Very cagey when directly asked about being at the Warriors either as coach or under Bluey in some way.

I think Blueys position has become untenable and he'll be gone at the end of the season if not sooner.

I also think the back room staff will be changed as well - we can't have hangovers from this year and the likes of Wiki, Iro etc are exactly that.

IMO we need a new coach and a completely new regime from coach down to fitness guy.

From the last part of the interview I heard with Dale Budge (sp.?'), it sounds as if Kearney will/has been offered an Assistant Coaching role. But, as I said, I only heard the last part of the interview.

On the radio, they said before Bluey fell out with the NZRL and went to Leeds, he wanted Kearney as his assistant coach with the Kiwis.

Kearney? the same guy who lead Parra for two awesome seasons.....no thanks
In all fairness to Kearney, which coach has done well at Parramatta since the mid 80's? Brian Smith probably had the best time there and lost a GF once (I think) but nothing consistent

Hmmm only heard the last part of the Budge interview also... If we are bringing in Kearney I would rather he come in as an assistant coach under a proven NRL coach... I feel Kearney should be soley focusing on us retaining the WC at the end of next year, and teaming him up with Bluey will not help him, the Warriors, or the Kiwis at all

This sounds familiar....Kearney goes 9 wins from 41 games, and Cleary is below us on the table with worse defense at the Panthers, but it's all the players fault.....whereas Bluey in his first season, with a stupidly young squad and long term injuries to most of the experienced players he does have, cops all of the blame.

What I can't understand with the 'let's blame it all on Bluey' attitude is do people who hold to it really think Ivan would have done a lot better this season?

Surely our season comes down to a number of contributing factors: a team which over preformed in a couple of finals games, loss of form and injury, a new coach who is struggling with the pace of the game and who didn't place enough time spent on defense and has shown too much loyalty to some players who haven't really deserved it, young replacement players without experience, a cocky attitude amongst some of the players with one or two seasons in the NRL, releasing Inu, and the amount of experience we lost last year with the number of second tier players leaving the club.

All this has lead to one of 'those' seasons.

well the Panthers might be above us this weekend, its just that I dont know what the hell Bluey has tried to achieve this season, his interchange options? wtf his master plan to put a injured Hurrell on against Manly then pulls him of cause hes injured lol or his defensive drills that have worked a treat for the opposition, maybe its his "your season is riding on this game" speech, maybe its his plan to get a bad season out of the way ready for next season, its to all over the place for me, anywho what I'm hearing is Kearney will be assistant coach.
