      just bouncing this as i went to see this a couple of weeks ago and found the whole exhibition incredibly moving - not just the story about Pom Pom Whiting but all the others as well. if its still on then its well worth visiting and free.

      Tragic story, did the right thing running away from it all and damn shame they caught up with him
      "I have been in professional football since I was 16 - that's 33 years this summer. I have seen and done it all. In Brighton, I thought that I had found a club that sat outside the norm. People who love their club but are realistic about their club's prospects in dire circumstances. That appealed to me. That is what I call true loyalty. Supporting the club as you have done through the hard times. I am prepared to be here through these hard times and to develop a squad as I have started to do in preparation for the day that we all move to a new stadium at Falmer. I need your support, patience and understanding in the long-term because there is no quick fix. I hope you will continue to give me that opportunity." Mark McGhee, 17th April 2006
