Hardly "crash and burn". The known faces of the 'Class of 92' don't need the money from the work they do to 'get by'. Dramatically changes the dynamic with an employer who may have been used to getting away with 'exaggerating' when recruiting.
Being able to say no and walk away is very liberating.
The bigger clubs who pay large salaries to their managers have already experienced that power shift and adapted. One might speculate that Oldham haven't?
Some predictable comment on twitter - from a Scouser !
' Paul Scholes, a man with no grasp of the reality of football.
Spent his whole football life at the richest club in the PL, and more recently at his and his mates plaything in Non League '.
There's a 'Scholes/footware/footy' joke lurking in there somewhere, but I've got a f**king COLD, so someone else will have to find it.
Paul Scholes is just a spoilt brat who didn't get his own way so out comes the dummy. The dummy has just bought a 10% share in the club and Giggsy has a hard on because it is lambing season . The Nevilles are so fick it's unbelievable and the only one i have any time for is Nicky Butt who nobody has a bad word about.
