#3043160 Happy 70th Birthday Town....and big news announced....

Posted by The Voodooguru on 09 December 2014 - 10:12 PM

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?

Stadium money and sponsorship
NEC money's comes from Nuclear work which is paid for by the NDA

NMP money's come from Nuclear work which is paid for by the NDA

also don't forget the NMP sponsorship you get


So as usual your FACT is in your head, you can't back up your claim. Are you never embarrassed when you re read your posts?

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.

I suppose it depends on the amateur and their aspirations. Our players have found a new level of professionalism under Phil. I've heard that some players have been asked to put nearly a stone on in muscle over the close season with meal planners of up to 8 meals a day. Steak for breakfast anyone?
This might scare some amateur players off but the ones with the right attitude will realise that this is the commitment they have to make. The pinnacle of their career might be a BARLA tour, or it might be like Lunty's with challenge cup finals and international tours down under. Until they make that step up they will never know.

Wonder if they will keep Seymour, suppose now there is more cash to spend there's no limit to what they can afford. Another 3 PNG's, 2 Aussies and 5 French and because they all will live on Kells they will class them as locals!!

So he's intentionally attacked a player to the head with an illegal tackle which could have broken his jaw etc. and that's deemed a minor misdemeanour !!!!!

 

Can't speak.

 

 

I think you're being a tad dramatic , I assume you know macca to know what his intentions were.

 

 

No one is saying it was accident bar yourself. 

Homeandawayer said it was intentional, you, defending the player then questioned if it was intentional . The opposite of intentional is accidental ergo you are suggesting it was, or could have been accidental. I was being sarcastic as I'm sure it was intentional.

The guy isn't evil, it's rugby ffs, but to put a player out of the game with an illegal tackle isn't something to be boasting about like he has been on social media. We have had angel vs lucifer on here which is getting over the top, but it would have been exactly the same if Burke had done the same to him and we had won on the Dews site. Your defence of your player is a bit misjudged as even level headed players lose their temper, remember Sinfield? At the time the game was getting a bit of needle in it, your hero got it wrong and should have walked. He has been found guilty and now banned.

Good luck in the next round, although it's starting to leave a bitter taste now.




#2986680 Who's your money on to take the last relegation place.

Posted by The Voodooguru on 01 September 2014 - 04:42 PM

Fingers crossed its Keighley just for their lovely chairman.
Was text an interesting crack yesterday by a Haven fan mate who says Woods is out and a familiar face is returning as coach for next season. Can't see it happening though as H4E wouldn't sanction it given his views on the current training regime!


#2974841 Town vs Donny away

Posted by The Voodooguru on 10 August 2014 - 05:42 PM

The RfL have to make an example of batley and send out a message to other clubs regarding the rules.i would rather things were decided on the pitch and no doubt Mr mullet will run back to deluded with this saying we are wanting a deduction because we lost today which isn't the case its just that rules are rules.

I think Mr Mullet will want a points penalty as much as you do pal, I think you and him must be either family or ex lovers as you are obsessed with each other on the Jam Forum!!

Maybe taking it a bit too far but you get my drift lol.

I think some of the comments are harsh on Kayle. While he hasn't been a stand out performer this season I think he has been a valuable squad player especially given the size of our squad. Do we know for certain he hadn't been carrying any injuries while playing ? Players go in and out of form and confidence.
It wasn't that long ago Forber was getting the same sort of comments and would anyone say that now?
He's one of our lads so let's not give him a kicking in public, I hope he comes back from injury and proves his worth.
We are starting to sound like them lot down the road having a go at our own lads.

Seymour a has been.If I were you I would wait and see how he goes on the field before making statements based on bitter and twisted jealousy.

Davo, I think Seymour has to be a wait and see. He might still have some of the magic or maybe not. I wonder why a bigger club hasn't given him a try if all his demons are behind him, lets face it a couple of SL clubs could seriously use him if he is sorted out.

Ainscough and The big PNG prop were all gonna be big things (in terms of playing not just size of shirt) in recent seasons but never lived up to the hype.

#2891785 Team and predictions for Swinton

Posted by The Voodooguru on 02 March 2014 - 08:41 PM

Well considering the conditions I find it hard to have a go at any player. We played into a driving wind and rain in the first half that dropped considerably by the second half. We did what we had to in the second and while we maybe could have denied them a BP it was a hard game to play in.

Swinton looked like they were set up to play expansive rugby which wasn't gonna happen today at DP, Penny & Bridge etc were never gonna make a huge difference. I thought we defended superbly. Anyone can say that we could have done more offensively but it ended up a war in the mud and on the whole I thought our lads were fantastic. Callum, Jarred, Liam McAvoy were superb and nobody let the team down.

Give Butch and the lads some credit please, it was a great effort. You have gotta give Swinton credit for keeping at it for the full 80 mins even down to 12 men. Our defensive effort was awesome.
