  1. I wouldn't be too sure about that. Being a most unpleasant restaurant critic there can't be much body waste Winner hasn't ingested.
  2. Me a media type or a public employee ? I've been a hairy arsed trucker all my life(a long time). I am now at my leisure being kept in luxury by the hard working(have you noticed that these days you can't just be working you have to be prefixed by *hard*?)taxpayer. You won't believe it but quite a few truckers can string a few words together and also read a broadsheet newspaper.
  3. I beg to differ Gary...Huddersfield were only allowed to play to their best on the night because of the Wire tackling and general effort put in. They are a one trick pony by their spoiling tactics around the ruck...grabbing arms,gang tackling and lying on in the tackle...When referee Ganson made it plain he was having none of it by whistling up frequently in the first few minutes they were screwed. They are second only to the Pie Eaters in these spoiling tactics...The Wigan coach is leaving these shores, perhaps he should take the Huddersfield coach with him for the greater good of the game...Thank goodness the Wire coach won't have anything to do with these negative tactics. I can remember reading in the press during the last close season that a directive was being issued to referees to clamp down on this boring negative stuff but last night was the first time I'd noticed it being applied. Better late than never Mr Ganson. Perhaps refrees will get on the Wigan case ASAP. As a footnote I was humbled by some Huddersfield fans last night displaying a congratulatory banner for the Wire praising us for this season. It must have took took time and effort to make it and was nothing less than magnificent.I think the Wire club should show some appreciation in an official manner. How about,say, a thousand free tickets for the Huddersfield fixture at the HJ whenever we meet them next.
  4. I wouldn't have the Daily Mail hanging up on the back of the door of the outside privy of my hovel...My only knowledge of the Daily Mail is what I read in the headlines on the stand at the local newsagent.My media indulgence is a couple of hours every day with the Guardian which to most of the posters on here is considered to be an agent of the Devil.
  5. From what I'm led to believe the South Stand doesn't have the depth in the structure to make it possible to build boxes.
  6. I should think so too...My missus hits me harder than that on a regular basis.
  7. The only thing I can think of as to why Wire aren't more represented in this dream team is that whoever makes the choices wanted to spread it around amongst as many clubs as possible.
  8. Carmont over Atkins ? Give us a break. Steve Menzies ? He's almost 40 years old !!
  9. I'm older than dirt..I won't say how old but I used to get Brian Bevan's autograph on my programme at every home game at Wilderspool.
  10. I for one will be glad to see the back of Maguire...He was rapidly turning the game into the most boring sport on earth with his cheating, negative tactics. Tony Smith made very thinly disguised comments about the man on GMR a couple of weeks ago. He didn't refer to him by name but we all knew who he was on about....Wire have proved it's possible to succeeed by playing fast open football...I'm pleasantly surprised that on another forum rival fans have been posting the most positive comments about the way Wire play the game. It seems we are now everybody's second favourite team.
  11. Champions !! I'll never accept that anybody who finishes top of the pile aren't champions..Imagine what Fergie's reaction would be if Man U finished top and then were told the had to win a knock out tournament which by some fluke Aston Villa won and Aston Villa were then declared champions..The air would be blue and quite right too. Against my better judgement I watched RL extra on the red button and to be honest I wasn't surprised at the reaction of one Phil Clarke...*Ah but would Warrington Wolves be able to handle the pressure of the play-offs?* This man would rather eat dirt than give Wire any credit...How does he think that Wire finished top of the pile without handling pressure ? The man's a complete dolt who, if it isn't Wigan it isn't worth a carrot...He is added to my list of heads I would enjoy stamping on. Metaphorically speaking of course.
  12. Ever heard the term *scapegoat?* If you did a little research outside of the pages of the Daily Mail you'd know that his conviction was becoming increasingly untenable...Evidence was kept from the defence at his original trial and his forthcoming appeal was certain to succeed..Not my opinion but the opinion of the legal officials involved. He had to be let go to save the Scottish establishment from serious embarrassment.
  13. The chap you are wishing a long slow painful death is almost certainly innocent of the Lockerbie bombing. The only useful purpose he served by being locked up all these years is by being a focus for the victim's families hatred.
  14. He'll be a hard act to replace when he eventually goes home. He's been a revelation since the coach told him he was to play hooker. As a halfback he was hopeless but as hooker he's the best in the country.If he doesn't get Man Of Steel this season I'll eat another pair of my socks.
