Shame. I would have liked to see him back at the Daggers. Unfinished business and all that. I also think he could have kept us up this season. Obviously he isn't asking for much money at Ebbsfleet either. Missed opportunity?
Unfinished business? Crikey, I remember the mess he got us into, the Pipers, Jimmy Jackson, Leon Braithwaite, the 0-9 Hereford game.

...and that's to say nothing of the Fitzroy Simpson debacle.

I remember the pipers they were like a comedy act!
Jackson wasn't awful just never as good as everyone said he would be and braithwaite had some good moments! Really enjoyed those days. Wouldn't want them again though ๐Ÿ˜‚

For the youngsters here, what was the 'Fitzroy Simpson debacle'.?

To add to that: the FA eventually closed the case saying there was โ€œ a lack of corroborative evidence.โ€ This after 9 months + of less than transparent activity or lack of. So the case was unresolved, an unsatisfactory outcome for all parties involved. It left many of us with a sour taste. It was unfortunately at a time when some of our players suffered racist abuse from the terraces.
As to the general matter of wanting former players/managers back at the club...memories are so short in football!

Braithewaiteโ€™s had some good moments? I recall only one, when he left.

I think the home defeat against Gravesend (?0-4) which ended his reign was worse than the 0-9.
