Millbrook Football Club Statement

Rumours

Over the past week a rumour about an ex professional signing for the club has been circulated. Millbrook Football Club wish it to be known that we have no idea where this rumour started therefore has no substance what so ever. However it was reported on the club official website without permission by Mike Roberts. This was a mistake on Mikes part and as an ex media student should have known not to report stories before being informed the facts instead of basing the story on rumour.

Mike Roberts

Mike Roberts joined Millbrook in April. On his arrival he was told by the club that his internet behaviour would be monitored and he was advised that he should only offer opinions on football not the politics around it. This advice over a small period of time has been ignored. Mikes Loyalty has become a major issue for Manger Dane Bunney after he was forwarded a email from mike containing the names and numbers of approx 80 local footballers. It turns out this document was stolen of Plymstock Manager Micky Hunts work computer which mike had access to while attending the same gym as Micky works. To add to that Mike now seems obsessed with touting himself to Newquay Football Club. His behaviour has got to a point which can not be ignored.

We feel we have done everything we can to make Mike feel at ease within the club, offering him the freedom to perform tasks he enjoys such as the match day programme, the website and running the line for us on match days.

It is with regret that Mike Roberts is no longer worth the trouble, and after a conversation between the committee and Dane Bunney it has been decided that Mike Roberts will have no further association with Millbrook Football Club.

What a silly little boy!

would've thought he'd learnt his lesson but obviously not. Millbrook gave him a chance to do what he enjoys... ie media work like websites, programming etc. He obviously has abused this privalige and opportunity hence the action from the Millbrook commitee and Dane.

"Mike" was giving millbrook a worse name then it has, and hopefully this move by Bunney alongside a few positive signings is a statement of intent of moving the club in the right direction :smiley20:

Lets hope so. They do seem to have been shooting themselves in the foot a lot over the past year or so. Hopefully the can now move on in a positive direction. Like I said on a previous post on a previous topic; nice club that deserves better given past experiences etc.

firstly,

I do think Millbrook welcomed me into the club, I really enjoyed what I did for them. Not that I wanted to make myself the best person going around, I was just doing what other people at other clubs do.

As far as his statement is concerned, not one word of thanks dane. I want to thank dane and the committee of millbrook for the opportunity to work with them to the close of the season, but I also needed to think about my future and what I wanted. I mean Millbrook is a good club with some good signings so far, but the club itself, I believe is not a mid table team. After conversations with several members on this forum, they had said that someone like Newquay would be the best club for someone with the passion and enthusiasm as me. well given that I decided to contact newquay to see what I could offer and they came back saying they would love to have someone like me at the club, but would not like the fact of still helping out millbrook so what could I do. Someone as big as Newquay would like me, I will wait for that opportunity until they get back to me. Someone would be silly to turn down a club, players, management, comittee and supporters club like newquay but I had to have a couple of days thinking time before making that decision.

And for the benefit of posters, the manager is wrong that i "STOLE" the names off mickys work computer because it is always locked when he is in the gym, plus only the staff are allowed in the room.

the list came about from an old sheet that micky used when we were working together at callington which i had kept for a long time. he was looking for targets yes, and at times asked me to do a database of players etc... and have always kept it on my computer in case we moved to different places. as it was micky is now at plymstock and myself not, so with a few signings for mr bunney i felt the need to pass this information onto hom for his benefit except it gets thrown back at me. well where else is he gonna get the information. micky is a friend of mine and i regularly go to the gym for chats etc and he knows i am someone who is trustworthy, so why would I say I stole the information.

and millbrook have been touting a few players from torpoint seconds. dane who is questioning my loyalty, has met players from torpoint and spoke to them. he signed james gill as number 1 keeper but told me on the website story not to mention this as it would upset dan collins, so not being honest is another thing.

If people knew how much passion and enthusiam i have and take it away from all the bad stuff I am a good person. As I said my reputation is on the line representing a club but my opinions are mine and mine only and not that of the club.

with regards to the gary kelly story (start)

i was bemused as to why someone would publish the story on the forum without the managers permission. at the same time i text the manager as to what was it about and he said it was true. few days earlier i asked him about doing a story and he said yes so people can stop talking about it. he said "Millbrook have signed Gary Kelly!" so you gotta believe it and he read the story on the net, cause he said it was not dennis wise. plus dont you see newspapers printing rumours on a website about players signing. dont you see the bbc football publish a rumour mill.

so all in all trust around the club was not there, but i respect the management, committee and the players who are a great bunch of lads and wish them luck next season, just wanted to clear a few things up from my point of view.

I feel that i must voice my opinion, not on this topic but on millbrook in general.

