I for one will miss the away game at Barrow (if we stay up ) , the warmest welcome and nicest fans of the three Cumbrian clubs so don't sell yourself short..... get a good local coach , some good local players from the wealth of talent in the local game up there and we'll see you back up in 2016.
Thanks for a great game , day out and good luck !

Bang on, cannot believe it
I wondered how long it would be before you chirped up.

Never saw Richie at the game today, he must've been up the coast!
Down in the smoke visiting family actually, first home game I've missed all season.

As for today, well, we were pretty clueless.
Our left hand side can't pass from centre to wing the ball just goes into touch!.
I know BG uses the excuse that he has to work with the tools he was given, but Vievers seems to have found a way to make his inherited squad perform ( today excepted)
Just before half time with the score at 0-12 we were awarded a scrum. There was a time not long ago when the players would have shown some enthusiasm and quickly formed a scrum to stop the clock, Not today.
I want whoever coaches the Raiders to succeed but I really can't see what Mr Goulding has brought to the party.
Yes, the players are fitter but defensively we are poor ( look at our points against) and our attack isn't doing much better.
I've used the analogy before that the Raiders are like a soap opera, I don't mind that but can we please be like Coronation Street where there are laughs occasionally and not an Eastenders where it's always doom and gloom and everyone's fighting ( you wouldn't use the Queen Vic if it was your local would you?)

I think BG was at a different match if he thought that was a good performance.
Didn't he also say he thought we were the better team for 60mins or did I not hear that correctly?
Agree though, he must have been at the wrong game!

we might have been the better team for 6 mins not 60 !!

I think 6mins is being generous, the lads looked like a beaten side during the warm-up, if we carry on like this it won't be long before we are in the Barrow & District League...........no offence intended for the teams in this league.
It looks like Goulding only had eyes on his lad, wearing rose coloured specs, I wouldn't say he had the finest of games, poor tackling and let in a soft try.

That's our problem.

I can see Ricks point. We need a Cumbrian derby next year!!! Lol
Every time I go to Barrow I am visiting Lancashire. The other two clubs are in Cumberland. I did see one Barrow fan with a Red Rose sticker on her coat mind. Don't that many of you care for your Lancashire heritage? I always thought Lancashire folk were a bit like us (I am a Yorkshireman, exiled near Sunderland) - proud of their county. The Red Rose flag was flying at the entrance to Dalton-in-Furness as I passed as well - great to see it.
