As far as i’m concerned he is. Royally fucked up, paid the price, did the time.
Can't fully understand why people have such a problem with this guy.   Yes, he did drink drive, yes unfortunately he did kill two kids.
However,  this was an accident,   he did not go out with the intention of murdering someone.   He held his hands up,  took the punishment,  did his time.    Unlike another fooballer, he did not go into hiding, he did not try to lie his way out of it. Surely we all make mistakes in life,  unfortunately his mistake proved to be a lot more severe than probably most of ours.
Perhaps we have been lucky,  perhaps he has been unlucky, either way, but for the grace of God,  Go I.
As long as he produces on the pitch I'm prepared to give the guy a chance.

We aren't different to any other football fans. Though many like to think we are somehow worse.

In some ways I agree, especially when it comes to something like this, but I do feel that we have a section of fans who are really quick to turn on the team.

For example Walsall away the season before last, the support was really good right up to the point we conceded a goal. Now I know it was a shit season & we ultimately got relegated but just when the team need the fans behind them there’s a (vocal) element that can’t help but get in their backs.

From “the greatest team” to “not fit to wear the shirt” on the back of a single goal.

Yes, there are always some that go too far. And I have been at a few games where its critical we win, yet all of us fans are sat in near silence.

On the flip side there are been times that a 'spark' has unexpectedly got the fans going.

Should we get behind the team regardless - yes.  I guess 3 rubbish seasons and Power's approach to running it his way has consequences.

I know we had a few PDC objectors (fair enough), but the feeling of the club going somewhere (better!) goes a long way. The atmosphere at that time was incredible. Unfortunately so was the cash burn.
