I never ever thought I would see the day heard on the way back from Dewsbury from the wakey CEO?

 

Unbelievable considering the statements that have been coming out of the club over the last week.

Well after last week something had to happen, it's no use sitting back wringing your hands. At least they've made a decision they think will hopefully get us back on track, only time will tell.

trouble is, everyone else is using it against us. we are competing with one hand tied behind our back. if it comes down to points difference it may cost us.

Yes but they became 'our' players. Annakin's had a pretty good debut today but the problem is, Mr Agar (not anyone at Fev) has the greatest say in whether or not he is available, never mind playing, for us next week......

Really thought your club would not go down this road, I'm glad my club haven't used any players from Bulls this season.

This was posted on the Leigh site tonight

''The mystery investor is said to be Cath Hetherington from Wakefield who is putting in the money to get the stands finished. This is also the reason for the DR deal. The reason behind it all is that Wakefields lease at Belle Vue ends at the end of the season and it's looking likely that they will be evicted by the RBS who own the ground. This obviously leaves them with nowhere to play, hence the link up with Featherstone.

The cloak and dagger secrecy is said to be because of a possible 'conflict of interests' going forward into next year if both sides are in the middle 8 and CH is involved in both.

The lad who has furnished me with this info is a decent fella and been correct on many issues regarding Fev etc.''

Interesting as I know hubby was watching the Leigh game

your source is an imbecile.

Kath Hetherington has not even invested money in wakefield which has been publicly stated previously, and the Hetherington's would only invest in anything if they had full control, which will never be the case with this club. next name please

You’ve missed a trick Sweaty, you could have really wound us up by finishing ur post by saying this bloke you know recons Fev and Wakey will merge.

Incidentally, a bloke down the pub recons that even if Elvis didnt die in 1977 he would probably be dead now. Hope thi neews hasnt come as too much of a shock to any Elvis fans

The loan system can be just as bad. We had Andy Ellis on loan 2 years ago and were going well, Briggs & Hepworth were injured so Andy Kain could move back to stand off. Wakefield recalled him just before the Northern Rail Cup Final, Andy had to fill in at hooker, and we lost a game we were red hot favourites to win.

I can't see much difference myself, I don't like either but sometimes needs must.

Why cant we give our kids a chance? we have a great 20s squad but they are not getting a look in?

we are just going to go back to the DP days of talking about a pathway then bringing people in from other clubs when we are short on numbers? Isnt this the reason we spent all the money on the CE to provide and create a pathway for our own?

I watch the 20s now and then and feel theres at least 5-6 players that could more than hold their own with the current squad?

why arent they getting a chance?

Sorry chaps, that was a quote not from me and I have no idea of its factual substance but thought you might have

I will continue my light hearted banter that you guys had first hit on after our soul selling to Wigan last year and keep away from the heavy stuff

Does anyone actually know the details of this yet?  There's been no announcements from Fev yet.

 

We've got a lot of injured forwards and maybe it's just easier and faster to set up a DR agreement than a proper loan deal.....or maybe Wakefield don't want to do a loan deal.

 

Either way regardless of other examples  i can't see fev being told who they can and can't play and a can't see this arrangement lasting longer than our injuries do.

 

We haven't sold our soul to the devil..........he haven't given up our own ambition to be a super league reserve team.........we've just got a few injuries.

 

Our only problem is we've backed the wrong horse in JB and are trying to rectify that mid season which isn't ideal.

I think it's great that DR stopped being bad for the game yesterday teatime.........

And that's the point. If Fev want to go into DR, well that's fine, and actually nothing to do with anyone else, supporters or otherwise. What other supporters will have a go at is that Fev fans were quick to go down the selling your souls route with other clubs and took a strong stance against it. Now it's suddenly ok as long as it brings success. In addition, some of the quotes from Fev fans on here are eerily similar to those of other club's supporters, saying that their club will not be dictated to by any club no matter who they are, and that the terms of their DR agreement will be different from the terms of everyone else's.  

Times are changing for Fev, and many of your supporters will have to come to terms with that, whether for good or bad!

Quite. I can only hope it's for the good (although I am somewhat sceptical that it will be long term).
