    Stuart said.....
    • It's quite simple (!) - had a long chat with JV and nearer it got to coming back he became more negative
    • He's got young family, lives is Merseyside, 4 hour round trip, sounded like he didn't have appetite for travelling
    • Nothing to do with Bradford, it came down to location
    • Did we want him? 100% but he wasn't committed and didn't want to be here
    • We have some positive, young, impressionable players here now so it was for the best for him to go
    • JV was honest and open, he didn't want to play for us
    • People say let him rot in the reserves but people know he's our top paid player and what good would that do for us? (irrelevant point given the salary cap)
    • People saying it was clear JV would move on and in last week/ten days we thought he'd go
    • In last two weeks we've tried to get some strikers in but coming down to league 2 is a stumbling block
    • Question - couldn't you have demanded a transfer fee? A - there's no one in division 1 or 2 that could have paid a fee and the wages he was on. No one was going to pay a transfer fee. (except we did for Watt!)
    No questions on impact on salary cap at all.

    Hopeless interview.

    Yes but it's Stuart so how can you criticise McGod?

    I can criticise the interviewer as well!

    Shocking he couldn't ask about impact given the new salary cap.

    The player was McGod - the manager is a sackless mug.

    Thanks. But that's at least 10 separate posts' worth.
