Thanks for your response Kevin. Surely, as a committed Chairman, you see the huge need for support on the Board, investment, etc? It is easy to comment on this forum, sometimes critically as a supporter, but the majority on here have the same passion for the club as the Durectors and their wives. The difference is, we do not own the Club.
Surely as owner of the Club, it is important for you to progress the Club, as you have, sometimes against all odds, for which the true supporters have given you the plaudits, and quite rightly so. Now that the demands of the game are changing rapidly, surely it is the responsibility of the chairman/owner of the Club to restructure the Club to cope with these demands and remain in a competitive arena to compete for the bigger spoils? It is hardly taking responsibility by throwing the duty of attracting new directors and stakeholders back to the supporters, who have voiced their concerns via this medium.
We all care deeply about the club, and unfortunately at the minute emotions are running high with everyone connected with the club, so at the minute any talk of you leaving Kevin is a knee jerk reaction, as are the calls from some for change.
In sport its great when things are going well, everyone loves the pats on the back, but you have to be able to take the flack when things dont go so well.
Whilst relegation is financially disasterous for us, it could be a blessing in disguise, as we would only be in a relegation scrap again next year in a lop sided championship.
Its the perfect chance to regroup, take stock, make changes that can benefit us going forward and get a team on the field that can challenge for honours in the bottom tier next year.
The season though has been a disaster from week 1 and i personally blame our terrible recruitment for our demise, the points deduction just sped up the process. I pin most of the blame firmly at the door of John Kear for some terrible signings and some questionable tactics at times.
If it wasnt for you Kevin, we may not have had a club to support, and you certainly have my backing as chairman.
Lifes a learning curve and you learn from your mistakes, so by that logic we should become a much stronger club for this experience.
