      Am i the only person who didn`t enjoy the style of rugby the last couple of years? Maybe not if the attendances are a reflection of appreciation.

While no one likes whats happened and i do feel for Darren,but ive heard a lot of talk about his man management skills with the players,weather this is true or not i don't really know but if it is has this been done so that we can retain players , and also bring new players in that maybe don't want to play under Darren?

As it has been said a lot of contract negotiations would have been left to see which league we ended up in and with this coming so soon after the game...could these points be the reason ?

The average gate at CP is over 1000 and is 5th highest behind Fev, Fax, Leigh & Sheffield. Barrow are only 4 per game behind Sheffield.

And Sheffield's gates appear to be grossly exaggerated. Whenever they're on TV there looks to be about 200 there !

I agree with drewjak, heard on a number of occasions that there was issues with player/coach relationships. Not knocking Holty there i think hes done a great job managed to get us promoted and then keep us in the league, but i cant help looking at the teams that came up with us and think that we have perhaps underachieved. When the season started with the team we had i honestly thought playoffs would have been the aim. IMO we are a lot better than a 3rd from bottom championship team, and maybe thats why the BOD have made the decision, maybe they want somebody who can get the most out of this team especially with the importance of next season with the restructure coming in 2015.

I know this doesn't matter much as every clubs needs the away fans revenue but.........if you calculated home support only we'd be higher up that list, its our geographical isolation that counts against us.

 

We should get Murphs to look at raising the support on all levels as part of his comm manager role, here an idea Pete.

 

Could we get a combo ticket with Dalton Zoo / Beatrix Potter Museum / a.n. other local-ish tourist attractions  & Dozen good Restaurants / Bar meals pubs etc, It would be a great family day out for locals as well as targeting every clubs away fan as in on game day you use/visit 1 Tourist attraction & 1, Pub / Restaurant & attend BRLFC and qualify for 20% off your final bill or entrance fee.

 

Have all venues/attractions equally sharing's all production/running costs & hopefully all share an up turn in business. 

 

Lots of away fans visit the Lakes &/or stop off in Ulverston for refreshments on route buy / spend in different attractions / pubs etc Sell (the concept) this booklet to several targeted establishments with pull out discounted tabs & you channel visitors to these selected venues, heck add several Hotel / B&Bs for visitors and we all win :)

 

Just a thought

The Evening Mail reads of the potential coaches/ex super league players that have applied for the Barrow Raiders Coach position.  I hope we can afford the new coach and pay off the old coach/money into the floodlight scheme together with the salary cap required to put a competitive team on the pitch for 2014 given the recent financial problems the club had/hold ?  :download:

Im sure the BOD, whom I have every faith in, will be taking evrything into consideration Neil. They have managed to keep the club afloat so far.

First of all I would like to wish Darren and his family all the best for the future.

There have been many names mentioned for the new coach but if Darren had not enough experience then surely Broadbent or

Sice would also lack experience. The BARLA coach has also been mentioned. He has been there before and did not achieve

much. My choice would be Gary Chambers the Swinton coach. He is one of the best forwards to come out of Cumbria since the

Gorley brothers. His playing career was cut short by injury, but he has experience at coaching at Warrington under one of the best coaches in the world. He has done a good job at Swinton and although there were a lot of derisive remarks no

rules were broken. I think he would do a good job and is my number 1 choice followed by Gary Charlton keeping it local.

What are people's thoughts on a player coach ?

My thoughts are that it doesn't really work but if it was a Jamie Peacock or Lee Briers with Acky and Deano supporting I might change my mind .

That might also be the value for money route too-2 birds with one stone.

According to the statement there are candidates with Superleague experience, if that means they have played at that level but not coached then Broady has that experience plus he has a good local knowledge.

If it means they have coached at that level then it could mean Ian Millward. I can't say I rate him though. Shaun McRae is going back to Oz so it can't be him.

Thoughts anyone?

I think we have to get a certain local coach interested. If it means paying a little extra, that would be spent in travel and accommodation for an out of town coach, it's worth it. As for Mr Penrith Raider I completely disagree with his comments regards Cresta and IMO the club was much stronger under his coaching and leadership. If I remember we only had 4 signed players when he joined and when he left we had a reserve team and youth structure, some very strong signings and he left a league winning squad.

 

People forget its all about having structure and strength in your management.

Paul Cullen is available and has some links from his time up the coast.

If its someone local then that leaves Broady.

The Gardners?

Anyone else?

He'd do for me. But with him being in Oz I wonder if he has thrown his hat into the ring?
