At a guess we're playing at Belle Vue next year, there'll be a back up plan but the club don't appear to want to leave to me if avoidable. The commercial loss on matchdays would be a killer.






What would a Cockney know about rugby league?

I took that to mean that he says a redeveloped Belle Vue as the most viable option in terms of time, as he said that the RFL could pull the plug at any time.


Cheers Slugger, sounds just like our council.... incompetent, useless and plenty of other words I would like to use... :DEPRESSED:

It was a good show but you could tell MC was very frustrated (understandably) with the whole stadium issue. Pulled up short and didn't finish his sentence a couple of times when he was probably thinking "no I'd better not"

Thought Mc said months back that the community stadium would get an all singing all dancing pitch

I know it's off topic but I saw a tweet from Allums Butchers today asking for help for traders in the city along with a picture of their desolate street, they offer a very sensible suggestion of a first 30 minutes of free parking.
Shame on the current leaders(I use this term loosely)of Wakefield Council for what our once great city has now become.
A £10million market hall that the traders were opposing in advance saying it would become a white elephant now being demolished for the princely sum of £3million.
If I call into Wakefield on a weekday on my own I actually don't feel safe anymore. Particularly when walking past the Cathedral and along the streets down towards Wilkos.

Don't get me started on the stadium debacle :FRUSRATED:

I seem to recall that the council had the Market Hall built for free by whoever did Trinity Walk.

The bottom of Kirkgate is a real dump.

Edit: Going way off topic here sorry but what's with the increase of beggers in Wakefield? Has a hostel or shelter been opened up recently...I noticed the Graizers has been turned it some time of dwelling but with steal shutters closing the doors off.

It's the same in all cities, have you walked round Leeds or Manchester lately? Care in the community eh?

There were loads in Hull last night. Every time we made a tackle they were begging for a penalty.

:lol:

Mind you, when it comes to begging for penalties, Huddersfield are way in front of the rest.
They literally wanted a penalty on every play, regardless of which side had the ball.

Also had to smile at Radfords comments about a second half penalty count in our favour in the second half but, he didnt seem to remember how many Hull had in the first half, along with the Jowitt sin bin.

I heard that
I also heard him slagging his own players off
Picking and naming individual players performances and mistakes

Shocking management

I've come to dislike Radford over the last few years
He was a grub when he played but is much worse now

Good managers should always congratulate the other team win or lose,
I have never once heard him do this, only say how bad his team was
He needs to look up magnanimous up in the dictionary
