    Why, because I tell the truth, if you found that game last week good quality you are very easily pleased, some people implied it was good defence on show it wasn't it was completely devoid of ideas, and if you read on here the comments made by the FC fans they bemoan the football that their team plays.

    We're entitled because its our team. Nowt to do with you!!?

    Please explain how you would work your 3 year exemption from relegation, could other clubs still be relegated? If so by the end of the 3 year of the first club gaining promotion we could have 3 teams "on exemption" that is 25% of the current number of teams in the division, is that feasible?

    I await the reply to the above with interest.

    Wigan have schools and junior teams at clubs which are well coached. We also get a lot of the best athletes locally. We do, though, scout far and wide. Smithies is Halifax (I know he has leap frogged straight into the first team). As a club it has many advantages when it comes to running an Academy, and could get away with re-badging the amateur junior town team if it wanted. 

    I am astonished a city like Hull can’t sustain 2 Academies, or at least produce one elite between them. I think I read that even that is being closed? We don’t help ourselves as a game a lot of the time. 

    You are correct that the Hull joint academy is being closed. However, the players are reverting to their parent club so there should be two academies in the future, as far as I am aware.
