  1. ............. And surprise, surprise, Bradford Council are now saying they want to find a way to keep the team in the city............. Get the feeling we're being used as pawns in this process.......... But, if it were to come to fruition, I think past actions / decisions by Mark sawyer have always been with the best interests of Dewsbury Rams at heart and I would be confident it would be the case this time around.......... He's no-one's fool, that's for sure !!!
  2. If it isn't already, I think things will be sorted out after next Sunday's games........... I am confident that BARROW will not win three of their last four fixtures (Bulls, Wolfpack, Eagles & Dogs) SO...... The loss of Kyle Trout (good luck to him, BTW) isn't as much of a blow as it might have been, AND it surely means we can start planning / recruiting for next season. For the last few seasons all I've wanted is for us to be competing against teams like Sheffield, Fax, Fev etc............ and now WE ARE !!!! I just hope we can kick on from here and NOT spend next season with our main ambition being avoiding relegation AGAIN !!! The first twenty minutes today were excellent, and then we went in to 'dumb' mode again........... If we can take that out of our game, then we can be serious competitors next year !! First signing...............please,let's get Dom Speakman signed up for 2/3 years
  3. Good to see Dale Morton back in the squad for Sunday's game......... AND Paul Sykes is also in the 19 -- hoping that means his injury from last week isn't as serious as some feared. No Iggy again........... Have we seen the last of him ???
  4. Given the problems we've faced all season, really, we definitely need to start our planning and recruiting with some urgency....... The re-introduction of Reserve rugby might mean fewer players available for Championship clubs so the sooner we start the better. All things considered, I have to back track a little and say that Greenwood has done a heck of a job this season......... Hopefully we can avoid the Loan players' scenario next year and have a team that we know turning out week in, week out. Who would you expect to leave BSJ ???
  5. Wasn't it last season we beat them at their place, something like 48-0 and subsequently lost to them at ours later in the season?? We can take NOTHING for granted........ Just put the effort in, as we did against Fax, cut out the ridiculous errors (Worrincy, Ryder, Iggy for example) and we should be OK......... Trouble is we just don't know what we're going to get from one week to the next
  6. Hmmmmmm.............. And it's our own ground.......And fancy Halifax running out of money so many times in the past.......... I'm sure I saw some blue & whites asking the Marie Curie people if they could borrow their buckets............
  7. Both Batley & Dewsbury have excellent Chairmen (Nicholas & Sawyer) but they do both show tremendous patience / loyalty to their (often) under-performing Coaches............. For what it's worth, I think you need to stick with Diskin for the rest of this season now..... Your team HAS produced some decent performances and you just need to find some of that form again..... Hopefully NOT against us Rams. Someone new at this stage could prove disastrous........ Rochdale haven't really improved have they ??? I don't want to see either of the Heavy Woollen teams relegated,so here's hoping that both avoid the drop AND you guys turn over Sheffield and have a day out to remember at Wembley !!!
  8. OK, I know..........I've been down this route before........... BUT how do these Stewards justify their cost to the Club when someone clearly shouts an obscenity ("You bottle-less C**t) and not one of them does anything about it.........................If I was a parent bringing children with me to a game, I don't think I'd bother again with that sort of behaviour being allowed......... Well done Stewards -- proving yet again how totally useless and overpaid you are !!!!!
  9. If ever a topic needed closing this is it............... PURILE DRIVEL ......... From both sides
  10. Hope you guys can summon up the spirit of 2010 and reach the final........... Not just because it's Sheffield you're playing either. It'll be great for Rugby League in the area and whilst it might give you lot bragging rights for a while, I'd happily put up with it.......... as long as the Rams avoid relegation this season as well
  11. I don't know what our strategy is, but I would suggest that we are better placed than most to be around for some time yet..... We, at least, own our own ground (along with just Batley, Barrow & Fev in the Championship), have facilities that provide an income stream (plastic pitches, function suite etc) AND a chairman who won't spend beyond means chasing a dream that, more often than not, puts a club in greater strife (e.g. Leigh, Bradford).......... At some point the likes of Sheffield, who 'find' money from God knows where, will find the going really tough..... I don't understand the funding criteria but I remain baffled how, such as, our South Yorkshire opponents can find monies to attract players of a good calibre, where we struggle to put a competitive team on the park, and they challenge more often for the upper echelons where we live season to season with the aim of avoiding relegation........ The game is on its backside and the clock is undoubtedly ticking for a lot of clubs........let's hope we're one of the survivors.
  12. What we are seeing at the minute is clueless, impotent,amateurish DROSS !!! ......... Today's squad is just about as good as we've got and should be producing so much better than what we saw today.......... I'm not saying we could or should have won, but for a team with so many experienced players I find it incredible that we continue to tick every box on the stupid list.......... I was buying in to the Greenwood philosophy, but as we go a step further back with every game I am a long way now from being convinced that we have the right coaching set up in place .......
  13. I've been to the last couple of these Jo Cox memorial games, and if there's ever been a cause to support and attend then, for me, this is it. AND, dare I say it, I will actually be cheering on the Dogs as well .......... That wouldn't be the case if it was anyone but Sheffield, might I add If you can, get yourselves down there for the afternoon.......... Show a bit of solidarity for the day
  14. Can I suggest you put these details on the Dewsbury forum as well ?? We're in TORONTO that weekend so, hopefully, a number of RAMS fans will get their Rugby 'fix' at what is a very worthwhile and notable event........ I've attended the last two (as well as other Batley games as part of the Season Ticket agreement) and found them extremely well organised with a unique atmosphere.......... Go on -- We're not all bad over't hill
  15. I was talking to someone the other day about Maurice Bamford....... Recalling how, as an eleven year old, I went to a Saturday morning training session at Saville Town which Maurice headed up......... He asked the question "What does practice make?" and we all, of course, replied "Perfect".......... "Wrong !!" he snarled at us -- "PERFECT practice makes perfect..........If you're doing it wrong, there's no point keep doing it wrong"........... Always remembered that and tried to apply it in different ways through my life. Sadly, the last time I saw him, he was greeting people at ASDA Morley, trying to entice them to buy wine.........that was after his days as GB Coach, TV commentator and Head Coach at a number of clubs....... Believe he was our Assistant Coach in 72/73 as well. Great guy -- R I P Sir
