Fair play to him. everything he says about RL is positive. That, in an article in the union loving Mail is a bonus.

Top Liberal shirt as well from Mo. Always used to be the model of polite professionalism as he took my money at Bolton dogs....

Mind you, I prefer him to a previous incumbent of his current role.

'It took me four or five years to make Wigan competitive. Preston is pretty much the same, quite rundown as well. But I'm not on a crusade any more. The crusade to reform rugby worked but I don't think I've got enough time left to complete that crusade in football.'

Like this bit, Preston ain't nowhere near as rundown as Wigan though! rolleyes.gif

Let's hope Mr Lindsay doesn't show the same financial management at Preston as he did at Wigan and the RFL.

There are those on this forum who are too young to know about Lindsay 20 years ago. If there is more to say about "the same financial management at Preston as he did at Wigan and the RFL", then say it.

Well the RFL Accounts were not signed of for a few years after Uncle Mo left, His finacal leacay to the RFL 'appeared' not to be too rosey. (ditto Wigan).

I can accept the latter two, but isn't comparing Mo to Hitler losing sight of perspective slightly?

A lot of very bitter and twisted people in these forums.

Lindsay and 3 directors resurrected Wigan and when he left Wigan the financial side was fine but a bitter personal struggle between Robinson / Whelan and the SL War and the financial drain of a new stand proved costly. However, to blame Lindsay is totally incorrect.

The RFL. Internally no idea what happened but he could claim to have secured a big money SKY deal for the whole sport

If you read the accompanying articles on Preston you would realise that he is making huge cuts / savings.

Which team do you follow and how did he do for your team?

Whilst the Gregory incident was very poorly handled Lindsay dealt with many issues full on so your comment is totally unfounded.
