I understand people's noses may have been put out of joint I suppose. It all seems a bit childish though and it hasn't raised even the slightest mention on the Leigh rl fans forum.
The level of the upset surely is minimal.
I do maintain lions 58 is purporting to be a lions fan but isn't.
Moves occur between clubs. It's so common. If everyone took it personally no one would ever move anywhere. And to suggest we have only appointed Duffy to annoy Leigh is surely outrageous.

That's because it seems the fans of Leigh are in a good place right now with a strong financial investing board and management team and growing fan base looking forward to going Full Time and having a tilt at promotion to SL next season having got rid of a pretender by the looks of things, we've ended up with him!

With all due respect to our club we will hardly register on a Leigh forum right now will we? heading for the Championship trap door and oblivion in a C1 comp next year that will be hell in a handcart.

PS- Notice the said Director had his company stewarding at the game Sunday, maybe he's looking for this type of arrangement on a bigger scale at LSV and other stadiums hence having been shown the door at Leigh he came so quickly to us to keep a foot in with LSV while flirting with Salford and Wire through his role with us???

Bury your heads if you like but I won't and can see from a mile how all this is going to end up.

What? I'm stunned! Why would a lifelong Lions fan from the Wigan area want to phone Mr Roddy when he was at Leigh?

Unmasked eh!

Hi Mark I could actually write many paragraphs to defend myself against the troll (who is known to me) - im not going to do that but if true supporters wish to ask me a direct question I will happily answer them if I am able - nothing to hide at all...

Best wishes

Zoro ha ha.

I've nothing to hide just love my club, I grew up off Chorley Road, Beach Street and stood and watched my team in the 80s at Station Road as a lad and was at Old Trafford for the greatest day in my lifetime with players like Holiday and Lee heroes and legends in my mind.

Let's just leave it here now and see how it all plays out, I promise not to say I told you so!

Hmm seems odd that you can't spell the name of the street that you grew up in, nor spell the name of one of your heroes? Try Beech & Holliday perhaps?

Anyway, that's my final word on the subject. Much more important things to attend to. Like my sandwiches for tomorrow.
