Don't rely overly on Hirst and Walmsley, they're both very much on and off players, neither has a good record of holding onto the ball and Walmsley really isn't that big, and Hirst is often taking the ball from a standing start instead of using his size on the bust. If kear couldn't get him going is Bastian going to get any more out of him now that he's 3 years older than he was when he arrived with us? I heard that Matty Dale was on his way to The Mount, any truth in it? Obviously you've got a great addition in George, full of beans and life, Moore was hitting his best again, but where is he going to play? You've got a great pair of halves in Kane and Finn, who's getting dropped, and will that player be happy to stay? It's great getting new players, but we forget that somebody has to go.

I don't think any of the Batley quartet figure are "key" signings. Cording, Nicholson and Uaisele are the marquee additions. Flanagan will be the interchange hooker with Ellis, but if any of the other Batley lads get on the field with any regularity, it will probably mean they are playing extremely well - none of them are filling an obvious gap, but they'll provide depth.

As far as I know Smeatons contract end at the end of October . Cannot see Fev renewing it to be honest until the injury is cleared up they didn't pay for the last operation

There is changes next season regarding the players as we all know JB bringing his own mates in and getting rid of what we have got Let's hope it works out time will tell. I think just a couple of new faces would of done as our league position has shown but obviously the BOD think different lets hope they haven't made a mistake

If the 2 players go to Batley as we are hearing I don't think the ones we have brought in are any better and will improve what we are letting go but I'm not the coach or the chairman and they won't want to fail

One thing is I want Fev to be the best but with some of the signings and talking to the Batley supporters You would think we have recruited badly

And how exactly will they afford the transfer fee?

 

Half the posters on there believe he's been released by Fev and will come 'cheap'

I don't think Fev will say no to Wakey they let Fax speak to him I have a feeling certain players are not in the new coaches plans

But they didn't let him go did they? He's 30ish,so unlikely get a long contract,and more importantly has his own business, so why would he go full time and 

 jeopardise that?

Think it was more of he didn't want to leave if the truth be known If Wakey do want him and its true don't think the new coach or BOD will stop him IMO looks like Moore is JB choice next year I hope I'm wrong

From what I have heard and read. Smeaton, Helliwell and Finn are staying with Bastion's blessing.

We currently have way over 30 contracted players. I'd be amazed if we retained a squad of that size.....

We'll see, but with briggs, kain, finn, heppy and moore in for the 2 half backs.... summats got to give....

That shouldn't matter should it the coach is the man who selects the players and JB wanted them so it will be up to him won't it

When you try and embarrass the chairman by saying you better be playing every week or else or wont honour contract i think it might get taken out of JB hands dont you? Like i said i will say no moore on the situation just watch this space ;)

We were told by the Batley fans that he thought he was better than everyone else but he isn't and they couldn't understand why we had got him when we had Finn Kain and Briggs

If what you say is true then I agree we don't want them type of players at Fev and get rid before the season starts each player should be picked on performance it isn't as though we are short

I can say pretty categorically that Gareth won't stay past the first few weeks of the season if he isn't playing - which I don't expect he will be given that Finn looks to be staying with you. He hasn't got the greatest track record in this respect. Mind you, if he signed for Bastian on the proviso that he would be your regular No.7, then I can see why might be a bit peeved.

To be honest tom id be surprised if any player was given such a guarantee on signing.

The days when David hobbs has more or less just his regular 17 and players could say and do what they want with little consequence have long past. Other good players are now there to replace those out of form, injured or just being daft!

A coach has to pick who he thinks is his best 17.... the rest will then know what they have to do to achieve that.

I wouldn't have thought any player is exempt from that.

That's a big part of the problem with Gareth, I think. He's indicated in the past (at both Halifax and Batley) that he feels he should be first choice wherever he goes, regardless of form/competition etc.
