Wakefield on Monday could be a watershed for they way we move forward this season.

My feeling before yesterday's game was that it would tell us whether we could still salvage the season. Wakefield on Monday will probably confirm we've gone backwards after last year's encouraging moderate improvement.

If I recall correctly, six points from the first nine games was enough to get John Kear the sack in 2006, the year in which we went on to make the Grand Final.

Wakefield are no mugs and at home will be difficult to beat. I suppose we shall see how dissapointed the players were after yesterdays performance in how they show up on Monday. We are leaderless at the minute players looking around for instruction. There were senior players out there yesterday who stood heads down and quiet, they should of been shouting from the roof tops to get something going.The air of inevitability and lack of belief was very apparent.

No wishing to derail what could be an entertaining thread but on the subject of Monday's game is the new stand still open to away fans this season?

Edit:I've just seen that helpful chap hindle has started a match thread. I should have asked on there.


North Stand is for home fans away fans western terrace

Cheers, that's a pity. The atmosphere in that stand was excellent when we came last year.

Yes, mate, that's the one but I'll probably have a restricted view anyway if I spend as much time with my head in my hands as I did yesterday.

I will look out for you, I still think we will take a decent following.

Surely Richard Agar can't bang the final nail into Peter Gentle's coffin!

OH the irony!

I doubt that will happen. I think Wakefield will win on Monday but I think the chairman will at least wait until Gentle has Ellis and at least one half back available.

OK Pete, hopefully see you there. There will be plenty of us there but you can't blame the ones who are thinking 'stuff it' after yesterday

2010 Warrington 30 Leeds 6
2011 League Leaders Shield Winners
2012 Warrington 35 Leeds 18

brown at saints. he has no idea any coach that's not bothered about losing two points has to go for me.

Before the 8 team play off system I would have agreed. But now you only have to win slightly more than you lose and get your team fit and rested for the final play offs.

This is the farce that the comp has become there is no requirement for week in week out intensity, just pick the matches you need to compete in.

gentle is blaming everyone and everything else but himself, i think he is evens favourite to go first followed by millward,

You don't even need to win more then 50% of your matches to qualify for the playoffs. The last two years, team number eight had more losses than wins.

O go on then I'll be the voice of reason. Why the sack as we are only 8/9 games into the season, surely too early?

What's reason got to do with it? This is professional sport. Coaches can get sacked at any time.

As hindle has pointed out, this thread is already out of date and should be "Who will finish second in the sack race?"
