Maybe there is no new players/sponsorship to announce

Bit concerned about Tommy Todds bit in the Whitehaven News this week. We are still in special measures with the RL and no real sign of getting out of that week on week.

For the first time in a while we really do need get a decent sized squad together AND have a good and worthwhile pre-season involving them all...…...after last season I feel the club owes us that much. Not bothered if it's a 'local' player squad so long as we set the pre=season up properly and make it work for us and them.

Makes you wonder how we have managed to re-sign so many players if we're still in special measures

Just read the league express bit it says we are debt free and hoping to come out of special measures so that means we are still in special measures . And 45k was raised out of the 60 needed last season and  sounds like new director Jason ball and an unnamed local businessman as stumped up some cash.

His piece says that they are just waiting on word back from the RFL. He is basically saying that he doesn't know when the RFL will let them know and it is a waiting game but he expects it to be soon. They seem to be relatively optimistic that they will be coming out of special measures reading what Tom says and also what Andrew Canavan says in the League Express. I am sure there is plenty going on behind the scenes in relation to next seasons squad.

Ten signed apparently...…..need a squad of 26, can't for the life of me see where we are going to find 16 more decent additions before pre-season. Fearful it's going to be another season of struggle and make do and mend.

Not expecting miracles but would like to see us start with a comfortable sized, functional, workman like squad with potential to push on as the season progresses and set a platform into the next.

Ah, let me think....what does that mean ?  GOT IT !!!!   A plan to work to and that supporters can buy into and see...... a plan set up and followed from the start.

Just think what Foz could have achieved for us with such luxury.
