I've not commented on here for a while, mainly because of my own disappointment with some of the results but also because of some of the comments.
we spent nine years in NL2/CC1 did we not? So, no, it won't be the death of the club if we go down.
we are not relegated, nor will i go around declaring that we are. It sounds ridiculous as a fan when you run around saying that, even if it might turn out to be true. You support your team regardless, and if we're looking at the stats, we're three wins from the 2014 holy grail of 9th.
we should have won yesterday, as we should have won last week, but we didn't because of lack of composure in the last 40 mins. However, i don't believe we've lost a game (other than Leigh) by more than 15 points this season. And i don't need a reminder that we haven't picked up the points when we should have, but it should remind everyone not to write us off.
we play a solid (but so far, hit and miss) NWC team next week, and I've not written us off. And after that we play Rochdale at home, Barrow away and then Workington at home, fixtures that we are more than capable of getting points from. Get behind the lads, as we did yesterday and you never know, they might surprise you.
as for the 'we need a coach' comments...we didn't have a team at Christmas. Reality check please people, Watto and Marlon have us competing in every game and the lads are giving 100%. Sorry for the positivity, I'll crawl back into my bubble of hope and wait for the 'no, you're wrong, we're ####' comments from the more experienced, educated etc etc.
