I'd be prepared to let Hodgson have another year if there were signs of progress but 8th last year and probably 8th or 9th this year is just unacceptable.

Everyone agrees that we have not got a cat in hells chance of winning anything soon but with our resources a play off place should be the minimum goal.

It's just not working and I can't see any improvement next season. His recruitment of high earners has been poor as well.

Of course players are equally to blame but those who are underperforming have a year left on their contract. We are not in a position to pay them all off so it'll be cheaper to replace the coach.

You get players who are signed as projects and Hodgson as a coach is in that same bracket. There was nothing on his CV other than being an Aussie and a top class player to suggest he would be successful.

The sense of frustration and disillusionment is as bad as the last days of Agar. I'm not surprised that fans who have supported the club through thick and thin are deciding not to renew their memberships.

Radford stayed on to long but there was always the hope that he could turn things around as he brought us success a couple of years before.

I admire Pearson as he has overseen some good times at the club during his tenure but has made errors as well. Not replacing the coach will be his biggest one yet.

Other clubs manage to sign quality halfbacks and we get these two. Can't blame the Radford-clique for that.


Salford do particularly well on the recruitment front season after season, the likes of Croft, Hastings, Lafai etc, they're good at finding players that want to prove a point

I really dont understand this misplaced loyalty that some fans and particularly the club are giving Hodgson
I understand fans frustration at players seemingly giving up but Griffin and Taylor have been doing it all season without action so what does the coach expect when others follow on mass.Players have to respect the coach and i think they unfortunately have lost respect for him.
Hodgson is the catalyst because he is the coach and no one can deny that his recruitment for the club has been less than poor. Not one player he has signed could you say has enhanced the teams performance.
Mitch was signed by Hodgson but he was probably recommended to the club for a trial rather than Hodgson bringing him in.
Every club at some time will sign a dud but this coach is in a league of his own when it comes to duds.
Really cant see the point of keeping him on.Would be far better to start a new season with a disciplinarian at the head even if we took a chance with a UK coach

Listening to paul rowley on sky
He’s exactly the type of coach we need.
Man management skills , knowledge of the game too. His explanations of how teams set up etc absolute spot on.
Hodgson is a clever rugby man but I think his weakness is his man management.
As a player he’s been there done it got the t shirt. Half the battle is getting the players to buy into his game plan

That's the point at our club we bring in lost souls that just need that chance, I think part of the process at Salford involves asking the player if he wants to play for us, we can't afford to get it wrong with a limited budget, usually they have something to prove either to themselves or former clubs, the likes of Croft and Hastings are well documented but did you know Lafai was without a club in the NRL after Parramatta released him. Dupree and Cross from Widnes Deon Cross came as a squad filler and hasn't missed a game all season with the winger turning into a quality centre.

We had the mercanries when MK was here they all came for the dollar, no thanks give me players who waant to be here, we'll leave the mercanries to the likes of Dire and Shudds.
The fans, the members, the people there.. from the day I stepped foot onto that field at the AJ Bell Stadium,I knew I would love that club for the rest of my life. "Jackson Hastings"..



Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.

having a chariman who has a endless cash supply helps, something we don't

still paying for poor signings from Radford and Hodgson, Pearson can only pay so many off

Ken Davy has pumped loadsa money into Hudds. with very little reward, a real fan but AP has managed the club on his budget and had genuine success and yet AP is vilified by some and one poster in particular who hates centres in general :CRAZY:
He’s going around and rebuilding yet again, thank god he’s here. Hopefully next season’s new look team may be the one. I’ll renew my passes yet again and hope against hope it lots of jam today with my crust. Still going to pub and chippy tonight though :lol:
