Dont forget the boss/ceo Matthews who has no interest in winning Sheffield Shield titles more interested in promoting & pushing womens & silly T20 cricket!
We have achieved nothing under her reign who also hired Voges & co.

Now how on earth a WA squad containing the following can finish no higher than 3rd or 4th each season is an absolute indictment on all involved down at the WACA-

M.Marsh
S.Marsh
C.Bancroft
J.Phillipe
A.Turner
D.Short
H.Cartwright
C.Green
M.Stoinis
A.Agar
J.Richardson
J.Behrendorff
A.Tye
J.Paris

(all have represented Australia in one form or another) plus other good state cricketers in-

S.Whiteman
J.Carder
J.Inglis
M.Kelly
S.Gannon
L.Morris
L.Guthrie
A.Hardie
D.Moody

If you can only coach/manage that squad into 3rd or 4th position I suggest you look for an alternative job!

keeping blokes...particularly your bowlers on the park would be a huge help I would have thought

I don't disagree with you, but exactly how often did we have our best team available. We get absolutely pillaged by the national team precisely because of the quality of our players. We should be doing better but it could be argued that the team we put on the park most often (with guys like Hardie, Morris, Carder making up the numbers) is probably a 3rd or 4th placed team.

NSW have lost at times the likes of- Warner, Smith, Starc, Cummins, Hazlewood & Lyon and others (Henriques, Patterson, Sams etc) over the years and still consistently make the final.
Meanwhile over here at the WACA.................it will be 23 years since our last Sheffield Shield title next year and that is despite producing many, many Australian reps in that time!

NSW has more depth than us, which is not surprising given their population. But in general I agree, we should have snagged at least a couple of Shields with the players we've had. Langer came close but just couldn't get over the line.

Its so bloody depressing, I wonder if the players are hurting. Losing to Tassie at home (convincingly), Beau Webster getting runs (again!)
Another wasted year. Heads MUST Roll
Yup gutted even today 307 is it enough to get into the final .....players consistently throwing away there wickets when set should of been a lot more

Heads will not roll they have just signed Voges for another 3 years !!!....thats the problem no accountability what so ever !!

No accountability whatsoever with any of them (Voges, Marsh, Mason etc) with Matthews in charge, she is more interested in womens cricket & to a lesser extent T20!

During Christina's reign WA has finished the Shield season 2nd twice and 3rd three times. WA has also won the ODD competition 3 times and are on the verge of playing off in a final for their 4th. The Scorcher's success is well publicised. Hardly doom and gloom.

22 years and still going no shield its a huge issue Christina and Co need to be held to account

Agree; the missing piece is a Shield win but that is the one that hurts the most.
