Where do i start?

We should be running over the top of teams like Barrow but yet again our inadequacies at half back were shown up again. I really do think its time Leroy Joe said goodbye, yes hes been a good servant but on his recent performances he hasn't got what it takes to play for Havens U21 team never mind a team that is supposedly pushing for promotion. As i have said in previous threads i expect us to really struggle this season unless action is taken now.

The players are starting to look like they frankly dont give a *%^&, with their cushy little jobs at Sellafield  and coach who doesn't seem to have a good old fashioned rollicking in him. They should remember the fans who slog their guts out all week and pay the wages (and good ones at that) to run around a field for 80 minutes. They need a good kick up the backside.

We looked bereft of any ideas today and uninterested. If the current trend continues then expect a few heavy defeats this season, plummeting attendances and the slow slide into oblivion that will no doubt ensue.

We need a stand off end of story, are Rotherham and the board blind, stupid or both. Even the most unknowledgable RL fan in the world can see it plain and simple but through either misguided loyalty or inability to attract players they dont seem to have any answer whatsoever.

Instead of wittering on about ground improvements we should concentrate on whats happening on the pitch.

Rotherham sort it out or *&^$ off back down to St Helens.

i agree with some of your points reg we do need a fast stand off with some creativity and if we continue on like we are then we are looking at a long hard season but as i said in another post at least DR trying new stuff in the NRC against 'lesser' oposition ( no disrespect to any of the teams we are playing ) and not in the league season where we cant afford to experiment but nobody is "wittering on about ground improvement" we need to improve the ground or there is no point in having a good team and winning the final because we will still be in NL1 the season after we have had a strong team for the last couple of seasons and can build on that with new signing and bringing through the young players from the academy and scolarship programme ( we just need to start signing the best players around whitehaven which in some cases we haven't IMO) but yes we definatley need 2 improve and quickly get our injured players back and start picking the best players such as sicey

Regarding Stand-Off, would definately have a look at Maxime Greseque from Pia.

Worth bringing him over on say a 2 week trial, especially as French season is nearly over.

Guy is fast, elusive and an amazing kicker, both in play, conversions and can hit drop-goals - no dig intended Rudd.

Tommy Lee is unproven and isn't worth the risk IMO we need someone who has experience and he doesn't have it. As far as im concerned Ruud at 6 and Duffy at 7 will be a great half back pair for this season. we missed sicey and his breaks yesterday he should be in the team over Matty he's simply a better player.

I  think  there  is  passion  but  on  Sunday  we  lacked  idea's.  We  gifted  them  2  silly  tries  in  the  2nd  half.  1  we  looked  like  scoring  before  they  intercepted..  We  hammered  away  at  their  line  enough  but  just  couldn't  cross  it  enough  to  win  the  game.

As  said  its  only  3  games  and  if  memory  serves  me  right  weren't  we  in  a  similar  situation  last  year.  Lets  keep  the  faith.

what we have lacked since february 2006 is the ability to tackle and defend, we conceed far too many points

what we had in february 2004- september 2005 was the ability to tackle and defend, we conceded very few points

what  changed between september 2005 and february 2006? ???

I agree with you Ryan as theres nothing wrong with Rudd & Duffy we did miss sicey as he is the one that puts the ball over the line and duffy as he makes plays.
