Leigh sign...........


Recommended Posts

Joe Mellor on a 2 year extension till the end of 2024, I have only one word WHY, if Leigh do make it and get promoted this year in all intense and purpose he will be an half back in SL. Sorry but as fan of the club and all the positivity that has come about this season the signing of a 32 year old who has never with the best will in the world been a prominent half in his previous time in SL is most definatley a backward step.

I thought alot of their signings are on the assumption they'll go up. No guarantees whatsoever. The model Leigh use is not the one for me a club should use to go up. A plan has to be in place. The let's get promoted and hope the relegation trapdoor shuts is not the way forward.

So what is your plan ? , Sign players on the assumption they won't get you up ? , Or tell them if they do get you up , you don't want them afterwards ?

Longer contracts with promotion and relegation clauses. That is how football teams manage.

You mean like the one we've just given Joe Mellor ?

So what point were you attempting and failing to make ?

You asked what sort of plan for contracts should Leigh make, I proffered a solution common in P/R sport. It isn't that complex.

You said longer contracts , and we've just extended a 31 yr olds contract for another 2 years , so we've done what you suggest , so what point are/were you trying to make ?

Can't believe nobody has bothered to honour this proud TRL tradition before now.

Can someone please explain that road sign pic to a southern not very knowledgeable about RL or Leigh person? Thanks

This is a thread about a Leigh sign, isn't it?

Oh, yes. Sorry, had a few Guinnesses and thought I was missing something more subtle. Makes sense now. Like the Arsenal sign Messi (Messy) pic. And the nice thing is that if I ever wanted to visit Leigh, I now know it's off the M6, which I didn't know before. I'd probably continue to either Birmingham or Wigan/Preston though.

It could be worse , if you actually saw that sign , you'd have just visited Warrington 😉

It's why I rarely dare venture north. There's just too many potential hazards.

And as you admit , you don't know what's in Mellors contract , so basically you're either ' stirring ' or ' waffling ' ? , So which is it ?

I didn't make specific reference to Mellor's contract. You asked in your post what could Leigh (and others by extension presumably) do in that scenario.

Other than the two options you put forward, Promotion and Relegation wage clauses are an option. A very common option in fact in other P/R models.

I asked mumby to be more specific in his reply , you took it upon yourself to ' but in ' , but all you've done is agree with what Leigh have one , so essentially just ' waffling ' , you aren't adding anything to the discussion , neither informative no humourous 

Enjoy your day

Butting in on a discussion board? 😂 if you want a private conversation then have one in the PMs.

It doesn't necessarily mean that Mellor is going to be starting half back.

A viable SL team needs at least three half backs, possibly four - but certainly three. Because of injuries, suspensions etc

I would say Mellor is a decent backup half back for a Super League squad. 

Harry - So long as you have two better first choice half backs, it's all good

And there we have the crux Paul, I have not thought for one minute our starting 6 & 7 were good enough early doors this season but the club has carried on with them albeit Reynolds at 6 has really improved of late, but I have no faith at all in Mellor, just my opinion of course and seemingly in complete contradiction to the Leigh coaching staff.
