Doubt GM was under any illusions about playing budget and he has had to put almost a new team together and has been unlucky with some long term injuries to Spicer, Buchanan, Wright, Brown, Ben Jones and loss of Spaven. But we look like we will be staying up and that was all that I want for this season. If some of the purported signings are for next season are true, we will be much stronger.
 

 

Yes, I reckon any coach should be given a couple of seasons to prove what they can do with their side.

 

We must all be aware, however, that the criteria for next season will probably be much more testing. There is a strong probability that clubs will need to finish in 8th or even 7th position to remain in this division for 2015. We won't be the only ones "strengthening" whilst working on a lower budget.

 

It looks as if we shall "live in interesting times".

I do feel for Glenn Morrison a bit though (I can't use GM - makes me think of Genetically Modified). It's his first proper coaching job; he probably came into it full of enthusiasm and then finds he has to cobble together a side for under £12.50 because he has been given ###### all money as we "run a tight ship." Tight being the operative word. So he has to beg, steal or borrow to get a bit of talent in who he hopes might do well.

 

His main mistake was to mess about with the local lad and play his own favourite in the same position when to most other people he's better suited on the wing. The team doesn't gel and the pack isn't half as good as it should be to give the half backs room to move. And we could do with a more vocal captain - if only because it re-assures the fans who like to see the players being given a rollicking after a feck-up.

 

Glenn's wife is gorgeous though, so you can't feel too sorry for him.

I would be happy if he was married to Nora Batty if it made us play better!

Mrs Kear is a good looking lady too.....perhaps it is part of the coaches job spec? Being a vain and shallow individual Mrs Piggys mate is a very lucky lady too perhaps she should put in for Dewsbury coach when it becomes available at the end of this season......whoops me n my big gob ;)

Now where did I leave that pointy thing that bloke Damocles gave me, I've work to do!
