I think that john Lebbon should have been given his chance of a 1st team place today with Maden being injured but once again he was playing for the accademy any1 know what the crack is dsoes DR dislike him or something? coz whenever there is an oppourtunity for the lad to play he always seems to fetch Benson in instead of him who is a good player but i think lebbon would be better what does every1 think?????

benson is a full back.

lebbon was not picked because DR does not like him. i asked john at batley when you back in the first team john? he said probably when rotherham goes

Cant understand why lebon never gets a game hes probably are best  winger at scooting the ball and returning kicks . I personaly feel he puts people like benson in because he nose when maiden is back he can just put him straight back in the team .Because last year he put lebbon in and he played well against hull kr scoring twice and playd well at halifax. Then got droped for calvert who was lacking in confidence. Just thought i would make the point because alot of the people in the crowd want to see the lad given a chance to play  especialy when you think of some of the good games his had over the years

well i also think lebbon should be given a chance as when he does play for the first team he gives 110% andis excellent at sccoting the ball. Unlike calvert he can make good tackles and good yards.

I remember reading alan irvins colum a couple of times and he asked the question about lebbon playin because i think maiden was injured  and dave rotheram said that lebbon would get his chance but it hasnt came . Which i think is a real shame because i go to watch haven home and away and have seen lebbon play some great games for haven and then normaly droped for no reason i think with a run in the team he could be a real asset  and lebbon also has the ability to break the line with good foot work wich we lack when seeds isnt playing

i remember lebbon playing raa wen he was younger and he used to walk through defenses!! ok eague is different but for egremont he used to play center, and score at will. suerly with even more space on the wing he will be a consistent scorer for us, as well as his alround game , his scooting is a bonus, and he is a winger at heart by his own admission!!

 If John is playing well in the academy team he should be
 given the opportunity now that Maden is injured.

id like to say that what lebs has done great at is sticking in and performing for the acadamy even though he aint geting a game for the 1st. the lad is older than most the acadamy and is still happy to work at getin in the 1st team and keeps his mouth shut and accepts the coachs choice unlike a couple of the acadamy we have heard about. good on you john n im sure ur time will come mate
