  1. Would it be in bad taste to remind everyone of a famous line from one of the Bond films, "No, Mr Bond. I expect you to die." Yes, it probably would. The obits I've seen so far all seem to ignore the film "Marnie". Sean Connery and Tippi Hedren. I liked it, but it was controversial.
  2. Who will win this one? Let me think. Okay, I've thought and my answer is I neither know nor care. I just hope nobody picks up a serious injury and nobody goes down with coronavirus. Bring on the play-offs, if we must, and then have a break before restarting next year. Merry Christmas, everyone.
  3. All of which serve to identify Salford as your target, as I said.
  4. So why did you refer to Salford in every paragraph? "A club that has been back in Super League for eleven years, earning £10 million" "They closed their academy in 2016." "They are now ... playing catch up." I understand your points apply to other clubs. Can you understand how I think you just want to bash Salford?
  5. I get what you are saying and perhaps you are correct, but he has been having a go at Salford for a couple of days now. Maybe I should just bite my tongue?
  6. I did. Your focus was all about Salford and our shortcomings.
  7. If this is "not having a go at Salford", I'd hate to see what actually having a go at us is. You need to let it go.
  8. Well, I tried to be conciliatory, but you are still bitter. Tough. Salford are not complaining. As you failed to read my post, I'll repeat it. We are still putting teams on the pitch, we are still competing, we are not, as a club, complaining. The only complaints are from a few fans. I just don't get why you are so bitter. As I said, enjoy the rest of the season. However, I won't be wishing you well in the play offs.
  9. A rather jaundiced view. Did you lose last night? It wasn't just because we got to the CC final. You seem to have forgotten that we had to miss a few games after Hull's Covid problems. We played Hull, they revealed positive tests, we had to cancel games (not blaming Hull - sh*t happens) and we are playing catch up for that as well as getting to the CC final. The club is not crying "unfair", it is putting teams on the park and competing. Did I mention that we won last night? The OP probably should have avoided mentioning her club, but she used an example she was well acquainted with, and she does make a valid point about player welfare generally. The Saints fans on here (including you,HW, iirc) were very generous in their praise of Salford for getting to Wembley, so I'm puzzled by the reactions to this thread. Still, Saints are still, I believe, top and you have a great group of youngsters coming through who will have learnt a lot from last night. Enjoy the rest of the season.
  10. Gutted! I'd kick the cat, but it died a year ago. Another coat of paint on the posts and that first conversion would have bounced clear. "Sack the lazy painters," I say.
  11. Getting nervous now. Time for the boys to go to work. Good luck, Salford! Bring the cup home with you.
  12. I like what you did there. Does it come with barges?
  13. Forgive me for this, there is no offence intended and I certainly don't want to belittle Huddersfield but, I don't really care what happens. There is no relegation this year and we are in the Challenge Cup Final in ten days. Fill yer boots Huddersfield, 'cos I don't care. PS. I just hope we avoid any injuries.
  14. I'd like to echo JD's earlier comment, thanking OF for 'standing in' for him. A sterling effort. I enjoyed following the game on here last night. Thanks, mate.
  15. When people were asking how Hastings would do at Wigan, I did say that it would depend on the Wigan coaching staff. If they let him play his own game, he would be brilliant, but if they tie him in to the Wigan structures, he would struggle. Those Wigan structures have been great for the team over the last few decades, but they don't suit the cavalier that is Jackson Hastings.
  16. As a pedant (and please don't take offence), there are 2 semi-finals each year and they can't be in both, so the most they could have been in is 7 out of the last 14. But I know what you mean. I hope Salford win, but I think Wire are due a win against us as we've won the last 4 or 5. May the winning streak continue!
  17. If it's free, then it probably is worth it. There could be other reasons to have a smart meter, but just having a smart meter will not save you money. You have to reduce your electricity consumption in order to pay less. If, for example, the smart meter allowed you to use more environmentally friendly electricity*, such as wind generated, and the environment is important to you, then get one and enjoy your environmentally friendly electricity. * I don't think it can.
  18. ONE slice! That makes you practically a vegan in my book.
  19. Hmmm! You predicted a win for us last week, iirc, and we got thumped by Leeds. Do I detect a new strategy from Chronicler? Fwiw, I hope you are right.
  20. Of course there's room for optimism in West Hull! A quick glance across the river should lift your spirits.
  21. Your chemist will be able to provide a cream for your itch. I think Salford will win in a close contest.
