Quote: tomlufc "It's extremely insincere to pretend that Smith wasn't given more than ample time to try and make it work here. He was also financially backed more than any other coach in years.

The people who offered him unreserved support for far too long were the ones completely in the wrong, further enabling our mediocrity. Not the ones calling for Smith's head.'"


The thread is just a bit of lighthearted fun, it's a right of passage for any Leeds coach to have such a thread, calm down icon_wink.gif

Quote: KaeruJim "Yep totally agree with that.'"

My worry is that players with a chronic lack of attention to detail are always likely to replicate that behaviour under pressure. You can drill that kind of metronomic behaviour into kids but sadly some of our most senior players seemed to have their bad habits deeply ingrained. Will need to be some tough decisions re selection, retention, and recruitment made yet again.

Agree with this too. We are just so sloppy at times and you'd imagine if certain players were going to get the basics, they'd have them by now.

I keep see-sawing between thinking we just need 3 more key players, to wanting to change half the squad. I have defended RS to a degree on here but looking objectively, only McDonnell and Croft have been definite wins from all the recruitment he's done while at Leeds in my view, with honourable mentions for Miller, Ackers and Ruan. Hudson we don't know about yet. The rest either haven't worked or haven't progressed the team.

I rate Miller and think he will be better if the team performs better. Ackers is simply struggling with our lack of go forward I’m hoping if BA can get some discipline and get the team playing more direct Ackers will benefit hugely.

I'm not sure bombarding him and trying to exert pressure on him to stay with endless questions about extending his stay after the end of the season is the right way to go in his first press conference. Let the fella settle in !!

It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.:1157.jpg

They all will, this is one of the biggest fundamentals of RL, you have to go forwards before you go wide, it’s why Newman is also struggling so much this year, he’s getting the ball and basically being told “here, pull off a miracle play for us” when we should be working to create space to launch him into. This was one of my biggest frustrations with the way the last coach wanted to play the game, it was never viable not even prime Melbourne Storm could have done it.
