Agree with this totally. Always was a Palace fan despite what others tried to imply.

He was without doubt foolish (and probably worse) but there was a degree of bad luck. From memory he agreed to sell his company when the shares were worth more than 10 each but was only allowed to sell a percentage of them. Within a very short space of time the share price had more than halved and he hadn't been able to cash out.

claiming he'd led a pitch invasion (when he was out the country at the time?) didn't help..

Noades said afterwards he thought he was a Tottenham fan.

But people at Hillsborough will correct that.

I find myself angrier at him than Jordan.

I guess because while Jordan overspent, he didn't do it in the reckless and foolish manner in which Goldberg did it. And at least Jordan saved us once.

It was corrected many times on here before that but some continued to suggest he wasn't a Palace fan.

Long before that. He was rumoured to be a Spudz fan before he even took over. Never knew for sure though

The mists of time seem to cloud peoples judgements

The man nearly completely ruined us, 100k to Venables just to come to an interview, employing a gangster, using a young Clinton and Hayden as pawns in his game, trying to con people to invest, he was like a kid playing a football director game but with our club, no, I wont forgive him and think his heart was in the right place and all that old nonsense, he was dodgy and well out of his depth looking to show off

Like others have said, his kids continued their private education, he was never on the streets, and to my knowledge never actually skint following his Palace 'experience'

M.G. only met Dave Courtney round the time Palace went into administration. He had received death threats to himself and his family and was asking his advice on protection. He did not know him before this.

1 thing I am pretty certain of he did not come out of it better than when he went in.
Yes, he made some crass decisions, was extremely stupid and brought a lot of it on himself, but he did lose considerably from it.
Now we are past that, there is no harm in finding a small amount of sympathy for the man and wishing him well in the future.

Have you read the court case? - he lied to others as to the actual monetary situation and therefore they were unaware of the risks involved It is also an offence to trade while insolvent - businesses you do business with lose out as you know that you are not going to be able to pay them and they do not know that they are going to lose from it (not might as in a normal commercial risk)- but he has paid for those mistakes now so I have no real hard feelings especially as he has never said a bad word about Palace since (as far as I am aware) or criticised any of the subsequent owners.

I have to say that I always thought he was a Palace fan - still doesn't excuse you playing fast and lose with other peoples money but as said the fact he seems to have learnt from his mistakes does make him seem a more attractive person now although I can understand why anyone threatened by his mate may feel very differently.
