    Totally. I miss bull Bailey and all the 1% w/o r k he would put in.

    It just sucks being us. There is no fix. Itís entirely up to our players now to get us out of this S**t Sandwich.
    From what I can tell our club and coaching staff can not do anything more to help and resource them.

    Iíve been frustrated with our kick chase all year. Now from watching our team yesterday more closely Iím convinced that itís deliberate that the coach wants us to run in a flat line and sacrifice pressure.
    Fullbacks and wingers must love playing us.

    Yep, visa issues and a local MP has now come out saying it needs to be fast tracked. Not sure why we rushed him over here when he couldn't play. He missed out on his send off in the UK because of this.

    I think the trade deadline was preventing that anyway, JB.

    Very good point you make. Seems like it's been a double failure. We pay and can't play him and he misses out on a send off from a crowd that has appreciated him.

    It got slightly better but at the start I really couldn't believe what I was reading. I was thinking of posting it here but I just deleted it instead. After reading it I felt more depressed rather than uplifted. Maybe Mal doesn't get it either, but then again he has only been exposed to 6 months of this crap and not years like most of us.

    Mal just reiterated everything Hodges said in post game interviews.

    From our squad, those who have it-

    AJ
    Kelly
    Arrow
    Wallace (not a star but last 5 weeks has given effort and happy for him to be a forward option)
    Taylor (lot to prove, but near his best definite keeper)
    James
    Mo
    Whitbread (really impressed with energy and workload)

    Those who don't-

    Peachey
    Stockwell
    Lee
    Roberts
    Jacks
    Boyd (Shannon)
    Matthews

    Servicable, but could definitely upgrade-

    Peats
    Rein
    Copley
    Don
    Proctor

    Want to see more of-

    Stone (worked hard today)
    Tanah Boyd
    Callum Watkins
    Spry
    Latu


    Undecided-

    Cartwright
    Hipgrave
    ooh i was almost 100% on board with every single player till i saw cartright. i have him in the keep category personally but otherwise the list is perfect from my persepective
