I don’t think it was unreasonable for Hurst to expect a better budget or more staff. By the same token, I don’t think he’s doing himself any favours by continually crabbing about it.

Regards the way the club is run, it now no longer needs a change...it desperately has to change. The club is burning money keeping Blundell Park open as opposed to advancing the never-ending new stadium project. Which neatly brings me on to Extreme Leisure....whatever happened to them?

People act like Hurst is roaming down the street rambling like a mad man. He's asked questions, and he answers them. Considering he's since been a championship manager, I'm sure he's over it.

Parachute payment didn't exist for teams relegated to the conference when we did. They have only come in recently.

I think you will find they were called " solidarity payments " when we went non-league and  I do believe we got £240,000 for 1 season only.

Quoted from lukeo
The owner and majority share holder has to come out and name his price. Stop all this nonsense, open up, be honest and tell everyone what you are willing to take to walk away.

People who know me know I'm not usually one for this kind of bashing but from what I was told today everything a lot of posters have said about the majority share holder is true... Ex manager at the game today and hes opened up and backed up what a lot of people on here have said about being given no money, genuinely wanted to stay but got given a next to nothing budget and wasn't allowed to offer a contract to a certain player (who is now playing championshipp football!)

I think with a half decent budget MJ will be a decent manager for us and although results arent great at the moment I'm behind him. Utm


Do any other football club owners come out and do this? I can't think of another club where the owner has said the club is up for sale and I want x amount for it. Maybe the clubs in financial ruin that get sold for £1, but that's only because the guy selling has far more invested in loans and wants them back and the sale of the club is to find somebody who guarantees the payback of the loans...

Even if Fenty does come out and say how much he wants, it'll only be used as something else to beat him with. I thought it was common knowledge that he wants his money back, so that's not a difficult number to work out.

As for Hurst, what a bitter little man he is. He was given a budget and had to stick to it, what use is complaining about it years later? I was under the impression that we lost money the first couple of years under Hurst, we certainly didn't make much. Where is the rest of the money that he should have had coming from?

Who knows....maybe they are still involved in delivering the new stadium but us fans get fed little information on how things are going
