I could understand him keeping quiet before the game just as not to stir the melting pot - but has anyone heard anything from him after the game?
If I was a York fan I would want to know his views on the game and may be not talking after the game is taking this too far.
Im sure he is hurt that after 5 years of hard work he has got little thanks from the Darlo fans, but he is manager of York now - I was looking forward to hearing his thoughts on the game.

I read Dave Penney's thoughts.

Amongst other things he said that Styche cunningly left his elbow up to injure their player (the one who went off) and also that their players should have stayed down on the ground longer after getting fouled by us! i.e. act up to cause trouble, so watch out other teams.

York should have won by a much higher margin if they'd taken their chances, according to Penney.

He also said that York are looking to bring in some new players, to liven things up!

Listening to Penney is enough for me to stomach, without Gray blurting on about how many more additions to his squad he will be bringing in.Time to move on now but that defeat still hurts even on a Monday.

Must admit it raised an eyebrow when I read Penney's comment essentially saying the York players should have cheated by feigning injury to get players booked or sent off. Pretty much a comment that could bring the game into disrepute, especially coming from a Director of Football, assistant manager or whatever the hell his role is.

Yes, it's surprisingly poor.

Penney will instruct Gray to put this idea into the game plan - and it will come to pass.

I think you've got that the wrong way round.

The Darlo fans were due a big 'thank you' from Martin Gray on his departure. We paid his wages and gave him near enough everything he asked for for 5 years.

Instead he said we were a laughing stock.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

According to a YCFC-supporting mate, MG has refused to speak to either the press or YCFC's in house web/YouTube team for the past three games, all of which they won. Weird.

My god do they grill him, Ray seems like a pussycat compared to the York lot, interviews would normally last 6-7 mins compared to our 3 mins.

Unfortunately for him if he wants to carve out a full-time management career in the football league he's going to have to accept greater scrutiny than he got with us and even what he's getting at York.

If he's not cut out for that he won't make much of a career for himself.

I don't think Gray has the composure not to court controversy from what he says. I can understand his silence in the run up to Saturday's game, as he didn't want to antagonise Darlo fans anymore than they already feeling.

As the old saying goes, some things are best left never said.

It would have been all too easy for MG to pull off a Salford style hatchet job to antagonise our fans or do what Falky did at Harrogate and begin goading us but he didn't. He turned up took the inevitable stick on the chin and didn't make a spectacle of himself and his York team came away with the 3 points, end of story.

What he does/doesn't do from here on in is no longer any of our concern, all attention now must be focused on avoiding relegation.

Does he have in-house PR at MGFA running his media for him I wonder?
