Would love to get Wilkes back.

Wilkes at 11, Fletcher at 12 and Miller off the bench.

Wilkes  was  awesome  against  leigh  and  Wigan.  I  would  defo  take  him  back.  Spencer  works  hard  but  doesn't  break  many  tackles.  Wilkes  on  the  other  hand  takes  a  bit  more  stopping.

.................And  maybe  Nanyn  as  well........... ;D

I'm sorry but you lot must be desperate to cling on to some vein hope that we are a club in crisis. Our chairman has stepped down, so what? He is still a majority shareholder and will remain so until he sells his shares. Your fans on the TIW website are making fools out of themselves with their wild speculation about whether or not our club can afford to pay the players wages.. Carry on dreaming everybody, our players are going no where..  :-*

Oli Wilkes and Mick Nanyn, come on back

Mr Vaghaun has ruined yet another sports club

Widnes fans are in denial

Following a Board Meeting this afternoon the following statement has been released by the Club.

Following the resignation of Stephen Vaughan the remaining directors have today put in a cash injection of ?150,000 which will take care of the Club?s short-term financial requirements.

They are also putting into place strategies to ensure the Club?s long-term future. These include seeking to appoint additional directors to the Board and investigating additional funding opportunities; the Club has no bank borrowing or Crown Creditor obligations.


The Club is disappointed with the scurrilous rumours, in which there is no foundation, that have appeared in the media and are currently circulating within the game.

[b]It is also disappointed that individual players have been approached by other Clubs and intends to investigate these illegal approaches and submit its findings to the Rugby Football League[/b].

Everybody at the Club is determined to ensure that Widnes Vikings continues its excellent start to the season, beginning with Sunday?s Northern Rail Cup Tie with Batley Bulldogs.

Pete Barrow
Chief Executive

Makes  interesting  reading  especially  the  5th  paragraph  which  I  have  highlighted.  Apparently  there  considering  legal  action  against  clubs  who  they  beleive  have  tried  to  poach  their  players.

Now  cast  your  minds  back  to  2005.  How  long  did  SM  have  on  his  contract  when  he  was  POACHED  by  Widnes. ??? ??? ???

A cash injection or a directors loan  ;D

I would love it if other teams now started poaching Wierdness players after last season. As the old saying goes what comes around goes around
