    F*ck knows. You’d think he’d have changed as he got older?

    Loads of stories of his time in Leeds on nights out in past.

    Where there? Other than the incident he was involved in at mill hill which i believe Woody was the instigator i don't know of any incidents that had any kind of racist element.

    Genuiently interested to know if there were loads as i've never heard them.

    Look how quick Brighton & from what I've read Swansea have/are acting. So frustrating. Don't know how much more moaning I've got left in me but an appointment has to be this week SURELY :shrug

    Same

    How any footballer with loads of black team mates and opponents be racist is beyond me.

    I also can’t recall any stories. I remember the wankier element of our fans starting petitions against him coming though so maybe I missed something.

    No denying he was bit of a prick in his younger days but went on to have a very good career without any other major issues, I personally don’t really care about the Dyer incident, obviously shouldn’t have happened but shows he cared. Guilty as each other.

    Obviously a bit hot headed but doesn’t make him a bad person and he has been impeccable since becoming our manager, think he’s only been fined a couple of times and sent off once!

    Good luck to Bilic. Really nice fella, but too nice imo. At the end of his tenure at west ham, our players were about as unfit as I've ever seen them. I think he'll struggle but hope Im wrong

    Are you saying that he can't be racist because he works with black players? If so :laugh:

    Thought I'd put it in here ..

    Chief executive , Mark Jenkins has asked club owner mr Lai for 4.1 he owes the club and has acknowledged the debt but has said he can't pay it off due to government restrictions specifically on sports related investments.

    On another note billic has appointed 2 members of staff, Danilo Butorović & Dean Računica. Looks like Shan will stay on in some aspect

    Still all a bit of a mess really within board and player level

    Slav already having a go at the board regarding incomings. Doesn't sound happy at all, imagine the scenes If he resigns before the season even starts...
    ------
    One of our old local journo who supports the club and obviously still has connections tweeted this ..


    Absolutely no surprise to read this. Dowling is a big problem. We are in danger of having another McDonough situation. Worse, decimating the academy - including ridiculous house rules to p*** off remaining staff - destroying goodwill, interfering with recruitment. Problems await.

    Big issues. Academy staff marginalised, not allowed to use same entrance or canteen as first-team staff. Kids being told they're not important, crass language in front of visitors/agents/parents/female staff. I'm really not sure Dowling is the bloke we want as Tech Director #wba

    And I know people might say: 'Well it's only the academy'. But this permeates throughout. It isn't healthy. Forest couldn't wait to get rid of the bloke. Yet we took him on. Hope we know what we're doing.

    Above all else, recall issues we had under McDonough. Needed a massive overhaul behind the scenes by absent owner. JP just about wrestled the club back onto the straight and narrow. Will Lai & his associates know any of this? Everything I hear about Dowling smacks of McDonough

    If you're only reading the Bilic bit then you're getting it wrong. If we don't resolve issue soon, then it doesn't matter who the boss is, we will keep picking up pieces. Bilic is a good appointment. If we p*** him off, we will p*** off his successors off too. Get it right now.
