    Tom, with you mate on that, Tom they’re not men , men don’t hide from their responsible, but that lot of children did, they have to go! I see them as being rotton apple’s in a barrels of fruit. Cowards of the first order ,nobody gives up like they did, I hope their reward is finger pointing all their playing days as being Shiite in the game. Load of shite.

    Call me daft but are these new board members getting paid a wage? If so then why are we flooding the board with new recruits and yet find ourselves making up to 100 people redundant.

    Surely what these board members earn, based on the figure that Fox earned last year (1.5 million) is more than what 100 staff would earn! I mean tea ladies, club shop staff, food sellers, programme sellers and even stewards wouldn’t be on much more than the minimum wage, would they?

    Given that a majority of these staff are probably only employed on a part time basis it doesn’t make sense, to me anyway, how the club can justify paying an increased number of new board members a wage, that is no doubt considerably higher than what the minimum wage is, whilst making redundancies elsewhere.

    I’m sure there is a simple explanation.

        I heard the idea of bringing in vending machines was discussed at the last board meeting but Hollis didn’t want to increase the electricity bill.

    Ps they just might ask the fans to find time to bring their flymos to help maintain the pitch.

      Fans may also be asked to donate any unwanted paint to help maintain the pitch markings.

        Stubs, here’s one for you, due to the cutbacks they are giving out yellow coats to the first 50 who come, and 50 stewards are to receive dismissal notice, Lerner estimates a saving of £5,000 a season. Problem is will 50 go to a game.?

    BTW Steve Sidwell just scored the winner for Brighton.

    Some here saying that they didn’t want Hughton but I dare say he won’t want us as he might be Premier League next season anyway at this rate.

    Stubbs – to be fair the current board are not responsible for the mess we are in and have to deal with what they find. Whether we like it or not someone has to take responsibility for running the club and be paid – the last board were overpaid and failed and as a result ordinary people suffer. Fox and Almstadt have gone and I hope that Riley and the CCO (whose name I can’t spell) soon follow.

    I’m not defending the injustice of people losing their jobs through incompetence, merely stating the facts. I know how they feel as I lost my job (at least partly) because those above me didn’t do theirs.

    I do agree though that it’s the players that will largely ‘get away with it’ which is surely unjust.

    Ultimately however, Lerner has to take the major portion of the blame for a combination of poor judgement and bad investment decisions.

    The team is dead.
    Now we can only hope for a speedy resurrection.
