I can only agree with the comments about Steve Diamond, and I am sure the rest of the management team contribute just as much. As a club they punch well above their weight, and really are a model of how a club can be run well and achieve some good results without having money to burn.

It is timely to compare that with Worcester, our latest opposition, who are quite the opposite. They have had a larger budget and the biggest squad in the Premiership, at 70 players it is twice the size of the Sale squad, yet they have achieved nothing. If Worcester do court a new backer, it should ideally be somebody able to bring the Sale style of management to their club rather than somebody with big bags of cash. It could do wonders for them.

Friday night will be my first away game for what seems like years, even though it was actually at the end of last season, and I can't wait.

Bring it on.

Yet another good assessment

I'd like to think that we would be going into this game thinking of what we will do to them rather than what they can do to us.

Josh Strauss will be looking at Wilson and Welsh and reminding himself that getting isolated = lost ball

Good preview Ff07. Diamond geezer? What irony! And yes most likely the scariest DoR in the AP. I'd hate to have been Tom Arscott explaining himself to the Diamond Geezer.
On a serious note though, I think we just need to stick to the good things we did against Worcester and remain patient. We have the personel to win.
We should've won last seasona and We need to do a job on them and make it 2 from 2 before we meet Sarries, as I'm not very hopeful of getting something there.

Great preview FF and can't argue with the team selection.

Thanks for the kind words guys. Hoping for a win. Going to be a right tough encounter though, although Sale where well beaten, they played some really good rugby through Addison, Haley and Klerk, their a fit side and will be difficult to defend.

It may be lashing down as well, will that favour a bigger sale pack and give them the advantage there?

It's near Manchester, it will be raining.

My family originated from Bolton, that's why we all have webbed feet.

Cracking write up - had a look on the Sale board and apart from Mrs. Trellis who is ignorant and ill-informed about our style of play they are very impressed as well

Sale fan here - Ignore him on our board, don't think he's watched you recently as I would suggest we're more route one atm than yourselves! looking forward to what should be a decent game with both sides giving it a go in attack, weather isn't looking good down here so who knows how it will be played. safe travels and bear in mind the main road outside of our ground has some pretty dreadful roadworks atm (we're finally getting a new bridge over the shop canal) so factor the extra traffic when getting in.

Cheers - maybe see a few of you in the south stand smiling smiley

Hi. For any of you guys planning to drive down to the game, suggest you have a look at this

[www.salesharks.com]

For those not familiar with the ground, if driving, you basically have to use the A57 to get to the ground. There is plenty of paid parking at the ground itself but to access it you can only use the A57 westbound from J11 of the M60. This is likely to be absolute carnage at 7.00 on a Friday night. Not particularly because of the game but due to traffic generally at this time, coupled with the roadworks. Best advice for you travelling from the NE is to come down the M6 and take the A57 East. Parking is then a 5 min walk away at Barton Aerodrome on the left as you approach the ground. You will also get away quicker at the end as the car park at the ground is held for 20minutes or more to allow pedestrians to disperse. When leaving the aerodrome, you should be fine to exit left and take the A57 west past the ground to the aforementioned J11 as traffic will be pretty light by then.

Hope you enjoy your visit, though not the final score!!
