Ireland and Philbin don't mix
"Jeff Ireland has shown that the players he is good at selecting are not the same type of players that fit into Philbin’s system."
"Whether it is Ireland who cannot supply the proper players or it’s Philbin’s system not working, something is going wrong."
Ross forcing Philbin on Ireland is the biggest problem. Ireland is not that bad, and neither is Philbin, but they just are not on the same page.
I can't see keeping Philbin and telling a new GM he is the coach. That is how we got to the place we are now.
I wish Ross would just blow it up, hire a credible GM, and then STAY OUT of his way, but I don't see Ross learning from his mistakes.
