With Feisal now being the major shareholder can we guarantee that he will be here next season. Feisal will pick the 'B' shareholders members and as I remember it they are the majority of the board. Therefore they make the decisions.

JT no one knows the facts and probably never will know the full truth. But some of the rubbish I've heard today about MC is unacceptable to say the least. Some people have short memories if it wasn't for MC we might not of even had a club to follow on today's date never mind be talking about today's game.


TG. Some of the shouting after the match was unaccepable today as well theres a time and place

They will give us an idea at the fans forum whats gone off and After nexts weeks game today will be forgot about

Forget the Sheridan/Campbell thing, today's performance wasn't a one-off, every season for the last 4 years has had the same kind of shock defeat to opponents who are getting paid much less than ours. These are the highest paid players in our division, thanks to Mark Campbell, so why shouldn't he feel aggrieved at our under-achievement in major finals, semi-finals and NR Cup games? If you get paid top wages you are expected to deliver, otherwise the paymaster becomes very unhappy, maybe to the point of making rash decisions that are not always the best.

Maybe the players didn't perform because they were unhappy, but they are arguably the best professionals outside Super League, and should have been capable of putting all that behind them.

Agree JT and let's look forward to the next chapter at Fev (if the rumours are true) and lets welcome one of the greats of our game to our club in Shaun long. And let's show him what featherstone rovers is all about SHAUN LONGS BARMY ARMY.Yesterday was just a day and today is a new day lets just move on and get behind the lads and the club.

ABSOLUTELY 100% SPOT ON-these blokes are so far ahead in every aspect of playing the game than Swinton (the table don't lie)and in terms of preparation for games,training and profesionalism that it shouldn't have bothered them if me big bob and mr evans coached em.they are well paid to do a job they didn't do well.Let the BOD make the decisions ,bring in the brass and run the ship and the players should do what they are paid to do and to the best of their ability consistently which they didn't do yesterday.and I would presume they wont need the fans to tell em that.

you should see the shiiiiite on facebook mate, if i was him i would stick 2 fingers up and be long gone, people who hardly go to games caneing him in public for his wife and kids to see, then if you defend him your classed as an arselicker by faceless key board warriosr. Puts me off watching Rovers to be honest think if it wasnt for all the good mates iv made going over the years i would stop. Some people who should know better havent half been sticking the knife in

I don't use Facebook. But if that is the case some people have very short memories. If it wasn't for MC we might not even have a club let alone a chairman to slate. I also agree its not fair on MC let alone his wife and kids its disgraceful to say the least. I'm in no doubt that MC is here for the club and everything he does is for the benefit of the club and sooner these people that slate him realise this the better.

some of them i noticed are the same lot that take a moral stance on what they deem as inappropriate chanting and want fans banning for LIFE for pushing, but dont seem to mind joining in with a public execution of a man thats put hundreds of thousands our way for his family to see. Dont worry mate they will be the 1st to leave if we go rubbish again sour taste left in my mouth after yesterday

i've no doubt Mark Campbell will be at the fans forum and he will be taking on allcomers. this bloke doesn't walk, he fronts up.
