  1. It's as clear as mud, hopefully we'll get some clarity soon because I won't be booking hotels or train tickets until I know I have a ticket for the game. Not blaming anyone in particular, it's not surprising given the situation we're in.
  2. Yeah, looked like nothing at the time. And then when he's still surrounded by medical personnel 10 minutes later you start to wonder...
  3. I've ordered a shirt. I was at the game where Masoe got injured and I've felt a sense of guilt ever since. I love this game but it's always worth remembering that the stars we love to watch are putting their bodies on the line every time they go on the pitch, for our entertainment.
  4. Pretty much - the only correction from me would be that his try was in the very first minute. 50 seconds on the clock when he scored, more or less. And what a thing of wonder that try was - the step inside to wrong-foot the defender and then it's just shear pace that gets him over.
  5. Thought that was enjoyable. Good tries and a bit of needle. I'd have liked to see the ref deal with some stuff that was let go, but it was a decent watch.
  6. Well, it seems like the victim of that will not be on the pitch. But the guys who dumped him on his neck stay on.
  7. It would be crazy for them to do anything else as far as I can see. There will be some number of tickets rolled over from last year (including mine) and they don't have any certainty on what the allowable capacity will be. They really don't want to be in a situation where they have sold more tickets than they have capacity for.

  9. It's all about opinions, but that looks absolutely hideous to me. I wouldn't wear it if it was a cycling shirt either.
  10. This is smart. Given the state of this thread I'd counsel against hard drugs as well.
  11. York are really needing to get a league win on the board here. And if we think it'll be easy we'll not be getting it.
  12. Nice. I'm a geologist and used to run a field trip where we did an exercise along the banks of the Corinth Canal. In some of those images you can see some geological faults which we got the participants to map on each side of the canal. Then we had a quick boat trip through the canal and back. I miss doing that trip but I'd be surprised if I get to run it again.
  13. I want to agree with you but I'm not sure where these additional 6k fans are coming from (in round numbers, for either club)? I've been watching City for a while and the best I've seen was 5k odd for a friendly(!) against Newcastle Utd. York is an odd place in that so few people seem to care about either professional club in the city. The Knights are going in the right direction but they would need to increase crowds at least 4-fold before ground capacity would be an issue.
  14. Don't be silly, that was Great Britain. Completely different, oh yes.
  15. The problem you'd have is that no Sunderland fans would identify with the merged club, and no Newcastle fans would identify with it either. You wouldn't need an 80,000 seater stadium for it, that's for sure. I submit that a merged Wakefield club would face the same issues. You might attract a handful of new fans, at the expense of losing pretty much all the existing ones.
  16. The Knights are a good and brave side, but I can't see them getting much against Wigan. Hopefully they can at least give them something to think about.
  17. If you have a few days to spare you can find the hundreds of pages of posts on the YCFC forum where this very subject is discussed in mind-bending detail. This is what most fans wanted, but the short version is that this proved to be impossible.
  18. It's a decent watch. York lacking discipline in crucial areas and also lacking invention on the last play, Toulouse looking very good.
  19. I think my favourite commentator moment was when the guy said that a goal-line drop-out was "as good as a try".
