      From what we learned in the summer I would hazard a guess that what league he's in comes 2nd to how much money he's earning. I'm sure he won't be losing sleep about that or this thread, unless of course he's staying up to tweet about it.

      This is a classic example of a thread that should not be bumped.
      Au contraire, it shows what a dick the OP really is.

      Birmingham in the bottom three - hilarious
      Stockdale in the bottom three - not hilarious

      THIS.

      Harry Redknapp in the bottom three - hilarious
      Tragic clueless owners who replaced Rowett with Zola, then Harry, in the bottom three - properly hilarious
      The keeper who helped get us to the PL, having a bad trot - not hilarious at all

      I can only speak personally, and it is most certainly not "offended" by him, or indeed enjoying his struggles at his chosen club. He was a top servant for us, and played a massive part in getting us to where we are now.

      However, it is a plight I can't take my eyes off, because 1. he courted so much attention with his outbursts on Twitter, and 2. it seemed such a very strange career move. Those two things have him very high profile on the radar, and as such people will keep returning to how this has played out.

      It's a bit like remainers taking any negative economic data and saying "look, see, I told you it was the wrong decision". If the economy/country were suffering as a result of Brexit, it would be crazy for anyone who voted remain to be actually celebrating the country doing badly, but it's inevitable that it still gets mentioned in a tone of "see, I told you that was an odd move." That's kind of the fascination with Stockdale for me, where I thought he should have remained (so on this, I'm a remainer) I'm looking, hoping, to see and understand why he did it, but everything that happens just re-affirms what a bizarre move it was he made.
