  1. 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.

    Oh God, how long have you got?

    I guess the short version of this season is that we started with an enthusiastic amateur as manager and got terrible results, hired a former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper as head of recruitment, recruited an absolute set of misfits with no coherent idea of how they were supposed to play, and sacked the manager and hired another one with a completely different playing philosophy (twice).

    The current manager was previously flying high with Worthing in the National League South, but clearly didn't know anything about any of our players or our league when he arrived. Hopefully he has been learning quickly as we won the last two, but it's going to be a scrap to stay up. All this with one of the biggest budgets in the division. Absolute object lesson in how not to run a football club, but we've been a basket case for years and this kind of #######how has long been coming.

    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.

    glad I saw the kangaroo tours and tests of the 80s and 90s - what a travesty we have these days in comparison international wise

    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”. 

  4. 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. 

  5. 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.

    Is that the attendance or tickets sold/allocated? I think the figure should always be tickets sold/allocated, because that takes out “life” choices/illness etc.

    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. 

  7. Salford deserved the win, we (Saints) went back to our bad old ways of poor discipline and losing a big lead. If you are going to have someone sent off don’t do it against a team like Salford. Once again our goal kicking was biz, it is puzzling why we have gone into another season without a recognised goal kicker. In 2023 we used six goal kickers, so far it’s three in 2024. Makinson had a stinker with a capital S, but he wasn’t the only one Bennison, Walmsley, Sironen, Mbye were appalling. But i have to give a special mention to our NRL superstar Waka Blake this lad reeks to high heaven and i have seen more movement in a static caravan. As soon as Salford threw it out wide to Lafai & Cross it was clear they would have success. It makes me wonder if he wants to be here, i don’t blame if he doesn’t because last night it was bitterly cold but quite a few fans were willing to take him to Manchester airport last night. 
    Fair credit to the Salford fans they backed their side throughout the match, over the years we have sneaked games in the last minute against them so it was finally revenge. It was good watching the Salford fans celebrating at the end of the match, i was probably at our old hallowed turf when they last beat us. 
    If Blake is playing next week and Percy is suspended then i can see a heavy defeat at Leeds. 

  8. Talking to my mates coming back from the match and we thought we were fortunate. With the injuries Leigh had picked up during the game we thought they might’ve tired but they kept on coming. They had us stretched out wide a lot of times, Leigh are a great watch when they throw the ball about. I was very very impressed with their No6 (sorry don’t know his name). Thankfully we held firm which is a big positive our defence is really good. Our attack is hit and miss a bit like our kicks in general play, i wish we had someone who could kick a 40/20. 
    There was a lot of errors throughout the match but it was still entertaining to watch in the stadium, it was a good atmosphere with the Leigh fans backing their side for the full eighty, but by eck it was freezing. Standouts for Saints hmm the Makinson try was a cracker i thought Hardaker (was it Hardaker) had Makinson but he managed to get over.
    My MoM was the person who put Buddy Holly on by Wheezer at HT.
