  1. Good interview with John Flatman on Radio York this evening about why the Knights have pulled out of the challenge cup and what the Knights are doing for next season and is talking up what kind of squad we are going to have in place for next season can't wait
  2. See Toronto have pulled out of Super League for the rest of the season,i presume that no club from Super League will be relegated this season and if the Championship starts up again will promotion still be on the table?
  3. Would be the sensible solution as long as promotion and relegation for all three divisions is preserved for the following season
  4. Are there waiting on super league clubs deciding on relegation before championship and league 1continue the season or is it down to finances
  5. See Championship and League 1 are meeting today about where we go from here,see Leigh,Featherstone and Newcastle are keen to restart having spent big money on squads but how are there going to pay the players with no income coming through the turnstiles.
  6. Can't see how we can finish the season with no income from supporters and i presume a lot of players have commitments at the end of the season,would gladly give my season ticket money this season up if it went towards the players pot for next season
  7. Nobody knows how long we are going to be in this situation for and the players are going to probably have to have another pre season,so is the best option to cancel the league season in all 3 divisions and have a round robin competition for each division with the finals of all 3divisions been played at Old Trafford on Grand Final night.obviously this would mean that they would be no promotion or relegation this season and we start again next February
  8. I'd presume that the players will get paid for turning up for training to cover petrol costs and any other costs there might incur and those players who play on a Sunday will get a match fee with a bonus if the Knights win.
  9. No club can survive if you play behind closed doors as the players and staff will still need to be paid,i think the RFL should suspend the league for at least 4weeks and look at it again to see what the situation is in the country.
  10. Apart from the 15minutes in the first half we were the better side and probably deserved better,but what has happened to our goal line defence this season compared to the last 2seasons you could be pretty confident that what ever teams through at us on our line we would keep teams out and we need more pace in the side as i don't think we have anybody who could go the length of the field apart from Marsh
  11. Would start sharp on the wing,bass at full back and marsh at stand off and the rest of the team picks itself

    D r

    If i was Fordy i i would be on the phone to Castleford asking who is available this weekend as at the moment certain players aren't performing and should not be in the team
  13. I think the problem we have is for the last couple of year's we have relied on a team ethic that got us through games we could have lost,but that seems to be missing so far this season,so have the new signings not brought in to Fordy's ideas about a team that works for each other or there just not good enough,but Fordy wanted more experience in his team and i presume that we have paid top money for these players and maybe we are light in a couple of positions as we don't have the financial resources to go with a bigger squad,so the team picks itself.Hope Fordy can turn it around quickly or it's going to be a long hard season.

    New stadium

    I could understand not wanting football supporters,but on the whole rugby fan's mix well together .
  15. Don't think you can just blame the loss of Ben Cockayne as we played without him at the back end of the season,but what the team lacks is pace especially in the back three(forwards),maybe putting Liam into the 2nd row will offer the team something different to what we have now,but we are only 2 games into the season and have probably played 2 of best teams in the division.

    New stadium

    Passed by the stadium yesterday and that all the work is been done is behind the side stand on the left,don't if that is holding everything up?

    New stadium

    What a shambles this has turned into,we have already been made to play our first game at BC on Sunday and sounds like the Stadium is not going be ready till April and the Knights can't play at the new Stadium till York City have played there first game at the Stadium,meaning we might have to stay at BC till next season (according to Radio York).How can the Knights plan for this season if nobody knows when the stadium will open,and how much money are the Knights losing by playing at BC?
  19. Do you have to go to the office to pick your season ticket up or can you pick it up on Sunday before the game?
  20. Apart from Marsh i don't think we have many more options at Half Back.
  21. I certainly wouldn't call it a shambles,we still look strong defensively,but we to score more points which Fordy has acknowledged in the press and the Championship is as is going to be tougher than last season as many teams know what the Knights are about now.
  22. Certainly put his heart and his money in to the club when Chairman and also a great bloke

    New stadium

    Wouldn't it make sense to run buses from Exhibition Square to the new Stadium as most bus routes go through that part of town,and a lot of Knights supporters use the Bootham Tavern ?before and after games?
  24. Brought my home shirt a week last Friday from the shop and Neil said that it had been well worth opening the shop in coppergate.
  25. I presume you can pay with a card?
