    Still worth a visit to savour the atmosphere and watch the tumbleweed blow past. Having moved from the area, I really miss being insulted by the drunks and Harry ramps in the Princess of Wales, watching the drug dealers and pimps cruising past at full drum and bass in their Audis and all the other little things that make our town centre so special.
  2. Thanks for the memories..........

    Seem to remember the year Ned left was similar , only backwards way round if you know what I mean.
  3. Wakefield to stay at Belle Vue

    Good points BSJ - can't argue with that.
  4. Why did we spend £10k......

    what about putting the scoreboard in the empty zone. The more abrasive Rams posters on here might comment that that leaves you with plenty of options. I won't lower myself though, particularly as our own attendances this year, are averaging somewhere around our points against tally.
  5. Wakefield to stay at Belle Vue

    I am to be honest, getting a little fed up with us being used as a bargaining chip by the Wildcats. I doubt they ever had any intention of ground sharing. I watched Trinity in the Neil Fox era (I was poached by Dewsbury in 1965), so I have a soft spot for them, but I think it's time for them to put up or shut up with regard to the Tetleys stadium. The bottom line is that Wakefield Council (like most) can barely fund public services, so they aren't going to be chucking money at a project which will benefit two or three thousand trinity die hards any day soon. That leaves them with the sugar daddy option, but if a club with Bradford's support can't find a half decent backer, Trinity certainly aren't going to attract one. I can only assume they are trying to hold on until the new Glasshoughton Five towns Stadium is built. (is that still in progress ?)

    There was a Tom Hemingway who tore us to shreds in a televised match a few years back. Wonder what happened to him ?
  7. Daniel I to Fev

    And end up back in the Championship anyway - probably without a club for half the season. Anybody know if AB is still with us ?
  8. Toulouse, Semi-Final Shield

    Just returned from Montpelier. It's cool, overcast and occasionally wet. More of the same forecast, so temperatures in the South of France shouldn't be an excuse. Our defence is a different matter.
  9. Bradford Bulls Game

    Silverback, it's nice to know that i am not the only one who finds the burgers delicious, even though, according to the ball and chain, I should find them disgusting. There have been a number of occasions in recent seasons, when the burgers and a pint of San Miguel have been my only solace.
  10. Wilsden Ram RIP

    That is very sad. His contributions will be missed, particularly his willingness to provide a link between the club and the forum. Condolences to his family.
  11. Batley Game

    Born to suffer - that's us.
  12. And next up

    I think the key words were " 32 new people" . I can understand how that would confuse dogstew.
  13. Batley Game

    Just saying.
  14. Batley Game

    On the other hand, if GM was in charge, we would be demanding that he put out a strong side on the grounds that NO matches against the dogs are unimportant - not even friendlies.
  15. Dewsbury Faithful Sponsorship Latest

    No, that was my carer. Good luck with the project Coolie - onward and upward.
