i responded to George being unlikely to tear up a contract and that in Nicko you were getting a decent replacement....and as you already know a large exodus of players.......If you already know that what part of any of that made you choke on your farleys rusk ?

 

Because you ignoramus, you were claiming to have more knowledge than anyone else here, as if we cared. The reason I am choking on my Farley's rusk is not that players are leaving, but cretins like you are coming on here claiming to be the Oracle!

Ive never understood why semi pro players need agents - they dont get paid much as it is, and then give away money to someone foe nothing, would have thought ghey would have enough about them to negotiate their own contracts.

You wouldnt get an agent involved negotiating a salary for a new job at say Tesco (for arguments sake) so dont see what they gain from it.

Only people gaining seem to be the agents.

Can anyone enlighten me as to why?

I guess that, by employing someone who's 'clued up' to handle their affairs, players assume that they will be offered the best deal possible. Also, having someone negotiating on your behalf removes the stress of having to tout your services to every club in the league at the end of each season. I guess that they have their benefits in that respect. However, I can't really fathom why any semi-pro player would be willing to pay a representative a portion of their wage for a job that they could surely do themselves. Maybe they don't trust the clubs to offer them what they're worth? I have a suspicion that there's also a little vanity and 'keeping up with the Jones'' mentality invokved - i.e. "I've got an agent, I've made it". All supposition of course, I don't really know the ins and outs of any arrangement.

However, in terms of the whole 'phenomenon', I'd say that undoubtedly the biggest winners are the agents themselves, with the players in second and the clubs bottom of the pile. In a time when clubs like our own are struggling desperately to stay afloat and make ends meet, agents aren't helpful as they simply push wages up in order to increase the size of their own cut.

I actually thought it was the return of Eddie Rombo but realise now the error of my ways. And that was my point about his name. What agent would come on here proclaiming he is an agent? Doesn't say much for his ability to maintain confidentiality!

I cant help but laugh......wow some absolute shockers on here

 

I've seen people who can't help but laugh before - most of them were wearing straitjackets at the time.  Put the scatter-gun away and come out with a single substantive fact and people might, just might, give you some credibility.  The only thing you have proven so far is that you are an indiscriminately offensive jerk who responds to every point with a witless personal insult.  Go and purvey your garbage elsewhere.  No-one here is listening.

I understood that leak had joined for the rest of this,and next season. therefore, assuming that both Hemingway and Moore leave, he would step up at 7 and leave Nicholson at 9, again assuming that Flanagan goes! Then of course there's young Whitmore, if he gets retained/signs onso we have plenty choice at 7 and 9 and short term cover at 6. Things ain't looking too bad!

playersagent is actually an agent, he acts on behalf of Anthony Nicholson and around another 30 players at Championship and Super League level.

 

Unfortunately he is infact correct about the mass exodus of players from Batley next year due to wage structure issues but does not go on to tell you that the same amount of moves will be happening at other clubs aswell.

 

You boys have already made ample signings for next year but they cannot be announced until later this year hence you only announcing contract extensions of players you already hold the registration for.

 

Chill.

Mr Binosh. No-one is suggesting he is wrong. We all know that many are leaving, it was the fact that he came on here purporting to have information that none of us knew. And then decided to get abusive when none of us were impressed.

Well if he is as you say, then if he was representing me after this spectacle I would very quickly give him the heave-ho.

Thanks for explaining,  so is players agent officially telling us his player has signed for Batley on a fans forum?

bore off.....who are you the forum police ? I cant be arsed with the geriatrics on here....weird bunch

 Don't worry son, you will get there yourself soon enough.  Only an idiot forgets that life is a learning experience and age is to be respected not ridiculed.  When you have actually achieved something other than mouthing off and trying to verbally bully older people, who in all likelihood have achieved more than you have even thought about, then you might command some respect yourself. You do yourself no favours bigging up against what you perceive as weak targets. Just an arrogant deluded moron.

It's well documented on the other threads who is supposed to be leaving.... I make it 4 to Feath, 2 to Salford, 2 to Halifax and a retirement at the last count.

 

Obviously that means players will be moving at other clubs too. There are only so many players and so many clubs.

 

Batley will turn out a team, the sun will shine over the Mount and life will carry on. :)

I think you can add to that..........

I think you need to give this a break and visit a few other clubs forums to inform fans how many players are leaving their respective clubs. You seem to have some doom-mongering agenda against Batley, ajd its fairly obvious. What you don't seem to have grasped is that Batley fans are aware that players are leaving at the end of the season, and are also aware that players will be arriving to take their places. Personally, I'd say that the players we've announced as having re-signed this far are probably those whom we were most keen to keep hold of. The remainder - apart from Greg Johnson, who's the best wingman in the Championship and a player we were resigned to losing within weeks of his debut, are all eminently replaceable. We'll be as strong next season as we have been for most of this - if not moreso.

What PA does not seem to grasp is that we accept we are not the richest club in the Championship and other clubs are prepared to offer bigger signing on fees that we can only dream of matching which players naturally accept. What we have is a board of directors that will stretch our finances to the limit, a coaching team that will get the best out of players who have the privilege of pulling a Batley shirt on and supporters who live in the real world.

We have punched well above our weight and expectations over a number of seasons and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future no matter how many players decide to seek allegedly greener pastures.
