Reading that warms the cockles of my heart. What fantastic news that the club has awesome lights, speakers and showers. The phone is red hot with applications for the head coaches position, and in the mean time they have a (very) hungry young player coach taking over the reigns. It is also fantastic that a director will take time to show the UK's no1 fan around during his day release from hospital.
Back in the real world however this isn't some competition about who has the best shower its a season about playing rugby league, if they finish in the bottom 2 nobody will care less about fancy lights in the kells end on a summers afternoon when they at home to Oxford in front of 250 fans.
They need a good coach in place ASAP, the phone might be red hot with Don Gailers and look what they did to him. We survived the drop last year because the bulk of our squad was in place and we have a good DR agreement. We were also very lucky to get somebody like Phil in who has turned everything into positives on the field. They have a thin squad and a dodgy DR because Rochdale can and have put an oar in.
Oh but hang on the kells end speakers are fantastic ! Is it any wonder they get called deluded?
No chance carter is a 6 .. Being able to spin a ball about and play 6 under pressure is a totally different ball game ! The half needs to be a specialist whatever avenue we go down...
Ha ha I'm feeling very worried as I agree with you! I'm sure he had a go under Charlo & Oggy and while Brett is a top player and very versatile I think this season we need a specialist half. Which it looks like is in the bag but just may be a couple of months off arriving.
Brett has had one so so game, it's hardly time to drop him. It was his first game outside his new centre and first game of the season, once they know each other's game I think it will be an awesome combination.
Ok that's fair enough - but say 2 paying adults and 2 kids - inc a drink etc your looking at £50... That's very expensive that's all.. I know the club needs to charge that but I think the price puts a few off ...
Ok then how would you finance all these superstar players you keep complaining we need? If everyone paid £5 there would need to be a gate in excess of 3k to make money instead of 1k paying £15. Realistic?
Or is this just your latest wind up because the squad recruitment has gone pretty well so you can't use that topic?
Another great signing,
Welcome to Town Tom and good work BOD again.
You know it's a good signing when all the Jambos at work are quiet! One is even a bit down about how we are signing a young lad with loads of popotential and they have signed a 35 yr old - Happy days!
I agree Monkeydo if somebody came out and said there will be news next week some on here would twine that they want it this week.
To be honest I'm getting sick of all this negativity. I am more than confident that everyone connected to the club is doing their best to get the most complete team on the park as possible, if anyone else can do a better job stick your hand up and get on with it. I think Trouty gives a fair picture of what will go on behind the scenes with players on the other thread, and is always a good read.
I personally couldn't care less where the players come from as long as they do the business on the pitch. If it is a loan player then as long as they give 100% that is good enough for me. I don't buy it that they have to come half way round the world to make a difference.
We all want good news as soon as possible regarding signings but it's not worth having a go at the club about. Just think back 5 years and remember how far the club has come in this time, then go another 5 years back......
fan of the year is voted for by club fans, maybe if you were as good as stephen daniel you might get a go for your club i will continue to work behind the scenes at mine. the phrase being fan of the year try it marra.
But I'm not as good as Stephen, he deserves to be put forward. We have lots of fans at Workington who do loads of work behind the scenes and I'm sure next year a different one will have their hard work recognised. It won't be me as I don't have the spare time to put in. But I do what little I can to help the club. I would never belittle the work any fan including yourself put into the club they love.
The difference is he doesn't go on forums including this one when Charlo was in charge boasting about any inside information he may have or pretends he has to groom his own ego. ( the nodding heads posts you do when somebody beats you to the punch on deluded.com are genius!) Although I stand to be corrected I think if he was nominated again next year I think he would stand aside and let another deserving Town fan have the crown for a year.
Fridge door syndrome is the term psychologists use for people that like to see their drawings put on the fridge door so they can receive the pat on their back for the work. Others draw a fantastic drawing and the self satisfaction of their hard work is enough for them to be content without the need to receive any plaudits for their work.
Keep up the good work you do for your club and keep posting on the forums as you are very entertaining and a well deserved double fan of the year, please go for the hat trick and you will get the holy grail of the trip to Oz in 2015 as you deserve it.
cant say i know haven96 i think its haven94 the man in the know
Don't let your ego run away with you pal, I changed the year on purpose. You like your ego stroked by constantly posting your insider knowledge and by not letting others have a go at fan of the year. If you didn't pick up on it I was taking the Michael out this fact so changed your name slightly. Is that easier to understand now?
People who I know who watch Egremont and Wath Brow consider Dixon the better player.
However I don't know, because I don't watch amateur rugby. From what I saw of JPB at Workington in the friendly game some time ago, he was ok but I wouldn't say he stood out.
With regards to wether Dixon signs for the jambos or not, I can't say I'm bothered.
I trust The Town directors judgement in which amateur players to offer contracts to. Let's face it over the last few season their choice of player has been outstanding in contrast to whitehavens which has proved an unmitigated disaster.
But Terry don't you know there are another wave of PNG players on their way to the wreck to save the day again?
I think big Rod and his mates have put the word around about only playing half a season and getting and account full of cash and they are jumping at the chance. Haven96 has just bought a 5 bed luxury gaff on Mirehouse. He is gonna put them all up for free so he can be best mates with them all and get a hat trick of fan of the year titles. Some pesky Hunslet fan stole his dream trip to Oz this year so he is gonna make sure it's nailed on for next year make no mistake.
