Not the first time you have quoted me out of context. Im sure a lot of Fev fans would agree if you posted the rest of the quote......

Oxy how did Leigh play like. Have you got any advice on their weaknesses and how we can beat them.

With a similar team to the one you had yesterday I think you will beat them comfortably to be honest. Their backs are decent but their pack is average at very best.

The reserves have to be good enough though to justify playing them. Realistically Fev are 6 or 7 players short of having a team capable of finishing in the top 5 so their options are either chuck in some players they know aren't good enough and likely finish anywhere from 7th downwards, or bring in a load of loan/Dr's who are bordering on SL standard. Although most of their fans may not agree with DR and the diluting the value of the Fev club, its pretty easy to see which route most of them would choose to go down.

Happy now BO

Not sure why you're jumping down his throat on this comment when it's entirely true. Take away DR and we're 6 or 7 short in terms of our squad, not out of 17, as he says.

You've lost me now. DR or loan makes little difference, they're not our players and it's quite possible the loanees will be gone in 2 weeks time.

They could stay quite a while if their clubs don't need them ? Hopefully Bussey will be available and Ashton Golding fit by then, or a new full-back signed?

They could but at the same time they might not. History, both at Fev and elsewhere, suggests the latter is pretty common. Relying on loanees (and DRs) is a recipe for let down. Whilst I reluctantly understand why we use DR I really can't fathom why our supporters get excited about who Leeds leave out of their 19.

Bussey said he'll be back for the Halifax game.

Singleton was 18th man last Friday, and played for Fev on Sunday, but it won't happen next week because Leeds play Salford on Sunday. If they keep same 19 it means Newman won't be available either. While D/R players might help to make the Top 5 it's no guarantee they will be available for the play-offs.

Don't forget Hardcastle missing yesterday as well.  Some quality to come back there.

Great stuff. Big strong lad. Our Team seems to get better every week. One good thing nobody’s touched on. No injuries from Sunday. Long may it continue as for me we will need as many bodies as possible to get through this hard challenging season.

Yeah amazing how a bit of context changes that quote isn't it?

I don't know about "excited" but this board has had a bit of a resurgence in the last year or two and games/squads tend to get analysed in more detail on here than a lot of the other Championship teams' boards, especially on the match threads (200 posts on the Bradford one and about 150 so far on the Batley one). It's hard to do that and ignore the fact that there are going to be at least a couple of DR players in our squad each week, trying to predict the squad is part of the fun and yes clues from the Leeds squad announcment is part of that equation.
