The stupid thing was Brighton fans berating him for not running around kicking people. Which would be a bit like us slagging off Danny Coles for not dribbling the length of the pitch, 'megging 6 players along the way.
Which, of course, is not something we ever read on Exeweb.

I know if a player has a chance to have a crack at a higher level you can't blame him for wanting to go but I do sometimes wonder if he (not to mention us) would have been better staying at City. Everything suited Ryan at City. The team was built around his skill and ability. We all loved him. He could do virtually no wrong.
What stay at City and forgo the money ? Don't be daft it's his livlihood.

Mackie has handed in a Transfer request at QPR, doubt he'll get another Prem club, but think he'll be good for another Championship team.

I know, that's why I said you can't blame him for moving on but just for flip side of what I mean take Matt Le Tis. Could have, and probably should have, left Southampton to further his career but stayed where he was happy and loved by all connected to Southampton. Had he moved, would have suffered similar slings and arrows that Ryan has?

The obvious difference being that Le Tissier learnt enough at Southampton to make him comfortable for life. If Southampton were League 1 he would have been off like a shot.

Steve Bull is similar.
