Sorry, but there was no passion. We need more Kains  not imports who play there own little 1 yard move. Sorry but I paid £50 to see a unorganised team . Some one needs a good talking to or sack him. First time in 3 years lose or win I was gutted.

If we had more like Andy Kain it would get boring sat at the top all the time.

Mate said Briggsy had a great game for them today , another impatient impulse wrong decision as well ?

quiet   frst   half   but   in   the   second   he   ran   into   the   line   three   times   something   he   hasent   done   at   fev  for   acouple   of   seasons  he   scored   a  try   and   made   one .cooky   for   once   had   a   moderate   game   threw out   about   four   bad   passes   and   didnt   break   the   line .anthony   thakray  at  scrum   half  for   dewsbury  did   everything   a   top   ####  half   should   do  and   was   the   best   player   on   the   pitch   by   quite  a   way.

Trouble is Andy is having to do more of the creative work because we are lacking in that department, and we are missing him as an out and out stand off. But his bet display of the season was 3 week ago against Dewsbury when he took over the scrum half role half way through the first half. Seijka looks good as an individual player but he's not leading us around the park, and his distribution is too disjointed so far and will take time to click. Moore was just staring to look ok before he got injured, which shows how long it takes for the play makers to settle in.

6 hour round trip and half a tank of diesel to watch that utter garbage!! Everyone connected to our club should be ashamed of themselves with that today

From the players - we will call them players as they are clearly not a team a team anymore, its just a team of individuals attempting to play in a team, no fluidity, no togetherness, no one has got a clue how to run a ball in anymore in the pack, Harry Seijka is by far the worst scrum half ive seen at Fev in a fair while, even people are asking when Moore is fit!! How much time did he have to knock over a DG at 14 all and proceeded to do the worlds worst fake DG attempt and run and got tackled! Unacceptable from a supposed leader round the pitch!

I was skeptical when he was brought in and made my feelings clear, only to be rebuffed and told to give him a chance, yet we see that today from him and i feel i am having the last laugh unfortuneatly because he should be no where near a fev shirt again for me and shipped back to wakey reserves,

Crookes is another one who is stealing a wing shirt from Etu, Mendeika, Blackmore or even Hellewell, his loan cannot end soon enough either

Whats also worrying me is at 14 - 14 workington were as cool as a cucumber, yet we were like rabbits in the headlights trying to score off every break, resulting in numerous poor and dropped ball, it almost looked inevitable what would happen and look what happened

We are simply a mess, a rudderless ship at the moment, no leaders, no one standing up to be counted

The coaches - last week we got away with naming no specialised hooker on the bench and Ellis was blowing like a cart horse after 12 hours in the rice fields last week, so why does AH proceed with the same plan today, in the hot dry sun? Well that clearly bit us in the backside today as we were snookered when Ellis went off injured, Flanagan is clearly not in favour with AH which i dont know why as i quite like Flanagan, but he wouldve had a field day today in that second half running at those tired Workington forwards, so i suggest to AH - if you read this, Flanagan will have to play next week cos of Ellis head injury, but please revert to two hookers in the team thank you

The BOD - quite simply, we need some answers to the long term future and quick, are the money men in or are they out because we cant move on at this present time

The opposistion - Whilst Workington were well worthy in their victory today, i have never seen a team roll about as much with ''injuries'' as i have witnessed today, the stoppages for workington injuries mustve been in the double figures and its a shame because i dont think they need that in their game - you can see why they have got BP in nearly every game because they work so hard for one another, i cant believe thats only 4 victories for them this season

But lets be honest, with the wage budgets and calibre of players of both teams, workington shouldve been nowhere near us today, yet they were the only one team today who showed heart, courage, aggression and that bit of extra skill when required, you could argue we dominated the seond half, but the final result doesnt lie

Roll on NW crusaders next week, a team who appear to be playing as bad as us, surely we cant drop points to them

From a Workington pov we had 16 players one on the wing was our conditioner retired five years and we also had a young lad on the bench who'd never played at this level before. On top of that all our three props played big minutes one who must be nearly 20 stone our lads were dead on there feet. No gamesmanship just literally knackered and there for the taking if fev had been better hence several getting cramp!

