i've watched your game v leigh, and your pack looks very good. i think they could take you a long way this season. also a good kicking game




#3269945 Statement from the club re social media

Posted by oldrover on 08 February 2016 - 10:13 AM

They should be above it be professional and ignore it

they're semi professional, so maybe they should semi ignore it. you full time doylum




#3269028 ffs DR

Posted by oldrover on 06 February 2016 - 05:19 PM

it's weak leadership from the RFL. scrap DR and reintroduce "A" teams.

Dont worry boys, you will have to put up with RM at Fax for at least another year yet. :tongue:

that's ok, but how much longer do we have to put up with you




#3262109 M.O.M Rovers V Hunslet friendly

Posted by oldrover on 25 January 2016 - 06:26 PM

As long as you dont bring Craven down to your level in preparation for next season.............. :tongue:

 

Seriously though it was just an observation, I havnt even got much of a clue which Fev players were in the photos, may have been some of your fringe players for all I know, but they looked pretty small compared to the Hunslet players. Maybe Hunslet just have a big pack this year.

we've already told you we're going with a small squad




#3254609 Is this where we are?

Posted by oldrover on 05 January 2016 - 05:22 PM

Im not sure if you missed my point Steve, I do not think the problem is players not trying, its that they do not know the systems. Players like Burrow and Hardaker the Fev players would be in awe of and pretty much do what they say but some of the fringe players will be getting ordered about by the Fev players and wont know if they are coming and going so it looks to some of the fans like they are not trying.

i think i preferred it when you were just telling us how good fax were




#3254310 Sheffield (H)

Posted by oldrover on 04 January 2016 - 07:11 PM

There are at least three good jokes in the above, but with the PC brigade going nuts and life bans available for "low level racism" I will have to pass :angel:  

at last, someone who can pass




#3253265 Featherstone Rhinohawks

Posted by oldrover on 01 January 2016 - 03:07 PM

I can understand it for Sheffield as they are short of players as there really isnt that many about at the moment but for Fev its just a result of mis-management. On the other hand you cant blame Jon Sharp though as he is trying the best with the hand he has been dealt but with a pack with less back bone than a rich tea biscuit left in coffee for more than 2 seconds he has to bring some players in from somewhere.

yeh, before you know it we'll be out with the begging buckets again.oh! hang on a minute, that wasn't us.




#3253093 Same old Fev

Posted by oldrover on 31 December 2015 - 08:05 PM

Maybe they have the money but just dont pay on time, afterall winding up orders every 3 or 4 months is either bad management or lack of funds.

 

They did ###### on one of their players who moved to Fax though, part of the agreement was that Fev would pay a good chunk of his wages for the season. Guess what? The player didnt see it and it ended up with Fax having to make his wages us otherwise he would have been struggling to pay his mortgage. I have no idea if Fax got that money back.

so you don't know it all then. just the juicy bits




#3253091 DR with Leeds, Hunslet Confirmed

Posted by oldrover on 31 December 2015 - 08:01 PM

i hate DR, but if needs must, i hope we only use it cover injuries or loss of form. as for other clubs supporters, well, we dished it out, now we're getting it back. and who can blame them.




#3252637 Same old Fev

Posted by oldrover on 30 December 2015 - 07:44 PM

we are running with a small squad this season, due (i assume) to financial difficulties. if players are brought in from Leeds to cover injuries, i can live with that, but if they are being brought in to displace our contracted players, then i don't agree with it.




#3252205 Sunday then

Posted by oldrover on 29 December 2015 - 02:58 PM

that's great news. we don't have to have him put down now. can't believe some of the stuff on here.




#3250933 Briggs and Misi

Posted by oldrover on 24 December 2015 - 04:29 PM

someone mention JD?

i once went out with a girl who worked in Boots the chemist, in the Johnny Dept. i know you may find that inconceivable.
