Asbo is off to Coventry to help their push for the Championship. Never let us down and I am happy I'm off to Irish to say tarrah!

I think a key issue is the brush brought in many who underperformed and have took big wages to sign them. We've lost some great talent who wanted to stay and not necessarily a lot of money

I feel there is something going on behind the scenes which will reduce us to a part timeproffesional club like some of others in the Championship. If I am wrong and we go up we haven't got the players to compete and who is going to join us. Tired old journey men who are in it for a season and as much as they can make. Also our results will make Bristol this year look tremendous

I suspect we will hear what's in store once the season is done.
Interesting to find out who we are bringing in whatever league we are in.

The situation Carnegie are in mirrors that of last season and as pointed out at a Fans Forum means they are following a two option model for whatever comes next year as a result of the play-off conclusion.
What we are seeing now is a demonstration of what another season in the Championship might bring as opposed to the Premiership option which will obviously mean wholesale changes and a largely unrecognisable squad next season.

Although I hope for a positive outcome over two legs against the Exiles my head says we are sticking with the Championship!

Rocky has hit the nail on the head in his post above.

Can't help thinking that as soon as play offs are over and we're consigned to the Championship again there's a big announcement coming....but it won't be good news.

Management has a lot to answer for.

Secretly I don't think the management don't want us to go up. It would mean them having to find she'd loads of money to pay for players, poor home attendency. The visitors will supply most.
I believe plans are in place for us to be a placement club with Bath and anything else would spoil it.
Will be watching it from turkey on mobro

No, I can't see that. It's the exact opposite of Geechs stated vision for the club.

I think we want to go up but just haven't had the correct leadership to make it happen.

Suggestion on Rolling Maul that we are acquiring Joe Buckle, the Jersey hooker. At least something seems to be happening behind the scenes. I expect more light will be shed after next week's game.

If I had all the money I've spent on drink ..... I'd spend it on drink.

Reading this back, we have just lost an experienced, loyal, passionate hooker as we couldn't or wouldn't offer him a contract and now we are looking to sign another?

Fair weather DoR - showed his pudgy face at both Ealing play offs. But not post match at HC semi - still no one did for that one.

Anyone know what has happened to Andy Saull? Sadly for both Andy and us his potential has not been realised over the past two years, though I have never seen a lack of effort or commitment. A few injuries have not helped.
Nice bloke, hope he finds a good opportunity elsewhere.

Do we get to keep Chris Elder? His recent video contains complementary comments about the Club/the City/the set up etc. May still be being honest but as for staying?

He also states he is travelling up and down, so maybe, as was suggested when he came, he had a Prem. deal lined up even before he joined us. His displays here have certainly not hindered his chances.
Still Georgiuou and Prell can cover if he does go. Oh, hell, I forgot, they've already gone!!!

Surprising. Possibly the only thing he could blame the board for is appointing Redpath and Lowes in the first place. Others no doubt feel differently, but I never thought they were right for the job just as I never thought Andy Robinson would do anything at Bristol.

Leeming, unsure which twitter mate you are referring to as i never followed the thread, if it was the welsh one he blocked me long ago :>winking smiley

I find it very difficult to comment as i bought into the Yorkshire/Geech vision and had no idea about the structure/management of the club beforehand,

my only reference points having played against Leeds back in the day and watching the bore draw against sale one gloomy Friday night back in the premiership days,

Have a great deal of sympathy for everyone who follow the club on here or Twitter, and share their frustrations, but as someone who doesn't make a great deal of money and needs to be careful where my hard earned dosh goes, i cannot and will not commit to buying a season ticket or the future of the club while being kept in the dark,

Find the whole situation sad and fear the worse going forward which is a great shame,

wishing for all home games under lights on a Friday and a competitive squad to finish at least 2nd again, but have no wish to hear the words "it would be nice to do well in the B&I cup" and "we will take it on the road again"

sadly i dont think any of my wishes will come true

Gareth was really upset, as were most of us. His Tweets were harsh but answers are needed.

Gareth is one of a few trying to keep Yorkshire Rugby in the public eye and is very passionate about supporting it.

I don't get to HC as much as I would like however, still love the club (despite them letting Phil go)!

Wish we had our own ground.

Brush having the gall to say players lazy in training and not executing stuff well - little $h!. What's his and the coaching team's job then? And isn't any team only as good as the coach/es?

I was fuming when I saw that and still am this morning.

I agree Gel, Brush had lost a lot of my respect during the year and that dig got rid of any that was left. Promotion was his job, he had the money and the freedom to recruit and he failed...simple.

He was our defence coach, our defence has been @#$%&.

Good riddance, shame his management and decision making has cost us so many players who would have stayed if it wasn't for him and his choices.
