He's celebrating pulling off the Terrace View without getting the blame for it.

I don't want to be uncharitable, but he looks like he's trying just a little bit too hard.

I do want to be uncharitable. He looks like someone's dad, who's accompanied his daughter on a night out when she takes her first E. He's cool with it, but he wants to be there. FUCK OFF, DAD!

I reckon he was there to have a dig at Chelsea’s plight, knowing his grinning face will be all over twitter. And I’m guessing it was probably a home game for him anyway

Tough crowd....would you not have given him a hug if you'd bumped into him?

Despite a few obvious mistakes, I'm still massively grateful for what Purslow achieved at the club during a vital period in our history.  He gave us credibility in the press and at PL meetings and I believe led the charge against the Super nonsense. 

I don't care if he looks our of place in the stands, I'd be happy to buy him a pint any time and he'd be welcomed by me at any game, away history or not.

Yeh they can keep Tom Brady buying them drinks.  We’ve got Christian bouncing around like he’s in a mosh pit.

I can't believe the fans treating this guy like a hero.

Do you not think we improved under him?  Yes he hired Gerrard (and paid the price) and was probably behind the Terrace View and initial ST price increases, but don't you think he led us through a difficult period and left us in a better place?

I'd suspect he's had a few but otherwise just looks like a normal fan. I also reckon he's proud of where the club and team are and the part he's played in it, and is now emotionally invested in it. Not to say he'll be a fan for life but fair play he's obviously into it at the moment. Apart from the Gerrard fuck up he did pretty well really.

I'm not sure why there are negative connotations around this.
I'm sure he didn't HAVE to be there. He chose to be.
Fair play to him.

I bet he woke up this morning with that classic head in hands moment and is uttering the words 'wt was I thinking?'

He clearly left the club on good terms and is happy to mix with the fans. No harm in that.

Its a bit sad that a bloke cant go and enjoy himself at a game without some idiot filming him and posting it on social media.

Don’t really see the problem. Seems like he and everyone else had a nice afternoon.

purslow seemed more than happy to be filmed and photographed. Almost as if he knew it would happen and planned for it…..
