#3152510 Roughyeds vs York

Posted by TOSH1960 on Yesterday, 03:00 PM

Hi Folks, Another weekend and another tough match for the Yeds. York are on a roll and playing some good fast Rugby. How do you think the result will go? I'm going for a close one. 22-18 to the Yeds.

Wow, when I broke my leg I was in plaster for 12 weeks ! It took me 3 more months to start proper training. I wish I'd have had that miracle working physio. This whole incident has left a nasty taste in the mouth right from the beginning. Looks like we've been shafted again if that report is true.

He never said he had a broken leg! He damaged ankle and knee ligaments. Even if he didn't miss any games, it wouldn't make what happened right.

Hi Fellas, I hope you are not going to throw the towel in just yet. I for one have been really impressed with what you've done so far. Really hope you keep the conversation going or fully expose the lack of co operation from CH. I am sorry but don't know who any of you are but reall appreciate what you are trying to achieve.

To be honest one of their players touched it down before Tyson. I'd swap Hughes for Files who doesn't seem the same player since injury and going part time. Totally agree about Owen and Neal, both playing out of their skin. Need a good solid win this week and see what happens with North Wales vs Keighley & York vs Swinton. Top 8 is really close with teams all taking points off each other.

#3145938 Play Offs on th' I-pitch

The lads trained on a synthetic pitch all through winter, although training on grass now. Not sure how similar this is to the I-pitch but just hope the lads are involved come the end of the season.

Great win and cracking match to watch. Some great banter as well. 

#3143578 Swinton Game

Well i'm looking forward to the Swinton game after the good win against Oxford. Hopefully we will play with the same aggression, communication and structure against one of the stronger teams. Should be another great game.

Bit more commitment and communication today. Did what was needed and will help before meeting Swinton next week. Hopefully the proper Oldham will show up. 

#3139674 loan signing

Posted by TOSH1960 on 12 June 2015 - 09:02 PM

Clifford, have you seen anyone leading us around the pitch and our kicking game is so shabby. We need someone to lead us, even if he is young. But centres are needed as well. Especially with Ashton and Ford missing but at least we have Tyson back.

Posted by TOSH1960 on 09 June 2015 - 09:01 PM

Hi HOTTB, I have at no stage denied anyone the right to their opinion and i actually say i agree with you on many points. Wingers leaving, we brought in two, one has left within the last week and the other is struggling for form. Cookie left and i presume Tom Ashton was brought in as a replacement, sadly to get injured. Ford came on loan from Salford, was taken back because of their injury problems, now could be injured looking at the state of the ice pack on his knee. Let's hope it isn't as serious as it looked.

This means if we are not offered anyone on dual Reg, we unfortunately have to play people out of position, especially with 3 players out suspended.

After discussions with CH, You may know the financial situation better than I do and could tell me about the possibility of bringing more players in. And I totally agree that it would be nice to get one or two experienced super league players for big games but the deal seems to be to bring young fringe players through.

The point I was trying to make, perhaps badly is that in my opinion the coaching staff have done all they can to address problems and I honestly believe if the players had kept to the game plan at Barrow, Keighley and at home to Crusaders, we would have run them very close or even won. Hence Nobby and Spanners obvious frustration.

I agree with most of what you have said above HOTTB but differ on your criticism of the coaching staff. I think they are being worked on but not being implemented by players. Hence Scott & Spanners frustration. New blood required I think.

Very disappointing, we started better scoring first but then seemed to go back into our shell like last week. Kicking game poor and lacking someone to lead us around the field. If it is a plus, our fitness levels are superb and the last twenty minutes we are fantastic. Just need to sort the first sixty now!

Cracking game of Rugby and the boys bounced back well from the Barrow defeat. Safe journey home to the Thunder army!

Looking forward to the game tomorrow. Always great to see the Thunder army at Whitebank and the team are even stronger this year. Big game for both teams. Bring it on! Come on you Yeds!!!!!

#3121406 Barrow away

Posted by TOSH1960 on 11 May 2015 - 09:17 PM

Quite funny that Barrow fans shouted for offside and forward passes from the first whistle. It was like being at Rochdale!

But joking aside, so pleased about the money raised for Danny's family and the love shown from across the Rugby league world. Proud to be involved with a great game and great people.
