    Mergers

    Unless the merged team was called Oldham, played in a Red, White and Blue kit and was based in the OL area then I, like most us, would rather cut off parts of my anatomy with a rusty blade. I can't understand why the powers that be continually try to expand the game when they never get it right in the heartlands. Since Sky, SL have never really had any interest in the CH1 and League 1 clubs and will happily set us adrift and,when that happens I think a lot of clubs will fold. If that happens I will probably concentrate on watching my grandsons play at Mayfield and get a few Saddy Rangers games in. We have the best spectator sport in the World but the media are not interested, probably due to the fact that most outlets are run by Graduates who have been reared on Union. What the RL don't understand is that without the lower league teams fewer and fewer players will start playing the game and therefore less players will come through. This is what happened years ago in America with their Football and they had to completely re-think what they were doing. I can't change what plans the RL have and I'm sure they will differ tremendously from mine so I have to fall back on the old saying of ...."the one thing you can guarantee is that it will either rain or go dark before morning". That's my meandering thoughts and comments over!! Enjoy Sunday everyone

    Terrific news!! The grandsons will be so happy Welcome back Langers
  3. That's deffo a 50-50 call that went against us. In the build up you can see Anthony looking to time his run all along. The ref does not warn any of the runners going through and seems to have a second thought before awarding. Very tight call that would have been allowed any other time I feel. Thanks for the upload Dave. Be interesting what other feel now they've had the chance to view.
  4. It was a game between two really good teams and could have gone either way. Thought that Worky got the rub of the green and the ref's decisions more than us, especially at crucial times in the game. The offside decsion against Bowman at the end being one of them. Don't think the ref had given one offside from kicks all through the match up to that one. My Grandson and me went from feeling on top of the world to absolute devastation in a couple of seconds at the end. Would very much like another look at where Bowman was in relation to Adam Brook when he kicked - any chance of posting a clip off the video recording Dave? I know it doesn't make any difference to the result but I would like to know for sure. Back to the game in general which was a great specatacle for League 1 and I believe that we watched two of the top three teams yesterday, possibly the top two. Both these teams looked strong and well organised and not many teams will get a result against either of them this season. Lots of positives from yesterday with our lads and a lot to look forward to this season me thinks.
  5. Hi Dave Your work on these sort of things behind the scenes is very much appreciated.
  6. I certainly like the look of him on the youtube clips. Looks an attacking nippy half back in the Danny Yates/ Chris Atkin mold And a good kicker to boot!

    Is there any highlights on video at all?
  11. Another good signing this. Glad he remained loyal after we stuck with him.
  12. Hawkyard and Wilkinson along with Grimmer and Bent is the type of good old and young mix we should be looking at and if this the type of squad we are trying to build then I say bring it on. Must say that the signings so far have whet my appetite for the coming season with a good dollop of firm favourites from last season and proven players from other clubs. It looks like Nobby is also recruiting players who are capable of playing in a number of positions. Added to this, I too am intrigued at the club waiting till the awards night to "announce their latest capture" which tends to have us believe that it is something special. I do hope so.
  13. Hi YY, was talking about Grimmer when I said about playing Loose or Half Back - sorry for the confusion.
  14. Two very good re-signings in Spanner and Benty and hopefully more to come. Hope Grimmer is fit and injury free for us as he is a very experienced player. I said it a couple of years ago that he would do a great job at Loose and I still think so but, if we don't sing another good half back he will be just as good there and maybe even bring the best out of Chewy. Keep them coming Yeds
  15. Come on R34, spill the beans, who is it?
