Fev 32 worky 20

34 posts in this topic

Dont really know what to make of today but Hay has certainly got his work cut out

We played well in patches and the last two tries were great efforts but our ball retention was shocking all game, we looked really flat and went through the motions most of the game, showing our quality when required to pull away

Thought moore had a decent game and annakin was our best forward - this kid certainly doesnt take a backward step

Thought it was the best ive seen workington play for a few years at our place and we wont find it as easy as we did last year up there in the return fixture

All in all it was all rather flat both on the pitch and in the crowd

Summed up pritty well but I'm still not confident we will finish second unless AH can turn it round We need an organiser on the field we haven't had one all season and the second row running out wide cannot remember last time our second row broke a tackle Saying that it's another 3 points in the bag and credit to Workington I thought they played really well in attack and ran it in with a purpose

I thought Fev played as well as Workington let them play. They tackled hard and played some nice football.  Will Sharpe turned the game for me.  Couldn't understand what happened for Town's last try, it seemed the ref wanted the tap taken again, and then allowed the try. I thought he was very poor, in a game that didn't need much controlling.  Town deserve bigger (but not louder) support than they got today, they're a good side.  I and several other Fev fans applauded them off.

That's a fair take on the game, we need somebody to install some intensity into the players because at the moment I think that's where we are lacking. Although Moore played better,he scored a great try and had a hand in other try scoring opportunities,where he seems to let himself down is when moves are called he plays to the calls, where if he played what's in front of him I think we 'd see a different player but all that is down to confidence in taking control of the game.

town usually have a good away support, but a lot of fans were put off by the fans that attended the normanton game in the challenge cup at your stadium. It was a disgrace to rugby and something that dosent belong in our game. I'm not saying they have anything to do with fev at all, but that's the reason what put a lot of townies off.

Hopefully see a good few come up to derwent park where hopefully we can better today's efforts. Well played and good luck, fev are a team that deserve a shot at super league for your performances over the last few years.

I got gouged and had my eyelid turned inside out up at maryport playing amateur , nothing to do with a nearby pro side or putting me off going to workington . Normanton are closer to wakefield , there a amateur side that just used our ground , and i cant possibly see why it put anybody off

I thought that Workington are far better than their league position suggests. They were equal to us in most quarters. It was touch and go. Thank goodness for the individual touches that won us the game. Definitely room for improvement in the attacking process. but as been said it is three points. Glad Workington got the bonus point, they deserved it.

im just saying after speaking to a number of town fans that that's the reason why people didn't travel down.

I stopped visiting my auntie in High Wycombe for a while cos the toilets at Newport Pagnel services were abysmal.

well if you think that behaviour is acceptable and ok to make light of then that's your prerogative.

Think your missing the point , the point being it was nothing to do with the club or fans of featherstone rovers , and no , no one has said it is acceptable behaviour .

and I haven't for one second said it had anything to do with fev. And it's not the reason why I wasn't there, I was just pointing out that it was the reason why a good few we're put off by the trip.

many think we have a worse squad than last year but with vievers in charge he's getting everything out of our very small squad. And we seem a better unit with only 1 or 2 Wigan players rather than the likes of dudson and Hughes who don't give a ###### about town. See you in a couple of months at sunny derwent park.

We know about Annakin . He came up here on loan from Wakefield . Chiselled out of granite , really puts starch in a defence up the middle and makes his carries . Ideal loose forward material . Good signing for you , is SL squad standard .

we had Annakin on loan 2 years ago and were set to get him on a season long loan in pre season this year until he got injured. The lad gives 100% all the time. He will be a great player for you.

Well I'm going to stand up for the players after yesterday,how many people in work could cope with 5 or 6 new managers within a 12 month period and deal with alterations to work practices and still put their heart into the job. Yesterdays performance was patchy to say the least, but if they had no pride in what they do that game would have been lost. Now we've got Andy Hay in charge are people going to stop looking back at what we had and give this squad a proper chance to get on with playing for Featherstone Rovers and hopefully get us back on track.
