    2019 Championship Season Preview

    I just want us away from the bottom end of the table. A comfortable last few games would be nice.

    I think it's a great looking shirt. Very professional. We aren't the only club to dispense with tradition for a season. I seem to remember St George losing their red V and going for red/white stripes. Didn't do them any harm. Good to see some other stuff in the shop too.

    Don't want to give my cash to an eBay seller for a generic blue and white scarf when the club needs the money instead...

    Is there likely to be other additional merchandise besides replica kits ? Just the basic stuff like hats and scarves ? It's the sort of thing that people buy as Xmas gifts and could be a missed opportunity to generate money. Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere. I know Twitter seems to be the main comms these days but I really don't like it.

    Swinton squad news for 2019 season

    Was having a nosey at some of the other teams squads. It's going to be another tough year to get points on the board. Hopefully we do ourselves justice. York look to be spending a shedload of cash. They have 24 players signed up and allegedly more to come. Exacty how many squad players can you have? Does anyone on here know? We've done pretty well too signing up players. Is it possible to lose a signed on player to another club without a transfer fee? Just a thought as Leigh now look to be getting their act together ...

    So how do all your hornets fans feel about the squad? Shaping up nicely? What else do you need on the playing front? You had quite a bit of exposure in the national press re Scott Moore. Full page in the Mirror a couple of days ago. Might bring a few extra people along to watch and journo's.

    Mr Wild, can you kindly back off commenting on my posts on here and other sites. A shop that just sells season tickets isn't much of a shop I'm afraid. Sorry for not getting 'on message' BTW you and the board are doing a good job. Keep it up but learn to take a bit of criticism. It comes with the territory.

    As I said on another site there is only a small player pool in this part of the world. Players will inevitably move between Rochdale, Swinton & Oldham. And now Leigh are also fishing in that same pool..

    Thanks for supporting my right to say what I think. I think Mr Wild has got his knickers in a twist over a pretty innocuous statement. Unfortunately dissent from the party line is frowned on at the Lions. Everything is rosy all the time... I am interested in spending at all Rugby clubs not least my own. BTW I enjoy the Rochdale forum - hope you don't mind me posting occasionally folks.

    I said we at Swinton haven't got a pot to pee in. I stand by that though it looks like we've got some decent sponsors on board. I am however worried we are spending money we may not have.

    Unfortunately, because of proximity then players will move between Rochdale, Swinton and Oldham a lot. There is only a small pot of players in this part of the north that we all can afford to sign ...
