    If Jib was banned, and has come back with a new nom de plume, hopefully he may have learnt from whatever got him banned. Jib crossed the line numerous times, as have others, so to have been banned he must have really overstepped.

    However, he also made posts and contributions that were a positive for the blog. L

    If he is Hexham, and hasn’t learnt , then he will sharp overstep. If he is, and has, then the blog would be a better place for it.

    He also might not be Hexham…… If Toon22 was right all along, then Jib’s absence may be an indication the takeover is progressing in some form, and PR is being let go?

    Lilongwe,
    The worst, however Dubs made more saves than any other keeper

    That means we were the least successful defence in the league! I would be happier if Dubs did not make a save all season… when he gets back.

    Fair post and my feeling exactly. If hex is jib then so far hex hasn’t show the side that obviously got jib banned or moderated and if we don’t see that side then let it be.

    Either way, Jib doesn’t need defending, and he has made enough faux pars to not really be someone to defend.

    At the same time, until Hexham crosses the line, he should be afforded the benefit of the doubt.

    If Jib isn’t posting, then possibly time to let that one go, and move on. Please…..

    Lilongwe,
    People have been saying it for a few weeks now and I even posted that if it is him then those that miss him get his links and those that don’t miss him don’t have to put up with his shite. Then he goes and posts that then hides behind it being someone else’s comment from twitter. He knows he’s crossing the line but just seeing how far he can cross it.

    Peter,
    Or we put more chances wide than anyone else….

    The comment.was more tongue in cheek than anything else. Anyway, shots off target/blocked/miscued/not taken plus shots conceded gives you the worst defence.

    The only way he (or any first choice keeper) doesn’t save a shot all season is if he they are injured all season, so I certainly wouldn’t be happy with no saves.

    Coming home,
    There has been plenty over the years that could have seen him banned. I don’t know what might have got him banned, but it is well within the realms of possibility that he overstepped.

    I know, but saying our goalie had the most saves isn’t good considering how many we let in. BUT imagine a team so good that the goalie did not have a shot to save all season!!!!! But maybe I am a dreamer, but I can’t be the only one

    Peter,
    I’m not saying it is good mate. It definitely isn’t. It was an off the cuff response that was far from any serious commentary on football.

    Lilongwe,
    When talking about the takeover earlier, he posted a derogatory term for disabled people then claimed it was someone else’s comment from twitter. It wasn’t very nice and simply no need to repost it.

    It wasn’t very nice but it was word for word of the Arabic translation off twitter. That wasn’t his words.

    Jail,
    Fair enough. Haven’t been on enough to see Hexham’s posts, but if it is as you say, then, Jib or not, no room for it on the blog.

    Even if it was posting someone else’s tweet, common decency would dictate you edit it anyway for most people.
