  1. It makes you wonder where these rumours come from.
  2. I read in this week's League Express Fordy and Jon Flatman along with some club sponsors had a look round the new stadium last week. Fordy said he was well impressed but when asked about the rumour the Knight's are about to sign Blake Wallace from Toronto he said it's nice that people see we're interested in players of that ilk but the club don't comment on other club's players.
  3. I was suprised nobody mentioned where a lot of us were on the corresponding weekend last year along with a few pictures. I would have put 1 or 2 on but not savvy enough!! Toulouse ring a bell??
  4. Couldn't agree more about the loss of Benny! I've just come home from having a chat with a pal of mine and I told him I could put my finger on the precise moment the Knights lost their potency in attack in my opinion. He said straight away what I was going to say. " When we lost Ben Cockayne". I've come home, put the forum on and there's Jon T., [coincidently my namesake by the way!], saying exactly the same thing. Incredible! I also agree it was a sad loss which was not and hasn't been and unfortunately won't be, easily rectified. As has been said in another post, it's early days yet and we've had two of our hardest looking tasks of the season already so I'm certainly not too worried yet. I've every faith in Fordy and Jon F. to get us there eventually.
  5. Toulouse away should be our toughest game of the season and let's face it, we could have and maybe should have won. Taking all that into account it all bodes well for the season ahead. Having said that, it's a funny old game and it's a long season!
  6. I'm afraid that name doesn't mean anything to me in the era you mention Roberto. The only Parkin I can remember played for York about 50 or 60 years ago.
  7. If you could mention his name it might be a help.
  8. Pity they couldn't hang on tothe lead but a good result none the less!
  9. All the best to you both Peter! Hope you're ok soon and back in the swing!
  10. Just read the Hull F.C. 2020 Preview in this week's League Express and I see they played the Knights in a match behind closed doors last Saturday! It was played in 4 quarters with tries by Johnstone, Naulago, Dawson-Jones, Shaul and Cam Scott clinching it for Hull. No mention if York scored any points but it did quote Lee Radford as saying Liam Harris has been fantastic in pre season, really catching the eye.
  11. Horrible news on Look North tonight in the very emotional interview with Rob Burrow. Such sad news for one of rugby league's gentleman. Such a shock.
  12. Hope you've saved me it David!
  13. No. 3 filled by the guy I daren't believe we'd get!! Always admired him and never understood why Leeds let him go. Brilliant signing and a massive thanks to all involved in getting him on board. A real statement of intent! Well done!!
  14. Radio York said this morning The Knights have said there's no sign of the stadium opening soon and the season will start at Bootham Crescent so it looks as though the Toronto game could well be played there too.
  15. If we can afford to let someone like Harry go it shows how high we're aiming because I've always admired him. Good impact player but may be a tad injury prone?
  16. I like a quiz now and again Andy. I'll have a stab at his initials first to make it even more of a puzzle. How about T.C.? [I don't mean my favourite cartoon character either!]
  17. I see 2 or 3 faces back in the 19 man squad for Saturday who were missing last Saturday plus Andy Ellis!
  18. I'm not sure about buying the tickets on line but I phoned the office this morning and tickets can be bought by phone and they'll be in the club shop on match day for collection or they can be bought in person at the club office in Haxby Road. The office is definitely open between 9.30.am and 2.30pm but usually longer than that. N.G. confirmed what we thought, season tickets aren't valid for the game. Hope this helps.
  19. Good signing for Mark Campbell's team. ☺'
  20. As you are aware David, I totally agree what a good function this has been but as S.K. has pointed out it's such a shame no former player wishes to be involved with organising it. Another point I would like to make is the event has nearly if not always been held when there has been a Knight's match in progress on a Sunday afternoon, usually a play off game in September. Despite this being mentioned to the people involved by me and indeed as far as I am aware, yourself David, nothing was ever done about it. I would like to add I hope the event does continue but if it's the club that organise it I'm hopeful and pretty sure it will be held at a more sensible time of year so that Knight's supporters can attend without having to miss a game.
  21. Couldn't agree more S.K. You always need 2 or 3 old heads in a team to keep the young ones right. Have we missed Benny? Of course we have. Do we miss Tim when he's not in the side? Of course we do. Same with Graham Horne.
  22. I'm sure John Kear will apologise to Fordy and the Knights for his mistake in effectively accusing them of cheating when he realises he's opened his mouth again before engaging his brain. He will, won't he? Won't he?
  23. I think we all realise that H.K. What I was asking was had I missed any news about his absence. If a regular player misses a game or three it usually gets mentioned somewhere but as I said, I haven't seen a mention of him.
  24. Have I missed something recently or am I the only one whose puzzled by no mention in the media or on here about the absence of Joe Porter?
