He was GT's choice to take over and indeed SH did not sell his house in the area in the hope of something turning up.

If we was to be appointed it had to be as GT left as after Harry ravaged the side it was a poison chalice.

Is there any truth about SH and a plastic cup and a body solid playing a part in his leaving Millwall?
