  1. A loss to a side which, at least on paper, we are better than. Those congratulating ourselves for an improvement on the Sheffield (another side we should be on a par with) performance are deluded.
  2. Lost a bit of respect for John Kear there. Virtually handing two points to Barrow on a plate, yet the first choice players will no doubt be back in action on Sunday against ourselves.
  3. Seriously? Brearley isn't a centre any more than Ward is a stand-off. He filled in there against Widnes in an emergency and did well. That doesn't mean he should play there every week.
  4. I'll be absolutely staggered if we get within 20 points of them. Dewsbury 34 Batley 6.
  5. Underestimated? No, it's more to do with the fact that we're playing like a Championship 1 team.
  6. The utterly dire Everett and out of form Tomlinson for me.
  7. Brearley has to be in the starting line-up for Sunday. He's an absolute no brainer for the loose-forward slot. Bags of class and all-around ability. No doubt the coach will have different ideas.
  8. Radney Bowker from Leigh and the later Barrow. A hugely talented stand-off who just seemed to fade out of the game.
  9. It was an awful side, yes. If Harrison hadn't immediatey been able to snare Handforth from a bankrupt Doncaster, we'd have been relegated. Our best hope this season is to replace Diskin with a coach who will instil some nastiness, aggression and organisation. It's unlikely that a gem like Handforth would be available.
  10. I actually think that Jouffret has talent. However, it's becoming increasingly apparent that he isn't anywhere near good enough to be the fulcrum of a team playing at this level. Ditching Walker was a huge mistake. Essentially, we let a player of enormous experience and class leave on the basis that Jouffret looked pretty good against Barrow and an unpaid, demoralised Leigh team.
  11. Guess it's subjective, but genuinely struggling to see how Jouffret is even close to anyone's top 3.
  12. Yeah, the two short kick-offs had me in raptures. I could barely contain my excitement on the terraces. In fact, those kick-offs more than made up for the terrible second-half performance. If we keep trying them, we might eventually catch one. Something to build on anyway, onwards and upwards! PS The new toilet paper in the gent's is far less abrasive than the old stuff. Why all the doom and gloom?
