    Bantam Pete is probably a sympathizer.

    I'm eagerly awaiting Kitchens interview. I suspect he's gone for the Andrew Marr approach. Real dirt digging interview with Abbott sweating at the end.

    I'm not a Rahic sympathiser and I understand the pressure he must have been under but he really didn't come out of it in a good way, especially with the fans forum event.

    Pretty sure Abbo is a nice guy but lets be totally honest here - he was an awful scout. I know Rahic dictated a lot but Abbo must take some of the blame for the dross signed while he was there

    In any case, the more tales that come out about Rahic and his ways, the more gleeful I am for giving him a right mouthful when they had the open day on the concourse for collecting season tickets. I was so peeved how badly organised it was, queues a mile long and no cards in any sort of order. After waiting in line and getting more angry by the second, I marched over to Rahic and gave him it with both barrels. He didn't know where to put his face, and did a bit of finger pointing afterwards to get some more staff to help get the queues down. Probably didn't really bother him in the slightest, but it gave me huge satisfaction

    The arrogant dismissive behaviour he displayed at the fans forum never sat right with me, I know there was stress etc but no excuse to talk to people like he did. I’m 28, so didn’t know him as a player but I honestly can’t stand the man after that.

    He was a master of that when he was asked a question he didn't like passed it on to AN Other.

    Macauley Bonne apparently. Interesting. Haven't heard that name mentioned before.

    Nah, it's in Kitchens interview. Apparently we were trying to get the perfect front three of Doyle, Wyke and Bonne. Fell through, and Charlton snapped him up. Possibly could have had something to do with Rahic messing up (or Gregg forgetting to order the pizza).
