Why on earth would anyone want to promote GM to DOR, he has just presided over the worst season in the clubs history? Yes he was a brilliant player but brilliant players don't always make great coaches, he was thrown in at the deep-end and shouldn't have been given the job permanently.kpj tiger wrote: ↑Mon Apr 29, 2019 1:57 pmTo my mind that is the best way forwards, I'm a self confessed "happy clapper" but I'm struggling to see any of the innovation or spark I thought GM might have brought to the coaching group. That said I think having read what some of the incoming players have said and what the current crop of players are saying I think GM has a vision of where and how he wants the club to be and I think he should be given more time to move towards it in a DOR role with somebody coming in as HC (not Mike Ford).
As for the other coaches I'm not a fan of calling for people to be sacked but I feel like its fair to say Blake & Bakewell haven't exactly had the impact we wanted, Boris must be kept at all costs and I think Allen and Deacon have the potential to become quality coaches.
The only other viable option IMO is a complete clearout and starting fresh with a new coaching team and DOR (Perfect opportunity to give Ben Ryan a go) but I can't see that happening at all, especially before next season.
I don't understand how so many posts on here are anti Mike Ford who has the experience of taking a team to the playoff final and yet seem to support GM who has overseen this seasons disaster.
