#3134630 Your 17 for Sunday?

Posted by Little Lion Man on 03 June 2015 - 09:12 PM

Whatever team is selected, this is a big weekend looking at the fixtures. The top 8 are all playing each other and the results of all matches are in the balance. With home advantage against Newcastle we should have the edge but will need to be on our A game from the start and play two full halfs. Not a game for experimenting I would suggest. Could have a big impact on how the league table pans out this season, so definitely one to get down to Sedgley Park for. Can't wait..

Wins for Barrow, Crusaders, Swinton and York would leave top 5 on 12 points, 2 on 11 and 1 on 10 (and with a game in hand for Swinton)

#3127223 Barker strikes again, unbelievable!

Come on BM, give the guy a break. A great piece on the lions in the MEN.

Maybe keeper is too modern for you. He is certainly not referring to football but is referring to Duffy in charge.

"keeper" ......


A guard or watcher;

Long term good prospect worth investing in;

And perhaps most appropriate "lion keeper".

Cut some slack. I appreciate he will never do/write anything good enough in your eyes but perhaps time to move on..?

With Tommy going it leaves room with the salary cap,wonder if Glenn's looking to bring another player in??

"Are you lot ever happy?"......... (To quote you)

You already have Zach Johnson and Josh Barlow to cover for him.

#2949799 John Duffy in for Watto?

You are a troll

Troll or Trolless ... :spruceup:

#2949794 Ian Mort

Posted by Little Lion Man on 25 June 2014 - 05:42 PM

I would like to see Mort back as I rated him as a try scorer, goal kicker and good organising full back


The mort (sic) the merrier I say.

#2949289 John Duffy in for Watto?

Posted by Little Lion Man on 24 June 2014 - 06:58 PM

Can I commend the board on how they have dealt with this and the swift (though considered) appointment of John Duffy.

I am however still disappointed with Salford to leak the story to the press before your chance to announce and attempts to create media at other clubs expense.

I would wish Ian good luck but it is Salford so I won't.

#2946127 NEW T-Shirts

Posted by Little Lion Man on 17 June 2014 - 09:10 PM

Just noticed that barrow have released sublimated (more socially acceptable) polo shirts.....I had to look it up but I think it is what I was suggesting....sort of.

#2942939 NEW T-Shirts

Posted by Little Lion Man on 11 June 2014 - 01:08 PM

I have always fancied a proper polo shirt in the "style" of a retro kit.


When the 2013 kit came along I thought I had got just that but ultimately it is still a rugby Jersey (for Blue Monkey!) and therefore not always appropriate (perfect for the match/house/playing sport etc) but at my age, not for the pub on a satuday evening etc.


I was thinking like this picture course (in swinton colours). Lose the polo player (!!!copyright alert!!!) and with perhaps ("Lions") in subtle lettering across the shoulders or sleeve (or perhaps  a lion badge on one sleeve and a small "since 1866" on the other ?)



I would look the bees knees at the garden parties/beer garden/pub/dress down at work!



PS - I would certainly not be including utility pockets for glasses, screwdriver,fags and emergency torch! ;)

#2938313 lions v Doncaster

Posted by Little Lion Man on 02 June 2014 - 05:23 PM

Nothing new to me on Sunday, though a much improved performance on Batley. - no wingers, no centres -  Thought we were fortunate that Doncaster drove up the middle and were very predictable (might even say boring!) - second half and they got the ball out wide (either through hands or a kick) and strolled in twice to seal it.


Three hookers, two full backs on the wings, no centres/wingers - the team is patched together and different every week (and DR is not to blame for that one).


Never felt in "control" of the game at any time but I was also disappointed in Doncaster who, given their league position looked only looked solid and rather one dimensional. That is the way to win games though and there is a lesson in just doing the basics in this league. (OR a few quid in the refs pocket of course ;) )

#2924748 Rochdale

Posted by Little Lion Man on 04 May 2014 - 10:54 PM

I think you saw one of the survivors today, and it was Hornets.!!

And I genuinely hope I am wrong. On what I saw, I saw nothing but swinton wasting an opportunity to get points. If a team is to stay up over swinton then I hope it is rochdale, "home of the co-operation"

#2921172 Ticket Prices

Posted by Little Lion Man on 25 April 2014 - 09:04 PM

Hey Zach, what are you doing asking for tickets prices for Sunday.

Saturday concessions 10 and juniors 2 on Saturday.

Ps.... Leigh do not use the forum on totalrl so you are unlikely to get a reply. It will be more expensive than the Saturday.

So would suggest you stick to the Saturday game with Swinton, more championships than Leigh,Keighley and Fev put together.
