  1. That’s good news, sounds like Else didn’t have a broken arm after all.
  2. I’ve always liked him. I thought he was good at Swinton, he always gave us a hard time.
  3. Same when Rangi Chase broke his arm. It looked to be a nothing incident.
  4. I believe Else has a broken arm. Another key player out along with Ridyard and McNally. If it wasn’t for the bad luck we wouldn’t have any luck at all.
  5. It looks like Christmas came early this year.
  6. We beat ourselves really. We had them rocking after an error free start but got dragged into a more attritional sort of game. The twenty minutes before half time killed us. Too many easy penalties and too many wrong choices with the ball, especially the decision not to take the two bang in front of goal. I could have back heeled that one over. I don’t think we “ got to the kick , once in that period. The game was going to be hard to pull back from the half time score. What was encouraging was the way we stuck at it and came back in the second half. We deserved a draw I thought but you don’t always get what you deserve. We played some good rugby with the ball in hand. The length of the field try was worth the price of admission alone. I thought we missed the experience of Ridyard and McNally. If Ridyard had have been playing he would have kicked that goal at the end, it was a relatively easy kick for a right footer.
  7. Gauge - Hero to Zero in no time at all. At least the scales have fallen from some of the Dale fans eyes now. The snidey way he treated Hornets told me all I needed to know about his character.
  8. The ref was the best “player “ on the pitch. The game was a bit turgid, lots of basic errors, neither team really got going for any length of time.
  9. I’m really pleased Wigan won, it’s great for British Rugby League, but that “ try “ was never a try. The ball never touched the line. In my opinion of course. I also thought there was a forward pass in one of the earlier tries but it was only a little one and you see those all the time. Shame about the French ‘“ try “ it would have been a worthy match winner.
  10. There’s a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth over on the football site. It appears that the new chairman isn’t the Messiah most of them thought he was after all. When I used to go on their site I said there was something about the guy that just didn’t ring true to me. This was when he first got involved with the football club. It was obvious that the relationship with Hornets, that had finally got onto an even keel after years of animosity, wasn’t to his liking and he was going to do something about it.
  11. Actions speak a lot louder than words. Re-instate the Hornets office facilities and the club shop, Replace the trophies in the cabinet and the signage outside the stadium.
  12. The evidence is staring you in the face matey. Open your eyes. We must be the only club in the world that can’t charge for car parking. We’ve been moved out of the club shop. Then we got moved out of the club office. Then the trophy cabinet vanished. Then we end up sat in one eighth of the ground. Then the Hornets signage vanished from outside the ground. All peevish, spiteful moves guaranteed to make life much more difficult for Hornets. Is that evidence enough for you ? It reminds me of the old photos of Stalin and the Politburo - one by one the other members were purged and then airbrushed out of existence. That’s before I get to the disgrace that was the Fiji match having to be moved to Salford because the football club priced us out of being able to hold it at the Crown Oil Arena. Talk about cutting your nose off to spite your face ! Every move the new football club board has made has been designed to drive Hornets out of the ground. If they’d have spent one tenth of the effort they’ve used up in trying to remove Hornets on the football team they might still have League status. I used to watch both clubs, ran on the pitch to slap big Reg on the back after the Southend game, went to Wembley for the play off game etc. I would still go to most important games until recently. I’ll never set foot in the ground for a football match as long as this board are running the show. Fortunately the way that things appear to be going I may not have to wait long. People are finally beginning to see Gauge in his true colours. I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him. Anybody in any doubt - just look how he’s behaved regarding Hornets. The only thing Gauge and his gang will be remembered for will be ruining both clubs. Some achievement !
  13. The Fiji debacle told me all I needed to know about Gauge and his cronies. The guy’s a “ wrong ‘un “ - remember who told you first. It’s as plain as the nose on your face that he wanted Hornets out as soon as he set foot in the football club boardroom. He couldn’t do it by fair means as we had a lease on the ground so he decided that foul means would have to do. The old “ Rachmanite “ tactics. Everything he’s done has been to the detriment of Hornets. Things only changed slightly when he got the hard word from the council.
