Are we being too harsh on Barrett?

    After the Parramatta loss, we want his head on a platter, yet:

    * Parra are clearly a better side, would be equal with the Broncos, and ahead of the Titans, if the hadn't loss their points.
    * They are still ahead of our for/against even after being readjusted.
    * Parra have beaton us the last 5 straight.
    * They were at Pirtek.
    * Lyon, Parcell, and Myles were expected to play, but didn't eventuate.
    * Ferris drops 3 balls cold, would not do that in his whole career. Turbo drops 2.

    We lose by 1 point, over a 50/50 call that always goes against us, after winning 4 games straight, and we say:

    "Off with his head!"

    Consider what Barrett has coped with:

    * First season coach.
    * Horrendous run of injuries.
    * Off field dramas and match fixing.

    All this, and we are still a bolters chance of making the 8, albeit unlikely now.

    Sure he plays Walker out of position, but I remember everyone calling for Williames jatz crackers, and now we realise the blokes not too shabby!

    I say, give Barrett a break, I can see him being a star of the future... Rant over.

    I don't - I think the playing group let him. Defensively, we fought hard. Barrett couldn't help the bad refereeing decisions, the poor ball control, and the terribly low energy levels of his players.

    Something was very amiss, and I'm betting (pardon the pun) we may hear something about this game down the track.

    We shouldn't be above the bottom 4 ATM but we are and it's a credit to baz, he has kept this group together. He has made great moves towards the future (Jake Skipper, AFB, Parker, Knight all debuting). He IMO has done really well but he cops to much for some of his failed experiments. Walker to 5/8 been forced upon him because Lyon didn't want to play 5/8 early on and our recruitment was poor in not getting a 6. We've got green now which is great. And also the injuries! So many!!!

    Snake (basically all season out with injury)
    Matai (Season)
    Lawrence (Season)
    Hodges (Season)
    DCE (missed a lot of games)

    And all the other injuries he has done so well.

    Fact is Neil Henry went through similar with a less quality roster and the Titans were rated wooden spoon favourites at the start of the season but Henry overcame all this adversity and his team is above ours 7th with a plus 17 . Great coaches overcome adversity

    **** Barrett

    He's had the same sort of year that Toovey did last year with a much better squad and props other than Clarice

    He should be fired after hiring an obsolete old **** and replaced with a dumb rookie with bad hair, his support should also be replaced with the worst available replacements known to man

    I will give him one year with benefit of the doubt & some teething issues.
    Next year he is no longer a rookie coach ,so won't be as forgiving if he continues making rookie mistakes.

    Neil Henry hasn't had to play with a different team basically every week. Neil Henry doesn't have 1 playmaker on his roster like we do.

    Personally, I don't envy the Eels their coach. Nor their position on the ladder, their laughable ineptitude and gross cheating, their history of interminable failure...nothing.
    But that's just me!

    Ah, now he's a great coach! After 10 years, and 3 clubs...

    His number one half back has been out since the beginning of the season and is out for the whole season
    You obviously are talking through rose garden Barrett eyes
    You can colour Barrett up as much as you like :)
    Titans: Kane Elgey (ACL, season), Matt Srama (knee, season), Daniel Mortimer (hamstring, indefinite), John Olive (factured collarbone, Round 23), David Shillington (pec, Round 23), Nathan Davis (broken leg, season), Will Zillman (foot, Round 23), Karl Lawton (broken leg, season), Nathan Friend (hamstring, Round 24)

    No It is a results driven business and he should be given the same consideration as toovey was last year

    Join the unemployment queue Barrett and hire someone who can coach otherwise we sill start treating missing out on the semis each year as acceptable

    If we get Lyon, Parcell, and Myles back next week, Walker back to Centre, we may just beat the Dogs, Storm, Raiders, and Panthers, make the semis, and Yeah Nah will be a Supercoach! Let's all get behind this guy, he wear's our colours, and shows his passion for the Mighty Eagles.

    That had half a season being massively over the cap so you kinda have to that into account. Since they got under the cap they've lost more than won.

    Barrett has been making stupid decisions week in and week out.
    Parra was just another example, notice how BA swapped Gutho and Taka in the second half.
