No Barry Eaton can see himself developing the best kids for Leeds to take into their first team - read his article.
Barry Eaton wants to take the best of the rest from Leeds to improve his team - read the article.
Barry Eaton wants Leeds fans to start going to watch Hunslet on sundays and Hunslet fans Leeds on Fridays.
Eaton of course does not admit to being a feeder team, the local amateurs feed the players into the club so you have that wrong.
The set up mirrors the way "A" teams work, who said anything about Leeds "buying" Hunslet? Try reading up on these things. as Blackpool Hawks says without this there will be no Hunslet.
And you still think these clubs still retain their independance.
Stop spreading propoganda that all is well in the Championship.
Show me evidence it's "business as usual"
Start another thread on "all is not well in the Championship if you wan"t. This is about player link ups.
And as you only have an opinion, lets keep it that way. I may be tempted to offer an alternative view rather than pointing out that your facts aren't facts.
One point that I must pull you up on is that no club has independence. They rely on the clubs and supporters from other clubs to survive, sponsorship, TV money etc
If you are "implying" clubs have miraculously managed to continue existence through independence then again, your peddling misinformation but If Leeds and Hunslet do become one club because Hunslet need an SL club for a benefactor, then that's for Hunslet and Leeds to sort out. However this in my opinion is not a wholesale transfer to a future where Championship clubs rely on direct SL ownership to survive. Few fans of Championship clubs would ever prescribe to this.
In my view these link ups are in the majority of cases, about managing a failed system to the benefit of all the clubs. It makes sense for SL clubs to get direct links to manage the academy player overspill effectively and for Championship clubs to have access to a known pool of talent rather than messing with expensive agents.
