  1. ....but he is. No one is going to beat the tw'@pack with all the advantages they have (earned) in the play off series. The recent permanent signings are signed for 2020 also. If Leigh managed to win through in the play offs to the final they could possibly have had to go to Toulouse and also Toronto twice, (maybe Toulouse twice) thats not including Toronto in their last game of the regular season. With a mainly part time squad I would say it wuld be a miracle if Leigh got promoted. Maybe Leigh should finish 4th then at least they get one home play off game, as 2nd is unlikely
  2. If DB hadn't 'forced' players to find other clubs, they (the players) would be alot worse off than they are now and there would be no club. Can't comment on Larroyer, would love to comment on Evans but won't. No administration, no 12 point penalty ..... anyone like to comment on Widnes instead. The lack of fact based posts on here is laughable,.... still it has done wonders for the makers of blood pressure medication.
  3. Reminder, they are only 'in talks'. So does that mean they are in talks....or does it mean they have sent out a load of speculative letters to PE firms. I haven't seen any names mentioned of who they are in talks with.
  4. So very predictable Dont you want to join the 'throng' in your Leigh slagathon about clubs actually signing there own (and in Leighs case past players who apparently were badly treated). Actually though you probably have but I must have scrolled past your posts
  5. The haters will always hate. So players returning to the place they were so badly treated?? Odd that isn't it especially as the 'villain' is still the owner. Yes there were 'issues' with 2 players (one only played 4 games in 2 and a half years). Others (9 or 10) were allowed to leave prior to the transfer deadline and thus found other clubs and were no worse off. The couple of hundred k wiped off the remaining wage bill for the year meant Leigh would still exist the following season AND did not need to go into administration, unlike Widnes whose troubles I suspect will commence again at the end of this season. Seeing as some views on here are not based around actual facts allow me some guesswork of my own regarding the clubs situation at the end of 2018. Faced with what was about to arise in the coming months I am pretty certain that Administration woud have been advised. Whether this was advised is purely speculation and as brutal as some of the facts were. Someone did what they needed to do to ensure the people of Leigh had a club to support. The 2019 aim was initially to avoid relegation but Duffy managed to pull together a squad with a bit of quality. They have not done too bad considering the wage bill is now over a million less than 2018 Funny how the snowflakes only appear when Leigh have a bit of success. Sorry, no, very very predictable
  6. I see the same old people still have there Leigh-dar turned on.
  7. TWP seem very good with words and shout them very loudly so that we all hear. Sadly, and not for the first time, the actions in the background bear no resemblance to the words
  8. Bradford and Fax, the whole 17. Featherstone to a lesser extent.
  9. Toronto have never given thousands of free tickets pmsl. See ticketmaster and special codes for upto 4 free tickets per person
  10. A statement from Andy Mazey of Swinton Lions https://swintonlionsrlfc.co.uk/news/chairmans-statement/
  11. I am sure DB could have put Leigh into administration and was possibly advised to, but he managed to off load around 9 very large contracts as players were allowed to seek alternative clubs just prior to the deadline and agreed deals with the majority that remained until the end of the season. It wasn't pleasant and did look ugly but in hindsight it did save the club whether people agreed with the way it was done or not. It also avoided any local suppliers getting screwed as far as I know and started 2019 as a part time club, ready to climb again. TBH there isn't much point in spending excessive amounts of cash this year. Just let Toronto get on with it.
  12. So they have just signed 2 Leeds players (Walters and Ormondroyd) and are now also after Brierley. I seem to remember a few years ago, they signed 4 Leeds players on one year contracts who then returned to Leeds but still used their Dual Reg arrangement with Leeds. Was that a way of just using more than the allowed number of DR/loan players. For a club that has lost over half a million quid in fundng, they aren't half managing to splash some cash.
  13. Thats quite true, hopefully they don't all think like you . Incidentally some have paid he whole annual fee instead of monthly
  14. A recent update was that the LISA 'recruitment drive' netted 130 new members in just a few days which equated to around 12k for the year, so just 3k short of the suggested amount as the club stated they would not need it all at once. So I would say this looks like it has been a qualified success regardless of what you think of the method.
