We need a coach who can install pride again in the jumper and that will not be afraid to tear strips off players that don’t perform. If the presents team were in exactly the same position as they are now, but the fans new that they were giving everything they had to win, I’m certain fans would still be right behind them and supporting them like teams of old. I just can’t support this team anymore when It is clearly obvious that they are not putting in anywhere near 100%.
outmuscled by a patched-up Titans pack and outsmarted by a Knights reject...my prediction of the Knights finishing 10th may have been wildly optimistic...
We were terrible first half, refs really screwed us over in the middle of the second half. Surely this confirms that Watson isn't a 6, our spine has to look 1. Pong 6. 7. Pearce 9. Levi 14. Watson
Really happy with Ponga today though, I thought he was a bit hot and cold so far this season, but he was always looking for the ball today which is good to see.
Watson only credited with 3 errors. I suppose the two passes where he hit guys in the ear were put down as errors by them.
I can’t dislike Watson because he tries his arse off. Whenever he gets the ball something is gonna happen either good or bad.
Ca't disagree with you there Mozza, for all his errors, he showed more passion then anyone else today.
Brennan deciding to keep using Roberts as the main playmaker instead of Taylor was good coaching. We would have had plans to keep Taylor under control, but he hardly saw the ball.
Next week the team they play will probably have all their best defenders on Roberts, and Taylor will be the main guy.
I think Watson should play 9. His speed around the ruck would be good and maybe he can give clean service to the halves
Mann or Lino to 6
Jeez if sione ran 35m like Barnett did today everyone would be calling for his head.
Barnett bench prop or reserve grade for mine, Glasby and Fitz not far behind him
Good coaching lol, something we dont benefit from.
Question. At what point was it decided Lino was going to be dropped? We had the commentators saying Lino was dropped but here he is on screen warming up with the 6 on his back.
Literally appeared to be a last minute hook. He was fit, seemed Brown went all week with a plan then 5 minutes before kickoff went yeah nah.
I cant recall seeing a player dressed in a starting jersey dropped from the squad entirely during the warmup.
Brown let off easy in the presser.
He seems worried about the final touches, the 1%ers but the problem is the 99%ers. Line speed no.1 for me and competing every play and defending errors after that.
