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......

You naughty IJN,stirring me into "quoting figures" mode! Actually,we finished 4th in 1953.Average gate 22138.Southampton average gate that year 16159.And poor old Norwich trailing at 21121! Where were all of those loyal Sotonians and East Anglians when their teams were struggling,sat at home listening to the Charlie Chester Show,no doubt!

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.
