#3243805 JR's fans' pep talk on Lions TV

Posted by mike the lion on 06 December 2015 - 05:16 PM

Don`t want to be a pessimist but to move from 400 to 2000 regular spectators at Sedgley Park in 2/3 years is an almighty ambitious target
It will take a number of top cup ties or play off matches to give the club enough media exposure to attract that amount of interest but we`ve only just gained promotion to the Championship.
Here is hoping though.

The commentary is great and the camera work is excellent.

#3162146 Mid Season Assessment

Posted by mike the lion on 21 July 2015 - 08:37 PM

Steve,I take it you mean  the way the fixtures have been structured York are favored with playing southern teams home and away.I thougth there would be winners and losers with such a format of fixtures.It seems the RFL tried to make it a close battle for promotion which they have achieved

The problem seems to be that the Southern teams should be in a separate league.

The weather forecast for Sunday is good so I`m going to try ro walk to Sedgley from Swinton.

I intend to start at 1.00 o`clock and follow the directions on the club website,so I can take in a beer or two.

If anybody is interested please reply and we can arrange a meeting point to start.

I thought Andy did really well for us when he came in at center last season.He always looked to offload in the tackle and keep the ball alive.When he went missing I thought it was Leiigh`s reaction to either John Roddy joining our board or John Duffy becoming our coach,but it appears there is another reason which has not been made clear.

Marshy1,I understand the BOD`s difficulties with the change in personnel after the Barrow game,but could someone in the posted the fact that Leigh had recalled their loan players - reason unknown!
The team announcements at Sedgley Park cannot be herd on the half way line so we had no idea of who number 22 was when he entered the pitch as a substitute.Again it would be nice to have known before match day that Ryan Maneely was in the squad.
These are minor problems compared with keeping the club iexistencece but every little helps.

#2949873 A Letter from Ian Watson to the fans

Posted by mike the lion on 25 June 2014 - 08:21 PM

I cannot understand why Salford want Watto now,at this moment in time,Why the urgency to have him now ?


Salford are not likely to be in the top eight or in danger of relegation and Watto`s appointment of only Assistant Coach is hardly likely to have any immediate impact on player performance.He main role seems to be with the U19`s. 

Surely this appointment could have been completed at the end of this season.


Maybe I`m being cynical here but do Salford want us to fail in avoiding the drop?
