Brian McDermott.......Gone!!

Someone’s got to take a punt on Lingard?

Someone on Saturday said Sean Long, I’d never met the bloke before so this could have been influenced by beer In Manchester City Centre.

From I can gather, there is no chance of local lad Craig Lingard being Rovers coach whilst MC owns the club.  No love lost between them apparently. 

We've had Longy before, wouldn't be the most inspiring choice.

If we could just clone Ryan Carr, that would be ideal.

outside bet, John Kear, dont laugh you could do far worse. The champioship is basically a short knock out contest at season end. Purpose built for the bloke.

Apologies. I couldn't help laughing.

No thanks. We've just had a season right from 1999 in terms of playing style. We really don't need 1899 style Rugby.

McDermott didn't exactly have a bad record in the play off format until this season...

he would have got you past Batley yesterday

Maybe so, but the rest of the season would have been one long snorefest, just like this year.

I know it's all about one game for clubs like us and Leigh, but it's not too much to ask to be entertained for the duration of the season.

Can't see him getting another gig now. He inherited one of the best teams of the SL era at Leeds and left them in a worse position, he had Toronto looking miles behind the pack despite outspending most of SL, came in as a consultant to see Oldham relegated and has now dismantled what was a pretty formidable Fev team in 2021 to a collection of aging stars on short term deals. He clearly has no idea how to build something at a club.

pretty much nailed it with that post - handed a golden team that was already ingrained with sucess - added nothing - a 10-year-old could have held the Leeds coach position at that time and looked good

If its two up I think they poach Poaching and go for it one more season. If it isn´t I think they need to realize they aren´t outspending Toulouse so no point in being expensive runners up and simply slash the budget and rebuild for a few years time. So if it´s scenario B you should get a young coach in and actually tell him not to worry about year one but change the brand of rugby then worry about playoff nonsense in years two and three.

It seems Fev fans are more than happy to see him go.

Can I ask though, what's the issue Fev fans?

Is it just the results or is there something else you're unhappy with?

The playing style,chopping and changing the team all the time,too many old players, no communication with the fan's, his way or no way when everyone else can see what was wrong. Good riddance 👏
