    If I recall the context of King speaking about "1000 season holders" was in regards to the impact of the Pandemic and uncertainty of fans attending in 2022, as well as unfounded speculation  about where SRD will play next season. Plus it was in October, barely out of the last season. Normally sale range from 2-3k. And as attendance numbers are not set by the club, unlike certain local big names, they do not register STH whether they attend or not.

    Don't let the truth get in the way.

    SRD are moving.

    🙂The next ground will be cheaper to rent and will increase match day revenue possibly up to a £1m.

    🙂It will be nearer the city centres.

    🙂Easier to get to by bus.

    😀Sure local parking is ######, but it's a 5min Uber from Prestwich or Manchester city centre.

    🙂Is the same land size as Cas, etc and can be expanded.

    🙂The club is well run and is debt free.

    🙂If it's Moor Lane, it will be on a historical old rugby ground.

    🙂It will be in an multicultural area, which would allow the game to continue its historical tradition of inclusiveness. Too much of some aspects of RL seems to dwell in monocultural Tory/Brexit voting small town silos .Others the very opposite. Make it always the opposite.

    🙂The RFL will find it hard to continue suppressing clubs like SRD, especially in regards to Academies. 

    🙂It will have a cracking atmosphere. 

    🙂It could be developed as a community hub for Kersal/Broughton/Prestwich.

    🙂The camera views of the glistening megapolis of Manchester and Salford will look brilliant 

    Modern, glamorous and progressive. Everything we want RL to be. 

    😀🥃🥃It's walking distance from our house.😂

    If RL can not make a fist of it in Manchester/Salford I think it's more than SRD to blame. If RL wants to stem the decline, the RFL needs to stop being a lobby for four or so big hugely indebted clubs and go for leather in places like Manchester/Salford.




    Are there actually any small RL towns that are Tory areas? 

    And several clubs already play in multicultural areas. Not sure why you think this is either new or will result in an increase in attendances.

    This assume you didn't notice the presence of Debbie Reynolds.

    I suggest you go back and watch it again.

    You can thank me later.

    I did indeed. But anything 'musical theatre' has certain implications I feel. (Iight hearted comment) 

    The women in that era though, are total class. And far more sexy than the girls today whipping their t!TS out at the drop of a hat.

    Janice Long`s Radio 1 weekday evening show was essential listening in the mid-80s.

    Along with the music and related guests, there was a magazine flavour with items on social topics and John Walters` music press review. All of which struck the perfect balance between Daytime and Peel. 

    Off the top of my head, these are 10 records that in my mind are forever associated with the Janice Long Show -

    Killing Joke - Love like blood

    The Cult - She sells sanctuary

    The Cure - In between days

    Husker Du - Sorry somehow

    The Smiths - Panic

    It`s Immaterial - Driving away from home

    P.I.L. - Home

    Weather Prophets - Almost prayed

    Siouxsie and the Banshees - Candyman

    Julian Cope - World shut your mouth

    Sad news.

    Wouldn't disagree with that. I used to listen to her show a lot with my girlfriend at the time, 8-10 before John Peel IIRC.

    A couple more tracks I always associate with her show were Bronski Beat 'Smalltown Boy' which obviously became a big hit but she played it well before that. Another is more obscure but is Red Guitars 'Good Technology' who I *think* were from Hull.

    Certainly did and more to come today.

    Bring it on.

    Same here, an absolute quality day. It will be my eldest lads last one before he becomes a dad himself, so it's been a sort of landmark. Drinking with kids and arguing about snowflakes etc (but all in good fun) 

    Pub this afternoon and see what develops there. 😬

    It's a useful substitute for me......I still get the cold bottle, most of the taste and the pub/social experience ......I genuinely don't think I'd have done it without them

    I've actually bought some 1% cider from Waitrose recently....even better really as you get a bit of 'body' in the taste and a very slight buzz after 3 quick ones......

    I can understand that. But as it's practically the same price as regular beer, I'll just stick to soft drinks. 

    There is even 0.0% Guinness..... heresy.

    I am on 60th day of no more than 3 drinks when I drink....and that's once or twice a week (Sat/Sun usually)....as a previous massive weekend only binge drinker this has been huge for me

    Very proud of myself and look/feel better

    The non alcohol beer is a God send for me

    Stick at it Johnny!

    Congratulations on the not drinking. But I never see the point in non alcoholic beer. I just don't drink or have tea or something.

    decided to quit drinking at the end of nov - done 25 days straight now- tonight with friends in the pub was a big test but 4 bottles of 0% lager and an early exit home all's ok- tomorrow with the family all day will be an even bigger test - cos of my lifestyle with gigs and a big circle of friends etc everything seems to revolve around alcohol week in week out  - pubs- clubs- parties - round each others houses-etc  so decided to jump straight in at the deep end and use xmas to do this 

    I once stopped drinking. Worst 8 hours of my life.
