Sten I don’t follow advice or instruction ever. Now same applies to yo if you don’t like what you read then don’t read it it’s not your thread and you are not in charge and you certainly did not throw me off any thread or alter or influence any thing I say or do. Now you have a nice Christmas and worry more about what you do or say Monty and I will and can look after ourselves.

No words to describe you two really. You must be a real joy to spend time with

Merry Christmas

Get what ur saying GK, we have it on the Waterloo thread. The only thing is...this is a thread for N1W & the last time I checked, I'm a member of a club in said division. So whilst reading the Rugby based chat, I can't avoid being distracted into yours & Monty's world of "he said, she said"...nobody is interested mate. If you've got his number, text him, & have your orangesging match. Then come on here & join the Rugby related conversation. Just a thought.

Carlisle v waterloo Saturday can loo turn them over?
It would narrow the gap with the chasing pack.
Need to get to grips with the carlisle scrum if you've got any chance.
Sorry to get back to rugby.

Not sure Loo have the game -but fair play for getting back to the point.

S'port in a good position to cement second slot this week but this league remains anyone's guess.

KPITS/BM, Loo are akin to the Duke of York & his men. When we are up we are scintillating, when we are down we are toothless, & unfortunately like the league position suggests, when we are only halfway up, we'll neither go up nor down.

I can see Broughton Park's recent resurgence in form may come to a shuddering halt this Saturday at Moss Farm. Tough place to go Northwich. 

All the best

Are Northwich the form team? After only winning one out the first six they've put an impressive six wins together beating carlisle at home plus douglas and penrith away, that's impressive.
Anyone from Northwich got an opinion?

I am not holding out much hope against Carlisle, but anyone can beat anyone in this league it seems, and I'm confident the lads will give it their all - what more can anyone ask for?

Stockport look almost nailed on for 5pts this weekend - De La will struggle for anymore points I think.
Anselmians will find Warrington a tough place to go, but you never know - Warrington with a couple of blips this season not having it easy
Birkenhead should have enough against Manc, but they ran Carlisle relatively close 
Blackburn Penrith is too tough to call for me
Fancy Douglas to keep the pressure on at the top against Burnage
Northwich are beatable, & Broughton are enjoying a great run so that's a tough one too

Sten we nearly agree !!! .
I feel the Burnage pitch holds a real advantage to the home team and wonder what Mike G thinks ?
We currently train on Chesters new 3G pitch and feel that's a world away from the Burnage surface . What life is left on this pitch are there plans afoot to re lay a new surface or is there plenty of life left in the existing one ?

Not so sure it has a distinct advantage anymore. Most clubs have access to train on 3 or 4G and so we lost the uncertainty element.
We certainly have felt it held an advantage in the past.
In the bitter winters we faced during our time in National 3, we trained on the pitch all winter and felt we derived a fitness advantage.

That said the superb backs turned out regularly by the likes of Billingham and Lymm loved the surface too. We certainly felt it helped us beat Chester and Sale when we were in the same league.
We hosted South Africa during the U20 Rugby World Cup in Manchester and they loved it.

The surface is still in fantastic condition. We've lavished care and attention on it (it hasn't cost any more than keeping a grass pitch in tip-top condition) and despite being 8 or 9 years old has just passed a rigorous and official test.

It's used by a few hundred local children almost every Saturday morning for soccer training. American Football on most Sunday afternoons. Schools use the pitch during the day and adult soccer teams on weekday evenings.
All of these activities obviously have to fit around rugby activities.

I'm told by our treasurer that we have a "war chest" ready to relay the carpet.


It's not just us anymore, Penrith have an RFU funded 4G pitch which is absolutely fabulous - I think the cost was 800K.

I'm not being funny but I think my argument with Goal Kicker is more entertaining than this stagnant thread . I have posted my weekend predictions and opened a debate on 3G surfaces and the potential benefits , where are the North 1 West posters ??

Leaving aside the predictions for which I am grateful I note that you asked Mike GC specific questions about the Burnage pitch which he answered comprehensively in his normal courteous fashion.If you really want to open a debate about such pitches then post it to the whole RM audience as I'm sure many have questions to ask and points to make.

As for your argument with GK I have to confess to being mystified about the subject so tbh I find it pretty turgid. Each to their own as they say but I suspect that most posters on this thread are as mystified as me ?
