In Topic: the first genuine marquee player signing..

Yesterday, 11:32 AM

He won't be going to Leeds as a marquee player, Hetherington said on Backchat that they will not be using the marquee player option as they don't have enough space on the cap to accommodate one. Lenighan confirmed that Tomkins is Wigan's nominated marquee player for next season.

Have to say the BBC's tribute to the history of the cup done by Maxine Peake is absolutely fantastic.

I started a thread about this last month. Basically at the cut off date on 27th July players had to be nominated to play for just one club in the 8s, either their parent club or the partner club.

It isn't ideal but some SL clubs have been over cautious. Using Wigan/Workington as an example, Town have had Lewis Tierney for about 80% of the regular season games but at the cut off Wigan made the decision to nominate him as a Wigan player. While I understand the Wigan position I think the chances of them using Lewis in the 8s is remote and they could maybe have taken a more practical decision. I don't blame them for their decision but when you see a club like Widnes allowing 3 players to remain with Whitehaven then I can't help thinking it was a very short sighted decision.

I listened to some of the hustings this morning and boy, it did nothing to inspire, for mine Corbyn is looking like a potential winner simply because of the inabilities of the other 3 to do or say anything meaningful or that captures the imagination.

Exactly. Corbyn is the "none of the above" option, despite his acolytes trying to hail him as some new political messiah.
