  1. Brilliant piece of work. Very evocative, hopefully in the not too distant future we can enjoy the Derwent Park atmosphere again.
  2. Well done to you guys and the reds supporters group for organising it. Great effort again in raising funds for the respective clubs.
  3. Absolutely mate. Unbelievable that some ##### will do that. Everybody is working hard to try to make sure we have a club to go back to with some brilliant fundraising being done and then you get dickheads like that. Hope the damage and loss isn’t too bad. Another great listen this afternoon, well done everybody.
  4. It’s been a brilliant initiative by the club to hold these. Every week has been brilliant and to get guys like jjb, wagga Phil and the rfl reps has varied the content. A big well done to the club and especially Gary McKeating who does an excellent job.
  5. Have we got a live chat this week?
  6. Money transferred. Cheers
  7. Spot on mate. What is the account name for transfer? Cheers
  8. If they are still there put me down for Ray Wilkins, Ian Wright and Charlo, if they’ve gone any will do. I’ll bank transfer 15quid.
  9. Cracking entertainment for an hour. Great to hear from ex town greats like Big Jim and corky but also insights into the club from Chris and the players. What seems to be clear after a few of these chats is the group of players Chris has assembled are very much a tight knit group. Let’s hope that at some point we are able to see them at Derwent park again. Stay safe. UTT
  10. Definitely were mate and to cap it all went on the pop after it, went in an Indian restaurant, had only heard of madras and vindaloo and chose a vindaloo. Took my mind off the defeat for a while?. Great memories to look back on, I wish there were some videos/dvds from games of that era.
  11. There was a flag but it was on the try line, that was the dead ball line hence no flag. Couldn’t believe at the time that try had been given because it looked 100% over the dead ball line.
  12. If this goes on for any length of time, which I think is likely, the face of some sports will be changed beyond belief. The next payment of money from nine and Fox to the nrl is apparently being stopped. Not sure how financially viable Australian rugby league is but overall those 2 companies put apparently 400 million dollars into the sport for broadcasting rights. That’s an awful lot of money and those broadcasters might just have the upper hand when they come to negotiate new contracts which just might be a lot less than they are now. Hopefully we’ll all still be about to watch the sport we love, whatever it’s form, when it’s all sorted. Stay safe everyone.
  13. Might have played in that game myself mate! Can remember playing up on the tops at bransty when town were in the Lancashire cup final in 78 coming off thinking they’d won only to be told Widnes had scored at the death. Didn’t stay for too many pints in Whitehaven that night.
  14. Same for me David, getting taken along by my dad at 6 year old to watch town v St. Helens has turned into 55 years of watching the Town. Many happy memories along the way as well as many struggles but the club have always survived with people pulling together. Even though everybody has there own worries and concerns now there still seems to be plenty of goodwill for the club, long may it last.
  15. Had a similar thought myself, I would have been going to both of the home games over the next couple of weeks and would quite happily still give my admission money to the club if it were to help. I’m also in the process of cancelling sky sports which could also be diverted to the club. I’m well aware that there will be plenty of people affected financially by this whole saga but anybody in a position to help I’m sure would be greatly appreciated.
