Re: Atkinson and Gregan gone

Am I missing something here? Why was MG allowed to be DFC manager for the last 5 years and a director at the MGFA? Isn't that a conflict of interests? Why would moving to York make any difference? Sorry if I've missed anything obvious. It's more that Atkinson and Gregan were employees of his. It ri...

Re: Atkinson and Gregan gone

Probably the bigger question was why did the league allow MG to become manager of another club and create the conflict of interest in the first place. He should have been the one asked to resign, not Brian Atkinson. Mr Tibbs - The answer lies in the title "Martin Gray football Academy" Gray is the ...

All this talk of "At least we've done due diligence." Why wasn't this done on Sunday? The rush to appoint Atkinson has made us even more of a laughing stock. They'll wind up at York.

Re: Compensation from Gray breaking contract?

For me the main thing the board did wrong was to trust Gray. They, like most of us, believed he had the best interests of the club at heart. How wrong we all were. Not sure which Board you are referring to: the FC Board or the DFCSG one. Because I can assure you, he was not trusted by all members o...

So, basically he wanted yet more money, it wasn't forthcoming (obviously, the last two gates were 1,200!) so he split.
