I just wanted to know what good will look like to you. I thought it was a reasonable question to start a discussion. My mistake.


I'll answer from my perspective:
Next year - good would look like:
1) challenging for the playoff spots instead of worrying about relegation battles
2) Making a decent stab at the Challenge Cup (Semi-final or better)
3) Seeing the East stand completed

If I'm honest there's only 1 of those 3 that I have any belief in sadly.

Long term - good would look like:
1) A good team built around our Academy products and supplemented with some real quality
2) Regularly hitting the playoff spots
3) A piece of Silverware

Tend to agree but probably moderate next year.
I'd be very happy with what you suggest but I'd be quite happy next year with mid table obscurity.
- Not in danger of relegation but consolidating a mid table position with more of the young guns playing.
- Competitive with every team.
- Move the ones on who don't want to play and replace with a bit of quality.
- Get an inspirational captain in place
- Stadium plans on track with East Stand all done.
- Financially in a good position so that if IMG bring franchising in we have a good case.

Wish for what you want but if we survive it will be the same. Old same old.
The club will need to have a total change in attitude and be prepared to try things from a different angle instead of offering the duff we have had for quite a few seasons now.
Its the entertainment business and the quicker the club realise that supporters need expectations to rise.
With what's in store over the next couple of years spectators will have to be enticed to attend.
I expect the club will look at things a total different way and probably reduce expenditure.

If we survive then like every recent season we start behind every other club. We are left to pick over what is left as per usual

The answer to your pointless question was obvious, none of the above. How we got here we all know and how we get out is anyones guess, but my only aim was to state a fact, it’s been another terrible season in so many ways. And I’m the one who needs to get a grip, yeah right :roll:

What's your evidence apparently some deals have been agreed but not announced. Obviously due to the current situation could and would impact on this just wait and see.

The issue is not "picking over what's left", its being able to attract players when the likelihood is that we will be battling against relegation, which renders any longer term contract irrelevant.
We have to find a way to get back to being a genuine play off challenger and not a side that can do no better than 10th in the comp.


IF we can get back to that position, better players will be more willing to come here.
Keeping our youth development at its current level (or better) is also essential if we want to progress.

If the rumours are correct, we're going to need to replace players in key positions. Persuading Fifita to play at BV for another season has to be near the top of the list.
I think we accept that Miler is going to Cas but, Lino to Wigan seems less likely. Let's hope he has a storming game this aft, to show them what they would be missing.

We could do with some real quality but, finding those players and persuading them to come to Trinity will be a hard sell.
