Here's an educated guess: I reckon Jim was told,maybe back in the summer, by these bullshitters running the club that there was investment coming in very soon and he agreed to make do with what he had,diplomatically saying he would give existing players their chance. Somebody at,or very close to the club,from what i have understood,has been putting it around that investment was imminent. Now we've been hearing this for ages. Jim has tried his best under circumstances but even he is now losing patience as he sees the obstacles to making the neccessary improvements. Whoever is making the decisions at the club is/are tinpot,totally amateur and without any foresight or ambition...people enjoying playing the role as directors or whatever but not wanting to cede control. I'm going to keep repeating this but these lot running the club have no right to expect the level of support they get from the fans+ HTH FREE work + The players fund+ the ludicrous matchday prices they charge for beer/food etc+ the Cup runs......and then they have the f**king gall to increase the prices by 20% or more, let go some of our best players and NOT even replace them for a season in the division above! Of course we're going to struggle,it's a shambles. I reckon these owners are just after getting as much income back into their own pockets at the risk of squad investment and potential buyers are being put off deliberately. Of course i could be wrong,but ask yourself,if they've had so much interest in the club(as they said) over the past years,who is causing the delay? Are we really to believe it's all down to bad luck of EVERY potential buyer just never completing? Strange!
