Now the dust has settled

And no we are not talking about the volcanic stuff. Monday was a devastating day for most addicks, but if you support the club for almost 40 years you learn to pick yourself up, brush yourself down and start all over again. And it does feel like that with the financial melt down the number of players out of contract etcetera, etcetera.

There are lots of rumours about what will happen over the close season, some like myself predict that by Christmas we will be in administration, but its uninformed conjecture. A few years ago now, I remember Prague Addick calling for the board to announce their intent for a forthcoming season, it did not happen then but I think now is the time for them to either reassure the fans as to our situation or manage our expectations for the coming 18 months.

I for one would love a return to the Championship next season, but if we have not got the resources then lets know about it now, rather than letting what sembelance of a team turns out next season be booed every game. An announcement by the board in the next few weeks would be really welcome. Although, don't hold your breathe.

manage expectations Kap? Don't they think they are currently capable of managing the club, I applaud the desire but am concerned as to them managing anything at the moment.

A vision statement from the board would be good at some stage. I think they have done their best in a difficult situation, albeit in part a result of mistakes they made. But we all make mistakes.

Agreed Kap, too much short-termism. I think we would all appreciate the honest truth from the board.

Its a start, what I would like to see is a 2 yr tactical plan and a five year strategic plan and before anyone says you can't plan that far ahead, the answer is you can but you also have to be flexible and it needs to be rolling to take into account changes in circumstances. When we were promoted to the Prem. Minty said it came earlier than planned, so there was a plan then, lets make sure we have one now.
