  1. I am going to watch Withered Hand & Darren Hayman in Manchester at the end of next month. Nobody or virtually nobody has ever heard of them, Darren Hayman was once of Hefner(which again nobody has heard of). Withered Hand(Dan Wilson) plays lo-fi music. Darren Hayman has done loads of lps and he was on Radio4 a good few years back talking about his “thankful villages” LP. I am really excited but my brother who said “he will take me and it can be my Xmas present” is far from looking forward to it. But the good news for him is comes off nights on the day of the gig so he shouldn’t be tired.
  2. I got in from work and the tickets arrived which is good news.
  3. I am still waiting for my tickets to be delivered for the first test on Sunday!.
  4. Fair play to Wigan strong in attack and defence, i did enjoy the match as i wasn’t bothered who won. There was some bone rattling crunching tackles, RL is a tough old sport. I was wondering if McNamara let Wellens and his coaching staff take over the kicking game for the night, it was very Saints-esq, poor.
  5. The BBC haven’t even got the international fixtures or results i think that is very poor.
  6. Even the most blinkered and one eyed of Saints fans will have to admit we didn’t deserve the win. We are so predictable, with the five drives and hoof. 1. Discipline - it’s shocking and has been like that throughout 2023. 2. No pace - you can look through squads and everyone seems to have pace, whilst Saints have only got Welsby. 3. Centre & Winger needed - we are crying out for either, we got Hurrell on the cheap but Tubby Scoffalot has fallen into his bad old ways. He got another year out of us somehow. 4. Kicking game - woeful. Fair play to Tomkins he had an excellent game and scored a cracking try. Compare that to Roby & LMS i didn’t even know they was on.
  7. What a try fantastic try from Tomkins, Catalans throughly deserved the win, Saints didn’t deserve anything.
  8. Saints and their dreadful discipline, what a bonehead Mata’utia is. I thought the Johnstone disallowed try was very harsh i would’ve given it. We are really clueless at creating anything near the opponents line, and as per usual our kicking game is woeful.
  9. Catalans by ten. It’s been an enjoyable four years but everything has to come to an end.
  10. I think that is a great signing for Wigan if he isn’t unlucky with injuries. I look forward to seeing him back in the SL even though he will be in a different jersey.
  11. I didn’t know Saints had shown any interest in him Barley. They won’t be interested if it means there is a transfer involved.
  12. Cheltenham Town losing at home to the Cod Army 0-1 at HT. If they don’t score tonight they will equal the records held by Coventry 1919-20 & Hartlepool 1992-93 who both went eleven games without scoring.
  13. When FC play at home do they keep the beer takings from the bars on the ground, do Hull City as well!!.
  14. I can’t believe the RFL never agreed with Ch4/Sky in which they had to produce 10,000 cardboard cutouts of spectators. Then they could have been be placed in the empty seats at the matches on tv. The game will never learn.
  15. Bennison is a safe as houses and has got a great future, and he is also still only a young lad. When Welsby sails off to Australia hopefully Bennison will be Saints No1.
  16. Hopefully Saints have learned from the Grace situation and won’t hang around waiting for a player to make his mind up.
  17. I know a few people who didn’t go because they just didn’t have the cash, others said with it being live on Ch4 they decided to stay at home because of the weather and they’d save money. I had a couple of workmates who usually go but they were playing football, one of them did say “they heard a huge roar as they were playing their club football match but it wasn’t at their game”. I didn’t think it was a bad attendance, it was a good atmosphere and both sets Saints & Wire fans made a fair bit of noise.
  18. Saints haven’t got a chance johnny, all Catalans have to do is throw the ball out wide. I don’t know if Hurrell will get a game as he is still celebrating his own crossbar challenge and another week of all you can eat Chinese Buffet for six.
  19. His usual reply is “i can’t fault the player’s effort”. He also likes to say “we made some errors but we can improve on that next week”. He’ll be saying “we can improve next week” after we have lost at Catalans.
  20. Yes i know the players who came in Magic but what about the players who left. I like Bennison but he is not a winger, i think Saints took the cheap option by moving Bennison to the wing.
  21. I think over the last three years G Ref we have hardly brought anyone into the club and instead we have upped the contracts of players already at the club. I would be happy if we signed a quality centre, winger & prop.
  22. It’s going to be a close game. The pressure is on Saints, i can see Wire throwing the ball out wide, Saints will do what they do best, plod down the middle little kick into the corner on the last.
