Sounds promising,lets hope that this is the good news everyone has been waiting for and that the signpost is there pointing in the direction of home,with not too many miles left to go.

Seems Koukash family could now be interested in buying Bradford Bulls?

Yes he's just said as much now on Twitter "is wife is finalising a deal to buy Bradford, so he's had to cook the tea for him and the kids"!

So I guess that's it for Swinton, not sure what to make of his early tweet regarding news this week of the council regarding Swinton

I'll stick my neck on the line and say the council have yet again failed to help us.

Ps. Don't reply saying I shouldn't put the council down blah blah blah just incase they may be still thinking about it..,

They've done nothing for us and never will! Like the Dr or not, they and we will never get a better offer

I don't think in three days he has decided to show interest in Bradford and drop Swinton!

I've not seen the tweet Wayne but did he actually say that he wasn't going ahead with his plans for Swinton town centre?
Don't forget he's not really in it just to get another rugby league team. He's in it to make a profit out of the development as well. The cost of running the Lions, whilst far far from insignificant, would be a very different proposition to that of Bradford Northern!

About an hour ago someone asked him if the interest in Bradford meant he was no longer interested in Swinton.He replied that he's still interested in Swinton.

It's all very confusing so we sit tight. If there was something we could do I am sure we would know.

Must say, at the meeting he did say swinton would be his wife's club.....how many other family members does he have left!

...to that of Bradford Northern!

 

Nice to see someone use a club's historic (proper) name for a change.

I hate all the names 'invented' by the marketing weirdoes as most of them are so phoney and alien to the culture of British rugby league. Even though 'our' Lions appendage is totally genuine, I'd much prefer it to be dropped even though I feel I'd largely be in a minority in this respect

Well that's a bit old news now, we've got our fingers on the pulse with latest updates from twitter (that's like a modern newspaper) about a huge take over for Swinton and your still worried about bulls, rhinos and warriors.

As for Swinton lions being just Swinton.... absolutely not!!!!!

We've always been the Lions anyway, regardless of whether or not it was an official appendage. So Keith has a point.

Possibly a pointless point .......in the circumstances.

I would sacrifice more than a nickname for a vibrant future.
