    Official Club Statement.

    They obviously can't have either an embargo or any money worries anymore, they are apparently scouring the country for amateur players to step up along with a host of Town and Barrow players according to their fans in the know.

    Swinton v Town final, final, final

    But that is the whole point of why the RFL has to carry the responsibility. Where in the rules does it state that any ad hoc games dreamed up during the season that require dispensation because players had booked holidays thinking the season was over meaning injured players have to play need both teams to ask for dispensation? Why couldn't the RFL put it out to all the clubs to vote if that was what happened with Leigh and Fev? By making the decision themselves means they alone are culpable. Or does that not fit your agenda of trying to wind us up?

    Very proud of the players and the club, they gave it a real go and thats all we can ask of them. I'm already looking forward to next season, the clowns at the RFL have only delayed our party by 12 months UTT!!!!

    Swinton v Town final, final, final

    Good luck today lads. The odds and the RFL are against us but them, get stuck into them from the start, and see how they handle it. I'm sure Leon will be asking them to put the ball into touch as often as possible to slow the game down and get a breather. We will be a match for them as long as the lads have belief they can do it. I'd love to stick it up the RFL amd see the promotion victory song on Twitter, but it's more important none of our players get injured because of the situation they have been put in by the clowns in charge. Come on boys one last effort UTT!

    Official Club Statement.

    Absolutely disgusting behaviour by the governing body. I knew what they thought of us ever since the PSG episode, but I have to say I am shocked by what they have brewed up this time. Well Leon is a pundit on talksport tonight for the Grand final. Let's hope he gets the chance to share this with the wider public. I hope those going can formulate some sort of protest at the game tomorrow as this stinks.

    Has the squad been released? All very quiet from Town, no call to arms or anything, have they given up? I expected an angry reaction to the RFL decision but not a jot. Have they just rolled over?

    Swinton v Town final, final, final

    Its a diabolical situation that the Idiots at the RFL have forced on the lads. Is there any way they can be held accountable whether it be morally or legally? I'm sure if enough fuss was made by a media outlet they would be forced to defend the decision even if it just to save embarrassment. I know it's too late for negative publicity to change the decision but I'd love to see them squirm over the absolute farce this has turned into. Maybe if a Talksport or similar were to pick up on the adversity that Town has to overcome because of the incompetence of the fools running the game they make at least force them to comment on it. Any of the lads that have changed plans or are playing busted have my ultimate respect, an awesome and well appreciated gesture from all us Townies. I'd love it if the lads can pull it out of the bag and stuff it up them all. UTT!!!

    Not very subtle bit of stirring Marranfan.

    So what are you whining for when somebody does?
  12. The Voodooguru

    Squad for Bradford

    Actually if you google "Pollett 2006" he studied the home advantage theory in football which included travel as a variable. You can look at summaries as it's a lengthy paper but the two I read contradicted each other. So for arguments sake lets just say you will be right. Forum police eh? Thats usually a stock response for somebody in a corner, but if you air your opinion on a forum surely you are also prepared to be challenged on it, or is that not how it works?? But good to see you are pleased with the season. I'd hate to see what would have happened if it had been poor.
  13. The Voodooguru

    Squad for Bradford

    No I can't prove otherwise but I'm not the one trying to disprove the travelling theory. You are. Sorry I can't remember mentioning or referring to the Doncaster game either so I've still no idea what you are going on about. Your last paragraph proves it is semantics as its not really about the travelling it's about your opinion of Leon. With every compliment you give Leon you back it up with a negative. Are you suggesting as he has apparently the 3rd biggest budget in the league ( you cannot possibly know that and are using a guess yet again to prove your point but let me guess you have documents you could show me - right?) he should have finished 3rd? You could level the "take defeat gracefully" at every coach when they get beat as they are often interviewed right after the game when there is still emotion involved and the burn of getting beat is still fresh. In all honesty I thought Leon was very magnanimous and admitted that Bradford were the better team and deserved to win. .

    Squad for Bradford

    We might have won by 20 the first time if we had stayed over, can you prove otherwise? Remind me where I mentioned anything about experienced fresher players for the 2nd game and their impact on the result GT? So why if it really doesn't make a blind bit of difference in your expert opinion as you are obviously the only one that have travelled to play rugby have clubs stayed overnight in Cumbria in numerous sports and why have coaches mentioned travelling as a factor? Whether the travelling is a factor or not is really semantics isn't it? What is your real motivation is for having a go at our coach who still may promote us in his first season in charge as you have lost me pal?

