Wont make any difference.
players just aren't good enough.
This season, one of the most important for years, has seen the board lacking in ambition and foresight in many areas and the coach's signings very very poor.
Very disappointed.

28- 13 Rowe sent off a dismal day for Batley. The folly of a wafer thin squad has been exposed. Goodbye Championship.

The players/coach/board deserve exactly what they've got.
End of story..

Any decent player we have had this season or last has just been cherry picked and there is nowt we can do about it.

It's a shame we have created this demise from our own recent success but we're not down yet so lets see what happens.

Nah, Even I the ultimate optomist when it comes to Batley, realises thats it. Time to rebuild in the third tier for a few seasons :O(


Now where did I leave that pointy thing that bloke Damocles gave me, I've work to do!

And next up we play Dewsbury. How much fun for them if they put the final nail in our coffin. We started the season with 1  half back we were poor . We finish the season with 1 half back also poor its like groundhog day. The lack of ambition by our club has for once let us down. And our recruitment ,well enough has been said on that one. Feeling very let down have heard we still had funds available in Bissa we should have gambled  IMO.

We are down and we all know it.
The writing on the wall for me was at the end of last year when other clubs were resigning existing players for this year (as we did to a certain extent)and announcing new ones for this year but we waited until all that was left were the ones no one else wanted.then bolstered a paperthin squad with untested DR players.that havent played much.....except to give us a points deduction....but I'll still be traipsing down to t'mount next year and will until there's no club to follow.i must be daft.....
