Up to this week if the season had started when Agar got the job we would be 5th so that for mine shows improvement.


I don’t put much weight in this kind of analysis, you need to compare over full seasons, otherwise the fixtures missing come into play.

IMO, we were crap before he took the reins, and we still are now. I just don’t see that changing next season with him in charge, so it’s a year wasted.
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

Sums it up perfectly.

He's not had a full season just over half so that's all you can judge on.I think he's done well considering well considering how poor the squad is.

Moreover he's not had a pre-season. It would be insane to judge him solely on what's happened after he picked up Furner's sh*tstorm.

I genuinely don’t know this so it’s not a leading question but what was our points difference when Furner left to where it is now?

In my opinion there’s no way we would have defended 7 sets on our line like in Friday without conceding during Furners reign

I think the team has shown improvement since agar came in. I also think that improvement would continue somewhat into next season where we could move into a playoff place.

However, it's a 'safe' option. I don't think it's showing the ambition that a club with the resources that we have should be showing. Yes, the squad has done challenges, bit a good coach sound still be able to get the best out of them

Well yes then who? Watson and Ward have done great jobs this year, but does that really translate to Leeds?

The Aussies are either assistants with no head experience, already well settled, or have some kind of cloud over them.

Powell ruled himself out and I feel he was the main hope at one stage.

Two ex Aussie assistants are the top 2 in superleague at the min. If we put friendship aside and had a look, theres plenty out there. Watson, best young british coach at the min, team plays some lovely stuff...Would that translate to leeds, we wont find out now...Will Agars history of failure translate to success at Leeds?? Lets hope so

The only two assistants I’d be interested in are Demetriou and Ryles.

Who’s to say we haven’t sounded out options like this?

It’s no guarantee that an NRL assistant will work either. Furner just happened.

If people can’t see some improvement under Agar it’s because they don’t want to. Are there better coaches out there? Yes. Can we get them to the club now? Maybe not.

We are highly unlikely to bridge the gap between us and top next season are we? We’re looking for improvement and foundations. The squad probably needs another season at least to reshape, given the huge turnover of staff required since KS inherited the mess.

Gonna take this long or that long to get a decent team together 2021, 2021, rebuild, rebuild...While Salfords team of castoffs cruise into the playoffs, playing some lovely stuff.

Yeah, Ian Watson just arrived and it's been an overnight transformation.
Oh, hang on...
