#3244977 Bootham Crescent Confirmed

Posted by Shadow45 on 09 December 2015 - 04:27 PM

500 plus at Heworth in the 'shambolic 2015' - would have been 600/650 at HS, will be 700/750 at BC

Generally you 2 - move on or don't bother whining on here

So that's appx. 1100 supporters down on the crowds of 2005? All must be well at the Knights. I agree with the Halls, something needs to be done to entice those lost supporters back, of which I am one. I live within a 5 minute walk of Bootham Crescent but still undecided wether I'll spend my time and money on watching the Knights. #sadtimes

#3210317 2016 Season & Squad

I see the game of "I know more than you" has started in earnest

Who is this "someone" feeding you "facts", Shades2? As you allude to be someone in the know when in comes to the Community Stadium.

Don't know - just going from memory/conversation a month back



Ask John he'll tell you the truth 

#3168528 Community Stadium

Posted by Shadow45 on 31 July 2015 - 02:34 PM

Mr McGill aledgedly gave Milky  a date where issues had to be sorted, sadly Milky aledgedly didn't come through and so the Knights aledgedly won't be playing at BC this season, which is a shame but c'est le vie

#3145163 Hemel away - Sunday 2.30 kick off

Posted by Shadow45 on 22 June 2015 - 11:24 AM

Didn't make it yesterday, but sounded like another great display of attacking rugby. Ref Gav's comment about players, understand from a reliable source there are a couple of current non-Knights players who want to be Knights players next season

Let's hope there's still a Knights team for them to join and that they have a permanent home ground

#3114486 Swinton away Sunday 3pm

Posted by Shadow45 on 30 April 2015 - 04:33 PM

Pretty confident he will be at the same place as me Sunday - as will James Clare who has signed on dual-reg from Cas - remember James playing a home game for our reserves last year and his attitude was brilliant - also a very good player who will bring a lot to the team



So Waterman will be in the "stands" then? ;)

#3114485 Laughing stock? - you're having a laugh !

I wouldn't be spending 15 quid to watch the lowest level of pro rl in a field which is fortunately dry at the moment


Think it's only a few pounds to watch York Acorn

#3089990 Home to Newcastle

Posted by Shadow45 on 16 March 2015 - 06:10 PM

 Going to be a very long season judged on that performance. 


Not really, it's supposedly ending after Friday's game 

#3081112 Home to Newcastle

Posted by Shadow45 on 01 March 2015 - 06:33 PM

not ALL.


Today's match just goes to show how strong our squad and coaching/conditioning staff are - managing to turn anyone over by 68 points, on a surface they've never played on 200 miles from your home city is amazing...


...and all down to Thornton's foundations and Fordy's new walls.


And all on a packed lunch  ;)

#3052894 York City Knights v Hull

Posted by Shadow45 on 07 January 2015 - 03:03 PM

Not saying its right - just saying it could happen on a short term basis possibly


Also  - & I know its very difficult at the moment, but a group of players & coaching staff who are working their what's its off at the moment (despite the other stuff) deserve a bit of backing & support on Sunday


Short term basis? If the CYC are refusing to allow the YCKs to play either at Bootham Crescent or the New Community Stadium (should it ever be built) whilst Mr G is in charge then where else in York is a viable option to play rugby league? Unless common sense prevails it looks like the demise of YCKs, which will indeed be a very sad day. 

#3052577 York City Knights v Hull

Posted by Shadow45 on 06 January 2015 - 06:12 PM

Seems that Mr G has had his bluff well and truly called. Will look forward with interest to his next Twitter posting. Maybe selling to the McGills is his only way out now with the CYC refusing to have any dealings with him

#3051968 Knights vs Hull

Posted by Shadow45 on 05 January 2015 - 03:31 AM

Now at the keep moat stadium Doncaster.
4.45 ko.
Thanks ycc

Don't think any of the three parties involved can come out of this stadium farce with any credit. Time to act like grown ups abd stop playing "games" before our dwindling fan base disappears. As always, it's the fans that are made to suffer

#3043982 our leader

Posted by Shadow45 on 12 December 2014 - 09:32 AM

"Our Leader" has posted on his infamous twitter account that all has been resolved, let's hope so as all this petty posturing is getting a tad boring

#3041412 Next Season

Posted by Shadow45 on 05 December 2014 - 01:28 PM

The draw for the first round of the league 1 cup will be broadcast live on BBC Radio Coventry and Warwickshire from 6.45pm

You don't get much more high profile than that
