I've never felt our players aren't committed to the cause, they just aren't good enough.

One thing I can see that may give the impression of little commitment is the lack of chasing of our kicks. Only Biggs ever seems to bother to do this.

FANS NIGHT AT THE REC...

Some already great feedback from those who were there and I too will add my highlights but not before I make the point, that it was great to meet up with fellow fans for a drink afterward where we debated our differing views with humour, honesty and with one common factor...respect for each other and we Love Bath Rugby

Everyone last night had the opportunity to turn up and ask the club a question or to comment and offer opinion.

The panel of Stuart Hooper, Nick Blofeld and Brad Davis, did not attempt to dodge one question, with the star performer in my eyes being the eloquent, intelligent and passionate Stuart Hooper. The trio represented exec management, players and coaching

Stand out to me, was that the club accept that things did not go well in relation to results on the pitch accept responsibility in certain areas, with Stuart Hooper being upfront and saying its not losing in the last 5 minutes that hurts, its the fact in the previous 75 minutes we put ourselves in a position that we could still lose and its just not good enough. The hurt was etched on his face and not because he has his 4th operation later today on yet an other broken bone.

I do believe that there still is ...we feel slightly sorry for ourselves, as in Wasps away etc but in fairness to Hoops he was not up for excuses but hard, harsh lessons " for the lads to learn from" for next season

Biggsy was well acknowledged for his commitment. Brad for his continuity under no doubt difficult circumstances.

Why do Leicester get it right season after season and we dont?...good question asked

Why have Exeter had an extraordinary season on a player pool that originates from the Championship? an other good question.

Why do we not score enough tries and what is our best combination at centre?

What is our recruitment policy? Is the salary cap fair, especially as was suggested by a questioner, if other clubs ignore and abuse the system?

NB refused to discuss the appointments of coaches but did confirm that the structure would result in an appointment of a Head Coach and other specialist coaches some time next week, after contracts were signed (not a DOR!) NB further stated, that Brad Davis was "integral to the new coaching set up"

Some hard questions that needed to be asked and in my opinion, straight forward answers in particular from Brad and Hoops

Yes a genuine fan questioned wether all the players were passionate, which was rebutted by both fellow fans and club but in fairness, the actual genuine point, that I believe he was trying to make was that the players seemed to play sometimes with a lack of confidence, which in truth I think that after some pretty bad defeats that probably they might have been.

Two comments I have...a Fans forum of 10 individuals IS a great idea and potentially positive. I would like to understand who this "outside source" appointed to set up the Fans Forum, what their point of reference is and who decides the structure and influence of the Fans Forum. With such qualified fans, on rugby knowledge, community, business, legal, communication etc...why not let the fans influence and decide the format of the Fans Forum as its meant to represent the fans?

It was acknowledged that there was a poor communication in the coaching side as to who was responsible for what. With the imminent appointment of a Head Coach responsible for ALL coaching there should be one person that the players, coaches and fans know is calling the shots. BTW I wonder if the new HC would really be happy for the Excec management of the club to be in the PLAYERS changing room before and especially after the game. I hope we get a strong personality as HC who takes exclusive control of matters on the pitch, leaving all match day issues to the management!

Some were sceptical and may not have turned up. Some who were cynical did turn up. There is a heck of a long way to go to improve matters on and off the pitch...last night was a GREAT WAY FORWARD IN BRINING A NEW GOLDEN ERA TO BATH RUGBY

Couple of good reports on last nights chat show. I would sum up the Bath coaching set-up and management as being reactive as opposed to proactive. It was mostly an exersise in trying to somehow justify what was a very poor season. This was a "fans" night not a time to attack certain players for what we see as a lack of committment on occassions. NB said that the new stadium would be up and running in 2015, I really must have mis-heard that maybe he meant the building process would be started then. Lots of plans for this and that to be put in place and you're left thinking why aren't these up and running anyway. BC is set to make some serious investment on the coaching side if last nights statements are true. Looking at probably two new players but it's very impotant that they fit into the "culture" of Bath Rugby. Bath appear not to be developing a style of rugby more of a "culture". Yet another "last chance" season approaching please, please the new boss must create something from the torpor that affects the players at the moment. Ultimate scary scenario is that they're doing the best they can.

It wasn't me, I wasn't there, and I haven't questioned the players passion this season (or any other that I recall), but why is questioning players' passion bad?

I think players will be less passionate than fans. Generally speaking fans will be dedicated to a club for at least the period of a player's career, probably many times longer. I think that most players accept that they won't play for thew same club their entire career and they are very likely not to play for the club they are passionate about. So I don't see how they can all be as passionate about Bath Rugby as we are, which offers a reasonable question.

