He's a DM?? Leeds paid over half a mill for him just over 2 years ago.

Well the Leeds bit really doesnít have legs based on the way they run their club, that said if PB thinks heís good enough thatís good enough for me.

But you do like seeing young players come through?  And Henry is a young player.

If you prefer watching a player like Romanski come through rather than a Chris Robertson, for example.  Isn't that becasue you relate to them in a different way in terms of your support.... hence a relationship?
Yes he is, but he didn't play on Saturday and my post was based on the young players who impressed during the first 60 min game v WBA.

I didn't say I preferred to watch youngsters coming through over anything else. I said seeing young players develop is a positive. Seeing Robertson improve and merit a first team place would also be a positive. My support on a match day has fuck all to do with building/creating/craving relationships with individual players - that's something you seem to have interpreted erroneously.

Just imagine Power announcing this

ĎCarlisle are holding open trials this weekend in a desperate attempt to put a squad together for the season ahead.

Ex pros looking to get back into the game and young Sunday league players are what the club are looking for but anyone can turn up and try their luck as long as you donít mind a salary of £400 a week.

So if you still have dreams of being a footballer, get yourself down there on Saturday morning. Bring boots (studs and moldies), shin pads and a packed lunch.í

Fair enough..... I won't bother replying to your posts again, as for me relating to a player vicariously, in both an individual and holistic sense is the essence of fandom. There's obviously no hope of reaching any agreement.

How precisely do you relate to them? I understand there's something that exists.. I'd probably implicitly back Matt Taylor over X from another club out of the blind loyalty that exists in a personality contest.. But I don't actually relate to them in any way.

Matt Taylor would be a good example.... you can see his quality as a player, but further can admire his sheer commitment to his profession and thereby the fans.  You can also see that he's coming towards the end, but that kind of increases the respect....

That PB (not lead) has no chance of assembling a squad before the season starts. Absolutely no one of any credible experience wants to play under him, we're only signing youths and punts, and a bunch of trialis...*
