I am 44 years old . Watched HRLFC (in whatever guise) my whole life. That's the truth. And what is more, I will follow them until I die, in whatever guise.

HOWEVER, imo the only way forward for this club now is to WIN A TROPHY! If we don't, we will stagnate, regress, & if KD decides to throw it in (& I for one wouldn't blame him) it will be done & dusted.


WE NEED TO WIN A POT!!! Or the club simply cannot progress.

Rant over.

Some great posts, and what a nice change to have some different opinions, We are all entitled to our opinions and not surprisingly mine are very much in line with PG's, He is without doubt one of the most dedicated Fartown fans i have ever met (far more so than me ), As much as i respect K Davy for what he has done ( and i do ) I would be just as happy for the PG's and the like,( should we manage to get some silverware ), A lifetime of supporting Fartown, and heaven knows how many thousands of miles and virtually nothing to show for it since 1962, That wants a bit of beating.

As far as Warrington goes i would suggest the main differences are, 1 they have won things recently, ( before they did they were much the same as us ) and 2 they don't have 15,000 people shelling out to watch the towns soccer team, Sadly Fartown will always come second best to Town, it has ever been that way and i fear will always remain so, It will be even harder to compete next season as Town will have a far more attractive fixture list..

With or without N Browns strange blips in team selections, we need to get back our commitment and intensity, and win something, we have most of the players to do that, And apart from that we need to find a Bl***y top class stand off from somewhere for next season, forget the Bret Ferres's and Scot Moores and the other overloaded positions, WE NEED A STAND OFF, That's what will get me renewing my season ticket, and when we find one (if) we need to hang on to him instead of doing a Hodgson.

Sorry PG,I know what you are getting at,but I don't buy it,well most of it.I will repeat again those who are unemployed,or suffering real financial hardship in these tough times I have some sympathy for.Me I'm lucky I'm employed,maybe one day in the near future I may not be anymore,who knows.Suppose it's no different in Warrington.

The point about someone saving up for Perpignan,illustrates what I am getting at,nice break in the sun,but then maybe a couple of weeks later can't be bothered getting a bus up to Odsal.

Like you say it''s personal choice for them to do what they like,just as it's my choice to pack in when KD does.I don't regard myself as a 'super fan' in any way shape or form,just galls me a bit that we have so many take it or leave it type so called supporters.KD has always said he can't do it on his own he needs the backing of the people of the town.Not belittling what went before but like I say with KD at the helm we will never have a better opportunity.

BTW I was at the Swinton cup game,the no contest affair.

Garbage.

For a few people Rugby is like porn to them. They eat, sleep and breathe it, have every shirt and probably the Giants wall calendar on their wall. I bet you have a half naked E8orl as your screen saver on your phone.

Not everyone is like that. Others support the Giants as an aside, i.e they enjoy the game but wont go if it's on Sky or if something else better is on or even if the weather is nice enough to hit the coast.

It is not down to you to determine a true fan from any other fan and it's certainly not down to you to dictate who should and shouldn;t be in attendance.

FWIW I wont be there, just like I wasnt at the Hull Kr game. I don;t have to explain to you or anyone why that was or why I wont be at the Semi. Nonetheless I consider myself a fan of the Giants.

I have to say i agree with most of what Gem says, because it's more or less how i feel about it these days DL, But i do understand how you feel because for many years i felt the same , ( wishing we could get people to go in big numbers ) The fact is " as i have said before " Huddersfield is and always will be a soccer town, I wish it was otherwise but it ain't.

The main reason i go these days is for the Grandson, I got him into going, but I am struggling to keep him interested, At 9 years old kids only want to watch winners, He plays Rugby Union and Cricket at school, he also plays tennis and Golf so as previously mentioned he has a lot of other things going on in his life besides League.

With regards to K Davy I truly wish we could win something for him, though sadly once again we look as though we are going to fall short again, It's not over as they say till the fat lady starts warbling, but we need a massive change in fortunes and attitude to have any chance against Wolves, Nevertheless he deserves some success, although as PG said there are people who have put far more into Fartown than he has and seen no success at all.

The other thing is for me, If people like you or me or whoever start to feel like they have to start apologizing or giving reasons for not going, Then when Does the team start apologizing to us for not turning up like the last few games, When does N Brown stop spouting rubbish in the Examiner and come out and say " i have made a complete Mess of it these last few weeks and i feel i owe you the fans an apology " When you work out the sort of money He and the team are on for 2/3 training sessions ( i have to pay to go to the Gym )and 80 minutes of football a week " many of them only 40 minutes a week " " and some of them hardly any at all " To me it's pretty clear who should be feeling guilty. I know i worked a hell of a lot harder in my working live for a fraction of what they get payed.

When you go and see them beaten by Wigan having put up a decent show or Catalan where the result could have gone the other way, well that's fair enough, but we are talking a completely different thing against Widnes and KR. N Brown and his team are squandering the Fans and K Davy's best and maybe even last chance to win something, With Town getting promoted it will be even tougher to get fans next year, I shall continue to go down myself, and even to some away games, but it's unlikely i shall renew my season ticket, more likely i will pick my games and make do with the Telly for the rest of my League.

It's not too late to make a decent fist of the rest of the season, I truly hope it can be done , but i wouldn't put a lot of money on it.

