2 steps forward one back for Salford. This will be a Bulls win by 12.

The squad is too thin to be able to cope with this schedule. Gibson possibly added to the injury list

I have to fancy the Bulls as, in general, it's pretty fair to say we've played a bit better than the Reds so far. That said we've been a bit up and down too and, as I've said with a few other games, much will depend on who is actually available to play for both sides. Bulls or Reds to win, by either a lot or maybe not quite so many...mind, we do seem to be drawing a few this season!

It seems that both teams have a Jekyll and Hyde quality this year. It really does depend on which Bradford and which Salford turn up. Bulls favourites on balance, they have, generally, been better than us.

Walne re-signed by all accounts. I had to check as I thought he'd left.

Last year,after Salford defeated Huddersfield at The Etihad,they hosted Catalans and were 20 points down in as many minutes and then had 2 players sin-binned,so spent a short time with 11 players before coming back and winning.Alan Hunte used the word resilient/resiliance last night.The team spirit is good and there should be a little 'needle' following the apparent difference in how both clubs were viewed during their publicised financial affairs by both the RFL and fellow supporters from around the rugby league family.There was also the approach for the services of Sean Long when it became public that the club was fighting a winding-up order.
As a contender for try of the season was scored by Salford at the stadium last season,I am anticipating a cracker.
After my double celebration of victories over Huddersfield and Bradford I fear that Noble may be appointed the new head coach.As I comfort eat when depressed I shall seek out the apparent sale of Mr Khans curries within the Provident Stadium and prepare for my double-dip depression. :)

Unfortunately for both, Tim Roby is definitely turning up.

Well, given our fairly recent encounter with that particular loose cannon, we'll know what to expect as I'm sure the memory will definitely remain.

I don't think Dr Koukash wishes to wait that long.He wants winners.
That 'Winning Teams' book by Noble seems a loser.He has a contribution from Morrison - eclipsed by Leahy at Tesco.He has a contribution from Whelan - eclipsed by Mike Ashley at Sports Direct;and his sports team are perennial relegation fighters.He also has a contribution from Martin O'Neill just sacked from Sunderland soccer club as they race towards relegation.Hardly winners !
Apart from that,after the game tomorrow he will have to match 2 wins,and a draw,out of 5 which is what Alan Hunte will have achieved following on from the 1 win from 5 of Phil Veivers short and difficult tenure in 2013.

Yeah, that Ken Morrison, as his Wikipedia entry says: -

Whilst at school, Morrison worked in the family provisions business in the school holidays. He was given jobs such as working on the market stalls or checking eggs against lamps for defects.
Morrison served ... as a National Serviceman, and was demobilised in 1952. His father was seriously ill so Ken was plunged into the management of the business and had to learn very quickly.
... In the Sunday Times Rich List 2007 ranking of the wealthiest people in the UK he was placed 35th with an estimated family fortune of £1,595 million.


Christ, what a loser!

Our friend Mick Gledhill has just texted me to say there's a pitch inspection at 10:00am tomorrow. He reckons it's looking "doubtful".

Anyone else heard anything?

Are you sure you didn't mean to post this tomorrow morning? If you are serious this is one of the most short-sighted attitudes I have encountered in a long time. Barely worth arguing against it's so daft.

Re: pitch inspection, I've seen a photo of the pitch this morning - still quite white but that doesn't mean it isn't playable. Report in the local rag yesterday suggest the game will probably go ahead unless the weather gets worse.

Local forecast suggests a lowest of -1 overnight, which as better than the -3 of last night. Keeping my fingers crossed.

According to reports from earlier the pitch hadn't been covered - anyone know if that's still the case, I'd be surprised if it wasn't covered by now.
