  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. ;-)
  11. This... http://www.youtube.com/embed/j8e4kla7Hd0 as a cover of this... http://www.youtube.com/embed/n3Io_5CEMiI
  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.
  13. I watched it. Live from the studio on Monday night! (top right) Or you're a culture snob. Both high and low culture has its positives and negatives, and has its place. Don't deny yourself a healthy dose of both.
  14. I arrived at the library today only to discover that I forgot to bring a pen. Grrr.
  15. I saw this band in Leeds last night and they were simply awesome. Going to see them again in Manchester on December 15th.
  16. Agree with his recent conduct or not, he made a positive contribution to the game and was a joy to watch. Thoughts are with all those who knew him at this terribly sad time.
  17. The banter is rife on Twitter, even Lord Prescott has been joining in. A few of us have started a 'Hull KR Facts' tweets. Some good ones are as follows: Hull KR facts: They bang on about being the 'Pride of East Hull' but they were originally a West Hull club. Hull KR facts: their ground Caravan Park is on Poorhouse Lane and used to be a stable. Hull KR Facts: Rovers crowds numbers correspond directly with the weekend detention rate at local prisons. Hull KR facts: East Hull is actually an annexe of Lancashire and therefore deserves scorn. Hull KR facts: Every season their shirt design is the exact same one that Wigan rejected as being completely devoid of all taste. Hull KR facts: To purchase a season pass for next season at this year's prices you have to pay them an extra sixty quid. Hull KR facts: Holderness Road when translated back into Ancient British means Hopelessness Road Hull KR facts: Rotterdam is closer to the pitch than their South Stand. Hull KR facts: In order to buy a season pass you need two forms of ID and an extra toe. Hull kr facts:if hull fc released a fart hull kr would try and sign it! Do feel free to join in!
  18. FFS. When will my club stop accepting mediocrity?
