#3257263 Tell me about Leeds

Posted by cookey on 12 January 2016 - 05:08 PM

Really depends what you are looking for and how much you have to spend.Headingley is still mainly students,Chapel Allerton is quite trendy,Horsforth is probably worth looking at,Adel is quiet and convenient.

#3256011 Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

Posted by cookey on 09 January 2016 - 10:53 AM

We are still paying over £1 bill/week in interest payments(treasuries) on the national debt we already have.i.e. without the debt,we would have £1 bill/week to spend on other things,such as roads,nhs,benefits etc.


People love to spend money but have absolutely no idea where it comes from - spend on this,we must have this,this is a priority,it's a scandal etc,etc.


Everyone wants taxes to go up,as long as it's not theirs,everyone wants cuts to this and that,as long as it isn't a cut to anything they want/deserve!


The economic ignorance of the hard left is staggering.


p.s. latest opinion poll puts Corbyn on - 42% and indicates a Tory overall majority of approaching 100 seats,in a reduced House of Commons of 600 members.

It's always somebody else's fault !


Wakefield and one or two other Clubs need to stop blaming other people and accept responsibility - no doubt Bradford will be along shortly.

#3237433 Aberdeen Warriors looking for Fixtures in 2016

Posted by cookey on 21 November 2015 - 12:25 PM

Hi,please we've generated some ideas/contacts.


You might care to look at a thread on The General Rugby League Forum,started on 26 Oct by Anmhiabu,headed,'Longhorns academy Ireland looking for opposition',as there were a few ideas on that thread.Specifically,Lional Hurst at Gloucester All Golds might be a very good contact, lhurst@glos.ac.uk 


Don't forget the Cumbrian teams.Certainly,anyone fancying a long weekend tour,could do alot worse than visit Aberdeen.These 9's tournaments seem a good way of making contacts - is there still a York Nines event?


Try and get John Drake to do a little article on you.

#3218740 Leeds Rhinos Vs New Zealand

Posted by cookey on 22 October 2015 - 08:27 AM

Less than a thousand tickets remain available.


Who would have thought it for just a 'friendly'! Maybe high class entertainment and an enjoyable evening with a great atmosphere for £20 was an attraction?!

#3218183 Leeds Rhinos Vs New Zealand

Posted by cookey on 21 October 2015 - 09:08 AM

Not too seriously,it's an end of season/celebration/thanks to the retiring players game for Leeds and a warm up game for NZ,however,it will be greatly enjoyed by the 20,000 who will turn up for the nights entertainment and will generate over £500,000 for rl.Everyone wins,apart from the few who dont go,yet still decide to moan for whatever reason.

#3217160 Leeds Rhinos Vs New Zealand

Posted by cookey on 19 October 2015 - 08:17 AM

Looking like another sell out,as both South and Carnegie Stands now full.Apart from a few odd ones in the North Stand,only real availability is on the Western Terrace.Likely to announce full sell out on tues/wed.

#3216384 Magic weekend

Posted by cookey on 18 October 2015 - 10:45 AM

Whitley Bay is a good choice - full of bars/restraunts/pubs but can get a little rowdy with stag nights.Used to be a 'famous' club on a corner,called the Rex?!


Maybe someone from the area can suggest a few camp sites,if the hotels get booked up?Actually,an oppourtunity for a local rugby club to open up their facilities as a camp site,as many in Yorks did for the Tour de france.

#3212247 Sell Outs.

Posted by cookey on 11 October 2015 - 08:16 AM

And pay a fortune in rent,lose all the corporate hospitality oppourtunities/revenue and upset the fans - other than that,a brilliant idea.

#3211506 Who's your bet to replace Stevo?

Posted by cookey on 10 October 2015 - 07:38 AM

The point of having Cummings,is that neither Stevo or Hemmings know the rules or more accurately,their interpretation.The amount of times Stevo makes a call,only to be put back in his box is embarrassing,for a supposedly professional commentator.


Desperately disappointed he seems to be doing another year,he has done an enormous amount of damage to rugby league in the past 5 yrs.

#3204196 Tim Smith Banned, Fined and Sacked

Posted by cookey on 01 October 2015 - 06:46 AM

Good decisive,positive,professional action by the Club,well done to Wakefield.

#3203689 SL Semi Tickets

Posted by cookey on 30 September 2015 - 02:49 PM

I'm amazed roughyedspud doesn't also want free over night accommodation and a chauffeur driven car to get him there.He'd still object to paying for a bag of chips.

#3197708 Manchester Rangers

Posted by cookey on 21 September 2015 - 04:10 PM

Manchester Rangers certainly appear to be a stand out Club - congratulations on your efforts.

#3170642 69% increase in TV viewers for St Helens v Leeds Challenge Cup semi final.

Posted by cookey on 04 August 2015 - 06:39 AM

One has to smile.I seem to recall numerous postings prior to the semi finals saying that it was a disgrace/crisis that one game was being played on a fri night,the other on a sat lunchtime.No one would go,no one would watch,the RFL should be sacked,the BBC don't care etc,etc.Now it seems that every rl game should be on the BBC and that if it isn't the game will be in a crisis/disgrace and that the RFL should be sacked.


I really can't understand,why you can't chose your lottery numbers,after the draw has been made.

#3170276 69% increase in TV viewers for St Helens v Leeds Challenge Cup semi final.

Posted by cookey on 03 August 2015 - 01:12 PM

I hope Sky Sports watched the two games and saw what viewing figures can be produced,when you employ professional,intelligent,literate individuals,rather than the lazy,shoddy,amateur garbage they have been offering for the past five years.It says something for your production,when you have to employ a former referee,because your commentator and 'analyst' don't know the rules of the modern game.Maybe they also noticed the benefit of separating the presenter from the commentator?Not one 'contraversal' moment,because the commentator and expert concentrated on what was actually happening,rather than what two OAP thought they may have seen for 100m away,largely because they can't think of anything intelligent,relevant or incisive to say.

For the sake of rugby league,go and go now before you do further damage to our game.
