  1. The cap should have risen. At least in line with inflation. My own thought was the cap should have been tied into the tv rights increases. So every 5 years or so ( until the last tv deal anyway) the cap would have gone up by a % similar to the increase in central funding.
  2. Lol. No, I think we’ll stick with all away wins except Batley. Bradfords form does depend partly on loanees these days and with Pickers back from Fev for a game ( Fullback has been a problem) and Mellor & O’Connor from Leeds we should be stronger than usual.
  3. Indeed. Even when it’s a young Leeds player with his first game back after injury and a Newcastle player….
  4. In that case it depends on how many fringe Leeds players we get and it looks like just 1. So this’ll be a problem
  5. Who in the Championship are running reserves this season? I think its mandatory for clubs with academies - so Bradford, London, Newcastle. Halifax have run reserves recently - they continuing? Anyone else?
  6. It'll be equal at half time - say 10-10, then Bradford will bring on a bunch of reserves & u19's and lose the 2nd half 18-6. So 28-16 to Fax.
  7. Darren Gough on Talksport was saying that YCCC are not a wealthy club. So this hit on revenues along with sponsorship withdrawal will hurt. Can a County cricket club go into administration? Is there a holding company?
  8. Halifax Town have been fairly steady last few years as well. They get about 1900 (+/- 200) fans. I think they could get a few hundred more if they got out of the conference into div2. I assume both clubs have equal rights at The Shay?
  9. Bulls have signed an exciting back line. If they're misused and we continue with 5 drives and a kick then I'll be unhappy. My other concern is with Broughy, his early season mobility was what I expected with a guy with over 500 games under his belt and in his late 30's, but he more than made up for it with nous and tactical kicking accuracy. The last half dozen games he played once his bicep injury had healed, he was down on everything he had shown pre-injury. Mobility was less, kicking wasn't as accurate. Maybe he was getting less time as the forwards were carrying injuries as well, he was getting pressured more, Lilley was helping out but he was struggling.
  10. There'll be people on this forum disappointed that there isn't a £1 halftime gate at Old Trafford! (please tell me there isn't one...)
  11. I think a lot will depend on how the game is reffed. Both teams will try and slow down the play the ball when they are defending, loads of wrestling with 3rd man on top until the defensive line is set. Both teams will throw their arms up at the ref when attacking, complaining about the slow ptb. If the officials clamp down on it and let the game flow, one of the teams will win. Otherwise, the other team will win.
  12. Zero hours contracts hadn't been invented then
