2020 Signings

Recommended Posts

Will all come down to budget and squad size , a small handful of players taking a huge chunk of budget as been proved doesn't work, hence why the squads been to thin.

A mixture of locals, experience and young players ripe for improvement is my preferred option, whatever way we go the squad needs better balance than this season.

True . Collectively we’ve been largely average . There’s not many can look in the mirror and say they’ve been up to scratch 

Dawson, Curwen and Singleton can hold their heads up.

Heard a rumour at work we are signing Jessie Joe Parker as he is surplus to requirements.

Dont know how factual it is as it's only a rumour but it seems viable. 

Be very good for town but isn't the player he was hasn't played much 2nd half of the season won't make it at champ level now so in league 1 can still do a job I'd say very hard for me to say he's passed it but he is sadly when we first got him wow what a strike player

I would add Scholey, Forber and Mellor to that list, they may have had some poor games but they never stopped working in games.

As has Dec O,Donnel,  even more special given he came on loan for a few games originally, not many loanees have given that level of committment

Buffer's points tally is duly flagged up at  the top of the stats table both for goals and points. If he's up for another season l would be happy. He would be a great mentor for Blain Marwood. Having said that Carl had a very poor game against Donny but most did. Stevie's work rate is second to none but Mellor ,despite his great form , is gone l understand.

If we dont get through the play offs then Regarding these 3 staying or not comes down to the question  Is  next season promotion at all  costs  or  build a team over 3 years under CT  capable of making the step upto championship level. If its the latter then I would expect to see some if not all 3 move on. 

What do you mean, three years in champ. Div. 1? You must be joking.

Given the RFL's approach to the basement division we need to get out a.s.a.p.!  God knows who they will fast-track in from all corners of the Globe at the expense of the traditional heartlands.

I meant will the strategy  be 1. building a team over the next few years  working with mainly locals  or 2.going flat out for promotion next season  bringing short term travellers in.

  Of course nobody wants to be in this league but sometimes you have to take stock and work to a planned stratergy. Hopefully the RFL will see sense and go back to a two league structure soon anyway.

So he's past it and hasn't played much this season but would still be very good for Town. ?

Meaning at his current age and condition he's very good for league 1 but not championship level anymore and we need championship class players or higher now town are in league 1 and would DO a fine job at league 1 level there's a big step between league 1 and championship standard

They should just have a team less in the championship surely our league can't go down to 10 teams. Let's get back to 2 divisions. Gutted for Swinton by the way.

Haven't said I wanted him back. Just wondering as he is often still named in the 19? 

I didnt want him back last time. As talented as he is. He is nothing but a disruption

I think thorman must given his chances like every other coach and he has blown it.

Would expect him to get a chance at haven next season as some of his best rugby was under charlo previously and wait and see I'm thrive in the championship.

On the jjp case I'd take him if given the chance too. Isnt he a local now on paper? Whatever happened back end of the season for haven, he is always class in a derby as is dion

Clearly I do. So can you please explain why we are in the current position if these 3 have been upto the standards this season? 

That will be the  3 that just about won the game for town  today!

I think both ourselves and Haven would be crazy to go anywhere near KO next season, more than likely be back at Wath Brow if he plays anywhere.

Wath Brow is a place only for the dedicated they expect as much as any Pro team
