  1. Theres plenty around. Depends what position.... look at the (Barrow) town and county trials.... plenty there

    Totally agree with cresswell. Forgot about him and Carter. I thought Johnstone had left.my bad Brad is a Prop at leeds. Perry is his brother. The centre at town.

    Good coach but he has a much bigger pool to pick from in the oldham M62 catchment area. Thats always been an issue with costs and player recruitment. We have the A595 corridor Its finding a blend of cumbrians (as in living in cumbria) plus I would assume 4/5 travelling lads from lancashire... plus whatever is worth promoting from the 19s alongside Ford. With Haven going up most likely I would see if the more south lakelend contingent of kelly,wilkinson and dowsett were interested Plus if you put feelers out for Singleton, Marwood and Bolton from Workington.. would also say Walsh but I think Ford fills that gap. That could replace some of the inevitable exedous and also cut costs on paying travelljng fees/petrol monies or higher salaries? They have all shown they can handle league 1. 1. Bolton -Askam/Town 2. Ford -Walney 3. Singleton -Barrow Island/Town 4.Star Amean 5. S Toal - Ulv 6. Spend salary cap - would love to see ritson play there. 7. Marwood... Barrow Island/Town although more a 9 i know 8. Spend Salary Cap 9.Dowsett - Askam/Haven 10.E Kelly- Millom/Haven 11. D Toal - Ulv 12. J Smith 13. Wilkinson Ulv/Haven 14.Crellin -millom 15. T Hopkins -Askam/BARLA 16.C.Tyrell (if interested) Millom/St H trial 17. Puara 18. Saunders - ulv/BARLA Then Ideally Joe Bullock for half the season post knee op would be ideal Plus blood another 3/4 under 19s and spend the rest of the salary cap on the two biggest front rowers you could afford. Think Ritson Riley Stack amd Walker will all be back up the coast Susino is off, but couldnt expect less. Starts looking promising than some of the poorer signings (in my opinion from what ive seen) Loxham Duffy Charnock Hulme Spedding Could all go for me Dallimore ... brilliant one week. Awful the next... no idea what I would do as coach or chairman for him

    Who's the options ?? Realistically for cost and local player knowlege (Of which im sure we will have to utilise for a high % of next years squad?) Or would someone alongside Paul be better and transition. I think with funding cuts Pauls knowlege of league 1 could or should still be used? Also for those players, who may have to come in from amateur levels aside from pride and playing for the town, what is the pull vs playing amateur.
  7. Nothing wrong but with securing your future but think of it as any other business. ?? Imagine if the coach propsed this to secure his future by doing something similar... .
  8. Another one is referenced in the story. Im glad the club are getting rid of people who dont want to be there.

    York at home

    Finally some sense on a forum... ... halleluja!!
  10. Wigan at home was the best spectacle down Craven Park in a long time. The fubds for the players helped, but the coaches and main band of players were local. Harrison Nixon centre wing would stand up to most of the lower SL teams now, Same for Broadbent.... didnt drop a thing One of the hidden gems was unearthed in Dave Armi who went onto better things Catic was class but bonkers Saying that we bought some dogs... (see michael smith/weisner) It was great times but i think with the current chairmain it will happen again.... but maybe in 5 years..... I reckon he has a cunning plan
  11. Outstanding player but I doubt would drop to league one. Would be a great signing for a lot of top club
  12. Really. Ah..... my eyesight and general awareness must have been way off. My bad
  13. Kahmal Ganley could slot them.. favourite kicker in a long time Holty surely is top by consistency over time. Suppose considering how many games weve lost by the odd couple of points, for CH1 a good goalkicker is a must
  14. Is it not this jeopardy/win loss, human error that makes sport great. If we had have won because of it we wouldnt moan and im sure weve had key decisions go our way. Its just sport. If it becomes so sanitized people will loose more interest in the game. I see it with football already, soon players wont celebrate the extasy of scoring a goal (see beckam/tardelli/roger milla/aguero) They will just wait like a numpty for the ref to check in the VAR pit. Technically (after analysis) the 3rd goal in the 66 world cup final didnt go over the line.... so what... Just get on with it. Eventually Karma will come good
  15. Just a quick question as I wasnt at the game in Sunday Reading in the press Paul thought a late and bad tackle injuring Stargroaths leg was left unpunished and should have been pulled up by the ref. However, when (from the sounds of things) a similar incident occured vs Sheffield, our player in question was left unpunished in the game and was defended post match in the press? Are we just clutching at straws here ? We got beat, by a team we should have beat. Im a massive fan of Paul and I think time,effort, rugby savvyness and commitment to Barrow he's been the best coach we've had in 20 years. But is this not a bit bizzare? Although with it being the NW evening mail it could well be the wrong quote/sport/person!!!
