Just read Klemmer has publicly said will leave dogs if helps with their salary cap saga and Corey Oates has publicly declared his a second rower playing on the wing. Why aren’t we targeting these 2…Continue
It’s sad to say it but Arthur’s tenure has expired with this playing group they aren’t responding like previous years. Time to move on and appoint a new coach and rebuild this roster properly and…Continue
"Broken down has been? Because Fitler didn't pick him for the Blues? From all reports he's the top metre-eater in the comp & right up there for post-contact metres too. Perfect replacement for Semi. We're not paying 500k for…"
"Ed, How do you know who we are or who we are no targeting or negotiating with?
The club has a very sensible policy around recruitment. We do not discuss it in the public arena!
IMO it is a very good policy which has not prevented us from…"
"French has talent, although his workrate is terrible compared to that of George Jennings and Gutherson (the other 2 members of our current back three). If French isn't playing fullback and he's not the best fullback at our club, there may…"
"Agree, no offence to anybody but people talking him up for next year are absolutely dreaming, hes nowhere ready, especially not in the position we are in.
I swear some eels fans must want the spoon next year, people were even saying lets throw…"
"The thing about plans is sometimes they changed, at the end of the day form will dictate whether Norman stays at the club and whether or not he is in the long term fans, he's coping criticism at the moment for his poor form and leadership,…"
"ok mate i see that; Moses would have about 90-100 nrl games under his belt; i guess we do not know who is in the long term plans or not ( Norman / Smith etc.).
I would rather invest in a young guy (similar to Penrith) than kep paying huge $$$ for a…"
"Austin has played a little 9, not enough to be a solid starting hooker but definitely enough to get away with playing a moderate amount of minutes there, Austin can play anywhere he is the perfect utility in my opinion, Will Smith wouldn't be…"
"Salmon whilst extremely talented is very young, would be pretty tough to throw him in the deep end for 2019, especially considering he would be partnering Moses whom isn't that experienced himself. Either Norman or Austin will be the 6 for next…"

Do/have you play footy (If so for who, when, position, etc)?
What changes would you make if you were Eels coach
Drop the under performing players who are just taking their pay packet and dont give a shit about the club. I would work hard on defence and communication. Put some sand pits in get the players tackle each other until they perfected it. Wayne Bennett did it at Broncos with small men like Kev Walters.
What changes would you make if you were Eels CEO?
Sack Kearney and tell Glen Duncan not to interfere with the football department. I would sign Ricky Stuart he might attract talent to the club. Looking at the origin camp all the players have great respect for him. I reckon he would get the best out of Hayne and Sandow being former half back. I would embrace the former greats like kenny, sterling invite them for mentoring role with the play makers. Great see Ray Price was asked its about time.
