    You know, between Fawaz & Marthur - not to mention managers like Platt & McClaren - as fans, we've essentially spent a large majority of the past 20 years paying thousands out of our own wages to serve as a training ground for (mostly) talentless & useless people.

    I genuinely wonder if there could ever be a case against some of them to reimburse us If I ever get to meet Platt/Marthur/McClaren/etc. in the flesh I'll definitely, politely but straight faced, explain to them how much they de-valued the money I spent, and ask them if they are decent enough beings to throw a donation my way.

    Couldn't stand the guy but Nigel also had his role to play. Unfortunately he hired him and kept him but also his vision was always changing which didn't make it easy for which direction the club was going to go in.
    As both you & Wes say though, it wasn't just Marthur's actions, it was the way in which he did things too.

    His entire mission in life seemed to be to spite people.

    Even if Billy had relegated us, I'd fucking LOVE the man just for the fact that he was a major thorn in Marthurs side, and ultimately the "poison" which killed the disease that was Mark Arthur.

    We have essentially been financing the lives of people who we mostly can't abide, perhaps it's us that are as thick as fucking mince.

    Bang on.

    For all the hatred put his way, he ultimately got rid of Marthur and - to a degree - helped setup Fawaz's downfall too.......

    QPR too. He was close to buying them before us.

    It was all about finding a 'sleeping giant' in this league. He enjoyed the thought of getting a club back to where it belongs but it was all dreamland stuff from a guy living in cloud cuckoo land.

    Made one good decision by removing Cotterill (because he wanted McLeish and ended up not getting him immediately) and then it was all down hill from then on in.

    Absolute narcissistic man child who got exposed for the living-off-daddy's-money loser he's always been but never realised.

    Almost left the club financially ruined in the third tier having taken it over on the cheap with a clean slate.

    He got let off lightly from our fan base. The SOD/McLeish/Davies phase was utterly ridiculous, then the Pearce/Dougal/Brazil stuff was just as nuts. Whole club was run on decisions made on the spur of the moment.

    Can't tell you how much it means to me he's not here anymore. Took three years longer than it should have done for him to get on his bike, three very long years that I don't want this club ever to sink to again because honestly I don't think I'd be able to do it again.

    Proud father of the :whoosh:

    When I sit at home alone on cold winter nights, and reflect on what was and what could have been, I sometimes shed a tear to some Alice Cooper and think of Billy.....

    It's all so wrong, yet.....it still feels so right.......I want to kiss him, but his lips are venomous poison......

    Tosspot of the highest order. Let's just rejoice that he's gone.

    Fawaz was a delusional romantic with little knowledge of football who exhibited childish behaviour and believed money could fix anything that was broken.

    He has admitted he failed.

    Time to pick up the pieces and forge a new future.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.
