  1. Thank you for your response and your admission you got it wrong, it takes a real man to admit they have been a fool. I hope your cub survive past 2021 as I hope all of our local rivals do. One thing I would say is this. If you as you say you do want the best for your club then please back the club your support. Rugby League is on its backside and you and countless others need to stand up and be counted. Pull together with all the fans and leave your egos at the door. Hornets have almost been destroyed by egos in the past. I hope the new board are somewhat ego free. I would not want to see anyone's club go out of existence becasue of it. Harold
  2. Thankfully my posterior is in fine fettle. It is the rest of me that is falling apart! In face my good wife has asked me if I could be a little less regular as it interferes with Richard Osmans House of Games.
  3. This is a really nice shirt. Well done to whomever designed it, a good nod to the past. I will be asking Mary to get me this for Christmas.
  4. Good Morning all you Hornets and Stalker Lions, Over this weekend I have taken a backward step from this forum at the request of Mary. During this time I have spoken to a few people about what I have posted and my feelings over the past few weeks. Zac my grandson has suggested I write a blog he tells me this is like an online diary that people can follow. I am looking at charting our progress under the new rich board as well as letting you know all about what is going on in my own life from time to time. If you would be interested please let me know. Harold
  5. I class you as a fool because of you input to the post on the Swinton forum. You made mention of fallen soldiers. They way you described them showed a massive lack of understanding and empathy within your character. For this I am not even sorry! Harold
  6. Their is no need to be rude. Sometimes it is good to talk as at our age it isn't always easy to get out. If my open nature offends you then I'm genuinely sorry. Harold
  7. It is plain to see that in hoovering up all the amateur talent from the local area and giving the finger to the local clubs is not sustainable. We need to plan better. What sort of business model cuts the throat of its talent pool. We need a strong local game. Perhaps is it time for the board to start putting there money where there mouth is and bringing in some old heads from across this league. We need to let the local clubs thrive then perhaps take one or two players as decimating the local game will be devastating for all levels of rugby. Someone needs to have a chat with the powers that be about sustainability. Harold
  8. This has been a very interesting thread, it seems there are a few Swinton fans I would class as fools, that Gas Man bloke and this Lion who thinks he is Rampant. Its a shame they have taken over our page and that I was drawn into it. I had a telling off this morning at 5am when making myself dippy egg and some soldiers. Mary came fuming into the kitchen of our bungalow going mad as I have woken her up early again and been talking none stop about a future nobody can predict. I mean a few people know what the future holds but so far it has been positive. I know it was the same at Swinton before it all went wrong. I do have issues with folk who cannot present or see a balanced argument but that comes from many years in the forces twinned with my love of Big Brother India. I think for now I will go back to trying to calm down as my nurse told me my blood pressure was up again. I am looking forward to the new season one way or another and I am sure you will be hearing lots from me over the season as those of you who know me will know i cannot keep my gob shut. Oh and for those that are interested Mary won the meat raffle at bingo the other night so it is steak for tea later. I cannot wait as she does an amazing perppecorn sauce and dauphinoise potatoes that I will demolish when I get back from the hospital. Harold.
  9. Well Mr R Lion if you come down to Hornets this year you will see me. I do not hide behind fake names unlike some people. I will be at as many games as my gout allows and if you ask about you will find me. Please do not insinuate that I do not hold the best interest of the club at heart. I have been honest about my family and my situation, unlike you I do not hide on the internet. I find your post very disappointing, now I can see why other Swinton fans do not like you! As Zac would say how do you like those apples! Harold
  10. Well I was saying to Mary this week I do not know why he has not bought the club he supports. When I met Mary she was a big woman it is what attracted her to me in the first place. But she had a friend that was a lot thinner called Susan. Susan loved money so I knew she was not the woman for me. Maybe Leigh is just a step to far for most people as Beauford at Leigh has a lot of money. Harold
  11. Well for a Swinton fan you do not give much love to your team. I would suggest you found another team to watch next season but please do not come watching us as I am not a fan of turncoats. Harold.
  12. There is an old Jewish proverb that my old headteacher Mr Llewelyn quoted that goes something like this. If someone calls you a horse you turn the other cheek, if they call you a horse again you ask them not to, if they call you a horse again you punch them on the nose, if they call you a horse again....well its time to buy yourself a saddle this has left me very wary of people. I thank you for your post Joe 90 but one thing concerns me. If your a Leigh fan why would you go watching other teams. I would never dream of going watching another side as I would be watching the team I support especially not local teams that I have a healthy hatred for. Next why would you support any single man unless you were in some for of personal relationship with them do not get me wrong Zac my grandson has on many occasions told me I am not very understanding of two men in a relationship but over the past few years I have come to understand that love takes many forms. I hold no grudges as I was a member of church where the organ player ran off with the curate. There wives were rather upset but I am proud to call then my friends. Me and Mary often have them over for a Sunday roast as they are a fan of Marys Lamb. I have totally lost what i was thinking now. But lets say this. I will be wary until I have seen a few seasons of this and no backdoor name changed are afoot. Excuse the pun hahah. Harold
  13. That is the scary thing I was talking to Mary last night before she went to bingo about this. It is the fear of the unknown. Nobody knows what they are planning. They promised Swinton fans the name wouldn't change then they tried to change it anyway. Someone mentioned something to do with the tax people and the name not changing with them but if you read the morning paper and its Manchester Hornets then nobody cares what the tax office has us down as. Anyway I think Mary got fed up of me as she left on the ring and ride before she said goodbye. This uncertainty is setting Marys IBS off and my gout is driving me to distraction. The fear of the unknown and the fact that rich folk with no connection to this town could be plotting to take away our name is causing me no end of problems. Harold
  14. That my boy will not happen. If he thought he had it rough with you men, wait till I bring my rage!
  15. I am also worried about this. I am at a loss as to why any person of sound mind would be shocked at support upset and anger when you are trying to change a name. How did the name change come about and was it mooted before hand. I know somebody mentioned The Sun newspaper, bloody awful rag.
