Ok, this might be interesting. I'm creating this thread because Sir Alex's thread was immediately swamped by the ongoing issues some members have with him, and he has with them, which led the mod team to close it. I've had a brief exchange with the mods and flagged with them that I thought it a pity that a potentially serious topic of conversation be cut off so swiftly, and have their agreement to create a new thread on a similar vein - without the focus on whether or not we like Sir Alex.
In case people are wondering, given I've made this thread, I'm neither L, G, B or T, but really don't want CW to be a place where anyone in any of those categories feels unwelcome, or that they can't discuss what is probably a significant factor in their life. I want to make it now so anyone in that category doesn't take the wrong impression from the demise of the other thread.
So, here it is for whatever its worth to anyone. Couple of caveats - obviously James' standards about what is acceptable content in discussion on his forum, with regards to posts of a sexual nature, need to be respected. Second, if you want to carry on a feud with other members, maybe do it in another thread where we aren't talking about what for some is potentially a difficult issue.
