And have all 3 shrieking eagles chanters even louder in my lughole? No thanks.

 

Ah - it was your choice then. Rather than a lack of seats.

"We'll sell you a seat .... but you'll only need the edge of it!"

 I can see your intention Rover, you are trying to do the Mohamed Ali "Rope a dope" by luring us Leythers into a false sense of security!

If this is a rope-a-dope, it will enter sporting history as the most convincing ever.  You're light years ahead, only one winner come 2nd Oct.

Can't believe I've just paid £18 to stand pitch-side like it was an amateur game.

I said the same when we went earlier in the year.  All the fanfare when Sheff were back in their new 'stadium'. 

Its a stand with 3 blocks and new tea hut / toilet block. 

I dont know if and when there is any plan to bring it up to anything to resemble a stadium.  I hope there is as it wouldnt take much.

Yeah, have to say I was underwhelmed given the hype.  The stand is pretty tiny, about 10 rows over 3 blocks.  Seems more like an office block with a few seats tacked on.

Hopefully they can get some proper terracing on the far side, that would be a massive improvement.

There's planning approved for the full (3900 capacity) stadium development but no one to fund it since McCabe fell out with SUFC.

The stand is an office block/conference centre with some seats (780ish) bolted on the side. The ground is first and foremost a community sports facility not the home of the Eagles, who have a 5 year agreement to play there.

Knights win 24 . 18

It was an important win.

As a Batley fan we have to win tomorrow or else I think we will finish 6th, with regard to the remaining fixtures.

At the end of the day that would still be a great achievement but a little disappointing nevertheless, though it isn't really.

How do you feel about your season?

Our season has been poor, we just don't seem to be able put in a performance for 80 minutes, we play in Fits and starts, it's there but they are not doing it.