I'm not saying there is anything to question about our players' passion for Bath Rugby, I'm sure they feel similar to every other player in the premiership, just that to write someone off because they questioned that seems a little harsh.

Less and less need to respond to the non engaging ultra negative consistent posts, which is great...

Far better was the chat before the forum started and immediately after in the bar, where fans, coach, club staff and Captain, fully engaged, with everyone having their sharing opinion,fans having their say and listening to each other, not always agreeing but respecting different views...

Apart from the coordinated staged opening when the panelists were asked questions by a club representative, the Q&A was interesting, far better than I expected and we were given answers to every question apart the most interesting...who is Head Coach

If anyone really knows....please forward to the ERE gossip centre as I along with everyone else, am desperate to know

I found yesterday evening very interesting too and was impressed with the panel and, as others have said, Hooper in particular who talked eloquently and strongly. It made it clear to me why the club selected him as captain and it struck me as a shame that we haven't heard more from him before, but then again he has probably had enough on his plate.

The overriding message I took away was that all concerned from the club yearn for consistency of personnel on and off the pitch and that will yield results more than anything. Exeter, Quins and Leicester were all cited for having this in spades and the result viewed by the panel is a tight-knit opposition on the pitch. How soon we will be in a position to call ourselves consistent in first team line-ups and feeling the benefits is the real question. we may have to be patient for another season I feel, but hopefully we can expect more from the next season than from this one.

I was also interested by Brad's comment that no-one has been coached to stop playing an off-load game, its more that some of our best off-load players of the past aren't with us (what he didn't say, but I was thinking is that Banners also hasn't been right in the mix this season as he has always been an entertaining offloader IMHO). However, that also suggests that unless any of the new recruits fit that bill we shouldn't expect a return to that style of play any time soon which would be a shame.

Overall though a positive experience. And for those interested (Probably no one)I got a phone call beforehand from Jez, the compare, offering me a free drink in lieu of my 2 booking fee that they had been unable to re-fund! I am now totally embarrassed that this ever came up, especially as I pointed out to Jez that I have now received a bank statement and there is no sign of it anyway, so I politely declined. Good to see that they are very keen to keep the supporters happy though, but only the players on match day can really ultimately deliver happiness, let's hope next season will be a great one.

I think as I questioned wether it was right for the CEO to be in the players changing room before and or after a match might be wrong and to leave on field playing matters to the players and coaches...that NB will be withdrawing the offer of tea.

"How soon we will be in a position to call ourselves consistent in first team line-ups and feeling the benefits is the real question"

I would love to know if - statistically - we have suffered more from any other team for injuries and unavailability - ie the aspects of consistency that cannot be controlled.

Many of the aspects of consistency of line-up appear to me to be due to form, performance and selection - not necessarily 100% controllable, but certainly not something that can be dismissed as bad luck.

I guess it's a case of trying to create a squad of 30+ players, all of whom can slot seamlessly into the team. I'm sure that's what the most successful clubs must aim for. It's not realistic to aspire to field the same 22 week in, week out.

That is a question I would have asked. NB seems to talk about rugby and on pitch matters far too much. He should leave that to the people he's paid to do that. Imagine how annoyed coaches must get if their CEO is talking about players and playing style to the press. Have noticed this happening throughout the season and NB needs to stop it.

I got the impressions yesterday that there is a feeling that there needs to be a lot more joined up thinking within the Club, therefore NB has to take an active interest in a lot of areas to make sure that things like recruitment are working, so he talks a lot about being involved in all areas - but I don't think he goes in to the changing room to discuss the game plan.

However, there was a lot of talk last night about the similarities between a Rugby club and any other business and I'm not sure we all bought into all the detail of that.

I have reflected overnight on the question about passion and another question "two commentators on ESPN (I assume Healey) and Sky (I assume Barnes) believe Bath are overcoached", and finally another question "why do we seem to kick away possession so much".

I believe that the three points are linked. The players, and indeed all of us, when things are not going so well, revert to a safety first/reduced risk style of play/work approach/life.

This looks like they are playing formulaically and lacking in passion it also means that it is "easier" to kick a ball down the centre of the pitch because then they are not taking a risk - AND CANNOT BE BLAMED.

If they were to pick the ball up and have a go and then get caught and isolated giving away possession or a penalty they would be blamed.

So for example Bendy's run from his own 22 to set up Biggs and eventually Claessen for his try would not happen without someone occasionally prepared to "have a go". The reality is that Bendy could have hoofed that ball into touch on the 10 yard line and no one would have blinked. As it was he did the unpredictable thing, in a game that by coaching has become very predictable and is all about reducing the risk.

