  1. I went and was massively disappointed! Spent years listening to how expensive the food and beer is in London and then get charged £4.50 for a substandard pint and the same for chips and cheese!!!! Felt I’d been mugged. All pubs close to the ground closed by 11pm unless had music and you were in before a certain time which, having gone for food made it impossible as stayed to watch the Leigh show
  2. The personnel for RL and many other hangers on were too busy getting fed and watered at a posh hotel to worry about what was actually happening. It’s systematic of the culture in this country st present - look after yourself and if you are lucky enough to be at the top or inner circle, stay there, don’t make waves and keep taking the spoils! why organise for the club furthest away to play first agains one of the clubs closest to the ground! Shocking planning unless of course no one cares about London - oh that’s right - they don’t! the most sensible choice of opener would have been Fax v Bradford as both local and bring big numbers to get the stands going! Put London 2nd or 3rd! let’s have a open declaration of costs for the weekend and how much Leeds got/RL and how that was broken down! Bet expenses were a high cost factor
  3. Well said, get out of Wimbledon and over to Kent - train service good from north or south
  4. Why would you put the club out of its misery when they win? The best experience I have had at a ground do date! Everything was laid in and nothing was too much trouble - a permanent move would be a wise one as Wimbledon is too large and formal with no character to it
  5. London were good but why bother with Albert - 10/15 mins for a full game - marquee signing who has not matched his rep but paratta has excelled
  6. ? Not sure what the comment was but want to believe that everyone on this thread wants broncos to succeed otherwise why would you be bothered? It’s been clear from matches that we are in the mix and just wish they had gelled earlier and those who were not feeling it had walked away
  7. All those who walk off not giving a damn about the loss - in particular at Workington. I don’t need to name them as I trust Mike and believe the selection will speak for itself when players are fit again
  8. I said way back that there were no pre season matches that carried any weight, Coleman brought in mates and players he’d seen do well against him at skolars! He did a real number on the squad and then Hughes keeping him as long as he did has bee so detrimental! I honestly believe if they had gone before Newcastle the outcomes would now be showing but Mike has an uphill battle! Given the performance today though it is really encouraging and think we should be looking at how we continue to build further - first job is to lose all those players who are not interested as just dead wood!
  9. Need to look for another half - Tom Holmes went to Sheffield on loan but didn’t think they needed a half long term and he is not going to feature in the current Fev 21 so London need to do some deals
  10. So what now? Siti much better as centre and need another half! Tried Thomas - ex skolar who has been around but made some really poor decisions and kicks when he played, Ramsey was from west wales so surely not up to the job, one appearance as replacement hooker so not seen what he can do but given he was signed in pre season I assume he’s had his chances in training and reserves/skolars? Newcastle is definitely a winner if can get the selection right and the lads come out with the fight they showed last week but with continued momentum rather than dropping off in second half and an improvement in line speed
  11. Then London need to do something about it then - cannot keep disrupting the team and it’s a chance to build here
  12. It is hard and when there is lack of guidance it comes down to grit and desire to win and I really hope now that London can begin to build in this and allow this one win to steady their nerve and build- bring back Rob Butler to provide another anchor and allow more rotation in the middle and get some leadership at training. Not heard anything about the coach as still think London could do with fresh eyes and ideas from someone who has worked at a higher level than league one!
  13. This is the problem London have and All fans are brutal when things go wrong - they give so much negativity in the name of ‘it’s my right as I’ve supported for years’ A lot of players in part time contracts earning as little as £4k to train 3 times a week and give the whole weekend up each week for the chance to play RL. It’s a tough place to be when you are losing and the coaches and management do need to look at how to change things up
  14. Totally agree- had more fight about them, bienek was superb in first half. Actually played with pace and looked like wanted to be there! Need to build consistency now and if keep Chisholm and he comes down and trains with them they should improve week on week!
  15. The best points made so far, the sheer disappointment around the way the club has been handled over the past two seasons with seemingly no regard for the longevity of the sport. It is inconceivable how people involved cannot see this and I am sure it is why the likes of Powell and Ward left the set up but their departure signaled the direction it was going and something needs to be done for the entire structure quickly or the rescue mission may well be too late and leave jo survivors
  16. But coach does need to do the job - last 2 weeks there has been 2 9’s, 2 2nd rows and 1 prop in the middle, half who is does not seem happy to be in London and has only been down for Saturday run through so how can there be any link up and as for size, similar match up to Sheffield, agree but nowhere close to Leigh. Do agree though that skill set and link up between Leigh players was class but I believe there is that potential in the broncos
  17. Ramsey came from league 1 west wales- not broncos academy! Do think that the lack of reserves recruitment is worrying and have to play academy boys up who may or may not be ready should be looked at from safeguarding point of view!
  18. I agree - sad to see them getting turned over like that and the worst of is it that with a bigger pack broncos could compete. But when it takes 3/4 men to halt the tackle each time And when you only have 15 fit by the end of first half you know it’s gonna be bad! Not sure how to pick themselves up and go again as they have a winnable game in next two but need to have self belief and a couple of players off the bench with muscle
  19. Sadly have to agree - the flavour of league is just not hear this season and don’t know when it started but the last two years have not helped any and not sure what the answer is but vicious circle as need top flight clubs being successful which in turn lifts interest and so on
