    How many more times is this going to happen to a club?

    Chairmen or owners like Connett are a cancer on the game. Don’t let them in in the first place.

    Fans have got to realise that they need to be pro-active and set up Supporters Trusts to try and get shares and a place/s on their respective boards or try and own it totally.

    People promissing to bankroll clubs are no answer. Fans need to wake up to the reality that you can’t spend more than you bring in, even if it does mean slow progress.

    It leads to far more hapiness in the long run.
