The Gus thing happening? From a Queen’s Park point of view it’d be a huge blow.

Gus himself mentioned earlier on that permission has been given but it's a good bit away from being agreed yet.

He's yet to meet Oran Kearney and get a feel for him or indeed the situation with what the role itself entails.

Will likely be a week or two if anything does happen.

Poor show by gus, took a lot of young guys to the club this season and now bailing out on them at the relative start of it, the young guys have played out their skin for him as well, if it's a money thing then Qp should have matched st mirrens wages

Also the most inaccurate poster on P&B. Never checks anything he claims as a fact before pressing Return.

Is he St Ricky from Bawarmy?

Just assumed he’s the Supras chap that used to post on here.

(Edit: I shat the bed by being inaccurate in the very next post. You simply couldn't make it up! That said I'd still contend I'm not the _most_ inaccurate! ;))

And for the rest of you, not that I should need to but I can happily confirm that I am not an alias or anyone who posts on B&WA. I've had my account on here for years!

So in an attempt to "give something back", I've gone on a little hunting mission regarding Ferdinand.

For a start he was done for speeding last year, which fair enough is a bit naughty but the interesting thing is that according to court papers he was being paid £690 per week while at Southend. That doesn't take into consideration any bonuses or initial singing on fee of course. It's reported several places but here's the BBC.. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-41172265

Going by the consensus of posts on their forum https://www.shrimperzone.com/forums it would seem that he was excellent in the first season, and was given an extension on his contract based on that, however suffered injury at the start of last season and had some personal issues, both of these things apparently kept him out of the team (although Soccerbase doesn't really show a gap:  http://www.soccerbase.com/players/player.sd?player_id=34292&season_id=150) and when he did return the general comments were that he was not the player they saw the season before.

Phil Brown, yeah that Phil Brown, took him to Southend but he was placed on gardening leave at the start of this year. Here is a statement from the club: https://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/2018/january/club-statement-regarding-phil-brown and Steve Powell took over with Ferdinand featuring in 9 of the 14 games left. He was still under contract with Southend, but the club agreed to mutually terminate his contract after no-one came in to buy him during the recent transfer window.

Here is the official club tweet: https://twitter.com/i/web/status/1035524626821070848
