Re: Season start delayed

Thanks, Morley, I will be more careful in future. Whoever and however and whatever, I hope we are now cautiously optimistic that we will be back where we belong sometime (relatively) soon. And what a team we will have... (oh and one last thing, a delayed season gives us longer to work on the wingers...

Re: Season start delayed

I am confused now, Morley. Somebody was in charge of procurement, and hers was the name I got when I googled. I could have mentioned the minister in charge, I suppose, but that would have taken us into politics! By the way, I think even the Guardian is only suggesting it was 670k rather than 670 mil...

Re: Season start delayed

I know it seems weird and I don’t want to stray into political territory, but how else can it be described? We chose to go alone and have ended up with far more doses of the world’s most valuable commodity far earlier than any other major western country. Kate Bingham on procurement and John Bell on...

Re: Season start delayed

I am not convinced that the start date will not be pushed back further. It will be interesting to see how the Club deal with expectations, especially if season ticket sales outnumber the number of fans allowed to attend games. There is a great article in one of the papers, crunching the numbers on ...

Re: Burgess

It is only indirectly relevant, but I saw an Article on the NRL site about Canterbury’s 17 for the opening week end. Which did not include Luke Thompson (though he was on a list of other squad members)... maybe just maybe there is some truth in the rumours about heading our way once we have settled ...

Re: Season start delayed

I think you misunderstand the science around vaccines and the point made about immunity. The picture is far better than it looks. For instance, people get spooked by variants, because they are asking someone whether there is any risk that the vaccine won’t work against it. To which the answer has to...

Re: Bid for the ground

Just a small point, and I am sure this isn’t what you meant., Wes. We didn’t make a mistake as a club - the club was owned by someone who decided that sharing a ground this size on this site was the way to go. DW may think that he made the right decision even now from his football loving perspective...

Re: Bid for the ground

It would be good to have a bigger ground than we normally if next season they allow crowds based on % of capacity.

Re: Bid for the ground

I assume we want IL to buy the ground, and, if not, to make sure we are protected. I don’t care what league they are in, from our perspective I simply want to see a change in the Latics’ contempt for us we have seen over the years.

Re: Wigan Warriors' support for George Burgess

Pedro, you may be right about the 80s and 90s (though I suspect people would have behaved differently if they knew they were at risk of being on FaceBook within seconds), and I may be unfairly characterising the Tomkins drinking incident. That said, we are where we are and the club could have taken ...
