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

 

I'm so glad I'm on this forum - I do learn some cracking stuff !! :rap:

Or you could go on a search engine as such as "google" as young Mr Hall did.

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.

 

At the time his kind words were offered to you Simon he presumably thought that the club were about to pay him his redundancy entitlement. To me it was a mistake that the club did not pay him this money as they would then have been in a stronger position when more spurious claims were forthcoming.

 

I am not just here to defend a bloke whom I never actually met on speaking terms and who could be the greediest so and so on the planet for all I know, the devil incarnate even. But when the club failed to pay his statutory entitlement this must have fanned the flames of resentment. In following this path I believe that once again the club have shot themselves in the foot and left us with a hell of a bloody mess. Shades of Headingleygate, but with far worse consequences.

It's pretty funny how you all sit behind your little computers with your little minds speculating on what goes on with the players and coaches all season long.No one on here would even have the slightest knowledge of what was in [my brother] Dave's contract. I'm also sure if any of you had any talent and were actually able to sign a contract and have that contract broken you would fight to get what you believe you were owed.

 

But I suppose you are all on the computer writing this stuff and some of the other dribble you write on other subjects because you aren't and never will be good enough to actually play or coach at any kind of rugby league other then very low grade park footy.

Your brother can play footy? Does he get around on a mobokart or does he sit on a swivel chair whilst someone pushes his girth around the pitch? Not sure what todays score was, as I'm not a York fan. You'll have to check an RL website.

I fail to see how a score is 'funny' but if you're trying to get a reaction then you're not gonna get one, we all know we're ###### :)

Dave Woods is a wonderful man. Kind, compassionate, and as honest as the day is long. He even gave his old friends at York a cheerful wave from the dugout! We miss you Dave and would like to extend an invitation to come back and see us anytime.

Anyhoo, must dash. My doctor's here with my meds and I think he's noticed I've slipped my jacket...

I don't know the ins and outs of the recent court case between the Knights and Dave Woods but it seems a bit like six of one and half a dozen of the other to me when it comes to apportioning blame for the outcome. As Peter G. said it appears it was all made worse because the club didn't pay him what he was legally entitled to and sacking a person by email is something I would certainly not like to have happened to me during my working life.

  One thing I DO know and remember which I am suprised nobody has mentioned is that wonderful afternoon at Warrington when we beat Oldham and secured promotion. That was my most memorable day in supporting York for over 60 years and I don't care what anyone else says, Dave Woods was the coach that day and he was our hero and the best thing since sliced bread. Nothing that happened in court last week will ever change that for me! IF the allegations of claiming wrongful travel expenses were true, well of course that's disappointing but it still won't alter my thoughts on that day in Warrington. After all the happenings in the House of Commons in recent times one could almost be forgiven for thinking it was a national pastime!
