I know you probably don't look in on this board, but if you do, please take heart from the fact that many people want you to succeed. There is a minority of people who have it in for the club and it's owners - and have it in for you and Stuart because you were appointed by them. This is a sad state of affairs and it is largely historical because there are those that have always resented Delia Smith for having the temerity to become the majority shareholder in the first place - and have carried that resentment right the way through since 1996 !
You have been given a task to transform the club from what it was, with a whole plethora of new players last season, a development that is still carrying on with key players being sold and new ones coming in this season. Congratulations for keeping your cool in spite of the difficulties this whole scenario represents, be assured that many fans support what the club is doing and appreciate the efforts of yourself to get some cohesion and consistency into our football team. We clearly have some very good players and it will be hoped that as the season progresses they will settle down to the task at hand and we will enjoy better results.
We know you will be hurting from results like Saturday's but please keep your enthusiasm and love for the club going, ultimately we all want the same thing - a successful football team and you are better placed to know what to do than fans, some of whom think they have all the answers.
It is what it is - a fantastic football club with great fans - the more sensible fans know it is a long season and that it has only just started. Others can't see beyond the length of their noses, but once we get those results going all this negativity will dissipate and things will seem a lot more positive.
Viel Gluck und alles Gute fur den Rest der Fussballsaison!
