Surely you don't expect me to believe that a reserve team win at Cardiff changes any of the fundamentals at the club?
Regarding hating other fans, it is very important that those fans who are numpties ought to be hated without mercy, as it is they who are keeping the Suffolk Socialists in office.
For my part, I would like to ask my own: "Where are they now?" To all those numpty fans who wanted McNasty out. Where are you now??|
As Tilly has said, McNally resigned off his own bat, and the board agreed with his first thought that he should go. I don't think there is any great mystery as to how and why that happened, and it had nothing much to do with fans protesting.
Our two recent relegations from the Premier League coincided with and in large part were directly attributable to botched summer transfer windows - 2013 (van Wolfswinkel) and 2015 (missing crucial targets despite the board having made the money available).
Given that as CEO under the old system McNally was in effect the football director, in charge of transfer strategy, he probably felt resposnible for those two failures, and even if he had second thoughts the other directors understandably thought he was.
