  1. I think the vast majority of fans will wish Deano nothing but the best. He is a good bloke who unfortunately was thrown to the sharks with us. I hope he does well
  2. His LinkedIn profile says he’s the MD. No major surprise he can’t get that right either then. I personally think he has very little contribution to anything at the club. He has a senior role to justify a high salary, for tax purposes. SL knows how to play that game that’s for sure
  3. Jon Lansdown is the Managing Director of the club and the only thing you can think of that he’s ‘managed’ is the irrelevant logo.
  4. He left us in a much better position than he found us. He’s become the scapegoat for everything bad that happens at the club when in reality, beside all the hysteria on here, he did a decent job. Who’s next in the firing line!? My bet, and perhaps more deserved, is Jon Lansdown, who has literally gone AWOL.
  5. I’m not suggesting anything. I’m stating the fact it happened. Then a few days later the club signs a convicted domestic abuser and the only word out the club on the topic is from Pearson who says that he ‘believes very strongly in giving people a 2nd chance’, and feels very strongly ‘In not making politically correct decisions.’ - well great, thanks for clearing that up Nige. All is forgotten then.
  6. Well you can’t pretend it didn’t happen
  7. Well that’s a rather depressing way to live your life. Positive change can happen if you stand up to things you believe in. I’m sorry you feel the way you do. For me, saying he deserves a 2nd chance is missing the point somewhat. I completely agree that everyone deserves a 2nd chance, even those who have committed the most serious of crimes, however you have to show you deserve that chance by owning up to the mistakes you made and implementing changes in your life to ensure they don’t happen again. Maybe Simpson has done those things in private but his actions publicly were to plead
  8. Am I missing something? What did he say to make those that disagree with this change their minds? The fact he thinks he deserves a 2nd chance? Great. That was already fairly obvious by the fact he’s signed him. Where does the club draw the line on violence against women? I wonder if Sesay will deserve a 2nd chance in a few years...
  9. I agree. IMO if either Downing or Simpson took the job on a part-time basis while continuing role at City it could only be a positive. The contacts they would make and the exposure to the best young players in the country would only help with our recruitment and the development/assessment of our own young players. Like you say, I doubt any club would agree to it though
  10. Club still haven’t responded to my email addressing my concerns. Maybe they will in time but all very disappointing so far
  11. And that’s ok is it? When you say people like me, what do actually mean? People with values?
  12. How do you suggest I do that? Tbh I have more of an issue with City as they’re the ones I feel let down by.
  13. It wasn’t an isolated incident
  14. You’re quite difficult to interpret as you constantly contradict yourself
  15. Maybe it read it and you can answer your own questions
