#3081211 MOM Fev vs Bradford

Posted by PonteBlue on 01 March 2015 - 08:10 PM

1. Wood

2. Sharpe

3. Irwin


Wood a clear leader. Ran in well and constantly talking / organising. Just 2nd for me Sharpe, makes a lot of yards with tacklers on his back. You learn a lot about players when things not going your way. Think Wood and Sharpe set a good example.

Hi Mo'


Am ok to come down one day next week - it's half term so might get a few more takers?

#3065043 Learn from the three mistakes

Posted by PonteBlue on 02 February 2015 - 12:20 PM

After all the shenanigans of last season, at times I was left wondering would we have a club never mind anything else. Then like a phoenix rising from the ashes we see the volunteers carrying on their good work, and MC and the board delivering a squad most people could only have dreamt about, yes there may have been some things not right but above all else we should be shouting from the rooftops what we are achieving at this club this season. If people have a problem with how the club is run go straight to the man at the top I'm sure he will accommodate you with an honest answer. I appreciate we all have different opinions but this season should be about positivity and generating interest back into this great club.

Agree 100% Knottla.


Lets get back to, as you rightly say 'shouting from the roof top's'


If you draw up a list of all the good stuff which is happening at the club any short term issues, like the pitch, instantly fade away.

For me;


Thanks PRUFC.

Must have made a few quid behind the bar.

#3010442 Online Fans' Man of the Season 2014

Yep, Ellis about right.


Think Mendieka might have pushed him close if not injured.

#3005645 Championship Finals Day

Posted by PonteBlue on 01 October 2014 - 12:14 PM

Think of where Terry Hudson scored the match winning try against Bradford in 83. Can still see his poker face now as he got mobbed. And Jeff Grayshon lying on the floor having been poleaxed by John Marsden moments before.


Remeber it well.


Still got the bad back from helping carry Dave Hobb's off the field at end of match on our shoulders. Never did get my pit helmet back, which he put on as we carried him off (back in them days some Rovers fans wore pit helmets to semi finals and finals)



#2980957 Next Season

Enjoyed forum last night.


After meeting spoke with MC, other attendees and some of the volunteers working on the ground. Got a very positive feeling that we are back on the right track. Obviously still lots to do, and we do have considerable debt, but, right people in place to maintain upward curve.

Good performances today, especially with off field distractions. For me:-

1. Sammut
2. Mendieka
3. Flanagan

Need to let dust settle. Very suprising given comments by FN last Monday.

In Mark Campbell we trust.

Come on Rovers!

#2894512 Championship Finals Day

Posted by PonteBlue on 07 March 2014 - 12:47 PM

Really good news.


Best venue for the finals day. Think the crowd will be up whoever get's there.


Agree, 2007 v Oldham was a top day out.

#2892186 Featherstone Rovers VS North Wales Crusaders

Posted by PonteBlue on 03 March 2014 - 12:36 PM

Dave your maths are really way off, at a guess we took approx 400 fans, people are only stating a fact that some of the foul and abusive language by a minority of our "fans" left a lot to be desired. It's nowt to do about how much money we spent while in Wrexham, it's about respect for others etc

Aye, agree with Maureen.


Think we have distributed tickets to local primary schools this week for the Rochdale game. Let's hope their first experience of the Rovers is a good one and they want to come back!
