Lets not forget this is the 2nd season we held players to ransom over unpaid contracts.

Its all well and good Maurice & Co stating its a business and redundancies are part of business life, that would be easier for your average fan to take if it were players that had some history with the club i.e Ridyard, Higson, Beswick, Dixon, McNally.

Everyone knows Derek went poop or bust with a big budget, albeit partly funded by himself and lost.

That's what makes it so much harder to take.

Are you in 'un-named' 1%er's Binosh who said before the season started that this assembled squad would fail, or did you like nearly everyone else applaud Derek for bringing all those stars to the club?

Could you see any other club in any sport bring a whole new squad & expect it to hit the ground running after only playing 2 warm ups ? ... whoever thought that one is at fault
Leigh to win challenge cup before 2020
Leigh to reach Grand Final by 2022

Derek to get a queens honour (mbe) by 2025

Oh Leigh oh Leigh oh Leigh

[quote="Michael_Ward"]Ricky Bibey = cack.

He's no good - the lad is huge but couldn't bust through a wet paper bag. He was crap at Wigan, he was crap here, and christ knows why Saints then signed him. Predictably, he was crap there as well.

He's now where he belongs, in NL1.[/quote]

Actually I was very sceptical and had a suspicion we would implode, I was of the opinion the team we had in SL was more than capable of holding its own with minor tweaking, I still believe to this day a new coach would have kept us in SL. Derek has already alluded to the fact we didn't finish bottom of SL and another pre-season and continuity would have seen us finish top 4 in the Championship easily.

The players I would have moved on were Stewart, Vea, Weston, Fleming, Pellisier, Green, Patterson, Dave Thompson & probably Hampshire. I think there is enough space created there to bring some solid players in.

I am of the belief that after 2/3 of the SL season (roughly when we lost in the cup to KR) Jukes should have been moved, I think that a fresh injection of man-management was needed.

I attended the pre season launch and knew straightaway it wasn't going to end well
It didn't make sense to get rid of virtually everyone and start all over and the questions asked and the answers given didn't make me excited
Now it's going to happen again even without a points deduction it's going to be a massive struggle to stay in the championship
I do think however the board will have players all ready to sign when this mess is sorted

I'd like to think that too Lynda, even after the Radio Manchester interview the other night - when we didn't actually get to learn much, if anything, new.
