There have been plenty of occasions when I have been critical of the media and the GT in particular for toadying up to those in charge of the club.

It makes a refreshing change to see a journalist come out and apologise for his part in that and to stick the blame squarely where it belongs.

I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

I do feel for local sports journalists sometimes because you can only criticise the owners of a club so much before they simply ban you from the ground. Swann kicked the Scunny Telegraph out when he thought it was being too critical; the Allams did the same with the Hull Daily Mail and have essentially done likewise by not renewing Radio Humberside's rights.  

At least now Fenty's off Findlater can say what I am sure has been on his mind for ages, without fear of being banned from the place he does a lot of his work.

He did do well reporting on the May scandal but I wonder what would have happened had Loyd Griffith not broken the story in the first place?

Surprised he hasn’t used the club website to release an illiterate rambling that passes the buck and blames everyone from the fans, the scratch on his car, that young lads flag, tyre kickers and ITV digital...

I hope he’s lost control of the club website now .. I never want to hear from him ever again in fact I want him barred from BP for life and hopefully the GET never give him a voice in the future.

Won’t need to bar him, he and his hangers on won’t go anywhere near the place again. Especially now there’s no free meal attached...

The same day that somebody builds a snowman in hell.


Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,teach a man to fish and you give him an excuse for him to escape from the wife and kids for the weekend and drink lots of beer.

The local media are always in a difficult position with things like this. No body’s perfect. We’ve all to a greater or lesser extent gone along with the current set-up, been hoodwinked or just so desperate for success not wanting to countenance the unpleasant truth or fearing rocking the boat, or just plain being loyal to our club.

Reporting on Town had slowly improved in recent years in the Grim Tel, and Findlater played a big part in bringing this regime to its rightful end.

I’d love to know who discovered Alex May’s involvement, just do I can raise a glass to him or her, and give thanks.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Totally echo that, and also highlight he did his bit in revealing fenty for the odious toad he is with his articles on the May debacle.
