My two penn'orth on the Ched situation.
From a football perspective, it's a risk. He might not be able to discover the form or fitness he had in that last season with us. I don't judge him on the season before as the whole team were lethargic and crap that year and we were relegated in all but points by Christmas. If anyone can rekindle the form in Evans it's CW and he now gets a full summer to spend on him. To be honest, we could spend a lot more that 500k on a striker and lose the lot because he turns out to be shite or doesn't fit in (Higdon, Sammon etc etc). IF CW performs the miracle we're hoping, we could be sat with an asset worth in excess of 3m and IF Ched can get 10 goals and Billy can get 15 goals next season then chances are we're going to be safe. I can't imagine CW doing what Adkins or even Clough might have done and picking Ched for the sake of it. If he can't cut it anymore, he'll be on his way soon enough.
From a non-football perspective, it's a risk. I think the divisive nature of this deal will heal fairly quickly. In the financial markets news is news and once it's broken it has little further influence on the stock or reputation of a business. In this regard the Ched news broke last year and then again last month. It'll die down quickly (rightly or wrongly depending on your point of view).
Personally, I'd gladly have not done this deal, I'm sure there are other potential strikers out there although they would have cost more but would have been without any baggage. But, in Wilder I trust. He's not done too badly so far.
I'm not going to post my view on the actual case here - that's for the numpties on social media who don't seem to understand the difference between libel and slander and the consequences of either.
