Re: Former Forest Player Watch Reply #2205 – October 02, 2017, 07:51:22 pm Quote from: Jüânfrân on October 02, 2017, 05:52:09 pmHe tackles racism quite early on in his book (and talked about how that was important for him to highlight his attitudes to it). He dismissed a lot of it as banter, just trying to get under an opponent's skin, give you the winning edge etc -such as him calling Scholes a ginger bstard - rather than genuine prejudice/hatred. Does share a tale about how he called Molby fat in the tunnel and Molby went on to list all his achievements and run the game, then CP tried it against a lower/non league player, listing his caps, houses etc and got slaughtered in the press when the lower league club's chairman went public about what he had said.Described Forest as "carnage" when he went there. Completely the wrong move, made for emotive reasons, didn't do himself justice (was rubbish). BFR left,, Platt tried to take on/remove the characters in the dressing room to show he was in control and Carlton was shipped out. Said his performances at Cov afterward showed he was still a good player and hadn't lost it, just things were seriously not right at Forest. Interesting chat, even if I wouldn't say I entirely agree with Carlton's view on many things.Interesting. Wiki says that he underwent life-saving heart surgery 10 months ago. Didn't know that.