Well I know I'm not alone with my opinions,even though I knew my comments would annoy the 'dunt tell me wot to do wi my brass and time' types.A good few Fartown fans came up to me and said the public of Huddersfield don't deserve a SL club on the back of the 'can't be assed ' attendances,and that they would well understand it if Sir Ken pulled the plug.I didn't prompt them this is what they said to me.Of course I totally agreed with them.

This is a good quote off the other forum -

"If there aren't 5500 Fartown supporters at the semi thats bearly 40 minutes travel time away thats pathetic." Not my words,those of another fan.

In a pub in Wigan once one of their fans said to me 'you are just a small club and we would not be bothered if you left SL' of course I tried to defend us.Now I wouldn't bother,would just agree.

Another thing imo it's time they got rid of that 'birthplace of rl' on our chests.Now just it's just embarrassing when you note the apathy.

As I've said when KD is gone I am gone,and that will be me pleasing myself.

Will always be the Birthplace of Rugby League and that at least can never be taken away. Everyone entitled to their opinions and that's what's good about this site, lots of differing opinions without resorting to the silly name calling etc. Would understand if Ken walked away after feeling he has done all he can and it's true Huddersfield is now a football town.
Not sure that even winning owt will help anymore, but would be nice to at least have that option.
Just to throw a thought into the discussion, does anyone think if Bradford went to the wall it would help the Giants attendances? Just a thought

Healthy debate is great and when people do it without fear of being belittled its even better.

I have to agree though, we should be selling our allocation of semi final tickets. Salford is easy to get to, the time isn't silly and the prices are reasonable. Yet the cup is not seen as anything too important until the final and Fartown fans are no different in that. Warrington are selling their allocation more easily because they have a bigger pool of fans to sell too.

Personally I like the birthplace thing, it is true so why not shout about it. If we are ever to turn this town more positive on RL then things like that should help.

Just a couple of thoughts.....

1) If we win a trophy, attendances will improve considerably. As a previous poster said, people want to watch a winning side. It happened to Bradford, Leeds & Wire, & it will happen to us if we get a pot. Soccer town or not, people will come if we win a trophy.


2) As regards our current form. I'm pretty sure I speak for the majority of fans when I say that no-one minds if we lose when we've played our hardest & tried our best whoever the opposition. HOWEVER, what even the most diehard fan can't stomach is a team who just t**s it off & don't seem to care if they win or lose & then spout the same trash in the local rag week after week & insult the intelligence of supporters who follow the Giants every week no matter what. That is just out of order.


It's do or die now. Either win a pot or suffer the consequences imo.

I don't think it would make much difference myself FP It's the old ( I'll never support anybody else thing ) I reckon Bradford will be back," they may never even go" London Wakey " Most people in League only want to support their own side, they are not interested in England, GB, Oz or anyone else outside their own club( nor everyone of course ) The next representative match at the Galpharm whoever it is, will have miniscule numbers from Huddersfield, as i have said earlier I'ts just not a rugby league town, I mean we pay half the price of everyone else and still cant get numbers.
I think DL has it the wrong way round, It's not so much that Huddersfield doesn't deserve a club, It's more that Most of Huddersfield doesn't want one.

Unfortunately there is a lot of truth in the above statement.

Apologies if my previous posts came across as rather arrogant.I do not regard myself as somehow a better fan than anyone else on here,just frustates me the club don't get the support I believe it deserves.

Us the loyal fans will just have to soldier on.Like PG says therefore we must shout twice as loud as the opposition fans.

One concern has to be though that the franchise deal stipulates an average 10k home attendance.If the other Yorkshire clubs like Wake/Cas ever do get their new stadiums built,then attendance might become a more important criteria to the club that ends up getting the bullet from SL.Have to wait and see on that.

As for Huddersfield being a soccer town,I think that's unfortunately correct,though not sure if that translates into support for the local club Huddersfield Town AFC.There are those who believe at least half their attending support originates from such places as Dewsbury,Mirfield,Heckmondwike/Liversedge.The Giants don't get very much support from that area.I think the real winner in this town is televised premier league soccer.Many would rather follow the big clubs through that media than attend either code at the Galpharm.Granted though more Town will turn out for a glamour cup tie of the round ball game.

Must say though was disgusted with GB acusing me of having a half naked Eorl on my phone.Scott Grix maybe,bur Eorl no,I don't go for men with pony tails Wink

Extremely unlikely Cas and Wakey will both get stadiums built i wouldn't have thought, All the rest all makes perfect sense mate , I also think you are dead right about K Davy, he will walk away at some point, If it had been me i would have gone before now, Having said that he can not be totally blameless, he is the man that calls the shots at the end of the day, He went through all this nonsense with JS, so lets see what happens, Maybe he has not surrounded himself with the right quality of people, I don't know, We still have time to have a decent season but i would say NB's mind will now be at Saints.

It looks like Wakey are quite a bit closer to getting that stadium now. Wildcats move gets green light

Yes it does Matt and good luck to them. Hard as it has been to get as far as they have, the hardest part IMO is yet to come ,Raising the money will not be easy in the present climate, though o hope they are successful. If they are then i suspect it may well spell the end for Cas as a super league club, It sounds a bit harsh but that could ultimately be a good thing for the Giants, We need a proper Derby game, Halifax have not been one for many years now, It's possible but doubtful they would replace Cas as i think the RFL will want to develop the south of France more. If that's the case then Wakey would become our natural Derby which would be good for both clubs, All that of course is surmising that things go that way and the Giants are still a functioning outfit at Super league level.
