#3270523 Shenton out for the season

Posted by Kenilworth Tiger on 09 February 2016 - 09:09 AM

Devastated for the lad - he's been superb for his since his return from Saints.

 

On a positive we have good cover in the centres,

 

As for the tackle, I can;t hand on heart say that I saw anything deliberate in it so prepared to give the player the benefit of the doubt

 

Get well soon Shenny




#3267908 Cas Stadium update

Posted by Kenilworth Tiger on 05 February 2016 - 08:29 AM

They are not applying any pressure etc! Nor do they have any intention of walking away from the club or cease their support to my knowledge (obviously it's Jack and Bridie's sons now involved).

However, common sense suggests that this capital income would be a good juncta to repay the debt. Nothing more sinister than this as far as I am aware.

Not what this thread needs

 

I've heard that the Fultons have given Cas a deadline of Tuesday week to repay the £4 billion or they are taking the matter to court. On top of this the planning approval for the new ground has been mistakenly put in the washing machine so it really is back to square one. I understand Primark being one of the anchor tenants is what prompted the Fultons to take this action

 

So looking like another false dawn I'm afraid




#3267414 2016 four nations venues

Posted by Kenilworth Tiger on 04 February 2016 - 01:48 PM

The Etihad is well on its way to becoming the best stadium in the North and one of the best in Europe. Its corporate facilities (If you like that sort of thing) are on a different level to stadiums like Coventry, Newcastle ect, even the OP. It's well linked with a Metrolink stop and a train station at Ashburys. And the city centre within walking distance.

 

Manchester and Greater Manchester is only second to London for hotel rooms. There is also a genuine international airport here as well. A purpose built fan zone at ' City Square' also comes with the stadium. There has already been 1 billion spent on this area, and they're planning to spend another 1 billion.

 

So if Rugby League really wants to project a world class image? then they wouldn't go far wrong with having  more games of the blue ribbon games  at this stadium.

 

But for many the fact this stadium is in the North and not that far for many Rugby League fans to travel to would be an obstacle for them ever to pick this world class stadium as the premier location for international Rugby League games.

Quite - come on RL, to hell with Soccer and Man City, put your foot down and demand we have a game there, I'm sure they'll understand




#3267203 Zika Disease

Posted by Kenilworth Tiger on 04 February 2016 - 08:38 AM

, Zika is nothing whatsoever like Ebola.  People die from Ebola; many people.  

Phew - no need to panic then

#3265482 Ricoh Arena Could Get RL Role

Posted by Kenilworth Tiger on 01 February 2016 - 08:11 AM

I know most of you on here think I've got some gripe about expansion RL areas. But I don't think Coventry is the right place for major England Rugby League internationals at the moment.

 

   

But your reasons for it not being the right place are based on the M6 being busy when you go to work and the fact that an RU team own the stadium - hardly convincing




#3265481 Do you agree with Kevin Brown?

Posted by Kenilworth Tiger on 01 February 2016 - 08:08 AM

Ah the now traditional doom and gloom from the inside on the eve of the new season - Where's George Riley when you need him




#3264937 Ricoh Arena Could Get RL Role

Posted by Kenilworth Tiger on 31 January 2016 - 10:59 AM

I only go there because my job demands I go there. But I won't be going to Coventry to pay good money to watch England in a Rugby Union stadium, in a Rugby Union area. Not now , not ever.

 

Wow - just WOW!!

 

So we can blame the RFL for not championing our sport enough on a national level, we can blame the press for not giving us enough coverage and we can blame Union for, well just about anything really, yet attitudes like this are the exact reason why RL is not a "national sport (sic)




#3260642 Cas Stadium update

Posted by Kenilworth Tiger on 22 January 2016 - 08:35 AM

I agree with some of your points but the fact that half of the retail space has been taken is positive. The developers will always change designs to accommodate retailers requirements.

I work in Cas so know plenty about the town centre which is deprived. Unfortunately though it's not convenient for modern day shoppers to get to. All the new housing is being built in the area some way from the centre and there is limited parking there and congestion can get bad. So unless you're within walking distance or like getting the bus, it's not really convenient. The new development will be far more convenient and easier to get to for most.

The M&S in Cas is so dated and in reality far too small to prosper along with the lack of footfall due to the issues above. The council does need to seriously think about what it does with the centre of Cas and spend money to redevelop it but reducing the retail footprint is where I'd start

 

 

Careful mate - factual posts like the above have no place on this board.

 

Let's stick to saying it'll never get built, even if it did it would be too small and the seats need be muticoloured to disguise the fact the stadium that is too small has not enough people attending.

 

Oh and if you could also carry on with Primark not being a major player in retail that would be good too

Next, M&S and Primark all signed up to open stores at the new fivetowns park where the stadium id going to be.

 

 

Further good news with work expected to start this year

 

Cue the naysayers........................

Gill can't argue he "lost" revenue........and he can't take best part of £2,000,000 off SKY and then complain they want his club to do Thursday slots.

 

 

The article is not a moan in the slightest if you read it properly. In fact he praises the system and ,emtions that the club will do what they need to do to put it right next year

 

Did you ignore the bit where Steve Gill said

 

“The Super 8s is a great concept and we did back it from the start so we’re not going to moan about it now.

 

You really are tedious
