Yes Parra may have some leadership issues happening, I don't think the coach has changed and I don't think the captain has changed......a few people on here all of a sudden decided that their "shit" leadership is the root cause of our inconsistency, I'm not convinced of this from a perspective that a change of leadership from within the team is the answer, I believe the leadership we are now lacking is a CEO with football credibility..... put the coaching tenure aside at this stage.
Jim Saratinos on face value does not deserve to be criticised as he is probably as good a CEO you are going to get in a public forum and a perfect answer to a club like Parra in the circumstances he has come in.i.e weak leadership from an administration perspective.
We have now evolved to a new level that requires some leadership over O'Neill, BA and even the players to provide that confidence that is not there ......none of those guys individually have made errors as such, just now lack a direction from an authority.....maybe a Tim Sheens role for Wests (not us) a Bennett role (non coaching) Gould (not coaching) Bellamey (non coaching) people that are essentially above roles ......CEO's that do that now are obviously Politis, Trip or Ponnisi, (Ken Arthurson , Moore, even Fitgerald in the past) the super coaches Bennett and Ballamey do it as both jobs essentially,because they are autocrats.....the styles are different but fundamentaly the same. O'Neill and BA have had an opportunity to evolve in this direction but at this stage are not at that level....and in BA's case will probably never be.
I have not got an answer just an observation of what we may need.
I'm not calling for Jim Saratinos to resign, he has obvious strengths, but If I was Jim Saratinos I would be looking for that person that can put a different and credible overview that is much harder to discredit than our current evolution.
How it would actually work is something that may come out of a discussion.
