  1. A good listen and very interesting too, Rick Holden always was a character.
  2. Ran really well and would have won easier without the uncharacteristic mistake at the second last.
  3. 14-10 Rouge Vif (E/W 14/1) - Travelled and jumped so well at Warwick last time before beating a decent opponent easily, I've got to back him today, could be a very decent chaser in the making. 14-50 The Conditional (7/1) - Ran in the Classic Chase at Warwick last time over 3m 5f, nothing was going better on the home turn but he failed to stay and didn't get home, back to 3m 1f today, he'll do for me. 15-30 Pentland Hills (6/1) - I'm a firm believer in following festival form, he won the Triumph hurdle last year, in what doesn't look like a vintage renewal of the Champion Hurdle his previous festival form will stand him in good stead. He should have won last time out at Haydock (he was travelling all over his opponents at the last) but probably hit the front too soon and got worried out of it close home. He should go well. 16-50 Imperial Aura (5/1) - Don't know much about this one myself, but has been tipped as his best bet of the day by Paul Kealy in the Racing Post (who i consider to be a very good judge). Singles and an Each Way Yankee.
  4. That's a very healthy crowd and double the grounds capacity. 😃
  5. FFS, I suppose I'm concentrating on the League now.
  6. TBH I thought my all Premiership clash with Milnrow Latics would be the televised game.
  7. You'd need to be under 5ft in height for that to be the case.
  8. I'm not so sure, there's no way the clubs been able to afford a laminater.
  9. Bloody hell, another away draw, I just can't catch a break.🤞
  10. I agree with the majority of your comments. Definitely need a new manager, Dino has done nothing to make me think he is the man to take us forward. Try to get Piergianni permanent (seems surplus to requirements at Salford), he has really impressed me since his arrival. Smith would be great, but I doubt we could get him for nowt, so that might be a none starter. Dearnley was certainly looking good prior to his injury so I would keep him. Wheater, I'd keep to play alongside Piergianni in the centre of defence. Rowe has looked a definite improvement on what we already have up front since he arrived. McCann, I would keep. Maouche, Missilou, Nepo and Sylla are all very capable at League 2 level, but I'm not convinced they are good enough between them to have us challenging for promotion. I would be looking for improvements if they can be found probably via loans. We certainly need to keep the better players in the current squad, but need significant improvements on the poorer players in order to sustain a promotion challenge. Most of all I'd take a new owner who has some money and the best interests of the club at heart, and is mentally stable.
