#3181273 23 Aug: Middle 8s - Bradford Bulls v Salford Red Devils KO 3pm

Posted by thundergaz on 23 August 2015 - 03:48 PM

Does that mean we'll stop having to read that Fev fan's constant prediction/hoping of no Championship teams beating a SL side each and every week?

No chance it's a rubbish system and no one will ever go up unless a SL club goes belly up lol.On a serious note well played Bulls I'm over the moon for you fans and club.

#3178436 TOWN v Fev

Posted by thundergaz on 18 August 2015 - 07:32 AM

Looking at our last 2 attendances in the bottom 8s I wouldn't be expecting many fev fans to travel to your place from us if I'm being honest.

I have no sympathy if I'm being honest as this is what the champ clubs wanted/voted for. They wanted a piece of the funding/ promotion and they have got that so I don't see the problem myself and I'm a fan of a champ club. They need to work towards pipping a SL club and making the step up not whinge about how hard or unfair it is. We all knew it was going to be hard so nothing's changed IMO.

#3174370 Wakefield and belle vue

Posted by thundergaz on 11 August 2015 - 11:14 AM

Yeah, but not by your club.

This. It's ok picking apart other clubs grounds but when they don't get gifted a ground and can't afford or get planning permission it's wrong to judge or pull stadiums apart. Yes belle vue is a dump but gifts don't grow on trees Widnes just got lucky that's all the rest are not as fortunate as others.

#3167431 Wakefield to share with Dewsbury?

Posted by thundergaz on 29 July 2015 - 12:25 PM

Dewsbury's stadium is a smashing spot, and we had the pleasure of it on a very sunny day earlier in the season.

I thought though that despite the change in the structure of the league that there were still minimum stadium requirements for Super League. If this is the case then either the ground meets the criteria or it doesn't. If it doesn't then what are Trin doing?

Preparing life for championship rugby?

#3167422 Rams crowds at 15-year high

Posted by thundergaz on 29 July 2015 - 12:10 PM

Not what I was told by one of your players at the weekend!!

Obviously I don't know anything about the above but obviously players will be leaving graham but for the first time in a long time I couldn't care less who leaves this season as their all rubbish maybe barring the odd few like Ellis bostock etc. We need a good clear out graham and that's why I think we will be better next season.I also have a lot of faith in sharp who I think will become a top championship coach given time to rebuild his own team and bring in his own methods etc.Saying that though there is some cracking coaches in our league and you have one of them.

#3165845 When you need a spead sheet to explain its time to rethink

Posted by thundergaz on 27 July 2015 - 09:26 AM

So you're basically saying those teams were just coasting and you were happy with that, but now that performance in the league means more, you're unhappy that teams are trying harder?

Huddersfield are favourites to finish 4th. That means they're one game away from the GF. How is that not having a sniff?

Personally, I think you have decided you don't like this system and are looking for any way possible to justify that opinion. A lot of what you're saying is contradictory and basically judged on a perception of what you think will happen being somehow different to what was happening anyway.

Some seasons have a group of teams that break away. That's the nature of sport. I don't think that will happen every year and I think it's naïve to think it will. We get the same predictions for this "breakaway" every year. Apparently Wire were a shoe-in with the other three for the top four spots. Apparently the same six clubs were supposed to be dominating those top spots every year since 2009. It rarely happens, and when it eventually does, people cry about "predictability" like it happens all the time!

They are the three biggest clubs in the game. Eventually they were gonna finish to three.

Again I agree with everything you say. As for this system I'm not a fan no but neither was I a fan of licensing. I just think clubs need stabability not jeopardy and yes licensing brought that but I don't think it was done properly if it had of been I think it would of been very successful. Yes this system does bring competitive games but it doesn't also same as licensing. I just think this new system as more damages for clubs than licensing ever did. I just feel clubs will over spend and maybe not be here in ten years time with this new system where as licensing protected clubs from this case scenario.

