rumour about next season

203 posts in this topic

Well said. 

 

Do the people slagging the club off on here appreciate the time & effort the UNPAID volunteers put in to keep the club running - whether that be working behind the bar, in the office, on the turnstilles or in the community etc.  The people whinging about the way the club is run need to step up & offer their services & then they can put their ideas forward.

 

Steveo the legend - a vote would be nice but would people vote with their hearts rather than their heads?  Can we survive without the Rhinos money?  Of course Rhinos have used us just as if the roles were reversed we'd use them - they're running a business at the end of the day

 

Long standing 'supporters' saying they arent coming back next year - I dont believe that you dont care about the club anymore, to me if you are a true supporter you will always care?  We need every supporter & every penny we can get to keep this club running.

 

I personally support Hunslet Hawks & want to see our great name continue for the next 100+ years - if that means we have to associate ourselves with the Rhinos for a short time then so be it - I think people need to look at the bigger picture. Would people rather that Hunslet dissapeared all together?

Like i said in my post earlier , people have a choice , would you keep going to a restaurant that kept serving up rubbish meals , no you would'nt and thats how some fans see it............

Your indeed right Rick, people do have a choice and its there prerogative to make that choice, and to me the options are simple, (a) stick with your club, support it both financially and in your attendance, OR (b)don't.

People need to ask themselves this. If were in the top 8 which is where we could and should be would they be on here complaining about Rhinos and Hist. I very much doubt it. In my opinion we have been let down by poor coaching. Barry Eaton and puppet Wainhouse should have been shown the door a long time ago. Nobody dislikes Rhinos more than me but I know full well that the link up his been vital from a financial point of view.

We are still paying off our debts but by 2016 it will be all payed off and we will be in a really strong position. A lot of other clubs will go bust paying out silly money to stay up next season when 5 go down. For example one of our targets for next season is now staying put as he is getting a 12k contract plus his wage.I dont even rate him. But how do people think we can compete with that.

To say that Hissa is run for peoples ego trips is disgraceful. Do we see people strutting about I dont think so. What we see is people working tirelessly unpaid to take the club forward only to be unfarly slagged off. I will put my hands up and admit I was always sceptical about the Johnson family. How wrong could I be the work that family does is magnificent. I trust in them all the club will die before Rhinos take us over.

Come rain or shine I wll be there next season.

I sincerely hope that you all are.

 

 

Great post Cardigan.

 

People on here should be praising Hist for all their great work since taking over our club.

I remember before Hist took over, coming down to buy a season ticket from the ground and the Hunslet shop was  shut.

I think it took me three times to actually get one, as no-one in , or be back in an hour sign on the door.

 

 Hist have done more in a year, regarding i.e. promoting the club etc, than the club did in it's history.

 

The link up with Leeds a good idea too as we sadly don't as a club, have the money to compete with the other teams in our league.

If we had say D/R  with Bradford , we would have had a lot less talented players from them, so if you have to dual reg with some one as we do, we might as well D/R with the best team available to us. Just like Swinton did with Warrington. And if we did not D/R with Leeds another club will.

 

The only downside being our coach , not good enough. He has to take most of the blame. Team selection, no moves on the pitch apart from take it straight up the middle.

Strange that being though as he was such a talented and clever player himself in his day.

 

So again lets just all support the club, instead of trying to bring it down

Yawn..... I am getting so bored of coming on here and listening to people going on about Rhinos and North of the River. Have we copied this saying from Hull or something?

I'm not a fan of Rhinos, however if it wasn't for the players who have joined us we would be in a bigger embarrassing place than we already are.

I have been to almost every game this season and do you think Hunslet can stand on their own two feet. No. Keighley, Barrow and Dewsbury of all places only had a handful of fans there and we only get 400 at home games. It's laughable. All this " lets go on our own" rubbish, is nothing more than a bunch of people who want this club to be a top Championship 1 club. So they can have there weekly beer session, guaranteed win and home for Sunday lunch all happy.

