  1. I think overall our recruitment under GJ was good. Lots of excellent finds. I'd argue actually it was the rubbish assembled by Coppell/Millen/McInnes that impacted the club far more than any GJ signing.
  2. Let’s not rewrite history - Pete Johnson was part of the recruitment team who bought in lots of great (often bargain) players. Basso, Noble, Elliot..
  3. I read a similar theory but their angle was that the virus didn't originate in Wuhan but a textile making town that Italy has particularly close links with.
  4. That's odd, what's the reasoning for that I wonder?
  5. Exactly. History will remember the people who stepped up to the plate fondly. Those that stood by and did nothing will be remembered too.
  6. Yeah Neville is a top man. Despite being incredibly wealthy and successful as a player, he's never forgotten his roots. Huge respect for him doing this.
  7. People are just suggesting that it would be nice if the club helped out a few people on close to minimum wage who work a couple of times a week and now face huge uncertainty. The impact on them could be enormous. Yes, no one is 'obliged' to help out like that. We all know that. Doesn't mean it's not a decent thing to do. If everyone took a leaf out of Gary Neville's book, I dare say we'd get through this far quicker. https://twitter.com/StockExHotel/status/1240314212112531457?s=20
  8. Yeah we all know that, but these are unprecedented times and they require unprecedented measures. Being a 'business man' should take a back seat.
  9. Maybe, I think Lansdown is a good man and I'd like to think he'd help out. Compared to the wages of players and other matchday running costs, helping a few minimum wage earners out during these hard times would be a drop in the ocean but definitely the right thing to do.
  10. Don't know about that, it's not a ridiculous suggestion. Depends how philanthropic owners are feeling. Everyone will take a hit to some extent, but people on 0 hour contracts like this will be impacted more than most. I don't think it's absurd to suggest the club might help them out.
  11. Of course, I respect the gesture it's a very nice one.
  12. I really liked Adebola. I still feel he wasn't quite the style or calibre we needed to get auto-promotion in 07/08 (Hull got Fraizer Campbell and look what happened!) but he was a really good player in his own right. One of the best targetmen I've seen play for us.
