    Totally agree, and yes our current situation is made much worse with the Rams not propping us up, lol. Oh dear, that doesn’t sound good. This is one of the major frustrations of supporting a second tier club, isn’t it? Our favourite and beloved players go onto bigger and better things, it’s bittersweet.

    I'm not particularly pro-Diskin, no, I think he's got a lot to prove (and don't be fooled that the BoD don't know this either). But I'm not gonna shout for his head when we don't beat Toronto or Toulouse. I was extremely frustrated after the Bradford game, but I was at the Halifax game and saw in the last 60 minutes what we are capable of, and if it wasn't for a very bad bounce that forced Scotty into an uncharacteristic error, we might have beaten them. There have been definite signs of improvement in the last few weeks, anyone that says there hasn't has their anti-Diskin blinkers on. We just need to be more consistent now, make the good performance last 70-80 minutes, not 30-40, stop giving away silly penalties and get a bit of confidence back, both on the pitch and in the stands. I still think we are better than Rochdale, haven't seen Swinton play yet and one or two Sunday afternoons, things might go well for us and we turn one of the big boys over, who knows? Like I said, we are all entitled to our opinions, but the ad nauseam repetition of negative comments from some posters is staggering. I don't mean you, by the way.

    Nobody knows anything, that's the point. Lately, we have been having the opinion rammed down our throats by 'certain folk' that we are definitely going down and the world will end. Nobody knows that will happen, either. Some of us are more optimistic than others, that's all, and we are all perfectly entitled to our own opinions and to express those opinions.

    No worries. We won’t go down, couple of wins and everything will look very different. We’ve got a giant killing in us this season, I can feel it!

    I knew someone would say this. It’s obviously meant to be a clear sign that the board are confident that we won’t go down, nobody will get their money back. Everyone is being so overly dramatic at the moment, everyone just needs to calm down a bit. And why start a new thread, why not just reply directly to Kevin?
  7. Exactly what I was thinking. And Sam Wood got 2nd place in forum MoM against Sheffield. How does that work??
  8. Fair enough and a reply like yours above would have been much more appropriate. No need for such a rude response, that actually does reflect badly on us as supporters And for what it’s worth, I read Robert’s message as more of a ‘keep your heads up, things have been worse’ rather than a direct criticism. He’s got a soft spot for the Bulldogs and some of its fans.
  9. This. I’m not one to call for the coach’s head, I understand the stance on giving it time, not sacking coaches etc etc, but even I’m getting fed up now. To be honest, we aren’t far off in terms of wins v losses than I thought we would be at this point in the season but the performances have been awful in the main. I just can’t see any evidence of a cohesive gameplan, and the list of players not even making the squad is just incomprehensible. Why is Wardy not getting a game half the time? Where is Jouffret? Chopping and changing the team just isn’t working. Brambani shouldn’t be getting a game at the moment IMO, he’s been poor, he should be the one marshalling the troops, but again that may be down the the gameplan, or lack of. Bradford were very beatable yesterday, shame we didn’t take advantage. We are really going to have to rely on beating Rochdale and Swinton twice to survive, I think.
  10. A bog standard Product or Brand Manager will be on that, five years experience at senior management level for 45k, they’re in cloud cuckoo land.
  11. I really don’t think you’re in any position to correct anyone’s spelling. And are you aware that you come across as rather immature? Your we-beat-you-so-ner-ner posts are becoming a bit boring now.
  12. Second attempt and still left a spelling mistake.
  13. Did anyone buy a ticket for the half time draw? Prize remains unclaimed, ticket number 8986
  14. Yep, they definitely know how to slow the game down, don’t they? Tough game today against a pumped up, grubby side but should have done better. Agree with everything that has already been said. Need to up our game for Fev next week!
  15. I’ve just broken into the top 10 purely by renewing my home insurance through Go Compare via Easyfundraising. £13 donation with very little effort from me. I’m getting into the habit now of checking before I buy.
  16. I also only used my season ticket at Rams once, also for Toronto game. Probably won’t bother this season
