Nah I’m done with the club if so. Heard too much shit lately and I’m happy to say it

Saw that club sack a manager on the sideline a few seasons back. Zero class.Better off out of it Gary if that’s how they conduct themselves. You, John &Hus won’t struggle to get into another club. Least you can enjoy some time off &the festive season with your lovely family.??

Why do Senior Officials & Coaches, conduct their business by text message? Happy to shake hands & slap on the back when things are well. Element of cowardice, can’t look you in the eye when the “difficult” chat is needed? If you can’t do it, in my opinion, not fit lead a Club

Absolutely shocked & gutted by this news. Thank you for what you have done for the club and me personally. Please stay in touch mate. I wish you all the best for the future.

People have lost the art and decency to hold a good old fashioned face to face conversation… ?
Good luck with your next move Gary
