Re: Diego Maradona

I remain convinced that, good as the second goal looks, had their minds not been scrambled by what happened just a couple of minutes earlier he would not have got as far as the box because someone would have made sure he hit the deck before getting that far. I suspect that Old Git's view would be t...

Re: Diego Maradona

How did I know that I would be dragged into this somehow as the argument took an argumentative turn? As to Maradona I did not like him. Not for scoring that goal but for the fact he gloated about it for years rather than just either ignore it or hold his hand up at the time. I remain convinced that,...

Re: Rugby League

Now that lived upto a classic Grand Final, happy Saints won and like comeondarlo have a definite dislike for Hardaker, as a Tigers fan he let us down so badly with his behavior then pissed off to Wigan never really apologised to Cas fans. DP why Toulouse? I would rather see a traditional team like ...

Re: Rugby League

If they are starting next season a month later & the Grand Final isn't being moved, how are they going to get these extra games played, unless they play some of them midweek? Playing less games Pete. There are no loop games and what was meant to be top 8 is top 6 as this year. That means the bottom...

Re: Rugby League

During the Grand Final the commentator said that he expects teams to return to training at the start of January, not much of a break for the players. When is the decision being made about who is replacing Toronto in the SL? Hope it goes to Toulouse. It is not really a long enough of a break to re-m...

Re: Rugby League

Yes it was a great final, can't believe it finished that way. Gutted. I was going to come on last night and comment but I wanted to see what you had to say. I bet if Wigwam had won it would have been a lot more than 13 words ! Have to say as someone who has no love for either club that has to be in...

Funny how in both semi-finals the losing team scored a penalty first & then were thumped, although Catalan self destructed with their indiscipline. So who do you think will win on Friday?
By default and because of my intense dislike of Wigwam !!!

Re: Rugby League

If there is any doubt, then they should refer it to the TV ref. I agree one of the try's did have a forward pass in the build up. Thought that tackle by French to stop Hull scoring when Wigan were already safe was exceptional. Wonder who will win tonight, heart says Catalan, my head says St. Helens...

Re: Rugby League

Was he injured our in oz or was he just not fancied to play? At 32 he'll almost certainly be past his best especially as he is a winger, where you need to keep your pace to remain competitive & effective. Time will tell if he is a great signing or not. No the management simply did not fancy him. Th...

Re: Rugby League

We have today signed Ryan Hall.
His time in Aus did not go too well, but at the point he left not many UK clubs would have said "no thanks" to signing him.
32 years old so hopefully has the 2 years left in his legs that we have signed him for.

Hands up if you fancy paying for a Quaker TV filmed Darlogramps/Edjohns televised debate to raise money for our club? No thanks :thumbdown: Get the pot up to £500 for the club and I will happily prove the troll wrong to benefit the club. No need for him to be there. He can stay cowering in his hovel.
