  1. Danny Washbrook according to League Weekly, good solid player and very experienced.
  2. Here now weather was a bit wet from Gerona, but brightened up a little. Spotted in Leeds Airport, Konrad Hurrell, Stevie Ward (who was on our flight) and one Mr Ellery Hanley.
  3. Still undecided whether to don my York shirt or Catalan shirt, I'm guessing I might not stand out in my Catalan one though ?. Might just go for a Lokos one to totally confuse any rugby fans!
  4. I don't think it would be good idea to have an unproven coach again. As good as Ellis is I wouldn't want to upset his standing with his club ala Cunningham. A proven quality coach is what's needed.
  5. I think it'll be a derby win, but that'll be the prevobial sticking plaster. I'm envisaging a 7-8th finish, which is not good enough in my opinion.
  6. Shaun Wane or Tony Smith would be a vast improvement. I doubt it'll happen though, I think Lee Radford will get until the end of his contract as rumoured.
  7. York Press saying Ottawa too. https://www.yorkpress.co.uk/sport/yorkcityknights/17515404.york-city-knights-chairman-hails-stunning-start-to-season-new-york-to-enter-league/
  8. Aye and me plus 3 more. We can't wait, and none of us even like Wigan. If there was a game like this every year in big cities around Europe I'd be there with bells on every time, so fingers crossed if Toronto go up they'll make good on thier promise of playing in Copenhagen, Belgrade et al.
  9. Jebus, if playing after the main event isn't bad enough. What the bl**dy h*ll is that? It's nearly as bad as the ball stuck on a stick they give London after the MPG. Do whoever is organising these things not understand image?
  10. Dragons miss out, but the Dragons don't ?
  11. York by 26 if it was dry, looks like it is going to be snowing over the hill on Sunday so Knights by 10. 784 attendance.
  12. A very interesting idea here in the round ball game. It would be very interesting if this forum replicated it, I'm sure between us we could lead them to the top and become SL champions within 5 years ?
  13. My joint top author. And a good story too, although not his best. The only thing that annoys me is, the main character is supposed to have a Yorkshire accent I believe but unfortunately he hasn't got it right, too much 't' for me. Unless that is actually how we sound????
  14. Really good that. Well it couldn't have nailed me any better. The York accent (not the pseudo posh one) has a twang from the North East, the East Riding, and the rest of Yorkshire, so that is bob on. Chuddy, Snicket, Croggy, Nithering etc never knew they were so Yorkshire centric. So no one else calls it a tipple tail?
  15. Just a heads up, there is a replacment bus service on from Leeds, until the first direct train at 13:17 getting you into Bradford at 14:29 which of course is too late.
  16. Does anyone have the details or know where to find the details of the supporters coach? Thanks
  17. Oh no, I know you aren't. Apologies it wasn't meant to be a derogatory term, just trying to put a point across. Yes I agree you brought up a lot of things to think about (like I've got any input at all) and there is nothing like a healthy debate to through up ideas, some may good, some bad and some indifferent. Anything that progresses the Knights is a good thing.
  18. I suppose it just goes to show you can't cater for all, what one finds an attractive proposition another may scoff at. It must be very difficult to run a club and please all but the Knights seem to do it well. I really don't think home advantage is that much of a thing, unless you have a quirk to your ground like you've mentioned. Other than that it's 13 v 13 on a rectangle pitch. Still if something like this ever came about (not likely I know) I would support it fully, but this wasn't really about crowds/supporters it was more about capturing North Yorkshire and help opening up a larger playing pool.
