  1. Do you blame him after how he’s been treated? You reap what you sow in that regard.....
  2. Pemberton is Chesterfield’s manager, after they sacked Shez. I hadn’t realised that. Who was the other one, Geoff Thomas? I thought he was from Rochdale?
  3. He wanted two dogs of war in centre midfield and that was Milligan & Henry.... so he wanted Redfearn to move to the right (which incidentally is where he started for us - played well there in the ‘90 FA Cup run).... he bought Olney to partner Sharp, so that meant Marshall to partner Jobson. In his defence, had Redfearn & Marshall acquiesced, we’d have probably been a much better team, but they didn’t, and so once they made their feelings known, I guess he had to get rid to maintain control of the dressing room.... but hindsight is a wonderful thing. I liked Redmond, but he wasn’t as good as Barrett (who started as a LB for us, before moving to CB) or Marshall..... and as good as Adams & Milligan were, Redfearn was a better footballer. Rick Holden said in his autobiography that the players who left were replaced by inferior ones.... and this is what I read it to mean.
  4. I think he’d a lost a bit of pace - after injury - by then.... and the back pass rule change wasn’t something that helped him at centre half, as he wasn’t as comfortable as others bringing the ball out from that position. That’s my opinion at least.
  5. Same as Marshall. If you haven’t listened to the Under the Cosh interview with him, it’s worth it.
  6. Milligan came back in the summer of 1991, McDonald joined in the Autumn of the same year. At the time I was delighted Milligan came back.... with hindsight, we should probably have kept Redfearn in centre mid (Royle wanted him to play RW and ditch Adams) instead.....
  7. It just shows you how pony Scottish football is really, doesn't it.....?
  8. We don't have a particularly large fanbase (currently) - thanks Chris, Simon, Simon, Danny, Abdallah, Mo and BO - therefore, assuming one has even a modicum of interpersonal skills, you'll have met at least one of the aforementioned groups' individuals at least once over the course of your attendance at games, therefore the likelihood of FLG, PTB and Trust folk being 'connected', one would assert is very high.....!
  9. ....if that were the case... he wouldn’t have p1ssed his other possible buyers off in the process.... he either thinks Abdallah/Bassini and/or other nefarious characters will stump up £6m.... and then he’s rid of the problem.... or he won’t pay up the debenture, try to put us in admin again and sell the lot to some other party - Dutch consortium / those circling Bury in their final moments....!?! The only bit I can’t reconcile is why not do that in 2010? Maybe the credit crunch meant there were no outlets back then compared to today?
