Why is it now self entitlement, when you yourself justify this rebuild by the predecessors team beating these teams and therefore a relegation battle is necessary so we can actually then complete with them? You have said that a team finishing 3rd and getting knocked out of the playoffs or cup by Cas, Salford and Hull KR means that this is necessary. So surely the end product of this rebuild is to compete and best these teams? Otherwise what is it for?

You’ll point at the volume of changes as mitigation, but this was manufactured by the coach, it’s all by design. So why can’t we expect to compete with them? We’ve signed players from Catalan and Wigan, we’ve signed current NRL players. Add that to the group of hand picked players that he will have worked with for 12 months at the start of next season, why should 5th be acceptable?

The coach has picked the squad in its entirety, aside from Currie, Clark and Mulhearn. The coach has picked the coaching team. We have exceptional training facilities, a strong reserve team and academy.

This isn’t entitlement, it’s what the board should expect as a return for the investment. I’m not saying that we must win everything, not at all. But we should be competing with these teams. If not, then the project has failed, as the club will have regressed.

Your point in itself is contradictory. Wigan’s coach has been in post for the same amount of time as Powell, and is similarly resourced. Leeds have a newer coach, and are similarly resourced. So why can’t we compete with these? We are at the same or further advanced in our project, are we not?


Are you seriously saying that its self entitled for us to expect to win 2 cc finals, and 3 1st round playoff games against lesser resourced teams? Seriously? Are you seriously making that comparison to the teams some are expecting us to overtake next year as a god given right?

The board and the fans brought Powell in to make the changes. Some players wouldn't play ball so there were more changes.

Do you seriously believe that a newly assembled squad has an expectation to outcompete teams with similar resources, who are already established at the top end of the table, with good coaches and settled players, within such a short time frame. Eventually yes, but it'll take midway through next season, at least, for the additional new players to bed in.

I've got other things to do, like watch Liverpool on the box. Looking forward to witnessing some proper club support.

Happy to be banned for life to get away from his laughable and insane posts.

Powell is a prick as well.

If you're a spolit brat and constantly moaning on here, and you think I'm a prick...then brilliant. I'm doing my job. And I'll continue. I'm not standing by and having my club shamed by the self entitled dog poop on here.

Gaz it might help if you refrain from answering every post and to similarly all those calling Gaz out let's widen the debate a bit it's a self fulfilling prophecy that things will get over heated when the focus is on one thing/poster. I'm all for free speech but there is some terrible posting on here ATM no matter what side of the argument you are on.

Please smarten it up or we'll be in a lock fest

Never said god given right, or anything of the sort. I said that the team was competing with them, has had signing investment to take the club to the next level, so right to expect to compete again. It’s not self entitled, it’s doing the job that he was brought in to do.

The changes have been made, we have a new hand picked squad, conceded 30 points 4 weeks in a row despite not conceding 30 once last year. Tangible regression.

I believe Powell was appointed to take the club forward, in doing so, we should be competing with these teams. Yes. I don’t want to draw comparisons again, but in 2010 after the last bad apple brigade, we finished third. So it can be done.

Enjoy the football. Give us all 90 minutes off from your contradictory nonsense.

And whilst I've typed my hopeful message there we go.locked.

Anymore of this schoolyard chat and people will be put in detention and be taking a break from here

I'm sure that I'm not alone in stating that I'm absolutely fed up with it and as for the bad language save it for somewhere else
