Not one of my favourite people, ran up massive debts at Wigan, made them into champions at all cost - he’s one of the reasons why the salary cap doesn’t go far, inflated salaries.

I won't speak ill of the dead as it were, had a vision and certainly changed the game forever - for better or worse is open to your own interpretation. If you're a player, the salary you enjoy is certainly better than it would have been if we'd done nothing I guess as other alluded to.

Similarly, I won't speak ill of the dead but I never liked him and that hasn't changed.

I've never understood why change, progress and improvement requires sacrifice?
