Here's the 'trade press' slant on things:-

Of course, we shouldn't always believe what we read in the press, but in the absence of the club saying anything..........

And where's Mike Latham in this mess he's helped to create? He was writing more lengthy press releases than you could shake a stick at in the good times, shouldn't he be trying to steady the ship by at least asking the fans to 'stick with it', or is he abandoning his post too?
Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence. In other words, it is war minus the shooting.

Maybe Mike can only say what he's told he can say?

going back in time to the late nineties when players insurance hadn't been paid and operations cancelled while players where in the ops rooms

Alan, Mike Latham is the Chairman :shock: I must admit I laughed when he was appointed,as a person a very nice guy, as a Journalist and writer, very talented, but a Chairman :shock: ,I think he still guests on the TV show Pointless,a lot of folk applauded his appointment, not me, just a guy doing as he was told.

All these reports keep coming out yet the news from the Club is deafening,how will we ever attract players to sign for us with our record?I've heard stories of forfeiting the Fev game on Sunday, surely this won't happen, will it?Cmon Leigh , tell us something,the Fans are so important to a Club. Yet Leigh Centurions ignore us.

The irony to all this is that Mike is a fantastic communicator, Ian - both through the written and spoken words. However, like any good media personality, he is only as good as his script. When he isn't writing that script, and his head 'scriptwriter' chooses not to write one, we get the 'Sounds of Silence' - "Hello darkness, my old friend........!"(apologies to Simon & Garfunkel :wink: )

Alan, I've already stated Mike talents, however as far as I know he is still Chairman, but in what capacity?If Derek walks will he stay?What about the other guy ie Steve Openshaw?Are we about to see a clear out?I presumed current contracts end in October but when?So many questions,there is more info coming out of North Korea,Kim Jong could be ready to take over.

So the statement is now out and at least they've gone to some length to try and explain the situation but it still reads as though it's everyone's fault but their own. Granted there's an apology at the end but they still don't seem to have taken any real ownership of blame.
