We all agreed that to be the case based on Trent’s credentials and experience. I know he will be a wonderful fit for our club as we seek to continuously improve each and every year. I look forward to welcoming Trent and his family to our club”.

    • Exactly it's a Con Cover up by the chief con artist Brad Arthur 

  • I can't believe this statement:

    Parramatta Eels General Manager of Football Mark O’Neill said, “Brad identified Trent Barrett as someone who could add great value to our football program.

    Seriously, Brad Arthur identified🤣🤣 Mate Brad Arthur can't even identify his weekly selection of players or how to use his bench players.

    These blokes are all Con Artists in each other's pockets all after the 💰🤑. Brad Arthur has selected Barrett as he can control him and is not threatened by him and increase his chances of staying on until end of 2024. It's one huge CON JOB

    • 😂😂😂

      Continuous improvement each and every year.

      🤣🤣🤣

      • Frank to be fair, the statement said "we seek to continuously improve each and every year". Now you've interpreted that as they think they have improved each and every year, I think it can be a fair assumption to say they aren't entirely happy and are now "seeking" to improve each and every year.

        • Well they can seek it but truth is we haven't improved consistently since 2017.

          That year we finished on 36 points - 3rd on the ladder, the highest we have finished under BA.

          Its all been down hill since and still somehow the bald door still controls the coaching reins......we make all the changes you want except the most important and obvious one.

          • Frank, that is true, but don't forget that was the last year the eels had Semi.

    • So Barrett isn't an improvement on what we have as an attacking coach now.

       I'm confused it just seems as though if it's not a forum favourite or Bennett Bellamy or Robbo BAs an idiot.

      I mean what is it hey let's hire some deadbeat like Flanagan which no club in the nrl is touching.

      • Maybe Barrett might be but look who he's working with and it depends how much actual say Barrett has. It's all a smoke screen for Super Dud

        • How is it a smoke screen his roles clear.

          Hes going to be in charge of the attack what smoke screen are you referring too.
