Pleased - we won the league, Tomkins continues to be amazing, some good younger players lining up to come through

Not Pleased - We've lost all the important games, we can't beat Warrington (who I think are actually the best team in the league at the moment)

All said though at the start of the season I thought we'd finish 3rd/4th and not get to any finals, so I'm really pleased we won the league.

You didn't win the league. You got a little present for being best in qualifying.

So are you saying that being top of the league, at the end of the league season isn't winning the league?

Pleased -

Super Keith Lulia, Bryn Hargreaves pre-exit, John Bateman, Manase Manuokafoa

Winning a handful more games than in recent times

Beating just about all the teams I felt we should have

The togetherness the troubles of this season have created

Not pleased -

Taking just a point in 2 games against Salford, no offence intended

A leaky defence

The mess of the administration and subsequent reaction from some

The possibility of signing Scott Murrell

Who wins the title of Super League Champions is the team that wins the Grand Final? I'm surprised you didn't know that!

I didn't claim we were Super League Champions (and I rightly avoided using the word champions), I said we won the league, which we did. You can argue the perceived value of winning the league but you can't argue that we didn't win it!

As my posting history shows I'm ignorant of most things when it comes to rugby.

You didn't win the Super League title, you didn't win Super League. You won a qualifying stage. Well done. It's meaningless.

Pleased:

We are still in business

Not Pleased:

Brendan Guilfoyle will no doubt be back in business sometime soon at another sporting club.

I was watching sky sports news either last Thursday or Friday morning and it was on about this take over malarky at dirty Leeds United, then all of a sudden up popped Brendan Guilfoyle who said something or other about it. I smirked a little.

Interesting that you are putting words in my mouth. I didn't say we won Super League, I said we won the league.

So can we just be clear... according to you, Wigan didn't win the league this year?

What's wrong with saying "finished top"? :rolleyes:

nothing! But to put it in to context by saying 'of the league' otherwise it sounds a bit odd.

Isn't finishing top of the league still winning the league? And lets be fair, I also said I expected us to finish 3rd or 4th. If I'm not allowed to be happy that we "finished top" of the league instead of lower, then as I said to you on a different thread last week... I'm obviously not a proper fan :)

You didn't win the league. The league title is decided by the team that wins the Grand Final.

Yes that's right the league title, i.e. the title of Champions, are the team that wins the grand final, and I've never argued otherwise. And its far more prestigious to win that.

However, at the end of the league competition Wigan were top of the league. We won the league, nothing else.

The best season I've ever known as a Warrington fan; obviously it could become 100% better this Saturday. Even if we lost, it would still be the best yet in my lifetime.

Pleased

The signings we made this season - Waterhouse, Ratchford and Hill have all been terrific

Wembley - not much more to say really. Terrific performance.

Doing the double over Wigan and a 2 from 2 record at Langtree Park.

Richie Myler's continued improvement in attack and defence. His choice of pass is now excellent, and he's one of our most reliable defenders.

Mickey Higham - great season when most Wire fans thought he was well past it, Saturday's daft forward pass not included.

Not so pleased

Rhys Evans - not sure he's come on as much as we had hoped, players like Riley are well ahead of him in the pecking order

The manner of the defeats at London and Salford - I don't mind losing, but there were a few poor attitudes on show those nights.

Summed up perfectly i think Browny!

One point worth noting, I believe Rhys Evans got mom in the u20's final on Saturday.

The league leaders shield surely recognises that you have finished first?....does finishing 1st constitue winning?.....I'd say yes

Pleased - Erm, rather! One better than last year, and as I've said elsewhere, a few less mistakes and we could have finished higher up the table as well, but to come from 4th and win the GF, doesn't get much better. Club can't have done any better on the field, and local development continues apace. We might even rejoin the big boys in SL one day, but slowly slowly catchy monkey.

Not pleased - . However, when it comes to getting punters in through the turnstiles, still not happening. No reason why not, although continuing to play in the soulless bowl that is DVS doesn't help. Need to make a huge push on the back of the GF. Changes to Internal Marketing will see the good work continue. Also got to make sure we have a decnet kicker now that Si Brown has played his last game for us.

Yep I did see that Dave, I would still like to have seen more of him in the first team. When he did play, he was all over the place defensively.

On that u20s win - which should actually have been on my list! - I believe Currie was absolutely immense.

I think the clue is in the name, hey well done you were leading the league when it finished, this methods is accepted almost anywhere it is played - yank pseudo-rugby, nrl, afl, celtic league and actually most rugby union club comps, ice hockey, basketball - who are the only fans to moan in any great numbers - brit leaguies quelle bloody surprise!

Castleford Tigers

Pleased- that the seasons over.

Not pleased- the way many critics of our coach seemed to not understand that the death of a child will hurt so much that you won't be able to do your job properly for a long time

the poor example from some of our senior players and the manner in which some of the less experienced players seemed to be led by that example

the way that the club cannot organise anything properly off the field
