I imagine there was as bigger sigh of relief in the boardroom as there was from the fans at the final whistle!
I think Mel is genuine, he’s just made some big and costly mistakes that have cost him and the club dearly......(especially this season).
This should be a busy summer, lots of things need changing/putting right starting with the ownership. So hopefully this is the start of improved communication as the required changes are made.
Otherwise the rumour mill will start churning out rubbish in the void
It’s not a negative view at all, I think it’s positive that they’ve come out and started the process of moving forwards. I’m just waiting to see something materialise before I make any proper judgment.
I think the point is - hopefully this statement is just the beginning of things heading back in a positive direction.
In terms of communication with the fans and real action taken place in the summer to ensure the right recruitment, the right coaching staff and the right players are at the club for match day one of next season to make sure we are at least competitive next season - cause this season was beyond awful. Maybe the waghorn penalty really is the turning point, something we can pinpoint in about 5 years as to we wouldn’t be where we are without that goal. Here’s to hoping!
The club have offered he statement with a view to build/repair bridges, surely every reasonable fan should take it in that manner.
That was last season here’s to a better one next up with many of our problems resolved.
I don't understand the negativity towards the statement, its basically saying i know its not been good enough, but we will endevour to make it right, watch this space.
Seems fine by me, obviously today is not the time for going into specifics, but acknowledging the fact its not good enough is a positive statement in my opinion.
I feel better having read that than if they hadnt posted anything at all.
The words of MM. I heard he personally apologised to some fans outside PP yesterday for “ the season you’ve had to endure”.
I hope the Club can all get together soon - perhaps a Fans Forum to explain what’s in store for next season. I don’t know why but I have a great sense of optimism for us next year.
I like that. Now, we know talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words but I’m pleased that someone thought it a good idea to put that out.
I’m very pleased the efforts of those at the ground yesterday was recognised. Hey, maybe that’s why the players went outside after the game, not for finishing 22nd, to thank the supporters for their encouragement. Who’d be embarrassed by that ? 🤷♂️
You know, I was going to say, “a classy statement - accepting this year hasn’t been acceptable, recognising the fans and offering an apology” and wondering how long it would take for someone to post a negative view. It seems to have taken you less than a minute.
