I'm prepared to give Stapleton some credit for being prepared to let us know his version of events though the name dropping & 'it was him not me stuff' doesn't do much for his already tarnished image. If what he says is true then the Japanese & NWO factions somewhat disenfranchised the locals but I still struggle to see how he can expect to deny being at fault for taking his eye off the ball so spectacularly. Stapelton was instrumental in bringing about one of our most successful ever periods after the trauma of Mc666 & if he could just fess up & apologise for his part in the gross mismanagement at Board level that has now crippled the club I'm sure many of us would be more forgiving. If further instalments are forthcoming on what went on they'll be interesting from a historical perspective but they won't change the fact that Argyle nearly went out of existence whilst he was supposedly in a position to influence what went on. He will always be linked with the 'malignant 7' tag given to our previous Board for what they've done but perhaps, in time, he will be viewed with somewhat more affection than even Mc666 manages nowadays.
