It's a real struggle to see why he thought Bretherton was 'no good'. Not the flashiest player, but a hugely consistent and dependable professional who rarely has a below average game - never mind a poor one. He's a thoroughly pleasant chap too, and very unassuming by nature.
Mark Sawyer's chequebook put us in the record books. Jowitt just bullied them along.
Personally I think he did more harm than good over the time he was in charge, alienating decent players whilst keeping cronies in the side. For example I would much rather have had Bretherton at the club all of those years rather than across the valley after he was told he was no good and not wanted. There were many more.
Goulding's part in this is the most hilarious. I quote; "Imagine how the Dewsbury forwards will feel if they have to face him!". Indeed, Bobby. I bet they'll be truly terrified.
