    Let he who hath never sinned cast the first stone.

    Actually, we sort of did it twice. Clough and Taylor only lasted about 18 months after winning the First Division title. OK, it was their decision to resign but they'd offered to do that before and the Board had always refused to accept.

    In October 1973 Longson wanted them out and was delighted to accept their resignations. Probably the worst decision in DCFC history.


    As bad as letting Mackay was us actually winning the league for the 2nd time wasn't actually a shock to the football world as we were recognized as a quality team back then thanks to Clough Taylor and Mackay and Anderson.
    Where as Fester have rarely done anything worth talking about in the football world..and all of a sudden beat every billionaire club out there to be champions of England only to sack the manager in charge in under 12 months..less than a season..
    Unprecedented stupid and classless move in my book..they deserve all the stones flying their way.
