Knights v Keighley

70 posts in this topic

For the first time in many, many years, my friend and I left 10 minutes before the final whistle. We'll give the coach his due in that being interviewed on Radio York he said the performance was unacceptable.

We saw you and John escaping David, and know full well that leaving early is out of character for you guys, but enough was enough and we also headed for the exit just before the hooter sounded. Its well worth repeating the old adage, " its not the losing, its how you lose".

Didn't make the bash last night but was just wondering what on earth Gary Smith and Geoff Pryce would have made of the York players " efforts" today, hope they weren't there. :O

I've got to admit that score line came as a big shock today probably the biggest shock of the season so far. I feel sorry for you guys not just for losing but by the sound of it the York team didn't get off the bus. But after last weeks result I'm sure it was only a blip for you guys.

Just the other week we were asking how to get more people through the gates, and I think the most important thing is consistency, something we are lacking in spades at the moment. It doesn't help when GT can't field the same seventeen from one week to the next, but that can't excuse the poor effort we saw today. We must put some consistent performances in to keep away from the bottom and get the crowds back.

Same thing I said to GT in interview after the game... and he agrees..

We hope so, Gaz. Thank God I had the perpetually entertaining and knowledgeable Mr Ford alongside to keep me sane after watching that..

Gaz,

I hope you are right, however think there will be a few tough weeks ahead, we never quite seem to have that grittiness that others have to dig deep, we knew Cougars were desperate and would be tough yet appears we stayed on the bus today. Same old York put in a great showing one week then sh&&e the next, so frustrating for all concerned. Not sure what GT will do to turn it round, at very least we need BPs. Donny away won't be easy either then you lot.

Wish Fordy had been on the pitch, in fact after seeing Keith Senior last night think he would still do a job as well, very comical guy with a real passion for the game, him and Fordy at 3 & 4, yes please.

I think you guys will be safe come the end of the season andy. Your home form seems very good over the last month and as long as that continues I'm sure you will be playing in this comp next season. Home form for the so called lower teams in our league will determine whether you stay up or go down and I think at the moment you have one of the best home forms of the teams you are competing against to remain in this league. Yes you have us coming up soon but playing us won't effect your season in anyway and with a bit of luck you might get a bonus point from our visit.At least you haven't got us next weekend when I think we will be looking to right a few wrongs from Thursday night so I fear the worst for town.

Worst performance of the season, thought Keighley were pretty average, but did the

basics very well. Too much trying to get the ball wide from a standing start after basically

very little or no go forward.

Won't mention individuals, but think there's room for Brining off the bench to add some

urgency at the play the ball & give some tough tackling down the middle next week.

Ref was almost as poor - home advantage is all well and good, but blatant cheating and dangerous play should be stamped on regardless of who does it. Shoulder charges are banned now, you'd think everyone would have had that memo, and tripping has never been allowed. Flopping, lying on, offsides, ripping, high tackles - what a sh*t game of Rugby it was.

I take it the ref never gave a penalty to York?

Bluddy hell, hope the club treated him, after the euphoria of the previous evening it must have been like watching a plank warp!

Like the rest of us, Geoff might consider sueing the players under Trade Descriptions, we all presumed we were paying to see a match between two similar sides.

Yeah, you said...

York were p*ss poor today, no excuses, just didn't bother strapping our boots on. It was almost as if the fix was in tbh, never seen anybody look that uninterested in anything they do.

Leahy was rubbish, York were rubbish, that bagguette with mystery meat and gravy was rubbish.

But at least we put more on Workington last week than Batley did today...

AND we live in York...

It certainly was, for the reasons you give plus I didn't think we saw all that much skill from either side, ultimately an average team beat a very poor team.

Also thought the Knights were fortunate that Marchy left the game quite early, in the second half think he would have settled his side who were at times very impatient to score mixed with some terrible handling. If Marchy had been there to scheme and steady the ship, and IF we had taken a couple of half chances the score might have been something like 52 - 12. But still a million miles from a bonus point.

I thought Keighley actually played much better when March went off if I'm honest.

We'll have to agree to differ on that one Gav. Danny Jones was allowed to do as he liked by our inept aces but at times I still thought that Keighley were racing around like headless chickens in the second half only managing to score 16 pts in the process. Going down the slope I believe a half decent side would have been able to claw back much of the first half deficit and gain at least a bonus point.

Talking of Marchy, just had a laugh reading the League Weekly, in which P.M. is claiming mistaken identity in using foul and abusive language to the official. Nice one Paul!
