  1. I think what "bigger" team fans also fail to recognise is the pull the teams like Leeds and Wigan have over youngsters. For Huddersfield to produce a regular supply of home grown talent (that no doubt some will sneer at as 2nd tier) is to be applauded.
  2. I enjoyed the newsroom, really interesting take on the real news of the time.
  3. Just another negative piece RL hacks really don't seem to like the game or the average club. No change for Salford, apart from the few years of Doc madness we haven't had money for years, probably since John Wilkinson took over. Every year we release about 7 or 8 players. It is the norm. We recovered from losing Ratchford and Sneyd we will do the same with Evalds. The real loss would be losing Watson.
  4. The Civil Service has a fast track scheme, they move around different Govt Depts for experience
  5. Really? Salford have this every year often losing more than one player We are well versed in other clubs announcing players still under contract. . I said the Chase signing was badly handled and the Doc had no class. My attitude applies to my own club as well as others. I have no issues with Evalds leaving and as long as he plays to his potential in the remaining games he will go with best wishes. My issue is announcing players so early is it can often lead to drop in form obvious to fans who are still paying wages.
  6. Signing someone and paying a fee is one thing, announcing and parading a player under contract and to another club is different especially with most of the season to still to play. I think most fans feel the same way about wearing the shirt etc, Salford fans are as vocal as any on the subject especially as we are often on the other end it. Many fans recall Steadman celebrating at The Willows at the game that relegated Salford too
  7. No it wouldn't, no club should do this, it is petty and disrespectful. I didn't like it when Salford did it but we all know the Doc lacked class.
  8. John Wilkinson wanted a move to an iconic stadium with a hotel and to be able to generate income from the area. Not sure how this balanced with his owning the Willows variety centre. I can't say which came first the desire to move or being told by RFL that we would be excluded
  9. I have been watching the highlights from 2003 season and a player that was under rated even by Salford was Stu Littler. Leigh fans hated him. The other player from that team was Gavin Clinch. His kicking game is much missed.
  10. Salford were told under framing the future they needed to up grade. The Willows would have cost more than a new stadium and the area wasn't great. The planning was then called in by John Prescott and the delays meant a director went bust, and Peel stepped in. As a Salford fan I am sad to see Evalds go, one of our academy products. I wish Cas hadn't made the announcement with the season in turmoil and so much of it still to play. Cas have got a great player if he has a creative half to play off
  11. I thought there was a deadline that out of contract players couldn't be signed before.
  12. Evalds is out of contract at the end of the season whenever that may be. Salford offered him a deal but it seems he picked a 1 year deal at Cas. Shame the tampering rules didn't move along with the season
  13. Here we go again, next will be Joey. Why only a 1 year deal though?
  14. What is the criteria for a supporting actor? Watch once upon a time in Hollywood last night and Brad Pitt seemed to have considerable time on screen.
  15. Face Tattoos, being called a bird, patronising men. Sportswear on a night out, smoking. Speaking with mouth full or noisy eaters. I could go on...…………….
  16. Was Mark Carroll the guy who managed to spill blood on just about every pitch?
  17. Salford have a long history of signing awful players. many of them to replace Stu Littler. Every year Stu won the battle and remains a favourite with many fans. The recent signing of Silverwood as a adviser is one of the worst. I am sure our pen count went up when he was at the club. Aussies who became home sick (Hudson Smith) only to sign at Bradford. Then the pointless signing of Paul Carriage and Mark Corvo.
  18. Glad to hear the news. I asked for his autograph a few years ago for a certain poster on this forum
  19. Hope his Dad recovers, I had a meeting in WH Smith with him whilst browsing RL mags. His Dad was only going to buy if Kallum was featured. This virus is awful,
  20. We have Bluet&ts in our box again this year, I have heard a knocking sound and discovered its the birds sorting their nest out.
  21. It seems the National Theatre is streaming some of its plays over the next few weeks https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/whats-on/theatre-news/national-theatre-live-online-watch-18019590
  22. Salford had the Flymo bothers playing together. Esne and Jo Famailo The Walne Bothers and I think the Adamson brothers may have played together too
  23. When did the big shoulder pads go out of fashion? was it as the tight shirts came in?
