When will we hear about who is the new coach?

No disrespect to Marshall, as he had a good couple of seasons with us and no doubt has all his coaching badges, but I dont think he would bring anything to the side that Watto/Marlon can't. I think we need an established personality for us to improve on what we have already.

I agree Dave I think a link with Warrington would be a logical step. I think Watto would be a good one for the heart and the fans would react well but I think he should concentrate playing on the pitch this season. I think he would certainly get a chance in the near future if he gained even more experience in the assistant role.
Not trying to make mischief but I genuinely wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't someone from Warrington .Swinton seem to have embraced the dual registration more than any other club so it would be a logical step.
The problem I can see with the logical step is that it would add fuel to the fire of some of the people on this forum and I would have to avoid reading a number of posts from the anti-"use the rules to your advantage" moralist faction!!!.....then again when did the logical decision ever make people popular! I don't want our Board of Directors to be popular, just backing a winning team.

A win at all cost situation is far better than a lose at all cost one don't you agree.?
So it's win at all costs for you then Paul?

Definitely not, but winning is one of the main priorities isn't it? That's what professional sport is about and I expect the Board to have a great say in that. If you are a winning club and can combine that with attracting bigger crowds that will allow you to develop the game in the local area and bring on local players etc then wouldn't that be fantastic!
So it's win at all costs for you then Paul?
I think we've all probably established the ideal scenario is a squad of home grown Swinton players coached by a local hero, playing at a ground in M27 with crowds of 10,000+, playing exciting, flowing rugby with coaching staff going into local schools to help develop and spot talent to play for Swinton Lions. So much so that every fan is so happy that they all agree on everything that the club, coaches and players do.....
but we all know that that's not going to all happen (not soon anyway) so we just have to hope we can get there bit by bit. A winning team is one of the many pieces of the great jelly jigsaw of rugby league.

Perhaps PhillH's application has only just been spotted at the bottom of the post sack!
Anyhow it looks like the final decision has yet to be made reading the latest statement from the club updating us on the coaching position.

Great interview with Bobbie Goulding on Radio Manchester,Interesting to hear his views on dual registration and the damage it's doing to our game.Some very forthright opinions as well as his thoughts on why Steve McCormack left us.I think the interview is available as a podcast on the Radio Manchester website from 10pm,well worth a listen.

I still wouldn't take a risk on him since sadly alcoholics remain just that and are prone to slipping back off the straight and narrow, Paul Gasgoine the classic example along with a few more.
He is entitled to his opinion on DR and that will be down to the RL to decide what they do for next season..the lack of any ammendments so far suggest they are happy with the situation.
Good luck to Bobby Goulding and from what it seems his heart is set on the Salford job so lets hope he gets his wish to coach them.

As for his view on SM reasons for leaving us, he should not be saying it on radio, SM as stated his reasons and thats that. But if he did quit because of the DR system then I think he should come out and say so, its not a dig at swimton but it would show the rfl that respected coach doesn't think it works.
Ps... WHOS OUR NEW COACH!!

Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.
