Re: Best Darlo goals you’ve seen live

A 5-0 home win against Chester in about 68. Ken Hale hit a screamer from about 5 yards inside Chesters half towards the South End that looked a worldie, only to be outdone a few minutes later when Pev hit 1 from the same area, (slightly right of centre), but from about 5 yards inside OUR half. Unbel...

Re: Anonymous letter in the Echo.

By the time we left the cricket club were doing everything they could to obstruct the football club. Even going to the lengths of locking the gates the evening a concert had been arranged in the East stand. I'm pretty sure this was Sean Lock - I had my eye on this gig but didn't go. I seem to remem...

Re: Anonymous letter in the Echo.

The bigger issue was how Feethams was sold to a housing developer. If it remained, it is without doubt we would have been back to our proper home. No, we really would not.

Re: Darlo’s worst XI

By no means the worst we have ever had, but by far the biggest disappointment in my eyes was Nick Pickering.
An England international with tons of top level experience I was expecting a lot more than the very average player we witnessed.

Re: Rugby League

Coote and Lewis were back today and what a difference. A very easy win with a false scoreline as Salford ran in 10 points at the death when we were in the showers. It may have been harder had they not been so indisciplined. 1 player binned was only just back on the pitch when a second went for a res...

Re: New stadium funding

I think Spyman makes an important point. Given we want council support on this, you would have to think we need to demonstrate return on investment for them. People driving to the ground then driving home again afterwards only benefits the football club. If we are going to try and sell that we are ...

Re: Retained list

That would be a great signing for central midfield, something different to Moke, Rose. I think Lowe's based in Wigan and obviously he's been on a full-time deal at Shields. The player that the Shields fans seem most disappointed to see released is Danny Rose's brother Mitch. Sounds quite versatile ...

Re: Rugby League

You'll struggle to get a decent replacement for Tony Smith, especially if your CEO is pulling all the strings. Do you think Tony Smith will look for another job in RL or do you think he'll retire? He has said he has loved being at KR and it has really "reinvigorated" him. He also loves the city. I ...

If you take any sides top 5 or 6 players out of their side and they won't look anywhere near as good. Hopefully Hull KR will become stronger and take that next step. Any idea who will be replacing Tony Smith? The wrong man is leaving. This is the first time since he took the club over the club I ha...

Re: Rugby League

And so it proved, a pretty one sided game. The Wigan game was a thriller and we just got over the line. As I've said before Hull KR have a strong starting 13, but when they lose key players the replacements are not so strong. I'd expect Wigan to start as strong favorites to win the final. An amazin...

Re: Rugby League

Massive games today in the Challenge Cup semi finals. I was hoping to go to Headingley, but unfortunately I have to work all day. I'll watch the games as live later on today. There is the prospect of a Wigan v Hull KR final. Sadly our injury situation makes us very much second-favourites v Udders.
