  1. Thank you Gav. I will pass that on.
  2. My parents, both well in their 80s, went to the club shop this week to buy a birthday present for a friend. Told me today that no one said hello to them, nor goodbye, nor helped them or thanked them for their purchase. As I've said before, it feels nothing like We Are York anymore. And i don't think anyone from the club cares or wants to listen. The goodwill and togetherness that has been built over the last few seasons is being allowed to drip, drip away.
  3. Still could, and should, have put on a great tournament. Our worth as UK fans of Rugby League has never been lower.
  4. Thank you Gav. Please feel able to pass on my posts above to those in the YCK management team who are in discussions with SMC if it adds weight to the argument.
  5. I agree with what you're saying here Fevrover but I've made my concerns and feelings clear across the clubs SM channels and on here. And it seems pretty apparent that that is not being heard. There's nothing stopping the club reaching out to assist. They certainly manage to remind me when my lottery needs renewing Maybe it's just me, but this season it very much does not feel like "WE are York".
  6. I've always considered us regular supporters as me and me dad have hardly missed a game over those 40 years. And that includes the dark final days of the Wasps when there was scarcely a couple of hundred of us. Plus we try to take in a handful of away games each season. The other half and the kids have joined us for the last few years as well, which has been great. It's an hour's round journey from home to the stadium for us, so not an option to buy during the week unfortunately. But I'm more than happy to make that journey on match day if I can be sure of being able to actually get in the game without any stress. I'm not embarrassed to admit that I struggle massively with anxiety, nerves and my mental robustness in general which has impacted on my ability to plan ahead with confidence - so I'm just looking for a stress free way of being able to turn up and support my team. I know i sound like I'm whinging, but I can't be the only one who just wants to hand over some money and watch some rugby.
  7. Agree. I just want to turn up on the day of the match with my dad, wife and kids and get in without any complications or worry. Just as i have for the last 40+ years. Until that is possible i can't see us coming back. So that is 5 missing fans - ok only 3 are paying but that is two future fans lost, and i always buy them shirts, etc so that is more income lost. God, i hate so called progress
  8. 12 in the end wasn't it? I seem to remember Presley being at 6 & 7 on the team sheet.
  9. This, this, so much this. Perry showed us exactly what we'd been missing against Thunder. If he doesn't get a start in London i think that'll be more of my faith in Fordy being eroded. Fans of Fev couldn't speak highly enough of his efforts. So if he's good enough for a team that's gone unbeaten then he's good enough for us.
  10. More likely he'll be SuperLeague bound. One of the best coaches in the game.
  11. It never rains but it bloody pours. If it wasn't for bad luck we'd have no luck at all
  12. Is it quick enough to play in the halves?
  13. Agonisingly close. Why we waited for the 2nd half to actually try to play, I just don't know. Well and truly in a relegation fight now. Is it one down or two? And i can't believe I'm even having to ask the question....
  14. If someone could explain to me how Whitely hasn't had more game time this season I'd be very grateful.
  15. And look what happens when we actually try something.
  16. FFS....that set on the Thunder line just sums us up. Not a single idea other than drive it in. I'd rather lose with us giving the ball some air and actually trying something. But this is like a slow death.
  17. Number 4 - Letting the ball bounce from the high kick.....
  18. Ford will send them out to play exactly the same way in the mistaken belief that we will somehow wear Thunder down and win it in the final quarter.
  19. Again Dixon has been our only threat. Can he play in the halves? He can kick, he's got a step, he has the ability to make something from nothing. Switch him and BJB cos god knows we have got to create something if we're to get anything from this.
  20. Can't disagree with any of that, Andy. Most creative thing we've done is that DIixon restart where we regained posession. But even then we lacked ideas once we got to within 10m of the Thunder line. Almost impossible to play this game without a playmaker on the pitch
  21. Getting nothing from the man in pink. Lets eye-gouging go one minute then making penalties up the next.
  22. Cockayne moving from the wing to the halves gave him a second lease of life. Let's hope that this is the kickstarter for BJB.
  23. I managed to purchase the stream last night but it isn't playing for some reason. It's not the greatest streaming platform in the world....
  24. Looks pretty much like Dixon is being tackled in the air which should have made it an 8 point try. But i can't remember the last time i saw a ref brave enough to give one.
