    Worrying story from The Athletic this morning. Seems that 'the original family club' are once again acting in a pretty shameful way:

    Not entirely sure why this is in ‘the Safe’? The article is freely distributed and it’s of obvious importance to the club and fans right now.

    A very troubling story and your heart goes out to those who suffered. Let’s hope the club, albeit slowly, is doing the right thing.

    You might say the thread has been 'swept under the carpet'. Any mods want to explain this?

    I imagine the answer is whoever moved didn't realise this article isn't behind the normal paywall.

    I guess the only thing that can be said on this generally as an issue is that hopefully all abuse like we have heard is thing of the past and those who suffered get the apologies they deserve.

    Or if it does people can have the confidence and supper to speak up rather than be bullied into keeping quiet.

    The thread is locked for reasons which I have explained to J.B but I will also outline here. There are current ongoing investigations with legal ramifications which cannot be prejudiced. Furthermore as is the past we cannot as moderators allow the exceptional possibility of comments being made which are litigious in nature and thereby imperil the forum. These are the times we are living in. So for now the thread is being locked but moved back to the Nest. The article J.B has linked to is more than well worth reading as is watching the three part series on the BBC Football's Darkest Secret which casts a very dark shadow indeed over the sport and in which ones hearts and love can only go out to those who have suffered this abuse and in some cases committed suicide.
