What?
Our fans going on the Barrow forum goading them isn't doing anyone any favours.Barrow fans are saying we were the better team so let's accept their compliments and not get carried away.Remember, it's where you finish at the end of the season that counts.

I do ,beaten by a team better in all departments not arguing with that,find it sad that a RL supporter thinks it clever to spout about how hard the fans are pathetic.

You ask your steward who started it all on the way out!! Got a pint thrown on mi and punched! And your steward saw that and said whoever it was, was a well known trouble causer, so excuse me for being a bit angry

I don't blame you for being angry and lets hope the steward reports whoever did it and they can be banned.

Please everybody don't get our wonderful game like 'kissyball'. Leave the legit hard stuff to the lads on the pitch.

Rob

Were you with the young lad who had the shaven mohican style haircut ?

He was trying to stir all sorts at halftime and at the end - went well beyond banter !


By the way I was very impressed with Fev last night. Played to your strengths and totally outplayed us. Well done !

I was'nt there so I wont make comments about what did or didn't happen last night, however, rugby league is a family game. Not just in the biblical sense , mum dad two kids, but the fact we all are members of an elite family who support a great team game. The esscence of which means that we accept victory and defat in the same spirit. That is why our game survives. There is NO room available to those who seek to disparage the game in any way shape or form . I would therefore ask all forum contributors to bear this in mind when replying to posts.Many Barrow fans have been generous in their comments and I believe we should accept them with good grace and humility. This is NOT big brother, just a simple request from one who is envious at not being able to attend games at this time.

To be a ROVER is a privilege not to be taken lightly, with fans like ours, we will always be honoured.

It went beyond a craic, especially at halftime. Very classy using that language infront of children !

If you are the one singing obsenities as you walked through the crowd at halftime then you probably got that pint thrown at you for a reason. Im not condoning it either, just making an observation. I was stood with a few lads when you walked through and due to the people around us and the families you were lucky not to get a beer shower. Be humble when you are winning and you get respect. You let down your fellow supporters last night who I gather (from reading posts on here) are a decent bunch.

Its a veeeeeeery long season ahead and the Grand Final isnt won on the 20th March is it ? I have some photos from 2 finals last year if you would like to see them though wink.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Couldn't agree more Bob. Lets remember we have enough enemies outside the game, there is enough divide and conquer coming from other quarters.

certainly can credit where credits due fev were well up for it barrow didnt play badly fev just stopped them playing quite a few barrow supporters had it in there head that it would be a foregone conclusion but after last years cup game fev were bound to be well up for it and it certainly showed in there defence alone its only one game lost for barra and they will bounce back for sure just like they did last year after the loss at batley

One thing struck me was how out of sorts Rooney was. A couple of the Barrow lads suggested that Rooney only trained thursday evening and drove up to Barrow on Saturday morning for the weekend and that this was the first week this season Jamie had actually trained with the squad.
Course, I don't know if this is true but he was well outplayed by our half backs.
The repeated chants of "Rooney is a Fev lad" made me chuckle - the look on Jamie's face and some of the Barrow fans faces was a picture!

Kaye Kept Henderson very quiet and Fletch was hardly noticeable. The forwards were a complete unit - all of them. I notice on Tonka's facebook that he's knackered this morning. No bloody wonder, the effort he and the rest put in. No way through at any time of the match - neither did there ever look like being. Brialliant!!!
