I saw at close quarters how much hard work Ridsdale put in to save Argyle, whatever his motives we should be thankful for what he achieved.
It's a pity he didn't stay because the club is in desperate need of a football man to be the Chief Executive, with James watching over him Ridsdale would have been perfect for that role and I'm sure a lot of teething problems we have seen over the last few months would not have happened if Ridsdale was the Chief Exec.
Unbelievable. So despite the fact that today's announcement reveals what most of us have known for some time - that the man isn't fit and proper to run a bath, let alone a football club - you're still bemoaning his absence from Home Park? If he was here today, we'd currently be hiding in shame because the man who would be running the day to day business would have just been flat out called for 'unacceptable financial practice'. At the risk of a couple of balls-ups over shirts, I for one am mighty glad we're not in that debate today.
Let the scales from your eyes because Ridsdale is about as much a 'football man' as Stan Flashman was: a snake-oil merchant who was in it for himself without recourse to fans, the sanctity of the club, or even the law. Good riddance and I hope the Football League seek his immediate banishment from any football-related role.
