I have never seen a thread on SZ that relates to the sacking of Dave Smith and his rather incredible reaction.
Either I spent the Summer of '83 in a drunken haze? Or our manager was fired - but amazingly ignored the sacking and turned up to work for a period of time.
Anyone remember a balding guy with curly locks walking through the main entrance, saying "hello" to his former staff and going up to the office marked "Manager" - way after he had been controversially sacked?? Totally and utterly ignoring his P45, the search for a replacement and the fact that he had no official authority? Yet sitting behind the desk as though nothing had happened?
Dave smith - great bloke and crazy legend.

Could only happen at Roots Hall!