As for making a big deal about the "offloading game" all this means "in my day" was not dying with possession. If I made a break and saw 3 defenders coming for me I would look around for support, if there was some then as I was being tackled I would pass the ball (this is now called offloading), if there was no one with me I would look to chip the ball, kick a grubber into touch or put a really high one up giving time for my team to catch up.

Why can't/don't players do this?

The alternative is to get tackled and hope not to have the ball ripped off you or hope not to concede a penalty for hanging on whilst your team - and of course the opposition all catch up.

The players have passion but they are not playing with flair/imagination and variety which is why it looks like they are not playing with passion.

I have absolutely no doubt the players play as hard as they can.

If we've replaced departing players who could offload with ones that can't/don't then in a sense that is akin to deciding not to play that style any more!

Its interesting to see what was said but in a sense this forum was left stranded in no-mans land. Having dispensed with two of the coaches and promised new ones, the poor performance of this season became a bit of a pointless discussion, whilst in terms of the future the inability to name the new set up made really informative answers about the future hard to give as well. As it stands I've not seen much to make me think I've missed out by not being able to attend - maybe the BRTV coverage will make it seem different.

We shall just have to wait and see what/who next week brings!

Yes, for sure, just at training for Melksham Girls last night - I'm more for that area of rugby where I can feel engagement and return for effort delivered rather than the Bath set up at the moment - the disengage is too big for me at the moment. The spin off of Bath Ladies as part of the club is not good IMHO.

I struggle with this one. In my job I have certain clearly defined responibilities, and considerable autonomy to get on and do them. My boss, the CEO, will frequently go to conferences etc, and tell the assembled audience about what I'm doing and why, although using the corporate "we".

I don't have the least problem with that, and can't see why it would be problem in a rugby environment either.

I think some of this idea that the business and rugby sides of the plc are separate dates from the amateur era, but it feels awfully archaic to me.

The CEO, and the owner, and the coaches, are all part of the same management team, not on opposite sides of the fence.

(Sm13)I know Bod is well able to defend himself, but he does have other commitments, as did I last night. Before anyone else has a snipe at him, most should pause and remember that they know little about him, his own private knowlegeable contacts within and about the Club, some of whose views are imvho barking, and also his active involvement in amateur rugby. If he didn't really care, he wouldn't bother to keep posting, and just lurk - like so many I know who prefer not to post but maintain a distance.
.................................................

Thanks for the reports. I think the observation that Bath have been over-coached and by whom is an astute, indirect but accurate assessment. I am alarmed to hear that non-playing mgt have frequently been in the Changing Room on match days - I do trust not at half-time, which might explain a few things. Maybe I am wrong, but its a bit difficult to disagree with the boss's assessment, and probaby if you are a player, not career enhancing!

Incidentally my comment about a lack of enthusiastism about a specially elected (sic)selected Fans Forum is that IMHO we are first and foremost ticket buying members of the public who avidly and enthusiastically believe that we belong to an entity called Bath Rugby. For comparison, if I had a season ticket at the Theatre Royal, I would not want to think that there was a committee of the audience deciding on how to run the Theatre, what shows to put on, how much to charge for icecreams etc. Please feel free to disagree - I may be forthright, but it doesn't mean I believe or am entirely right in my assumptions.

Relieved to hear that Brad's skills and experience (and he's had a few over the recent past) are to be retained, or perhaps we should say glad - he's decided to stay!!!

We used to have a Fans' Forum, it was called the Supporters' Club. As a member of the original committee I remember meeting regularly with David Jenkins and then Bob Calleja to discuss issues impacting on supporters. It worked well but over the years gravitated towards something different.

I also used to meet with Bob as the editor of ERE, often joined by others such as Coochie Coo, Optimist and Stir Crazy and Bob was very forthcoming. I similarly met with Nick Blofeld when I regathered the ERE reigns from Malco and Nick too was very open and forthcoming.

The reason I recount these experiences is to show Bath Rugby is very able to properly involve supporters who want a mature relationship and IMHO we should support Nick with is plans for a focus group of committed supporters.

We are getting a new coaching set up and I don't think anybody disagrees with that but I just don't see what difference that will make with the players we have.

You can have as many focus groups as you want but until we start getting some quality players we will be going nowhere (again!) next season.

Yes Glen, they were good meetings, but I think we are now into many more employees of the Club who have different ideas about 'customer match day experience', marketing, themes, brands etc. Nick Blofeld is not in the same style as Bob in any way - and that is not a 'value judgement' btw.

Perhaps not many people felt that way OB?

I think most Bath fans think we can do a lot better with the squad we have, and don't share your view.

Glen

I agree. If you are in any way involved, I am happy to volunteer to be one of the "Group".

Please PM me if interested.
