Same . But I guess , bottom line is if you can't best Rochdale at home you don't deserve to be in this league . So , right attitude and no going to sleep for periods again , and the pieces should come together . Hopefully .
I would agree David but unfortunately you have no way of knowing which Rochdale will turn up - Rochdale with 5 St Helens players is a much tougher proposition to one without.

I find it amusing when this day and age we have so many ways of promoting games and the club and yet many years ago pre- computers and mobile phones and even television we knew more about our club than we do now.
The club Secretary (J J Hodgson) used to have nearly a full page in the Evening Star newspaper (on a Wednesday, I think) and then he also wrote about 3 pages of information in the matchday programmes. Your team was announced on a Thursday after training and on a Saturday evening we used to all stand outside the Lancashire Evening Post office on Oxford Street to read the pink coloured paper's match report from that days games where-ever they were played.
Mind you in those days we had over 12,000 members of our lotteries as well. But just how do we get people interested now. I was talking to a lad today who used to attend fairly regular and he asked about how Town were doing. I told him they were playing some good rugby and told him to get himself back down to DP. I said they were playing Rochdale tomorrow and he replied "Naah, I'll give it a miss". These are the sort of people that this review should be talking to in the area to see why so many have become disenfranchised with the club and the sport, not the few hundred diehards at each of our clubs.
I remember when .............................
"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Wonder what's put Red's nose out of joint ? Signing Declan maybe . Who knows . Maybe could have used him tomorrow to.
