Quote from Fax Head coach
“We are in the ‘working at it’ stage at the moment.
9 rounds into the season and this is his mantra. What the ****.
Seems he had to fall back onto a halfback paring that has some speed and guile to deliver the goods again this week.
What's he gonna do Thursday if his favourite son is not fit? start with a half back paring that is gelling?
You don't want to forecast injuries, but is that not a coaches job to have a plan b,c,d, to revert to at all times not just when the needs must?

To be fair to Marshall, of course we are working at it. Things haven’t gone as well as we had hoped, confidence has been low as a result, so we have to work our way out of it, like any walk of life when things aren’t rosy. The half back pair looked good in the 2nd half, although we had still scored plenty in the first. Other difference was we decided to tackle better in the middle after half time, together with Hornets giving penalties away at will. JWH was very good with ball in hand and a threat all game, has got a great step and the strength to push a man off - 3 good tries from him. Agree we need to see them go again, maybe against sterner opposition where we might need to respect possession more and play six and kick. I think the only time we got to a kick, Barber made it

What can you expect when our pre-season didn't finish until four games in?

Let's not get carried away.... Rochdale are easily the worst side in this league and they still managed to score more points yesterday than they have versus any other team in this league.... Marshall is merely running down the clock and this is the side hes assembled by spending the most he ever has whilst at Fax. I cant see many victories in the next few weeks, which could mean the season has gone just after Easter...

Time for a change now IMO before it's too late both from a league perspective and more worryingly a financial one

A new coach for one who knows and can see the areas where we are poor and lack nouse. For me give the role until the end of the season to the guys who already take and set most of the training without any guidance from RM. At least then they're in charge and can try salvage something from this year whilst there is still a club to salvage

@ Chris smith quote "For me give the role until the end of the season to the guys who already take and set most of the training '
Are they not they guys taking the orders from R M as to what he wants from training, set plays and the like?

Throughout Marshalls tenure, the 3 clubmen, Tyrer, Murrell and Kaye are undroppable irrespective of form.

RM gives no orders and hasn't set any training for a while. He doesn't do many (if any) of the HT or pre game talks. Players are frustrated by his lack of input and just want to get on with the job which is hard when your not paid to do that.... Get rid and give them some clarity so the season isn't lost

So you're saying give the role to people who are, according to yourself, running the training and are therefore by default, responsible already for the poor performances???