Millbrook used to de a succesfull well run club. i think if i remember corectly roger fice lead them to around 5th in the old south western league about 5 years ago. The current state of millbrook tho is a far cry from the afore mentioned era.

Finishing as low as they did last year with what can best be described as pub players, a manager who seems to have made more enimies than friends and countles forum topics and post on this forum with so called fans, players and others affiliated to the club making the club a laughing stock.

if milbrook know whats good for them they should inform all those associated with the club not to comment at all on the forum and let their club do their talkin on the pitch. The current management set up was a gamble and has it worked in reguards to conduct, club reputation and results??????

Two letter answers on the back of a postcard please

Moderators / Administrators......Can't you bar him? (....Mike)

He's doing my head in, thinking he's all that.......Probably never kicked a ball in his life!!

There's enthusiasm / commitment granted, but this deluded fella takes things to the extreme.

the judge spoke to me after he was their at their agm so i took the option to contact them after reading his text and in the interest of the manager of millbrook i couldnt go behind his back told him that i had contact from newquay and he does this. fair enough ill leave millbrook but i never wanted to leave unless newquay had contacted me which they havent yet.

and then you say later that u want me off this forum altogether, i will never leave this forum, i will still read comments, but you dont even know me. Mr A nothing new there you said i aint heard before.

When have i said I THINK IM ALL THAT, you and the other posters have personally made that choice, not me.

i have played football before and a couple of games for callington, but as you see by the avator i have glasses but cant play with them off, tried contacts but they fall out easily. plus i enjoy football not as a player.

I agree coachkt???

and what is your reason me to be banned, because you dont like me, that is sad. im sure the forum legal team wouldnt agree.

ive just aired my personal views, . i would never want anyone on here to get barred because i enjoy the comments and opinions of those who aint met met cause it makes me laugh, but if it got a step taken to far by the forum admins then there is a case to answer

Funny how the manager didn't complain about the 80 player list until now. Funny how the manager tell's him to avoid websites, when he is on here all the time with different names. Funny how the manager blatantly calls up players when they are with other clubs last season.

one word.....scapegoat.

I don't have anything to do with any of the clubs at all but Mike, don't read anything here, stop posting and don't take it so seriously. Enjoy football.

As for the others calling him. Pathetic, just don't reply or complain about the post to the admin here and they can stop it. Far to personal.

Mike,......little bit of advice.....take a leaf out of Mark Truman's book (he runs the Tavistock website)....or have a look at those of Cullompton or even Sticker and Bude in the ECPL...

Well administered websites....no rumours and counter rumours or self opinionated drivel

Just honest information, facts, stats and photos.....and certainly nothing to make their club a laughing stock or bring it into disrepute.

Like I say....Nothing wrong with honest enthusiasm, but learn your limtitations

and thats what i did for millbrook except the stories that i did the manager asked to provide a link.

THE END OF SEASON Q&A STORY, the manager wanted me to put it on here to see the reaction

SIGNINGS he asked me to put a link for peoples opinions

THE WEBSITE ITSELF when i started he asked me to put a link to promote it

THE TORPOINT CLUB STATEMENT SNIPIT the manager put that on himself. he has password access as well and can do stories as well without my knowledge. so he put that story on himself to cover something up??????

as you can see my the stories that i covered, the match reports and the totally difference of how the site used to be i am happy to have helped them except im being made the problem with millbrook, well im afraid the manager has done that himself. again i got back anything i said on here is what the manager has asked me to do. He said to me a month ago that he had removed his identity from the forum. obviously not a month later he is posting again.

i know about my limitations but dont you all, Mr A, Coach etc want to know news going on at other clubs, asl long as it is nothing to do with backroom decisions or ambitions. That is what i have done and the manager had no problem until the gary kelly story, and then you come on here call me something. I guess there is no other club person who will provide information for the club to get more supporters talking positively than negatively. we are all as bad as each other and i never talk to anybody like that. TAFC as a neutral now, respect to you and good look for next season with torpoint. lay in my bed etc, i have and im happy to look for pastures old and new now and sort myself out before the next season wherever or whatever i will be doing. MR A call me what you like, but i dont think of it personally all i take it as is an opinion but i hope you live to regret those comments cause i would never call you anything like that.

Phil Hiscox must be scratching his head about his next cause of action. His story which was a thread on here seems to have been a waste of time, about this forum and other forums.

