    Yorkshire Cup Double-Header at Rams

    Keighley's position must be desperate as coach Craig Lingard has tendered his resignation. His interview can be heard on BBC Raddio Leeds. He says he hasn't been paid for five months and the players not since August. His back room staff still await payment too. Nathan Graham has left the club and according to Lingard, will not return. Lingard is to sit down with Steve Gill to discuss matters and both will, together, stay with the club or leave, depending on the outcome of the discussions. It is not clear if Keighley will be able to participate in the Yorkshire Cup. Training is due to commence tomorrow, but will not. Listening to the interview, it does not bode well for the Cougars.

    Jose Kenga won't be one them as he has joined Rochdale.

    Steve Lingard - Passed Away

    I think we signed FIVE from Cas with money from the sale of Mick Stephenson and they were: Terry Biscombe Steve Brunyee Ben Fowler and two others I invite anyone to name as I cannot recall their names.

    San Miguel in south stand bar

    Funny you should mention tea. At the Fans' Forum someone at the bar ordered his alcoholic beverages and a cup of tea. The barman said he'd no idea of the cost, offered it free of charge and said he'd never never been asked for tea before.

    Interesting development at Sheffield

    The only Noble thing about Bradford is some former player.

    For evaluated read evaporated, exhausted, finished. Must try and remember to look at that productive tics thingy.

    Trout is currently on holiday so we cannot yet determine whether he will re-sign or not. Walshaw needs a secondary job as funding for his management of the 4G pitches has evaluated. Greenwood thinks Sykes will continue with Dewsbury. The new coach also knows Gareth Moore well, having played alongside him. No mention of Ansell in the fourteen players who have signed, so I assume he has been released. Rob Spicer has retired according to our Chairman.

    Fans Forum

    Yes, GOR, everybody left the Royal Suite in positive mood. Lee Greenwood came across as approachable, joined in the banter and outlined his coaching ideas. Better not give too much to the opposition here, suffice to say he will not blame the referee if things go wrong; not fearing disciplinary measures by the RFL, but the referee getting back at us the next time he officiates at one of our matches.

    Players For 2019

    Dom Speakman's business is thriving, I understand and time away through travelling from the St Helens area and training doesn't help. Widnes might suit him.

    The Dale Morton show.

    Also irregular full back and occasional goal kicker.

    Wish list

    Or Batley/Bali.

    Wish list

    If the new coach is appointed next week then that's another pointer to it not being Pryce; he's of to Bali (no not Batley) after Sunday's match, to join his family.

    Wish list

    Whoever the new coach might be I hope he selects a team of in-form individuals, not his favourites and that he coaches attacking rugby and a solid defence (the latter like London at the weekend).

    San Miguel in south stand bar

    Hey Grumpy, from where I am currently ensconced, San Miguel is either €1.50 or €3 for 400ml (depending on whether it is the three hour 'happy hour' or not). How does that compare?

    Ned to step down..

    Still waiting for the Freedom of Information form to arrive which, once complete and received, will allow me to ask for the news we all require. I might be able to tell you around Bocong Dsy!

    1st September

    Signing ex Leigh and Widnes players? We couldn't afford any of them is my guess.

    Leigh home

    It's nice to be proved wrong............ sometimes! I thought Phil Hodgson's report of the game in LE read like he couldn't shower Leigh with enough praise because they turned up with only 13 players.

    Leigh home

    I cannot see us beating Leigh, even if they have only 14 fit men. We might have 17, but on last week's showing, how many care about playing for the club? Dewsbury 16-36 Leigh FTS: Ryder MoM: Sykes Att:: 1102

    I thought he was coaching Siddal.

    Rochdale away

    Ten up after eight minutes and I thought it would be like our previous trip this year, but we gave in then. Free m being MoM last week, Guzdek was the opposite today. He dropped the ball at least three times and didn't seem to want to run with the ball, but quickly passed the ball and Glover didn't bother trying to make the tackle as they scored their first try. Too many players looked like they wanted to be away, either from the club or on holiday. They either couldn't hold on to the ball, sent out wild passes or spoke out of turn to the referee. I did hear that three players are on their way to Sheffield and two of those were poor today. I heard one Rochdale supporter declare that we must be poor if Hornets could best us. They have (twice) and we were.
