#3128746 John Kear

Linners ready?

Easy cheap option, just like many easy cheap options in the past including Kear who only came on the cheap because he was allowed to continue with his abysmal TV appearances, shows a total lack of ambition.

You have a point Gary, but quality players have come to Batley for 'development' under the guidance of John Kear. A combination of the right money and a quality coach should be a good enough incentive to attract and retain quality players, primarily now for next season . We need a business plan in place now, so we are fully prepared for next season, and can be speaking to the right calibre of player for the next campaign. It grieved me to see three or four Super League players on display in the Salford - Giants game last night, all been through Batley's hands.

But their not coming anymore, either because they're not available or the proposition isnt as attractive as it once was. Batley are no longer a Championshp Grand Final winning side, theyre seen as a once half decent side on the slide, not somewhere anyone would want to come to try and re-invent themselves like Walton, Johnson, Brown etc, etc did in past seasons and i serioualy doubt the "Joh Kear" effect will come into play for anyone anymore, regardless of his undoubted qualities, in reality he's coaching a relegation bound team, again not an attractive arena for any player to come into.


The feel good factor has gone, thats now at Dewsbury and good luck to them if they can ride the wave longer than Batley did, they certainally appear to be grabbing it and building on the process where Batley never did after the GF win.

Its not a money issue, Kevin has already said that, it is an issue of availability.


Seriously, can anyone name any player better than what weve got who is 100% available and possibly more important, 100% willing to come to Batley (why would anyone come to relegation contenders)


The good player pool isn't a bottomless pit, we burned our bridges with the DR fiasco and as for a "loan player" would any other club with a better player see Batley as a good option to loan out one of their fringe players, and again, would that player want to come.

I was told there was plenty of BISSA funds available on Sunday, so that scotches that theory.

I wouldnt know Richard to be fair whats in the pot,i have noticed the BISSA constitution has changed since it was started in that now KN or the coach can ask for funds where it used to be only the coach, has either one, both or none of them even asked for funding, has one asked for it but the other intervened, so many potential answers.


Im never one to look for the coaches head on a stick but i did always think it would be a strange coaching situation given Mr Kear still has his media duties which obviously hinder him from doing his coaching duties

Confidence at the club and in the club is rock bottom.

We have'nt a clue how to win a game the number of

times this season we have had games in our grasp

only to find a way to lose them.This tells me either the

players aren't good enough or the coach isn't doing his

job.But it is probably a combination of both.New personnel

in both departments are needed quickly if we're not to be


Of course theres the third option in that the coach isnt being given the support needed to bring in any players now or bring in the players he may have wanted pre season, his hands are tied by the clubs finances and if the club (Kevin) cant or wont give him any money or if the BISSA pot is dry then whats a coach to do, and then of course there may be no one available to bring in even if money were available.

#3106538 half back

Posted by Gary Coyle on 15 April 2015 - 06:26 PM

I see that the Rams have just signed another half back, Brett Seymour. I don't know how good or reliable he is nowadays however but he might be an interesting acquisition.

Is he the guy who was at Hull but had mental health issues!!!!


If its the same one who was released by Cas he was outstanding for Hull in a few games but then the depression kicked in, if he gets his head together so to speak he could be more than useful, if its the same guy i hope hes doing well and can get his A game going again
