  1. Bit late to this conversation, but I'm just working on the Liverpool Stanley shareholder lists and David James was listed as a junior clerk. If you ever look to sell that or anything else, please contact Rugby League Cares and offer it to the RFL Archive.
  2. Just met with Radford at the KC on the Walk Against Cancer for the Steve Prescott Foundation. He's in good spirits.
  3. Radford is unproven. There is a huge difference between being head coach at East Hull and being head coach at Hull FC. He should go and ply his trade at Championship level first and gain experience. He is also part of the institutionalisation that has happened at Hull FC. The culture of the club needs breaking if it is to move forward. Bringing in an ex player who is mates with the boys is not the way to bring about positive change.
  4. For every person happy with this decision there are 20 who are not happy, if twitter and comments on the official FC Facebook page are anything to go by. Pearson really isn't doing himself any favours on the PR front.
  5. That's it, he's gone: http://mobile.hullfc.com/News/Article/30882. He was an improvement on Agar and I would have been happy to keep him for the final year of his contract. Instead I am praying to all deities that the next one is a proven coach and a further improvement.
  6. Well there's a phenomenon. Rather than relieving pressure in fellow humans, Old Frightful usually induces a rise in blood pressure. :-D I'm more intrigued by 'turrets syndrome'. Is it some kind of mediaeval pox, or an irrational belief that you were Rapunzel in a past life?
  7. I do hope that this is journalistic hyperbole rather than an actual indication of the aspirations of our club. If this happens I won't need any excuse to make this my last season as a pass holder, especially as I will be out of a job this time next year. If Paul Cooke has anything to do with the club ever again I will abandon all hope for FC evermore and defect to Halifax.
  8. Believe it or not I do know a thing or two about the game and wouldn't have said it had it not been the truth. I could have also told you myself had I not been in an archive looking at Hull KR's annual reports from 1897-1976.
  9. Will I ever see a proven coach in charge of my club? If Radford replaces him it will be a huge mistake. Success with East Hull is one thing, working as an assistant another, but he should go and cut his teeth elsewhere in the Championship before taking on a club like FC.
  10. The video every hetero- and bisexual man should have watched aged 13. You're never too old, guys. ;-)

  12. Not trying to! Personally I hate people deeming things in terms of "high brow" and "low brow" - I believe in culture. People are too quick to pass judgement on what is worthy and what isn't, especially about things they have never watched/done/seen etc.
