Bit of a cheek him saying that about Bristol Rovers. Yes they sold players but he spent nearly 1m on Stefan Payne and decent amount on Tom Nichols and both flopped badly.
I certainly have more sympathy with what happened last January. Dosen’t take a rocket scientist to think guys like Scrimshaw and Osei Yaw wouldn’t entered his head for a second in summer transfer plans and then he had to sign them last minute.
You’ve seen with Vale side currently with Mal Benning and James Wilson the calibre he’d have signed here if given the budget.
Think LP was thinking of sacking him regardless end of the season so that’s why he got miniscule budget and walked out.
Who knows by next May it could be decision that in the long run worked out very well for both parties. Good aswell to have at least one opposition down here where they’ll be some edge to both games.
