#3167156 Not Fev or Whitehaven

Posted by buford t justice on 29 July 2015 - 06:05 AM

What's the problem, we've beaten them twice, we're on the crest of a wave...I fully expect us to finish in the top 4, beat Worky, Haven, Hawks and Donny and 1 more, job done.


Lets not get carried away - weve beaten 2 poor sides and won a derby against a side who had played 4 days earlier at Leigh.

Whilst all have been important wins, they are only really papering over the cracks of how bad we have been this season, people seem to have forgotten this lately.

This season has been one to forget on the field, lets just focus on avoiding the drop.


#3165531 Leatherbarrow kicks the Dogs to Victory

Posted by buford t justice on 26 July 2015 - 08:19 PM

Great team performance today, it was a real good old fashioned blood and thunder derby and I really enjoyed it - nice to see as they have been very dull affairs recently.

Lets hope we can carry the confidence on for the last 7 games and finish s very forgettable season on a high.


#3163518 Deadline day?

Posted by buford t justice on 24 July 2015 - 11:26 AM

Do you mean other than this past weekend against Hunslet?

 

You cant really use that as a yardstick, Hunselt were abysmal and we still conceded 28 points - most other teams would have buried us on that defensive showing.

 

We are still a very poor side, beating 2 very poor sides in recent weeks and another "almost won" against an underperfroming Halifax side doesnt change that.

 

We should have recruited a few new faces and perhaps a new coach weeks ago, we just have to be thankful Hunslet and Doncaster are currently a lot worse than we are.




#3161871 Dewsbury Away

Posted by buford t justice on 21 July 2015 - 11:21 AM

Another chance to pick up 2 points ahead of the last 7 games against the rest of the bottom 8.

 

Looking forward to us hopefully suring the defence up from last week whilst keeping the attacking mentality going - if we do we have half a chance especially with them playing Leigh tomorrow night.

 

A defeat though would once again plunge us into the mire with something having to give in the Hunslet- Workingto game.

 

Ive learnt this season though that optimism is for fools, so I think we will lose narrowly as per the norm against sides further up the table.

 

I wait and hope to be proved wrong however!




#3161116 Hunslet home

Posted by buford t justice on 20 July 2015 - 08:19 AM

We were the better of 2 poor sides and fortunately we scored more than them,

An half decent team would have buried us defending like we did at times.

But that said, an importsnt win none the less with some good individusl displays.

8 tough games to come including the old enemy twice - still a tall order to avoid the drop but thankfully it would appear Hunslet are in freefall mode so we should avoid the second relegation spot if yesterday is anything to go by.


#3159013 A week to deadline

Posted by buford t justice on 16 July 2015 - 02:28 PM

Do we need to bring anyone in?

I'd have a look at warrington's gareth o'brien or declan patton either have been playing for
Crusaders

Weve been trying for months for signings with no joy - I think everyone at the club agrees we need a half back but we cant seem to get our hands on one.

Every game is a cup final from now on, so we need John Kear to show us what he has been reknowned for and get the boys up for every single game.

If he can get the extra 10% out of them we have a shot at staying up, but we must improve in games against the teams around us at the foot of the table starting on Sunday.


#3158930 2016 Recruitment

Posted by buford t justice on 16 July 2015 - 11:22 AM

We have a squad that has massively underperformed this season no matter how the season finishes from here on, so id expect one or two more to re-sign and then a big clear out of the rest.

 

Unless a new coach is coming in for next year who can get more out of them. :ph34r:




#3153973 Fev spit the dummy

Posted by buford t justice on 07 July 2015 - 06:35 AM

Am happy with what we are, supported fev all my life through thick and thin, was there when we were in nl2 getting beat by Gateshead and only slightly bigger crowds than Batley get,and I've enjoyed it while we were the best team outside SL. Been a fev fan is an exciting rollercoaster, were a small ex mining town and have some of the best self owned facilities in rugby league average over 2 thousand home gates and still in with a shout of a top 4 finish. Any sport is about been the best you can and the last 5 year that's what fev have been.


I didnt think it was possible, but you have managed to be both humble and arrogant in one post - had to get a little dig in at Batley too.

Well done.

They go quite well and sack the coach, we are terrible and keep ours.

The worlds a mad place.

Lets hope they want the kearosaurus.

#3151005 New coach new players

Posted by buford t justice on 02 July 2015 - 10:31 AM

Flipside at wakefield

If Webster could have signed the kind of player smith has

Would Webster be in a job there now?

So Kevin would have to sack kear
Then provide the new coach with let's say 4 new players to save you from the drop


I'm pretty sure if kevin had cash to splash
Kear would have got some and new players would have been signed

It's quite evident that you or should I say kevin, the club have no monies available

So how do you expect things to change??

With respect Coolie, what do you really know, being a Dewsbury fan and not watching us every week?

Theres plenty in the BISSA fund.

There is also some talent in the squad, but the tactics he wont change are killing any confidence we have to use any ability weve got - three quarters cant play without the ball.

A new face brings a fresh approach and breathes new life in, even if the new coach brings no one in, if he can get that extra 20% out of the team that Kear is failing miserably to do, then we have a chance at staying up.

If Kear stays, we go down, as nothing has changed in 18 months and its getting progressively worse.

But times ticking and nothings changing.


#3149734 Doncaster Home

Posted by buford t justice on 29 June 2015 - 06:49 PM

I for one am looking forward to it. Should give us the win we have been looking for in the past few weeks and realistically I think we can push on and finish above Dewsbury.

Now that would be funny wouldn't it.


You must be on some serious drugs fella.


#3146923 Que Sera Sear

Posted by buford t justice on 25 June 2015 - 08:51 AM

Excuse the slightly dyslexic title.

A few fans were joining in our new chant last Sunday at Whitehaven, so for the benefit of anyone travelling to Bradford, here it is in all its glory.

Please feel free to sing loudly and proudly.

At the start of the year
I asked John Kear,
What will we be?
Will we play pretty?
Will we attack?
Here's what he said to me:

Que sera, sera.
Whatever will be, will be.
We will play one man rugby,.
Que sera, sera.
What will be, will be.

As the years gone on,
I asked the fans,
What lies ahead?
Will we throw passes?
with no one man drives?
Here's what the fans said:

Que sera, sera.
Whatever will be, will be,

We cant stand this dumb rugby,
Que sera, sera.
What will be, will be.

Now the time has come, and relegation is rearing its head, ,
Will we win this week?
Will we win next?:
Let’s all sing tenderly,

Que sera, sera.
Whatever will be, will be.
WE’RE GOING TO COVENTRY
Que sera, sera.

Whatever will be will be,
WE’RE GOING TO COVENTRY,
Que sera, sera.



#3146152 Heading for oblivion

Posted by buford t justice on 23 June 2015 - 07:47 PM

Haha Buford, I will be in Batley in August, maybe we can discuss this further over a pint...


That would be good, be nice to find out that we are both probably nice people after all.

Ill be sunning myself in Florida the last 2 weeks though so may need a rain check.


#3146079 Lee Smith

Posted by buford t justice on 23 June 2015 - 06:00 PM

I hardly think he is washed up at 28!! He`s been out of the game a while and these 12 games could give him a lifeline in the game, thus would be ideal for us.

I definitely think he is worth a shot. His utility value would alone would be of huge benefit-especially given the amount of rotation used with the backs this season.

If we do not, we risk losing out to one of our relegation rivals Hunslet perhaps, as was the case with Sammut going to Town.


Just an opinion, seems odd hes begging for a club if hes still got lots to offer - you would have thought he'd have been snapped up long ago.

Seems too good to be true.
