    That's all well & good but only one would put his hand in his pocket.

    What specific promises did Lee actually make that were broken? Did he claim he had a big fuck-off transfer budget? Because in his programme notes for the very first game at home to Ipswich following the takeover, he clearly stated that he was "no Jack Walker", but he did provide the funds for us to buy Walsh, Rosler, and Beagrie several weeks later prior to the old March transfer deadline day and those signings effectively helped keep us up.

    I'll be the first to accept that it didn't work out under Lee the way I'd hoped but that doesn't negate the fact that Swales simply had to go

    Frank Clark is the worst manager in our history, and we have had some right whoppers.

    This man is single-handedly responsible for our fall through the divisions.

    A horrible, scheming, conniving, back-stabbing, spineless **** of a man.

    X2 for his assistant, Alan Hill.

    I take great pleasure in knowing I contributed in him getting the sack and helped get Joe the job.

    At least Ball was a nice man.
