#3107208 16 Apr: Wigan Warriors v Warrington Wolves KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 17 April 2015 - 06:34 AM

Could somebody please help... I was assured that this was the "Year of the Wolf", or is it next year...?

Good grief.

How could I forget the Britons Protection. Across the way from Bridgewater Hall. A short walk from the Peveril of the Peak.

Steve May always made worthwhile contributions to threads. His (self-imposed?) exile is a shame.

#3083502 RIP Ray

A gesture, whatever it may be, would be a true reflection of the esteem in which Ray was held on here. 

#3074832 Can you believe what you read in the papers?

To take this on a slight tangent, I have pretty much given up on the printed press. I take in my news from a variety of sources: Huffington Post, Al Jazeera and Russia Today (purely for an alternative perspective).

Reading through the above posts, makes me realise how inconsequential seemingly 'big' problems are upon reflection. 


I have my health, have kept all my friends and family in this year, so have absolutely no grounds to grumble.


To those who haven't had the best year; here's to turning the corner in 2015. 


To those who have had a good 'un; here's to more of the same.


I'll raise a glass to both parties when the clocks chime.

#3048273 so what's he bringing you this year

Posted by getdownmonkeyman on 23 December 2014 - 10:14 AM

A jumper. 


Because I am a middle aged man with a job, so I tend to buy presents rather than receive them.


I thought it was just me. I find the positive, that is not being disappointed when nothing drops down the chimney.




I will caveat the above, being a middle aged man with some disposable income, I usually get the things I want myself

Darn, got delayed stuck in traffic coming back from down south so missed tonight's match. Can anybody post the team sheets again as per the first match please?



#3040148 Fui Fui Moi Moi confirmed at Leigh

So MoiMoi's salary is known to all and sundry. It does make you wonder how all these salaries are known within the game. The HR/Legal departments in ALL RL clubs must have the loosest-lipped employees in any industry.

if anybody is interested, it was absolutely outstanding.


Thanks for that! A combination of being away and it being sold out has peed me right off.

Getting to 35 means you are past it. I wonder if Jamie Peacock failed to get the memo?

£67k to work in London for however many days a week. No, it isn't a huge salary.

I'd rather have the likes of Skinner in Parliament, than not.
