(O/T, I had better put O/T here, Clint Hill has forged a decent career for himself since his early days at Tranmere fifteen years ago.)
Quote:Great in theory, but how many refs actually see the ball being grounded with downward pressure when they are behind the player scoring?...an official can only give what he or she actually sees not what he or she thinks might have happened.
Meamwhile - back on topic:
Neil Leigh has an article about Tom Brady in today's MEN. Near the end he states:
"Negotiations over a proposed move to the £26m City of Salford Stadium (is this the official name now? (my comment)) are now understood to be at an advanced stage"
"Meanwhile, Sale's ambitious bid to recruit England fly-half Danny Cipriani from the Melbourne Rebels is still on track."
Neil Leigh is further 'in the loop' than most of us, so it seems likely that both will be announced with fanfares shortly.
I think that downward pressure used to apply in Union too, and the law was altered slightly a few years back.
Quote:However, Stadium Manager, Pam, confirmed that plans were in place to build a taxi rank for Salford black cabs at Salford City Stadium. She said: “Salford black cabs have access to the ground and a new taxi rank will be opened right outside the reception of the stadium in the near future.”
"No doubt the Manchester Ship Canal is far enough from the sea to be soleless." Mrs. T., I had a dab at a fish pun too, but couldn't come up with anything.
You mean you were [i]floundering[i] Dave ?
From a lofty [i]perch[i] on Barton Bridge you must have seen that one coming !!!
What Pam didn't explain is that 'Corpulants' using Salford Black Cabs will have to queue with the rest of the traffic on the M60, the J11 slip road, the J11 roundabout, Liverpool Rd and the Stadium access road! Unless they arrive via the A57 in which case I hope they bring a flask of coffee and sandwiches. Not much the Stadium Manager can do about that!
Is this the longest thred ever?
Quote:Been wondering that myself recently.SandDancerShark
Could it be that SS only move to Barton whilst EP is revamped?
I'm wondering why in late March "He is looking for feedback with regard to the very real concerns about possible transport, parking, seating arrangements, day and KO time etc. should we move to the new stadium at Barton."
I thought that was obvious, DA. SS has clearly joined the Co-op movement and they are now using the slogan "The caring, sharing Sharks".
Our opinions matter!
