  1. Tyler Mellor & Fui were the pick of the bunch today - Tyler in my opinion is now playing in his best position, a player who always turns up and gives 110% - I would like to see him at DP next season. Fui was fantastic today, not only did he take up the ball strongly he was also instrumental in organising the town defence when haven attacked our line.
  2. I was there and it was definitely a point lost with all the possession we had in the 1st half practically on their line, we should have gone in at least 12 points up - the disallowed try was not forward, line ball at best. I don't like to criticise players but I can't agree that Penky had a good game - he threw out some poor passes several times and was responsible for the build up to their try when he lost the ball at the back of a town scrum. Why did we kick on the second tackle late in the second half when we were attacking their line?
  3. I wouldn't say that genuine concern from supporters about the current situation at the club is being NEGATIVE, more like negativity should be replaced by the word TRUTH or REALITY. So does this mean Thorman's comments are negative?
  4. And how many times have we showed solidarity and has it made any difference in the past few seasons - NO! How can a situation change over such a short period? Several weeks ago we had two healthy crowds at BP and a touch of optimism along with a professional, enthusiastic coach. Why have things gone down hill so fast? Who or what has allowed this decline to happen? There as got to be a reason why once again attendances and revenue will be reduced. I want to say plenty more but I can't be bothered like some Town players.
  5. How can any BOD / management allow this apathy and unprofessionalism take place and develope in this once proud club. WTRLFC need to wake up and smell the coffee and listen to what Chris Thorman is saying - he is totally professional and appears to care what is happening at DP. If Chris as walked who can blame him. Thats me finished I am staying away, first time ever until this mess is sorted out. Appointing an untried coach and mainly local players is not the way forward IMO. If the club as any ambition they should try and persuade Thorman to stay - offer him a 2 year contract - I think he will introduce professionalism, discipline and make the changes required on the playing front.
  6. Being realistic most of the players mentioned heading for the door are coming to the end of their careers so it is probably true IMO. Yet another rebuild job in prospect for the next couple of seasons and the merry go round starts again with rumour and counter rumour of which players will change the town blue for the haven choc/gold and vice versa. This is getting all too predictable and tiresome I would like a fresh start and a change in culture at the club e.g. be more professional both on and off the pitch. On the playing front the team should be built around our younger talented players such as Scholey, Dawson, Curwen, Maudling, etc.
  7. Brilliant idea based on it's a knockout rules where they are both perched on a log, knocking seven bells out of each other with sacks full of xxxxxx (leave to your imagination).
  8. We have hit rock bottom this weekend what with today's result and the so called new stadium, things can't get any worse or can they? UTT
  9. Why are people on here going on about locals, by that I mean W. Cumbria, can you name any who have really made a difference recently God knows plenty have been given chance. All the successful teams Town (the lancs cup winning team maybe the exception) have had have been a mixture of imports, travellers and talented locals. Try and fill the team with locals only and we will be competing with the likes of W. Wales and Coventry for the wooden spoon.
  10. Jamie Doran has previously stepped up.
  11. Silverfox, totally baffled by your post. I am not advocating repairing things and papering over the cracks at BP - my point is if the new stadium does not go ahead the town & reds will be left with 2 decaying stadia and what i would like to see happen (my opinion only) if they decide to pool their resources and develop one ground - the remaining 6 year lease on BP is an obvious consideration. Your experience at the Rec is different to mine - yes you are close to the action on the open terrace, but your vision is impaired if action is taking place in the corners especially at the Kells end. I am In total favour of a new stadium. UTT & the REDS.
  12. On Radio Cumbria he seemed pleased with the performance, especially in the second half where they played at a standard that he expects. Spoke very highly of Jamie Doran's performance. He's very much aware of the defensive weaknesses and was disappointed with 2 of their tries. Chris is a fantastic coach and we should try everything to keep him.
  13. I have supported both teams all my life and I have to say Borough Park provides the best match day experience and atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed today's game - you could feel the atmosphere ( even with the DP faithful strangely quiet) and hear every crunching tackle. I know people on here will disagree with me, but if it came down to developing only one ground if the new stadium falls through I would choose BP. I thought today's gate was a 1000+.
  14. Just out of interest groundhopper was this for a league cup tie back in the early sixties when Workington Reds entertained Coventry City, that's about the only time I remember the two teams meeting.
  15. It is only half way through the season and too early to predict end of season placings - too many variables: Injuries, DR players availability, players on holiday, loss of form, form momentum, 4 pointer games, unpredictable teams/ results, team confidence, etc. TOWN will finish in top 3 with this coach and providing there are no significant injuries.

    Why what do you know about Olly's injury, I got the impression from the radio that he went off with a head injury, which is now standard practice. Let's get behind the new coach who has stated that Saturday's performance was not acceptable - unfortunately a change in fortune may take some time. UTT.
  17. Forgot to say they also got the score wrong way around - we won 31-28 didn't we?
  18. Just read in today's star ' town had to name 3 players on the bench that were never going to take the field, with several players apparently downed tools in protest at departure of previous coach' - who are these players? Have I missed something?
  19. Does anyone know which independent candidates are backing the stadium?
  20. If you are not a board member, which I assume you are not, how do you know?
  21. Don't keep us in suspense WTRLFC, disclose it on here first 'WHO IS THE NEW COACH'? - the suspense is killing me.
  22. The whole culture of the club needs to change - for a start don't play players who don't train, stop players going on holiday during the season ( I don't care who it is) - can things like these not be written into players contracts? The club needs to be run as a semi-professional out fit and not amateurs, after all spectators are paying good, hard earned money to watch this lot. Didn't bother listening to the radio or checking the live result this afternoon, first time for ages. We are now in the last chance saloon for this season so I hope they appoint an ambitious, talented coach such has Chris Thorman or Richard Marshall - don't think Forster is the answer.
  23. According to some reports Richard Marshall has parted company with Halifax - the type of coach I would like at DP, young & ambitious.
  24. Leon deserves total respect for his efforts in his first coaching role. How many so called experienced coaches could have achieved what he did last season on a limited budget and more or less having to start again 1/3 of the way thro the season. If you read this all the best for the future.UTT.
  25. What? Totally baffled by your post!
