Monkey/back removal completed. Let's hope we can push on from here.

Yes, as NS says, you just sit there for hours waiting. Impossible to warm up, apart from walking to the middle. In an extraordinarily long stand, the next man in might get switched just to give him a break. But there has to be someone padded up watching and waiting.

Oof! And a mere four and a half months later comes a riposte!


The worldwide interweb eh?


I wonder if any tight-shorted, tattoed players/bearded hipsters/folk clocking off from the pits of the frozen north will have time to reply to you in a similar timeframe.

Enjoyed that. Mindst, I enjoyed last night too. Come to think of it, I generally do enjoy a game of RL. Well done both sides.

Sounds like Fev's shopping list for next season, oh hang on Mr Moneybags has left :lol:


Thanks for the emoticon, that way we know your comment is hilarious!


Three ex-Fev players in there anyway.


###### list. On current form I think Sharp, Worthington, Mendeika, and Ellis could be in there.

I know the there's-no-one-else argument and it's a perfectly valid reason why Cook wasn't sacked on the spot after the aussie tour, one of the most disgraceful efforts of recent decades, which is saying something.


But now it's got to the point where simply anyone will do. Carberry, Compton, Lees, Boycott's Mother would all get more runs and literally anyone could skipper the side better.


Make Bell the fall guy for the rest of the summer, he's senior player and doing sod all to justify his place anyway.

Just goes to show that top 8 for the playoffs is about 2 too many. All those clubs have had mediocre seasons.

There is an easy solution. Won't go into it now as it is being considered.


Do tell.

I can't get hold of a copy myself, but I believe Terry Clawson's autobiography "All The Wrong Moves" is an absolute classic. It was self published with assistance from Yorkshire Art Circus, but they sold out quickly and sadly a second print wasn't done. Any copies available on Amazon, etc were snapped up in no time when Terry died.


Well worth persevering with to try and get a copy. Open, honest, hilarious, touching. Terry wrote it out himself in biro on A4 sheets. No ghost-writer, very little editing. Brilliant.

#2952443 Fev make bid for Huddersfield Big 3

Posted by marklaspalmas on 30 June 2014 - 03:24 PM

Does this mean that Billy Slater, Sonny Bill and the rest wont be at Post Office Road next season. Billy will be upset he had been promised a two bed property in Ackworth


Get your facts straight. It was a three bed.

#2951840 Major new investors

Posted by marklaspalmas on 29 June 2014 - 05:56 PM

Then by all means, do tell.


Mate, we don't know.


We dont know if Feisal is still the major shareholder and if he is, how that will work.


We don't know what his motives were in the first place. I still think it was about bigging up his own business.


We don't know the financial commitments we've made in terms of player contracts.


We don't know how MC will regain control of the board.


All this land stuff is more speculation, and we've had lots of that.
