Would you keep the coach, DF?

6 wins from 33 games? His position is untenable. Maybe it's not his fault, but you get judged by results. 

Meanwhile, congrats to Baxter Philipon his league debut. I'm not convinced he's ready just yet - only weighs 61kg - but good luck to him, and here's hoping he's a long term player for us.

Has Moss ever had a fit squad? We’re a thin squad, thinner than a piece of A4 paper. I don’t think we’ve given him a proper chance.

Would like to see him improve us, though. I think a coach can hang his hat on improving young players, even if the wins don’t come. Perhaps he’s done that with one or two, and perhaps he’s not had the young talent. Quarter Maine is one that comes to mind, and perhaps Hayward is perhaps another. But others have gone backwards. McPartland for example. 

I do think a board shake up is needed. And, there needs to be something done about our recruiting. Shambolic the last two seasons.

I'd say quite a few players have gone backwards, or at least failed to improve. Regan Clarke has been ok, but I expected him to take a step towards becoming an elite mid. Avery hasn't been as good as last year. Gibba, for whatever reason, is out of favour. I'd say the only players that have improved are Cary and Stubbs. Last year, after we beat WP, we were 4-3. Since that time, we have won 2 of 26 games, by 2p and 1p. We get smashed in disposals every week, which suggests we are unwilling to run. That has to be in part a coaching issue. Opinions differ, and if people think Moss should be given a chance to work with hopefully a fitter and better squad, so be it. But for me it would entrench our acceptance of mediocrity if we extended a coach with the record Moss has.

I agree Ted. Must have a complete new start right through the club on and off field.
Most of all we need a brand new culture. We have drifted far too long with this acceptance of mediocracy
Act now or die.

I note that Peter German has indicated an interest in returning to WA.
Is that the sort of revolution PFC needs?

DF, I think German would improve any team he takes on, but by your own words, the cattle aint there. Germo is super demanding, a strict disciplinarian and a fittness fanatic, he along with Richard Maloney turned Subi's on field culture into a winning culture but we did have a much better list to start with. You talk about the slower than expected improvement by some of your youngsters, but its hard to improve when, as a young inexperienced player, you are one of the better players on the list, expected to carry the team. Subi recruited a number of borderline league players from other clubs over the last 10 years who were struggling for a game but when they play in a team as loaded with quality as Subi, they get a chance to blossom without carrying that pressure to lead. Sokol is a classic example, never given an opportunity at Souths but has developed into one of the best forwards in the comp. Someone with Germo's profile and CV should be able to attract some quality players.
