Dear Ed's and Reds

Not a great result today and as most of you chaps on here would know, footy has been a massive part of my life.

I was made redundant last Thursday and it's a bitter pill to swallow as my performance through C.V. has been nothing but brilliant. I work ( or worked ) in the wholesale industry and have been increasing turnover by between 80 and 150% since last March. Crazy yes, but I have a line manager that has been completely threatened by me. Having worked for the company less than two years ( 20 months ) I'm not going to be able to take a claim to an industrial tribunal.

One might think why post this on here? it's the only place I can vent my utter disappointment without consequence and it's like a mini footy family on here.

So I won't be posting for a while until I get myself back on track as it's made me realise there is more to life than football - the security of my family which is in rubbish streak as it stands

Stay safe my fellow reds and Ed's, love you all and see you again soon

Drogie x.

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry that this has happened Drogie. The past year or so has attracted a huge number of casualties one way and another but you need to come through this and come back stronger - you need to be resourceful and think about what other options may be available. Whilst many of the folk here are knuckle-dragging morons, I will say that the folks are very supportive of each other - which is to be admired. The blender of reality has hit - I trust you to come through and win over the situation. Don’t step away, make the most of the support.}

Wish you strength, courage and success in your search Drogie. I'm sure you will succeed in finding the right answers. And yes, you're right, there are many other things far more important than football. But we're a family here and I hope you set your ship upright soon enough. YNWA.

07 Mar 2021 23:39:04
Thanks very much Ed002, your words mean a lot.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks - don’t step away from here. It is good support.}

07 Mar 2021 23:40:45
Drogie I’m really sorry to hear that but the cream always rises to the top and whilst it’s a bitter pill to swallow right now I’m sure in the near future you will be back doing the business and smashing it. May be worth sticking your location on here. Never know another red might be looking for someone with your skills as we speak.

07 Mar 2021 23:44:03
Puts it in perspectives Drogie. Hope things turn around, shame your boss was such a coward that he could find a way to use your abilities and help you develop your career. Ed002, you’re a legend,

07 Mar 2021 23:53:39
Drogie really sorry to read that you are going through a rough one at the min. I’m sure that something will come up for you sooner rather than later with your work ethic. Keep the head held high dude and keep posting. Wishing you good health and a bit of luck to help you turn things in your favour. YNWA.

07 Mar 2021 23:55:02
Thanks chaps - and I’m Northwest - Warrington.

07 Mar 2021 23:55:22
Drogie, I’ve been there and it sucks. You will end up in a better situation and you will be stronger. Don’t stop coming here. This is a good place for support. All the best. Reach out if you need to vent.

07 Mar 2021 23:57:06
Ed002 that was a tremendous response. Much respect.

08 Mar 2021 00:00:42
Ffs. hope you land on your feet soon drogie lad. YNWA.

Sorry to hear that Drogie. Hold your head up high and don't blame yourself. By all accounts, it sounds like your manager is insecure in his/ her own capabilities. It also sounds like you have the drive and ability to succeed in another organisation, hopefully away from cowardly head-stepping managers.

08 Mar 2021 06:41:19
Keep the faith Drogie.
All the best to you and your family and I pray it all works out for you guys. You'll be stronger for this 💪.

08 Mar 2021 07:00:34
I'm very very sorry Drogie so as you say this line manager felt threatened by you that meant that you have skills that they don't possess which is why you very unfortunately had to go. So I'm convinced that you will bounce back bigger, better and stronger mate.

08 Mar 2021 07:13:11
So sorry to hear that Drogie. Keep the faith and know that something good is around the corner, even if it feels like all hope is lost right now.

08 Mar 2021 07:14:34
I 100% agree with Ed002. Now is the time you need support in any shape or form. Yes this is a football site but as you know the Eds have given good grace to post other "off topic" stuff.
Stay, even if it is to tell us how much of a knob your line manager was. Its good to talk Drogie, you know that I'm sure.
One thing I do know from past evperience that things are never as bad as they seem. Personally, years ago I lost my house and a considerable amount of personal money. A wife and 3 young kids at the time to look after. It was tough and I made massive mistakes, mainly because I was too proud to ask for advise. Take whatever help you can get.
I'm sending you all the luck strength and hope for the future. You will be OK.

08 Mar 2021 07:17:06
Sorry to hear about the tough times Drog! Keep your head up mate as tough as this is right now, I’m sure it will open doors for you in some way so that you can find a job and boss that will appreciate your skill set soon enough.

Can’t say it any better than Ed02 has but only agree that this site offers such support and distraction so hope to see your posts continue mate! YNWA.

08 Mar 2021 07:20:19
Just like our beloved reds you WILL rise once again just keep the head up mate.

08 Mar 2021 07:13:11
So sorry to hear that Drogie. Keep the faith and know that something good is around the corner, even if it feels like all hope is lost right now.

{Ed025's Note - yeah hang in there drogie things will improve im sure, you come across as strong individual and sometimes things happen for a reason and it could be the making of you mate....keep the faith..

08 Mar 2021 07:14:34

Keep fighting Drogie. As someone that has been through the worst of times I can tell you it makes those happy times that will come again all the more memorable. Stay here, post what you want even to vent some more. We are a family on here, yes we fight and argue and disagree sometimes but when one of our own is on need we support them.

{Ed077's Note - I would just like to say this Drogie:

At the end of it all, everything will be fine. If it's not fine then it not the end yet. No matter how bad things look, how bad people are, just remember there will never not be good people.

08 Mar 2021 08:10:29
Best wishes, Drogie.
Can you play centre half, mate?

08 Mar 2021 00:39:37
Well said, Ed002. Never give up, Drogie. One door closes, another one opens.

08 Mar 2021 02:25:19
Sorry to hear your news Drogie, a tough time for you and your family but hope you can bounce back soon and stronger than ever. Respect for your reply Ed02.
