      Is the continued underperformance of Team Bath due to the low conversion rates of their shooters rather than poor coaching? Whilst it’s not nice to pin this on individuals is it a fact that you need two 90%+ shooters to win matches at this level when the rest of the team are performing adequately?

        There’s a lot of confident talk from the head coach about Bath having shown a consistent improvement. Whether they have or not will be tested in two matches to come, Cardiff Dragons, whose form seems to have declined, & Strathclyde Sirens who have been on a par with us all seasons. If we cannot win either or preferably both of those that improvement will be unproven.

          Re. Team Bath – I suppose expressing doom & gloom gets you nowhere but the endless positivity expressed by Stacey Francis whilst losing every match, bar one, is hard to take. Surely a fresh coach needs to be appointed next season, one who can get some improvement out of these players.The comment is continually made that they are a very young & inexperienced team but is that really the case compared to all their rivals?

            Another comfortable defeat for Team Bath. The purpose of a coach is to improve players’ individual & collective performances. This is just not happening at Bath judging by the results.

              Another dire performance by Bath. They surely can’t wait for the season to end & have a reorganisation of the coaching staff to give them any hope whatsoever next seaso.

                Surprise, surprise Bath have lost again. This time we were demolished in the first half by a team one place above us. The fact that we only lost the 2nd half by one point is construed by the head coach as a success. She keeps saying that too many mistakes are being made. Surely the data will indicate who is making most of the mistakes so surely it’s time for the culprits to be left out. Difficult to do, of course, if they’re spread evenly throughout the team!

                  If you look at Bath’s lineup is it that much worse than most of their rivals. They have had comings & going over the last few years but so have many other teams who are doing better. It seems likely that the current coaching setup is doing a pretty poor job.

                    It seems clear that there are just two teams well off the pace & trying to avoid the wooden spoon this season & they are Sirens & Bath. I don’t know why Bath continue to struggle so badly as they have some seemingly good players. Surely a change of head coach must be on the cards for next season?

                      Another 25 point defeat. Thank goodness this season is over!

                        “Here’s a good win for Bath after playing their second game for the round”

                        Can’t deny that. It shows they can get their act together when they really focus. It has been such an erratic season, occasional decent performances interspersed with dire ones such as being hammered by Sirens & throwing away decent leads on at least 2 occasions. The final match against the likely winners won’t show us much so who knows what to expect next season.

                          Another substantial lead by Bath overturned. This is becoming a dreadful habit which the coaches are completely unable to address. This has been a calamitous season for Bath & difficult decisions will have to be addressed.

                            Being competitive against Thunder was a surprise after recent debacles. Thunder have shown a recent decline in form so it’s not as much of a shock as it would have been but a shock nevertheless. I wonder what next season will bring. Will there be a further churn of players & maybe a different head coach or will they hope that the current crop show considerable development a year from now?

                                Is this the worst season that Bath have ever had? There is a lot of talk about being in transition & a difficult season was to be expected but was it likely to be this bad. Questions need to be asked. Other teams are in transition but not with such dire consequences. Is it more a question of lack of quality in the players and/or the coaches rather than totally down to some players inexperience?

                                  For the head coach to say that the team can take positives from such an humiliating defeat is unbelievable. To lose so comprehensively to a team just above them is a real step backwards.
