  1. Interesting to be reminded of the continuity within the club. Four sons of team members have played for the current Eagles. Four player have been, or are, part of the coaching set-up. I don't know enough details about other clubs to compare but that looks like a pretty high ratio to me.

    1. Slightly ironic that someone just short of 5000 posts should suggest I should get out more!

    "skank a dodgy visa" An allegation has been made, I don't think it is unreasonable to ask for proof!

  20. Hi Bill Sorry to read your assessment of the state of the Club, I'm not sure how much of the recent history you are aware of? It was felt that a return to the city was a priority, even if the facilities were less than perfect! The construction of the new stand will commence shortly with the target of it being ready for the start of next season. Please continue to enjoy the performances on the pitch and keep the faith, things will get better off it, this is my 30th year following the Eagles, it has not been easy! I have made lifelong friends and met many dedicated fans who have given many hundreds of hours of time, with no financial reward, to maintain Sheffield Eagles. The Club needs supporters/fans to have a chance of progressing, please stick with us for a little while longer! Jim

    V Sheffield

    I take great exception to being described as "a total disgrace", yes I celebrated the win but I did not goad or taunt anyone. I responded when a young home fan goaded and taunted us by asking a steward if he was going to do anything about it, as the youth disappeared. He assured me his fellow stewards on the other side of the ground would deal with him! As they had not witnessed the incident and there did not appear to be any communication between the stewards I have my doubts!
