  1. Testicle Attack. From here on known as a Testackle https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/aug/13/bradford-george-flanagan-banned-testicle-attack?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
  2. My understanding from a very recent conversation was that it was a soccer only 4G but the only thing I can find is reference to grass!!! May have to retract.
  3. No chance of playing at Moor Lane. The artificial pitch isn’t RL ready.
  4. The few hundred of them that exist, probably. I don’t think anywhere that I’ve suggested they should go to/re-name Manchester. Just responding to the OP. But if they did, no half measures. As for location, I think you’ll find Swinton as a location was always historically part of the Salfordshire “Hundred” of Lancashire, but for the last 45 years at least in the City of Salford. Point is that both clubs appear to be on a not so slow decline. Once the wonderful memories of the 50’s and 60’s have faded with the death of the last fans to have enjoyed watching them then, there’s not going to be many left to hang onto the memories. Keep the clubs as they are, absolutely fine. But you have to wonder what’s left in 10 years.
  5. Agree with that but It’s all relative. Talking hundreds rather than thousands. What won’t work is bringing together 3/4 together and upsetting all of them.
  6. If they’re going to do it, they need to go whole hog. Swinton is in Salford. That’s the history. If the future is Manchester, then it needs to be a clean slate. No point saying Swinton-Manchester or vice versa. Also, make a move to Etihad and invite the former directors of Rangers to get involved and re-establish their community work. It will upset some existing Swinton Fans but there’s a lot more potential for new ones going forward.
  7. Wigan were still at Central Park when this was a regular.
  8. He didn’t know the rent before he signed up? And it’s taken him how long to find out? Hhhhmmm.
  9. He’s threatening the RFL to reduce the costs he knew existed when he took the club over. Not sure “I’ll take us to Dewsbury if you don’t” is going to be the empty handed threat it appears to be. Average crowds to half overnight? He’ll soon find out how viable the club is then. Not sure the cost benefit is in favour of that solution.
  10. You don’t understand. It’s ‘bout building the brand. Give it away. You’ll see, it’ll all work out like the Stobard deal
  11. I realised that and looked it up. 1960 to 1981 apparently.
  12. Still at the back of a fag packet stage on a desk top in West Yorkshire.
