  1. Glad that my club Salford are not mentioned in the 'small club' category for once.
  2. A brilliant journalist and true lover of RL. The man, the voice, the professionalism, the ability, the loyalty and the integrity of Harry Gration will be remembered forever.
  3. Confidence and an improved defence is with Salford and so Red Devils by 8-12 points.
  4. 'Don't really care who wins, but what I want to see is a good 'tear-up' with at least 4 of each side sent off for long bans and extra time played. Perhaps even the Coaches having a 'handbags' set to in front of the camaras, that would be an additional bonus. Yes, it's called 'vested interest' and I'm not ashamed of it, as we play both clubs soon. 'Every little helps'
  5. The battle of the 'Fords' with 'Sal' to win by 10. (see what I did there?)
  6. Many thanks Josef K for a very fair revue of the match, it's refreshing to read a report about a match where credit is given to both teams. Cheers Pete.
  7. Salford to pip it, based on they've had nearly 2 days more rest than Trin and they will, HOPEFULLY, give a positive reaction to the nilling at Wigin.
  8. As a fan of the Greatest Game for a long, long time, I've finally come to the conclusion that Rugby League and all other Professional Sport are just like a TV 'Soaps' RL certainly has most of the main ingredients for a successful Soap: Jeopardy (of relegation, or of going out of existence) Heros (our team's players & coaches - when they win) Villians (too numerous to mention) Drama Triangles (aggressors, victims and peacemakers that constantly change position) Love affairs (well....not really, only stories of player's misdameanors with other player's wives) What does the forum think...and keep it clean. Pete
  9. Well played Fartown, enjoy your victory. All the best for the rest of the season. Pete
  10. Being one of the 30% that forecasted a Salford win in the forum vote before last night's game, I'm obviously really pleased with the Salford performance at The-Mend-a-Sock Jungle Wheldon Road and that 'Bell Sir Kev' was found wanting, once again.
  11. Yes me too, btw as a way of convincing my wife that my new 'unauthorised' set of clubs were not new, I told her that they were infact my old clubs, but I'd had them 're-gripped'. Smart!
  12. Spilling hot oxo from a flimsy plastic cup all over my freezing hand.
  13. Suave, sophisticated Jeremy Gusgott of TinBath and Ingland Yawnion used to take questions about Yawnion from the Public on the BBC Sport website and so I asked him the following question: 'Hi Jeremy, With Union players now being fitter, taller and faster than when the game first started, there is obviously less room on the pitch for tries to be scored. What do you think about my suggestion of making the game better by taking the flankers out of the game, scrapping lineouts and mauls in an effort to make the game faster with more tries scored?' He choose not to answer my question..... I wonder why?
  14. Russell Watson singing 'Nessun Dorma' before the start of the 99 Final, now thats the way to get the crowd going. This year's performance of 'Abide with me' and 'God save the Queen' at the Challenge Cup Final was frankly attrocious darlings, hardly a note in tune.
  15. 2002, I was at the NRL Grand Final, Warriors v Sydney Roosters nd Mozzer. At half time, the entertainment was billed as Billy Idol, (White Wedding and all that) the stage and lighting were very quickly set-up and Mr Idol enters the ground standing up on the back of a quad bike waving a flag of some sort with all floodflights trained on him. He jumps off the bike, the crowd applause, the band strikes up, he runs across the stage, he grabs the mic, he shouts the usual to the crowd and suddenly there's a power failure to the band - all sound from them stops. He runs off stage, gets on the quad and rides out of the stadium in the gloom to the boos of the crowd. Marvellous! Catch it on Youtube
  16. The scientific name for an American Robin is.... 'Turdus Migratorius' Make's you wonder.
  17. I’m a season ticket holder at Salford to help support the club, but I live in Spain and to see a Salford game on TV is very welcome. The Magic game against Cas is probably my next opportunity. I’ve watched Salford play on the tele in an Irish bar in Kiev, in a beach bar on Bondi Beach, listened to the play-off semi against Wigan on the radio in Helsinki a couple of years ago.
  18. Struth, it was going to be televised when I looked at the beginning of the week. I'll just have to listen to the game on the radio whilst .....doing my ironing. Yes, I know.
