Bowler said: “As the only person left with an association to that era, I truly believe it was important for me to see it through to conclusion. I am satisfied with the findings of the review that found that the club did not have any knowledge of Barry Bennell’s heinous crimes.”
 

Erm...that’s not what the report said is it?

As a Crewe fan I’m struggling to defend the club on this issue, and some of the fans are in denial. 

Forget Cambridge Analytica and the US election, the real story here is that Russian GRU disinformation warfare units are running a campaign on social media to discredit Dario. Apparently.

Some of the comments in that group are utterly insane. One was waxing lyrical earlier about why wouldn't the kids report Bennell. i.e. blaming the victims. There is an awful lot of self-victimisation going on, poor old Crewe and poor old Dario being singled out, and constant personal attacks on Journalists because they don't like the truth. If it was Bolton or Rangers or Blyth Spartans fans doing this my reaction would the same, it's not because it's Crewe, it's the dismissive, deflectory, victim blaming behaviour full stop that is plssing me off.

This is Man City’s comprehensive statement.  Bit different in tone to Crewe https://www.mancity.com/news/club/statement-from-manchester-city-fc-board-of-directors-63751576

Some of the Crewe fans talk about Woodward’s sacking from the police force like it’s some sort of Gotcha. That’s pretty sick. The abuse he went through as a child at CAFC would have been a huge contributory factor to his problems in later life

Exactly.

If anyone looks into it, he was disciplined for having a relationship with a victim's sister and then dismissed for his behaviour at a trial.

Even after ignoring the painfully obvious fact that it absolutely dissolves in insignificance when compared to what he went through, how anyone can expect him to have grown up with no issues is ignorance beyond belief.

I can’t defend the attitude of some of our fans, they are missing the bigger picture that our club failed to protect vulnerable children. But some do understand that the club failed big time. But others just seem to want to hide their heads in the sand. They need to understand the enormity of what happened in the late 80s at the club.

I'm sure you're not condoning violence towards Crewe fans.  I'd have to remove your post of course if I thought you were 😉

Never would that happen, but the banter would be amazing ,throughout the football league.Violence is not the answer,thankfully 🤔

I'd prefer it if not one single opposition fan went to Gresty Road ever again. When we play them next, I'd certainly hope that we could all at least agree to not spend anything at their ground. If they'd come out with a statement like City have, and their most vocal fans weren't behaving like filth, I'd have wished them luck on repairing their reputation. As it is, I'd be thrilled to see them go out of business. Absolute <ovf censored> scumbags.
