Been hearing that Briggsy has signed for Sheffield Eagles on a 2.5 year deal. Not sure if he signed from now or at the end of the season.

It is interesting to note that Dewsbury offered to meet the same terms as his contract with you, which wa a fairly good one for the Championship. Sheffield offered 50% more, what with them being so money-rich and all. I just wonder where they get it all from.

Heppy stated he couldnt commit due to his injuries. Thinks like this happen, the team needed an overall i said that after our woeful performance against Batley in the play offs.

Finn aside i agree with the changes. (but even then i could see the reason behind Finn going in place of new blood tho granted it hasnt worked).

to me finn looked tired and out of sorts towards the back end of his last season with us, the change of scenery has done him the world of good....Be intresting to see how he goes the back end of this year and certainly next as looks to me watching on tv that the adrenaline is wearing off and the games catching up with him a bit?

Halliwell was AH decision like with JB's decisions we dont have to agree with but need to support!

It's worrying that a player doesn't want to come back to Fev when he only left for S/L and when they released him he came back. Problem is we need our players back now not loaning them out to other clubs As for him not wanting to come back the coach should be sitting him down and finding out what the problem is this player is one of the best when he is on form and as good as any in our team. Looks like we are helping other clubs out when our own is in trouble Come on Frv sort it out

Totally agree with you JT but im guessing MC is being pulled allover the place at the moment.Im sure hes aware someone needs to speak to the players and find out how they feel etc but to me thats part of the coaches remit . Players are bound to get upset when the likes of Samutt are coming in for one game here and there every other week thats the down side to DR. Look at sharp last weekend? he was our form player for the first quater of the year now hes coming off the bench? an out an out winger on the bench? you think hes going to be happy with that?

Heppy was no longer the player he once was in his last few months at Rovers, you cant let sentiment get in the way im afraid, Heppys time was done as is Kyles

Kyle's only 26 though Dave, Jonathon was 31/32. By the way he would have definitely volunteered for one more season, whether selected or not but of circumstances mentioned would have been different. Your correct about J Dave his form was just about done.

So how long do you keep a player even a young player if hes not upto standard, 1 month, 2 months, 6 months. Serious question mate, Kyle was nowhere near upto the standard we needed. Do we keep paying his contract because we all like him or do we let someone else pay it. It is a ruthless business sometimes and the coach cant win whatever he does. Kyle will probably come into form at Sheff and people will say we should of kept him. I wanted him to regain the form of old but the games I have seen it wasn't happening for him

I agree Lowfield...a change will probably do him good plus its a big earner (Im guessing ) off the wagebill whilst we get ourselves sorted.Best of Luck to him tho smashing bloke.

There tends to be too much emotional attachment to players and to be honest everything to do with Fev. That's not the way to be successful...

Agree about the attachment to players MM but not to the club? We love the place..but can see where your coming from.
