We're stronger than you in almost every area.
So says a Widnes fan about Barrow. Er ... except winning matches. Forgive me but I thought that bit was important.


When deciding which teams are deserving of top flight status? It used to be, and there aren't many fans down here who wouldn't bring back P & R no matter which team they support.

But I suspect if Barrow had had our injury list throughout the season they'd be in a very similar position.

lol

We have ticked several box's on the SL License quest, so have you & other clubs likewise, who is to say who has the strongest chance, the RL that's who.

You have had a great history, better than ourselves trophy winning wise, you have had your chance in SL and enjoyed the big fat cheques that come with the territory, but your club has WASTED those chances and been in serious financial trouble (bankrupt,insolvent, liquidation) what ever term you want to call it, TWICE.

Maybe if we had not be so prudent and lived within well our means, in other words well managed and professionally operated, we may have a NEW SHINEY (( RENTED )) Stadium you lot love to brag about.

If the SL really want to give a license to boom n bust clubs , your welcome to it.
But if they want steady, improving, solid, financially sound, re-emerging clubs without other SL competing (for fan base) clubs on our door step, well others may be in contention.

The prolonged arrogance by some of the Windes support is astounding.

We lost our leading try scorer in the 1st game of the season (still out)
We had had a very large injury list for most of the season (we dont use it as an excuse)
We have several long term injuries (see above)
We have Hendo missing & a recruitment ban until this club v player issuse is resolved, so we can not add fresh bodies to ease our walking wounded player shortage (see above)

We have only lost 2 league games to your SEVEN, With your operating budget being higher due to higher attendances & your close proximity to the so called heartlands means you get way more away fans visiting you, plus its easier to attract SL Dual Redgisterd players etc.
We have also had 2 away games in the CC against SL clubs to fit in, So id say we are handling our crisis far better than you.

Mick, ignore what Widnes fans say, it's normally said from their backsides.

Enjoy the rest of the season and hopefully see you down at Fev, be a terrific match if it was to decide the title, could see 5,000 there.

It beats the pathetic one-eyed Widnes bashing that we constantly get from you. The only reason anybody commented on this thread is because you constantly comment on Widnes threads. It was a personal attack at you to show your hypocrisy.

You can put whatever spin you like on it, but Widnes still far far outweigh Barrow. One of your biggest games of the season and you still get nearly 35% lower than what our lowest crowd will be,

Better stadium
Better crowds
Better juniors

On the pitch matters far less with licensing. We decided to invest in our youth so that we could pass the criteria rather than invest in players for the short term. In the long run ours will pay off far better than yours. You may have woken up but it's far too late.

You also make our like Barrow are a team on the up, as has been pointed out your average is down 4-500. Your average last year was 2,302 but this year you can only get 2,000 for Leigh?

Most Widnes fans like to see Barrow do well, but unfortunately when it comes the forums your doing a brilliant job of making sure that isn't the case. You're just Lobbygobbler for Barrow, trying to chip away at Widnes all the time in the hope that Barrow will get picked over us.

You may well be but if you are it will have nothing to do with any licensing criteria.

Thanks Chris, how true are your words.

With reagrds to each clubs playing budgets surely each is constrained by the 300,000 salary cap.

This whole post is just one great big example of your duplicity.

One minute you claim you don't know whether BRLFC are ready for super league, yet you have posted time and time again not only stating that but also making the case that you are the best choice, by slinging mud at other clubs. You evidently do think Barrow are ready for super league otherwise you wouldn't do it.
You know you are applying, it's a sure fire thing. And to cap it all off, just today you claim you've never attacked Widnes and just look at your last few posts. Accusing Max of being off his head and needing medication and calling Widnes whingers. Two Faced Mick.

Oh and by the way, you have not nearly had the injury list we have. I've been through it on your own board before now. You didn't have a full team of players you couldn't choose including your captain, your two first choice prop forwards, your best centre, and greater finances (which you've attacked elsewhere funnily enough) don't matter a jot when the salary cap is so low that we're on the same level in that regard. It's just...we're the only team bothering to try youth players out to the degree that we do, and your club hasn't actually bothered on that front in years.

Jog on.

Mick you seem to have an extremely informed knowledge of championship clubs for someome 3000 miles away. Obviously you must have witnessed all this in the flesh to be so well informed.
