Is Derek still there, or is this "potentially" more cash that the cash strapped club can't afford to lose?

JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

Derek is still here, and we are not 'cash strapped'. He is just keeping his 'hands in his pockets' next season, that's all.

Letting the dust settle, with the sounds of things.

Decent coach and some decent players o the Horizon, but all PT.

Sustainability is much needed.

Enjoy SL

Is John Duffy really worth tapping up?
I can think of plenty of other coaches who would have been available for an approach. Never understood the hype for Duffy personally.

A promising coach, who has played over 200 games for Leigh. Therefore he has an affinity with the club and, hopefully, will bring us back to a club containing a base of local players, displaying a pride in the shirt, and playing attractive rugby. (something that has been lacking, certainly over the past twelve months)

Personally, I think he would have comfortably made the top four with Fev, but for a crippling injury list, and the consequent reliance on scraps offered by their DR partner - Leeds.
