Powell

Post by frainthepain » Fri Sep 11, 2020 2:39 pm

A defeat to Hull in the Cup this week could be the last straw for him as far as I am concerned.
How many more squads can he bulid or how many crocked Australians can we let him sign continuously with us constantly coming up short?

His record in big games is terrible for us ands it's the same year in year out

I think the club would be mad to let him go.

I agree.

I think with better backing Powell would be in the running to win everything in front of him, but with limited funds we're never going to rival the likes of Warrington/Wigan etc. Not all about the money on the pitch, but to build a squad for the future we need to entice the young and with the poor facilities on offer we'll always struggle getting them through the door. We harp on about not bringing through the youth but what if the ones we get simply arent good enough?. If DP goes then what?

Be a huge loss if he went.

Has had us punching above our weight from day 1.

Much was made of Wires injuries yesterday but if I bet of you added the salary of the 2 17's who played yesterday there wouldn't be much difference.

We compete with teams who have far bigger budgets and Powell is one of the main reasons.

We over achieved big time in 2017, which I think lulled Cas fans in to a false sense of us being a better team than we are. We now seem to have this entitlement (me included) that we should be beating everyone and anyone.

Powell has taken some very ordinary blokes and made them cracking players mind.

It would be stupid to let Powell go, who exactly replaces him? No one can replace Powell and we should try and hold onto him as long as possible. The person behind the account of Frainthepain is a trouble causer and I have seen him post absolute rubbish a few times. Our squad will have a huge overall next season with comings and going’s to be announced in the not too distant future.

It's one of them were you moan about this and that but after one week of him leaving it would be like gulp where do we go from here it would be downwards at a rate of knots

The biggest problem for Powell is his ability to get the best out of ordinary players. The result sees the Club buy the less favourable players in the hope he will work his magic on them.

He has always had the ability to do this, and probably always will, so he's still the man for me at a club like ours.

A few poor ref decisions and some missed chances cost us last night, neither of which Powell can do anything about.

He’s got lots of credit in the bank for me.
However, if he does move on the likes of Watson and Ward are excellent coaches who would do well at the club.

The biggest problem for me is, when Powell turns run of the mill players in to good SL players, ultimately contracts and wages get bigger and we are seeing time and time again, certain players getting improved contracts then stagnating. Powell must be wondering where the hell some of these lads from 2017 have gone!

Powell is good, he's very good and 10 other SL teams would have him tomorrow, i'm sure of that.

People saying we’ve stagnated well without DP we’d nose dive I’d rather stagnate then go back to pre Powell days

If we had the quality of Gale and Hardaker in the team playing how they were that season some of them players would look better again

No doubt Powell has turned Cas around but he is the one who picks the team and to pick players who are not playing well is wrong. The top 4 clubs are progressing and we are going backwards. He would also re shuffle the entire team if 1 position is missing as per Trueman and I just dont get why he cant use a younger player. He should have another half back at the club to cover 6 & 7 if hes not prepared to play a youngster. Maybe its out of his hands with the money situation. I think if we loose on Sunday he will question himself and maybe move on. Let's face it we've won no silverware apart from the hub cap and been off form in every game that's meant something.
