A season that promised so much ends in despair. Again. Where did it all go wrong?
Looking back on our results, I recall that when we played London away on July 6 - at which point we were comfortably in 2nd place in the table - we were excellent in attack in the first half and went in 36-0 up. Happy days. In the second half we were appalling and got nilled. In our nine league games since then, we have scored 12, 18, 10, 12, 6, 6, 23, 4 and 12.
A strange and sudden reversal in form. Almost as strange as the mid-season departures of Ryan Atkins and Kevin Brown and the late-season disappearance of Matt Davis, all without proper explanation from either the club or the media.
Looking ahead, Chris Hill will be 32 by the time next season starts, while Mike Cooper and Stefan Ratchford are 31. Seven players have gone, and of the three to have been recruited so far, one is injury-plagued and will be 31 in March, one is from the Championship and one is an inexperienced youngster.
Those 'cracks' we papered over with the cup win are starting to look more like the San Andreas Fault.

Don't worry we'll have some 'hilarious' memes and GIFS to look forward to. They could've tried £5/10 for season ticket holders last night for a kick off as some real marketing. I think Fitzpatrick summed it up earlier in the season with his horrible 'orchestra pit' metaphor - the bar is clearly being set as low as possible on and off the field.






Ettinghausen's gone ice skatin'

I would add Stef and Coops to that list, both have been outstanding

Its worrying looking at our recruitment and potential team against that of Wigan for 2020. We desperately need help for Coops and Hill what we have and have coming through is very poor.

Agree with this

joe philbin
Ratch
Coops

The rest need to look in the mirror long and hard

I think Austin deserves adding to the list, even though he only really played for half the season. He was sensational in the opening rounds. I wonder if he will be with us next season (post injury)?
