Re: Sat 24 August 2019

Liverpool are playing Arsenal at Anfield with a 17.30 kick off. Darlington are away at Altrincham with a 15.00 kick off. I have a season ticket for Liverpool. Looks like my niece will be watching Arsenal whilst I go to Altrincham. You could always ask Liverpool to move the kick-off back 2 hours, I'...

Re: Finally an achievement in the FA Cup & Trophy

I know we nearly always fail in cup competitions and any money would be welcome, but is it only me that thinks it is strange for the FA to reward failure? Thing is Pete, in the qualifying rounds it is very feasible for a home team team to lose money from staging an FA Cup or Trophy match. Maybe not...

Stunning victory for London Broncos over St Helens, even if St Helens fielded a weakened team. It's going to be a real fight to avoid the drop. Weakened team?

Re: Halifax Friendly Now at Blackwell Meadows

Bascombe was to blame for the first goal with a sloppy pass, but I thought he looked better the longer the game went on and he had a good second half until he was substituted.

Have to say I missed the Motherwell game, so yesterday was my first chance to see the pitch. But after all the gloom and despondency in this thread I was expecting the pitch to look far worse yesterday. I know it's not perfect but it didn't look a mile off being ok and it didn't stop both sides play...

Great win for Wigan last night against a poor Wakefield side, but I guess you can only beat what is in front of you. Strange how Rob has stopped posting on this thread. Even when Wigan were bad, I still posted on here, perhaps Rob is a fair weather fan?

I'd heard that the pitch just needs a good shower on it and it'll play fine. Think it needs to be assessed in the upcoming friendlies before we start with all the accusations
There's plenty of rain forecast for tomorrow, which should help.

Can't imagine our pitch is better than theirs. Bit disappointed was looking forward to going down to Halifax for this game.
I trust you will overcome your disappointment and boost Darlo's coffers by venturing to Blackwell Meadows instead.
Yes already got the day off, so I'll be there.

What a farce the Hughie Fury fight was, terrible referee as Samuel Peters should have been thrown out well before the end of the fight. Amir Khan put in a good performance against limited opposition.

Yes like others have said very positive performance last night. Thought Holmes was excellent, but Trotman was outstanding and looked the best player on the pitch. Great to see him all smiles, he looks committed, Thought the Darlo fans turn out was excellent, around 150 made the trip.

Re: Rugby League

Bad result for Wigan but not unexpected against St Helens. Where is the game against Huddersfield home or away? if your at home then you should win, but if your away, then I fancy Huddersfield to come out on top.
