#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.

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.
Que sera, sera.

Whatever will be will be,
Que sera, sera.

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

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.

How melodramatic lol

Were you there on Sunday?

Its all well and good you commenting from hundreds of miles away, you'd have a vastly different outlook if you actually went to games you cretin.

Last year we put up with watching dire rugby, with the odd decent showing thrown in.

This season it appears to be worse, and no sign of it getting better.

Including the bottom 8 games, we have 12 games left to save ourselves from relegation and almost certain oblivion.

No sporting club anywhere would have stood by a coach when the team has been playing as badly as it has for so long now.

I noticed on Sunday even the happy clapper brigade were few and far between, which is a first.

The fans are turning and becoming increasingly unhappy.

Time to act now Mr Nicholas, 12 games is enough time to get a new face in and try and save the club from ruining itself.

How we laughed at the Dewsbury Ostriches, yet our club are burying their heads in the sand by standing by a coach who isnt delivering - oh the irony.

Hes washed up, was never the same player once he left Leeds.

If he was any good he'd have been snapped up before now.

Plus he wouldnt get the ball anyway under Mr Potato Heads tactics.

#3145067 as the fat lady started singing

Posted by buford t justice on 22 June 2015 - 08:22 AM

One of the most inept performances ive ever witnessed.

2 steps forward, 8 back.

But we will continue to bury our heads in the sand and pretend everything is OK.

Id say my usual Kear out rant, but it continues to fall on deaf ears.

Maybe someone will listen one day, but i fear by then it will be too late.

Heres one 'diehard' whos had enough, and im no longer wasting my money watching this rubbish until something changes.

#3143184 James Brown Signs On

Posted by buford t justice on 18 June 2015 - 09:27 PM

The team was training at the bottom of the pitch whilst I was hiding on the wing during touch rugby on Wednesday and I wouldn't say from the laughing and smiles on JK and JB's faces that they didn't get on but hey, lets not spoil a good rumour

Clearly nothing more than a rumour then if you have experienced them sharing a tender jovial moment together in training.

Thanks for clearing that one up, you really are an asset to this forum and an all round good egg.

You may be interested to know that Batley Boys once was the junior arm of Batley RLFC. It ceased to exist during WW2 and the senior club chose not to resurrect it after the War, presumably for financial reasons. It was left to volunteers, including my Uncle, to launch a reformed Batley Boys.

I wonder whether the tie needs to be kept at arms length so that the senior club does not find itself funding things that at present comes from other sources? I would guess that present volunteers would also like to keep some measure of independence. It's all supposition on my part, of course, and just playing devil's advocate. It would be interesting to know whether the Bulldogs charity could play a useful role.

You have started an interesting strand to this thread and provoked some interesting and seemingly well informed replies. Well done.

The 2 clubs are interlinked anyway, its a logical step to bring it all together, its widely done in Australia and in theory if managed correctly will increase interest in the sport in the town and provide a solid foundation for both clubs to develop and thrive for years to come.

Perhaps a lot of kids at Batley Boys follow Leeds or Huddersfield, but if they play for the Bulldogs at under 11 for instance, they are going to naturally follow the first team, and this in turn brings parents and families to games at all levels.

We all know the club has its problems, and we all want it to succeed.

The only way it can succeed is by staying in the championship, im sure Kevin and the board will continue to try and improve things and i believe they are taking on board the constructive comments on here, but will struggle to improve anything if we go down.

I have been critical of John Kears tactics, but I have noticed a togetherness and spirit in the team over the last couple of games that has really given me a bit of belief that we can put up a fight to stay up, whether we get a half back or not.

Lets leave the debates about the problems and issues alone for this week, and lets get as many fans up to Cumbria as we can and get behind the boys in what is a massive game.

Bring the drums, dinner bell and voices and lets make some noise and hopefully leave witjh a much needed 2 points.
