#3043873 Raiders sign 4 on loans

Posted by Flaming balls on 11 December 2014 - 08:37 PM

I'm not doubting they will be good players in the future, but they don't have enough experience playing first team at semi professional level. It's not just the Leigh players we have well over a third of our squad with minimal if not none semi pro first team experience which gets found out like we did last year.

If we signed 4 players on loan into a squad to help bulk it to blend into our squad which has lots of experience it would be a good move. But we have added inexperience onto inexperience which gets found out. Players with 100's of games at this level will likely out perform you, if with less talent.


Plenty of other players make the step up, they all have to start somewhere.

What is wrong with giving people a chance?

We all wanted Cresta as a coach, we have to trust in what he's doing.....

He hasn't let us down before. I'm sure he raided the Ameteur game then too....

Quite laughable some of the comments on here. Sort it out!

#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.


#2992539 NEXT SEASON’S ADMISSION COST

Posted by Flaming balls on 10 September 2014 - 06:33 PM

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

Posted by Flaming balls on 31 August 2014 - 06:12 PM

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.


#2981094 SATURDAY EVENING HOME GAMES IN 2015 ?

Posted by Flaming balls on 21 August 2014 - 04:57 PM

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.


#2977844 Rebuilding time

Posted by Flaming balls on 15 August 2014 - 04:23 PM

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!


#2973236 AGM

Posted by Flaming balls on 07 August 2014 - 07:58 PM

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

Posted by Flaming balls on 07 August 2014 - 07:49 PM

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....


#2972376 AGM

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...
