I wouldn't normally post something this personal on the messageboard but this was Jim to a tee.

Maybe that's exactly what you should do, sit down and have a pint with him.
You'd possibly then see it all in a different light once you've heard it all from the horses mouth.
That's exactly the point though, isn't it? How can people see it all in different light?
I'm guessing that the vast majority of people broadly agree with LargsTON and CHC on the case: they don't know the truth of what happened and had no personal involvement, they back no side in the case and accordingly they don't view Jim Gallagher or the Trust much differently on the back of it.
However, that's simply not all there is to it, because the behaviour of you and your master is an issue above and beyond the outcome of the case. Regardless of the rights and wrongs of the court case, the way your master has conducted himself - that's him specifically, independently of JG - is absolutely disgraceful and even if the case had gone entirely, 100%, unequivocally in JG's favour, it wouldn't change that fact.
Sitting down for a pint with Jim as you suggest and hearing his whole side of things wouldn't change the facts of how your master behaved outwith the realms of the case. It's not about the rights and wrongs of the case, it's about everyone seeing through his behaviour that Newall is an absolutely despicable human being. Do you really, truly, honestly, not see why people view him (and by extension yourself) that way?

So, how much has the groomer missed out on then?

Remember the time some of the roasters in here formed 'the clique' to hound Ed and me off the board.
We're still here.
Remember the time your sense of self-worth was overshot by such a distance that you thought a group of pals formed and existed to hound a degenerate alky Doctor's very own Smithers off an internet forum?
Don't flatter yourself, lapdog.

For those who have been concerned, a few of us are on the way back from Sheffield just now. We were treated brilliantly by all the lads who also contributed significantly to his funeral fund. There were some Morton fans who came down without any really connection to Sheffield United that left feeling really humbled by our treatment, and particularly fond of our friends from Yorkshire.

Been struggling to process this since I was told last night. I just can't believe it. A guy that I've always personally felt I owe a tonne of favours, given all he did for me. A massive part of my life over the last 10 years, there's very few people I know like him. Absolutely stunned. A massive loss to Morton, friends and family.

I don't know who you're trying to convince here. You weren't there and whoever has told you what happened on the day has misled you. I don't need to be told anything, I can read all I need to know with my own eyes.
1. As I said in an earlier post, it wasn't delayed because of Ernie's hearing problems. That's a complete fabrication.
2. The Trust have tried to have their OWN case dismissed on at least seven (7) separate occasions. Hardly the actions of people more than willing to have their evidence heard in court.
3. The Trust Deed did delay matters but only because the Trust chose to go down that route. JG's Trustee stated that he was not interested in the court case and was happy for it to continue. JG's people put up a bond to cover any losses to guarantee the Trust payment if they were successful. But the Trust chose to make a claim on the Trust Deed instead of continuing with their own action. If the Trust had continued with the action, and won, they would have recovered all of the claim as well as costs awarded by the court. THIS AMOUNT WAS COVERED BY THE BOND. Instead the Trust CHOSE to go with the Trust Deed with the likelihood of recovering less than £200 if successful. For the record, the Trusts claim on JG's Trust Deed was rejected by the Trustee for "insufficient evidence".
4. Not according to the Trusts own constitution, Supporters Direct Scotland and a top Glasgow law firm.
5. There are many people have been fooled by all this. I am not one of them.
Bob knew within days that it was me who pulled the red wig photo. I told him it was me.
I still don't have a blog Davie.
I agree. It was a lovely day in Manchester yesterday, at least it was when I was there early afternoon.
Talking of photographs, what happened to your profile pic?
Time was against me yesterday Davie. I don't drink but I'll happily sip a coffee with you when you're in town. Give me a shout.
That is a wee shame. You could have had people thinking you were tall, dark and handsome, instead of tall, light and seething.
I'm sure it's something two grown men can sort out over coffee.

"There is so much negativity goes on, particularly on the social network sites, that it would be good if people were vocal about the positive side. I can’t really do anything about that, but what I am doing is sticking up for the players because they deserve credit.”
Who's the grass?

Success clearly follows Sir Gav and not just at the bookies.

I got a kebab in Dusseldorf the other year and it was s***e. In my drunken state, I'd assumed it would be like just back home. It wasn't, and I was very, very disappointed.
Reads like a Smiths lyric.

I haven't posted on here for ages, but felt inclined to do so to add my own small tribute to Jim, even though I'm still at a loss for words.
Like many other people, I could list a litany of small acts of kindness from Jim - small acts, but an immense measure of the generosity and huge heart of the man. He'd do anything for anyone and was always brilliant company no matter the circumstances, from words of wisdom to an endless well of weird and wonderful stories - I once jokingly suggested that it'd be great if someone compiled a "Now That's What I Call MacVicar" best of off his stories, but there were so many that'd have you in stitches to ever be able to compile. Nearly everyone who spent any time in his company will have a good memory of him, one way or the other.
It was (and is) impossible not to love the man, a one-of-a-kind personality that'll be missed by so many people in so many ways. As I commented on Twitter regarding the fund-raiser, you can't measure a person's worth in pounds, but you can most definitely do so by how quickly and generously so many people were to make a contribution for him - in many cases, in a small way to pay back Jim's own generosity. That and the depth and number of the tributes paid to him tell their own story.
We've lost one of our very best.

No imagination required, I am me.
No - you're just the finger puppet of some gormless, alcoholic jakey. Sit down and shut up.

Funnily enough, nobody has ever been able to explain what grooming has taken place or even for what purpose.
I guess the masters haven't explained that to all the minions yet.
Fail. It was all set out on the evening when you shat out of attending the home play-off match r attending to The Norseman - spending it wiping drool, tears and snotters from your financially ruined, jakey groomer's chin instead.
