You could get him on your permutation system for the top 8 finishes, that would sort him out for the time being :D

No matter what I do to get Wakefield Trinity off my mind, the ups and downs, the justices the injustices, the long suffering rollercoaster. I just can't relax. Especially now. Could we win our last 2 fixtures and make the Semifinals? This team can compete with any other team in this league. I just feel on edge. How the hell does every other fan cope ? Am I the only one that's a nervous wreck everytime the mighty Trinity take to the field ?
I just wish I could take each fixture with a pinch of salt but the grip of a successful Trinity team always takes over. Hate it when we lose, total elation when we win. Does it take everybody else 2-3 days to get over a defeat? Or is it just me !!! Helpppppppp !!!!!
I used to get anxious at games and get involved at shout the team on I used to be in the seated area and one day I got up shouting with joy of a last minute drop goal that Sykes did and could of passed out feeling that dizzy I stopped doing that as scrapping me off the floor :lol: I still have my days feeling sick of the thoughts of a win of the big time, call me gullible I still think we can do it I still believe any team in the top 6 can win the super league title, why think anything else, already wishing it was Thursday

The great Hunter S Thompson wrote once 'buy the ticket, take the ride' and that philosophy has always served me well enough. You've got to live it a bit to enjoy it.

Devastated at full time the other night, 10 year old fighting back the tears next to me. These are the games we want to be in, great times are here. Enjoy it :)
What would a Cockney know about rugby league?

I go through a cycle. We have a few years of mediocrity and you during those times, I am just grateful for a win and take defeat as a familiar friend. But when we get an occasional sniff of something, yes I am a nervous wreck but only for about 24 hrs in advance. It took me 24 hrs to get over Thursday. That was a REALLY tough one to take. My expectations have lowered a bit now; The Grand final is more remote now. It would be lovely to take it to the last weekend by beating Hull. I will be bricking it on Thursday!

After sixty one years watching Trinity through good and (mostly) bad times I've witnessed most things. I keep telling myself that I won't get upset if we lose, but it doesn't seem to work out that way, even after all this time. Like last Thursday, it wasn't so much losing but the way we lost. I often wonder if the players feel the losses in the same way that the supporters do.

I really feel for the young 'uns who've never had the thrill of seeing Trinity pick up the cup (any cup), or seeing the team bring the cup through the packed streets of Wakefield. Marvelous memories. I was stood in the crowd at Westgate station in 1960 and followed the Beverley's brewery lorry all the way up to the town hall. Great days!! I wonder if we ever will see them again.

I feel we are closer than we have been since 1979-81 when we had the 2nd best side compared to this one, since the 60's, which I am just too young to remember as a 1963 entrant to the world. We have the best management team and owner in all my 47 years and, again, my deep gratitude goes to the work and commitment and money of Michael Carter and the work of his team for some great achievements. We have an entertaining and quality side that appears to be improving by the season. We have continuity if players which I really like. We have a great family atmosphere at the club and I do think that we just might win something in the next 2 years if the momentum can be maintained and....I won't say it...the G word is the main issue. Sort that, and we WILL be cheering at the Town Hall I reckon, though after their 'input' I would take the celebrations somewhere else!

I got taken to my first game in the mid to late 80s by my dad, I've never really seen success from Trinity. The best I've really seen is avoiding mediocrity. Except this last 2 seasons have been different, it's the first time I've been really happy to say I'm a Trinity fan!!

Don't forget t'Yorkshire Cup :-)

It is "Fifita" not "Fafita"

If you don't know the difference between "there", "their" and "they're" I might get annoyed.

That was the first time I'd ever been in a football stadium, I though it was absolutely enormous (my only reference points at the time being Belle Vue and the handful of away days)
