  1. It will be good for a new name on the trophy ,but our sport may be small at the side of the FA PREMIERSHIP ,but there is also a very small number of clubs guaranteed to win their league
  2. We all want to see our own team win ,but if a team who has not won SL in its present format gets to the GF I.E Wire against a team who has won it other than our own team I would root for Wire for good of the sport
  3. Granted and you are not the same team who were Chokers and it's a different period of time , but you are still hurting from it .
  4. Most teams have an anthem now I think Wires could be " In the year 2525" with a question mark on the date
  5. Back to normal again everyone slept since last nights game . A bit below the belt resorting to slagging off all of Leeds . Ok to denigrate Primley park Alwoodley , Chapel Allerton, Bramhope ,Adel , there is nothing wrong with places like Gipton , Seacroft and Halton Moor and Broadleas etc
  6. Tony Smith has done a good job once again ,this time at KR . However home advantage should see Wire through to make them 3rd favourites to win the Grand Final
  7. Yes I've thought that looking at some of those NRL games
  8. Just thinking when we had those hidings from you I used to reminisce not the 0-19 ,but long before that 25-4 1968 there weren't too many from a Leeds perspective. I wasnt being facetious
  9. Now its Wigan V Leeds and when Leeds beat Wigan its very memorable because it doesn't happen very often even when Leeds are doing well. Wigan are going through a poor patch and some are predicting they really are in a downward spiral , Leeds could be the fixture when the rumours of Wigans demise are greatly exaggerated, but only for now . Normal service will be resumed tomorrow. They will beat Leeds ,but they're still in demise
  10. I expect the club and players from that era will make a big boost to the fund
  11. It's hard to visualize where it will be situated but I hope it will be easy access for the public to view . I was thinking just at the area near the old slope where they used to enter from the old dressing rooms
  12. Leeds always had a sizable Jewish population going back to the days of Leeds Parish Church the bulk of that clubs Support was from the Jewish Leylands area and the Irish Bank area that was one of the reasons the Angican vicar disbanded the club . The Jewish community has always been involved in the sporting institutions of the city and when Leeds RL signed the great Wilf Rosenberg they were even more attracted to Headingley
  13. I believe Leicester has a large Asian population, but theyve got a relatively successful football team with quite a wealthy owner
  14. I dont think it's a case of more supporters . Leeds for instance up until the Revie era was a RL city with 3 clubs even though the football club averaged more support that was because West riding was a RL area ( northern union) , but this is a debate for another thread . Bradford Northern Bulls even though they have had crashes throughout their history theyve also had periods of success . Odsal is totally inadequate it's now awful, but Bradford have never owned it therefore they couldn't sell it and move to a more suitable site . I believe the RFL are leaseholders, I dont know what they can do with it as Leaseholders, but are they just going to leave it like that
  15. A city the size of Bradford should be challenging in SL and due respect to Bradford City SFC it is a RL city ,but the club has gone bust twice in my living memory while clubs considered smaller than Bradford kept it king over .in 1964 they went bust through lack of support because of a very poor team and the more recent time the Harris issue which resulted in a vendetta with Leeds .they still have a reasonable support base so there is room for optimism there . They have never owned Odsal
  16. Different culture! How would RL fans take it if the owners of the Trophy winners started to collect the trophy before the players touched it ?
