    No, this was slightly less 'moons' ago, and a player from the original United. Good try though, Bert. Don't be dis-heartened.

    Whitehurst would have rolled him into a ball, bounced him around before hitting him for 6.

    Between now and the end of the season I would take that. Probably matters how many points those goals gain us of course. 6 last minute winner and the man is a hero.

    Guess depending on your agenda you can make any amount of shit up to fit it. Personally I want him to score 20 goals and fire us to promotion. Can’t see why anyone would want any different now he is here.

    I've seen no evidence of that. Sounds more like the anti Madine rhetoric machine to me.

    More like the pro-Madine rewriting history machine. He certainly used to hang around with a bunch of Blade-baiting pigs and he was one himself.

    People act like the issues with Madine are down to 2 events. They certainly were not and the baiting happened every time he went out. If he starts hanging round with the same guys this love in will not last long

    That’s the interesting thing about Madine. His recent disciplinary record on the pitch is actually very good. No red cards, 1 yellow every ten games or so.

    As long as he doesn’t get pissed before he goes on the pitch, we should be ok in that respect:-

    That was then, this is now. If you want to let history blacken your future then go for it. Personally if Wilder says he is the man, he is the man. Too many of our fans hang onto every little issue so they can complain about it. Time to move on. Mind you I guess you will be able to tell everyone if he fails that you were right. That’s what matters isn’t it?

    Most people don’t care any more but you keep dragging it up.

    I'd be more worried about only 32 minutes of first team football this season and only 13 bit-part appearances over the last 2 seasons to be honest.

    I don't think he's any improvement on what we have already and I don't think we should've signed him.

    Obviously if he scores the winner today I'll change my mind as I'm what's commonly known as a "fickle cunt"

    41 appearances last season though. Mostly for Bolton.

    No. What matters is team morale, fan unity, winning games and the reputation of the club. I'm not convinced signing Madine will improve us in those respects..

    Wilder's made mistakes before and he'll make them again. However, if Madine behaves himself and plays a part in helping us to promotion I'll happily admit I was wrong.

    Right or wrong is irrelevant. Do you not think Wilder has done due diligence here? He admitted as much. Billy recommended Madine to Wilder FFS. I remember Bromby, Quinn and Geary getting it when they played to start with, Morrison got it as well. So the blokes been an idiot? You never done anything you regret as an adult that required forgiveness? There are a few here chucking rocks who perhaps should think how a little forgiveness could go a long way. We’ve all fucked up. We have all said shit we regret. Stupid things. Impressing mates etc. He’s here now. Give him a chance to prove he isn’t a knob head.

    Honestly, really really honestly, because it appears there are a lot of posters who don't believe this could be true, but I for one have never done anything in my life even approaching what Gary Madine has done in his life. Can we put this particular argument to bed now?
