Ardley was one of the highest earners at WFC. He wanted to continue to take the Koppel shilling but they kicked him out [Link]

Can't blame him for wanting to stay but let's not rewrite history
wow I didn't realise fans were privy to such details on players contracts back then - I must have been drinking with the wrong crowd

surely your not making that up KD
Steady on, Riz. Ardley left because WFC exercised the get-out clause on his contract relating to relegation.

Booted out
Ardley was the only player who came over and clapped the fans .last ,proper game at Selhurst , he also threw his shirt in the crowd . That summer he moved rather than be part of Koppel and Winkys dirt. He's a Don and loves the club

David Connolly came out in support of us as much as he could have done whilst under a Koppel contract.

I don't remember any players who were in the squad at the time making comments at all only ex players

oh and Kyke - just telling me I am wrong isn't proof
In the event that we win the case against the EFL (on the basis that not mentioning someone can't, by any reasonable interpretation, be considered to be "unfairly criticising" them., which is what the rule refers to), I would expect the EFL to change the rule again to get us by explicitly saying (for example) "you must put the name of the opponent on the cover of the programme (or similar) - in many ways I wouldn't care then as we would clearly be acting under duress and not acknowledging them of our own free will.

Ardley was definitely at the first CCL game and did come over at fans United day. Plus was the only one who gave a Fuck when we got relegated. I think he wasn't initially totally against MK but not sure if he actually said it was a good idea

if that is to me - which bit am I wrong about - I asked a question and then told you what I remembered - when did NA say that ? I really don't remember

did he say it - I seem to remember Fashanu did - and Vinny wasn't totally against it - but I don't recall any others openly saying it was a good idea

[10.lo.gg.ed] 
NA was the first if not the only player ehop came over to us at the fans united match and he also came along to the fist CCL game at KM - happy to be proved wrong
A potential solution mentioned by someone was to have a cover that can be ripped off with another cover underneath and a disclaimer inside the programme But I'd still rather we told them to stuff it
16th Jan 2018 16:28:18 
[85.lo.gg.ed] 
I think I'd enjoy ripping off that cover but anyway it is academic because we are going to win this.

Happy to put whatever the EFL ask us to wherever the EFL ask us to provider the EFL accepts responsibility for any subsequent trouble at a match, however unlikely that may be.

Our management team don't give a shit and all the 'NA was misquoted years ago when he said the MK move would be a good idea ' is total bollocks
16th Jan 2018 16:13:06 
[213.lo.gg.ed] 
He said it . End of
Strange situation now is that as a club we won't put MK Dons in print, and our directors won't accept their hospitality or even in most cases go their ground, yet our management are happy to be all cuddly with their management and players. Bit of a contradiction.

Bradford City are often referred to simply as Bradford even though Bradford Park Avenue in the National North.
This new rule seems to have been put in place to rein us in and do what we are told. If it only applies to us can the EFL be accussed of harrasement and bullying?

I wouldnt be impressed if we got fined continually for refusing to put MK on the programme. If it was a case of we get told we have to put MK Dons and go into their directors box and wipe their arses when they visit etc then Id be happy to tell the EFL to do one.

I most certainly would not be happy if we were fined and continusly fined every year for this. Whilst I don't beleive we have done anything wrong, I don't think we should be so stubborn as to risk getting fined, especially with finances being so tight.

I was initially against that idea but must admit I think it's more to do with telling the EFL to fuck off than MK so go for it . They will never deduct points for nonsense like that so fuck it

To be honest I don't care if they fine us. I would be quite happy for the club to walk into the hearing, tell them we are going do exactly the same each game and walk out.
