Why couldn’t we have Petrie admitting a mistake? He made enough of them.
Re Calderwood not being cheap, he was on a very good package to bring him to the club, and the board also backed him with signings.
The decision not to take compensation for him at the point when it was available was based on the club having invested in him and feeling that they wanted some return on that, rather than having to rip it up and start again with a new guy.
At the time, I can understand that line of thinking, with hindsight it’s easy to say it was a bad decision.
