  1. Yes, there's a small housing development on the site of the old ground, and it is called McLaren Fields. The Barley Mow pub is still there. I worked in Bramley for many years.
  2. Something like this, perhaps? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Retevis-Headphone-Earpiece-Compatible-QUANSHENG/dp/B014QGOA8Q/ref=sr_1_3?crid=HDSBS03WBOXU&keywords=walkie+talkie+mike+and+headphones&qid=1651497749&s=electronics&sprefix=walkie+talkie+mike+and+headphones%2Celectronics%2C56&sr=1-3
  3. Yes, the match officials are miked up. You can hear them if you watch the highlights.
  4. According to BSJ, Batley had to sign MR, as their current forwards are looking jaded...
  5. I'm surprised you took the bait, BSJ. Yes, Batley were disappointing in the first half. It's not unusual in these derby games. Their quality showed in the end, though. There was a big improvement in the second half, and I thought the final score a fair result. And yes, I'm glad we're another quality forward signed for the 'Dogs - competition for places, and giving injured players time to heal, and all that. As for Sykes, perhaps the ref put him in the bin for ten minutes peace and quiet?
  6. No, it's refereeing at its most consistent. Everybody hates Dewsbury, including the referees. Have you not realised that by now?
  7. If I remember correctly there were a handful of clubs that announced some sort of wheeze that you refer to some time ago. I think Dewsbury and Featherstone were two of them, Batley weren't. So you may be able to get into PO Road a bit cheaper with your Rams season ticket, but not Mount Pleasant. You can save a little on the admission price if you buy your ticket before midnight tonight, like I just did.
  8. Agreed, current form often seems to go by the wayside in these derby games. In theory, Dewsbury ought to expect a good tonking on Friday, but I'll be happy with a Batley win from a drop goal in the 79th minute!
  9. I think you should have time for a full recovery, Roger. Good luck!
  10. Linners said JC was worried about his hamstring, and so was brought off. Let's hope he's fit enough to score another hat trick on Sunday!
  11. I reckon you'll have had a better time in a warm play gym with the ankle-biters than watching your lot this afternoon. With a bit of luck you'll have come away with a slice of cake and a party bag... which is more than your fellow-sufferers who made the trip to York managed.
  12. I never knew John Lennon played for your lot...
  13. No, don't tell me, let me guess.... Thaler allowed the Bulls eight SL-style forward passes, and they scored off every one??
  14. Are you implying that Thaler won't let your lot get away with SL-style forward passes?
  15. We look forward to your match report, with photos and video highlights in due course! I got a note from my mum to say I couldn't go...
  16. Come off it, BSJ, you've not seen Batley hammered on Boxing Day since Coolie was knee-high to a grasshopper. You don't have to worry about Christmas now, knowing that it won't be spoiled by witnessing another defeat, so enjoy!
  17. No, PD. You used to be a ref... You're bound to have a sight problem. An inability to see all the knock-ons, forward passes, off-sides, obstructions, head-high tackles and the rest that we impartial fans can clearly see from 100 yards away.
  18. Thanks, Bi11. Complaints about the conduct of Dewsbury supporters (Dewsbury A vs Leeds A on Saturday 23rd January 1892) from the archives? They might have changed the name of the ground, and even moved it, but other traditions die hard...
  19. I think you two have overdosed on your paranoid pills...
