Why kick him out? He is a saleable asset. Even Watford are not that stupid.
The amount of people on their moral high horses is actually quite sickening.
He's made a mistake and is currently paying for it. He should be out not long before the start of the season and should be given a chance to prove himself on the contract that the club gave him with the full knowledge of what he had done.
Talking about us being a 'community/family' club is a complete irrelevance as well. If a member of your family or community did what Troy had done then you would support them and help them back on the right path rather than turning your back on them and washing your hands.
Did the same people have the same problem when Marlon fired us to promotion with his long list of more serious, repetitive convictions?
I'm not sure he'll fit our style of play anyway but I would give him a chance. I like many others have done something that I have always regretted. This doesn't mean that should be it, no chances. We've had plenty of players with chequered pasts but don't remember them getting much stick. See you soon Troy. You owe us some goals
I was one of the 472,675 who attended the Southampton League cup game!
Supporters are assets to clubs but all the ones that got lifetime bans after the trouble against scum are not allowed back within a certain distance on match days? They did their time and most were having fights with other men who were able to defend themselves? TD kicked a student in the head while on the ground and Watford will be paying thousands of pounds a week to play at Vicarage Road, Double Standards one rule for players and one for Supporters. Those who stick up for Marlon King, he to this days still denies the last one of his crimes, we try and bring respect to the game and a line of clubs could not wait to give "woman hitter" yet another chance. Big fat Ron one slip of the tongue, will never work in football again, Marlon King numerous convictions and will earn more in a year then most will in a lifetime.
I really don't understand how people on here stick up for these overpaid thugs and Bullies, but it is a forum and everyone is entitled to their opinion.
I bet you wont find many of the Olympic Gold Medalist beating up women or kicking students in the head why they are on the ground, and if they did the sport would wash their hands of them.
The FA and PFA need to send out a message, they earn good money, even in the Championship and say they lose their right to find a club once they have a criminal record.
I may have this wrong but David Haye was banned from boxing for hitting another boxer outside the ring? That send out the right sort of message
TD get rid
Some people assume I think the world revolves around me, which, of course is complete and total nonsense, the world revolves around the sun which shines out of my arse...
If you have any feedback, queries or suggestions in regards to WFC Forums, then feel free to PM them to me or post them here.
Again, my point has been missed. When i use the word "ASSET" I use it in a BUSINESS SENSE
In financial accounting, assets are economic resources. Anything tangible or intangible that is capable of being owned or controlled to produce value and that is held to have positive economic value is considered an asset. Simply stated, assets represent value of ownership that can be converted into cash (although cash itself is also considered an asset).
The balance sheet of a firm records the monetary value of the assets owned by the firm. It is money and other valuables belonging to an individual or business. Two major asset classes are tangible assets and intangible assets. Tangible assets contain various subclasses, including current assets and fixed assets. Current assets include inventory, while fixed assets include such items as buildings and equipment.
In THIS sense, fans are NOT assets but PLAYERS ARE
Let me re-iterate once again my point. I DO NOT CONDONE TROY DEENEY, he has been a fool and has rightly been punished. Let's not forget too that the last time the club said anything on the matter was when they suggested that they needed to speak to him to see if he was remorseful or not. I can only assume given his inclusion in the squad list and lack of any other announcement, that they have done this and that they are happy that he will be rehabilitated and return a better human being.
Ultimately though it is AND WILL ALWAYS BE about money in business. We are a club that loses money year on year and until we become profitable, any owner would be very foolish to simply throw money away.
If you have any queries relating to the above, please do not hesitate to PM me.
With kind regards
which bit of `he`s out of contract in the summer` did you miss ?
explain to us the value of keeping him (along with his plummeting value as he can sign for someone for free in January) versus the value of paying his salary to someone else , someone else who isnt in Jail and is available now...
He is supposed to be a role model for his younger colleagues, who must never think they are above the law of decency.
I was a big supporter of Troy - when few were, however it was unprofessional of him to be clubbing in Brum in the early hours during the season.
To then assault a youngster in such a vicious way is beyond reason.
In fact if he were a member of my family I would call him `a bum`, followed by a good kicking - he deserves it, & he wouldn`t do it again.
Get rid! - the guy is a liability - just like King.
please consider the environment - do you really need to: eat, drink, drive, shop, see in the dark (with proper light bulbs that work), view television, listen to the radio, watch sport, theatre or a concert, take a holiday,visit friends or family, bathe, shave, conduct bodily functions, or work, read this post?
If every employer fired every employee who thumped someone - well the metropolitan police force would be half its size!!
Make an example of him, send out a message, put morals before money, and hope there may not be a next, go soft on him and only a matter of time before it happens again
If Loach had done the same thing I bet there would not be many people sticking up or him, but because TD finished the season on a bit of a high he is now the best thing since sliced bread!
By the way aren't the fans an intangible asset as they generate goodwill that will have a value on the books?
Don't answer that.
It just seems that Footballers are fire proof and there are always clubs willing to give them a second, third and god knows how many more chances.
If TD was a teacher would he be allowed to teach in a classroom again?