Well said mike ,dont let these jokers force you out of something you get enjoyment out of.But maybe just be a bit more thoughtful when your posting on this forum in regards to you being associated with a football club as you could be bringing their name into disrepute.As for collina you are joking arnt you ? Roger Fice(MY RYAN}took players from liskeard when birchy was on holiday i believe and im guessing his budget was probably 3 or 4 times what the local management are able to pay the players currently at the club.So I think millbrook football club are quite fortunate having a manager and players playing for their club on limited resources who are obviously keen and hard working even tho probably lacking ability wise.And go on then coachkt which P and D team have you played for . . .? or after your comment about mike never kicking a ball before would you be less forthcoming in saying.

mate i do think about what i say, but im honest, therefore prob too unthoughful, but honest for me is best policy and if a club like millbrook or callington dont like what i say then please contact me. simple, tell me what ive said wrong and i will edit the post, dont say im wrong for saying it cause it will stay there, after all ive got no one else to speak to about these things that have happened. i mean my friend hunty his thing between cally and him stayed between them which is the best policy, but the manager has come on here and told what he things, and i have done the same, people should talk about football and stuff now not their opinion on who is truthful or not

Ortega,

For the record, I never played in the P & D, But:

Teignmouth, Tavistock and Wadebridge in the old South Western League, plus also a short stint at Buckfastleigh Rangers and a season at Coxside United when the Plymouth Combination was a seperate league.

I'm a bit older than most posters on here so we're talking 80's and early 90's when the Web was just for spiders . mobile phones were the shape and size of those black rubber bricks they used to throw in the swimming pool and the Internet, was was where away sides used to try and put the ball at the San Siro!!

:P:thumbsup::yahoo: :D

thanks dave for the removal but you didnt have to, cause ive kept a copy for the civil courts to discuss. after all they can take action ive taken all the comments that are directed at me. i dont wanna reply to them like they have so they will see to that, i copied them all befor eyou deleted them.

as for bigdaw it wasnt dane who got rid of me, it was a case of i had to leave after informing him of the newquay situation elsewhere me and dane were getting on fine together we had a laughs etc so we had a good friendship, just think he got a bit upset at who was interested.

millbrookmike ... they were removed because there is no place for personal insults - no matter who they are about, on any Forum.

I just think it's sad when people have to stoop to such levels. And there's no place for such remarks on here while I have anything to do with this Forum.

As for civil court action etc, that is entirely for you to consider and it's good that you have kept any copies etc.

Hopefully, though there will be lessons learnt by those who see fit, while the Football Club of Millbrook are embarrassed enough to think twice and consider that in future their internal business should not be placed on such a widely read Forum for all to see. Quite frankly, it leave themselves looking not too clever! :c:

Is it just me or do others find it hard to believe that the hard-working Committee and Chairman of Newquay A.F.C. would want Millbrookmike involved with their club? :huh:

man of the post, a committe would be interested if they spoke to me face to face because the work that i can produce not what a members post of me says or the things i say.

any committee members who use this forum and base decisions on what someone offers based on members here who dont know me, would need shooting.

i have lots to offer any club even though this past year it hasnt been that well. i received an email from jim hilton which said newquay would love someone with my enthusiasm and passion, but would not be happy if i was still with millbrook, well im not now, so im interested.

so the manager is interested, but the commitee need to contact me for which peppermint has already done so, thats why im keeping it away from you guys, because people who dont know me will only go as far as they can to put a bad name to the club and the situation.

again its what the club can offer me, not what i want to do. i respect the whole of newquay being a fan myself, so anything i can do inside the club would be gr8.

I dont know u millbrookmike but from what i read on here.....christ do u hold yourself in high regard. There are plenty of people who do/can do what you do, but dont come on here giving it the big one.

You obviously enjoy doing what you do, so why dont you just go about it quietly and then you probably wouldnt keep getting publicly embarrassed like you have been. Personally i would be very supprised if Newquay took you on as im sure they dont want to end up like Callington and Millbrook and have people laughing at the clubs because of you. Feel free to make a copy of this for the civil courts im sure they will just bin it anyway.

Mike,

Im not speaking for the whole of Newquay AFC when I say this, but from the ones i have spoke to today we would not welcome your involvement at Newquay! We are trying to build a club the town can be proud of again, there is no way with your involvement that this can happen! Time and time again you have been involved in slagging matches about clubs and people you are involved with!

Its disappointing that you have brought our club into this discussion! The committe lead by Graham Drew have worked non stop to create the atmosphere that continues to develop in the club and build a positive name for Newquay AFC again. Bazzer and his bar staff got all the credit they deserve at the end of season presentation night when rewarded with gifts and many thanks from players and supports alike.

Jim Hilton and Lee Hawkey have produce a team bar 3 that all live in the town. The team spirit created is the best I have experienced in my short time in senior football. Jim and Lee continue to work hard to develop us further.

