    Damning indictment of crewe alexandra/Bennell/Hard to Believe

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38632026

    That report and findings do not reflect well on Crewe at all.
    Hope Bennell rots in hell.

    Apparently Dario wrote to a court in the US on Crewe Alex headed notepaper after he was convicted over there, said what a good bloke he was, in order to get his sentence reduced.

    Crewe Alex need to address all the questions that have arisen from this sorry state of affairs. There is the strongest possible perception that the Board and Management knew a lot more of Bennell's activities than they have disclosed. The only way this perception will go away is for all the questions to be answered. The integrity and good name of a football club require that those who are able to make a decision do so now.

    If no one covered up for Bennell then it would be a simple matter to answer the questions.

    Over to you Mr Bowler and Mr Gradi.

    Perhaps I shouldn't be surprised, given Crewe appear to have denied that any of this ever happened, but I notice there is no mention of today's verdicts on the Crewe forum, and the board seem to have remembered that Bennell was sacked for "football reasons".

    Are we to believe that Radio Stoke's Crewe Alex reporter heard absolutely nothing about all this over the years?

    what absolutely disgusting is that these thoughts and suspicions have been about 20 years. ive worked in coaching locally and was warned about him from the off, reports from parents of kids at crewe were rife and nothing has been done until now.

    Radio Stoke Didn't the Crewe reporter Peter Morse say that it was all exaggerated?

    Dario is still suspended. There must be a reason why. Are any charges being brought against him?

    Also how many compensation claims will be made against Crewe?

    I rang into Radio Stoke a few months ago, after a representative of the Crewe team stated that it was disgusting that Gradi was still suspended. No one at the club has admitted to knowing about it. I worked close to Gresty Road through the seventies eighties and nineties, people were aware then i know for a fact. Crewe Alexandra, Peter Morse hang your heads in shame.

    Morse wrote this a while back which I found a bit... odd.
