That's has maybe, but the point is SL club's have that funding income until the next contract, do you honestly believe that they will reduce it by their own fruition?

No, my point as I already mentioned that come next contract 4 might say "Product is good but we don´t want loop fixtures and we want bigger markets to have more chance to get in. So it´s 14 or no more games."  If I am 4, 14 with big tv markets like York , Newcastle and London likely to get in makes it more worthwhile.

Was I watching the same match? Mellor was our best player apart from MacDonald. Not just me, listen to the commentators constantly praising him during the match.

Do you honestly believe he has or has ever had the qualities to run a game and influence the manner in which a team plays, I don't, and that is what we so desperately require to get the best out of the player's we have.

Those torchlight’s were wasted doing that when they could’ve helped with lighting up the pitch.

If everyone who had a mobile phone used their torchlight on them pointing towards the pitch, that would have been the end of all the lighting problems. 

Been talk about upgrading the lights and I hope it's not just talk because they are poor especially in the corners, and IF we do get to SL they will definitely have to be upgraded but in Mark Campbell we trust.

They are good enough for now, if and when get to SL I´m sure that the sensible owners will use the money for infrastructure. Maybe they can sort out that pitch too.

Can't imagine there is no other option than the back changing rooms.....I am sure Fev might realise that they aren't nice and are in no hurry to change

People on here have no idea of what rules and regulations the RL and government tell clubs what to do with Stadium's. Even had to make sure the football markings were gone from Saturday,  shame they didn't visit Yorks   ground last week, they were shocking.

I can't understand why we aren't using the turnstiles to go in,they are lit up so why not ?

Not sure I would even see what the reasoning is anyway? Are the other dressing rooms too close together Covd wise?

Most pitches were like that in Winter rugby and to all intents and purposes it still is Winter rugby so they are going to cut up especially with the deludge we had before ko. Wakefield afc doesn't help playing on it.

Think my forecast was Fev by 16 so not overly depressed. The Fev club did a good job on us last night - had to walk all around the ground to get to our end after trying normal gates without notice prior was the start, team put in a disgraceful dressing room opposite the side I have only ever seen teams enter from(that they had to hose before using I was told?), walked out with the Fev bad boys above them throwing all sorts and not a steward in sight, completely out coached on the pitch and showed up our issues at 9/6/props, our overseas looked like they had arrived at hell.

We are desperate for Ipape to land and am grateful we dont have the mudbaths at Batley and Fax in the next weeks.

Better team won easily but it will be very different later on.

Pint of bitter to go with your sour grapes?  When you re-read this when you're over the result, I'm sure you'll shake your head.  Sounds like 'boo-hoo, it's not fair' to me.  Although I agree, it will be very different later on, we'll put even more past you.

If there is one big plus on not owning the stadium it is the care and attention that stadium gets from the owners, the LSV for example gets ripped up every June and the infrastructure and turf gets relayed, I can't say I have ever seen it cut up or seen any mud on it in the 12 years it has been open, obviously also being the Home of Man U women's team and Man U Under 23's play a number of fixtures there the rent they must pay will go a long way towards the costs of keeping it in tip top condition.

3G it if you get promoted. Use the cash for infrastructure, don´t make Bulls mistake.

I do wonder why we've ended up with Smith , basically I could do what he does 

I think most Saints fans would agree the jury is still out on Smith, personally I can't see him coming back to Saints. They've already promoted Taylor Pemberton to the 1st team squad as the 3rd hooker for this year and next season with Roby retired the first choice 9 is going to be Lussick.

Can't ever fault Smith for effort but he just doesn't seem to have anything 'x factor' about him that you need as a top class 9 these days.

I sincerely hope not. Much prefer grass and although the pitch cut up badly on Monday, it was hardly surprising considering the deluge it had to put up with, and it will recover.
