Hmmmnn.. yes... indeed.. remarkably well... and... he is frustrated that he never finished the job at Crawley because of ill health too...

...a cynical person might just feel that there is a hint of whitewash & reputation rebuilding going on hereabouts...(?)

Very Happy
I am sure that here is a job tailor made for him at FIFA HQ

Indeed Thad. Interesting shot about people reading the message board as well.

I presume by "finishing the job" he means taking us down as that was the inevitable conclusion.

My only frustration is we didn't shift him a month earlier as I think with a little more time to plan for the transfer window DS would have kept us up.

Still good luck to Journeyman John, our loss will be someone else's gain.

A cynic might say he had the surgery done before he even came to Crawley. Shocked

That's where he went wrong... on the forum we spotted what was not right early on and even made constructive suggestions to address it... he could have done worse than pay a bit more attention to it.

Strangely enough he might not like the message board.. but seems to love the Twitter.... particularly if the subject is Aston Bloody Villa..!

JG is always good value when he has an audience, he belongs in front of the camera and IMHO he is welcome to stay there.

Yes I remember his very first home game when he got the tactics all wrong and had to make a substitution after about 20 mins with us losing 0-2.
