    My point is Harding is seen as some sort of saviour when he clearly wasnt. Bates installed the electric fence after he complained about the lenient sentences dished out to some of our fans after the Sunderland riot, he said at the time why should my club be heavily fined when 30,000 people witnessed some fans rioting yet those arrested were only fined. For the record i didnt agree with the electric fence but lets be sensible about it, there was no way he'd have ever tried or got it turned on. The tv ban was because he felt the tv companies were taking the piss with the money they were offering, that was in the clubs interest, look at the money tv pays clubs now that comes from the likes of Bates who wanted more for his club. Bates had little time for the fans? so he didnt organise a party for some of our travelling support in Manchester after City away in 84, he didnt buy 100s of us a drink in a Le Harve pub in the Cross Channel Cup. He didnt give 30/40 Chelsea fans directors tickets after seeing them locked out of Luton during the away fan ban. Yes we were expensive during our dark days but for a club charging high prices for tickets, how comes both the expensive east & west stands had more fans in them than the cheaper shed terrace for most games. Lets not forget his legacy of introducing the CPO for us fans to protect the stadium, something else along with the club that he also saved. Funny how fans say he nearly took us in to administration, hindsight is a wonderful thing, when we were signing world class players in the mid 90s fans wernt bothered where the money was coming from then, we had loads of top class talent we could have sold if it had come to administration, which i doubt would ever have happened given where the club was in the previous seasons, cup winners & competed in the CL only a few seasons before.

    Why on earth would "uncle Ken try to kill us" ? The old MH saved us line again as well, no he didnt he didnt need to, he loaned the club money with interest.

    That lady in the hospital photo used to go everywhere & always visited players in hospital. Her name is/was Felicity, after Newcastle away in the 97 fa cup replay she waited at Harlington until the early hours for the team coach to return which got her a bollocking off Wise because he was worried about her safety. She was one of our characters back in the day, not for any particular funny reason or anything just that she went everywhere & genuinely cared about our players. Wherever she is or whatever happened to her i hope she saw & enjoyed the success we've had, it's fans like her who kept the club alive at times.
