What does everyone think of Brad Arthur? Personally, I think he is the James Hasson of coaching. I'm sure that most of you would agree so you can imagine my horror when I read today that we were unsuccessful in poaching him as head coach from Parramatta. Had we been successful, I reckon the club would have looked to have taken him on immediately and we'd probably be in a worse position on the ladder than we currently are. Which means that Trent Barrett is Plan B, after an atrocious Plan A. I hope Bozo has struck gold here because if Barrett mimics his success as a NSW selector then we are royally farked. You'd also have to be naive to think that the heartache is over. A **** storm broke out over the handling of Glenn Stewart's contract. His standing in Manly's history has nothing on Toovey's. Now imagine the fallout that will unfold from the even worse treatment of one of Manly's finest men, after he had amassed a very good record. The Penn clan may own the club and may have their man as head coach now, but they are now a bigger target than they were before. They better have a solid plan to win titles, otherwise their standings as some of the most despised men in this club's proud history will intensify.
