DM talks of regional assemblies , its just delaying tactics. He doesn't want an English parliament for the same reasons DC does. Let's not kid ourselves they are both after power , an English parliament would do it for the Tories. Regional assemblies would mean Labour could control chunks of the north. Its different sides of the same coin.
If labour have alot less seats than the Tories in England maybe they should look in ward as to the reasons why.
The problem is there is no game time for the young local talent as the west cumbria clubs do not have an U20 's squad like many other Championship teams do . If the Talent gets picked up then its usually by SL clubs that can give them game time and the Cumbria Academy but that ends when they turn past 18 yrs old so many get a job and some quit the game altogether .
Maybe there is some mileage in looking at a combined reserve team for the Cumbrian sides.I would rather have a combined reserve team with Batley than not one.
More likely down to our injury problems of the last couple of months we have had a lot of players out. Now a few are starting to come back the team doesn't pick itself for a change. If we do pick some of these players it will give them match fitness going into the playoffs. I don't underestimate Workington form team behind Leigh these last few months.
There may be some on here who love a good moan , they have good reason to this time. I'm struggling to see why he was let go. The games he played he looked the real deal. Certainly the best full back at the club. When fans see players of his quality go and then sign for Batley questions will be asked and in my opinion rightly. Tonks and Robinson leaving -meh , squad players. JG wasn't that.
All those people that are behind the scenes giving time and money get a big thanks from me. I'm sure we would all be surprised to see how much money the directors put in. I'm sure RL clubs could consume as much money as you are willing to throw at them. Without MS we would have nothing.
