  1. 10,488 at Saints tonight which is up 108 on last year. I didn’t think we’d make five figures after the pasting on Sunday and the Z-Fest tactics that Wellens sticks with. Even i was tempted to give it a miss but i pushed myself. It was ruddy freezing as well, fair credit to the FC fans for making long journey.
  2. I do feel sorry for the FC fans that made the long journey they are proper fans and perhaps a little crazy for making the trip. They are the worst side i have seen at Saints this season….after Saints. Next Thursday will be a different game, will wellens go back to the grind we’ll have to wait and see.
  3. Warrington were superb in the second half, their fans must be confident of a trophy this season. They were class from 1 to 17, power down the middle, pace out wide. As for the shambolic Saints i wasn’t surprised by the result Wire could’ve easily put 50 on us. I thought we was fortunate to beat Wigan, if they hadn’t have had a player sent off we wouldn’t have won. I have seen enough of Wellens and his one tactic of five drives and a practice kick. Saints have No Pace, No Plan B, No Kicking Game In General Play. Saints need a big clear out at the end of 2024, id start with Wellens, get rid of Roby, tell Smith he can stay as the women’s first team coach but cannot be involved with the men’s first team. Frayssinous can go. As for players Makinson, Blake, Davies, Royle, Hurrell, can go.
  4. Leigh have got quite a few injuries but fair credit to them they kept plugging away. Wigan are a class side with so much quality. A full house on a wet Thursday night is excellent, Leigh have really come on over the last few years. I am really pleased for Mike Latham he really is a nice fella.
  5. Ah i see thanks for that Goose. I love the film Sergeant York but i think i have only seen it on terrestrial tv once. My Pa used to love Gary Cooper.
  6. Looking at the films on terrestrial tv it seems as if the channels that show movies only have around fifteen films between the lot of them. Some of the films are great as i love B&W movie, but i often think there have been thousands of films made from the 1930’s onwards. Does anyone know why there isn’t much choice!!!!.
  7. The Saints attendance Vs wigan last Friday was up 892 on the 2023 match.
  8. I think there are only two clubs who haven’t lost a home game this season in Catalans & wigan. I was wondering which was the last club that went undefeated at home in the SL!!!!.
  9. Placebo & PJ Harvey would be my choices.
  10. I’m a season ticket holder at Saints and it doesn’t bother me whatsoever if free tickets are handed out for two or three games. I would sooner see the away end full instead of it being left empty. Like you say headtackle some of them might return, whilst others who cant afford to attend it gives them a chance to see live RL. If it’s a nice day the kiosks in the concourses should do a roaring trade. I would’ve loved to have known how much money Saints made from the bar takings on Friday.
  11. I had no complaints with the wigan try it looked fine to me. If the game had finished 13 Vs 13 i don’t think Saints would have scored a try because we looked bloody clueless near the wigan line.
  12. I have only just got back home as i nipped into town after the game with some of my mates. I honestly don’t know how some are going to get home as they are blitzed but they were plastered before the game. I told three of them they shouldn’t be drinking so much before a match as their behaviour is embarrassing. I will have to rewatch the game but my drunk mates wanted to kill me because i said “the best team lost”. I tried to explain to them why but they wouldn’t listen. I do think our defence is amazing and we can tackle all day long 8 out of 10 times, but our attack can be predictable. Until Makinson scored we offered nothing near the wigan line it was very Cas-esq. The tackle by Dupree did look like an elbow and a red to me but i could be wrong, the Byrne looked ok though. Over all it was a great day and a cracking atmosphere from both sets of fans, the wigan fans i spoke to after the game were very magnanimous in defeat.
  13. Have the players discussed going on strike because of the cheating by players!!!!.
  14. There is only one way Saints can play the game and that is down the middle, they lack pace out wide. The sun is making a guest appearance at the moment, Wellens won’t like that. Wigan by 10.
  15. I have enjoyed the first half. Cas are missing a player who can create something. You can’t beat the old fashioned stadium when it is lashing it down, but i would sooner have the new so called sanitised Lego built stadiums if it keeps me dry.
  16. I think you are safe now wilson the likes of Oxford City have given it a good go but they just haven’t got the squad or the cash to stay up.
  17. I was at Old Trafford when the Aussies scored that last second try against us, was it Meninga who made the break and nudged Gibson out of the way. I can’t remember the year but it was sickening losing against them. I enjoyed the day as a whole though, “Ere We Go, Ere We Go, Ere We Go”.
  18. Id be spoilt for choice but id go for the Dark Ages when Cunningham was coach. He was a fantastic player but his coaching style was dreadful.
  19. I have just finished watching the two part documentary called “The Exiles Secretly Deported”. It’s the story of hundreds of Chinese seamen who worked for the Merchant Navy during wwii and had settled in Liverpool. Late in 1945 they started to disappear from their homes and were never seen again. The story is quite shocking on how the men and their families were treated by the british government. It is so so sad.
  20. I didn’t want to go the match but i was persuaded in the end, now i am glad i did. It was an entertaining match, i thought we’d get pasted before KO then when we went 8-0 down i feared it could be 30/40pts. Fair credit to leeds they played some exciting RL in the first half and although it is painful when your club is on the receiving end, i do appreciate good RL no matter who it is. Saints did really well to get back into the game, i still think we need too improve our last tackle options. A big pat on the back for Bennison, Lomax, Dodd, Walmsley, Mata’utia, Knowles, Mbye, Bell, Wingfield, Delaney. Even Blake had an ok game. Excellent crowd with the weather not being great.
  21. What has gone on at York City, they are a team i didn’t expect to be battling for their lives in the National League. It is so tight at the bottom anyone up to Dag & Red in 13th could still go down.
  22. I have got tickets for The Lovely Eggs & The Breeders both in Manchester. I just hope a Saints game doesn’t clash with TLE as i think id have to give it a miss. The Breeders are fine as that is midweek.
  23. I’ve not got a clue how they work it out EW, but the person who bought the ticket and stayed at home thought he made a wise move.
