  1. Sorry Deano. Thought forums were for discussion. We'll just go back to DR and stadium bashing then.
  2. Agree that it is too early to be drawing any kind of conclusions particularly when, as you rightly point out, we have played two of the favourites for promotion. But sport is about momentum and the trend of performance, when combined with a disappointing set of pre-season results, we do need to put a together a better showing soon. For a defence that was miserly in the extreme last season we have shipped 10 tries in two league games - 17 in five if you include the pre-season. In return we have crossed the opposition whitewash just 6 times in those five matches. This drop in creativity has, in my opinion, never really been corrected since the unfortunate loss of Ben Cockayne. We lack that bit of unpredictable 'maverick' that Ben had in spades and that other teams at this level seem to possess. Of course, all easier said than corrected - the 'joys' of commenting from this side of the keyboard - and I hope that I am made to eat every single word that I have typed!
  3. Don't understand why we played friendlies against Championship teams, particularly Bradford who have got out of this with a right result. I would rather go watch us play a team that we aren't going to see during the regular season, and i can't see that Fordy or the opposition learns much as they keep their cards close to their chest.
  4. Really sad to see Graeme go. I had hoped he would be able to stay on and mentor the younger middles. Sensational footwork and soft hands when near the line, and an absolute leader every second he is on the pitch. Been a pleasure to watch him play in a Knights shirt.
  5. Fantastic signing. Some more of this ? will do very nicely indeed!
  6. Bob Beswick leaving Wolfpack to join Newcastle. Looks like they are serious with their SL Champions by 2030 mission statement.
  7. Yeah, I said on this on this forum last week we won't see him again. Not been in training for a long time now apparently ?
  8. Would make a cracking signing and will bolster our strength on the fringes. Particularly as I suspect we won't see Ash back next season.
  9. He was still going on about the Knights earlier this week in the T&A. I'm beginning to fear for his mental wellbeing ?
  10. Loved watching Ash at fullback. Those arcing runs searching for a gap before suddenly straightening up combined with his ability to chime into the line at just the right moment brought us great dividends a couple of years ago. I don't think we make the best of his abilities playing him out on the fringes, and it doesn't look like he enjoys the game as much as he did because of it. Marsh in the three-quarters and Ash back to his best position anyone?
  11. Good idea George. I tried, and failed, to get the money together for me and the missus to buy tickets when they were on promotion. To some of us it is a big expense.
  12. Please can we get some of this kind of service at the new ground? Would have done anything to have a pretty bring me a pint in that sunshine last sunday ?
  13. At long last, a worthy replacement sponsor for Slalom Lager ! But a young un like you won't remember that Gav ?
  14. Many thanks for putting the post up ?
  15. Just think of the possible attendance if the two Barrow clubs meged ?
  16. Me and my dad have always been those strange breeds that never buy a season ticket but then go to every match. This may be the reason we finally change that cos i'm damned if i'm going to pay a tenner extra every week just to park up.
  17. Will genuinely put me off going as i am not paying a tenner to park, full stop. No buses, and i cant park elsewhere and walk as my dad is well into his 80s. Suspect the council will go back to a fiver and claim they have compromised whereas all they will have done is been successful in their plan to get money out of football and rugby fans.
  18. Makes a bit tight for anyone at the cinema to see anything other than a 90 minute film ?
  19. And no doubt the cost of the match will be going up too. It's like we all have a magic money tree growing in the garden ?
  20. blimey.... don't do that... you just took about 8 years off me life
