Until then, don't boo, toxic atmosphere, cant handle chasing a game, can't handle leading a game. Riley Dean's fault, it was also Toby King's fault but he got more games to make sure it was his fault rather than dropped and publicly shamed as a teenager.

Something something trained well, something dont go out to lose.

Clear?


Got it, thanks. I think they were handing out leaflets to that effect during the 445 stampede for the exits.

Looking on the bright side there will be more highlights on the sl show this week & we can marvel at Wire taking the lead for a few minutes at least.

We looked world beaters too while Salford were down to 12 men, so that’ll make it good viewing for the punter.

I'm really not happy with Powell pulling up Dean about the wigan game again! He was no worse in that game than any of our halfback since have been. I'd go as far as to say he provided a more effective kicking game than we have seen since. If he's going to drop players for a few bad plays or even for a bad game, he wouldn't have been able to choose 13 for ages.

There has to be more to it surely, has Dean refused to sign a contract or something? Or did he hit Powell’s car in the car park and leave, before it being seen on cctv later?

Really poor from Powell to name Dean saying his last game wasn't great. How many current players are poor week in week out and still get picked. I don't like Powells weird name and shame thing he does. But some players no matter how bad they play don't get talked about. I think he doesn't like Riley with the constant jabs at him.

The way Powell goes on at Dean makes me feel very uncomfortable for the lad I must admit.

I didn’t think there was anything in the original Dean comments at the time, but bringing it up again this week has changed my mind. There must be more to it. Not very professional to raise it in this way… if there’s an issue with Dean due to a fallout over something then just roll out the same excuse used for Longstaff rather than slating him over one game where the whole team were pants.

Is Powell too “old school” in his ways Re man management? Has the time not passed now with this next generation where the old hairdryer treatment maybe doesn’t work with everyone? Just a thought, but there’s surely got to be some flexibility nowadays in order to get the best out of the individual rather than the “my way or the highway” routine? I guess we’ll know for sure by this time next year….

I keep trying to make excuses in my head as to why we should at least see how he does next season after building a squad that he wants, but we still have world class players that can't all be just having a bad season.

Powell's style of attack is just not effective. Everyone stands in a line and we think that passing across quickly is somehow going to give us space on the wings. The attacking structure MUST change now. And we need an actual kicking game.

I'd have no problems with Powell going now and bringing in Tony Smith. I personally never wanted him or Price to go... and one thing a lot of fans cried about was maybe not being competitive or showing up in the big games, but the thing is, we did... People are forgetting that a 'big game' is a big game for a reason, because it's 2 quality teams. We can't always dominate a game but a lot of the times we were competitive against Wigan and Saints with both coaches.

With Tony Smith, he took over Leeds after Powell and they went from an average league position of 3.5 with 1 Challenge Cup win to Tony Smith with an average position of 2 with 2 Grand Final wins and 1 World Club Challenge. I believe it was Sinfield that said Smith was on another level of coaching.

We also had to deal with the loss of Sandow for 2017 which definitely had an effect on us. And I believe the inept Agar took over coaching that season.

Mike Bassett. Just feels like he is sticking 2 fingers up at the fans. But I have also said along I will give him next season.
