Our most worry is not getting our ground to the 3,000 capacity in 1/2 years time. Not being funny KOL , but this is most important issue Huns have to face , and nobody seems to adress this issue.

What is happening in this league, is why the super league is boring, & fans in the bottom half give up, nothing to play for & little intrest.
I will allready he glad when this season is now over, as some one who lives 90 miles away I'll be limiting the games I come to for the rest of the season, if we had some thing to gain, I'd be down a lot more.
On yesterday no shock few if any one went, there is nothing worse going to watch your team, espically away from home known you will be lucky to see them score or at best get a couple of points...
On the ground issue, I am sure behind closed doors there is people talking about it at the club, but if things dont improve over the next couple of years we may not need a ground to hold that many

Some good points from KOL and Poolie, at present we wouldn't beat any team in Championship 1 either.
On the ground issue again I say the stadium will hold about 5000, it's just the developed part that holds 2500,-- this was the number of seats installed wwhen the stadium opened and we/the Council applied for a Health and Safety certificate for a all seated stadium. -- you do not have to have a all seated stadium.
On last nights game we did better than I thought.

I also felt like I did 80 minutes "hard labour" watching what was served up on the pitch. Disappointing even before kick-off, to see some of the culprits from the debacle at the Mount the previous week were still there, selected in the 17 this week.
The game kicked off at a snails pace on a sodden ground; two teams who didn't look like they wanted to be there ... and Uncle Ronnie carrying the whistle, who remarkably managed to penalise us FIVE times in the first five minutes before Sheffield got their first try (perhaps two of them were justified).
And so the game plodded on. Througout the 80 minutes I detected no urgency or desire to try and take advantage of a similarly lethargic looking opposition. No annoyance or frustration from players at the numerous unforced errors, especially when getting into decent positions in the Sheffield half. No attempts or confidence to try anything which might test a perceived weakness in the opposition, or catch them by surprise. Apart from Brickwood losing the ball a yard from the line in the last few minutes, we never looked like scoring.
Form over the last six matches; P6, L6, F42, A274. The time is coming when the owners are going to have to make some difficult decisions - although looking through these eyes, those decisions are actually getting easier by the week. It will be interesting to see whether, when, or even if we can afford to take them.
On a lighter note, Number 9 will be delighted to hear he was the "centrefold spread" in last night's programme !!

The reason we have this squad is that nobody else wanted them.
Did anybody see a comment in the programme or on the website either from the Chairman or Director of Rugby saying "we will be sitting down and hopefully signing the bulk of this seasons squad for next year. -- my imediate reaction was YOU CANT BE SERIOUS.
What we need is 2 ex super league players, one with organisation skills, and both with a WIN WIN WIN mentality. Before anyone tells me again that we've no money (we are better off than Bradford Bulls) what we save on the coaching budget we could put towards this cost..
From what I've seen and in my opinion only including the long term absentees we have about 8 players worthy of signing again, and all other clubs in the Championship know this as well.

with regards to the squad, say we get rid of all of them, how on earth are we going to replace them? who do we get in? WE HAVE NO MONEY! if we were in a strong financial position then fair enough, but we aren't so as hard as it is to swallow we must realise that this season isn't about results, what happens on the pitch is inconsequential, it is about surviving
We are in no position to be getting rid of coaches or players, this season is a tough one for us all, but we must not give up on the club, what is happening off the pitch will only make us stronger and help us push forward on it, this year represents a new start, you can't run before you can walk!

Going hoping to see a win might be unrealistic most weeks but find a reason to go, get behind the players even if you don't think that they are good enough and look at the big picture. This season 4 clubs come up from Championship 1 and they will need to find their feet next season so there are some winnable games there but if the club need to make cuts to the playing staff because of the support or lack of it then you might be heading into oblivion and those clubs could get the run on you.
It's your club, don't abandon them.I've travelled over the pennines in the past to the likes of wigan knowing that they would put a cricket score on us but that's sport.

People who know me, know when I lived in Leeds I with my 4 kids was at evey home game, unfortunately my life a work has changed, but at least I still make effort, what pisses me off more is so called fans who live with in a mile of the ground can't be arsed to go to the match.

This season under Barry Eaton the players we have brought in are not playing for him.You
don't need me to tell you just look at the League Table.

Fully agree with the comments about the coaching situation.
Posted 18 June 2012 - 09:08 AM
Average score-- this season for 15 against 32
2011 season for 20 against 30
2010 season for 38 against 15
average tries per game this season 2.88
average goals per game this season 1.82
COACHING STATISTICS --based on my own formula games won, points scored, points coceeded.etc
1st place PAUL MARCH.
2nd ROY SAMPSON
3rd GRAEME HALLAS.
4th MARK CASS
5th BARRY EATON.
No comment from me--- just enjoy them.

That's what would give us a truer picture - some say the team we had under Paul didn't need any coaching because of the class of player we had and lets be brutally honest "Training wasn't high on the priorities list now was it" - And the win bonuses well say no more.
So to make a point on the coaching stats using my formula =success/points scored/player budget I get this :-
1st Barry Eaton
2nd Mark Cass
3rd Roy Sampson
4th Graeme Hallas
5th Paul March
No comment from me - but you can make stats to look like what ever you want them to look like - Just Enjoy them

Anybody remember Paul Whites son running on and off the field with the kicking tee for us. at Bramley He was only about 7 at the time. Had to stop when some referee complained that he was to young to be on the field with grown men and
anybody remember the incedent at SLS when we were playing Bramley when Steve Ganson shouted and swore at one of our ball boys for not throwing the ball back quick enough. Paul Fletcher who was the Bramley coach had to console him--- the ball boy not Steve Ganson. Margaret Liles who was in charge of our ball boys was waiting for Ganson when he came off the field

Stats are flawed only if you don't agree with them - Lets forget rugby and look at general jobs, if I bought a £2 drill from the market would it last as long as my £150 drill with a life time guarantee? Chances are Nope - but if I could only afford a £2 drill to do my job I would have to make do and try and do the best I could with it because that's my job and that's all I have to work with and actually that £2 drill might last me a little longer than expected as I know the limits of what am working with - But doesn't make me a bad trades men.
