I'm sure we'll get a considered approach Robin from the club. In a way we've become a victim of our own success in that we set the standards for others to follow, and they have. The top teams have sussed us and we need to change things whether it be the fine tuning or greater adjustment you mention or somewhere in between. We trounced Sheffield in last years final but they beat us this year which begs the question... have they improved out of sight or have we gone backwards at an alarming rate? Maybe it's neither. More often than not cup finals will be keenly fought and the form book count for very little. Lots of factors to take into consideration in my opinion in order to come up with the right answers.
Quite right matt. It may be only fine tuning that's needed. It may need greater adjustment. That's why I wouldn't want to see an over reaction but a considered approach. Like OR has just posted, they'll sort it, not you or I.
I do agree that the difference between total dominance and underachievement is very narrow in our case. One try in two matches and we would have done the treble!!!!
Overall though I still think its been a great season which could and maybe should have been even better with a bit of luck. If that pass to Johnny Grayshon sticks in the NR Cup for instance or the pass to Tommy yesterday hadn't been ruled forward. It's a fine line between success and failure. They'll get it right.
