On 4 November 2006 McIndoe also scored in the Yorkshire derby against Leeds United, from outside the box with a low-driven shot. We wanted to know if the chairman, or anybody else from the club, would like to say anything positive about the turnaround in results? His father, who was 6ft 5in (196cm) with a temper, pulled him off the sofa, dragged him across the floor and jammed his son’s foot on top of a coffee table.

I strongly believe that Michael can lead us into our next phase and help us achieve our goals in the future, making players better and bringing his knowledge and experience inside the club. Then there is the story he tells about the time he went round to his father’s flat, where he would sometimes sleep on the floor, and was given an ultimatum. I don’t know how he thinks he can operate in football,” says one former team-mate, speaking on the basis of anonymity, who saw the suffering it caused and lost out financially himself. Dodging drugs, gangs and having my dad tell me he'd 'snap my leg in two' set me up for crazy career in football says Michael McIndoe".Some reports, challenged by McIndoe, have stated that more than 300 people were owed money, a Who’s Who of the football industry that included Robbie Keane, Jimmy Bullard, Gabby Agbonlahor and many others from the Premier League to the lower divisions. While playing for Doncaster Rovers he set a record scoring ten penalties which was more than any player in the English Football League in the 2005/06 season.

McIndoe has been accused of being “the mastermind behind the biggest case of fraud to hit the British game” and, if that sounds dramatic, this is how his own autobiography describes the allegations that, by his own admission, have left a permanent stain on his reputation. It is a detailed account of his upbringing on the Calders Estate in Edinburgh, his professional football career and his nightclub on Oxford Street in London.He played professional football for fifteen years at ten English football clubs, including Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bristol City and Barnsley.

Where do we start with the newly appointed manager who is standing in front of his dugout with a story that is so complex and, at times, controversial that his club decided on the eve of his last match to bar The Athletic from entering the stadium? I’d lost my job, my girlfriend, my driving licence and had huge gambling debts,” McIndoe said in an interview with The Times in 2005. They tell the story at one of his former clubs about how McIndoe used to take a briefcase into the dressing room and, having given up alcohol, presented the impression that he was carrying important documents about property and investment.His talent was never in question but his off-field problems with alcohol addiction meant in December 1999, he was entered into the Priory. We have decided we do not wish to answer any questions or give any interviews and, to be fair, we would not have time even had we wanted to,” he replied, via text message.

In December 2017, Scotland Yard completely cleared McIndoe in relation to the allegation in the national newspapers. He also became the first player in history to have all 24 Conference managers vote unanimously for the same player as Nationwide Conference Player of the Year. Club chairman John Dickson said: "We are very happy and pleased to have Michael on board as our new manager. City are yet to win in the league this season and have taken just two points from a possible 27 so far.McIndoe, who spent his playing career in England with Bristol City, Coventry and Luton amongst others, replaces Alan Maybury at the cinch League 1 outfit. McIndoe's first season at Doncaster was very successful with the Rovers winning the Third Division (fourth tier) title. His position was non-negotiable and, as The Athletic found out at the weekend, if that means banning media outlets who want to cover their games, that is what Gretna will do. At the age of 22, McIndoe captained the team on numerous occasions and picked up the club Player's Player of the Year award.
