Every body has the right to be stupid, but you really are abusing the privilege .

#3193458 Rugby Yawnion WC

Apparently there is a World cup competition starting in the next few days. I know its Union, but its England.
Hope they do really well, but I cant see them winning it. Don't watch Union but read a few reports on England and I don't think their chances are good. Cant see them beating the southern hemisphere teams. But as a tipster I make a good nuclear scientist. France if they turn up can cause an upset.

Unfortunately I cant see them winning this again.


#3185153 Challenge Cup Final

Posted by ArthurDaley on 31 August 2015 - 10:02 PM

I didn't realize you had to wear a Hornets shirt for the CC final, perhaps they were wearing St Helens or Wigan shirts. Or even Leeds shirts.

Hornets suffer the same as Rochdale football, being in a big catchment area it is easy to get to super league grounds. A lot of people in Rochdale would sooner follow a so called big team than there own home town team. Of course it is entirely up to them who they support but both clubs suffer for it.


DD I watched the women's hockey euro final from Lee Valley ( and what a good game it was England 2-0 down with 8 minutes to go, ended 2-2 and England won the shoot out) Even they had a Royal watcher Somebody called the Countess of Wessex. Married to someone called Prince Edward

( I think)

#3129750 Who remembers

Posted by ArthurDaley on 26 May 2015 - 06:39 PM

Its going back a fair few years now, when the owd fella got his photo in the football pink, with a ring round his face, it was only a couple of Quid but worth having in them days.

#3115582 Mark Wynn Interview

Unfortunate name that.....



Not quite as bad as this ex German footballer.




I remember him scoring at Wembley a few years ago, if memory serves the commentator just said, the Germans have scored. He could have said the German K---s has scored

#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.



#3071463 Rochdale a Dump?

Posted by ArthurDaley on 13 February 2015 - 08:02 PM

Thanks Arthur,Much ado about nothing,newspapers and the BBC like to slag off Rochdale.


That's alright MIck.


Its a good job we have Karen to show Rochdale in a good light. Daily Mail give her lots of coverage.

#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.



#3039926 Yesterday At Spotland

Posted by ArthurDaley on 01 December 2014 - 08:01 PM

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.



#2985238 Todays match betting odds.

Posted by ArthurDaley on 29 August 2014 - 10:16 PM


    I guess that was just the odds. But it predicted the wrong outcome.

        Hello rourkem, I do know. Please try and keep up. That was posted in May . And now its August.

#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.
