I know I'm biased but I thought that York were far the better team today. I'm going deaf and, by my own admission I'm an old git but could someone please tell me the winning number(s) in the half time draw.

I'm neither an "old git"nor am I going deaf thank goodness, at least I don't think I am, but I didn't hear anything about the half time draw result either Dave.

In the next round wonder where it will be played?.

Thanks S.K. It must have been on before 500pm when I put Radio Cumbria on. Should be a cracker going by our results in this round. Fingers crossed for Bootham Crescent?

Cas have got planning permission to build there new ground today, wonder if there's will be ready before ours?.

Actually, it's a toss up which club is involved in the longest running saga, them or us. You could throw Wakefield into the mix as well.

Are you going to give me a chance to defend my title this year Andy or do I have to retire as champ?
I know you're a busy chap and there were a couple of weeks where it was carried over to the following week last season but that didn't detract from the enjoyment. I hope you can manage to find the time again as it always adds a bit of interest to the season and sparks a bit of rivalry with our friends from south Leeds.

As long as they realise any teeth they may find probably came from some unfortunate rugby player and not some Roman general or they'll be digging for ever more!

and now Simon Brown signs for the Champions, a class act

When he wants to be he's not a bad player but you didn't see many tears shed on the Knights site when he left us at the end of last season.

#2900365 Today's Game.

Posted by Clarence St on 16 March 2014 - 09:14 PM

That match today was the best I've seen in ages! Those young Knights lads showed everything from total commitment, athleticism, enthusiasm, scored some brilliant tries, you name it, they had it in spades! If anyone starts trying to pick a m.o.m. on here, don't bother. There were 17 lads on there today giving their all and they were all man of the match for me! The only disappointment was the size of the gate but that's not unusual these days for the cup games. Hard luck on those that didn't see it, thank goodness I did! Well done to everyone concerned and thank you for such wonderful entertainment, Keep it going lads!!

#2779912 Knights v Batley

Posted by Clarence St on 01 September 2013 - 08:28 PM

He's actually been improving of late, but that was a shocker today. Missed a couple of obvious knock-ons (although not helped by his touch judges, TBF), and then went unnecessarily red-card happy with five minutes to go. I can only guess that the York players were giving him a load of verbals for him to act so dramatically with the second sending-off. The first red card should have been a sin-binning (which would have had the same effect anyway).

I don't think his performance assisted Batley's win as we really stepped it up in the last quarter, but he did contributed to an undeserved margin of defeat for your guys. If you keep that squad together, you'll be straight back up.

I was sat in the stand and on two occasions in the 2nd half the touch judge signalled to the ref. but was ignored. Surely, in that case, the touch judge should run on with his flag raised. Once was for a Batley knock on and the other was when a Knight's player reefed the ball out. The referee just played on oblivious to both the offences and to the touch judge's signals. He gave me the impression he was wondering what was for tea, he certainly didn't seem to be watching the same game as everyone else.

#2752200 Woods loses Knights claim

Posted by Clarence St on 23 July 2013 - 05:20 PM

I don't know the ins and outs of the recent court case between the Knights and Dave Woods but it seems a bit like six of one and half a dozen of the other to me when it comes to apportioning blame for the outcome. As Peter G. said it appears it was all made worse because the club didn't pay him what he was legally entitled to and sacking a person by email is something I would certainly not like to have happened to me during my working life.

  One thing I DO know and remember which I am suprised nobody has mentioned is that wonderful afternoon at Warrington when we beat Oldham and secured promotion. That was my most memorable day in supporting York for over 60 years and I don't care what anyone else says, Dave Woods was the coach that day and he was our hero and the best thing since sliced bread. Nothing that happened in court last week will ever change that for me! IF the allegations of claiming wrongful travel expenses were true, well of course that's disappointing but it still won't alter my thoughts on that day in Warrington. After all the happenings in the House of Commons in recent times one could almost be forgiven for thinking it was a national pastime!
