Is a let's all laugh at bradford thread in order? Fnaaarrr, fnaaarrr.



As ever, your erudite contribution is much appreciated.
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

Well what can I say about today, it was a much improved second forty after the shambles that was the first half where Hull FC were there for the taking, but we didn't capitalise and take charge, instead allowing a very ordinary Hull to establish a 16 point halftime lead.

Which ultimately saw us with too much to do.

The only highlight for me is that Addy finally came of age today (what a try) and that as already mentioned above the youngsters are coming on leaps and bounds.

As for Sykes, Worrincy (running on the last tackle and then still trying to play the ball after the referee had blown for the handover), Reardon, Sheriffe etc . . .

Well the sooner we get shut of the deadwood the better, because enough is enough, you either put the effort in or ###### off and let someone join this club who will put the effort in.

Beacuse to us who watch side this side every week, it's plain to see that we have some very lazy players who are only here for the money.

Lynch didn't look match fit despite some good runs with the ball in hand and Langley put in the usual 110% effort.

We won't make the play-offs now and it's time for McNamara to drop the players hindering us and play more of the young players coming through.

Back to the sunnier side of Yorkshire with the two points. Job done.

Agree with the comments from the Bradford fans about Addy. He looked a great prospect today.

He took his try really well, Steve Menzies was the first to pat him on the back which I thought was a nice touch.

I would've taken that scoreline on it's own, but it's the latest in a long record-breaking line of losses that make it seem much worse.

Still too many clueless moments and basic errors from the Bulls.

There was something reassuring about being greeted by leaden skies, a howling wind and even a little rain in the middle of a beautiful spell of weather.

I actually thought the desperation to end that losing run might see Bradford home today. It seemed to just lead to panic though. As you say absolutely clueless at times.

I'd just like to defend Stuart Reardon (at least for today). I don't think he was that bad and at least looked like he wanted to take the game to Hull.

Agreed. Some howlers from him but also some sh!te passes to contend with. He doesn't get much quality ball to do anything with. Any left sided attack stops at Nero, or we favour the right hand side of Menzies, Platt and Sheriffe.

He tries, but as with Sheriffe and Halley, the dummy half scoots simply don't work as a tactic. dry.gif I agree that sometimes it takes workload off the props but they just end up being tackled 5m away by the markers or those near the ruck. Wasteful and infruriating time and time again.

I've never seen a team have to do so little to get a win as Hull did yesterday. Seriously, I mean talk about gifting someone the win. The first FC try, the Bulls players were tackling themselves FFS! Apart from the last try (which was spectacular by the way) they never properly threatened and the Bulls just utterlly collapsed from the start.

The team did superbly to get back to a draw IMO - it was a completely different Bulls side who came out in the second half but the last try for Hull really was the gamebreaker - which was strange as there was plenty of time left to get the win, but it took all the wind out of the Bradford sails. Gutting - yesterday sums up the past two years for me.

Also - what a lot of bizzare decisions by the ref and his assitants yesterday (for both sides before anyone starts). From Hull getting the tap on the 20, despite Tansey apparrently touching the ball before it went out in the opening sets - to the Touch Judge apparently overrulling a decision the in goal ref had made despite the touchy being about 40 meters away and the in goal fella 2 meters. Then the decision out of the blue to give the Bulls a penalty for Hull not playing the ball properly in the first half! You can't tell me every other PTB was correct in that game, so why blow for that? I'm not saying these decisions affected the outcome of the game at all - but it needs to be pointed out - the decisions weren't wrong because they were going against us or anything - they were just downright mad a lot of the time!

I stand by my comment. Hull managed to hang on scoring a try against the run of play, but Bradford still looked like scoring if the Hull-biased Radio Blunderside commentary was anything to go by.
