In Topic: DR YES OR NO

Yesterday, 12:26 PM

Everyone is saying the same thing "No" but if we need to finish 4th as we know we do then we must play on a level playing field. To me it's all in or all out. If AH thinks it strengthens us and we can then we should. The lost issue here is development as it doesn't encourage youth investment and dare I say it makes us a feeder club. In summary no but if others do then so should we - if it gets us 4th

 

So why have we signed so many players on? If they're not good enough they should be shipped out with whoever signed them on in the first place following close behind.

- if the Championship clubs didn't want the DR players, they don't have to take them. ..

 

Of course they don't.....

I feel Fev have prioritised the completion of the stadium rather than the playing squad...

 

You are completely wrong. Fev have a 1st team squad of 31 with a number of players that should get a game long before bringing in DR lads: Cording, Nicholson, Walmsley, Ormonroyd, Cooper and Tonks to name but 6 forwards, without adding Carvell....

 

If the Wakey lad who played on Sunday was better than any of them, I'm a Dutchman

I doubt very much there will be a 20 point difference in Fev v Bulls game. It could go either way but can't see much more than 1 score in it, hopefully in Fev's favour.

 

BTJ is (hopefully) following on from his stunningly successful predictions last week, although to be fair he was correct that Donny v Fev would be close :tongue:

.....
For this ' ethos ' we have employed to work requires a faith to be shown in all the players in the squad , for them all to be given their chance , if after 12/15 games in we have a plethora of injuries to one particular position then yes we might have to bring somebody in , but ATM we don't and I don't think he will improve our club.....

 

That statement could just as easily relate to Fev's (in my opinion bizarre) decision to draft in DR players last weekend.
