  1. Route66

    Grand Final Crowd

    Grand final crowd looked great on bbc news this morning,any seats unsold tend to be the top tiers which to be honest offer a poor outlook of the game.

    New Stadium for Workington

    Looking at the design all the ground covered in,bound to have a better atmosphere than derwent park which is essentially a 10000 capacity bowl with open ends,get it built asap
  3. Route66

    New Stadium for Workington

    The design looks good,says a mix of seats and standing which is excellent news,now just got to get it past those that aren't happy with progress in the area and the speedway lot who are starting to kick up a fuss.Let's give the sporting public rugby/football a facility to be proud of.

    New league structure revealed

    Out of interest how many players in the championship/league One would manage in super league if they chose to go full time ,my guess is a lot more than people think
  5. Just came accross this thread at the moment relistening to German time traveling techno legends Kraftwerks autobahn, years ahead of its time in 1974 and still ahead of its time 44 years later
  6. Route66

    Under 19s/Academy/Reserves

    Youth development at all age groups should be a priority either on their own or combined with haven,someone needs to have a good look at the reds in the community set up and see how they can put out teams from under8 to under18 to play against academies around the country,at no cost to the club
  7. Route66

    Ticket prices

    To be fair to Whitehaven there are hundreds of rl supporters in west cumbria who don't go to matches anymore due to the cost and once you stop going regularly you soon find something else to do,haven took a gamble on this unfortunately the appetite for league 1 is not there
  8. Route66

    Keighley in trouble once again.

    Sorry to see a club like Keighley struggle still remember them travelling in big numbers and being pioneers during cougarmania,really think you have to look at the changes in the sport to see how a club's support can dwindle over that time. Have to also say that there is nothing that would tempt me to a 3 o'clock kick off anywhere in this weather
  9. Will try these books soon,love Cornwells books,also Conn Igguldens war of the roses and his genghis khan series. Best book though of historical fiction would be Tim Willocks 'the religion ' set in Malta.Always looking for recomendations on any genre and recently loved Granada tv's tony Wilson's '24 hour party people ' for those of us of a certain age

    Off field update

    Getting this stadium right could hold the key to the future of west cumbrian sport and location is everything. Has to be built on lonsdale park and definitely no speedway

    Jam eaters takeover

    Town could do a lot worse than look at how well the reds in the community set up has worked in the last 12 months,with elite development age groups,work in schools and camps in holiday times accross west cumbria
  12. Cumbrian rugby league clubs need to start seriously worrying about the impact of thunders development work alongside the already established falcons ru scheme (who have been cherrypicking cumbrian sporting talent for a few years now and are reaping the benefits ).3 internationals in Harris,Graham and Wilson in the first team and quite a few others coming through the ranks.Clever use of photos of Mcavoy and Ritson on the flyer, lads who are well known in west cumbrian circles.
  13. To be honest I would have thought that the Bulls would have had an agreement with all the other clubs before they announced their intentions, they are probably guilty of assuming that everyone is going to agree to something which is for the Bulls benefit, they probably need to start ringing around the other club chairman pretty sharpish

    Cumbrian lakers

    I think this was the problem for the reds with the last stadium proposal,at the minute both clubs are in charge of everything within their grounds and enjoy the profits,what you don't want is a third party running it for their benefit and not the clubs
