I don't mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence.
"Be mindful of the prayers you send,
Pray hard but pray with care,
For the tears that you are crying now,
Are just your answered prayers"

We've always been the Lions anyway, regardless of whether or not it was an official appendage. So Keith has a point.
Thanks for that Steve. Yes, from Queen Victoria's day we've been the Lions, from when the White Lion became the club's HQ. As a teenager, a few decades ago, I, and a few hundred others, would scream "Come on the Lions!" at the top of our voices when they were simply Swinton.
One mention of "Swinton" and the first thing that you would think of was Station Road and the men in blue.

I think if Dr Koukash does take over Swinton,he will be the one who puts the money into build the stadium and develop it,but I don't think he will be the chairman and my feeling is that it will be one of his children,who I think are grown up who will run Swinton RLFC on his behalf,just like Abramovich at Chelsea has someone running the club for him.

If he gets permission to do a development in Swinton he will earn a good few pennies and hopefully build a stadium that we can rent for years to come.
Hopefully that decision will come soon as the unknowing period is not helping OUR Club get investment from anywhere else.
