I would like them both at Fev we were told that we would have a big squad this year JB said 32 players was about right for the long season looks like it was too many now What annoys me about it all is that although we look like we are trying to get a young squad ready for next season this season is probably more important than the last 4 financially I just hope it doesn't go wrong with releasing senior players and ones that wanted to play in a Fev shirt this year

I was referring to Peter Fox: He got sacked after the Wembley defeat in 1974 because fans were moaning about Mel Mason being left out. Then when he left in the early 90's a major factor was the fans on the terraces trying to pick the team, mainly over his selection of Jeff Grayshon who was approaching 40 at the time. I have a feeling that one or two fans favourites won't be automatic choices under John Bastian, but it has been proved that the best coaches often make unpopular decisions which turn out to be justified.

Steve, I think you'll find that Peter Fox resigned in 1974 to take up the job at Wakefield. He definitely wasn't sacked.

Best wishes to Tommy who has been a great servant for the club. Someone said his best years are behind him, he's 30 years of age, I'd say he's still got a couple left. I know of Tommy a little bit, he is a quiet unassuming lad, likes a beer and is very likeable, he is a bloke who is incredibly shy which totally contrasts his aggression on the field.

It is a move that was going to happen a few months ago and it may end up being permanent, he's as good, if not better than Rettie, Someone said he'll fill in for Worrincey but I'm sure they play on different wings.

I'll always remember Tommy steaming down the left wing, chuntering to himself whilst outpacing Jonny Woodendick in the Grand Final of '11'.

His Try to level the scores against Wigan comes to mind but most of all, his total and utter commitment and ultimate ecstasy on that glorious Saturday almost two years ago now, when he towed his tripe out for Rovers to beat his beloved home town team.

Always first to training and last to leave, he was an invaluable signing ( bought to replace Jon Whittle), a great club man and is a gent. I for one, hope to that we once again see him in a Rovers shirt.

Great servant for the club, all the best for the next month and the rest of his carear and would not be unhappy to see Tommy in a Fev shirt again in the future.

Terry, The memory can play tricks over 40 years, but in that case the reason he moved on was still the same: Fans on the terraces trying to pick the team for him.

I remember you telling us at the back end of last season Andrew that Fax were after him. When our Joe lived over that way all his school mates used to say that they thought that Tommy was our best player, and I sincerely hope they get to appreciate him as much as we did. I think he will cover for Worrincey, 'cos he'll be out a while longer, but probably on the other wing. Heaton was there for them last Sunday, but had to move back to centre when Danny Cowling got injured. If Cowling is out for a few weeks, they'll be light in the threequarters and will definitely need Tommy.

All the best wishes for such a wonderful servant to the club.

Never mind we got rid of best scrum half in championship and now one of the best wingers looks like the pre season rumours were actually true Never no it might be Kain next

Got a feeling Tommy won't be the only regular of the DP era to be loaned out, we'll see.

 I agree. He was up with the play and dictated moves. His kicking was first class. The commentator said Cas got him for nothing- Is that right?

According to the Halifax forum Tommy was their best player today,a few having digs about Ben Kaye and even more wanting Harrison sacked.

MOM by a country mile today. Maybe not the quickest on the pitch but came in for the ball numerous times and is still as slippery and has a great offload game. I would love to see him in a batley shirt.

Tommy can play full back too but you won't see that particular Featherstone loanee in the Batley Full Back Shirt, nudge, nudge, wink,wink.

Lets just say you can only beg to stay at the club for so long and offer to pay in the U20's for however long it takes before you realise you are being forced out

 

'No hard feelings' is the probable polar opposite

Perhaps if he'd offered to get on the pitch with them rather than spectate he'd have still been with us. :lol:;)

 

Seriously, sad to see him go and I wish him well. We have other good wingers at the club however, and we move on.
