#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.

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

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

"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

Who know's what goes on behind closed doors? But it shouldn't be too difficult for the two parties to come to some arrangement that benefits both groups. If this new ground doesn't get built, York City fans will be watching their football at the Knavesmire and York City Knights will be watching their rugby at Thannet Road. It's about time all this point scoring stopped from both parties.

Who cares what the Hawks are doing, they're in the league above us, time to concentrate on our team, The Knights.

#3001335 can Jack Lee win on sunday

Posted by Shadow45 on 23 September 2014 - 05:25 PM

a win for York and the Hunslet fans won't be happy, a win for Hunslet leaves him open to allegations of not trying from York fans. is this fair on the lad.


Easy answer to the question would be not to play the lad. Play Brinning and Carter. It seems like Hunslets early press release that they'd signed Lee has had the desired effect.

#3000118 Oldham at home Sunday

Posted by Shadow45 on 21 September 2014 - 06:59 PM

can't wait for George Stokes to get to "laying on" and "offside", in his rule book, then we may see a decent game from him.


York should have been smart enough to play to his standards, you could tell from the first 5 minutes how he was going to referee the game

#2999979 Revenge at York?

Posted by Shadow45 on 21 September 2014 - 04:11 PM

The game that really matters is now on. Should be some good banter this week now. Have we got what it takes to avenge the 40 nil defeat?


If the Knights play the way the did today then you have every chance of progressing through to the final at your owners ground  :onthequiet:

#2997375 fair

Posted by Shadow45 on 17 September 2014 - 03:17 PM

Apparently next year 1st & 2nd play off, winner gets promoted. Loser then plays off with 3rd, 4th & 5th ???


Should be kept simple, Champions go up then however many teams the RL want involved in the play offs, play off for the second promotion place

#2997368 fair

Posted by Shadow45 on 17 September 2014 - 03:14 PM

We only need to beat you once





Hopefully "sods law" will not come into play should both teams be fortunate enough to make the Play Off Final

#2996774 fair

Posted by Shadow45 on 16 September 2014 - 04:57 PM

Funny that's there's no mention of the fact that York finished 13 points behind us (Oldham) in the league in 2010, when you went on to beat us in the final. Was that fair? We at Oldham tend to accept these "so called" injustices as just one of those things.


Did you finish top of the league that year?


For all the rights and wrongs of this season, I believe that the team that finishes top should be promoted. The play offs were brought in so that more teams had more to play for through out the season, which in my opinion is a good idea
