  1. I really don't know what the RFL are thinking. I agree with SJD and many others I've spoke too. If the Toronto millionaires want to play every game in England, that's fair enough, but how do expect a player from any team get on a plane for 7 and a half hours ( that's only the flight time, not the time to get to the airport and waiting in departures ) and stay in that country for 3/4 days. Lets say they travelled on a Friday early morning, get there by tea time to the hotel. On Saturday they get a bit of practice while being a bit jet lagged. Play the game on Sunday. On Monday they travel back home, get into Manchester or any other airport about 4 or 5. Travel home too where they live and be back work on a Tuesday. I don't think so. That's only the players. Were not all rich. How do you expect a supporter to book a long weekend to Canada. The total expense would be too great. You wouldn't go away for a long weekend, you'd have to book a full holiday. It's just ridiculous. These are the other places we could go with the same flight time: Tehran, Iran Tbilisi, Georgia New York, Usa Before the RFL conquer the world, concentrate on the south of England where Union has a stronghold
  2. I'm surprised no one has mentioned that Warrington are visiting us on the 31st January. Are there any more lined up. Think we had 4 last year didn't we.
  3. We only had 12 home games last season so were only down 2 at this point. The first 8 games of the season were friendly's or cup matches. I should hope we will have friendly's this year, and as for the cup matches i don't know what or if their are any ( maybe someone could enlighten us ). So really with a good cup run we could end up with more games than last year, depending on the draw of course
  4. AGM

    I certainly don't proclaim to know anything about the AOA Alan but as a debenture holder, I would of been ###### to find out if the club had wasted hundreds of pounds advertising in the National Press. How do you that the club secretary hasn't wrote to these debenture holders who live far and wide.
  5. Just wanted to say that the collection that was done in and out of the ground was absolutely unbelievable. Makes me proud to live in this town, The generosity was overwhelming. Well done to all.
  6. Its truly a tricky one that Michael. I don't know if its a shrewd move by the Hospice or not. If it generates more money for this fantastic charity then brilliant. But I kind of agree with some who have wrote on the football forum. Barrow football is trying to generate money out of the charity which I don't agree with.
  7. Is the game on the radio today
  8. New season, New start and all that. Don't know who got the MOM but to me I could'nt pick one. They all played fantastic. Well done to the coaching team. There seams to be a bit of comradery in the team. Well done all
