Sheffield predictions

Its quite easy to be ante-Fev at the moment but remember we have had to play Warrington, Leeds, Huddersfield, Hull Salford and Wigan for a while now...so I think we are playing fire with fire at the moment and quite legally;

 

Which implies some form of illegality somewhere along the way by someone.

I have to say that no one is suggesting Featherstone have entered into anything illegal or even against the spirit of the game. What some supporters are doing is simply pointing out the irony of your club's DR agreement after the rather challenging comments made by some of your contributors on this forum regarding the issue.

The issue has gone from selling the souls of our club to being perfectly acceptable as long as the ends justify the means, and all at about 5.00pm on Sunday afternoon!

The club decided it NOT the supporters; My post though was tongue in cheek; We have now decided to put out our strongest side in the guise of Wakefield lol;

Hardly abuse for goodness sake,and for the record i do not condone abusing anyone who steps out on a rugby field,player or official.

Players are keen enough to take the adulation when they play well,as is their right,so should be able to shoulder the critisism when they play poorly, as is the paying spectator's right.

Please show me where i have 'abused' any player,if indeed that is what you are implying.

That comment wasn't aimed at you personally. As I understand it at Barrow some players were subject to some pretty disgraceful abuse.

Which WAS my point about supporters from your club having a go at supporters from other clubs. None of those supporters were a part of any club's decision to take part in DR. However this did not stop other supporters having a go.

If that was the case then yes it was discraceful.

I have watched some pretty dreadful teams up at the Mount in 34 years of watching Batley,and have experienced some torrid,frustrating and abysmal times watching my team home and away....,but have never stooped to downright abuse of the players or club officials in public.

I dont believe the players we have are deliberately 'not trying' ,its just that we have been spoilt so much in the last 5 or so years with the teams and success we have had that some of the 'recent' supporters are not used to the downturn in performances.

Stave off relegation this year and i will be very happy.

seems to more going than whats turning up to even be looked at. same old mushroom syndrome at the moment, keep us in the dark and feed us bullsh**. all these players who were going to be great for us this season couldent wait to get away and even go down a step too sends me bad signals for the next few weeks. cant blame anyone other than ourselves and as for fev good luck to them,good marketing,good sponsers,great team, hell if we could have 3 a their players the season would turn round for us but we aint got no ££££ so lets blame the fans for not turning up rather than lack of been able to attract fans, supporters need to see a decent name or two to bring in more supporters, but onwards and upwards same old same, the few good players we have will be off to better things anyways before long . :(:focus:

which players have left this season? if you mean dr players, they belong to Huddersfield and not us and so at the end of the day if they want to loan them out to other clubs that is up to them and nowt we can do about it and the big question is ARE they any better than what we have got some on here will argue that they are. If you mean Kyle Trout he was only on loan on a week to week basis and Trinity recalled him due to going into a DR partnership with Fev, now this is the bit i don't understand either is why Trout wasn't allowed to play for us anymore due to wakeys/fevs DR and Sheffield have one of the players that we had on DR on loan with them from Hudds,unless part of the DR agreement between Wak and Fev stipulate that Wakey can't loan any players to championship sides

 i dident rate most a the dr guys anyways but we were told thats it we cant bring in anyone else so make do and mend, but am sure whoevers in charge at huddersfield giants dident just tell these lads to go elsewere they must have asked to go elsewere for some reason.i aint too fussed about the dr job but if we cant have a team of our own to jell then what else can be done, other clubs keep getting decent signings so what are we doing so wrong, look at donny again today with steve snitch signing.. i really hope we turn things round but cant see how or were its going to come from.. god knows what will happen next season as even more players drift away.

But you make so many assumptions. Actually, I hold a contrary view to you, and suspect that Huddersfield do put their players where they want them. I am not sure the players have very much say in it all. The club cannot win here. Supporters complain when we use DR players, but when we don't they complain too.

 

It was said on here very recently that Anderson keeps sending DR's to the club, but JK doesn't choose them in favour of those who are signed to the club! Isn't that what we all wanted? We complain that we have not got a settled side,but if JK chooses the different DR players then it will never be settled. And yes, I know the impression given at the start of the season was that we would augment our squad with the same five or six DR players, but of course that was never going to happen in reality as they were given first team opportunities. 

 

How do you know players will drift away at the end of the season? Why do you care as you reckon only a half dozen are good enough for us anyway.

 

In our situation, I believe the best thing we can hope for is a turn around in fortunes and form, and to retain confidence in a coaching team and club leaders who have managed to do a decent job up to now.

I don't think that's a universally held view. I believe I read somewhere that someone wouldn't have him inthe under 10's. On the contrary, l believe he would make quite an impact with them!

Been going well? The worst forward in the team by far - may as well have had a tub of lard on pitch playing 10 - the tub of lard would probably make more metres and offloads as well- wasted his chance at us if gone back to Batley- no doubt will score a hattrick at the mount in a few weeks now

i can tell you i do care,anyone who aint too fussed just dont go to the match anymore and i know plenty who are staying away with the type a rugby were playing,i only have opinions same as anyone else but dont try telling me the likes a patto and nicco are good enough for us.even brennon had a blinder boxing day and smashed a few in tackles and looked like he were gonna be good for us, but then just seems like a smaller hirst who stops himself and needs jumpleads on. as for the half a dozen they are the ones who do all the hard graft while some a the others are thinking were there going on hols or what hairsyle to have for next week. some a the players that have come in are papola and dont rty telling me any different, go up park on a saturday afternoon and see what a shirt means to a player who wants it week after rather than a few we have who know nobody else can get that shirt as their aint nobody to fill it, if you this team can turn things all well and good but while most teams build what they have in the off season am just hoping the players we do have like rowie.baz.greenwood,chandler,applegarth,breth.jd.blakey, black.gledhill, dont move on due to us maybe ending up at bottom of the pile, i hope your right about turning things round as am sure behind the scenes plenty is going on to try get us on track again. :bb:

In response, my post was an attempt at humour, perhaps misguided. it was an attempt to point out how ridiculous the under ten post was. I have made my thoughts perfectly clear about KH on here before. He was a highly effective prop for us, especially coming off the bench against a tiring defence. I would have no complaints him being back with us.

all this negativety about keegan hirst is uncalled for ive not missed a match this season and all ive seen him do is bust a gut for the team has no one seen his effort in defence ill get slated for this but for me hes been one of our best forwards ( and yes i have played the game and coached at a reasonable level with success before you say i know nowt about the game)

Fans are commenting on what they are seeing every week its up to the players to improve they must know the product served this season is poor. Too many players are underperforming or simply not good enough . The fans who still come are the hardcore 500 and believe me we want success. players need to improve cut out the mistakes and add flair to a basic game plan maybe then they may shock a team or two even Sheffield maybe even win in the sun .

Everyone wants success!! Players as well. And I'm sure they would be the first to hold there hands up and say its not good! But it does come down to confidence. If it was as simple as to just say to yourself god I'm playing sh## but next week I'm not going to drop a ball, and going to score 2 try's then we would be top of the league!! Think of last year we got to grand final but half way through season when we were loosing to everyone, why?? Confidence! They got it back and didn't look back. If we can get 2 or 3 wins on the bounce I'm sure we will start to see a different team out there. But they need us the fans on there side to stand any chance of getting it..
