Just heard Ollie on Humberside .....
He’s obviously unhappy with the result but sounds very down..
The last thing he needs is people telling him what he obviously knows!
We need to support him ....we’re all town aren’t we?
No doubt the red crosses will come .....

No red cross from me, it's not just Ollie that needs our support, so do the players, some young lads that will no doubt be feeling pretty low right now.

In reality it’s being used to cover players wages which is what it was always meant to do, the problem being while income is lower it’s not the level of player we all actually wanted.

The board had already set the player budget at 1.5 million for the season regardless of the salary cap and regardless of any other financial gains or losses, so we were always going to get the squad we got.

Any monies generated from any other source will just allow us to go for longer before the sh1t hits the fan.

Ollie will have my full support until/if things start looking desperate for us in the table.

Let's hope Ollie doesn't get to the stage where he has to give himself a vote of confidence.

There's absolutely zero case for excuses. The board voted for the salary cap which means A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD FOR EVERY CLUB IN THIS LEAGUE. Of all seasons, this season should be a time to not wrap up the club's performance in cotton wool. Every club has had Covid to contend with (some in worse hit areas than us) and every club can only spend the same on playing budget. Sick and tired of our club reaching for excuses and the same band of supporters letting them get away with it. First two league games we've been pathetic, our pitch is pathetic, our off field organisation has been pathetic, our proactivity is pathetic, and customer interaction especially online has been pathetic. Clinging to excuses is not a recipe for success and other clubs have just got on with it and coped better.. full stop. It's no good rolling out honest Philip Day bemoaning circumstances because our competition have had to deal with the same set of circumstances. The club including IH have wallowed in it, done nothing themselves to improve the financial situation and have brought this very bad start upon themselves. Losing interest, don't buy into anything the club is doing and the football on offer isn't worth a tenner..
