Not really a matter that needs a celebratory emoji

The club have done the right thing by getting their statement out quickly. Crewe Alexandra looked absolutely appalling when they seemed to be in denial about Barry Bennell after he was sentenced.

I can't think of a better indication that this 'predator' has been sent down for a good long stretch, other than a celebratory clap emoji. As you say, we have treated the situation properly right from the word go; unfortunately the police and other authorities dragged their feet and tried to ignore the situation in 2013 and it took until another complaint in 2017 before they really did something about it. Well done Posh!

Dirty bastard deserves every minute. I hope he suffers as his victims did. Agree with Claude, the club did the right thing in accepting what he did.
