    The guy is a prick, there is no mistaking that.

    he’s done some horrible stuff. Far worse than Evans grabbing his genitalia…… but he did get Brizzle up and knows what is needed. He calls a spade a spade and wouldn’t dress things up and churn out the generic template interviews ala his predecessors.

    So that’s why we never see them both in the same place at the same time ;)

    Maybe there was a desperate phone call from Flynn last night?

    We could very, very, very easily turn down John Terry

    Even if it’s true, cancelling second interviews is entirely professional and the way it should be done anyway. What’s the point of interviewing people when the interviewer /s know they are just “going through a charade” . Word soon gets round in The League Managers Association.

    “I was offered and accepted a contract on Friday so why the feck did they interview you and three others four days later!

    See the point? Thoroughly professional and frankly ethical business practice.

    But it has lead to a hell of a lot of people just making up scenarios and then getting outraged at Sparks doing a thing they've literally just made up themselves that minute - has been qute funny to watch

    I never said it wasn't. Not sure what your point is.

    Like I said on a previous post, Alexander would be a terrible appointment.

    Sparks hiring him would mean he's learnt absolutely nothing from the Adams debacle. A combination of terrible football and a terrible personality is not compatible with this football club and will only end in disaster. A managerial appointment is more than a CV and he doesn't tick any other box.

    I asked an MK Dons what he thought of Alexander. I'd post what he said but don't want to get banned!

    If we as a supporter base don't like Evans or Barton why would we like Terry? He has a chequered past too !