    Squad for Bradford

    Oh the irony of your first sentence and the rest of the twaddle that followed. I can't believe you are having a pop at Leon, So he gets upset at getting beat, sometimes doesn't say the bog standard manager speak, and is hard on the players. So f***ing what? He is a born winner and expects the highest standards. Every manager wants the best of the best and will plead for everything they can squeeze from the BOD. It's up to the BOD to say yes or no. If travelling the night before wasn't a factor nobody would do it as it would be just a waste of money. When we beat the Bulls Kear used every excuse in the book, Leon was honest enough to admit we were beat by a better team on the day but used some contributing factors as to why he thought we got beat. I think they were all perfectly reasonable. Some folk just like twining.

    Paul Rowley beaten by Jarrod Sammut, takes the sting out of today a bit. I think we should get Jarrod on loan for next week.........

    New Stadium for Workington

    Mark you are starting to lose me now, earlier you were saying your financially sound idea was to piecemeal re-build a stadium, now you are conceding it may cost more. The truth is nobody knows if your alternative idea is cheaper or not as you have no idea yourself do you? Sorry if i offended you with the "making noise" comment but obviously you can't do anything about this ball rolling in your capacity of opposition scrutiny as you would have already done it , so what can you do if such a travesty is happening in ABC? If we had some concrete figures either way we could make and informed choice, but ABC seem to have hatched a plan and you are decrying it based on assumptions. You may be bang on with what you say but it smells to me like a Labour v Tories squabble as you can't offer a balanced argument based on facts. There must be a shared stadium that is working for both teams yet because it doesn't fit the argument we don't hear about it. Keith T researched some figures for new stadia a while back and it all seemed like it was not out of reach, now it is going to add massively to everyone's council tax. I don't know what to believe....

    New Stadium for Workington

    Mark without being disrespectful at the top of your original comment you show your hand. In that it is your role to scrutinise decision made by the council, and as the opposition to make as much noise as possible. Let's face it this is political and you are scaremongering with worst case scenario stuff. I'm not passing comment on the current ABC lending figures or any comment on how good or bad a job they are doing because this is a rugby forum. If neither stadia was used I assume the pieces of land could be sold for development, would this not contribute towards the new venture? You have used researched examples of where these ventures have not worked. Did you find any examples of where it did work to use as a blueprint? If not why not? You offer little solution to the problem which may see our two semi pro sporting clubs go the the wall because of the facilities they have to try to maintain other than to piecemeal repair one stadium with no costs whatsoever. How do you know this won't cost more? I'm sure when the new stand was recently built at Liverpool's Anfield stadium they said it cost more than if was not part of the existing set up. Why would this be different? Have seen what difference the 500k made to DP from its recent upgrade? You are polishing a ###### to be honest. If you come up with a viable alternative surely the club's and the council under pressure from it's public have no option but to pick the better option. As a tax payer it is in my interest that vast sums of our money is not squandered, yet as I'm sure as I do you want our kids to grow up in an area with excellent sporting facilities so rhey can all grow up as happy healthy kids, which unfortunately does cost money to provide. The council has an obligation to its tax paying public to provide this in my opinion. This area has been called one of the most obese areas of the country and key to kids growing up playing sports instead of fortnite is having something to emulate and aim for. The Reds and Town are inegral to this as playing for your home town club is attainable. Mark, you have to realise this situation needs addressed so instead of shouting "that wont work!" as loud as you can because it's politically your role to do, go the extra mile and come up with a viable solution with costs and how it will be funded. You may even get some votes out of it if that's what is motivating you in this argument.

    Doncaster (A) Semi Final

    Think our forwards won us it today, they were outstanding. The only way for the lads to make sure the holiday situation doesn't rear its head is to go out and win it on Sunday, they have done it before and know they can do it again.

    Shaun Lunt

    Best wishes to Lunty for a quick recovery, almost carried our team himself in the time he played for us. I'd love to see him back in the blue & white again before he retires.

    SKOLARS REACTION

    Like has been said it's done. Jonty has moved to Haven so we will see how many players are loyal to him by the start of next season won't we?