#3165634 Whinging Aussie.

Posted by thundergaz on 26 July 2015 - 10:09 PM

The fact you are praising Grant so highly highlights the fact you know nothing about our season.
We've played 3 games in a week 3 times this season, which perhaps is manageable once in a year but three times.
In the time you lot had that pile up you played Sheff London Leigh and you could of played them with a months break in between and you still wouldn't have won. And what about your whinging grandad who was slagging the ref off against Sheffield? Short memories you lot.

Whinging Aussie that other clubs want? Kear is pinching money from yous lot. TV commitments is his first job, and don't forget that!

I could wear my fingers out typing out your list of problems.

We didn't have a proper half-back and lost because our kicker couldn't kick his own a&se.
Can't wait to see Campbell in that red Amber and black.

He's coming to fev and we're giving batley our whole team for him lol.

#3165619 I thought they were the next great thing!

Posted by thundergaz on 26 July 2015 - 09:50 PM

I've said it for a while now since SL as come around (which is a good thing BTW) clubs want big built fit athletes that's it.Skill has been taken out of the game IMO since SL started. Theirs no newloves Edwards hanleys schofields betts need I go on in our game anymore. Yes maybe it is down to FT training etc but I think a lot of it as been coached out of players to get the fitness and build up etc. This is why I think players differ from one year to the next as some clubs are happy with weight size etc and other clubs want to build players up more which in turn stifles their skill levels.

#3165412 Crowdwatch 23

Posted by thundergaz on 26 July 2015 - 07:11 PM

And just how effective do you think these ' panic purchases ' will be ? , joining squads already low in confidence

I honestly don't know kryten but it's still throwing cash at something instead of building a business plan etc if it's not working. I do believe no club will go down though which is a shame because Leigh do deserve to go up as they have been brilliant this season but I think the 4 their now will be their next season hope I'm wrong though I will be glad to see the back of Leigh this season lol.

#3163418 Tongan flyer lands at Rams

Posted by thundergaz on 24 July 2015 - 08:27 AM

Weird one this I never rated etu at fev and I thought you had signed a very good player in crookes from us but apparently reading comments about crookes on here he doesn't seem to have made the impact I expected him to have for you guys. So hopefully I will be wrong about etu and hopefully see you on the final at Widnes.

#3163416 Well done Leigh. Champions

Posted by thundergaz on 24 July 2015 - 08:22 AM

They certainly started to flag in the last twenty against Wire, but then in the eights they won't be playing the likes of Wire. They've already beaten Salford and Wakey, whether they'll be good enough to beat Rervers or Widnes is another matter They certainly play some very attractive, slick football. Good luck to them.

I agree with you good luck to Leigh and I hope they do gain promotion as they are a very good side and entertaining to watch. If this Leigh side doesn't go up I don't think any champ club will ever go up as this Leigh side is very good and I doubt it could get much better. The problem with Leigh and the rest though is the cup doesn't put players contracts on the line. Players at Widnes hull kr wakey and Salford are all playing now for their lively hoods and staying in full time contracts and SL. I think the middle 8s will be a totally different ball game to the cup matches. I'm just hoping Leigh don't get on the end of some big scores against them because they definitely don't deserve that this season. But like I said best team in the champ by a mile and hopefully they will get promotion because they deserve it after a fantastic entertaining season they've had.

#3148498 27 Jun: CCQF - Warrington Wolves v Leigh Centurions KO 3pm (TV)

Posted by thundergaz on 27 June 2015 - 04:50 PM

Really enjoyed the rugby today. It was a great game and I think tiredness just out did Leigh as their wasn't much between the 2 sides. good luck to Leigh and hopefully they will go up and shake a few SL clubs up while their up their. I've got to take my hat off to the way the team and club have gone about their business this season on trying to get promoted and hopefully it will come off for them at the end of the season as they definitely will of deserved it.
