we can only hope it gets better next season, or I will have lost the habit of going to watch rugby, and with a young family that could be it, end of. Lets hope that the Farleigh family can come out fighting next season and actually score some tries.
As a long time Glos fan,can I join you all on this thread and say over and over again "Thank god its over!" It grieves me that you finished above us on points difference, though its tempered somewhat in the kowledge that we at least did manage to achieve the double over Bath this season!! Roll on next season and a new start. We've heard that before!
As one whose glass is always half full I feel that
it can only get better!
Deep in the gut there is a feeling that we are owed something for next season having suffered so much through this.
It is the right thing to replace the coaching staff - this can only bring new ideas and inspiration. Hopefully!
My only hope is that everyone concerned at the club gets out of there comfort zone - maybe the Farleigh experience has proved too much of a soft option.
That truly was a shabby season, and we've had some rubbish over the last few years.
The only silver lining for me was that I didn't renew my season ticket this year and so saved a bit of cash (not through any prescience of mine, just family life getting in the way). Can't think of anything on the pitch that qualifies.
I hope the team that takes to the field next year, has a coach with a clear plan (and that includes how to attack), and show some pride in wearing the shirt.
I want a decent excuse to make the 5 hour round trip next year!
Agree with you there Bathmad, You've left out Nathan Catt, who looks good, and certainly played a massive game today, Castro had him on a number of occasions but Nathan held his own and adopted, to the wily @#$%&.. Also coming up we have Kane palmer Newport, of whom I see massive potential, Kyle we clearly haven't seen to his fullest yet and bringing him on for the final ten seemed a little pointless today, he was eager however and had one carry right at the end where he was massively taken out, but rolled out of it and up and running, Banners looked sharper than i have seen him recently, it's been a long season for him and he needs a good rest..Today my standout player has been Carl Fearns outstanding tackling, 100% up for it and looked good..
