    If he's half the manager his brother Alex was, we missed out big time.

    Oh dear. Is Scholar bankrupt and trying to get back in the spotlight? Absolute tea cup that fella.

    He turned us down because he really wanted the Man U job and knew he had to wait a couple of years for it. It's well known. Can't believe any Spurs fan wouldn't know about it to be fair.

    There’s a huge element of luck in footy.That FA cup goal saved fergie his job.Class of 92.We nearly sold bale for £2m.Poch kane dele all at same time.Yes we are now very well run compared to say a West Ham.But Theres still huge amounts of luck involved so the stars align.Imagine if bale had happened in this period.

    Alec Ferguson who managed Chelmsford City, Witham Town and Yeading FC? Scholar was a prick for not getting him on board, we'd be bigger than Real madrid

    I think we should cut the journalist some slack, given that the article was published on 1st January 1970. Incredible foresight, regardless of the Scholar inaccuracy.

    No he didn't. Scholar became Chairman in November 1982, the new West Stand was completed in 1981.
