Why are we even bothering to discuss this and therefore give it air time.

For once, amazingly, Fenty and GTFC have done the right thing and have refused to comment, we should do the same.

Nothing to see here, we all know what sort of rag the Mail is, no need to comment further surely

Daily Mirror not Mail.



Thank You I Have deleted it now. I was obviously using the journalists principle of ' don't let the truth stand in the way of a good story.'

To be honest they are as bad as each other.
They will only print a story that suits their particular agenda.
Corbyn or May could be found to have administered the nerve agent to our Rusky friend and you’d still get different views from each red top.

The press on all sides is as corrupt as politics itself.   Not fit to wrap Ernie Beckets fish and chips IMO !!


They say that what you don't know can't hurt you.

Lazy journalism from the right wing Mail and the reporter needs holding to account as the paper is now fair game for the stupid article. But it seems the story was sourced from the left wing daily record who disgracefully call him a beast!! But let's not get outraged with with a lefty Labour affiliated paper eh!!


Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Promise a man someone else's fish and he votes Labour.

A few years ago the Daily Mail attacked the company I worked for. I was in the PR team and so dealt with them directly.

They weren’t interested in facts; they just wanted a ‘story’.

They used dirty little tactics like approaching us for a comment at 6.30pm when they knew nobody would be in the office, and then using the line ‘XXX refused to comment’, which made us look bad and suited their agenda.

They also paid a photographer to sit outside our office all day just so he could get a long lens pic of the CEO going to his car, and when I asked him what he was doing he said he’d note down the reg plates of all our employees’ cars in a private car park and find our addresses so we should all be ‘on guard’.

They’re a filthy little publication with zero morals. They broke into private property to get a pic of someone’s office and Harassed an employee while she tried to get into her car.

Sadly they seem to do whatever they please and use every trick in the book to paint nasty pictures of people that generate division and hatred.

I don’t buy newspapers at all any more. I once aspired to be a journalist and I’m glad my career went a different way. There are good journalists out there but Daily Mail types give them all a bad name.

My advice to GTFC is to say you’re aware of the facts and direct them to MJ’s statement online. No more needs to be said.

Quoted from LH
Journalism is dead. I am somewhat surprised that the front of the GET hasn’t featured something similar given the depths they are willing to plumb to in order to sell papers/clickbait.


All you need to be a "journalist" today is a smartphone and a piece of paper that says you have done GCSE Media Studies. Not only will it get you all the absolutely true facts from Twitter, social media and Google. It will even let you cut and paste them and do a spell check. The GT is now full of such people, it is the policy of the owners, the Mirror Group, and the reason why they don't need Telegraph House anymore. Since Michelle Hurst left there is hardly a proper time served newspaper person on the staff.

Quoted from Alfie
Town fan Tom Farmery works for these bunch of cowboys. Often claims to have the inside scoop at Town.

Good to see he's having an influence there.


This was the guy who was tweeting last week the Town players wages!

Needless to say the figures he was mentioning were complete poppycock

Having met him a few times I am in no rush to do so again

The thing about the GCSE media studies is an interesting one - I’ll bear it in mind if I ever need a career change!


‘High’lights of the last few months in the Telegraph include:

-The few weeks where they were whinging about homeless people being a stain on the town culminating in two divvies kicking a homeless man to death at tea time in Town. Obviously then reporting how sad it was.

-One of the reporters being late for work because of the A180 roadworks (anybody who hasn’t been affected by this either doesn’t drive or lives out of town) so they went along the road taking pictures of the workmen standing around on their phones - the day before the work properly started.

-Freshney Place gossip: A giant poundland opening in the old BHS, primark becoming FPs “flagship store” and much much more.

At least a few of these people will have paid a fortune to go to uni to study journalism and have ended up reporting on this dross. I don’t know whether to feel sorry for them or laugh at them.

It is the on line editions of these newspapers that distort the truth. The actual paper editions rarely publish some of these stories as is the case with MJ. Stay away from on line editions .

Well that has stirred things up.   I made the original post with no comment at all for a reason. To give people the chance to comment on the articles without any colouring opinion from me as the poster.

For what it is worth, I agree with all the comments about gutter press ....... but the facts are out there in the public domain. They are not allegations, they are facts to which Jolley admitted and was sentenced. Had the case been in England it would definitely have been more noticed as other similar ones have been.

Obviously there is the question of his openness or otherwise about his conviction. Certainly we did not know about it did we? Did the club? What would Fishy posters have said if this had been published during the selection and interview time? Has it had an influence on his career decisions?

A second thing is about the timing. This was bound to come out sooner rather than later in one rag or another so it is surely better that it happened now than in the last week/fortnight of the season.

Incidentally, what would we have said if it was at another club? We had plenty to say about our friend from Boston, Rotherham, Leeds .... and his dodgy dealings, and we have had threads about players from other clubs caught in compromising situations.

It might be in the past, it might not matter to us, we might think this is completely irrelevant to his job at GTFC but whatever our opinions we cannot just stick our heads in the sand and pretend it never happened at all.
