I spoke with Alan last summer (a work thing) and encouraged him, jokingly, to come to Exeter, as his mates Danny Nardiello and Jamie Cureton were here. Looks like it worked. He told me that his happiest of times were at Airdrie and that since leaving he had made a few wrong choices (mostly Plymouth Argyle I would guess).
THe standard of football in the English lower leagues is comparable to or better than most Scottish football I see on T.V. including the SPL.
Hopefully Alan will enjoy being at City as they do play football and keep it on the floor.
