#2949799 John Duffy in for Watto?

You are a troll
I claim my £5


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 ?)

Polo%20Short%20Sleeve%20T-Shirt%20Men-28

 

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 ;) )

I assume he went to the Grammar School in Monton?

 

I assume you meant "Okay dokey, gracious me, they taught you well in Monton too". :tongue:

#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.


#2916114 Today's game.

Posted by Little Lion Man on 13 April 2014 - 11:13 PM

I am guessing it would be Samir taharoui from the description alone. Was with swinton last year and signed on for whitehaven this season


#2915266 Dual Reg with Salford

Posted by Little Lion Man on 11 April 2014 - 09:39 PM

Careful on the way down from Ivory Tower.............Welcome to the Dark Side.




#2915248 Swinton away, Sunday 13th April KO 3pm

Posted by Little Lion Man on 11 April 2014 - 09:22 PM

There were 5 dual reg Wolves players + 1 more on loan when they played Fev the other week. It took well into the second half before Rovers got on top, proving that Swinton are a handy side. If they are once again stacked with Warrington players, I think we will struggle. I predict a narrow Rams victory and a BP for the Wolves. Oops I mean lions. 

 

Lions 14 Rams 16

 

Interesting.........but wrong (RFL rules say you can only have 5 Dr or loans combined)

 

Back at ya - Ricochet :onthequiet: (see what I did there?)

 

Predictions ... Dewsbury to score first, Deswbury to win the penalty count, Dewsbury to win by 10.

 

Always enjoy a game against Dewsbury - safe journey

Are the tickets in the Swinton end of the ground? ;)




#2913409 Leigh and loans

Posted by Little Lion Man on 08 April 2014 - 12:54 PM

"Short term loan deal" or "d**l reg****tion"

 

"Terrorist" or "freedom fighter"

 

Two sides of the same coin

 

Tomkins loaned from Wigan to Salford on a one month loan too. I think short term loans between clubs in the same league are undermining the credibility of Super League as a competition ;)

 

What is stopping Wigan loaning players on month loan to teams playing their direct rivals and .....(yawn)

 

Wigan loan to Salford, Leigh loan to Barrow, Featherstone loan to Halifax -  what would happen is survival depended on .......(yawn)




#2912800 Coach to Swinton

Posted by Little Lion Man on 07 April 2014 - 12:41 PM

Booing is a little "pantomime" and is, in my opinion, only appropriate for match officials when you have lost or a decision goes against you. Beats swearing at them!  ;)
