  1. Very underrated Comedy Allo Allo.
  2. Well we were all set to book to Toulouse before the Bulls debacle. Trying to work out my motivational skills before trying to book. Links would be good.
  3. Jacksonville looking to join League 1 in next 4 years, I've just read.
  4. Think we need to see how Toronto go. Cats have been going 10+ years now and Toulouse have only just re-entered the English system. RL has been in France for 60+ years. Slow and steady me thinks is the way forward.
  5. Why is there a certain amount of baiting towards Adey and Johnoco? Uncalled for. Surely this thread has served it's purpose and it's time to jump on board - or not - with the new club, thread wise aswell.
  6. RL has for years not know it's botty from it's elbow. Way too many short term decisions. Continual lack of direction. Knee jerk as opposed to long term planning. How on earth people can get to run a sport without some kind of voting process is beyond me. Lewis put plans in place then they change as soon as he's gone. They have achieved very little (Rimmer and Wood) in the sport that to get where they are is bewildering.
  7. I'm struggling at the moment to "get into" this season. I am almost the eternal optimist but my optimism is wearing thin. Bad management and god awful decisions have lead us to this point. I can see another administration in the future. Why? Because it's all I've known in recent years. That is even if we had a billionaire in charge. Will I be there Versus KR. Will I feel like a Bull. Probably not.
  8. Would take Wayne Bennett, Mal Meninga, Matty Elliott, Stephen Kearney, Rohan Smith and John Kear. If it's not one of these I'll cry.
  9. Adey the donkeys he coached to a loss were surely 99% Lowes buys. He signed three permanent all off good ability: Moss Keyes and Chisholm. His new signings were mobile, and some of the forwards were fast and good ball handlers. Personally I feel they should have given him the season to see what he could do. I assume we are 12 points down so unless its a VERY experienced coach why not have the ironic continuity?
  10. Royally nissed meself. It must be purely financial as he can't be judged on results as it was basically Lowes squad. He then signed players of a certain style that he wanted for this season. I assume I will be underwhelmed by the new coach. Honestly if we have another admin in the next 5 years after 32 years 30 games a season I go to, I'm most probably out. It gets harder each time and I'm mister optimist.
  11. Well I'm mister optimist and I don't think we'll be whipped every week. Hull KR away week 1 is a bit of a rough 'un (can't the RFL delay our season a week or so?). A backline (if kept) of Campbell Ryan Oakes Pickersgill Caro Pryce Chisholm is a top 4/5 backline. I dare say we'll have one of the best HB partnership. Our foundation is still there. My major point is Rohan stays. I will say it now. Give him three years and we'll be SL. (or 5!) That's if they keep him on. I think we'll surprise people. 23 players "staying on" as it were says something about the club. Sad that Moss left as I feel he'll more appreciated and loved at the Bulls and it'd be better for him career wise but I suppose I'm biased. 1964 all over again so I can't be too judgemental on my own team as I started watching in 1986/87 so I was watching a reincarnation of the original Northern anyways...
  12. Has the Foundation gone too or was this separate entity?
  13. They're going to make Odsal the Wembley of the north.
  14. Wouldn't say that an 86 year old and 72 year old who are the only two really known to the general public, on this thread, is similar to last years strange events.
