-- lunatic38, TWTD.

"He came across as a decent guy doing his best. It didn't work out, but his comments over recent weeks have been dignified. That counts for a lot."

-- Tractorgirl, TWTD.

"I think he should stick to his true vocation in life, the one thing that makes him happy, walking the dog!"


"Yet another manager sacked, proves that ITFC is now a sacking club. Soon to be 3 managers in less than 2 years." -- Simon Says, TWTD.

"A great day for the club. If we were a sacking club he would have gone last season. He had enough time to turn it around, failed so he paid the price."
