One of the Highlights of DAs tenure for me was watching John Sherdan run the midfield at Hillsborough, for Oldham...

Remember that game. He never left the centre circle it seemed, ran the show. Scored a penalty as I remember?

In my opinion

 

If he hadn't gone, we'd either be where Chesterfield are now, or gone out of business

 

Fancy having to go down to the ground midweek to get a ticket to be allowed into the game on Saturday

 

And no tickets for sale on the day of the game

 

Cretin

Cretins. Another visionary moment for DA. He had mastered the art of Twitter before it was invented ...

To be fair, back in DA's day you only received a light slap on the wrist for going into admin and there was no need to skirt around FFP. You could even get promoted in the same season as going bankrupt, paving the way to win the Premier League title a few seasons later...

that's the STINK that is english football.