I don't want this for the club, I want to be in the top 4 of the Championship and whatever it takes to get there. This side is good enough to do that but do lack a game plan. We don't use out outside backs and don't offer opportunities for the full back to do any breaks. All this forwards game is depressing to watch. Especially as they knock on at tackle two most times in our 30m.

We are all entitled to an opinion but being a good Championship 1 side is just not acceptable for this club. In two or three years time this will be a top club with a dozen or so Rhinos academy players taking positions. So start to accept it, or start following Hunslwt Warriors as its the only way this place will survive.

POST OF THE SEASON. I've followed Huns for over 30 years and I accept the situation. My dad does and he has been a supporter since the 50s

So because I'm not willing to sit back and watch leeds ruin my club I'm not a true fan?? Some of you need to take your blinkers off and look whats happening, that was no mistake what got said at headingley. The only mistake was that the plan got announced earlier than it should. The hetheringtons have history.....just ask Sheffield, gateshead or bramley. Weve managed without them and there's no reason why we wont in the future.

Bad lucks part and parcel of the any game Steve , you just get on with it and we still had a good enough squad to get out of the bottom 2 , ............people have come on here saying were bottom and we'd have been in a worse state if Leeds had'nt been with us , how worse can you get than bottom , did'nt know you could get lower than bottom...................

rick, pick me a team from the current squad without any rhinos that could win 1 game in this div.We are where we are because a/ the rhinos worst injuries in 50 years and b/ Grimmer has been out nearly all the season. Who would you sooner see at centre Keinhorst or Clayton ?

I don't pretend to know all the ins and outs of the arguments about the club but all I know is no matter

what I will still drive 70 miles to every home game next season. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions

about DR and other issues but despite the dross I have had to watch at times over the years I would never say and

have never even thought about withdrawing my support for the club. I think everyone involved with HIST deserves

our support and should be thanked by supporters who can't or don't want to take on the same responsibilities.

 

Thanks should also go to the volunteers who keep the club going so supporters like myself who don't help

out but just pay through the turnstiles can still come and watch our great club. God knows there are few

enough of us without falling out amongst ourselves and I for would never support another team so the priority

as far as I am concerned is to keep the club going at whatever cost.

Results mirror the same as last season. We have won the same competitive matches as we did last season bar barrow as we didn't play them in 2012.

Eaton as a coach is not capable of beating any establish championship club, we can only beat the promoted teams at home & York. Luckily we have the next 2 games to get wins, but it looks unlikely 6 points will be enough. That's if we win the games.

We'll never know Steve because we've never put a Hunslet team out , but these players should'nt have been signed on in the 1st place if there not gunna be picked , most people have heard what happened with Eaton and a certain player , so somethings wrong in the dressing room , and your choice of players still as me stumpt (Barnett) i would'nt pay him in buttons.............Keinhorst or Clayton were still bottom...........

I said on here that half of Eatons wages were payed by Hunslet and the other half by the RFL and i was corrected that Hunslet pay all his wages , if thats the case and with another year of his contract to run , that'll cost Hunslet to get rid , yes i believe that he is doing a good job in the community but the fans want to see his better work done on the pitch , which is'nt happening , only HIST can answer this matter........??????????????????????

do you ever get bored of moaning? Just as an example of the money other clubs are spending, Simon brown is rumoured to be on 15k a year + match terms, money like that buys you quality well above what we have yet we are just behind them and had we had a few lucky breaks we'd be well ahead of them. The only game I can recall coming away from thinking it was poor coaching was swinton away. I'd love to here some detailed examples of why you think the coach is so poor? Saying things like 'we only did 5 drives and a kick' so he must be poor isn't looking at the full picture; when playing with Helliwell and Ansel as your ball players keeping things very simple is the smartest game plan, asking players who simply don't have the skill to do anything fancy would just see the ball getting lost & the team getting smashed, keeping things simple has allowed the team to stay in the game & pick up bonus points and be in with a chance of picking up a win.
