And if it is the case it will never be confirmed. I think it's naive to think Jim Gannon is/ was happy at running without a left back, or a left sided centre half all season because he thinks it's a rip off. Struggling along with kids who need carefully managing, our best midfielder playing in defence and a national league north back up standard right footed centre half as our left back is pathetic at best. It's showing up painfully now and I doubt very much that those of us who were ridiculed for stating this in the summer all spotted it but Jim didn't. He isn't daft and would have known all of the above.
