I'm finding the agony of reading poop from supposed Leeds fans who don't even know the name of one of their superstars absolute agony.....

DR will always cause unrest especially for the lads who will miss out on match day to make way for them.

 

Not just them - there was an interview in the Evening Post several years ago with Tommy Haughey (playing for Hunslet at the time) just as DR had started in which he basically said that not only those missing out are p'd off, but also those still selected because 1. it's their 'mates' who are suffering (team spirit/togetherness) and 2 because they think 'it could be me' next week

Problem is if we hadn't of DR with Leeds some other club would of...

 

And?

 

DD,

We all agree with DR is bad for the game and our league in particular. I would like to see all teams to have A teams and have a meaningful reserve game. How many teams are doing this?

However unfortunately it is not the current rules and all teams (with maybe the exception of Leigh) are looking for ways to save money. Be this via DR, loans or not having reserve teams. Whatever a team chooses to do on this front is their choice. Whether Fev have made the right choice only time will tell.

You are right about the comments made by some Fev fans on this and other forums, they were out of order and come back to haunt some. Every team has to makes the choices they believe are best for their team, as it should be.

Good luck to Batley with the choices they have made this year would be good to see you do well.

 

But, if we're only in it to 'save money' why sign the lads who are being left out in the first place if they aren't good enough? Would have saved even more if we hadn't.

From the Club's announcement about postings on social media it would appear that our fraternisation with DR is already causing unrest in the squad.

As I've said many times potentially great for CTRLFC but not the town itself http://www.pontefrac...-town-1-7704902
