  1. So, are they going to let you and your near neighbours be together or are Fev going to be in with the Wigan fans? Last year Fev were in with Saints. don't think they wanted to stick the Fev and Cas fans together.
  2. I think Sheffield are better than people give them credit for. When they played at Fev in the league, Fev eventually won by 44-18, but early in the second half they got close. I think with all their home games to come, they will get into the playoff's and on todays display are not easily ruled out. I guess Leigh may have had an off day, but maybe part of that was down to how well Sheffield played.
  3. Having watched some of their game against Sheffield I'm didn't see anything that makes me think we can't win. They were even gifted a try, which took them into the lead, which was never a try.
  4. Suspect he meant with a camouflage shirt with tree's in the background.
  5. I think that we may need to find a way to divide the 'away' end in future. I don't know how many that end holds, but if the end we were in at York holds 900, it has to be more than that. If it's 1500 them that means we can only have 5500 home fans in. Good to see a big crowd expected. It would be nice to have a good atmosphere and keep building attendance, though I expect there will be some folk unhappy they can't sit where they normally do.
  6. The capacity was quoted as 7,000 in 2020 when Wakefield AFC announced as tennants. Capacity in 2020 If the club is promoted to SL the capacity can be increased by adding crash barriers on the terracing.
  7. But presumably you are comfortable having Saints, Wigan and Warrington, all 3 in a similar close proximity, in SL
  8. The point I was trying to make about our performance was we are still very hit and miss. So far we had only hit anything like the form we would expect on maybe 3 or 4 occasions. We looked good against Leigh and Barrow, okay at York, and probably we were better at Catalans than we think. Apart from that we have been more miss that hit, even the cup game at Batley the defence wasn't all it could have been. Now last nights game was one of those that is effected by the size of the pitch, really needs the RFL to invest and get their facilities up to scratch. You cant play an expansive game on a pitch where 6 passes take you from one touch to the other. I think that come the playoff's we will be spot on, as Mac always likes his teams to peak at the right time, but our expectations, as fans, are for so much more.
  9. Tried to play rugby the first half, and kept putting the ball down due to lack of space. Changed tactics second half, played direct and then exploited the pressure we put on their pack. Not a classic, and we did struggle at times against kicks... players who would normally be solid, putting balls down. Don't know what Luke was trying to do when he nearly gifted Walters a try.
  10. Thought Fev were pretty ordinary in the first half. Tried to throw the ball around where the was no space, and as a consequence put the ball to the ground at least 10 times. Second half we were much more direct, which gave us more space. Some of that could have been Bradford tiring. That type of pitch doesn't play to our strengths, but a win is a win.
  11. Doesn't really give championship clubs wanting to build towards super league a hope in hell, especially without being able to run academy.
  12. I had seen this somewhere, and I don't have facebook, so this must have been in a thread on here.
  13. Hopefully he will have a SL gig next year... with his current team.
  14. Not sure it needs much firing up
  15. Number or names and addresses? Just let me get mi crystal ball
  16. Fev also ran an academy, which I believe they were forced to close. This was fully funded by the club, where all the SL club's academies had RFL funding. I am sure we would be happy just to be able to run one, but why not let it be a level playing field and split the funding to include the clubs that want to run one.
  17. Think we need to add more lines to the Fev haters bingo card!!
