Hope we can start off well tonight,get some early points on the board to help build our self assurance.If we go behind early,the way things have gone lately on our travels, and with our confidence being on the brittle side just now,I might fear the worst.

The new Salford coach is desperate for his first win,and slammed his own players last week.

With all our injuries and the positional changes,it could be a nervy night.Usual concern about the kicking game without Brough.

That could well be Game,set and match DL, hopefully not but it doesn't look good now, we need Wolves to beat Catalan. Not that i think we stand any sort of chance in the playoff's on present form but there's always a chance of a miracle

fully agree about the playoffs, tonight after watching Wigan destroy the team that scored just short of 40 points against us and nilling us to boot. The gulf in class is shocking, what's happened to the team that destroyed and hurt Wire in MM and destroyed Leeds on their patch. We can't buy an away win at the moment.

The Giants are not really a team that look very convincing at the moment in either defence or attack.

Rant over

I know what you are saying Pg and you are right If there one thing i can do without right now it's watching Wigan destroy and humiliate us at Wembley, for that reason I'm glad now we didn't get there, Although there are so many Fans who rightly or wrongly would be over the moon to be going to Wembley , No matter how bad the beating they would be claiming it as a massive step forward from where we have been 20 years ago, Doesn't wash for us does it mate, I'm getting like my Grandson I don't want to watch losers, If i was Ken Davy i would be walking away as we speak, and i would be wanting this years wages back from N Brown and a few players to take with me.

All the above is absolutely spot on, start of the season I was saying we were gonna finally win something with the squad we had built up, IMO we had the strongest pack in SL and with Broughy felt we had finally got there. How wrong I was and I don't go along with the view that a cup run and top 6 finish is a good season.
Brown has been here 3 years now and it's his team and his tactics we are playing to and as seen in the last few months we are not good enough by far.
The gulf in class between us and Wigan is massive and I am not exaggerating, people will post otherwise but would anyone back us in the playoffs if we had to go to any of Wigan,Saints,Wire,Catalans,Leeds,Cas or any of the Hull clubs cos I certainly wouldn't!!!!!

yup go along with that and nothing much lately has caused me to think otherwise, IMO we looked tired, drained poor defensively and devoid of ideas in attack.

This is only my opinion but we have been out enthused by some pretty ordinary teams 2nd half of this season as opposed to 1st half of season where we were on fire and looking tough to beat.

I can only call it as I see it from the sidelines but form is not something you can turn on and off whenever it suits, We will have to improve greatly to win again.

We have gone from a very good side to a very poor side in the space of 3 months, none of this had been done deliberately i know that, but to me that's where a coach shows his metal, a really good one can get a side up and playing above themselves, winning games they really have no right to win, He can't make them stronger or faster or more skillful, The difference has to come in attitude and desire and as far as i can see in that department at the moment we are bottom of the league.
Provided the players are training well, they are still as fit and fast as they were, then the rest is down to N Brown It's his job to see that the Attitude is spot on ,the Desire to put the shirt on and win is spot on , and they are proud to play for K Davy, If there are players who don't feel like that , he should know who they are and they should be left out of the team or even got rid of, If he can't do that then he is not good enough and he should be moved on IMO ( maybe easier said than done )
The thing is he has proved he can do all these things, but for some reason whether it be personnel or what, he is not doing it now, and is starting to sound and coach ever more like one of our previous coaches, Maybe he is homesick or something, he has been going and then staying, and the teams form has gone up and down each time it's come up about him leaving, only this time it's stayed down, For the kind of money he will be getting and the size and quality of squad K Davy has supplied we should be sitting pretty, not going down the tubes.

These are all just my own opinions i have no inside information whatever and they may be a million miles from the truth, but they are as i see things. To me going on what i have seen this last few months there are teams out there playing at a different level to us, and i cant think of a legitimate reason why they should be.
