I'm assuming so. I think the song comes from football originally but could be wrong

Well we oughto drop that lad that dressed as a post protector who obstructed allowing Saxton to get out of the in goal.

I couldn't believe what I was watching. 2 sets of laws today.

One of the stewards today said if it was football, thered be riots. But were well behaved boys and girls in Capperland.

Cummins Out.

I wasnt there. My mate suggy was. I posted his comments. Neither he or I blamed anyone. Your post is deeply ignorant.
Matt was there. He offers his "sole" view!!

I hardly care either way....

We did, for the first 60 we gave a good account of ourselves, tiredness set in and an odd interpretations from Clouseau hammered us.

If we can take that into the Halifax match we wont get hammered like we did last year.

Which kind of backs up suggys version of today. Said the lads made a proper fist of it, just didnt get enough in front after a lot of forst half possession.

Has anyone on here defended the idiots at Huddersfield?

 

Didn't you accuse all Leythers there last night? or mention the Leythers clapping the Wigan team at the end? I also don't recall any trouble at all and 2000 on the lash is a big following.

 

i didn't use the word all, at all. Did I say there was trouble?

 

Are you confusing me with another poster as your points make no sense regarding what I posted

Wigan (and a lot of NW towns) has a lot of catholic churches and schools, evident in a lot of the names of the amateur RL clubs - (wigan st patricks, ince st williams wigan st judes etc etc). I understand that leigh has more of a protestant history and so for some reason leigh fans bring up this rather tenuous link

Protestant churches and schools are named after saints.
Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

Not those saints though. In the North, a lot of Protestant schools are named after indigenous Celtic saints* such as St Aiden not Catholic ones or the apostles such as Mark or Matthew.

 

*irony of ironies the Celtic church came from Ireland originally

Sorry but I think that is nonsense. There is a lot of catholic heritage in Leigh as well - some English (as my fathers family are) and some Irish. My understanding was that NW England had a strong catholic tradition before the Irish started to migrate over anyhow, and I am personally interested in the historical aspect of this Leigh's (and the wider NWs) catholic history.

True, Lancashire was a bastion of English Catholicism after the reformation. It's not all down to Irish migration.

Your reply may be correct, however, can you show the good people why it is a 'a corck of guff'.

 

I could say that your post is a bag of $h!yt£, but in reality until you post your reasoning I can't.
