Well we busked it and hoped for the best last season after Wardy's departure .......................

Very true and if I recall the impression given was ‘the board’ weren’t impressed by the outcome. Still let’s try it again might work this time. As a precaution Eccles should be polishing his CV. He could well become the Lee Harvey Oswald in this scenario if we get relegated! Me I think half a year with a modest L1 squad and coach might have been a factor.

Brian McDermott is rapidly falling out of favour at Featherstone Rovers. Anyone fancy seeing him return ?
He would have his work cut out for him, that is for sure.

He failed us last time he was with us........talked a good game, but delivered nothing better than a series of bottom quarter finishes. No thanks.
EDIT:
116 games with 42 wins, 71 losses and 3 draws delivers a 36.2% win ratio. He delivered 9th, 9th, 11th and 13th place finishes and we never looked like troubling engravers of the Challenge cup either only making the QF in his first year.

Looking at the squad he pretty much inherited in 2007, 9th spot was a shocking return on investment.....shocking. Scott Hill, Henry Paul, Mark McLinden, Matt Gafa, Ron Purdham......

I’m increasingly of the view that we won’t get a new coach this season. It’s too deep in the season now and coach would have to work with what we have and be held accountable if things went badly. He wouldn’t be able to sign up any new players for next year because we are likely to be in a relegation dog fight right up to the wire and without certainty there is no way we could recruit effectively unless we plundered L1 again and surely all will now have realised that doesn’t work.

I have to agree. It looks like Mike Eccles is stuck with the job.

I hope at the end of the season he gets more appreciation than poor old Tom Tsang did

Yep, that would be my concern.

Acknowledging he’d left would be an upgrade on Tsang’s treatment. We are very erratic on announcing coming and goings. Dixon barely a mention, Battye a one liner, Williams contract extensions are mentioned as an afterthought. Juma came and went without mention in fact only the first tranche of Skolars players rated a nod and then there is Walker who did merit a post but is still not on the 1st team page on the website.

To be fair, Loubser can't be expected to do everything and he's really busy signing cheques for the rental agreements on 4 grounds now, not just the one as it had been before :wink:

To be fair Mike seems to be getting better performances out of the group than before. If that's his work or the dynamic of a coach being sacked and players reacting is difficult to gauge. Am with a few on this I reckon Mike is stuck with it until the end of the season
