Uate - Should never have been signed.

Frawley - Woeful. Worst overseas half back in history to SL.

Matagi - Need to get rid ASAP.

Seb - Need to get rid ASAP.

Ferguson - Needs to retire.

Cudjoe - Needs to retire.

Murphy - Needs to retire before the game has an affect on his long term health.

Roberts - Needs to move on.

Woolford has made 3 terrible overseas signings and is severely deluded. The bloke lost all respect from me for mentioning the play offs in his presser on Tuesday. Playoffs had gone months sgo!!!

Add Bruno to the list I get that he’s defensively okay but going forward he can’t do anything no imagination

I can't recall seeing him pass the ball all season and i can only recall one line-break, He is just another big Eorl after Anderson got to coach him i know what his stats say but many of his tackles he is second and third man in, Been a good man for the Giants, but the operative word there is " been "

I have honestly been suprised everytime we have won this year other than against London, where we have always looked the better team. We really are a team of plodders, and we sure looked it tonight. All season we have relied on being given piggy backs up field from penalties to get into attacking positions because our go forward is non existent. We make good yards from our backs but when it is time for the forwards to take over, with the exception of English, Wilson and sometimes Taii we are utter gash. Lawrence, Murphy, Clough, Roberts, Seb, Walne, Ferguson and Matangi i would happily discard in an instant if it were possible. Add to this the fact that Frawley has been an utter flop and we have no partner for Gaskell and we have quite the predicament.

Once again we are linked with a quality halfback (sezer) but we can never get these signings over the line and instead get 4th and 5th rate aussies because our club now has no pulling power whatsoever. You can't really blame woolford when the players he wants simply wont come here. We have some good young players, but our experienced forwards and halves are so bad that they are very rarely given the chance to develop.

I’ve heard from someone in attendance that Ken Davy made an emotional speech after the game tonight. Talking about the fact he’s spent a small fortune on the club and if what happened tonight happens again he is walking away. Left the room in silence.
I can’t blame him. I’m not likely to go to another game this season given I miss a home game due to holiday and I don’t justify the huge cost for us to go to an away game to be disappointed.
Sobering thoughts.

I dont blame you at all. Im on holiday for the Cas game and I certainly wont be wasting anymore money away from home.

Fair play to Ken for doing that, the players are a disgrace.

On the other hand, if we could get another chairman, maybe it is time for Ken to go, if it means Thewlis losing his job. While ever Ken is in charge, Thewlis will be here and the club will be run like a shambles.

How dare you speak about Bruno and Murphy like that. Both would walk into ant other SL team apparently. Someone on twitter even tried convincing me that Murphy would get in the St Helens team the other week.

Jokes aside, I agree - both are past it. Especially Murph who will end up with some serious long term health issues if he keeps playing.

I think a big thing we’re missing and not really realising is a loose forward , there an important part of the attack and we have Bruno, Murphy or clough playing there

I heard that too and totally understand his feelings. If that's not enough for players, coaches, backroom staff and fans to give everything from now on I don't know what is. He is a true legend of Fartown. Never mind Wagstaff etc... without Ken Davy there would be no club, there would have been no trophies, no memories. We all owe Ken the upmost respect and anyone at the club who isn't prepared to dig deep and fight to avoid relegation should stay at home this morning. I assume Ken/Richard and Simon have called everyone in to have this out. Now is the time for those who are up for the challenge.






FARTOWN FOREVER

FARTOWN LEGENDS - Danny, Eorl, Reilly, Stan and Wally
