In Topic: Andy Wilson - writes something worth reading!

Correct. He went through a period when he seemed very negative, but this season, he's been much more even-handed.


To be fair to Andy, he's always been a League man through and through. I know that he's sometimes found it hard to persuade his editors at the Grauniad to give him space in the paper to write about League. He primarily writes about cricket because it pays the bills - if more media outlets were keen on regular, lengthy League articles he wouldn't need to do that.

I've also seen him at amateur matches down South on several occasions, supporting his local club (he lived in Oxford at one point - I've no idea if he does now). He can be positive, though he's as aware of everyone else of League's problems. Unfortunately, his Editors rarely think League is newsworthy unless - as with Flower's moment of brutal idiocy - it shows the sport in a poor light.

Chris Irvine is more of an issue in my opinion. I have respect for him, but his endless negativity is wearing even for the most cynical of souls.

OK. Where will they be playing in 2015 (and maybe 2016)?


Can't help you re: 2015. That's also sensitive (and I don't know). I know more about the 2016 stadium situation (I.E they will be moving in to the new stadium by March 2016)

An interesting statement WCE. Do you have anything to substantiate this or is it your opinion?


A journalist never reveals his sources. I cannot reveal all that I know - the Eagles will say more when the process has moved on further.

Oh, and there will be more announcements to come over weeks and months with regards to some of the finer points. The key things are that the Eagles are in a very strong position and it's likely that when it comes to the stadium, they'll be in a position to call the shots. This is vital in the long run, to the club as much as anything else.

Does he run a PROfessional BIZiness?


No. The Eagles wouldn't go anywhere near Mr Probiz, that you be be sure!
