#3181472 23 Aug: Middle 8s - Bradford Bulls v Salford Red Devils KO 3pm

Posted by Red Willow on 23 August 2015 - 08:10 PM

Typical Salford, we always have to make it harder than it ought to be. Bradford played well from the commentary I heard.


Then again so would say Salford did it just to P off Leigh,

#3172481 South Trafford Raiders - some food news !

Add Bury Broncos in to the mix, they have really built from nothing. The hardest battle for League is to get people through the door the first time, after that they love it.

If it is the usual bitter Salford fan she falls out with the club regardless of who is in charge. She worked in the club shop as a teenager and left under difficult circumstances, this seems to have impacted on her opinions.


I hope Sheens is the man to tell the doc to keep out. Marwen should actually concentrate on the business side of the club and ensure he bills are paid before it becomes a public dispute. He should also make sure all the players are paid on time.

#3159038 10% pay rise for MPs

Posted by Red Willow on 16 July 2015 - 03:20 PM

I've had pension changes and I am yet to receive the 1% that was due in August 2014, they are still in discussions about it. This year's pay deal is now due in a matter of weeks and I have no idea when that will even start to be discussed.


Yet MPs get 10% of course we are all in this together, we have had pay restraint for 5 years. wonder what my pay cut is in real terms?

#3141708 Koukash plans more signings and says 'Will reveal all next Tuesday'

Posted by Red Willow on 16 June 2015 - 06:02 PM

Not convinced having Booby Goulding around the club is a great idea. Hopefully Sheens will keep the club running in the right direction.


Whatever he has in store as a Salford fan I have got to see my team play for an extra couple of seasons and for that I am grateful.

#3138837 I discovered Rugby League at the age of 48

Posted by Red Willow on 11 June 2015 - 05:59 PM

Welcome regardless of age or how long it took.


RL is a family game in more ways than one. We may insult each other, fall out but will come together to battle a common enemy.


What this post does show is how people get addicted and all we need is get them to the game. Maybe that's what the doc is trying to do.

It sounds like something on WA1. Shocked at the BBC sinking so low

#3121491 spuggies and jackdaws and hedgehogs and frogs

Anyone got any advice to control squirrels? Preferably humane.


Wrecking trees and generally stealing all the birds food, need to be sorted out somehow.

They don't like Chilli powder, you can add it to the feeders and the birds don't mind but the squirrels do. I used it to keep them off my bulbs.


My husband also greases the poles  that don't have baffles on them. It is funny watching thm slide down the pole.

#3105672 Gareth Hock, Challenge Cup

Posted by Red Willow on 13 April 2015 - 05:29 PM

50% of wages is still a huge saving for Salford, and he is no longer at the club.


I would have thought that the confidentially clause would be for the details not that it exists

#3105002 Gareth Hock, Challenge Cup

Posted by Red Willow on 12 April 2015 - 03:10 PM

I don't think the Doc actually cares and this is more about setting the stall out for a legal battle. Hock isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer and if he decides to play it will cost him dear. I've heard Salford are paying 50% of his wages under his previous contract and if he takes the field the Doc will sue him to recover previous payments and he will forfeit future payments.


As for Chase he isn't a lynchpin he is a player to make something happen or lose you the game. Before today I was more worried about the number of forwards missing but we seemed to do OK. I'd let Lannon play and wind up Hock.

#3101715 6 Apr: The Super League Match Thread (Easter Part Two)

Posted by Red Willow on 06 April 2015 - 06:05 PM

well I've enjoyed this holiday weekend.


Salford have toughened up, played a large portion of the game 2 men down with Patterson and Tommy Lee going off not to return. Thought Gelling was lucky not to join Weller and Bateman as he actually started it. Both deserved the red for continuing to fight even after the sin binning.


Bubble will probably burst at the weekend V Leeds but intend to enjoy these 2 victories

#3092284 Salford : Are they locked in contractually to use AJ Bell?

Posted by Red Willow on 20 March 2015 - 08:58 PM

People make a lot of excuses for not going to games. We can't compete with football and shouldn't play on the same day as the big 2.


Playing games at the smaller stadium at the Etihad wont help crowds Marwen just needs to hold his nerve and make the stadium work.

#3081760 That clip of Rangi Chase...

Posted by Red Willow on 02 March 2015 - 06:54 PM

Because the whole team went missing. The pack actually turned up on Saturday and Rangi was playing at fullback.


The moaning about other performances is why the sport is view as petty.

#3075905 How refreshing was tonight's commentary

Posted by Red Willow on 21 February 2015 - 01:58 PM

To make it perfect can we remove Cummings from the commentary box as well, just use him at half time or the end to explain the calls. Hopefully this will also change the focus of the game from the ref to the players.

#3073945 This week's disciplinary

Posted by Red Willow on 17 February 2015 - 09:20 PM

I hope Salford can fine him, in the last year he must have been banned for at least 3rd of the season if not more. I wouldn't be sorry if he left the club.