What about the experienced 'pivot' / utility who, in my opinion struggled a little, at times, last year but could be devastating on his day and played his finest game against a former club of his, in a 'shock defeat' defeat that would be impossible reproduce now.

He was willing to fight for the cause for 2 more years, but decided against it because of what was on offer and who he'd be coached by. Why risk your spine any longer, when any minute you could be out on your culo?

Agree Andy, Jonny H would have played on had he felt wanted. Someone go talk to the lad. Finn, Heppy and Briggs, all class acts, shown the door and replaced with what? It's unbelievable

I miss tommy saxton. He always ran in with determination and was a wriggly swine to cop. Always used to offload aswell. Our team at current, seem to be asleep when it comes to picking off loose balls.

Try to imagine what will happen if all of our players just clicked together next week for the rest of the season. There would be a few decimations.

We can kiss Superleague goodbye. We've got a supposed squad full of stars but the only problem is we have no team players. Today was sickening to say the least. I can't remember the last time we played that bad. 4 years of brilliance and effort only for the big drop for when it matters. My mate supports Leeds Rhinos and he said to me that Fev will never get to Superleague because of two reasons; Sacking Daryl Powell and trying to buy your way in, throwing money at players. Look at Salford, they have all that money and I don't see them doing anything.

 

Our squad gradually got weaker when the money men came in and the best coach went out. Fans are not to blame, there was a superb turn out today from Fev only to have their eyes bombarded with a right shower of ######. One man rugby WILL NEVER WORK and passing ball about with 10 minutes to go is a bit too late. Never to this day has a forward made a good coach but I suppose we will see in the long run (doubt it though we seem to be getting worse).

 

No passion, no aggression and no team spirit today. Nothing more to say.

Darryls time was up at fev he did ok for us but we won 1 trophy out of 6 with by far the biggest playing budget in the league, not good enough. Not only that Darryl is now where he want to be his beloved Cas the team he believed in as a boy, So your mate the Rhinos fan says we will never make super league well we better pack up now then because those plastic rhinos fans know it all dont they

i agree with what the board are trying to do, ie looking to the near future. easing some of the older end out and bringing younger talent in to carry us through to superleague. but the trouble is we are not replacing with quality atm. it all looks shambolic to me. lets stop this mad dash to sign everybody available, and look at where we are weak and sign top quality in those positions. having seen todays press release i am a little more hopeful. hold on, it's going to be bumpy. but i still love this club UTR

Tommy was great for Fev, but it was the choice of the previous coach to let him go, same with Finn, and the club hold their hands up to say they were wrong to allow him to do this. But the wingers aren't the problem,everyone who has worn the shirt this season has shown great finishing prowess.

It wasn't getting rid of a winger that was the big mistake, though Tommy was a legend; The weak spot is at half back marshalling the troops around; So the biggest mistake was letting Finn go; Our back line was hitting the straps even before Blackmore came along, though this is a fantastic signing; Demoting Mendeika to sub???? What is this all about?

I think Andy Hay wanted to have a look at him at stand off last week, but it was too tight to risk it near the end. Yesterday he had no choice after the injuries to Ellis and Cording. I think the general consensus was he passed his test with flying colours.

One thing I'll say to try and add a bit of balance having watched the DVD. Both here and on the Facebook page there was a lot of strong criticism of Siejka. He certainly did some things wrong, notably his goalkicking and I think it was him who missed a bad tackle leading to Workington's second try. But it's also worth pointing out he created three tries (one of which was disallowed) with superbly-timed passes, also created another disallowed try with a kick through, kicked a cracking 40-20 which led to a try on the next set of six, and was a bit unlucky with a chip over the top in the second half.

 

Not saying for one moment he's the answer to our problems at 7 and we've only seen him for a couple of games but I think some of the criticism was out of proportion especially in comparison to others. Not going to single people out on here but watch the DVD and a couple of mental errors by some of the more established players in the team caught us out badly.
