#3013843 And you thought Coventry was a long trip?

Posted by Flaming balls on 14 October 2014 - 01:41 PM

The whole thing is completely laughable!

It's hard enough getting the boys to travel to the places already in place, but expecting them to use holidays to travel??? Really??? I think they already give up enought of their time now.

I don't think the club set the prices . The RFL do . I've always thought this was case but I may be wrong

RFL set the prices??? Where has that come from? If the RFL set the prices they would be the same throughout.

#2991710 New Coach

Posted by Flaming balls on 09 September 2014 - 05:24 PM

With the BoD to announce the new Coach on Thursday who do you think would be the best option?

Think you all know my opinion...lol

Tell us again Soss just to be sure lol.

I'd love Steve Deakin back, But it's all down to cost I suppose. Although I believe he has left his latest post.

#2986097 Anthony Murray

I wouldn't want him but we couldn't be much worse than we have been this season

Maybe 2005 when we won one game all season and got humped every week.

would love a Saturday evening, however its not Barrows choice, its the RFL's! All Barrow can do is state when we would prefer to play and hope they listen. What a day that would be...local game during the day followed by Raiders match in the evening and no hangover on the Monday..go for it BoD...lol

I don't know if you'd have much recollection of the raiders games tho lol.

We shouldn't be chasing any coach in my opinion. Every coach knows The position Barrow are in and if they're interested they will come forward.

If I see a job I want I go to them, they don't come to me and say we have a job you might want to apply for.....

#2973353 AGM

Posted by Flaming balls on 08 August 2014 - 05:27 AM

Let me start by saying i am happy for everyone who has come away positive about the future of the club as this is your club.

I may get criticized for reading between the lines and asking the questions that others think but don't ask but as I have said many times before my concerns has always been for the long term survival of the club.

Commitments have kept me away from attending games this year other than a couple of the early friendlies and doubt over attending next years games brings me to the conclusion to step back and no longer concern myself with the club.

On a final note I will sum up 2013

Previous AGM all came away feeling very positive for the future of the club
Followed by an announcement in the evening mail of a financial crisis at the club
A financial crisis meeting was held and all came away feeling positive for the future
Next was an announcement of a cash flow crisis

The clubs position was at all times predictable

So how did the club get out of the 2013 mess ? the accounts show that short term loans and a re mortgage of the ground got the club through followed by a disastrous season seeing the club relegated.

This is not a negative post but reality which no one appears to want to listen too.

Good luck to the club for the future and despite the digs from a few on here I have enjoyed the banter and hope everyone the best for the 2015 season.

If you'd of been there all would of been explained.

I honestly think you knew what was coming and after your months of drivel you didn't have the face to turn up and but put back in your place.

You get the digs as of the drivel you post nothing else.

You've tried your best to turn "fans" against the current bod some of which have listened.

Lee is right out club needs every fan onside now more than ever so help instead of hinder.

Peace out!

I appreciate that. The only reason I have doubts about the club is because of the amount of posts D11 has done for the last 6 months about the financial status of it.

Did the agm prove him completely wrong? Is the future bright?

It did mate yes. I came out of there smiling.

I'll be honest his posts over the last few days have concerned me. But the meeting blew all that away......

#2973226 AGM

I don't know how much were allowed to say but do not ever listen to D11 and his utter rubbish anymore. He has made a total fool of him self no wonder he didn't go tonight....

But I think I'll just go ahead and do it anyway.

While not quoting specific figures you still manage to stir the pot!

If you want these questions answered why didn't you just ask a friend (if you have one who is a debenture holder) to bring them up at the meeting?

Maybe the figures ain't quite what Neil expected so he's done a about turn and isn't attending the agm, maybe he has also passed the bullets to somebody else and asked them to pull the trigger. We will never know as he's not able to attend the meeting.

I've not seen the accounts yet but I'm sure when people see them at the agm they "won't" bury their heads.

I've never known anybody who supposedly have so much love for a club want a bod to fail so much.

#2966517 Is Goulding the right man to take us forward?

Posted by Flaming balls on 27 July 2014 - 04:18 PM

If he's going to be asked then it needs to be "NOW" for next year.

No good waiting til season is over.

I like Bobbie, but became a little disheartened after the sportsmen a dinner. He doesn't really seem to have time for the fans. I know he's a coach but without the fans there is no team to coach.

It was a discussion I had on Friday night with a few people Barry. People are bored with every topic getting hijacked with the same tripe by certain people. So they don't bother to post anymore. Don't take it as personal.

#2959108 Has this season been as bad as 2005

Posted by Flaming balls on 14 July 2014 - 06:18 PM

Yes your right but maybe a new topic is required as the importance of the future of the club

We'll start your own topic instead of high jacking every topic with the same old tripe.....

Let's see how many replies you get...

#2959107 Has this season been as bad as 2005

Posted by Flaming balls on 14 July 2014 - 06:15 PM

2011 we had Darren Holt as Coach who was not appointed until December and between Darren and Mike Sunderland they put together a local team and as far as I recall Darren predicted the number of wins at the start of the season and was pretty much spot on and we enjoyed watching a season of good rugby with a close run result
2012 We had Darren Holt as coach who continued with a tight budget and again predicted the number of wins for the season and was spot.

2013 The directors sacked Darren with a years contract money left to pay and also sacked at the end of the season without a replacement in mind. The Directors appointed Anthony Murray in October and a team was put together which has proven to be simply not good enough for the league we were in. Murray leaves part way through the season and Bobby Goulding appointed, a number of new guys brought in and yet results remain very similar.

2014 BG wanting a 3 year signing as coach and announces that he is looking at local un proven as yet players for the following season.

With 5 teams relegated this year and only the top two back up next year the club needs the best players available and affordable to ensure a shot at going back up.

were did it go wrong

lol take your tongue out of his a***.

He lost the dressing room that is why he had to go.

Your constantly going over old ground. Boring (yawn)
