#3077979 Whitebank Stadium

Posted by ArthurDaley on 24 February 2015 - 03:30 PM

Pray that's its not raining, take a box to stand on so you might see some play, For the players don't expect any warm water in the showers after the game.

Apart from that have two pleasant afternoons.




#3074870 CC 3rd round draw

Posted by ArthurDaley on 19 February 2015 - 06:45 PM

The bottom 4 super league teams as of what date?  They dont seem to specify . . probably decide the week before.

 

I suppose that will completely disrupt Superleague fixtures that weekend because although only 4 teams are involved it could mean four fixtures have to be cancelled and hence cause fixture congestion later in the season.

 

It also reduces the chances of league one teams facing superleague teams, they have to progress to stage where the championship teams play and then survive that round in order to have a chance of playing one of the bottom 4 SL teams.  Probably not a bad thing given the hidings and injuries they tend to suffer when playing the full timers.  But then whats the point of entering the competition?

 

This re-dis-organisation of the game really is something that Monty Python could have used.

 

A message from the Chairman of the RFL.

#3047797 Rochdale AFC, EGM

Posted by ArthurDaley on 21 December 2014 - 08:02 PM

Just let me expand a touch then. The considerable investment that Hornets put into Spotland is now money down the drain. Clear ownership structure yes I just hope the pitch does not become an issue when it suits AFC or Mr Hill.

 

Did you see Spotland pre Hornets ? Have you seen Spotland recently ?

How long have Hornets been at Spotland 20/25 years. Somebody has to pay for the upkeep, somebody has to pay for the ground staff, somebody has to pay the rates, water, electric etc. I don't know how much Hornets put into the stadium company, but a money pit like Spotland money wont last forever. Please tell us what you would have done with the money Hornets put in.

 

As for the shares issue, somebody had to do something, things couldn't go on like they were.

Yeah, how's the pitch these days ? It's a wonder we aren't being blamed for the recent run of bad form.

#3000098 Match Day 2015...

Posted by ArthurDaley on 21 September 2014 - 06:40 PM

No its not bloody stupid! It is actually exploring if Hornets can get above 500 fans for a game on any given day. A lot of clubs play on Friday night in super league, that does not suit families but it is not bloody stupid. RL was played on a Saturday for years and it did start to gravitate to Sunday due to competition with soccer, but Sunday has now become a day many women drag menfolk around all sorts of places. It may be a flop but don't knock em for trying.

Mmm, see what you mean.

#2976049 Dale Bid for Stadium

Posted by ArthurDaley on 12 August 2014 - 06:05 PM

You right there Doug. Their agenda is solely to remove Hornets from the stadium. After yesterday's result I would have thought any spare dosh they have would be better spent on the pitch than off it.

 

I'm sorry TS and Larry but I just cannot believe my eyes at some of the things you have posted.

TS please point me in the direction of the agenda to remove Hornets from Spotland. Is it something Chris Dunphy has said, like a while ago Dale would like to take over Hornets.

Have I missed something in the Observer or Rochdale Online, have you sat in on meetings with the stadium company.

To the small number of Dale and Hornets fans who don't like each other, Dale and Hornets NEED EACH OTHER at Spotland.

 

And Rochdale as a town need both clubs.

We don't need terraces and seats to watch the yeds, we'll stand all day long, aka Hemel, York, Gloucester,, Oxford and Measteg

 

Care in the community isn't really working for you is it.




#2942076 SWINTON V ROCHDALE

#2927747 Todays match betting odds.

Posted by ArthurDaley on 11 May 2014 - 10:47 AM

Hornets 30-100 Workington 7-4 with Betfair.

Don't really understand betting, but Hornets to lose by 70 points at home, think that's a bit much Mick.




#2900844 Now for the next hurdle

Posted by ArthurDaley on 17 March 2014 - 07:00 PM

QUOTE "Just one thing that's been bothering me lately about the game in general, am I the only one who lings for the time when referees were not forced to dress up like sodding clowns.  Today's team wore a sickly orange ensemble whilst some are embarrassingly coaxed into shocking pink!!!!  All to suit some sponsor."

I'm with you Puggie, I much prefer the Dickin Green

One of the best laughs I had at Hornets, many years ago.
Oi ref, theres a pub near here named after you.
The dick in green, even the ref smiled at that.
