Couldn’t bring himself to give the truthful answer, very sad.


so to be clear.....a long time fan of the club doesn't take a positive from a professional full time side managing to win a game in the last 5 minutes against part time opposition? In a season where we've shed not only 70%+ of our fans as well as the only shining light we had in our coach? Where the club have now had to resort to flogging tickets at huge discounts to save themselves from another embarrassing crowd.
The Reality is that if we'd lost to Oldham, we'd still probably have made the play offs, only to travel up to the shay to get spanked by another part time outfit...so the truthful answer is, very few people care either way any more.....very few.

You're not the hard core loyal fans....you're lemmings and the cliff edge awaits

and to be crystal clear .........Just because my message wasn't popular some 19 years ago, doesn't mean it wasn't 100% spot on...in terms of where the London Broncos currently sit as well as where the game in the UK finds itself..... too many blinkered fools who tut loudly and consider themselves knowledgeable hanging around the sport whilst other "lesser" sports have stolen a march.
But you slag off yet another London Broncos supporter who, by the sounds of it, has had enough!
You stupid few who remain massage the ego of an aging oligarch who refuses to admit he f^^^^^ed up the club.....

I agree with the comment about "this is how far we have fallen"

I cannot see any reason we can be pleased about the win. Yes, a wins a win, yes the players showed a bit of character and fight but this is just papering over cracks.
In a dream world, the club have just tried to get through this season, affected by Covid. Young squad, players getting game time and sorting g a new ground. Next season we see a new coach, some depth and experience come into the side and dare I say a bit of marketing. We have a side that can genuinely challenge and maybe 1400/1500 fans.
My expectation is no new coach, a young part time squad fighting to keep their head above the relegation places, playing in front of 200 fans.

I honestly fear for this weekend. I also, as much as it guts me to say it, do not miss going.

OM I think your first post is spot on save:
A) I’d add the words “try to” in from of “save themselves from another....” as it’s pretty clear the crowd will be poor. I can confirm my son won’t be going so that’s the children attendance down by 25%.
B) on a LB only fan forum you last para is unnecessary. The point has been made before.
Your 2nd post doesn’t add anything substantive just raises the heat. We’re all frustrated but I suspect it’s this type of post that other long term fans take issue with. I’d stick to the more constructive, less barbed, posts but then again if you can’t have a good old argument on an Internet forum when can you?

Did anyone on this forum go to the game? Was it really as mediocre as it sounds? Are any of the younger players stepping up? I had a think about going but then I thought I’d save myself for the quality fare I know we will produce against TO.

I say obviously. It’s possible that knowing the crowd size, they may not bother with food or opening the bar.

How disappointing. You said you were looking forward to the quality fare, I assumed you'd heard we were putting on a good spread for the Frenchies. :(

I was thinking more of the on field fare in my original post but I can see how the food is a more interesting discussion point.
