Hi guys. Mariner Timsky contacted me first. Maybe he will pass it on when he's finished with it.

Thanks

Macca talking about his contract renewals when Slade arrived, and even though he won 7 awards at the POTY awards, his wages offered went from £650 a week to £300 a week, making him one of the lowest paid pros, only just above the youth at the club.  Macca says that the last 2 years he played for the fans for very little money.  

It's not a dig at Slade, more at Fenty from Macca and IMHO can be related to why a few players left last season, Arnold, Amond, Toto etc, and a warning to expect the worst with Pearson, Collins and Andrew.

Contrast that contract with the one that Lennie offered him!

Excellent summary - spot on i,m,o. Collins (at 36?) should be the signing / player of the year but will this be recognised in terms of retaining him for next season?

That's the one thing that really shocked me and always stuck in my memory after reading that book.  Make me always wonder, when we lose players, about whats really happening that we don't know of behind the scenes.

Roast beef on Sundays, all right.
I go to Blackpool for my holidays,
Sit in the open sunlight."
