    This should probably go in the lol mega thread but I thought it DEServed its own thread for a while.

    Over on the kennel they are already starting to turn on des it would seem.http://www.thekennel.net.au/forum/showthread.php?t=102918

    here are some good quotes
    There's another 2 years to run on Des' contract. If we're not a force by then with a comp win under our belt we should look elsewhere.

    If Hasler is agood coach why

    Haven't we had speed off the line defence
    Haave we had no go forward and aggression
    Have we had no variation in attack
    Have we had no attack options in the oppositions 10-15 metre area
    Have we had a flat non attack backline for 90% of the season
    Have we put up with Tony (Tubby-Rex) Williams non achievements all season
    Have we put up with the dreadful Inu-Perrett right side defence all season


    Desmond is a protected species on here tbh, you get thumbed down or ridiculed for asking genuine questions of him.

    Personally I love the bloke but this year has made me ask a lot of questions.

    The honeymoon is over as even the dumbest of dogs fans come to realise this year is gone for them and next year aint going to be much better.

    Not sure the Kennel (or this place) is an accurate reflection of fan sentiment

    Yeh and he doesn't get the media plaudits this year either. At the end of last year it was really Bellamy, Bennett and Des rated as the 3 best coaches in the league.....not much talk this year.

    Just terrible.... (cry fake tears)

    I dont know.
    But i think it was niccipops or misskate who mentioned an observation in another thread, that he seemed to no longer have the passion he once went about his coaching with. That spark and little bit of aggro he had when coaching the Sea Eagles went the moment he started coaching another team. That definitely seems obvious

    They have had to deal with barba's alleged assault and so many injuries and are turning on the coach. What a bunch of wankers the dogs supporters are. Good times, good times.

    I totally agree Mark. I had the utmost respect for him but that vanished - not for going to the Dogs but for leaving with one year to run on his contract, taking many of the Manly support staff, trying to take some of our players and putting the club through hell when we should have been basking in the glory of the 2011 GF win.
    I'm glad he took She-Rex, though. It serves him right.

    but stop! isn't he the current coach of the year. something he never achieved with us funnily, even though he got us to the finals year after year and won 2 gfs. just confirms that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence, especially when you have to constantly step in dog poo

    Here is a theory . Des has lost some heart...Working with greenturd and being part of the 'coverup' must have played on his mind each day for months in the long drive out west.

    Their season started terribly for them.

    Maybe they will replace him with Ricky Stuart?

    Des is a great coach and motivator , bit of second year syndrome over Belmore way , plus the Barba thing has hurt the club before round 1 , me thinks they will go out pretty early this year .

    Canterbury bought Des wanting and more importantly expecting a premiership. As soon as I heard that Des was deflecting to Belmore I knew the results he would have to achieve would have to be instant for the fans to really embrace him.

    This is not Manly where Des played and had a history with the club. Des and Canterbury have nothing in common.

    There was an article written in Sportal a few weeks after Des signed with the Dogs and it predicted exactly what has happened - they wouldn't really accept Des (without an instant premiership) and Des would not really fit in (no history with the Dogs).

    Oh well never mind not our problem.

    Very true, it would be the same - for example - if we bought Bellamy. We would expect results, and quick, cause he got them with another club.

    Des is merely the 'fixer'. Well, two seasons down (almost), and two to go. A Toovey premiership in this time will be ever soooo sweet.

    I hate the guy after the way he left but they seem very quick to forget he got them from dog **** to the GF last year and the Semi's again this year.

    I think they go ok for the roster they have, ours is far far better as is the other top 4 sides.

    I know a lot of people were expecting the Dogs to win the Premiership this year (they still may), but last year Des sprung a bit of a rabbit out of the hat with the forward ball playing that happened last year. It really seemed to surprise a lot of teams, and Barba was playing out of his skin (not unlike Hayne in 09). But teams are awake to this style and Barba has obviously had other issues to deal with.

    Des made big mistake. I honestly feel for him. I have no anger at all for the man. But I think he may harm his legacy by going to the dogs, I hope he doesn't get sacked from there.
