Well said Flying 5,off the field things are moving in the right direction,with all the ground improvements been made and happening in the future,BUT we must be still in this league at the end of the season,would our club be able to survive if we dropped to championship one,we would be lucky to get attandances of around the 400 mark.All the hard work been done by people who love this club would be for nothing.I believe the players we have are good enough,but with one or two old heads around,just to keep things calm when the going gets rough is needed.

We have some winnable games coming up and when you look at the games we have won, they are teams in the lower half of the table - Barrow excepted. Leigh's thrashing at Halifax puts our result in context. We have a new coach, new team and a lower budget so we were always going to struggle to match last season's 7th place.

But we need to start winning very soon and in my humble opinion need the likes of Craven, Buchanan, Jones back in the side to provide the experience. Successful sides are generally experienced sides who are better able to handle the setbacks.

But we should be in no doubt that relegation would be a financial catastrophe. Poor crowds, large travel costs, loss of sponsors etc.. The team would have to become semi-amateur.
