Drewe Broughton

Post by yaccly » Thu Mar 21, 2019 7:21 am

Just watched a recording of Harrys Heroes: The Full English and former striker Drewe Broughton made a cameo appearance.
Was brought in to have a conversation with Paul Merson as his gambling issues were starting to take hold again.
Broughton was titled as ex-addict and addiction counsellor.
Quoting Wiki he played 6 games scoring one goal in 2011/12 Conference season. A massive list of former clubs.

From recollection, it was when we were in administration and he helped us out by playing for nothing.

i think hes into sports psychology now, helping players deal with the pressures and dark sides of being a footballer.

I think you're right. I remember that he put a lot of effort in, lots of movement - but he just didn't quite have enough of what it takes to make a difference.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Yes he helped us out and wasnt very good but despite the fact he was doing Craig Liddle and us a big favour he still got called worse than shite by some.

Probably because his performances were worse than shite.

Regardless that he was doing it on the cheap (we were paying his expenses, so I was told), it doesn't change the fact he was useless as a player. There was a reason he was playing for peanuts with a team in the National League relegation zone.

I've never seen the ball just bounce off someone so much. And Theoriginalfatcat, you must be thinking of someone else - he could hardly run, let alone get in a scoring position.

This, right here ladies & gentlemen is gratitude.

For a club that was struggling to name a starting 11, let alone 16 in a squad - I am forever grateful for the likes of Drew Broughton & Neil Wainwright who come to the clubs aid when called upon/needed.

What an absolutely ridiculous statement, even by your standards gramps.

Broughton actually said that his particular issue was a sex addiction.

I'm perfectly grateful he turned up to play for us. But it doesn't change the fact he was terrible.

The idea I have to change my assessment of his abilities because he was turning up to play on the cheap is nonsense.

I can be grateful he played for us and think he was terrible at the same time. They're not mutually exclusive.

So with all due respect Andy, you're the one being ridiculous here by demanding people ignore Brougton's lack of ability, just because he was happy to play for peanuts.

Gramps is correct in his summation.

His performances were comically bad.
