    After the sneering article that a footballer has purchased a car we now have have an article by that scumbag Gilbert lamenting Russell Slades overblown reputation.

    We know certain posters constantly criticise Reid and no doubt get their rocks off at this pathetic attempt at "journalism" but the club really should properly ban these tossers and we should boycott this worthless rag and it's on line click bait tripe.

    I'm sure they can and they will. To be honest, I like Andy Turner and think he's OK.

    Oh no, it's clearly just about the owners and not CCFC.

    It is just a bit blatant and desperate that there can't be something good at CCFC.

    Agree with Torch that at least Andy Turner always tried to keep it about football, but that's gone to shit now too.

    i wish theferret would pull his finger out with his news site so all the ccfc can go through there ;)

    Vaguely recall him doing an anti-Wasps piece when they first landed too. Can only assume he's part time mind you, given he seems to be limited in what he actually writes for the paper?

    I'm sure he'll regret this. Should have got a Jag or Range Rover.

    It's pretty much being pushed as negative.

    I used to give Gilbert some support, now I'd cheer Reda on while he's shitting on his face.

    Just reporting the news and opinions in imho. If he had found a positive comment then he would, no doubt, have included that too. Perhaps you could help him in his search and post it here Grendel?

    There are plenty of positive comments about Slade, there are also plenty of negative comments about his other articles today.

    Quick examples:

    Even PSB group said something positive ;)



    Instead, it was:

    Difficult to get excited at any appointment that is made in the present atmosphere. I think that's the jist of it

    He seems to be taking far too much delight in the plight of the club. He's acting no better than many of the Sheff U fans that were being criticised last week.

    It's been like that for months. Him and Perry love it.

    He led people on about his book and let them believe it was big ccfc news, yet they still lapped it up.

    Yeah of course he did and I'm sure if he'd said he was gold dust and a great coup for "our" sisu he'd have printed it.

    Well said. Gilbert and cet are pathetic.

    Personally I do not know why he gets peoples back up, he has an agenda and a grudge, stirs up emotions (that creates click bait) and it is clear to see he dislikes CCFC/SISU. I block all ads on the Telegraph website and only read what is necessary. Would I follow him on Twatter.......... NO.

    Reactions on here only feed his agenda. Better off ignoring him.

    I tend to only read his stories when you're pushing them.;) Excluding the written content debate for a moment, the site never loads properly for me, so I rarely have a look.

    The idea that the CT aren't anti-CCFC is well and truly out of the windows now. We had the comments from Reda and Kieran a while back which showed what they players and staff think of the standard of journalism and what they've been up to today couldn't be any more blatant.

    Also heard it from other departments who don't seem to speak too highly of him.

    I'm surprised they didn't ask some ex players for their thoughts on it, they love the ex player view.

    Oh...

    Not to mention the poll about whether you support Wasps now they're here which sat alongside another PR piece.

    He's a twat... If you tell him he's a twat on Twitter he will block you- doesn't stop him being a twat though.

    The problem is the number of people who do. Well actually they don't even read it they see the snarky tweets and Facebook posts and use that as fact.

    Correct, not to mention how much shit stirring they do.

    Remember the early protests this year where Gilbert was single handedly trying to get them off the ground?
