Season Defining 3 weeks coming up

Or are the players just performing in accordance with the game plan they have been told to follow.

On the odd occasions we throw the ball wide at pace and use offloads we look dangerous.

Then we revert back to one man, error strewn dross.

Ive no idea what the gameplan is, but it doesnt involve attacking play, and we certainly dont have a plan B, and at times we dont look to have a plan A.

I like John Kear and respect what hes done in the game, but other than tightening the defence up, we look no different than we did under Gary Thornton, and we all know how bad our attacking play was back then.

Fans pay money to be entertained, and the 'winning ugly' mentality we seem to have is beginning to test the patience of fans. The grumbles are getting louder every week.

maybe if he got some ball it might be different.....for someone who writes match reports you should be aware which side we score the lions share of tries down even with limited ball, as well as which side leaks the points defensively. from what Ive heard you will have your wish next season.....but it does makes you wonder why a top 2 side would want him though doesn't it ??

Unfortunately (previous post) we can't watch it back as premier/sky went down and apart from a few minutes all there was was a blue screen.

Regards players being wanted by top 2 clubs, then yes I believe that does reflect well on Batley, but be honest here, it comes down to one thing-----MONEY. Do / Are clubs working to budgets? In Batleys case I would say yes hence 'alledgedly' having lower contracts etc, but one thing for sure is the club will be here long after players have gone,and if players ARE seeing greener grass then so be it, but the other side of the coin is players at said clubs will be looking around( having been potentially replaced) and we all know teams such as Featherstone/Halifax etc may have a few half backs/other players that may be available.

Good luck to those that go and welcome to those coming in is what I say, as today loyalty is a thing of the distant past.

By the way Bulldoggy style good luck said half back.

The real disappointment for me last night was our lack of ideas and invention in the opposition 20. This was summed up by the decision to kick the goal from the penalty 10 yards out and showed a complete lack of confidence in our ability to score a try.

I thought it the correct decision as it put us one score from a draw and gave us the ball back. On reflection the conditions would not allow for the type of game we wanted to see and Sheffield are the best team in the competition. I think they only just beat us and scored three unusual tries!. Our luck will change hopefully in a final!

I sort of agree with you in some aspects. I think the point is that we are really close, but it's whether we are able to take that final step. Sheffield are good, and that's twice this season we have been really close to them. If we win next thursday we will all be happy (but with the spectre of Sheffield in front of us again!!)

The fact Batley can hold its own at the top is good enough but I would like to see us reach the summit and as it is a £141 million jackpot on Euromillions tonight and if I win.......... :drinks:

Aye, and don't tell me, if you win, it won't change your life one bit - you'll be keeping your job stacking shelves at Netto three days a week. :tongue: Thought you might have bought the Rams and brought in ###### players for us, so's we stayed near the bottom ... oh ! :shout:
