Who is putting this "Jacko went because he wasn't going to be captain," [****!!****] around?

There are plenty of reasons why he went when he did, and that certainly is not one of them! Show the man a bit more respect than that.

As for Bentley? He gave us a great season where he proved his fitness to play at this level. He is not an [****!!****], (plenty of those still at the club.) and he was uncertain as to what to do about re-signing until the day he left. As Wobbly Wayne has said, "what more do you want?"

The captaincy thing is lies.
As Andy Y said, give the lad a bnit more credit than that. If you remember the new captain was only announced after Jacko had gone to D an R not before.
Rubbish rumours like this don't help anybody.

Oh no! That bloke in the pub who has never been to Stonebridge Road has been spouting off again.....

.....THE CAPTAINCY THING IS DEFINATELY B******S!
JACKO TOLD ME HIMSELF.

Besides, if their was so much malice between Jacko & The Fleet as people claim, why does Jacko come to our games still, even some away games?

Or didn't you see him?

If I remember correctly Andy Y plays cricket with Jacko, so I suspect that he got his information from Jacko himself.

Fair enough,the person in my family spoke to Jacko himself aswell,maybe it was a minor reason aswell or a misunderstanding.Point is Jacko was a great servant to the Fleet and long may he be welcome back!

Does it really matter why he left?? Like anyone who is offered a new job, he no doubt weighed up the pros and cons, and on this occasion, the pros outweighed the cons - it doesnt mean he had a problem with ourselves, just that he felt the opportunity must be grasped this time.

The same applies to Benno - we knew that he was likely to be picked up by a "bigger" club - and we got an outstanding season out of him, so we cant complain, especially given his previous injury problems.

Lets forget what happened in the last close season and concern ourselves with the here and now, and the remainder of the season.

Good luck to him.
At least he doesn't have the cup to concentrate on!
