Leeds will be fine, whoever, whatever. Nothing can go wrong. After all, they own their own ground 😀

Pretty true really. Short term on-field difficulties are very different to a long term lack of financial viability and ground security.

I disagree , in my opinion what is needed to save RL in Leeds is obvious. However from your user name it seems to me you can't 'see the wood for the trees' 

Leeds needs a strong Hunslet

 

Sorry what is so obvious that I can't see it ?

Except when those short term on-field difficulties get you relegated and the £M you then lose as a consequence.

Maybe you can’t fathom it out because Barrett hasn’t got a clue what he’s doing. 

Reading the aussie press, Kyle was taken out of first team action as Gould thought he needed to 're-set' himself and his game but now he is ready to play.  Then Gus drops a load of pressure on him by saying the Dogs will revolve around what Kyle does.  If its a confidence thing, which imo is a massive percentage of an RL players make up, then to say nothing wouldve been a better option!

I feel a bit sorry for him . He’s been scapegoated and not fully backed by coaches which is hardly likely to help him . So when he gets the chance there must feel like an inordinate amount of pressure on him . Go on , we’re rock bottom … over to you

Phil Gould being a dick? Why that doesn't ring true with the man we know and admire at all!

I understand Heahdingly is mortgaged. If that's true, what happens if Leeds get relegated and don't have the income to pay the (commercial) mortgage?  

If that is true..and I'm sure we'll soon know...it's a great motivator to avoid relegation. (Not for a moment do I think they'd finish anywhere near bottom, in reality.)

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

If you mean Headingley, the answer is, it's not.

Next!

This is exactly right.  It's the difference between the strength of a club and the strength of a team.  In the former category, Leeds are in an enviable position.

Very true. Although, and here's something which will delight JohnM, the pandemic is wreaking a bit of havoc even with (particularly with) the strong clubs.

Caddick's 2021 consolidated accounts, published yesterday and which include Leeds RL as a separate segment, are an early indication of how Rugby League clubs endured the second year of Covid. They show a continuation of Wigan-style losses at Leeds. But that should reverse in 2022 as 'more normal operations' resume. Whereas clubs with nothing to fall back on will still have nothing to fall back on.
