Go the Knights

Published

Comments

I understand what you mean but Wayne Bennett (alongside Don Furner) was co-coach of Canberra in 1987, in which they fell 18-8 against Manly in the grand final. Sometimes the coaches with the right mindset and the right team will make the difference. Newcastle in 2019 had a top four lineup but not the mindset. Nathan Brown wasn’t a bad coach but he was aiming to be everyone’s friend. That’s not a bad thing but your boss is your boss before being your friend. Coaches like Michael Hagan in 2001 and Trent Robinson had the squad that could get the job done. Granted, Andrew Johns pretty much coached Newcastle in 2001.

The Newcastle talking points following the big gamble of Adam O'Brien

Nathan Brown had done both with imports and juniors. At one stage, Fitzgibbon, King, Barnett and the Saifiti twins were rookies. Adam O’Brien will be blooding them up well.

The one to lead the Knights

Point taken but I can see Klem becoming an 80 minute man. However, even though I think he’s the pick for the job, if Pearce remains as such, so be it.

To me Phil Lynott carried the band till his death. All that aside, Pearce and Ponga really can show what they can do when they click. They just need a constant five-eighth and hooker.

I’ve seen American Psycho too. Do you like Huey Lewis and the News?

My parents never introduced me to old school music. I learned for myself. My favourite band is Genesis and I’m the only Genesis fan in my family.

Also Doc envisioned the flux capacitor when he fell from the toilet and hit his head by having a vision. Marty reminded him.

Thank you Chris and I hope there’s no hard feelings. I won’t deny King Crimson have been successful but I can’t get into their music.

It wasn’t exactly the end of Thin Lizzy as they still kept going but didn’t have much success, I am not a King Crimson fan and I tried but couldn’t click.

I always get it mixed up. However, the club was looking for coaches behind his back. That’s how I get it mixed.

We hit our lowest already and have pretty much just risen this year. We showed what we are capable of when we got the right mindset but sadly couldn’t maintain it.

It’s time for the Knights and their supporters to move on

1. He re-created the link between the players and community.
2. 50/50. His contract meant he could be sacked any time but how he was sacked was badly handled
3. He was brilliant as recruitments. He got us players like Mitchell Pearce, Kalyn Ponga and David Klemmer.

Thank you sir. Pretty great question. With Brailey on board, I kinda feel for Watson as he owned the number 9. However, he does have a good running game in the halves. Kurt Mann should be dropped to reserves. Mason Lino is a top goal kicker but a turnstile in defence.

The numbers that prove the Knights' improvement

Next year Knights? Well sir you may be bagging my team but that’s funny.

The numbers that prove the Knights' improvement

Don’t apologise. I don’t agree with your opinion but I still respect it. I’m not offended.

The numbers that prove the Knights' improvement

I thank you sir for the compliments but in due time, it will happen.

Newcastle will make their home ground a fortress again

Okay, this is unfortunate. It’s meant to say x amount of wins in 12 games not 12 losses. Whoops!

Newcastle will make their home ground a fortress again

I love both eras of Genesis (I didn’t mind Ray Wilson). The old school prog Genesis did was eccentric but I was comparing their success to their albums success. Firth of Fifth will forever be the best song they ever did even though Land of Confusion is my favourite.

Adam O'Brien can mark the beginning of a new era at the Knights

How thoughtful. Should I buy him flowers or chocolates?

What can Newcastle fans expect from Adam O’Brien?

Now they fixed it.

Where did it all go wrong for Newcastle?

Don’t mind it says 42 point loss to the Cowboys, I actually got it mixed up first, forgot to fully complete the swap and well that says it all.

Where did it all go wrong for Newcastle?

I have done that a few times believe it or not sir.

Seven steps to save the NRL

I can take criticism big time and it actually has helped me. Sadly, not everyone will harden the f#ck up sir.

Should NRL players have social media?

You figured it all out. I’ll pay for the parade in your honour. I’ll try to get Ozzy Osbourne to perform. I don’t think I’ll be able to pay him much but I suppose finding a whole bunch of bars for him to bite their heads off should convince him.

The key is patience

I see you chose heavy metal even Queen done a heavy metal song sir. Anyways for my heavy metal dream band;
