Bill Arthur talking about Pia Donkeys, I thought they were playing Widnes.

Who keeps employing McGoldrick? He is awful.

 

Yep!

 

The main reason Salford are getting stuffed is they are being physically pounded by Wakefield so far. They can't make any decent yards other than Gaskell kicks and are losing the physical confrontation in the tackle.

Shannan McPherson's tackle was pretty reckless, sorry to see him hurt but a sense of justice there.

McGoldrick as a spot play is a good bit of coaching by Agar.

Trinity are far from fluent, but could play themselves in to form if this continues.

Close game. Morley, Ratchford and Myler will be fighting themselves to join Salford first.

Trinity played some good stuff there, Amor and Kirmond in particular were far too good for their opponents.

When the opposition is quite so bad, however, it's hard to say quite how well they played. Salford just made no effort to defend. No aggression. No idea.

You're not kidding. Ratchford's desperate to get back, so I've read.

Bill Arthur talking about Pia Donkeys, I thought they were playing Widnes.

Did anybody else find it slightly discouraging that Bill and Eddie discussed and joked about Pia Donkeys unaware of their current financial plight?

Admittedly they don't know everything, but RL commentators should be knowledgable, it's their full time job to know and talk about the game. I found it a tad narrow minded and ignorant.

[pedant mode] It was Stevo [/pedant mosde] I haven't seen or heard Eddie, Brain was hosting pre-game and I went for a big poo at half time.

 

Anyway, yes, while it was thoughtful of Bill to bring up his amateur club - Bill usually has a fun fact or two up his sleeve - with the match not necessarily in full flow it might have been advantageous to pick up upon this.

I hope everyone knows what the score is...

I thought the game must have been abandoned.

Sneyd has to replace McGoldrick for the rest of the season.

 

A Gaskell-Fages half-back partnership looks to at least have some bright spots to it.

What do you expect when a lot of them are working their redundancy notices, as notified to them via Ming the Merciless' self-publicism in the media ?

They really do look like a team who were given their P45s ten minutes before the kick off.

That is one of the more pertinent questions of the evening.

Nobby's not looking so good without the budget is he?

The sad thing is that the attack fashioned under Longy has disappeared.  Even though Salford haven't exactly covered themselves in glory in defence this season (or indeed for the last few seasons), during Sean Long's presence at the club they could really show skill in attack.  Over the last couple of weeks that free flowing stuff has vanished and their defence has gone backwards since the Magic Weekend.

Well said Saintslass. I am not a Nobby fan though I would be very happy to be proved wrong. Hunte & Long had them playing some flowing RL and the kids

were blossoming. Now we are back driving into the markers then one out RL & an up and under. Awful. Come on Nobby some of your attacking ploys went out with the Ark. Lets see the ball doing the work.

What a truly shocking performance that was. I've seen some bad 'uns but that was dire. The worst of the season.

 

I can't condone the home crowd booing the players at the end, though I understand why. A few of us gave a half-hearted round of applause, but some of the abuse was awful. The players must have heard it because they stayed a good twenty yards back from the crowd whereas they used to come right up to edge of the grass.

 

Sad!

 

Oh yes! OF! The score was Salford very few, Wakefield a hell of a lot. :(

It is a little worrying that it would probably be easier to show a marked improvement in poor standard players,now the majority are available for selection,yet the 3 men in charge of the Salford coaching will be given the task of moulding a whole host of new players into a competitive side for 2014. 

Veivers lost his job following a defeat at home to London Broncos - who had lost 4 going into the game,and this has been repeated as Wakefield had lost 4 going into that training session.

Very,very poor and following on from conceding over 60 points at Warrington.

Last week the owner of Hull FC pointed out that they had won 7 games since Andy Hay left.

Stu Donlan lost his position at Castleford when Ian Millward was sacked.

3 coaches and a host of players for 2014 all relativey new to each other as Noble,Hay and Donlan have not worked together,as far as I am aware.

 

Well done Richard Agar.Well played WTW.Just as at Leigh last year you played the basics very well.

Deary me, just seen it, things not going too well for your lot at the moment mate, with Dr Koukash being the latest Chairman to add his presence to the dressing room.

 

Hope things pick up soon.
