    Come on they were major developments granted specifically with the intent of getting new stadia for the local sports teams. That was known throughout the process. 

    And the new stadia usually happens when the local council show willing.

  2. Problem with cheap tickets is when you can’t afford to keep selling tickets so cheap. A few years ago at Wakefield under the Glover regime tickets were cheap and the crowds were good but we made no money.  Season after we had to increase season tickets back up to a normal price, but  people had got used to cheap pricing and a fair few were unwilling to renew.

    I will catagorically state having been in attendance at the game that Leigh did nothing different to all the games they have lost, Wakefield played terrible and let Leigh win, just thought I would get that to the forefront for all those armchair fans who will be convinced that is the reason Wakefield lost.

    I will categorically state having not been in attendance, that’s exactly what the radio commentary team stated.  Own worse enemies was the most used phrase.

    You really know #### Adams dont you!! These two are great mates in real life, with a respect for each other beyond  dick measuring. Two equal owners is often a problem but it depends on the ambitions they are pooling resources to achieve - last nights rumour was a £10m war chest to bring SL stability with a substantial academy investment.

    Why now and not earlier?  his 10m war chest could have saved your season

    Hi WT, wasn't there a Trinity fan a while ago saying that has demographics have evolved in the fair city of Wakefield, that Belle Vue is situated in the most unsuitable place it could be for all manner of reasons?

    I wouldn’t say so, it’s probably one of the most deprived areas of Wakefield but that’s why the community elements of the planned upgrade are so important.  
    No access problems, new link road and not as landlocked as people think.

    The more I read that statement its easy to see what is wrong with our game. Wakefield have been getting by for too long just collecting sky money while holding back any teams who could potentially do better. They are not the only one like.

    I don’t think we’re holding teams back we got promoted in 98 first 1 or 2 seasons  with no SL money  and not. been relegated, we’re not stopping other clubs doing the same.  Stadium is an issue but that’s holding us back nobody else.

    There is only one elite sports team that carries the city's name, however, and that should be a huge advantage which Wakefield have never managed to capitalise on for various reasons.

    You’re right we should be a bigger club like we once were and have the potential to be bigger club.   Stadium is the major issue holding us back.  Academy doing well, community trust doing well, merchandise record sales.  Stadium upgrade will change image of club.

    Another Yaha try in the closing seconds, after great play by Davies.  Maloney goals.  FT 40-20

    Sounds as though Trinity ran out of a bit of steam in the last ten minutes, conceding two tries and see another by Les Dracs chalked off for a forward pass.


    Only took 17, 2 out of the 19 squad dropped out with COVID issues so running out of steam was always on the cards especially over there.  I was expecting worse, didn’t do too bad and didn’t bottle it like some.

    Yes Rovers have had their own issues. But the cancelled game at St Helens was not rearranged. It's just that Rovers were 'lucky' enough to be drawn to play St Helens and Catalans 3 times this season.

    Saints were fine at Wembley fine a couple of days later for their open top bus parade and then another 2 days and they cancel the Rovers game.

    Rovers have now had 7 successive games postponed and it just feels like it is not worth buying tickets because time and again the game gets called off.

    Season has become a farce mate, how many other sports would let it get to this.
