I think some supporters would let the players "befriend" their wives.
And still say "well he did his best for Town"
Some did their best and I include Tom in this but some DID NOT.
I think the board have taken the right option by letting some "Stars" go and ramping up the wages/signing on fees offered by their new clubs.
I have heard how these so called badge kissing "Townies" wouldn't sign for them lot etc.... Miller, Shackley, Olstrum all went running with the pound signs still spinning in their eyeballs.
How about an ex coach of ours acting as a players agent, he was playing us off against Haven and then applied for the then vacant coach position. You couldn't make it up! Player is now with Haven. The ex coach is still an ex coach.
