So these last couple of nights have been restless for UL/UT fans and some UK fans so we wanted everyone to see the rapid reactions via twitter, with the trending topic being Charlie Strong.

Media was ready to break the story…
But then, he left?
That was fast. “@jdemling: Charlie Strong was at the meeting. He has left complex”

He avoided 25 members of the media. All around the complex
Charlie strong is either batman or has a trap door escape route from the complex.
