Jeff Bonser speaks

Jeff Bonser speaks

No matter what he says there will be people who view it differently. Thats a fact of footballing life. So I will inser the link at the end of the article so you can read it for yourself.

Interesting points include his comments on Fryatt and Leito, both of whom he states desired to leave also saying Jorge wanted to leave ASAP not at the end of the season as stated in the press. As for Fryatt he says it was wrong to stand in his way, as he desired a higher level of football. As for the monies recieved this seems to have been spent on loan players wages.

As for not replacing the strikers it would appear that the blame lies at the door of the manager. Bonser says funds for loan players was made available and it was up to the manager what players in what positions were signed...fair comment I would say.

As for the playing budget, all in all it was suposed to be one of the biggest in the division so to end up relegated smacks of more mis management.

The financial picture this season is bleak Bonser states that he has loaned the club 1.2million in interest free loans backs and other directors have loaned another half million. He states that it has taken three years to get financial stability following ITV digital etc, he states the club would have folded three years ago if it was not for the loans. He also cites Rotherham and Gillinghams 5 million debt to show we are not aloan in this sense.

The future in a finacial sense seems to be better as he expects the next set of results to show an improvement and a return to finacial stability.

As for the managers position, an appointment is expected shortly and will be a board choice the aim is to get promotion at the first attempt but is aware that the choice of manager will not necessarily be greeted by universal approval.

He also said that there are some exciting projects in the pipeline...all very hush hush at the moment, I have heard rumours on these which I will comment upon tomorrow.
