Hopefully, Alexander will sign him for Salford, as he's stated he's not a L2 player!  Grin

Sorry my friend - you are naive one and like some fans actually know very little about the psychology of some (not necessarily all players) - would it surprise you for example that in lower divisions there are a significant number of players in any squad that donít want to be involved in play offs? - it probably does because a fanís relationship with their club is completely different to that of a paid member of staff - and before you start your response (typically ignoring anything that does not suit your argument) Iím not talking about all players but they are present in most clubs to have signicance - bottomline here is if we as fans see a player who is paid well giving halfhearted performances when other players give 100% then fans are untitled to make comments because that player is cheating both the fans and the players that care - it may be a popular view because it probably true!

That's a pretty bold statement, especially when you claim it's a significant number. I take it you have figures to back this up?

No figures (so you have every right to be cynical) - but close enough to the dressing room of several professional football clubs in the last 20 years to know not all players have the same level of dedication as fans

If you have a squad of 26, realistically around 14 players will play and also benefit from appearance bonuses.

The other 12 players will be having to do a couple weeks more training with no benefit to themselves what so ever (and at this level, probably out of contract in the summer). So I think it makes sense a good number of players won't be too bothered.

As with any walk in life, you always find some more motivated than others.

However, if I were a fringe player looking to break through I'd be MORE motivated to train on, not less. After last season, anyone still with a contract who wasn't involved so much, will never have a better chance of getting a game, surely. And those who did feature have a lot to prove now....
