If we were talking about soccer and someone asked which club was the most successful of the Premier League era you'd look up the number of titles won and say Man Utd. You wouldn't look up FA Cups or League Cups, UEFA Cups or Champions Leagues. It's titles. It's always about titles. That's what people mean.

Whatever pedantry you want to engage in to feel better about Saints is fine, but please don't make out that you're doing anything other than reaching here.


The definition of "era" is time span, in rugby league terms thats from 1996 to 2019, in terms of the premier league I think thats relevant for 1996 and 1997. I will leave it there and agree to disagree.
The new young dynasty of super saints is coming to a ground near you.

Well as a Saints fan I certainly wouldn't swap what Leeds have won for what we've won in the SL era simply because we've won more trophies overall and that's a fact. Trying to devalue the Challenge Cup suits their argument.

Perhaps that's down to their 'Golden Generation' taking until 2014 to finally win one?

Yes we've been a bit quiet on the silverware front over the last decade but we've still remained competitive and not had the embarrassment of middle 8s campaigns or the kind of relegation battle Leeds are having right now.

I'm not saying you're being disingenuous, but when you lost five in a row, four of them against us, you wouldn't swap any of your Challenge Cups or League Leaders Shields for one or two of those?

Also, I'm not devaluing the Challenge Cup. I think the Challenge Cup is awesome and winning it is great and should be celebrated. All I'm saying is that when you talk about 'the most successful side of X era' then as a rule you're talking about league titles. I think that's common across sport.

And yes, it's all a bit rubbish at the minute, but when you've enjoyed all those rainbows you might have to put up with a bit of rain. We'll be back. Eventually.

Leeds have won more SL titles than anyone. No arguments there. But when people say SL or Summer era they mean all trophies as far as I'm concerned rather just than SL titles.

Is any team in Superleague better off than last season, to try and close that 16pt gap at the top for St Helens. I can only see like Liverpool dominating in the Prem that St Helens will walk the leaders shield again.

Agree, unless there's a catastrophic run of injuries, cap breach or the like.

SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

It is funny, the Stainfellas appear, but the TRUE St Helens fans wait and watch. I am a big Liverpool fan, but we havent won the PL yet, St Helens is NOT part of Liverpool. An interesting season ahead, and I iwish the TRUE St Helens fans well, but Rommel is just a keyboard warrior who has found his way out of hibernation.
