    Not related to our squad any more but interesting to read that Thomas Minns has left Newcastle before playing a game with them and is training with Wakefield

    There does seem to have been quite a few players who have signed for Newcastle but not hung around for long because of the distance from home, even though that has often been in Yorkshire.

    Did similar at York before moving on to fev , loyalty in the modern game is priceless 😇

    Coolie you need to get out of bed with the York fans. You'll be hating them again if they beat Fev and Leigh🤣🤣🤣. A pattern is emerging that you are beginning to detest success. I bet you can't stand people winning loads of money on quiz shows and say that they are going on a round the world trip.😄 I hope Dewsbury go on to finish second in the league and it might soothe your resentment. Keep posting though🤣🤣

    When they beat fev ,  loxy dear boy😁

    I just paid for my season ticket . It’s  no secret it’s gonna be extremely tough , but I’m really looking forward to this season just to see the big step up in quality , the players we’ll see and how our guys handle it . This is where you wanna be , I just hope we can get enough strength and depth together to stay there .  Crowds were really encouraging this year so hopefully we build on that and get good numbers down to see the ride !

    Well said pal ,  that's what the championship is all about , enjoyment , commitment and courage , good luck town have a great year.

    Think after Featherstone's signing today

     

    York 12,000,000/1

    Dewsbury 80,000,000/1

    Sheffield 93,000,000/1

    Odds irrelevant now because its only going 1 of 2 ways 

     

    COME ON LEIGH 🤔🤣🤣🤣

    yeah ,  but we will p!ss on their chips in the playoffs😉

    George,

    I think York have a chance of the top 6 but not counting chickens until I have seen how the recruitment has gone for all the teams, so I will make some assessments at end of the year. With Leigh, Newcastle, Fev, Halifax, Batley and Bradford all looking strong at this point in time.
     

    Out of interest which two teams do you think will finish higher than Fev?

    fax and leigh will both finish above fev.

    Bradford a decent ground??? For their exorbitant prices you get wet through then in urgent need of a ventilator when you finish the climb out🙄🙄

    i did say generally , in fairness they do have a very good all seater covered stand plus numerous bars and food kiosks , but have to agree about the ventilator , must be our age😉

    There is also a train of thought, that the opposite is true. Discounting shows a lack of confidence in the product or service on offer. Cheapening things certainly doesn't make people feel the need to tell the world about attending events like more expensive/exclusively perceived events such as football for instance.

    Growing up, football was very much a working class sport, but with entry prices to the PL now, I'm not sure you can say that anymore. It's an expensive day out for a family, for example, and completely out of reach for many to do on a regular basis. Yet the popularity is higher than ever. People are only too willing to tell you about the game they have tickets for at the weekend. Can you remember anyone saying the same about a RL match?

    Maybe RL needs to break away from the working class roots it is so very proud of portraying, and consistently flies the flag for. Perhaps a significant price increase would change the image of the game? Add a sort of exclusivity to it? 

    Certainly from a sponsorship point of view, appealling to the upper and middle classes, with the extra disposable income associated with them, is likely to open the door to more exclusive brands wanting to associate with the game and more lucrative sponsorship and TV deals. 

    interesting point , clubs that do charge a higher entrance fee in the championship tend to have higher attendances , leigh, widnes ,fev ,bradford ,fax and york all seem to pull em in , although they have some good offers and generally speaking decent grounds .

    Surprising to see Newcastle at 16/1. Full time environment and with the signings they’ve made, I’d full expect them to be pushing the top 3. That’s the least I’d expect from them. 

    may take time to gel with virtually a new team , i still expect them to make the playoffs though , my top six would be , leigh , fax , fev , york , newcastle and widnes.

    Generally a good idea, although those clubs with the largest followings (e.g Fev) will get the greatest benefits.

    No , the other club's that participate will gain the most .
