Clarke has acheived a couple of good things
Bringing in a couple of good young players to build around i.e Creek, Johnson, Bruce, Carter, Daly all who will/could/should be starters or in the main rotation for years to come IMO, and in doing so we now have probably the best 2 u/24 players in the league in Johnson and Creek.
Clarke also has had us fairly competitive overall against most teams, sure we got smacked by the Gold Coast, but we have been in most games, if we had 2 better imports all season, Ah i miss the Mee and Brooks days, we would have been atleast a handful of wins higher. Also remember no teams have done really well on imports this year, i think Cairns and NZ seem to have done best, and is probably a large part of the reason why they have done very well.
We also have a young and exciting/interesting team, what would people rather see our gruop of developing young guys play, and hopefully improve in the future, or a group of re-treads/vetrans put together, which is what Phil got criticised in the past, personally im happy to see the young guys.
Sure we havnt changed much wins and losses,but IMO if we can retain the best of our group, add in a couple of boomer(ish) (most current 2010 WC's boomers are overseas or guys like Gibson and Martin who i think would be very very hard to get) level talent such as Schenscher, and soemone like a Weigh, Wagstaff, Majok or Harvey, have better luck with imports or get star Aussies instead of imports we will be ok, id probably only look to add in 3-4 (Keep atleast Ballinger, Johnson, Creek, Bruce, Daly and/or Carter and consider Herbert and/or Hill) adding players ie Schenscher, Magden, and 2 new imports or guys like Weigh, Wagstaff, Majok, Harvey (instead of imports) depending on what position we are looking for.
