Come on, Wire

Our halves create NOTHING. Buck your loving ideas up

Refereeing beyond bent, re Tomkins.

Wigan are no better than us. Big 40 minutes.

Come on.
Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

The worst set of "halves" since Tommy Rawlinson and Mick Blacker, on a dark Wednesday evening in March 83.

Beyond appalling.
We paid a huge transfer fee, for one. And a "marquee" signing fee for another.

We might as well have had the Chuckle Brothers there, and one of them is dead.

The other 15 tried .

Hard luck, Wire

You know what? I’m not.

Unlike our dear sister-loving friends at redvee, I won’t let my snap, post-loss comments bemoan a wasted year but will say, given where we started in February, with a new coach off the back of the middle eights and two crappy half-backs, we’ve massively overachieved and are way ahead of schedule. That was a huge game tonight, very physical from the off. Ratch tried his damnedest to unlock it for us but was, once again, sadly let down by the 6 and 7 who really ought to be the generals.

Couple of dodgy calls, such as ball steals and good old ambiguous Tomkins fouls but aside from that we weren’t blown away. We matched their big men. We had at least three opportunities on their line but couldn’t get over. We had all the momentum at that point but didn’t scare Wigan. For a while it looked like it was all just operation ‘get it to Lineham’. Zero guile or skill in the final 20. THAT is what needs to change for 2019. For the love of God I wish Kevin Brown was leaving. Contributed nothing aside from that left side pass that went to ground.

Roll on next season.

Yep no shame in this season. It's clear we are short of some quality in key areas of the field. We came out completely flat in the 2nd half and had nothing to trouble Wigan in attack. No complaints - best team won.

At least it wasn't a bottle job. Pretty much everything else can be put right but self doubt's a nightmare. Ask Cas.
"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

“Leeds just wander around looking like they’re doing nothing” (Jon Wilkin)

"Jon Wilkin's tight pants and coffee shop have not helped him to see the bigger picture or allowed him to get a firm grip on reality." (leeds owl)

Dear god, Wigan were utterly rubbish with the kind of completion rates, error count and missed tackles that should have ushered us to victory with ease

But why, why did we go into our shells so much? We.defended stoutly for the first 10 then produced a sublime attacking.move, scored from it and promptly failed to repeat it, or even attempt to for the rest of the match. Even with the game still there for the taking in the last 15 mins we refused to chance our arm.

Yes, halves were totally anonymous but Stef (who was excellent) aside there was very little spark anywhere.
