As much as I agree with you coolie. If he was the best candidate for the job then he should get it IMO ( apparently their was 12 that applied so if he is the best of the 12 he must have something about him). Every coach deserves a chance and DP was a similar mould when he first came to us. But our BOD as high ambitions and if the new coach doesn't match them he will be shipped out I'm sure. So if he doesn't cut the mustard so to speak the gamble will only last a season at most I'm sure. Also you say we can only go one way I disagree we have won one final out of 6 we could take all before us so we can get better but like you say we can also get worse.
Where the heck did 12 eligible coaches appear from ?.
