Have to disagree its good to see the squad announced on the website on a Friday evening.

I too like to see the squad announced, but people have to learn to accept that things can change in the matter of 5 minutes

Winning streaks do have to end some time..and like winning the league has to end some time also; You looked a class act last week and though it was an exciting game Fev looked to be hanging on throughout the match; Just hope the game befits our standards and hopefully we can reverse the score;

I was disappointed last week but more because we appeared to play to a system that. ...

- had overcomplicated moves that we didn't appear to have practiced to a point where everyone knew who was doing what, resulting in us passing to no one or the wrong person.

- Those same moves were sometimes on the 2nd tackle, so we hadn't tied the defence in at all.

- 3 times we had a scrum in our 20 m, their full back in the line and nobody at home deep. Each time we did the same drive by Ian Hardman and never thought about a deep kick for a chase which would either give us the ball or have their forwards running back 70 m to start again. Leigh, clearly never thought we might do something different, we play to a system,^it doesn't vary. The object of the game is to score points, admittedly using a plan but but keep the opposition guessing.

One kick through and they'll think twice where to stand at the next scrum.

- It was also interesting to note that one Leigh fan realised how good Andy Bostock is in our team.... Shame and in my opinion,totally nuts he can only get in our 17 because of injury. Then again, I'm not a coach but he's worth a place as he wears out defences and is great in defence.

Looks like we will have to get Chisholm back in the team then. Depending on Etu injury the club should do what any other club would do and bring there most experienced winger back from his loan We will now see if there is any truth that Saxton is not wanted at Fev because if he is he will be training at Fev next week and in until Etu recovers

Good luck today to the team no matter who runs out give 100% and we might just win it that's all we can ask for

It was defensive errors that cost Fev the game last week, nothing to do with the plays. Sharp and Keegan had good games with the ball, but Will's attempted tackle on Kay in th first minute was poor and led to their opening try, and Keegan should have collared Haggerty when he forced his way over. Brierley's 2nd & 3rd tries could also be attributed to missed tackles, but the player's brilliance also played a part.

Wasn't good today but accept Leigh are a better side this season and better than us If things change at the club then the players may get better but at the moment there not as good. Well done Leigh you played well today and were the best team hope we can catch you up but don't think we will

we make them look better than they are. They looked ordinary for long periods, with the amount of possession we had in the first half we should of been out of sight. We had no idea how ti break them down.

no a good win for an ordinary team.

on another note if our supporters had used the foul language that the Leigh supporters used all afternoon there would have been hell on.

We were poor in the second half. Thought we looked very disorganised in both attack and defence today which may well have been due to dropping Moore. We certainly didn't have anyone to take us round the field today.

The most disturbing point though was the comments of Bastian after the game while he was right that our decision making was poor today he seemed to miss the fact that we didn't seem to have a clue what we were doing. Also he commented a bout pick getting 10 minutes at the end, in the modern game you can't have a forward only playing 10 minutes in a game, if he is good enought to play you have got to give him a good stint to spell the other forwards.

We bombed quite a few chances in the first half. Leigh were the better team, team being the operative word. We didn't look like a team and had very few ideas. We lacked a general and looked very ordinary. Lets hope we don't slide even further but Sheffield away next week doesn't look good. We need a complete overall both in attack and defence.

just been reading the meltdown on facebook all blaming bastion and calling for his head I must say I wont be sorry to see him go but our demise falls fairly and squarely on whoever decided to get shut of the best coach in both competitions full stop!

I didn't expect that today, especially after the tonsillitis that has being going round the club struck again during the week. Your pack was battered and out of steam in the first half, our bench carried on punishing you just as you have done to us many times in recent years.

Keep yer peckers up, top 2 is all that matters this year and imo it will be you or fax or ourselves taking those spots

Todays performance was sickening.Looking at the players and I could tell they didn't want to be there. All of our forwards were knackered puffing like nothing right. Absolutely no team spirit today, I never stopped trying to encourage them, totally lost my voice. Disappointed with fans turning around and saying that they aren't going next week because of it. We must have some of the most miserable fans in the world, always got to win other wise we'll flit to another team.... shocking. John Bastian what can I say, you've had your chance every play was one man and there is absolutely NO POINT in passing down the line before drawing a man. Pass for sake of passing is almost as worse as one man rugby. Will Sharp gets suckered in too much, his attacking game is brilliant but his defence needs work.

 

I would have put our second team out today, they work better together, we had no clue. If we play like we all know we can play, then we will be unbeatable.

 

What is wrong?

Oh and another thing, isn't it funny how 4 years on the trott we win league, get nothing and then as soon as we get rid of best coach we've had in years and start playing sh*te, that there is money up for grabs to 1st and 2nd in league.

 

We won't come second at this rate.
