Only a couple on here are saying sack the coach. Very small minority.Faaaaark me there is a lot of spoilt supporters among us bunch. I was upset as much as everyone else about not only yesterday's game but also against the saints. I believe our leaders need to have a hard look at themselves on what they are producing away from home.
But to say Simmo needs to be sacked. For crying out loud!!!!!!!!!
I think the management of the club need.to.give Simmo the support he needs in the right assistant coaches. Having Hickmott as the midfield coach to me is the wrong move.
Does Simmo need to change a few things? Yes he does.
Every successful Senior coach has gone through trials and tribulations.
Look at Clarko, Thompson and Hardwick over the years.
Winning games of footy and a flag is hard and i don't think we appreciate this as much as we should.
I think you are under selling exactly how much power the senior coach has at a football club. He is King, numero uno.
He decides the game plan, he creates it. He empowers his assistant coaches to implement it.
He would also have the final tick off on any of his assistants. If Simmo didn’t want them or think they can’t do what he wants they would not be employed.
Same with recruiting, there is no way in hell any player is recruited to the club without the tick of approval from the head coach.
This is why they earn huge money, the responsibility is enormous and lies with the head coach.
