Extraordinary and it's extremely disasapointing to read that, that Aldo was as bad as he's made out to be.



Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.

Over the years theres been lots of stories come out Prenton Park about Aldo and his temper.

I don't think Perry's case is unique, however I do think it was the worst.

Aldo was a great player but had no man management skills at all.

He was obviously out of his depth managing and it appears that the further down the table the club slipped the more he took it out on players and staff.

You can see why hes not gone elsewhere as a manager.

Such a shame about young Taylor though, I heard great things about him, then never got to see him develop.

He's not a nice fellow, Aldridge.

This article should be reposted whenever someone is condemning a player for putting his career first and moving to another club, for whatever their reasons may be.

It's a sad story and I hope that he succeeds his chosen career.

Feel like I've lost a family member having read that!

I love John Aldridge to bits and he is without a doubt my favourite player of all time. I will still respect his footballing achievements, however, I now think he's a c**t of a man. The PFA should be bloody ashamed of themselves too.

People are different and respond to things differently, as Ian Joy pointed out with his thick skinned comment. The sign of a good manager, in any walk of life, is being flexible and able to adapt to the needs, wants and sensitivities of others. Aldo unfortunately didn't have that tool in his locker.

The world, its cultures and societies, are always evolving. Unfortunately, there are always people in positions that they're not prepared for, sitting stagnant and not evolving at the same rate.

Call me a sentimental old fool, but I would have him back tomorrow. Aldo is king (second to Johnny King of course)

Tranmere Rovers and the PFA should be ashamed of themselves. Also the likes of Kevin Sheedy and the staff who sat by and 'shied away' should take a long hard look in the mirror too. To standby and let this happen is disgusting. I am seriously @#$%& off with this. John Aldridge sounds like an absolute c**t. In any other profession he would have been sacked for treating an employer like this. No wonder he hasn't had another job in management. Stick to what you're best at i.e. talking s***e on Radio City. What a @#$%& bag.

He is no longer a hero of mine. Disgrace to our club, and should be stripped of any acrimony he's recieved at our club. Always suspected something wasn't right about the man, and to read this is shocking.

I actually read this last night and held off replying to it, but the time hasn't done anything to make me think any different about him. Disgraceful.

I believe his Missus is a bit of a shobgite too?

My mate used to work the doors over in Liverpool City Centre and he was telling me that she's always kicking off and causing mayhem.

Looks like they were made for each other hey?

Changed my opinion of Aldridge this, what an 'orrible c**t!!!

Ian Joy went on to play for St PAuli in the German Bundesliga, some of their fans remembered hiom when I was over the a year or so ago

It will be interesting to see if any of the local, or indeed national rags pick up on this and if the club issue a statement about it, which I doubt they will.

Perry is a good friend of mine an the way he was treated by that @#$%& was nothing but a disgrace, he's still a great footballer and there's no doubt in my mind he would still walk into straight back into tranmeres first team

Having read the detail I suggest people acknowledge a degree of journalistic sensationalism, I take a lot of it as personal feelings and interpretation. As everyone worth their salt know's, there are obviously two sides to a story including this one. People who bear a grudge or feel they have been hard done to have a habit of over emphasising the points. People didn't like Aldo's approach as he was up front and told it as he saw it. In regards to Tranmere that was passion as opposed to so-called bullying. Players are very quick to take £2000 a week from the clubs kitty but shout sour grapes when they feel they have been hard done to.I'm sure the player would have left the club had someone offered him a better deal but the FACTS seem to suggest no other club were that interested in such a brilliant player.

I'm not saying that Aldo is an angel, an the fact that he hasnt been back in football since he left us shows that something isnt right about him BUT just remember theres two sides to every story...

re.Aldo and the Worthington Cup Final...What puzzled me then and still does.....why after being largely responsible for getting us to Wembley was Jon Achteberge dropped for the young and inexperienced Joe Murphy? Can anyone throw some light on that.My friends and I were gobsmacked when we heard the team announcement.

Wasn't it to do with him stalling on not signing a new contract, or something?
