  1. Have to say I laughed at that too, but in fairness to him these signing statements are usually a cut and paste job from a preferred list of platitudes held in the club's word document store, and he probably had to hold his nose a bit when he agreed to it. Good luck to him though, he's been superb for us and I'm extremely sorry to see him go. Perhaps he knows something we don't, and London's sugar daddies are about to spaff yet another pointless fortune up against the wall, just so they can keep playing fantasy RL? Wonder if any of their current squad might fancy playing for a real club? Rhys Curran, Greg Richards, Olsi Krasniqi - could any of them do a job for us? Would we have Josh Walters back?
  2. Can't say I blame you, anyone who doesn't understand the difference between 'our' and 'are' might just be a criminal mastermind.
  3. One doesn't wish to be too greedy. Be happy to keep both, and delighted if Nu decides to sign up for at least another year. Might there be a link here to the rumours re Parata? Perhaps if Webster has determined that we only need one of Jones or Parata (wouldn't have wanted to have to make that call as both are fantastic hookers, at this level in particular) it is in part because he's trying to keep Nu and knows we can deploy him at hooker too if cover is needed. Be very sorry to see Parata go, if the rumours are true, as he's been one of our players of the season. Can Webbo woo Nu?
  4. Chizzy's going nowhere, and for a positive rumour I'll go with..... Ash Golding re-joining us permanently from Huddersfield. Next years back line of Golding, Briscoe, Hall, Hardcastle, Gale, Holmes and Chizzy is going to take some stopping.......
  5. Next season can wait, we ought to be asking him if he's busy next Sunday.
  6. As my mate pointed out, we're now in the wonderful position where a player brought in to cover season ending injuries is himself out for the remainder of the season. Meanwhile a nicely rested full strength Toulouse potentially await us, or one of our fellow PT sides (who have also played getting on for double the season they have) in the playoff final. Bet they're laughing their coqs off. Is it too late for emergency loans? If not and we have the cash, I'd be casting the net this week if I were MC.
  7. 1. Halton 2. Hall 3. Parata Thanks as always for all your efforts re the MOM stuff Col.
  8. I see you and POR still haven't understood my point. Ah well, I'm not going to explain it a third time.
  9. Trouble is that would have required proper leadership making difficult decisions aimed at protecting the game's integrity and fairness of competition, which we know we're not going to find at the RFL. Chuckling at all those above attempting to defend/justify the blatantly unfair advantage knowingly handed to Toulouse this season, including from fans of other Champ clubs who've been just as equally sh@t on by the RFL's approach as we have. Just a shame I have only one bridge to sell as it looks like I could have shifted a job lot.
  10. One swallow does not a summer make. His track record in recent years suggests it's unlikely he'll make it to the end of the regular season before breaking down again with something or other, and no matter how good a lad he is, players like that are a luxury a club like Fev can ill afford. However, as mentioned above I'll be delighted if having now got back into the side (albeit mainly due to our dreadful injury list), he can stay fit and competitive, and make a significant contribution to our efforts.
  11. An embarrassing response like this only serves to emphasise that you don't have anything worthwhile to add to a particular discussion, which, in view of my experience of your posts, will likely come as no surprise to most.
  12. Amen to that Col. We know who and what we're dealing with so I've no doubt all options will unofficially remain on the table until they know the outcome of the playoff final. If Toulouse and (somehow) Bradford make it to the final, I'd expect the idea of promoting two and increasing SL to 14 to be resurrected. Working on the basis that they're unlikely to play any more home games, Toulouse have got 3 league games left while we have 5. By my reckoning that will see us end the season with Toulouse having played 14 competitive fixtures and us having played 26 (21 X league and 5 x cup), i.e. just about twice as many, yet they will still finish top of the league with a fresh and rested full time squad, and be in pole position for promotion. If anybody wants to tell me that's either fair or reasonable, I've got a bridge to sell you. As stated above, I can't wait to play them again. We owe them a proper hiding, for the good of the game if nothing else.
  13. Lest we forget the 5 additional cup games we've played this season, which Toulouse, with their sizeable full time squad and supposedly 3x our spend, were once again laughably allowed to opt out of playing. Good old RFL. I can't wait for us to play Toulouse again, hopefully in the playoff final.
  14. It's got naff all to do with liking him and everything to do with not being able to rely on him, and I can't say I blame Webster on that note, as Fergie increasingly seems to be made of glass. You could argue that he's been pinching a wage for the last two years. I'd be delighted to see him do well on loan and get back into the side, but unless something significant changes I'd imagine this is the long goodbye.
  15. Harrison Halton Chizzy Special mentions for Springer - strong debut, and Blackmore - cracking return to action following the ludicrous ban.
  16. On a slightly unrelated note, does anyone know if the club is planning to restock the replica home shirts, either the standard one or a limited Wembley version? Nothing would suit my shameful post-lockdown belly more than a snug fitting set of horizontal stripes. If you're wondering how to spot me, I'll be the one looking like Pen-y-ghent on an ONS map.
  17. Jeebus wept, is this true? What's coming out of the hurt locker next - perhaps he'll tear a bicep getting swabbed?
  18. 1. Johnny D, by a distance I thought. What a player he is. 2. Hall 3. Locky Special mention to all the young 'uns once again, they all stood up to be counted and should be proud of that performance. Doyle's execution of those chances was outstanding and belied his age; he's got that wee bit of swagger about him and he looks like he's going to be some player.
  19. There's not one youngster I'd drop to accommodate him. Given the way they've all stepped up in the past few months (in more important games) they all deserve to play at Wembley ahead of him. I'd imagine if he is fit and gets a shirt it'll only be because we're short of bodies in the backs and player logistics mean we simply can't line up properly without him.
  20. No hard feelings at all my friend, and agreed re tomorrow, which now looks a little more positive (pun intended) in view of the squad we've named. Interesting to see Welham is suddenly available again, just in time for a run out at Wembley, unless he's one of our usual named decoys.......
