Spanish Club For 2021 ?

Recommended Posts

League Weekly report that there is a consortium from Valencia enquiring about admitting  ,Los Huracanes' to the British game.

An obvious coach for this new set-up would be Bernard , after his skilful handling of Tommy the Toreador's career .

Bernard is yet to comment on the appointment .

I've no idea about the merits or otherwise of a Valencia team, but I thought there was a thriving Valencia community league with 7ish clubs. The Espana League site has a number of club logos for community clubs, but you never know whether the information is up to date/accurate. Anyone the wiser?

Well there will be no more little white bulls at Odsal next season.

Or he could try and dig a hole in the ground to jump into .... one that's sort of big and sort of round !

How about getting the english game sorted out first.

Cas ground,Wakefield ground,Salford attendances,Huddersfield attendances,just for starters.

How do you propose “we” do that?

Give Bernard a chance....he can only dig one hole at a time !

And he already got a good attendance ... well, a chap in a bowler hat is watching him at least ! !

Why does the state of The Jungle or Salford’s declining attendances have anything to do with someone wanting to set up a team in Spain? The fact is it sounds like there are people who want to give it a go and we should support that.

It's quite interesting that over the past 6 hours or so, most posters have sought to avoid the topic. The same deflection tactics occured with the  'next expansion team' thread, before the moderator intervened.  I would have thought that those who find the topic of expansion uncomfortable either engage or avoid the thread.

In the meantime, I would be interested to note the state of RL in Valencia - as posted earlier,  there arec indications of about seven clubs, which would be impressive. I, personally, have no real view on Valencia as a credible bid;  hence I would like to be better informed.

A club an hour away from Benidorm. We’ve peaked as a sport. It’s not going to get better than this. 

Those of us who visited Vincent's bar in Benidorm all the years ago will never forget our experience's there.

Surely that is all down to the respective clubs.

Searching Google I found an article in 2015 saying that at that time three new teams in the Valencia region were being formed to boost the total number of teams there to ten
