I had Batley +30 but what a shock result! 

Not for the bulldogs fans. We knew deep down we could turn them over on their own ground. That's 3 points we have taken from fev this season.

Chizzy.

Totally irrelevant 

He played at Batley and made sod all difference - in fact he had a dg chance with more time and space than he'd could have asked for and missed by a country mile

You are allowed 4 subs , why NOT play them all. Would Ford have made a difference who knows. but we will never know.

 Ashworth was a waste of time and why swop Broadbent for Gale. The wheels are beginning to fall off. . Barley had 3 sets in our 20 and scored 3 tries. defence non existent, and then attach was fractured. |All we neede when only 2 points down was PATIENCE nor trying to score like headless chickens. Hope that is not the season gone .

Things that summed up how disjointed and disinterested we were for me We're

1. Kheirallah making the break down the middle and having no one anywhere near him.

2. Jacks making half a yard of space for himself and having to kick for the corner as you could have thrown a table cloth over 10 of our players. 

3. Moors electing to pass instead of falling over the line to score.

Ford ???

By this and the post above I'm assuming he didn't bring Ford on ? 

Madness , if you have a half/hooker ( a player like Chizzy , a runner )  type of player on the bench then fine ,that's understandable , but Ford isn't that type of player , you either play him from the start or leave him out altogether IMO

He wants us to play under a certain “philosophy”. The players looked clueless at the end of sets and looked to have no direction what so ever. 

Ashworth was shocking.

Players dropping off tackles left, right and centre. Errors all over the place.

Am sure we will get fed the usual arrogant response of it being not good enough blah blah blah but we need to lose, losses are good aren’t they?

Struggling in attack all game so yeh, why would you put Ford on? Joke.

Maybe he could go and coach a big town team? The bloke is a complete moron.

100%

   Totally outplayed by a Batley side doing the basics.IE fronting up,  tackling with determination and energy and playing as a team.Nothing changed for us still a two or three match season but we will need a miracle to trouble Leigh.We were soft in the middle (AGAIN) and the writing was on the wall weeks ago when a poor Dewsbury team put over 20 points past us.Today we lacked pace at half back and it was the type of game Chizzy could have added a spark .We were beat at the time but Moors pass was a shocker round the bootlaces and may have scored if he had shown the determination Locky did in the first half.Quite a few heard saying Mac out round me.Still can't get my head round signing Ford and letting Chizzy go.Role on Newcastle next week but even a big win will not disguise the sour taste today's game brought.

Too many has beens and too many players who can make something out of nothing eg: hall,Jones,smith,jacks,kerellah but are too scared to play off the cuff because they’ll get dropped, need big changes otherwise we could be falling further round the ladder

If Chizzy is as good as a lot of fev fans are saying, why is he now playing at Keighley?

The Keighley that scored 62 points today ?

They need to put Leigh and Batley into Super League and make a 14 team league. That'll be the next media output🙄

They can for me lol.
