Great manager who lied to us....

I couldn't bring myself to applaud when he came back.

all he had to say was "vills is my club etc etc"..i might have accepted that better..

But he came out with 

"I would be mad to leave here"...then off he went.

Second term he should never have been sacked in a simple act of revenge by richards...

Am I a fan - - as a manager yes. As a man who thinks about other peoples feelings? He could get under a snakes belly with a top hat on.

He was once asked, between managers jobs, if he was in a hurry to get back into the game.

 

He said not yet as he wasn't down to his last case of vintage champagne yet. :biggrin:

 

Makes Swiss Toni look coarse.

Thought it was going to be another character assassination like the Francis thread when I saw who'd started it.

Best manager we've had in lifetime by a country mile and I rated Big Jack and Wilko.

Had he of stayed, I'm sure we would have won much more than the Solitary League Cup his team won us.

He signed us some great players and got the best out of them.

I was 15 when he left for Villa, I recall at the time whispers that the move was driven out personal reasons and his Mrs learning that he was struggling to keep it in his trousers, I have no idea if that was true or not and to this very day I'm non the wiser.

Will never forget us winning the cup. It was just fantastic and Ron and his players achieved that. Those years after were the legacy of his work then, and although it was a stroke of genius by Francis to get Waddle to Hillsborough, there was so much we have to thank Big Ron for in that time after his departure.

 

My god, what I would give for Wednesday to be in that position now. Seems a lifetime away but such amazing memories.
