In Topic: stamp it out!

06 October 2014 - 11:00 AM

Only the ref can sort this ... stamp his authority early on and no backward steps.

When I played in the 70's the only time you spoke to the ref was for a bol*o*king and even then you only addresed him as" sir."

In Topic: Why the empty seats?

What about giving the CC winners a place in the proposed expanded WCC? Would that create more interest by giving more importance to winning the tournament?


But maybe that is far to obvious for our Ludite Leaders up at Red Hall Manor :bb:

In Topic: smoking at stadiums

Can people live without a pint for a few hours,alcohol is hardly part of a healthy lifestyle.Yet that is sold at grounds.

The clubs make big profits from the bar sales.

They wouldnt make anything by allowing smoking.

Selective moralising methinks  ;) ??

In Topic: First game you attended?

22 July 2014 - 09:54 AM

My first game ever was as a young lad of 10 and the game was Feathersone Rovers at home in the cup 2nd round

( February 1961)
Donning my new Wires scarf and armed with a massive wooden rattle( ex Air Raid Warden's) I was ready for my indoctrination.Just as I was setting off my Dad shouted to me "Don't forget to look out for the number 2 winger Bevan he's the best player that has ever played for us" wow that was some statement and I couldn't wait to see this super hero !
Well here I was at Wilderspool and the atmosphere was electric as Wire entered the arena to the roar of a packed crowd.

Then shock horror I realised Bevan wasn't playing but instead some old man who was bald with no teeth ,thin as a rake and swathed in more bandages than an Egyptian mummy was on the wing instead.!
Oh well not to worry I watched the game and was still captivated for life with my beloved Wire.
Even though we lost 13-10.
I got home and told my Dad all about the game and how we probably got beat because Bevan never played and I then described this old man who had taken his place.
Suddenly I felt a clip around my ear as Dad told me that WAS Brian Bevan !!!
Happy days happy memories.
