    100% !!!. How can any player gain any self confidence and improvement playing in a team that struggles to win a home game , Struggles win a close game , Struggles win more than 2 games in a row , Struggles to get away from the spoon .
    Player self development does not happen when a incompetent coach has his team team struggling to gain any momentum .

    The Barrett sympathisers dont have any sympathy for our club and how Trent tarnished our "fear of fortress" reputation .
    Trent turned our fortress into a whore house where opposition teams would come and screw us on our home ground .
    The Barret sympathisers are Mediocre Minded Barrett lovers and they can all follow him out the North shore door

      Silly attitude in my opinion, because everyone loses from time to time.
      I sure have, and I'm willing to bet you have too!

        Maybe so... but Trent Barrett will still go down as the worst performing coach in the clubs modern history... and he’s managed to pull that off with a squad that contains ten times the talent that old Peter Sharp had at his disposal... Anyone who is delusional enough to believe that our soon to be ex coach’s actions are anything other than those of a desperate man trying to save face by making up excuses with the hope of squeezing One final payout, needs to slap themselves about the face until such a time as they come to their senses. I ABSOLUTELY GUARANTEE you that Des or Tooves or Bozo would never use such spineless reasoning as an explanation for abject failure. People on here talk about what it means to be Manly... yet defend a sook who didn’t cut it as a coach, here or anywhere else. Barrett is a dud... we can see VERY CLEAR evidence of this fact on a multitude of levels. I’m tired of reading about him to be honest... he probably is a lovely country bloke and did his best, but he was terrible... and the club has progressed steadily downhill ever since he came here. The Penns have made moves to lead us back in the right direction and I’m very happy to see them doing that... but I dare say that it has fark all to do with Trent throwing his toys out of the cot...

          my take on this is simple. His cap space was taken up to wear the 6. He was an individualist, an enigma style player. We have DCE for decades who needs someone to play the game manager as he can not. Cherry contract and pkaying style dictates the player style and contracts offered to the no 6

          Regardless of what talent or potential he had, he didnt fit the squad so we are better off buying a winger or a workhorse. He was neither.

          No other NRL saw value in buying him either or thought his cost was too high. Surely that says something as well

          Loved his sidestep but hated how he used it to avoid tackling just quietly

            We scraped into the finals with a team containing DCE, Blake Green, Turbo, Walker, Marty, Siro, Jake, AFB, Api, and Some very good junior talent... I was prepared to give him another season to build on the result from 2017... and this season proved last season was a fluke. Our defence has regressed under Barrett.

                The fact TB can’t get a gig elsewhere says it all. Even the asprentice’s master (Gould) hasn’t taken him in. Carty will suffer the same fate.

                  I think Tom will be fine, we may even see him win silver/bronze at the next Olympics. ;)

                    "Profession"? You mean what you do for a living?

                    I have had many a loss in my working career, unsuccessful tenders, failed bids etc etc. but I am far from a "loser".

                    You must be perfect?

                      All that is good ..... but you have inadvertently proved the point I was making ...... so called 'facts" and stats qouted by some to justify their position are often completely meaningless without pages of explanatory notes and qualification .....

                      To answer your question ... no ... I don't think Baz coached DCE to a higher level ...... just as I don't believe he coached him to a lower level .....

                        I am sorry to hear about you
                        I have not been sacked or underachieved in my career
                        I am not perfect and certainly not incompetent or a loser

                          When Bozo played his 1st game .... nobody doubted his ability ... He had it ..
                          When 2V played his 1st game .... nobody doubted his ability .. He had it ..
                          When Turbo played his 1st game ... nobody doubted his ability ... He had it ...

                          The fact hat so many people have a different opinion of Tom Wright tells a story ......

                            Thats what I love about this joint. Our Silvertails forum . We all have our say .
                            The fact is Some players have taken more that just 5 games off the bench to cement a NRL career ;)

                              Interesting that you say he is a 6 and this to me is a big part of the mystery that is Tom Wright.
                              It seems that he didn’t have a specialist position.
                              I’m sure when Bozo was around all the talk was they thought he’d make a handy centre but if that was the long term plan they didn’t persist in his education in that position.

                              I’m not even sure if he knows his best position so 7’s rugby may be exactly where he fits.

                              For any number of reasons he’s floated between 1, 3, 4 and 6 - sure he can attack but that’s the part that comes naturally. If he’s not a great communicator, defender or team player then what can you do?
