  1. Staying on holiday and not reporting back on time
  2. Seems he was a good captain in 2016... until he let himself down but that’s life we move he’ll have a lot to offer...
  3. Must be a thing about former SL hookers & batley a minimal game time
  4. Just because there’s football season happening doesn’t mean crowds at our level would be allowed in if a second spike came
  5. who knows what’s going off with sponsorship or fans returning to the grounds the game is been ran by the powers of the rfl Fans may stay away from grounds if they went back to franchises in the future (fev fans been one of them in numbers) no offence to our club yes it’s ran on a shoe string budget but I’m sure our sponsors came away due to financial problems and so on we’d struggle
  6. Because Clubs don’t know what’s happening with the TV deal post 2021?
  7. Ex York forward from the batley area has passed away with illness played with York in the early 80s
  8. Players could go back in September/October for pre season training before a set of fixtures in November before 2nd of December the start of the season We could finally have a meaningful Boxing Day game for the first time since December 2000 which was at the rams as the following year at batley was called off 20 minutes before kick off
  9. I can’t see it restarting as they’ll be no promotion nor relegation after yesterday’s statement about 2021 and magic weekend... void this year and restart 2021 in December
  10. Stevie Walker & Andy Wray was 16... we hadn’t signed Davy Kimmel yet
  11. It’s mental 3 months later Roy Powell was dead maybe things to come? iro could tackle and break a tackle , Roger Simpson was class
  12. As Craig Lingard said on radio Leeds he can’t see season starting as 95% of the players have jobs outside the game that are still working and employers won’t want players making contact with other people outside work & household the game can’t also be played behind closed doors as they can’t afford the wages etc
  13. The two subs were hill & North the player/coach was Steve molloy who left to join Oldham before Easter that year and the game was played at a football ground at hurst cross the game at Blackpool was 2004
  14. Batley beat Oldham 26 - 34 the batley team that’s was... 1. CL 2. PG 3. RS 4. DM 5. LW 6. RH 7. GT 8. JN 9. KL 10. AS 11. DR 12. WC 13 AL 14. MC 15.PH 16. SH 17. CN also where was the game played and which former bulldog was the Oldham coach?
  15. Sheffield away in the July that year before Sheffield moaned about us & I think it was Doncaster
  16. Ben black was playing injured for 90% of that season, but he stood up & was counted for us that day
  17. Easy, we hardly made any errors too
  18. Best performance in the last 15 years there...
  19. Clubs don't have to play Boxing Day or New Year's Day it was an example but for me batley vs dewsbury over Xmas and a game vs York or fev would bring the fans in plus without SL would be a good crowds doubt Sheffield would cope with a crowd more than a 1000
  20. Football seem to work and I'm sure local derbies you wouldn't need local transport It worked from 2000/2002 season so why wouldn't it work now? I can't remember the winter been bad this time round February and March was worse with the weather
  21. Right I've said this a few times now cancel 2020 season... start pre season October 1st training wise: play the pre season games from November 7th, December 6th the season starts with games played Boxing Day New Year's Day & Easter (crowds would turn up season finishes 4th of July with a grand final been 31st of July or 7th of August
  22. Very I still can't believe he carried on with a break in his back at Bradford later on in the season a true warrior
  23. Seems to me he's scared again... if he's spent too much money for no return due to human nature then it's not the RFL/Clubs fault there not gonna cripple themselves because Derek has spent millions again
