Garry Schofield’s criticism of Hull FC has continued with the former player spelling out a 10-point plan as to why the Black and Whites could be in trouble in 2019
. Writing in his column in League Express, Schofield has taken out almost a full page to list a catalogue of reasons he expects FC to struggle
The war of words has now continued, with Schofield saying Pearson snapping at him is all down to the FC owner trying to cover up the fact FC fans agree with his critique, and that the FC chairman is trying to unite the fans by being up in arms against him like a panto villain.
Pearson, Schofield writes, cannot take criticism, with the columnist pointing to the fact last season’s conclusion angered Pearson so much he made a statement to the press

(https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/sport/r ... ck-1958525)

But, unlike many at FC who feel that the extensive injury problems last year were the source of the side’s downfall in a club record 11-match losing streak, Schofield says those who hold that belief have their head in the sand as he lists 10 reasons why FC struggled and will continue to struggle moving forward.
The former Great Britain star says Hull have made no top signings and the style of play adopted by the Black and Whites could 'put an insomniac to sleep.'
Having previously criticised FC's plodding forwards Schofield has now called many of them 'bang average' and says Jamie Shaul hasn’t progressed and is miles off an England place
Shaul isn't the only player singled out, with Danny Houghton not giving Hull any spark out of dummy-half a big problem for FC, says Schofield, while after criticising Marc Sneyd several times in the past there will be few surprised by the fact he thinks Sneyd should be dropped with Jake Connor and Albert Kelly in the halves.
Among the other points is that there’s no depth to the squad and a nasty toxic atmosphere which he says was present last season will return if FC lose the derby opener.

Has the original thread been deleted ?

Some of the Hull fans are embarrassing on Twitter. They are vowing to never read League Express again because of Schofield's article

Good article. Now up to the players to prove him wrong.Big motivational piece if used correctly by the club. If FC do get a good pasting first game up then will be interesting to see how the next month goes for them as looks a tough start fixturewise? Pearson could do a lot worse than take on board Schofield 10 points as an owner who knows and cares little about RL

Rovers fans get excited over nothing, I suppose after 30 plus years of no major trophy it's the best they can hope for.

Considering Pearson knows nothing about RL, he seems to be doing a decent job and has achieved more than most other SL owners in a short time.

I pretty sure he cares about Hull and RL, otherwise I'd doubt he would invest his money, he is hardly likely to earn money from owning a RL club is he.

Pearson should’ve done that first time around instead of replying. On this article neither he, Redford or any of the Hull players should comment on it publicly. Just stick that list up in the dressing room all year long and challenge the players to prove him wrong and show him up.

Any article written about Hull by Schofield, and likewise any criticism of Schofield from Hull fans, have to be taken with a pinch of salt. This feud goes back 30 odd years. Of course there are some fair points made, some utter horses***, and the usual heavy dose of bitterness. I'll try offer my opinion on his opinions:

1) - No top player signings / poor retentions - fair, my personal opinion is that Hull thought it'd be way more difficult to recruit from the NRL than it actually has been, and retained a couple of players too early.

2) - Style of Play - just a bitter opinion really, Kelly & Connor are fantastic to watch.

3) - Jamie Shaul not progressed and way off an England shirt - Codswallop, I thought last year he did improve, especially in his positioning and handling, and of course he did earn an England call up.

4) - Wingers don't get service without Sneyd, Fonua not adequately replaced - Codswallop. Faraimo 17 tries, Talanoa 14. Sneyd didn't play many games. Fonua got 14 & 11 in his two seasons (with a fit Sneyd).

5) - Sneyd is crap - Codswallop, double Lance Todd winner. We really missed him most of this season.

6) - Not much pace in team - Fair point, I'd agree.

7) - Too many bang average forwards - Fair to a degree. This is where I'd have made changes if I were Pearson. Watts not replaced. Bowden, Manu & Westerman barely played in 2018 all to come back.

8) - No creativity at hooker - Fair to a degree. Houghton had a quiet one by his standards last season. Litten to get more game time in 2019.

9) - No depth - Codswallop. We've signed an additional 6 squad players for 2019 to mitigate against the issues we had in 2018.

10) - Nasty, toxic atmosphere - Codswallop. I've seen nothing come out of the club to suggest this, bad attitudes stemming from poor form and nothing to play for at the back end of the year, certainly.

We've had this discussion already. It's been put to bed.

There were some rather nasty allegations made in the previous attempt which were almost the subject of legal proceedings being taken against the site. Now unless you're going to fund any legal proceedings against the site I'm not going to take the risk of those false accusations being made on here again.

I'm also aware it's being discussed elsewhere but there's no threat to the site on that particular thread at the moment.
Move on, nothing of any significance to read here.
