How did Akinola get back in the team? Was that really PB's decision? He said in the post match interview that he didn't know who was in charge anymore sounded like he was 'persuaded' to let Sim play?
Yes, it was PB’s decision.
PB is an experienced manager, been in the game an awful lot time, both as a player, an assistant and a manager, do you really believe he’d be taking orders from a chairman to pick a certain player.
PB doesn’t need the money, he’d have told RM where to stick it.
I’m not sure where that comment come from, but my best guess would have been a either a subtle dig at SC rocking up again (Having appeared to have outlasted him back in the Summer) or at RD’s increasing role at the football club, but I’d side on the SC side on that one.
