Do we think that JK won't have noticed the way Harrison is using Johnson, and not leave 'tiring' forwards on? Now if Fax are so well off for players, have such a great squad, then you'd have to believe that they're happy with Fieldhouse at no.1 and Potts to back him up. So if they want Greenwood then we'll have one of those 2 here OK? I also appreciate that Batley are probably the only club which acts like a gentlemen when it comes to contracts and signing players, they never splash it all over the place until the deal is done, unlike every other club who are already starting to throw new contracts around, but after last years' 'open secrets' I hope we're not going to be left panicking about next years' position.

Of course your coach will have noticed what tactics Fax are using but this is a fans forum and a couple of people mentioned stop Murrell and you stop Fax. I just offered a differing opinion.

 

Apart from stating the obvious, Batley have been poor this season, usually thats a case of not having as good a player as teams above them hence the league tables. In cases like that usually the higher the team in the league the more the teams lower than them have to slow the better players down with spoiling tactics hence my comment about Batley having to slow us down. Dont worry though its not just a rose tinted spectacle thing though because I said the same thing when Fax played Leigh in that Fax will have to slow Leigh down, we managed to do that and nearly came away with the spoils. A bit similar to what Batley did at the Shay, and if they can get away with that we should have a pretty close game.

No, it is speculation.

 

There's a difference.

I think you would certainly have been challenging for 6th spot.

You clearly misunderstand the meaning of the word but I won't hold it against you.

Just a parody of my favourite postings on here. I love the way so many people know the facts, and always type it in capitals. 

 

On another post, the blue sox bloke states if Black had been fit all season, we would have been in contention for 6th spot! I thought we were!

nope sorry,dont try tell me a full season out is just punishment for a flutter on your own lads in a once in a lifetime final,then  we look at some a the tackles this season like the one on sam barlow that could end a players career/income  and they get 4 or 6 games out. we know its fault and too late now but i cant wait for him to wear a shirt for us again and i reckon he might just pay a few folks back on the pitch for letting us down.

Discussed to death. Let's agree to disagree.

What a presumptuous load of rubbish!

 

So, if one Batley fan makes a post in support of his team and forecasting a win we should then state that you are all the same, arrogant. It's just one man's view.

 

I have never heard anything other than praise for Batley Bulldogs from Fax fans. It is one of our favourite away games but a few of you still seem to think that we consider Halifax RLFC as a SL club taking time out. Well we don't. I assure you. Anyway, maybe next season you will divert your bile towards Bradford and London.

no problems at all,everyone as an opinion and if you think he got what he deserved then fair enough.i think a ten match would a sent a signal out for both players but thats just me, nuff said. UP THE DOGS.

 

ps, fax fan who reckons we might need to lay on best wake up and keep an eye on whos laying on come them last 20 minutes, we do kinda play better when we get a quick play and a roll on so BEWARE,,the DOGS.. :bb:
