Curious about people's reactions to this? Not Ken's fault for me. Players have a lot to answer for.

I find it quite sad that Ken is having to apologise to the fans, it should be the players - individually - and the coaching staff who should be apologising while Ken scowls at them one by one !

You've nothing to apologise for Ken !

no where near enough im afraid utmost repect for ken davy but the coach is dead in the water after that performance at a serious club he would have gone this morning, in addition the captain should not wear a claret and gold shirt again. nice guy ken but people are taking him for a ride.

No, not because of his faith in the club, but because he, as chairman needs to be acting and removing one or two from the payroll, probably a few weeks ago to be honest.

Ken has no need to apologise, he built this club from the bottom

But the clubs at the top would have sacked their coach weeks ago
Now at midnight all the agents
And the superhuman crew
Come out and round up everyone
That knows more than they do

It's doubtful that the top clubs would have got into this situation in the first place...

To be serious -and it certainly is barring a miracle , lets take off the rosy specs

1 We`d had the "shuffle" tactics kicking in just prior to the announcement
2 After showing Brett the door (for reasons not confirmed to the fans ...uuummm) we slot Grixy in at FB and most say "he`s doing OK -- quite happy !!!" but then hey ho here we go!!
3 "Someone" then decides we`ll go for Eden and we`ll pop him at FB and where do we move Grix --oh pop him at SO and lets give Kev a run at LF -sounds logical as LoD is out for a bit
4 .............. and then move
5 ...............and then move etc etc etc

For those who went to Perpignan
I felt it was a flat performance there --but ok
Many return pointless
Long Journey
Away from families etc

Then the slide started

And the shuffling continued

(and was allowed to continue.................... why oh why ???)

We are in all but name a LTD CO
and decisions that look so sweet re "cheap" season tickets only really benefited the faithful
The 10000 never transpired --and is / was never gonna do without some silverware IMO
"Outsiders" aint gonna be converted if the clubs name isnt engraved on summat --sad but fact
Oh --season on season we`re improving so ............
Sorry in Hudds .....doesnt count believe me !!

So when the 1 win in 7 enters the calcs -- and theres talk that ST`s will have to return to realistic prices ---theyre both going the wrong way --even for the staunchest fans on hard times !?

So sorry folks .............no good KD subsidising the injured donkey
Solve it !

1 You cant have NB with a foot in both camps --just imagine if Saints had reached the semis and ...................(doesnt bear thinking about!) But its happening --so lets move on!

2 Weve heard the "best coach Ive ever played under" quotes
The changing rooms a happy place etc etc
It surely isnt at the moment as KD`s apologising
So whats happened
Will the fans be told -I doubt it
But hey we`re in a mess and its painful to watch -- but by the way get yer wallet out as we`re gonna put it right - and as such it`ll cost you that bit more to support

Its not even sales blurb
If the vac isnt working -- you`re gonna struggle to sell the new model at a higher price

Sorry --at the moment --unless ALL concerned get a grip and win Sunday and after that as well -- were in a bad situation
And IMO it aint the fans fault its like this

I initially had a bus of 49 going to Salford which has sadly dwindled to 19 !!
I hope Ivor hasnt had the same reaction as I know he too has worked hard drumming up support

Why as it occurred ?
Because recently - as a team with serious winning aspirations --we havent turned up -dress it up any way you like!!
Seriously why should they --many who were "Possible future converts"

Sorry KD
We`re often asked to "bring a friend" in a sincere attempt to boost our franchise credibility

We only stand a chance of doing that if the teams giving credible performances
We arent party to "board room " decisions - we just turn up and pay up
You are in charge of the board who appoint the coach and sign the players who the coach selects and its clear to most posters that since the France trip and on --it aint right whatever the press columns say

But please dont apologise
Performances like we`ve seen -you, like us, cant do anything about once the lads are kitted up

But please find out why its come to this and sort it - theres more to this I feel than a drop in form --its more like strike action !!
Id like YOU personally to talk to those who are going to be here next season
You know who THEY are if we`re not sure
If theyre unhappy --try find a solution -and for the benefit of us all who`ll be still behind em for the rest of the season --ASAP
And if we cant totally reverse the situation on Sunday -lets at least give a good showing
We could still resurrect our season but those who run the club and those who`ll represent us on Sunday hold the key now
Tell em to forget the distractions and show some pride in the C and G and tell em to turn up for those of us who are turning up
Then we can hopefully put this avoidable episode behind us and the attendance figures YOU long for have a greater chance of coming to fruition!
I and many others really hope so !!

Difficult to disagree with any of that.
