I wasn't overly nervous going into the MPG, perhaps I'd accepted that we were poor and the club had prepared the fan base that we were going to target that one game early into the season. This season, the club up to only a few weeks ago were saying they were a top 5 side and not in a relegation battle. This lack of acceptance of the situation still has me much more concerned


The MPG versus Bradford had been a given for months. We knew it was coming, and were prepared for it.

The importance of tomorrow night's game feels like a situation we've sleepwalked into.

Nobody has sleepwalked anywhere, we've known we needed a bit more to be certain of safety for half a season ffsake.
This board might twitter on about a few close games earlier in the season that would have put us out of this situation, but yawl know we'd be out of that situation and doubtless be twattering on about sacking Chezzy, bagging players all over the gaff and dooming the crap out the team for not making the 5.
We get in the 5 and its the same 5hit3 for not being in the G Final.
There is...no end to this self deprecating rubbish...its pathetic.

Its really simple, half the team has been injured and we haven't been able to adequately negate all its effects.
All its effects, as manifested by our current position.
You can't discount the individual failings of players or staff, but by far the biggest factor is our financial ability to bridge 10 potholes in a row.
Who's fault is that, and what are you gonna do about it besides slagging the club off whilst phonetically jumping off a cliff.

The club has sleepwalker into it. Until very recently, they were still saying in interviews that they weren't concerned and were still a top 5 side. The club has failed to manage the expectations it set itself, and seems to have been unable to adjust those to line up with reality
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Managing expectations has nothing to do with this.
While top 5 was mathematically possible I'd still want them to go for it.

No matter what the expectation they were trying to win games.

Trinity will be fine but my blood pressure won't be.
I need us to be 30-0 up by 20 minutes to settle the nerves.

We are where we are because of our own mid season form but as our form improved the collapse of Catalans season and the two dishonest Saints performances v London have really given some of our rivals a big leg up.

Don't feel nervous one bit, I do expect us to win this game, for some reason it's not sunk in that we could go down as I still feel they have in in them to get the job done
