When asked if h would be coach next season he (IT) said he didn't know, he'd heard that it might e Matt Calland but would o hat is right for his family.

 

 

On this forum, mid-June, it was stated that Matt Calland would be coach next season.

I find hard to believe that IT does not know, unless something has happened recently to change the situation.  If true, will Matt be Head Coach? Could someone from the club please clarify this situation to stop the speculation.

 

Give the orginal agreement ("he will work with the first team squad"), it's good to hear that Matt has made "valuable contributions", significantly at Oldham!

Hopefully this will continue for all remaining home games and through the play-offs, phasing into his full appointment next season.

 

 

So, onwards Hornets onwards - back to a winning formula.

 

Worryingly, no response yet to my question in another thread.

Have you asked your question in the correct forum glemiln?  If you post a question on here and expect official answers from a representative of the club I'm afraid you'll be in for a long wait.  The board have had a bellyful of the abuse from some people on here and have long-since stopped considering it an official forum a link to this forum was removed from the official site ages ago!.

 

Try 'phoning the club or emailing them and I think you will get an answer.

If I were Mr Calland, I wouldn't want the job. If he watched this forum for even just a week, he would likely think: why bother, if we lose even a couple of games, I'll be public enemy #1.

Y'all need to get behind Hornets for the next 5 games. So....

Quit griping, shape up, and cheer your team on to victory.

Being a great player does not mean you'll be a great coach. Not saying Matt isn't, only that it's not a foregone conclusion.

I'm curious: do you really know how he has been treated by the board? Or are you just talking?

Totally agree being a good player dosent mean you will be a good coach however Matt Calland has a Championship Grand Final Winners medal which PROVES he is a good coach so thats that one answered easy (know your rugby league)

And just to cure your curiosity yes i do know exactly how he has been treated by the board and in a word its shabby!

It would seem a few posters on here want to make reasons why Matt shouldnt be coach, can understand that if your a true Hornets fan, how could you make a case for Ian Talbot and not Matt? - I think your a board member starfirehypervixen and I think I know which one

Not a job I could do, nor would I want to.

Well meaning amateurs, doing their best. If I had something to offer, I would, but I'm not qualified.

I might get an answer, but would it be official and for distribution?

Surely, if Matt's appointment is official, the club would have posted the news on it's official web site and elsewhere? The 'news' was greeted well on here, but  IT's "I don't know" comment was inexplicable and not surpisingly, confusion seems to reign, going by comments on here.  For all concerned, is it that difficult  to communicate the facts?  Apparently!

If you get an answer then the can't stop you making it public can they pal, come on now you're taking this to giddy limit!  Telephone the club for an answer first before you worry about what to do with the answer when you get it!

 

Simple.

The club has ended up getting in a right pickle on the Matt issue. Smoke and Mirrors. But the truth always outs.

Who ever the coach is to be and that is down to the board .The person needs to be in postion before the end of this season .So they can build for next season before players have been signed up by other clubs
Success does not consists in never making blunders,but in never making the same one the second time.

Is it down to the Rochdale Hornets board or the St. Helens board?

Any clarification on this or is it your turn to open up the old wound this week?

Personally think you Die Hard Fans are being treated like 'Mushrooms' by your 'Open & Transparent' Board ! (IMO)

Lets not be blinkered into thinking there's only one man for the job, there's an awful lot of quality un-contracted coaches knocking about and a very limited number of coaching positions. Calland is the obvious choice but the fact it's looking increasingly unlikely that hell take over may mean there's a good reason.

My money is on Matt Calland being relieved of his duties at Hornets. The question is does the Chairman respect Members, Supporters and Sponsors enough to actually tell them.
