Interesting but I've seen nothing that suggest that he isn't
There is another thread on SVH started by me. The was based on an article that initially said PVH was SVH's step dad.

Later, that article was edited to remove the step bit. IIRC.

I’d be up for signing him just to resurrect the Tom Ince „Your Dad‘s a ****, and so are you!“ chant.

On reflection, and I wasn’t old enough to understand what was going on at the time, I think PVH had legitimate issue for being upset. Going on strike was a terrible way to deal with it, but if he felt he was given no other choice then it is what it is.

I feel the same, the older I got Id be fairly happy of a player went on strike because we sold MGW, Brennan, Awoniyi and replaced them with players nowhere near good enough. Shows they actually care, of not a bad way to go about it.

If my work fired everyone in my account team and increased my target to include everyone else’s plus my own, I’d probably take them to court for constructive dismissal.

I still believe it was PvH's right, having been given certain assurances prior to joining Forest that were simply not abided by by the Club.
When the employer behaves wrong in terms of the treatment of the employee, it is the employee's right to withdraw his labour.
If that right is removed, the business owners will ride rough shod over the backs of the employees with impunity.
Brothers, we cannot let that happen!
Power to the people!

So he's entitled to strike because he got upset about the way the club conducted it's business, but then left everyone else, players, staff and fans to try and stop the club getting relegated. Selfish prick.

I didn’t say he’s entitled to strike, I said I understand why he did.

other than forest, which other clubs had he gone on strike or create problem ?
He did say the following just before he left Celtic.

He eventually left Celtic over a wage dispute towards the end of the 1996–97 season, stating that the reputed £7,000 a week rise he was being offered might be "good enough for the homeless" to live on "but not for an international striker.

52 goals in 84 games is pretty good though.

PVH was a colossal warnock who shit all over his team mates & the fans that paid his wages by going on strike

Nobody disagrees that club was shambolicly ran by a bunch of shysters but they met their contractual obligation to PVH yet he didn't meet his to the club or his moral obligation to his team mates, manager & fans

Dave Bassett was a good bloke & PVH chucked him under the bus

I've no issue with Forest signing his lad because the sins of the father ect but I'm sure most fans would make PVH extremely unwelcome should he return even as a spectator

Absolute snake

Personally I believe he just didn't quite fancy the PL gig

At that time I was pretty much constantly either pissed or high so it's all a bit hazy but I do recall being more angry with the club than I was with PvH
