Do they have undersoil heating at the Madstad?

I guess being built on top of a rubbish heap might suit Mr Edwards.

He was at the game Saturday,so all these movements must have been in the pipe line a while.

Seeing as we've just signed 4/5 coaches we obviously don't/ didn't need him. When it was mooted on these boards a couple of months ago before he re-signed with Wales that he was coming our way the consensus was "no thanks".

Happy with what we have but good luck to him.

I think what we got excluding Ford,is a outstanding coaching set up and one we are very lucky to have.I would have thought that the club wouldn't have wanted both Ford and Davis but Brad as a year to run and I would have imagined Gold insisted on Ford coming.Just my guess.

Brian, with that in mind, it gives Brad a year to impress GG, which I am sure he will.

May the best man win!

If you are good enough you will win. No more fluffy protected environments for coaches and players alike.

Paul,I agree,their is only on problem,Ford is coming as defence coach and Brad is going to be attack coach a position he as proven not to be very good at.

Maybe he was spread to thin last season Bri given the time SIM spent in the office? A dedicated responsibility to work on, a clear idea of gameplan options and given the amount of time he spent with Smee makes me feel a lot more POSITIVE for 2012/13!

I am not in a glee club

I have never spoken to BC or NB

I am not a Bath employee

I did hear Hooper at the Fans Forum say that Leeds were relegated and then got a reprieve and ended up the next season at 5th.

I look forward to seeing a fit, rested and healthy squad particularly Mr Donald.

I am very positive for next season

09 May, 2012 19:12 seem to have Glaws man swears he saw Smee at the club last week. Any truth in this rumour?
Sadly if it were true I think he would do very well with that backline. I just hope it was a lookalike and was in fact the cleaner!

See how he does at Irish! Could make things a bit lively mid table!

P.S. (Sm2)Glaws can't be that desperate, can they?
