From reading the Press this looks like a serious situation for the club all the talk in the article of bankruptcy and uncertain futures etc.Hope it's not a case of here we go again.

This situation is ridiculous, the future of the club put in doubt for £12,800 ? Did the club not look at the costs involved before hand, we would have been better off paying him what he wanted and saving ourselves £67,000.

Makes me laugh that he was claiming travelling expenses for travelling to & from Gateshead , so all the while he was running The Cross Keys & previous to that The Fox & Hounds at Copmanthorpe he was going home to the N E every night , rather think he'd have been in York , greedy so & so !

Read the quotes in the story about the four players we have signed next year. We are not going bankrupt.

Of course we did. He was offered a payout higher than the judge awarded him.

Maybe it felt like he was travelling that far because he is a rather large gentleman. (Don't want to say fat, that's mean)

Pyrric indeed. If I remember correctly, I think the quote from pyrrus goes "Another victory such as this and we are undone"

I posted at the time that the MANNER of Woods sacking was wrong and my fear was that the bitterness caused by "the email" would come back later to bite the club on the bum. It seems that the club, in failing to pay Woods his redundancy entitlement, fanned the flames of that bitterness and caused further resentment. 

 

It appears from the piece in The Press that Woods sensibly had a "no win no fee" agreement with his solicitor. With no similar guarantee the question must be asked as to why the Knights would risk the future of the club by going to court and risking incurring massive costs?

 

As for Woods still claiming that he was entitled to his championship survival bonus when the club clearly avoided relegation by default, he was either taking the p!s or his bitterness got the better of him!

Maybe it was woods greed that took it so far. The fact there was a figure offered to him,for some reason never took it and let it go to court maybe be thought he was worth more than offered. Thing is he's proberbly come out with less than offered,but because of his greed he has put the club at risk.

When he was first let go by the club, he actually rang me to thank the fans for all their hard work in supporting and helping finance the squad, saying we were great supporters etc and to keep up the money raising stuff to help the club prosper. Well Dave, we're all going to have to work four times as hard now to even survive you greedy, money grabbing get.
