  1. Really!?!? Is it more disrespectful than the Whitehaven fans verbally abusing the police at the train station on the way home?
  2. Clutching at straws now marra. Next you'll be telling me he was kissing it too!
  3. Was the laal 23 i think it was a new player? He looks handy with good kicks today. Thought you were fairly wooden today, which is bound to change but you are only a fortnight off the first game so you had better get a better mentality than you had today. Will Newts be in your 17 every week? Listen marra, you are on a Town forum so getting your back up over some posts ain't gonna get you anywhere. We are relegation favourites with probably the lowest budget in the league by a mile. Everyone is telling us about how we are getting mullered every week. So to see a lot of young lads play for their shirt and compete like they did regardless of whether it is a pre season game or not is good to see. We were expecting big things from the Haven super squad but some of your players looked a mile off for the start of the season. Some did look handy too but I don't think I can remember a line break. Was there? If we hadn't scored at the end I think Chris would still have been the happier of the two coaches.
  4. The pedantic ref tried to spoil the game as a spectacle. But despite being down to 12 for a quarter of the game the lads dug deep and got their rewards. Enjoyed the game with all the new lads showing up well, particularly Walker who deserved his mom. Although rusty we look good down the spine with good options. I think we wanted it more in the end, and I'd be disappointed with some of my team if I'd come from the Jam to watch them after Jonty was blabbering on about respecting the Ike. Tom walker played well, as did their 23 & 30 both the props are big units who ran it in well and got them rolling a couple of times. I laughed at Brui being called Elton John by the popular side, thats some haircut But what's happened to Callum? He was a shadow of the player he once was. Didn't look interested considering who he was playing against. Thought we looked fitter and defended very well considering our squad is so inferior to the Haven superstars. Our lads showed a real desire which was good to see and its great to have it back again UTT!
  5. Good luck lads, even though its a friendly I've still got butterflies. UTT!
  6. Well £2 gate aside its gonna be a good game for the first Eh Classico of the season. I cant wait! During the week the Haven fans were saying Jonty had rang Chris asking for a 17 man squad as he was low on numbers and didn't want to play folk who weren't ready, but Chris knocked him back as its a pre season. So jonty is now saying its to respect the Ike game - bit sly getting a dig in over that if true imo. But the lads midweek were also saying Nikau was a no show and wouldn't be coming so maybe its duff info!
  7. Let's hope he has the key to open defences then! ......... I'll get my coat.
  8. I'm not going to pretend that no matter where they are from a bit of stardust is a bad thing, but all Aussies aren't superstars. We have had some belters but also some duck eggs. Fingers crossed you don't get any duck eggs eh!
  9. Hedging your bets after writing us off there marra. We will be underdogs in every game we play this season and probably rightly so. But because we have young lads with Cumbrian postcodes instead of Australian ones will do for me every day of the week. I'll stick by my original prediction.
  10. Looking forward to Sunday as much as you can with a derby against the Jam, with a run out under our belts, home advantage and a dry forecast I'm going for a 26-18 win for us. UTT!
  11. Commentators haven't even heard of Ellenborough, real rugby league fans....
  12. Alex Gerrard & Ryan Hampshire are still without a club, I'm sure they will come cheap too. Just saying.............
  13. Well they get a nosebleed if they travel up the A595, especially for friendlies!
  14. Merry Christmas everybody, even jameaters! I'll never forget our play off final, let's hope 2022 holds more good memories. But more importantly I hope everyone stays safe and we can find some way of putting this virus to bed in 2022. All the best everyone and UP THE TOWN!
  15. Yeah good to get the info formally. Thanks to Leso for all the time and effort he put in, and let's face it the club is in a better place than when he took over. A true heart on his sleeve fan, who you could see was living the dream on the pitch after the Donny match. He was exhausted and maybe a laal bit drunk, but a very happy man when I was speaking to him later on. Thanks for everything Les. There are lots of folk on here who know how to run a club better than it is so I'm guessing there will be an avalanche of offers......
  16. I have absolutely no issues with bringing these young lads in, just because players have an aussie accent doesn't make them any better. In the past we have spent a lot of money on some real duck eggs. (I know we have also had some real gems too before someone points it out) If these young lads have the right attitude they will do for me. Give them some experience and they will pay you back in spades. If we can add a bit of muscle in the middles then I'm confident Chris will get the best out of them and surprise a few. I'm in no doubt we will be big favourites for relegation, but I never thought we would get promoted before the start of last season. Haven & Barrow have different strategies and obviously bigger budgets, let them crack on. My big worries are building for the chairman & the main shirt sponsor. Big revenue lost for the Xmas present sales of home shirts. Let's hope it's resolved quickly as I thought the shareholders meeting would result in the announcements. I know they will be sworn to secrecy but can any of the shareholders confirm if it was talked about or should we worry?
  17. Should be 2 good lads that can immediately improve our first team. Fingers crossed Dave is back better than ever.
  18. Oh the irony of you calling others a clown and it's lying by the way....
  19. Rodders, are you the same rodders on haven fans forum? Is the 2010 a clue thats you are on here to make mischief?
  20. As I remember and feel free anyone to put me right, Town fans got wind of Newcastle being interested in one of our players and issued a few hands off our Mick messages to them. Newcastle hadn't been after Mick but changed their minds after seeing the stir it caused and signed him.
  21. You are either on the wind up and trying to stoke the fire for a reaction, or you genuinely have an unreasonable expectation of the club. What information exactly do you think Graeme and the club should have made public already? Why is the club in a bad place? Why are the fans that have more patience than you delusional? If the league was to start in a two weeks I wouldn't be happy with the squad but its not, its two months. As for the info, I am happy up to press as I'm sure it will be shared when the time is right.
  22. I understand some of you want all the squad, shirts, chairman etc done and dusted, and I suppose in a perfect world so would us all, including Chris. Being critical of the club is a bit premature though isn't it? Although I'm making some of this up maybe because our chairman is stepping down, we were the last to know what league we were playing in, and because our directors are part time volunteers, we are a bit behind ideally we would like to be. But what if the home kit hasn't been announced because the main sponsor is linked to who will be the new chairman and they are bringing the sponsorship with them or they want to wait until sufficient replica shirts are available in stock to buy? What if some player targets have been missed out on so others are being spoken to, or others are in place as loan deals which we can't announce yet? What if the club were say we were looking to sign a player and this alerted other clubs closer to where the player lived and we lost him because they made him an offer? Remember what happened to Mick Jenkins? If we get to a fortnight from the start of the season and we are still no further on then the club deserves some criticism but I'd be surprised if the next fortnight doesn't see things become sorted. UTT.
  23. What if we have some season long loans from SL clubs agreed in principle, but as they aren't our players we can't announce it and they aren't training up here yet, or we are bringing in somebody from abroad and are waiting for paperwork? I don't know this to be true but things may not be as straightforward as some want. I would be surprised if Chris doesn't have his ducks lining up as he wants them. I seem to remember back to some people panicking last year. But who knows...
  24. Great to have Matty back on board for the next 2 years, especially as the only one with his own song town2018 you are on a wind up aren't you?
