God this feels cathartic

The whole purpose mate.

We get to unburden our souls whilst at the same time creating a virtual memory box of shitness as a goodwill gesture/heads up for the folk at the next door he darkens.

Love it

Following up a 0-3 home derby dicking with a 0-6 home defeat to Liverpool a week later. That was fun.

Spending money on a report to prove we shouldn’t try in the cups.

The fans in these 13 years that lapped this kind of thing up.

Playing Gael Bigirimana right wing in a Europa League quarter final.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.
The are both white, both intellects, both middle class, both the typical 'people who would have thought could never do such a thing ', all traits of a Psychopath.

Ashley apparently being 'furious' after 2011/12 because the Cisse signing had been a waste of £10 million (for not getting us into the Champions League).
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.

- being found guilty twice in court for being t***s
- Sports Direct Arena
- club shop absolutely desolated
- making die hard fans turn away from something they love
- Alan Pardew
- Joe Kinnear x 2
- Yohan Kebab/Charlie Insomnia
- 'what Rafa wants, Rafa gets' yet completing doing the opposite
- whiteying in a fireplace
- getting rid of the singing section as they were nasty about him

The worst thing for me by far was watching Ashley do every single shitty thing that he did, then failing to get the large majority of match-going fans to do anything sustained to fight back against him, despite him being universally loathed.

Every single terrible thing you can list that Ashley did is imo compounded by our acceptance of all of those things where it mattered, in Ashley's pocket.

Trying and failing with what felt like every approach to convince supporters to even try things to force him out was really frustrating and probably changed my relationship with other fans and the club forever tbh. For me that's the worst thing he made happen.

And then promptly throwing the poor f***er directly under the bus afterwards. Great management.

Demanding Rafa jointly sign a statement saying how happy he was with the Jan 19 transfer window and Rafa refusing :lol:.

Club releases a statement the next day anyway, without Rafa's involvement.

Imagine needing to put out statements that you're happy with the transfer window man, absolutely mad. Just do a good job FFS.

Yeah, just an example of the horrible disregard of anything representing quality, history or culture. Even the new font is s****.

As we've seen there's too many to mention but the whole Jonas saga probably sums him and his patsy staff up best. Simply callous individuals with little regard for anyone other than themselves.
