By the same token, maybe we should also never mention David Jack, Joe Smith, Charles Foweraker, Harry Goslin, Ray Westwood, Nat Lofthouse, Eddie Hopkinson, Tommy Banks, Freddie Hill or anyone else that's made any kind of mark in the history of Bolton Wanderers.
Do you get my drift?
Yes I get your drift and it's 'our' site so you (and everyone else) are free to talk about whatever you like but what I'm saying is that most people have long since made their minds up that Anderson was all bad, Eddie never put the money he did into the club - it was all made up numbers by his accountants and that Holdsworth was the bloke that missed that sitter that cost us a FA Cup final but he was alright because he shagged that page three girl.
What's it matter what folk who think like that - think like that?
Who cares if they are ignorant or don't want to be educated to the better?
They've made their minds up years ago and aren't going to be changing them because they read something on here. Christ, most people think we are the oddballs because we aren't like them!!!
Let them think what they like, who cares what they think? I don't.
If you want to dwell on trying to change closed minds then please do so but no one else gives a fig about it.
We are different to most others you and me Bob, we do like the truth, we both stand up for it, even when no one else cares or thinks we are weirdo's for doing so, but where we do differ from each other is that I fought that battle and moved on, you're still fighting it - but there is no one left to fight against, they've all moved on too.
I know we won that battle, events afterwards have proved that, Anderson hasn't been locked up or had his assets seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act, Eddie and his largesse to the club (both in his lifetime and the through his estate) has now become far more widely acknowledged and shagger Holdsworth is now seen to be nothing more than a chancer.
That's the best result we are ever going to get, you are never going to convince everyone they've been wrong all along!
Life's not fair, football's not fair and people on internet footy forums certainly aren't fair, nor are they often reasonable, accepting, willing to change their minds or admit they made a mistake and a million and one other things as well!
FV and their business model is what we should be flexing our minds on, for instance why has nothing been said about EDT's charge being settled, if Sue Davies has waived it, should that magnificent generosity not be publicly recognised, if it was paid in full, then where has the money come from and why settle it now, did it fall due or something? What about the Administrators charge, has that been paid off too, etc, etc.
There's plenty stuff to ponder over, new and untouched things to get our teeth in so to speak!
More fun than just ploughing that lone furrow that you are seemingly doing, I would suggest.
Let's not forget the past I do absolutely agree, let us honour it as well but don't decide to live in it - life moves on even if you do want it to at times.
