  1. If Carlsberg did pre-season friendlies...

    The other end is Liverpool, nuff said.
  2. My sadly missed uncle uncle visited the doctors. He was getting the results of some tests for a very serious illness. Doctor "Sorry but you have only three minutes to live" Uncle "Oh my God, Doctor is there nothing you can do for me". Doctor "A soft boiled egg"?
  3. Put some paragraphs in it and I may read it, on a computer that style is just too hard to be bothered with deciphering.
  4. Why do RL clubs fold?

    The question was why do they FOLD, not how do they succeed,.
  5. If Carlsberg did pre-season friendlies...

    The "M62" has gone nowhere since 1895, it is a road to nowhere. Hunslet are not going to start taking support from Leeds, even if they did, it isn't growth. Hunslet are not going to attract new RL supporters in great numbers, Leeds have that market. Coventry, Skolars etc. have an open RL market, what holds them back is the lack of help from the centre. They are held back because for over 125 years we have sought to subsidise the next door neighbor than rather than help friends further afield. All the little "M62" <Laugh> expansionists</> always say they are in favour. as long as they get no money and they start at the bottom with no players and no access to Northern players. That is utter bowlocks, I would sooner you are are honest and say, I don't what clubs outside of the originals involved, this is my domain and the rest of you can F.O.
  6. Why do RL clubs fold?

    That is not why they fail, its the opposite.
  7. Why do RL clubs fold?

    Over ambitious management..

    So I hit return early answer the point. Do you suggest we starve our young to allow our old a slower, lingering death because we have no new money to help them. Alternative, let the new blood invigorate the group and bring in the money to sustain the elders. Your choice strangle the young at birth and let the old die, or help the young to thrive to help to feed the old.

    Go back to my edited post.
  10. If Carlsberg did pre-season friendlies...

    Eskimos feed their young until they can stand proud and add to the group. The young look after the old because they then have the strength to do so.
  11. But you are the one that said maybe, not your bogey man from project fear, you are now edging your bets more toward won't. Is there a danger to jobs on the scales predicted or will it be just a very small handful that you couldn't care less about. Maybe implies that you think it could very well be true, as opposed to won't which means you believe it will not happen.
  12. It may have escaped your notice but we have NOT left the EU.
  13. If Carlsberg did pre-season friendlies...

    This is true, the reality is that these clubs should be receiving massive help to move them on and develop faster in these outlying posts of RL, if that means taking money from "M62" clubs at all levels then so be it. That is the reality.
  14. Its amazing how all those Tories that would like Thatcher to be declared a "Saint" are the same ones that hold the exact opposite views to Mother Maggie's on being at the heart of the European Union.
