It's the same for Luggy, the man could have gone down as one of the worst, if it wasn't for his 'previous'.

It's OK having a vendetta John, but knowing when to let go is a good thing. :)



No,i haven't forgotten two championships,nor have i forgotten two relegations and the club being in a far worse state now than even when McCauley was "running" it.Nothing to with a vendetta,more a dread feeling that the ground may be being laid for a rehabilitation of the man who actually created the "malignant 7" and let "idiots" like Todd,Gardner and Kagami into the club in the first place.I don't really care what Stapes does with the rest of his life,as long as its nothing connected with Plymouth Argyle.

Stapleton didnt win those Championships unless I am very much mistaken. He certainly claimed much of the credit but most of that credit is due to Sturrock and the players. Stapleton just happened to be holding the reins when the horse won, it could just have easily have been Macauley or even you or me. Stapleton got lucky, of course he worked hard and did a job at the time, but he didnt half milk the old cow after Jones, Foot and Warren left.

Let's put it this way, as I think we almost agree, if Stapelton has anything to do with my club, I won't be attending any matches.

My only point was, that he has a few brownie points whereas the NW have zero.

I'm no fan of Stapleton anymore, although I was, without a doubt and won't deny it.

Do you know what Chancellor? It couldn't have been, because you or me didn't have the bottle.

That really is my point. There are people that talk a lot and people that do a lot.

He put his money where is heart was, you and I didn't (or maybe couldn't).

He deserves credit for that.

People have short memories it seems.

I don't want him or any of the buffoons near my club, and I would destroy any season ticket (IF I buy one) if I thought any of the idiots had any interest. But, let's at least agree, he did something good, albeit, many years ago now.

Gardner, Todd, Kagami, Syan, WTF did they do? Zero.

Utter utter cack.

To give the man no credit for the successes but to crucify him for everything that has gone wrong?! This sort of post says more about you than it does stapleton. Pathetic.

Within the very near future we will see him back and be glad of it, the PB will withdraw and the old directors plus Heaney will row in with Ridsdale to save the day. Prediction, not fact.

It's not an apology. We're all sorry about all sorts of things. It's just playing with words.

An apology carries the spirit of: 'I made mistakes and at least some of it is my fault.'

If any one of them made a proper apology then end of story in my view, but Stapleton
hasn't.

It's worth another Pasoti poll - Stapes back, yes or no? :) Could be a 100%er. :lol:

Every time I see speculation that Stapleton could come back, I ask what he can offer that no one else can. No one ever answers, which suggests to me that the answer is nothing. Why then would we be glad to see him back?

In the same way that some want Ridsdale to be here i would like to see Stapleton back.

The local directors have bought success to the club before, in fact they oversaw our highest ever league position and therefore are the most successful board the club has ever had.

If they have the passion for the club to want to stay involved i would take them guys over the secret Irish anyday.

They all have money tied up in the mess we are in, it is their own money, why shouldn't they do what they can for the club in the hope that they can turn things around for the club and themselves.

It became the in thing to bash Stapleton with some justification but that was then and this is now.

Move on because it is becoming Hollawayesque...... :|

They certainly didn't take the club to it's highest ever league position,far from it.Our highest ever position was 4th in the second tier [twice],the highest under the Stapes board was 10th.
