  1. Didn't see that, although I was about 20 yards in front of the bunch of young lads I assume you mean. Seen the tweet about David Singer about 10 minutes ago. Pretty vile wasn't it? The account had been removed and rightly so.
  2. You got evidence of that? If so, please send it to the club. Aside from a few fat lads taking their shirts off and waving them in the air, nothing happened (that I saw) that I would call dickheaderry. Either inside or outside.
  3. I think a lot of people are still suffering from the delusion that there's still a massive gap between SL and The Championship. There really isn't. The championship has grown in quality in recent years. The gap between the bottom of SL and the top of The championship is quite manageable these days.
  4. Long story short. Feisal Nahaboo. It's taken 4 years or more to recover from that fustercluck.
  5. While some other clubs lied, cheated and bashed out the occasional artist's impression of an impressive stadium to maintain their place in the top division. But there's no point dwelling on the injustices of the past. We need to keep doing what we're doing, gradually improving, while trying to eliminate cock-ups like last season. The land could be the game changer for us. If that comes off, we've got a big chunk of outside income to look forward to.
  6. Pretty much agree with that. I would guess that if and when the plans for the land come off, then the situation will be very different. But we're about 3 years minimum from that happening. That said, if we did find ourselves in the unlikely position of being grand final winners, the emotional part of me we soon override any sensible thought.?
  7. If you look at our squad, you'll see that we're only using Leeds to occasionally cover full back, usually one of the wingers and usually one of the centres. I'm sure we'll be fine without help from Leeds. Indeed we've performed just as well without the temporary cover as we have when we've had it this season.
  8. We've seen some beauty brain farts at POR lately, but Shaun Ainsough's is in a class of it's own.
  9. I think Headingley would be the ideal location, followed by Doncaster, Leigh, Warrington. With respect, Odsal is an awful choice. It's falling to bits, looks terrible on TV and is not a pleasant place for the fans.
  10. Think the OP is being very premature (my wife tells me I am all the time ?) We've had a good run, but this league is tough and extremely un-predictable. I'm a long way from getting giddy just yet. And FWIW I don't buy into the RFL hate us conspiracy nonsense.
  11. The Johnstone injury was priceless. Tried to put in a grubby late shot/shoulder charge on Dane Chisholm. Karma
  12. Nah, they were just scoping out the 6 monthly replacement of the flags.
  13. Do you think the planned development will ever go ahead as it's been sold to Cas? I can't imagine physical retailers are remotely interested in acquiring new square footage anytime soon. Surely that land is more valuable if it can be re-zoned as housing. This pie in the sky shopping development might just be a stepping stone plan.
  14. No We must be due some more bull poop drawings soon though.
  15. Who knew that Wheldon Road started in north west Leeds?
  16. Thing is though, Hallowell Jones and Langtree along with LSV, Widnes and Salford are Ikea flat pack jobs. The build at headingley is on a totally different level. The north stand in particular being a totally bespoke build.
  17. Don't worry. It won't ever get built. The wider development is far from likely to happen, not a single retailer is signed up and two of the big names that allegedly expressed an interest are sliding into the brown stuff. The existing developments at Xscape and Jn32 have plenty of empty units, there is simply no requirement or demand for more. There's also the massive expense of moving the electricity pylons and remodelling the motorway junction. Axiom's best hope for the land is to get it re-zoned as residential, in fact it would not surprise me if that wasn't the plan when th
  18. Not a viable proposition in my opinion. It's a good 8 miles from Wakefield, along some of the most congested roads you could imagine. Wakefield's crowds would dwindle. That's if it ever even gets built. I just don't see it happening. If the big retailers that Axiom think they are going to attract were interested, they'd already be in the 1/4 empty retail park over the road.
