The tabloids also said that about Sir Bobby Robson.
What's to say Powell won't take us to a semi final one day, and become a national treasure.

To slightly paraphrase the Monty Python sketch....

Is this the 5 minute fishing trip, or the half hour, Sally?

Things aren't always black and white, maybe Powell is alluding to the club accepting more instances of what Matty is referring to.

I was no fan of Matty when he was here, one of the worst decisions we've made as a club is giving him a 5 year contract, but this interview indicates that he didn't help himself and the club weren't on top of discipline. If your winger is allowed to get chubby and turn up hungover, you're never going to win the GF.

Powell has butchered this club this year, he's done too much too soon in my opinion and i do wonder if he regrets the speed in which he has disposed of certain players, considering we've finished the lowest ever position.

BUT, if he's clearing out hungover, ill disciplined players or those that contribute to that culture, it's ultimately the right thing.

This doesn't excuse the rhetoric towards the fans that's been spouted.

You know, I always used to think Smith kept Russell in the team despite his deficiencies because he thought he was a model professional. He's always seemed like 'The Nice Guy' - far too clean-playing and the sort of individual who would be a Smith favourite, in the mould of the Sinfield / Burrow / McGuire under Smith at Leeds.

Wow.

Well, as Philth said, maybe this general malaise over training, performances and goals was endemic and needed addressing. Maybe this is part of what Wane talks about with Warrington. I really hope this season was a train wreck for a good season, and I hope Powell can live up to his reputation and turn our fortunes around.

We are all human, whether we earn a living from brain surgery, emptying bins or professional sport. We're all guilty of doing things that have impacted on our ability to do our jobs at some point in our lives. Some find it difficult to learn from their mistakes and keep on top of the things that keep us from the straight and narrow.