John Hodge needs credit for bringing all the youth teams together and creating a bright future for the club in the years to come. Steve is producnig a playing surface that everyone involved with Newquay is very proud of!

Mike Rabone has been appointed as commmercial manager to try and bring his skills to develop the club further! We are very lucky to have someone of Mikes capabilities take up this position and it can only mean well for the club in the coming season.

The great link between Newquay Voice and the Club continues to provide the town with coverage of all fixtures and results pictures and much more. Phil Bunt and others provide great photos of nearly all the games throughout the season.

The list can continue of all the people working hard for "our" club. Someone with your recent history would offer no benefit to the club in the long term! The club needs people that understand the efforts and appreciate feelings of the committee, management, players and supporters. I for one would be very disappointed if you became associated with Newquay AFC.

Been an avid ( silent ) forum member for some time now. Have had several hours pleasure and amusement reading literally hundreds of interesting threads / replies without committing to a response.

Millbrookmike, I'm sure your postings on here today will have made an impression at Newquay! :D

Just read Dudas' posting and agree with everything he says. :clapper::thumbsup: Those involved at Newquay have done a great job and don't need anyone 'rocking the boat'. :SM_carton:

hakey respect your comments again i dont come on here boasting about the great things i can do, i mean the plymstock fc their secretary also runs the line etc... so he does the same as me. its everytime i post about something another poster comes back and replies the same as you, its old news. and as a matter of fact a poster did a topic on me titled, linesman or football genius, again that was probably a wind up, i never asked for it, so its all you posters on here that has that view of me, and you need to lay off the fact i dont think im all this. just because i post what i think sometimes, makes people read it but nothing to do with what i do

I believe elburtonvilla are looking for someone to help behind the scenes mike.They are a sleeping giant in plymouth at the moment.You should look to get in touch with them.If you need witnesses at your civil court action just let me know.

dont need to mate i copied the website comments from earlier, the times the comments etc.. and will use them when need be.

hey ortega u just signed up, unless you are dane bunney, if your not, then you dont know half the story and probably wouldnt wanna know, it would take days of writing to tell you everything, i could tell you what people think of me, its all pretty much the same thinking lines though.

i also dont know him and think the same as you mate. i would be gutted if we had someone like that writing about my club. somethings shouldnt be said in public. :SM_carton:

i would like all members new/old to please post the topics or replies that i have said for other clubs reputations on the line please..... if it helps, cause there are posters now just posting for the sake of it.

As always a brilliant reply from Dudas. Can't tell you how pleased I am to hear that Newquay have no intention of getting involved with Mike, I've been worrying about it all evening :(

Wish you well on your next adventure Mike but please please keep away from Newquay!

Yes he is actually real, not a bad bloke, very enthusiastic, I think all the attention has gone to his head though, he thinks he's some kind of celebrity. Needs to think before he opens his mouth, could've saved him alot of trouble.

diggingyourselfdeeperanddeepermike, (Potential new user name)

One minute you say you are keeping the Newquay contact out of public view, the next thing you are mentioning e-mails from Jim Hilton etc.

Newquay far too respected and well run to have someone like you running your mouth in public.

People whinge about the Judge on occasion but he never drags behind the scenes stuff onto the forum, you are on a totally different level.

You get no brownie or sympathy points for trying to claim honesty either. The truth is you cant keep your mouth shut. Micky Hunt cant be that much of a mate of yours otherwise you wouldnt have given the list of names away. I dont know Mickey but you have done a good job of dragging his name through the mud in the past few months as well.

The tone of the text from Dane was absoloutely spot on, in fact he wasted a lot of time in compiling it, I would simply have sent you 2 words.

I had some symapthy for you when the Callington thing erupted but now you just get on my man boobs, even now you come on here and discuss lastest developments in the fracas, you are a huge liability.

Give it a rest and consider re-registering as "keepingmymouthshutmike".

As for Millbrook, I think young managers like Dane should be given a chance to prove themselves.

With regard to tapping players etc, who doesnt?

Falmouth and St Blazey will be fielding good sides this season because they have been tapping people up!

It goes on this time of year, deal with it.

Have to agree with some previous postings, this guy and the whole scenario can not be for real!!

We must have more burning questions to answer instead of, "where will he be next", "what club will he ruin next" etc.........

questions like:-

when the door bell rings, why does the dog always assume its for him, or

why does David Blaine think 44 days doing nothing in a box is a record when Emile Heskey has been doing it for years, or

do leprachauns wear 2 condoms to be sure to be sure, or

if you get a new set of golf clubs for your missus is that considered to be a good swop??????
