Mark aston always manages to assemble a decent team at sheffield, but from last sunday i can clearly see a lot of tactical improvement with widnes

Id say widnes by 10-14

This one has an Eagles win written all over it. They play some good stuff and can win this comfortably should Widnes fail to turn up (as Haven did last week).

They're making the Widnes fans do some travelling , Newcastle , now Sheffield , but we'll get to see the new Sheffield stadium 🤔

Having travelled to Barrow, Workington and Whitehaven in the first 50 days of the season, I'm sure there'll be a few Sheffield fans chuckling at this one.

"Oh dear. How sad. Never mind."

I suspect he means Monday night games when you could also chuck in Dewsbury. 

Strange thing about this league is Widnes only have one club within 50 miles of them and the average trek one way is 100 miles.

With regards to the game I'd have preferred someone else to have the honour of opening the new stadium.

Sheffield will be well up for it and Widnes can be pretty accommodating when it comes to not being party poopers.

I'm hoping for the best but preparing for the worst.

Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.

Saw an article about a reduced capacity, does anyone know what the capacity is and how much of it will be given to away fans?

Capacity is 700, Widnes have 100 tickets.

Really disappointing that the crowd restrictions have been announced so late. I know people who had taken the day off work, but who now won't be able to get a ticket.

800 according to this, increasing to 1320 at the end of June and at that until there is further development

If there is no safety certificate, then it should have been played somewhere else.

A lack of communication

Come down to League 1, 100 miles round trip would be sheer luxury 🤣 🤣 🤣

 

In fact, if we come up or you come down, Widnes would be our local derby!!!

cru....Cru.....CRUSADERS!!!!!!

Welcome to our world.  As a North Wales Crusaders fan I've travelled to all 3 Cumbiran Clubs, London Skolars, Newcastle and Llanelli in one season!! Thankfully shorter trips this year

I think you've slightly misunderstood me.

I wasn't moaning about travel distances, just that as a heartland club with nearly a quarter of the other professional clubs within 35 miles then average round trips of 200 miles would seem unusual.

As for next season, if we do meet up it's quite possible you'll be within a couple of miles of being our local derby, Halifax excepted.

 

Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.

Shambles. But keeps on being accepted in RL

You mean because the Councils Safety Advisory Group, have requested that the game be played under reduced capacity... 

 

Nothing the Eagles can do to overturn it, as the SAG have the final say.... At least we have our own stadium... And it will be rocking on Monday no matter the amount of fans... 

I do think some on here would love to see the end to the MIghty Eagles, and how many other teams would have survived 9 years on the road,, ill tell you now, 1 or 2....

 

 

Any way it will be an awesome game of RL in Sheffield and on Premier Sports...

An important point here is that for the first time I can remember (and I go back with the Eagles to 1996) they will actually keep the profit from the concession sales. It may not be their ground but at least they have more control and more income.

Yes. Reducing the capacity the week before a game is a shambles.
