  1. Ref for Whitehaven.

    Time for a change me thinks. the apathy that is starting to surround the club is terrible. What direction are we going in except league 1 mediocrity? lets face it we were relegated in February when the news broke about the absolutely diabolical mismanagement of funds and budgets, how the hell can we have let that happen, we’ve not got very much money, the bit you do have make sure you look after it properly! Im fed up hearing the same post match comments from our coach. He’s having zero impact now. And FFS stop blaming ref’s and opposition coaches. today was nothing short of embarrassing from top to bottom an urgent rethink on direction and a new impetus is needed. We’re are sliding here both on and off the pitch. take a long hard look at your selves now; chairman, board, coach and players. If we are going down let’s do it with dignity. well done Haven
  2. Full Credit to the Players

    Absolutely! I feared the worst I must admit when I heard the news. Onwards now.....

    Keith Hill was on Radio Manchester sport at tea time complaining about the pitch. You can see what’s coming if we manage to get 2 games on this week.
  4. Lewis Gailbraith

    Shame for us if true. Solid center with size and pace, will go well for you boys
  5. Money Trouble?

    Brilliant! What a mess
  6. Money Trouble?

    http://www.hornetsrugbyleague.co.uk/article/50668/club-statement So it’s confirmed on club website, poor reading TBH. I know you can’t plan for the unplanned so to speak (sponsors going bust etc) but who is our financial controller Stevie Wonder? “Poor commercial performance in 2017 combined with inaccurate financial information in advance of a budget setting meeting” how the hell do we get to weeks before the start of the season for this to come to light? Defo gone backwards off the pitch since Ryan B left us, like him or not he worked above and beyond to get £ into the commercial coffers, no wonder the last CEO disappeared quietly into the distance quite what he’s done, I’m not sure. Surely this shows what a pivotal role CEO plays in the day to day running of the club. Who is steering this ship? I’m really disappointed this has come out at this late stage, smacks of some serious breakdown in the fundamental financial management at the club. You can’t plan around what you don’t have, I know that but to plan a full preseason recruitment on inaccurate figures is shocking. We've done so well to get to this stage as the new Co-op but the timing and detail of this news is so disappointing. i bet the players and coach are feeling more than just a bit peeved. Guess who the club will come too for help again, that’s right the loyal (but limited) fan base again. the one good thing is the board have recognised it and are trying to sort it instead of burying its head as previous regimes did in the past. I hope Killer and the lads can just focus on doing a great job on the field.
  7. Money Trouble?

    Pretty much what I heard also regarding 20% pay cut and NO loosing pay. its not been very well received by the players and coach I guess, not good motivation going into a difficult season. im getting the feeling we’ve gone backwards off the field. Without doubt an ultra competitive league this season, even more so than last year. I just hope this doesn’t effect us too much
  8. Money Trouble?

    I’ve just heard some worrying gossip that we are struggling financially with players being asked to take a cut in wages.....i really hope gossip is all it proves to be. nevertheless slightly worrying and from a decent source also. anybody else hearing something similar?

    Good player, very good in fact, shame we couldn't get him back on board, however I guess costs and having a pretty much full squad saw to that.
  10. New CEO?

    Just read on the website about the Warrington fixture and unless I'm misreading it we appear to have an interim CEO? Unless I've been sat under rock I've not heard anything official, anybody else shed any light on this, Last I heard was Adam Bates was in the CEO's post? Interim CEO Steve Kerr feels this is brilliant for everyone involved with Rochdale. “It is great to be able to welcome a Super League club of Warrington’s stature to The Crown Oil Arena, and it is testament to our fantastic partnership,” he commented.

    Last I heard was that Jono has NOT been offered anything by the club regarding next season.....yet
  12. It's In The Blood

    Went to touchstones today to watch the first performance..... absolutley superb! Funny, touching, heartwarming and engaging. Loved it! Get to a performance if you can. staring role by Brent Rawstron who was great. ***** From me!

    Some promising signings for sure, time will tell I guess. It looks like we are in the market for anybody so long as they've played for / come from / have links to Warrington at the minute. I guess though a coach will go with what he knows. I've heard a rumour that Hornets have set up a recruitment office based at Ikea in Birchwood in the hope they can pick up more local talent. In truth its matters not so long as they are good enough they could come from Mars.

    100% week in week out, no frills or spills just 100% graft. 7 or 8 out 1o every week. Well done Matty!

    The only brothers I remember are the Hiltons, Anthony and Chris from Mayfield in the 90's I think. Two great lads and players
