No complaints from me. best team won. and yes, we did bottle it. Again.

Defensively and coming out our own half we're pretty much bang on. as soon as we get to the 4th and 5th tackle in their 30 or 20 we look completely clueless. A high bomb to the corner on EVERY last tackle play will not win you the game. We've been asking and crying out for Roberts to take the line on all season, why did he suddenly decide that he has the ability to ghost through the line instead of passing the frigging ball on Saturday? Unbelievable. All Ratch needed was a bit of effort from literally anyone to be a support runner and we could have had that game. Grand finals are all about commitment and the 1% extra efforts. Wigan had that and we didn't. When it kicked off at half time we should have gone out in the 2nd half and murdered Escare for starting it, the cocky garlic eating surrender monkey.

Also, to the two delightful gentlemen sat behind me, who left with 15 minutes to go screaming how effing s*** we are... Don't come to a GF again if all you are going to do is slag the team off for the full 80 minutes. and then call all the Warrington fans around you deluded happy clappers for believing we could possibly win anything. yes you may be right in some respects but its quite annoying, everyone within 10m all said 'thank f*** for that' when you got up and left.

You had nothing to say and you said it too loudly.

Other than that and barring the result, had a great day out on the ale. I'll never get bored of seeing my team walk out at a final.

I think what I understand by “bottlers” is very different to what you do. I would say we largely played as we did all season (in fact in defence and penalties better) but we weren’t good enough. As I understand it , bottling is not performing to your potential due to pressure of the occasion.
Just my opinions unless it's a FACT, in which case it's a fact.

Bottlers lose 6 in a row, just sort Browns replacement, change the captain, use BMM correctly and we could be a great team to watch, again.

Overachievers in terms of reaching the Grand Final, most certainly. On Saturday we gave it our all but lost against a better team.

However, the Challenge Cup final at Wembley is where they bottled it. Better team than on paper, massively outnumbered their supporters, but the Catalans players just wanted it more.

Reckon we'll make one of the finals next season though - a chance to put things right.

i dont think we bottled it, we just weren't good enough... You cant fault the effort.

price has done very well to get us to 2 finals, when you consider the mess he was left with.

Brown and Roberts have to be one of the worst pairings in SL.... To get to 2 finals with those 2 in the halves, is nothing short of a miracle... Hopefully next season, we are going in with 2 new ones and around 3 or 4 new players in other positions as well.

While defeat was disappointing, i honestly did feel like we had a chance going into the game. So it wasn't a surprise at all...... Challenge cup final on the other hand :DOH:

Can't give you an argument the game in Wembley was a sorry affair indeed.

I think we have been void of ideas all season, yet somehow nearly pulled off something remarkable. great effort this year from the lads. Could of won the double.

that Catalans team then needed some beating. They wanted every game more than anyone.

Taking the meaning of the word bottlers as blowing a winning opportunity when in the ascendancy, or simply not turning up, let's have a look at the SIX consecutive finals we've lost, since Wembley 12.

GF 12 Leeds.
We got beat by a battle hardened team, who knew how to win games that matter, at the ends of seasons. Not bottled

GF 13 Wigan
Bottled it. Simples as. We blew a 14 point lead. As soon as they scored their first try, we were like rabbits in headlights. To blame injuries is just a smoke screen. Choked big style.

CC 16 Hull
One of the dourest games of RL it's been my misfortune to watch.. A shot at Sandow and an over the hill Gidley. Currie dropping the ball was just unfortunate. Not bottled. Poor halves.

GF 16 Wigan
Another of the dourest games of RL etc. Sandow on one leg. Not bottled. Poor halves

CC 18 Cats
Dreadful start. Catalans gave us enough rope to hang them. We could have stayed there all night, and not scored. Not bottled. Poor halves.

GF 18 Wigan
Opened them up, early on, then didn't try anything for the rest of the game. The worst Wigan performance in a Final in a generation. Not bottledd. Poor halves.

Are we spotting a trend here? POOR HALVES. Briers still hasn't been even adequately replaced. Rectify this, we stand a chance of winning something.

On other stuff.
I don't buy this we've over achieved this year nonsense. Price got a team that was littered with internationals. It's not like he's gone to a punch drunk Widnes, and got them to two finals. No-ones said Wigan have over achieved this year. They only scraped into last year's play offs in EIGHTH, a point better than us.
Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.
