    Always puts a smile on my face when the commentators say "4 promotions in 5 seasons for Salford" Still the only team to stop them in their tracks since the money came in

    Possibly sportsmen & what are loosely classed as entertainer's would be better off not using their "status" as a political platform...…… they could use the pub like the rest of us

    Number 7 produced by the maverick Andy Weatherall who sadly passed away on Monday morning. A huge loss to the British music scene and mourned by people worldwide. RIP Andy Weatherall.

    Bane of my life when refereeing - dissent. I could tolerate someone making an "honest" attempt to tackle and getting it wrong, but once they started with the effing and jeffing they were making a donation to the WRCFA. When will players learn that it makes no difference after the decision has been made, it is rare for any referee to change his mind, if anything it will only reinforce the ref's resolve to standby the original call.

    I was over the moon to read that our super loanee striker from Salford j Dave, has won a Brit Award. I thought this must be a good omen and let's hope he can win at Wembley in the play offs for The Shaymen. Alas, it's not our Dave, it's another Dave. But, our Dave still has a chance to win at Wembley in the play offs and let's hope he can score again this Saturday. UTS and UTD

    One thing is for sure, we'll miss Duckworth for the rest of the season. Terrible loss for him and the club. He just doesn't seem to have any luck. I hope the lad that did him gets suspended and can't play in their next game. Dirty so and so

    Only tried one The Mahabarat round by Yates, decent but pricey but they all will be down South. Gurkha Inn sounds good too.

    can get a bus from adjacent to the Green Ginger which drops you by a small pub - can't remember name - bout 1/2 mile walk to the ground from there and is a decent social club just outside the ground to the left of main reception.

    Use Allen as impact player off the bench against tired legs on what I expect to be a heavyish pitch.

    Some bad mannered people at the brits like snatching the mike from the girls without a smile or thank you and don't mention that idiot Dave and just wish the mike which he lobbed on the piano had rolled off and smatched.

    My 12 string and my telecaster have them old style machine heads and it's an art making sure the string doesn't pop out when winding on. For that reason themy guitars are gathering dust and I'm solely using my Epiphone Nick Valensi and a cheap acoustic. I can't imagine the cold practising in a barn on the tops!! You must be mad.

    Got a guitar but never learnt to play it which I now regret but my next project is a concert of my favourite singers and bands live put into a concert which will keep me happy on my journeys to the Shay.

    Biggest ballache is changing strings. Forget that, it's guitar leads that tangle or don't work. For ten long years I used to lug all my gear to a barn on the hills above Todmorden for band practice. We couldn't leave our stuff there over the week as the horses would get at it. The wind eventually blew the roof off the barn and the band finished. It was a blessing.

    Yeah it's a real shame that this town doesn't have a music shop anymore. I used to buy my strings from guitarzone but now I face a trek over to Dawson's in Huddersfield or Leeds. Im useless at changing them too and I've got a 12-string electric laying dormant. (Revelation solid body 12-string) it's a brilliant budget guitar of its type based on a jazz master.

    I considered a guitar but I worried that I wouldn't be able to replace the broken strings. You can't even buy guitar strings in Halifax now that Guitar Zone has closed - never mind a desert island. Like my luxury item - the internet - would be reliable on a small island!

    Just reading this. Surprised I've not read it before. Very readable but before reading it I thought the old big head thing was tongue in cheek - not a bit of it!

    Breath of fresh air is the lad. People were comparing him to Darren Kelly when he came in. He’s more like Chris Wilder. Straight talking no nonsense, honest and realistic. This season has the potential to be special. Apart from the tough run in Nov/Dec when we had injuries and a tough set of games, we’ve been very good.

    Both Heath and JF refused to change their systems despite the awful runs and club position. BH got sacked and JF kept us up, then the following season Rodney came in and scored the goals that kept us in this league (whether Rodney was bought in by JF or by Mr B remains unanswered). PW altered his system when we signed Rodney and we have prospered since then and that's the difference. Without the Rodney signing PW could of carried on persevering with TSS in which case we would be well off the play offs by now and PWs job would be on the line. Learning and adapting is the key here.

    Wikipedia puts to bed an urban myth from the 90s about former Leeds goalkeeper John Lukic being the last Munich survivor still playing... '...an urban legend states that Lukic's mother survived the Munich air disaster while pregnant with him; this is untrue, as the crash happened in February 1958, more than two years before Lukic was born. There was a Mrs Lukić on board the plane, who did survive (along with her young daughter) after being saved by Manchester United goalkeeper Harry Gregg.' Harry was still a hero all the same!
