Spencer Says Sorry to County Fans
"It's alright blaming the last five years but this season it's the board's responsibility, the management's and the players' and we've failed the fans."
"The only positive from this season is the fans; they have my heartfelt apologies for what`s happened this year"
So says Mr Spencer Fearn, vice-chairman of SCFC.'
Well, Spencer. I agree. And I suspect many County fans will agree too.
A huge chunk of the car-crash that was season 2012-13 was down to the board. Some decisions were made which were jaw-dropping in their stupidity, but, with this little apology, I for one, can give you a bit more time before calling for your head.
I think you know what has to be done though Spencer. Board members in with relevant experience and passion (and funding?) are good moves.
Is it not time to move a couple of people on though?
The M.E.N. article can be read here and there is another quote which needs highlighting.
"What's happened this season is unacceptable; we've had three quality coaches in Jim Gannon, Darije Kalezic and Ian Bogie - and still couldn't avoid relegation."
Hold up a tic.
I think there is a strong body of opinion that says if Gannon had not been moved on we would not have been relegated. OK, things were not great, but it appeared playing staff costs were being continually being sliced into giving Jim Gannon a very difficult time.
So that was one board decision that put us on the road to Solihull Moors.
The subsequent SCFC appointment of Kalezic turned out to be bordering on comical and that together with loaning out half-decent players and replacing them with 1/10th decent players sealed our fate.
The late appointment of Ian Bogie, was a good one but the chap had no real chance.
Those decisions were 'unacceptable' and surely someone has to take the responsibility for them?
So Spencer, I appreciate the apology but there is more to be done on your part surely?
