Bit antiquated the idea of a testimonial. Used to be all about raising money for the soon to be retired player. No longer necessary.
That said, I like the idea of recognising longevity in a player's career with a single club, but I wonder if there's a more effective alternative than the testimonial which, in general, serves up a poor spectacle for the fans.
Maybe instead of a testimonial, they get to have a crack on DCL's bird.
