I think this is a good article with Sinfield explaining the long term nature of the club rebuild.

I think we as fans do have to be quite patient and not just for this season...

I whole heartedly agree but the fact remains he & GH failed with recruitment/retention this time round 2 marquee signings are great when the rest of the squad are up to it ours arent.
Also giving his mates Jjb & Ablett new deals were shocking calls it takes up squad & cap space when we're desperate for more quality.
Us fans will ALWAYS be here & i doubt anyone is demanding to win every game or every trophy but the dross that replicates last years disaster is & should be unacceptable with players getting hoofed for poor efforts nit just 1 or 2 either .
If that means we struggle then so be it some if them arent woeth the shirt.

Don't mind being patient about most of the rebuild but a lack of commitment and organisation in defence is a different thing entirely. Furner and Sir Kev would do well to stamp that out, b*ll0cks to patience in that regard.

I posted this on another thread after reading this Y.E.P article

But can anyone tell me how Salford went to Catalan and won 46-0 with this squad?

1 Niall Evalds
2 Derrel Olpherts
3 Kris Welham
4 Jake Bibby
5 Ken Sio
6 Robert Lui
7 Jackson Hastings
8 Daniel Murray
9 Joey Lussick
10 Gil Dudson
11 Josh Jones
12 Jansin Turgut
13 Mark Flanagan
Subs
14 George Griffin
15 Greg Burke
16 Ben Nakubuwai
17 Adam Lawton

I'm sure that Ian Watson would also love to improve his squad by shopping at the top table but they seem to be be able to win games with players that wouldn't necessarily get into most other SL sides,So we can't hide behind this excuse anymore

How many of that side would we want?
Their spine of Evalds,Lui,Hastings and Lussick work very well together and Ian Watson is also a very under rated coach (despite being a moaning f#cker)

IMO it's time for our established current first team players to stand up and be counted and to improve our performances and more importantly our results,and if they can't deliver then IMO lets get committed players in from our academy system that will improve our ineptness and weak areas


I was alluding to the fact that even though we are a club in transition that we should easily have the squad ability wise at the club to be able to finish around mid table and deliver results like Salford

No hiding places for any of our squad members IMO

to all those that criticised this team...

But how do you know players won’t get hoofed after this year, Sinfield is saying this won’t be an easy quick fix, that’s the point, we have let quite a few players go already and the ooint Sinfield is making is that it’s pointless recruiting if those players aren’t right for the club hence the need to be patient.

As for the current defending issue, I am sure that its worrying for them but we’ve had two poor performances after two great performances I think we will be inconsistent all year but I really don’t think our squad is ultimately the squad that Furner and Sinfield are building towards.

I find it quite sad that after only 6 matches Sinny feels he has to come out and reiterate the patience is needed message. I'm pleased he has if its felt necessary but a sad indictment on the 'i want it now' view from some fans.

On another note and in terms of rebuilding I will be looking for small signs of positive growth on Friday. There is a worrying trend where we collapse in the second 20 minute period. We have lost 4 out of our 5 defeats in that period. It's no coincidence that that is generally the point props are subbed. If we can stay switched on and muscle up during that period I have no doubt we will win on Friday.

Well, one thing is that Furner will naturally lose some old guard next year, and doesn’t really have attachments to any others - he’s in a great position to give a fairly impartial and professional view, and I’d expect some axing. I’m sure the players are all well aware too.

I’m growing to like Furner’s pressers more now, he does talk a lot of sense and he’s very honest. I miss McDermott being arsey with the reporters though...

The point is there are many players still here that SHOULD have got hoofed already & that was on Sinfields watch.
The fact he also re-signed 2 old guard shows his impaired judgement along with giving Ferres the captaincy.
He/GH & the Club knew full well what was needed & they haven't delivered simple as that.
Yes it will take time yes fans should & will back them but that doesnt mean they are or should be bullet proof.
This isn't an knee jerk 6 games into a rebuild ott reaction this is a response to the same dross same selections & no depth in quality of recruitment stretching back to last year.

Thing is with recruitment is that it needs to be done far in advance to get decent results. Yes there’s always the opportunity to score an unsettled player mid season but the best deals are done in advance. We for some reason seem to really struggle with this and end up scrabbling around for bargain bin project players who more often than not never make the grade.

It isn’t Sinfield or Furners squad no, I agree and we’re obviously trying to replicate the emergence of the next “golden generation” from within the academy which takes time. We’ve lost the ethos and mentality that made us so successful and we are now desperately trying to get it back, again this takes time.

I would rather the club did their homework on players and make sure they are willing to buy in to the ethos and history of the club much like Kylie and Delaney did, this again takes time to do.

Unfortunately, time doesn’t wait and despite two corking marquee signings we are still struggling to erase the horrors of 2016 & 2018 mentaly. It’s hard going from everyone patting you on the back to everyone criticising you and some of the players are really struggling to live up to the standards needed and required.

The transition has been bungled, there’s no other word for it. We’ve taken our eye off all fronts and lost our edge. We have players in our team who just can’t live up to the pressure of wearing the shirt, we’ve got players in the team who have lost the appetite and fire for success probably due to the amount of it we’ve had for 15 years. It’s not an easy fix, but it is being looked at I’m sure, KS & DF can’t afford not to.

I’ll admit after watching that sublime 30 mins against saints I, in a refreshed state boasted “we’re back!” Which obviously in hindsight, I was wrong, though we have shown in spurts we are getting our ruthless streak back. We were so good against Salford and Saints that I think we maybe got carried away with just how good we are, when there’s obviously heaps of work still to be done.

I have no problem with a rebuild and time. I don't really think Sinfield needed to come out with it, it should have been clear for all it would take time, from the mess McDermott left.

However, where I do have a problem is the way they are going about it. We are still persisting with players who will never make a difference to our long term fortunes in a million years. Why do this? Why not lose with a bit of planning at least, knowing that you are working with players with a future to make that difference?

I also can not accept the defensive effort thus far. That is inexcusable and not something to hide behind long term rebuild. Effort and desire, should be must have requirements at any time.
