  1. Cannot understand all the talk about DR and loan players at Fev when AFAIK Bradford had 3 loan players playing in Charnock,Philbin and Howarth.

    Learn from the three mistakes

    Blue Pike FACT you have not said when earlier.FACT Work started the day after the last game of the season and this work consisted of more than just removing the old grass so again when should this have been started please

    Learn from the three mistakes

    I am not disputing the last 2 points but I question the accuracy of the first. You cannot seriously expect Rovers to give up home advantage last season when it was important we finished in the top 2.Or should we have given up home advantage for the play-off games? As soon as the last game was played the fence was removed and a levelling off and drainage was done (by the stand volunteers). When they were ready to lay the turf very heavy rain hampered this (and the 20+ people who helped will testify to this).As far as I know the majority 0f the soil as knitted but there are problems with the drainage and the subsoil. As for the lost revenue it will cause cash-flow problems but hopefully the friendlies will be reversed next season. Maybe the club need to ask for volunteers to help with the pitch very soon.

    Stadium developments

    At one time Post Office Road did have crush barriers. I am guessing they were removed due to health and safety because I do know the capacity was greatly reduced. So when you visit in a few weeks time you will have to sit in 1 of the 2 relatively modern stands or stand on the ancient terracing (the new stand is progressing but quite a bit to do yet). I wonder if all clubs within Wakefield MDC can say the same?

    Get those wagons rolling!

    I thought it deserved a new thread, the stands have started to be delivered. Firstly it will be the concrete steps/terracing and there will be a few loads a day. I wonder if there is any spare JCB earth movers from Glasshoughton or Newmarket we could borrow?

    Now 30 - 26 and by my reckoning 5 tries each, only Marc Jacksons goalkicks separating the sides. Don't think thay are allowed first teamers, Maureen. It used to be anyone player more than so many first team matches was ineligible.

    Barrow Match

    It looks like the Barrow match will remain on Sunday 22/8 and will not be brought forward to Thursday 19/8. This is because Barrow play their re-arranged match v. Widnes on Weds. 18/8. Probably better for the club attendance wise although ###### for me since I am on holiday. I was hoping it was on Sky then I could watch it half pi-sed, now I will be getting updates via a computer and mobile. Got the hint' son!
