Sad news, he could have got Argyle to the top flight with different fortunes

I genuinely believe that. He could have been our Jack Walker or Steve Gibson, Peter Shilton was the wrong choice at the wrong time and the club continues to pay for it.

Didn’t mind Dan.
Put plenty of his own money in & didn’t suffer fools gladly so was never going to gain universal adulation from a fan base oversubscribed with half-wits. Made mistakes as everyone does.
Much rather him than a parasite like brent.
RIP Dan.

Yeah it'll always be a case of what could have been under Dan. We had some amazing highs, but those lows were pretty bad.

He could be a stubborn one when pissed off, especially with his managers but so generous with them the next. Not just a rollercoaster, but a confusing one as well.

I spoke to him just the once at a service station on the way home from an away game, Preston I think it was and he came across as a decent bloke. I also stood in the Mayflower shouting 'McCauley out' up to him as well. He was really that kind of chairman.  

I addressed him as Mr McCauley then and I will again now... RIP Mr McCauley.

(And I hate to be that person, but if we have a thread recognising the death of someone associated with Argyle, please could we spell his name correctly).

There was something up as I remember an article that stated Shilton was earning more than George Graham at Arslick.

lol if he was then by matchdays Shilts had blown the lot and instead hung around the Far Post bar trying to cadge drinks until I put him out of his misery and used to give him what had been bought for me

RIP Dan indeed....very nice guy and if anyone is in Nigel Bodnars Memories group you'll see the short post I put over Dan earlier which was typical of the man

Pasoti seem to forget so much Dan brought in Paul Sturrock amongst other quality managers like Neil Warnock as well...

He did manage to piss off all but about two and a half thousand of the fans by the end of his tenure but the good times were good. RIP.
