Yup, I'm delighted that we'll have some insider information again. I must admit, I don't care for his opinion pieces, like how he weirdly obsessed over Robbie for a long time when it seemed obvious that it wasn't going to work out, and it's weird how he's so sensitive to criticism that he deletes his account twice a year. Still, he's a good person to have back, hopefully we'll have some idea as to the club's transfer strategy.

Is it just me or isn't it unhealthy for there to be someone like this leaking a load of information from a club? Doesn't sit right with me. Opinion pieces are great, but information about the club's dealings should be kept private.

He's not indiscreet and he's not "leaking a load of information from a club" :roll:
I'm glad he's back - very much missed over the past few weeks.

Otd doesnt leak information till its safe to do so, they do it in that period between it being complete and the club actually announcing it.

Case in point they leaked it being micciche and millen the night before it was anounced when people saw micciche at the game but were scrambling for information on the assistant and whether paul mitchell would be involved. Yes otd leaked it would just be micciche and millen but the interviews that were published the following day had all been recorded the night otd leaked the info so again its always over the line first and safe to give fans a premature heads up.

Also most of it is opinion pieces and anecdotes anyway and its well written unlike many blogs and a good blend imo.

Regards shutting account down I think you nder estimate how much abuse they suffer from both opposition and surprisingly our fans. Most would need a break from time to time.

IMHO .......if he keeps the Club honest, I’m happy with that.

Nothing wrong with honest accounts and opinions, I am all for it.

Enjoyed this blog, though he does go a bit OTT when he says "silly mistakes by the players led to fatal consequences." Fatal ? Really ? :lol:

Usually he'll only leak information if it's safe too, or if the information has been rumoured by someone else so he'll clarify. Signings in particular, he names players when the name has come up before, but kept Ugbo quiet in the summer as it was delicate and nobody knew about him at the time.

This 100%

I always find that OTD is frustratingly guarded about his info and sources actually - which I totally understand. I certainly don't regard these blogs as any kind of threat.
