Someone told me when I took the Chairman’s role that I should ignore the fans forum.
I quite enjoy reading it. I don’t contribute (that’s why I have the blog) but there are some good ideas and some less than good ideas! I do struggle though with the anonymity aspect, it is very easy to criticise when no one knows who you are.
I said when I took the role on that I wanted the club to communicate well as a matter of principle. Recently I haven’t been able to comment so much on the blog, partly because of non football pressures and partly because having written this blog for 18 months, over 200 posts and 43,000 views it can be difficult to keep coming back and posting. Do you want it to continue? Usually I get good feedback from many supporters so please let me know if you want me to keep this going and I will try.
I am keen that we do a ‘meet the manager/chairman’ evening during October. Those not happy with GB can then have the opportunity to ask him (and me) the difficult questions about where we are and what our plans are. Look out for the date.
We continue to look to strengthen the squad where we can – but there is no point bringing players in who will not improve what we have. We have enquired about so many strikers recently and the continue to draw a blank. We asked about a player coming out of the Blue Square Premier who ended up signing for an Essex club in the division below us but were told he had been offered over 4 times what our best paid player is on. Crazy – if it is true.
Hopefully some good news in the coming days but no promises – watch this space or the club website.
