  1. there are a number of clues hidden in the picture for you to follow, may not show on a mobile but does on my laptop
  2. I'm led to believe that John Kear (our most successful coach in recent years)was asked about the appointment and said he thought linners was ready, the club then took a bit of pressure off linners by appointing our second most successful coach in recent years to support and advise him. Not sure what more they can do.
  3. Surely if you inflate attendances you would have to show increased gate receipts in your accounts and pay tax on thoae gate recipts this negating the increase in funding?
  4. If the club had announced that Karl Harrison was the new head coach with linners as his assistant, would you have been happier? Because I can't see much difference, I'm sure linners isn't too pompous to take advice from someone with Karl's experience, it's not dissimilar to the Kear, Chester role at Wakefield. Anyway onwards n upwards after a very difficult season on and off the pitch.
  5. If we get a halfback who can time a pass and doesn't mind getting whacked then Scotty should score a few from the telegraphed but hard to prevent linners wrap around move.
  6. Good appointments, a mix of youth and experience and both know the club inside out. I don't think we could have done better for knowledge of the part time game. Roll on the rebuilding and next season, well done to the board for moving quickly so that recruitment can start.
  7. Don't waste your time trying to tease your limp luke warm sausage out at the mount . The food is the best around and reasonably priced. Pies supplied by the local farmshop. Homemade specials such as lasagne, chilli, corned beef hash, home made steak pie. And our own bulldog bitter and tommo gold lager served in our reusable (£1deposit) eco friendly pint glasses.
  8. Really enjoyed that game, if we get entertained like that every week I'll be happy, regardless of where we finish, but I feel we could be in for a good un
  9. Yep I agree, I don't usually buy a program but this is a good read and releasing it the day before a game helps to build the anticipation for the following day, the club have made massive strides with their online presence over that last few months, all really positive stuff
  10. I have to agree York played some nice open footy and their forwards were very mobile, they will be in the mix 5-8 this time along with us, my point being we still won against a good side, whilst our attack didn't click, that bodes well for the season, at 18nill down we looked out of it but dug in and got the win. The lads did well and I think we have reason to be positive for the year ahead,
  11. Bodes well for the season then if we can beat teams who are far better than us. Hope the club have the open top bus company and town hall on speed dial as there may be a cup coming to town. 2016 was one of the most boring seasons I've watched rugbywise, we just ground teams down but I thoroughly enjoyed the 8's at headingley. I'm confident for the season ahead and I'm stumped if I can find something to be negative about after 3 games.
  12. We won again in 1901, so make that 117 years, it's practically yesterday?
  13. From what I've heard there's a lot of money riding on your website and social media output, Batley have upped theirs massively this last few weeks but im told the money is paid on overall numbers and not improvement. Ie if widnes have 10000 followers on Twitter and Dews have 1000 widnes get the most funding, the next season Dews grow up to 2000 followers and widnes drop to 8000, widnes still get the most funding, not sure if it's just rumours but surely funding should be on %increase to reward those trying to make a difference and not just sitting on their laurels.
  14. Your all complaining online so must have internet access, you can order advance tickets for £18/£13 that's £1 more than it cost to sit at the Rams last season. For that you get to relieve the cabin fever with 2hrs of fresh air, support your new players vocally and your club financially, have access to some competativley priced home cooked food and beer. If you Rams fans turn your jeans up and flash your lovely new Mr Grumpy socks I'll be able to identify you and I'll buy you a pint. Our best bet is to reduce prices for our 5th game of the season when everyone is fed up, no point doing it now when fans will turn up out of tradition or we both lose out.
