Gone on loan to Leigh with immediate effect until the end of the season! WTF! Don't we need him?? Can't understand this one at all....if he is fit then he should be playing for us....until the end of the season.

If hes gone on loan, you would assume hes fit to play? If so, why in christs name are we letting him go when were goosed for half backs.
Only thing i can think of is the salary cap, and he needed to be shifted to facilitate Smiths' move.

I have since been told hes definatley not 100% yet....so not sure whats going on. Haha

All the best Kev.

The maths isn't sitting right with me on this one. Surely Brown and Atkins both would've commanded bigger wages than Matty Smith and with Jack Johnson going too - those 3 being offloaded simply to make way for Smith seems odd. Is there someone else on the way (please Widdop!) but, if so, it would've been announced by now surely?

Unless the club knew and have registered widdop before the deadline....no way of leaking it if hes not here yet. Cant see it though...

There is that possibility but if you've heard nothing (as others in the know haven't) then I can't see it. Just seems a pretty poor trade if it is just Smith.

So we are shipping players out left right and centre, we sign a half back that as seen better days we get told we have signed another winger because we are really short in that department Gelling has been signed forever WTF is going on. I don’t know the ins and outs of what goes on behind the scenes but this is reminding me more and more of the end of Tony Smiths daysat the club.

It is a bizzare one in that a club wanted him on loan, it's not weird that we would let him go though. If he is passed fit in the next few weeks then good, but he wouldn't be anywhere near match fit and his timing etc would be way off and he just wouldn't be up to pace. Where as Smith has trained all year and played 7 games so to pick him over Brown is a no Brainer really. The weird thing is why are shifting so many players out now?
Only hope could be that we have signed 1 or 2 players and registered them in time but just not sorted the contracts out 100% or transfer fees etc......could be a complete long shot but i don't understand the sudden movement of our players now rather than the end of the season?

Surely more to this than a simple balancing of books exercise....
