Dave Posted June 11, 2009 Share Posted June 11, 2009 Let's assume for a second that Shepherd's consortium is going to take over. It's pretty obvious that feelings are very mixed on the bloke, there are many people going with a 'better the devil you know' stance but many more who don't want him anywhere near the club. Personally I'm not really sure what I think; Ashley is clueless and at least we know Shepherd can do the business. The biggest decision is made for him (Shearer) and he'd probably be forced to rebuild the club sensibly given our position and the fact he'd be responsible for others' investment. My question for those who are understandably sceptical is this: would you be prepared to afford him a clean slate? Will you be willing to do what you probably would for any other newcomer and give him the benefit of the doubt for a period of time, or will you be on his back straight away? The club is in a totally different position to how it was when he left, and regardless of how you feel he left the state of the finances the fact is he didn't oversee our relegation - Ashley did. Isn't it only fair that he is judged on what happens this time around? Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
