Wakey in bother again......

3. The "below average" Toulouse performance was not a reflection of the playing ability of the team, but rather the poor coaching ability of Gilles Dumas. But their Championship performance is irrelevant anyway. Once they join SL, as you well know, both quality of player ranks and of coach will be bumped up into another stratosphere.

:lol: you really are a comic genius.

Wakefield wouldn't receive anything. If they are wound up they cease to exist. A new Company would be formed probably "buying" the assets from the liquidator.

Many petitions are presented but dismissed or withdrawn. It is not a guarantee an Order will be made. Clock ticking for Wakefield to amke a deal with Revenue and Customs and stick to it.

Sad to see any company going bust.

1. Catalans

2. On what basis do you assert that Toulouse has no finances in place?

Just a bit tongue in cheek. I was very dissapointed that a Catalans who could travel and compete and who could go far in cup and league have now gone so far backwards. It's been a major blow to SL for me.

As for Toulouse I know you feel when they get in SL they will then get the local sponsorships and investment, I also know you feel there are good players in France who won't play for Toulouse at the moment. But if it is just a matter of putting them in and it will all kick start then fine - but they didn't go in last time and are behind Widnes this time so what's the prob????

That's a thought..........

What assets would the "New Company" buy??

Belle Vue has been sold, so are we talking about posts, tackle bags, portakabin, balls, and fax and photocopier from the office??

Oh! That's the solution - if they have flogged Belle Vue they can pay the taxman out of the proceeds surely?

Very intriguing in a way as to what path th RFL will take with the franchises. Could we see 3 down and one in?

Or the RFL could throw them a lifeline

Are you sure? What contracts do Wakefield have that are an asset? How is "goodwill" worth anything, and how is the name worth anything???

If Trinity go under another Trinity will start up and get the name and fans for nothing.

The only real asset the club has or had was the ground. Having lived through the sale of Parkside and studied exactly what went on, it raises questions?

The same RFL that would probably like only one club in the area in SL. Maybe all roads will lead to Glasshoughton after all.

One more nail in Wakeys franchise renewal bid. Widnes replace them. Happy days :D

Fair point. Presumably if HMRC put a club into liquidation they might well get less money than if they continued to take the amount owed by instalments.

I agree, and think Wigan, Wire & Saints will be rubbing their hands at the thought of 2,000 travelling Widnes fans rather than a couple of dozen from London or France.

Agreed & to be fair Fev,Fax,Leigh & Barrow would take big numbers away with them also, compared to French or London teams.

Out of curiosity ( not a dig at ) how many do Saders take on average ?

1000 tickets for us tomorrow

How many would Barrow bring, 150?

Contracts become null and void if a club drops from SL. After London were allowed to write off over

When was the previous occasion a winding order was issued against the Wakefield club?

It's incredible to think that Murdoch money was hailed by the likes of Lindsay, and others who supported the acceptance of the deal, as being the saviour of the game in this country.

How many clubs are actually self sufficient and not reliant on directors putting money in? I would guess every SL clubs relies on director support to varying degress, and that the numbers the numbers differ very little from pre SL days.

For the first ever super league playoff game?

Bit of an arrogant assumption to suggest they'd only take 150 for that don't you think? Don't start looking down on teams just because you've made the playoffs.

Compared to some of the ###### you lot come out with, i thought it was a pretty good educated guess

You missed "again" off at the end of play offs

This post made no sense whatsoever. Try again.

Please note: What some of "our lot" (whomever you mean) come out with is completely irrelevant in terms of how accurate your guess is.

Calm down and like I've said, stop being arrogant. Jesus. This game used to have a good spirit about it. Wakefield might be potential rivals down the road - but I wouldn't wish them financial problems, as is the nature of our game compared with some others. You seem to be forgetting this.

Dont recall mentioning wakey

I havent wished Wakey anything, they'll sort it out no doubt

A poster predicts widnes will take 2000 to some away games, seems about as sensible as my 150 barrow guess.

As for me being arrogant and pent up, ok :lol:

Well considering we took approx 1800 to Cas & 2000 ish to Saints in this seasons CC then id guesstimate a fair few more than 150. :lol:

You lot taking a 1000 is very good for your club and for the game in general, good effort.

You're showing your ignorance here. We regularly took 2000 to super league games. We're the best supported club in this division, and have a very healthy away following. If we had an away following of 1000 in a super league play offs, people would be asking what went wrong.

You may not have mentioned wakey, but I used that as an example of the rugby league family atmosphere, or what used to be of it. Now we have too many fans who seem to be nasty all the time.

You know absolutely nothing. You've proved it. The precedents have been set in almost all of what you've said, you've been proved wrong by history.
