  1. 11,368 at Saints last night which must be close to being 4,000 down on last year. Going on some of the people i know who are pay on the gate, with my brother being one of them if he isn’t on nights. Even he couldn’t be arsed going last night, he said “he wasn’t wasting £26 to be bored stiff by Wellens tactics”. He went on to say “if the likes of Davies & Royle are regulars in the first team i won’t even watch it on Sky”.

    A lot of the pay on the night fans are disenchanted with the tactics and lack of flair so are staying away. 

  2. I thought Leeds would win tonight i was amazed when id seen they had a +16 start on the coupon. So i put £50 on the Rhinos, and that is why i am a pleb getting up really early to go to work whilst Mr Fred Done & Denise Coates are rolling in money because of suckers like me.
    The leeds first try was a cracker, amazingly Saints decided to throw the ball about in the 2nd half and entertain the home fans. Decent support from the Rhinos they backed their side from start to finish. How long will they stick with Smith. 

  3. Id imagine the CC-SF attendances were far bigger than they are now but what were the crowds for SF’s in the 1980’s-1990’s. 
    I remember being at Old Trafford for the Wigan/Saints SF in 1990 the crowd was 26,500 attending.

    But then the CC seemed a lot more important, the cup for me has been treated shoddily over the last couple of decades or so. The continual changing of the cup final day hasn’t helped either, then there is the financial cost. 

  4. I took my nine year old grandson to the HKR/Saints match, he said “we got smoked grandad” which i didn’t have a clue and still don’t know what he meant. 
    Worryingly he told me “he didn’t want to go to anymore away matches”, i can understand that after some of the behaviour from a minority Saints fans who insist on getting blitzed before a game and continue drinking during it. I understand if fans want to get drunk to deaden the boredom of watching Saints, but do they need to be so aggressive.

    He does seems to have got an awful lot of flak the last few months. I wonder if that has played any part on his decision to leave.

    It could have Damien, some of it is shocking at games just totally unwarranted.

  6. I’ll be disappointed to see Dodd go he still is only a young lad at 22. I am amazed the amount of Saints fans that are be pleased to see the back of him, a lot of them turned against him when he did the dastardly unforgivable move of getting an Aussie agent and trying to do what his best for himself and family. I know people who don’t rate him, they’ll move on to the next halfback who joins the club although if we signed Drinkwater i would be booing Wellens 🤣

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    Essentially because the rights to all these older films have lapsed and so these channels don't have to pay anyone for them to be allowed to screen them. This is why you can legally watch loads and loads of old films on YouTube but streams of newer films put up are immediately taken down. 

    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.
