I can see Ryan Carr having a more significant role at Leeds going forward overseeing the coaching structure and junior player development under Agar.

I’d like us to continue with him or get James Ford involved somehow. Lowes was never going to take a step again to head coach and we missed another opportunity there to provide development pathways for our own coaches. Agar being at the helm gives a perfect opportunity to groom someone through the ranks - although granted that can get terribly political in practice.

The best performances of the season in my opinion was Saints away in week 4, Salford away in week 3 and the 2 wins versus Cas. Furner was coach in 3 of those.

But weve got to move on now.


Saints away we we were in a clear winning position and threw it away with terrible defence, Cas at home was very similar we were well in command but simply had no backbone and very lucky to win because of McShanes brain fart and a very scratchy drop goal.

There were some absolutely dreadful performances under Furner, Hull away, Wakefield at home spring to mind but the amount of times we just crumbled even when in the lead was shocking.

Salford was a very good performance ill give you that.

Totally agree with the second paragraph , not only would I say its not the terrible option but I think its the correct option

Same.

This whole thing does make me wonder about timing, call me a cynic. Things now working out with Furner early on, oops moment, Agar is brought across in some non-threatening role and then ends up replacing Furner after SL status secured and legal settlement reached with the former coach. Reading too much into it, or always the plan...?

Furner he us looking slick in attack (unsurprisingly) but we were awful in D. I’m not saying all that was his fault as much was down to our dysfunctional right edge, two of which have now left the club and the third crocked knee.

I think Furner struggled carrying the can without the remit to fix/change the playing roster.

Oh I agree we have to move on. We just have to live with it. It will prove yet another Hetherington error, but he will continue to be excused. I suspect another coach will be incoming by July 2020, but Hetherington has made this really hard for himself by putting family up for the dunking up to then.

I just hope Carr is in full time, and the suggestion above on Ford, would certainly soften this decision.

That again would be a backwards step for the club . We already have ex players (Gotchas job for the boys quote on an earlier post)with zero coaching experience trying to develop our next crop which for me standing on the side line watching games all this year and last clearly hasn’t worked ? Why would we put an inexperienced 33 year old in charge of our whole development structure ? The reason agar got the development gig in the first place according to GH was due to his vast knowledge of the game that he could pass on to the existing coaches within the system!
On a side note everyone in the game knows that agar is not a ford fan so if agar gets the top gig We can discount ford out of the equation in any shape or form.For me it will be a Carr Walker backroom staff with someone else coming in overseeing the development side which I find strange because isn’t Simon Bell still employed as HOY? Unless he’s part of the 16s reshuffle you talked about earlier Marty ? ( Can’t see our club telling two assistants they aren’t good enough before getting rid? Like to think they would have a bit more class than that despite that might being the real reason)?

Don't shoot the messenger but I've been told that Ryan Carr will be employed by us in 2020 (from a Fev fan I know)

What role he will have?

So then, Agar on a rolling contract to be reviewed as the season progresses. Hardly a vote of confidence in their new man is it?

Hardly the stable appointment either that certain posters keep telling us on here. Appears to be no actual plan yet again.
