To be honest as well, the state Leigh were in at the time of the prediction you might have agreed with him apart form the fact that you were saying nowt, Charlie had left the building!!!!
Just goes to show how quickly things can turn for many of the teams / clubs / and supporters in this division.
Fax will be back but I can't predict in what form or strength.

I agree about things can change as well , we at are lucky to Derek,at the start of the season our team was nothing like it is now,but the support was still good around 3,000.
You know what I say is only banter,I even have 2 teams in the Fax Fantasy League comp, though I’m doing terrible this year.
I love visits to the Shay and look forward to meeting the fans,as you say Fax will comeback.

Ian, I doubt very much that Fax paid KL any fee. As I understand it we paid him a percentage of his wage at Leigh. But it's not just about money is it? It's the way you treat people, and whilst I don't know Mr Beaumont he's not the most popular of blokes is he? Anyroad, enjoy the play-offs but remember, cream allus rises to the top. Especially when it's Yorkshire cream. See you next season.charlie caroli wrote:I think only Larroyer and Rhys Evans were the only players threatening to take action, but they both found Clubs , we didn’t get any fees so it was a mutual agreement.
I bet Larroyer was paid a signing on fee by Fax, so he wouldn’t be that much out of pocket.
If anything it was some of the players that screwed us, Kurt Baptiste didn’t earn his cash.

Personally I don't do them, it's comes from once seeing the Blackpool Beach fortune teller was closed due to unforeseen circumstances.

On paper we had the same team that finished 4th along with what looked like some decent additions not to mention that Leigh did not even finish the season been able to raise 17 players. Yeah the prediction looks bad now but at the time? Where did the pundits place us? Looks like they got it very wrong as well.
As for Charlie, like I said it would have been easy to go on their message board at the end of last season and rub their noses in it, not once did I do that though yet every chance Charlie gets he comes on here and does the same dressing it up as "I like Fax, Im friends with one of their directors, etc etc". When it goes pop again Charlie will be reminded at every opportunity.
