He's still getting flak on here T. That's why people should give him some slack. The fact that he's not with any other club says something. If I heard he'd got cancer I'm surprised others didn't know. I certainly wouldn't make that up but you know as well as I do that, whatever I say on here, is challenged.
TommyCraig6, 28/07/2020 at 11:13


Yes, he's had flak as a poor signing, but I'm pretty certain that of anyone on here had known with any certainty there was any inkling of him having had that godawful illness, then there would be wholehearted sympathy for him.

Nope, they've never mentioned it. I can take the criticism as it is often warranted, I'm outspoken and honest, you should try the latter rather than make up claims of cancer about ex players and then blaming this site for it being kept quiet. It's quite odd.

Absolutely, he seemed to not have the stomach to put the graft in to get a game either and cried off hence the flak he got on various platforms.

HoylandOwl, 28/07/2020 at 11:38


He was a poor signing because he didn't play much at all. To be fair to him also, he wasn't given many starts so it was difficult to establish himself. Perhaps, one day we'll actually have a settled team. Until that happens and we have to rely on loan signings we are going nowhere.

I have to admit, I'm sure I read somewhere about Abdi having cancer.

It must've been on here, because I don't read Owlstalk and it definitely wasn't in an online newspaper report.

I think it went hand in hand with the whole 'golf course' story / rumour. Basically, I didn't take any of it seriously. And I'm not even entirely sure why.

As for his playing time, I don't think he was played in his proper position often enough to make a positive impact. Remember him playing wide right early doors (excellent goal saving block in the 0-0 at Norwich) before disappearing. Lovely goal at Forest later on. That's about it!

As I said I've never heard and I usually pick up on things like that, easy to make up rumours in this day and age which is then fuelled across social media as gospel.

Then it becomes the truth.

Reading through these posts it's clear Tommy has heard something to suggest Abdi has cancer, how concrete that is only Tommy knows but I doubt he'd come on hear and say it unless he believed it to be true, Knowing his posts I don't think he's a liar, so it comes down to how reliable his source is, given the lack of media coverage of it. Reesh is right, the club would have had insurance so a couple of comments Chansiri made at forums would seem odd if they were going to get some money back for him.

There's no need for abuse though, and definitely no reason to kick him off here, he's posting what he believes and whilst it's an incredibly sensitive subject to post about, the premise of his post was that Abdi deserved some sympathy, ie it wasn't a malicious post. Most of us have posted something on here that we've heard in the belief it's true and subsequently found out it wasn't so even worst case don't pile in on him, please. 

Of course there are cracks, that's how the light gets in.

Stevie May? Sorry Mr Bricat but I can't agree with you on that one.

He came in, scored a few, missed a few more, hit the woodwork way too often and was wrongly flagged offside on a number of occasions, virtually halving his actual goal tally in the process. And, at the end of the season, we punted him for a profit. How can that be deemed a mistake?!

We overpaid for Stevie May as we got drawn into an auction with Rotherham.
If fat boy hadn't stuck his oar in then we probably could have had May for around £500k or maybe less.
At that price he wouldn't have been such a let down, more a punt that didn't work.

Signings we had all but secured but were thwarted at the last minute ; Dennis Law and Harry Gregg, and our failure to strengthen Catterick's side becoming a truly great one and laying the foundations for a successful first class future refusing to let him sign Joe Baker. We have not been too clever in the transfer market sometimes. Catterick mentioned later that Baker would have been the first of a few quality signings he had in mind but it made his position untenable. 

Fuck 'em. This city will always be ours.

I thought Mark Pembridge was decent for us, Magilton, I felt was the right player at the wrong time. Sonner was not good, but he was a free I think. The issue that all three of them had was that they were just ‘ok’ premier league players.
