Disappointing that he's felt the need to do that.

doesn't reflect well on him either tbh.

The fact he's used his heightened profile and influence to call out an individual directly on an internet forum is at best poor form, at worst irresponsible.

Especially when 99.5% of the people who go to PR and post on here think his son is the bees knees and that Frimmers is a wally.

Very thin skinned from him and he's probably embarrassed poor Wes too.

For goodness sake - a father shouldn’t try to protect his son?

Protect him from what?! A known troll who was one lonely voice on an Internet forum?!

That's a great shame. Really disappointing he felt the need and how some players and their family may view TWTD. It's really not what we wanted.

Playing Devil's Advocate here for a second...

Are we sure that account was the GENUINE David Burns (Dad of Wes)? Could have been some tinker off here maybe out to cause a bit of trouble?


Just find it a bit odd that the account disappeared abruptly after what could be considered Mission Accomplished (Frimmers banned).

It's not really for us to judge. If Mr. Burns didn't like it then it's fair enough to call it out. We don't know anything about him, any other issue he might have going on in his life etc.

This is definitely not on him.

Many many years ago in the land that time forgot, I once sent a fax to the club - FAO James Scowcroft advising him to ignore the boo boys.

I got a phone call from his dad a few days later thanking me.

Yes, definitely him. Have met him in the real world and we discussed an incident that you had to be there for.

Fair enough. In that case, shame he had to delete his Twitter, and right that Frimmers was given a free transfer.

I wrote a long letter to George Burley once (nice one - just my thoughts - God knows why I did) - and he wrote me a nice two pages of A4 back detailing all my points.

I was flabbergasted that he took all that time to reply. Everything from my wish to sign Eidur Gudjohnson (sic) to youth players to tactics.

How do we know what frimmers had going on in his life? not having TWTD as his place to express himself could prove an issue for him.

I dont think that's a valid excuse. First and foremost, TWTD needs to have a good reputation with the club as a place for SUPPORTERS of the club. I mostly stuck up for Frimmers but never gave any thought to any possible impact his postings might have on players or their families (particularly re. Wes Burns). Once that became apparent, then its clear he was going too far and TWTD rightly doesn't want to be associated with that. I think there is a lesson here for us all to be mindful of what we post as many friends/families/players no doubt browse TWTD.

Perhaps if you didn't let posters spout bile for so long (it was more then just opinion, freedom of speech as many had pointed out for so long) or at least had some kind of moderation in process, this incident and some of the many others that have personally impacted users on here wouldn't have happened.

Not having a go, just don't know why you don't consider it / trial it etc. Would reduce yous and Phil's work load i would assume too.

Err, so it's ok to slag off a player for 3 years to the point where it upsets his parents?

No, sorry, Frimmers has been warned time and time again for his 'posting style'. Like many, I didn't want him banned, but it's not overly surprising, especially when it's brought Phil and TWTD into disrepute. Him and Gav don't need or deserve that.

And it's rather rich coming from you, you've had a good old chuckle at my expense recently despite not knowing what's going on in my life. Seems like you pick and choose who it's ok to have a pop at.

Trust the process. Trust Phil.
