Recommended Posts

Talks between the two clubs have been in progress about Wakefield moving in.Think something similar happened this time last year,wonder if it could happen this time.

The article is in this week's League Express, think the ground share would be just for the 2017 season.

Would mean sorting out the terracing behind the posts IF it happened.

I don't think they would move here, last time they used us as a bargaining chip to lower the rent. They will need to move at some point but not yet.

We've already got terracing behind the posts.

I've noticed that something's happening behind the fence at the other end of the ground.

The work done there will be the new car park that is being done,terracing would need to be in place at that end of the ground though.

In his programme notes MS said that the ball was firmly in Wakefield's court. Until they decided what they were going to do we would simply wait and see, even if the temporary income boost would be welcomed. I don't believe that anything is yet "nailed on" but wait to be proved wrong.

while b v is being rebuilt

 

 

Hmm, using the stacks of money that they don't have, no doubt. I suspect that, if they do come, we may have to get used to their presence for a while longer than predicted.

I wonder if the playing surface will look like Batley's did when we were playing at their place.

Remember that anyone?

There was a subtle difference though, as I'm sure you know.

The current hope for Wakey fans is that Yorkcourt will fund the refurb of Belle vue but as they managed to get out of building the new stadium it's a long shot. Wakefield council don't want to help , they let YC slide on the s106 so they are up against it. If they move in with us , and I'm not sure they will as I think the stadium is too small for SL , then it could be a long slow decline for them.

Was it we weren't preparing our pitch for Super League in those days?

why do you always need to fetch Batley into your comments, imo of course it must be a jealousy matter

Was a reasonable question by LR, Billy, if you cast your mind back.

 

If you don't like B*tley been mentioned in OUR forum then go back to your own!

BillyBulldog,

I wasn't having a pop at Batley at all. The point I was making was that when Dewsbury played at Mount Pleasant back in the 90's, the playing surface got so much useage on it that it turned into a quagmire.

The same thing could happen to ours is Wakey come to town.

And the seasons were very different LR, or have we all forgotten?
