Hmm, there seem to be some missing facts about Andy Bernal's post-football life

Wikipedia Post-football career
After retiring from football Bernal worked for a sports agency closely related to David Beckham. He later became a personal assistant to Beckham.

SCIAG Paul McShane is still at the club.

Stuart Beavon is a painter/decorator in the local area.
(His son is a pro footy player, and so was his dad, Cyril, who passed away in Dec).

Noel Hunt is back at home town club Waterford in a player-manager role. I had seen he was at Southend a couple of years ago but didn't know he was part of the Portsmouth team that won League 2 a couple of seasons ago, before Paul Cook took him to Wigan where he also won League 1 last season. There cant be many players who have medals for all three tiers of the Football League.

He unsurprisingly speaks very positively of us in a very recent article which was quite a nice read. Some interesting insights about the signings under Anton from a players perspective too.

I don't think I've ever met someone who had an encounter with Noel and had anything remotely negative to say about him - top guy in my books.

Then we had a change of manager over that period. I was gutted, because I felt the owner at the time was ruining the club. He had knocked everything we had done and built, because it was his club. That was his prerogative.
“But I was one of the longest serving there, along with Adam Federici, I felt I’ll go say something to him. It was a conversation we had over a year’s contract that was on the table, but I don’t think the conversation went well, I felt the players he brought in had changed the ethos of the club.

“He had given these players mega money for not doing anything really, not being proven in the Premier League. I felt that it was wrong, because we had a very hard-working ethos. If you disrupt that, it’ll change very quickly. You feel the disruption — your team and your flow and your chemistry. You start to carry too many players then and there are other players over-working in other areas, trying to cover the ground of these other players, and you don’t do any real job of your own.

“We got relegated and we saw we weren’t good enough to stay in the league, because I felt that four or five players that came in that had to play under the owner didn’t really suit where we as a team had got to. We worked damn hard for that and that was my biggest regret, that we didn’t get a proper chance, a proper go at [the Premier League].”
