Quoted from Hagrid
well now the tesco rumour has done the rounds hasnt it

I got told Tuesday he's been told he an leave the club

Who knows!


Heard the same, although I haven't heard the Tesco rumour. Have heard he has passed his qualifications to become a PE teacher and is probably looking at a career change.

Also heard that there was some disharmony in the club over the behaviour of the younger players and the Sears incident, which involved three of those younger players. There was a bit of handbags at the Christmas do apparently and it all started after the Bromsgrove cup tie, which would explain loss of form and players suddenly missing from the team.

Sounds feasible.

For me, Macca is not the first-choice keeper.


Seems that Hurst feels the same.

can't see Macca going now - there's still some testimonial things to be held , so think he will sit tight on his very generous contract until it finishes in May. It's his last big payday - as he will find out if he becomes a newly qualified teacher!

certainly going to save a shed load of money once he goes.As I've said before I'm sure we will find a better keeper for about half the money James is on

If Macca has qualified as a PE teacher that’s great but he beat sit tight because he’ll not see a wage packet like he gets now again…

For all the promised transparency, there seems to be a lot of rumour and salacious tittle tattle about.

That’s just football though, ‘innit? Not many, apart from those perhaps who are either part-time or who have invested their money very wisely will go into earn more than they did from football, post-retirement.

He’s 33 in the summer - if I were him I’d be doing everything I could to eek a last couple of years of full-time football somewhere, before maybe finishing up and doing another 2 or 3 years part time-whilst setting-up a new career.

I suspect he’s done pretty well though for a player who’s never played regularly for a side finishing higher than 14th in League Two.

could probably combine the 2 - am sure he could get c£500 p.w. playing part time, so doubling his teaching wage!

Agreed…if I were him I’d be certainly eeking out for a couple more years. He’ll never earn the same money again but in ten years or so he could be back up to a wage he thinks is decent…

It’s all very odd though, and seems the unasked question in interview…

You can't be transparent about a rumour that could well of been made by a 12 year old on facebook....
