Four applicants according to the Evening Mail. It doesn't say if that includes Bobbie G, but it does state that two of them have international experience.

I sincerely hope Bobby Goulding is not being considered for the position of Head Coach next season. I listened to his interview on the radio after the Workington game last Sunday. I have to say I have never heard a man so full of his own self importance as he is. He said his son had a magnificent game apart from one small mistake which he could be forgiven for as he played so well. He was then asked about where he would be next season. He said he would still be in Rugby but he didn't know where yet. He then stated that if he wasn't Head Coach at Barrow next year it would be a big step "BACKWARDS" for the Raiders. He then went on to say that there were some players in Championship clubs who would be willing to drop down to Division 1 in order to play for "BOBBY GOULDING". The man is so deluded he makes me laugh.

The question I would be asking is "why is he still being considered?" We would be the laughing stock of the league if we gave him a contract even for a year! He has the worst record in the league. He states the position must be full time and things have to change in the running of the club! Sorry but you have been a full time coach and the BoD have bent over backwards for you, what have you achieve? NOTHING......
What is required is a part time local coach who can achieve promotion by building on the foundation we have without blaming everyone else but themselves. You have had time and finance and achieved nothing other than relegation.

I agree 100% with what you say Mike. He has achieved nothing and never will because it's all about him. He's the worst coach we have had in a long time. The BOD made a big mistake in employing Anthony Murray and then another mistake taking on Goulding. I hope they get it right this time. If they back down and give Goulding the job then I am afraid they will just be proving they know nothing about Rugby at all.
