I'll be shocked if they don't get the spoon.
Getting pumped by the goons.

I feel bad for Trent Barrett. Look at that squad. Then look at how the bigger name acquisitions are crapping the bed like Cotric. He was an elite winger at Canberra. Fast, explosive, line-breaking, rep quality....

He just looks un-enthused, lazy, overweight & slow now.

The Kennel would be working in overdrive right now.

I don't have any sympathy for Baz. The Bulldogs - man for man - have a side that should be doing much better than they are. They lack coordination, structure and game plan and those things come back to the coach. Give this same team to Bellamy and they'd be in the finals.

Grab some popcorn, some tea or a glass of red for some delightful reading brought to you by the kennel...

"Trent is a good looking bloke who says all the right things.....probably had no problems getting laid.....but jury is well and truly out about Trent as an NRL head coach."

I prefer this quote from the kennel

Barrett who might I add has failed elsewhere as a head coach, and the guy couldn't coach a sh!t out of his ass

Update on the super coach for this week.. this guy is more entertaining than Mr Bean..
As predicted last week he would start throwing his players under the bus.. his “marquee” signing that he brought to the club Flanagan was first in line today
POOR,Poor ,Poor was the way Mr Zoolander tried to emphasise that it’s the players that are at fault.. he even used Covid as an excuse..
Then you get the so called experts on Fox saying “ if any coach could get a half to play well it’s Barrett, look what he did at Penrith with Cleary and Luai and at Manly” WTF.. they even called him a great attacking coach yet the dogs can’t score points.. another week and more egg on his face.. hilarious

Bulldogs need an attack coach along with a defensive one.

Ponga should be their main recruitment goal.

Flanagan is his new Jackson Hastings. What is it with this bloke and halves who've been booted by the Roosters?

Haha, the jury’s not out at all. The jury made its decision when Manly almost got the spoon.

This season has not gone as Barrett would have hoped, with the Bulldogs’ -188 points differential their worst after nine games since their first-ever season in 1935, proving the problem goes much deeper than Flanagan.

Wow! Another all-time record for the attack coach. He's a smart boy is Baz - imagine what the points differential would be without the World Cup-winning All Black coaching assistance.

Barrett tried to put his imprint on the Sea Eagles by getting rid of Manly people. He claimed that experience taught him valuable lessons. Then he gets the Dogs gig and immediately starts sacking authentic Canterbury people. Topping it all off - he goes and hires the bearded one.

Is he the dumbest coach on the planet? Or is it ego? Probably both.

He hasn't got the inadequate facilities, and no list manager excuses to fall back on either. Just an abysmal record.

His career is hanging by two threads right now - Burton and JAC.

This quote just un-masked T-baz

"Trent's cookie cutter approach to the team has meant we're seeing another season of ****ing garbage, awful job from him. The focus always needed to be on the basics and 1%ers but instead he tried to copy the Panthers and turn Flanagan into Cleary 2.0. We don't have an established, 1, 6, 7 or 9...squad combinations are non existent, etc...yet he thought we could play like the Panthers? LOL. Flanagan has always going to be under pressure(because he's **** and our forward pack sucks) but Baz really went an exposed him even more by making him the focal point of our attack."

Did anyone see Kyle Flanagan brought to tears when he fronted the media today to talk about being hooked by Supercoach Barrett, who has subsequently dropped him from the team? The Bulldogs are an absolute basket case and Barret is once again showing a propensity to blame anyone and everyone but himself for the failings of the team he's supposed to be in charge of.

Des is often faulted here for his unwavering loyalty to his players (and sometimes for good reason), but maybe it's a good thing he'd never hang a player out to dry like that. Who would you rather play for?

Yes was more sad that he hadn't been told he was dropped for this weekend and still thought he was playing... strong man management from Baz once again!

That Dogs team is by far and away the worst this comp has seen in quite sone time. Right now it’s like Penrith then daylight at one end and Dogs then daylight for the spoon! I actually can’t see Canterbury beating anyone else this year. Imagine being a sharks fan if the dogs lose all the rest of their games. I’d actually quite like to see that. Lol
