He was caught speeding, not drink driving.

:lol:

And here was me trying to defend myself from Northbank's claim! I read a forum post it was drink driving, posted that, found a link but never checked what the BBC said about it.

Thanks for pointing that out, I'll amend it. The interesting thing is not so much the charge but the wages he claims he was picking up. Those seem eminently coverable at the Premiership level.

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?

There is a guy who's always  on twitter think his twitter name is Main Stand Saint or similar , who takes the stories and tweets from social media even  although they have been up for a few hours and will tweet as if he's got a scoop with an "I'M hearing " pre-fix to most tweets :lol:

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

(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!

Your name is really Buddist Monk:huh:

Seriously... I thought I was doing a "good thing" by giving information about how he played for Southend and the wages the guy was picking up.

Why is that a "bad thing"?

It's also Chris Powell, not Steve.

Ach, well f**k it then, maybe everyone is right. I'll not bother posting here then.

I'll always have St Mirren at heart, always have. Let's hope for a good season.

To be honest I only did that out of badness because of  the stuff about inaccuracy. I'm not really bothered who posts and who doesn't. If folk don't want to read from someone the ignore button is a far better option than chasing folk off the site (unless it's fuckwits like Dickson).

I have never had anyone on ignore nor ever want to chase anyone off a site (well, maybe a couple like the one above) but it gets to the stage where you completely skim over some posters as you know there will be 'facts' that are not true which completely negates anything useful they have to say. It doesn't take long to take a deep breath and check something or read what you have written before you post.

Sky reporting he is in the squad for tonight
If it's Anton we're referring to I'm getting moist. And it's not the Ayrshire rain.
