Some excellent comments have been made and I am in complete agreement.
It is time McCabe came out and gave everyone a statement of intent.
KB knows that I have been mulling over whether I would renew my season ticket and I have decided I will.
However, this is purely down to habit and not due to any expectation that the club will be in any better state or that that we will see any improvement in the entertainment value while the current manager and the current restraints are in place.
We need to know what we are exactly buying into.
As KB says - he has seen some of the inside'dealings' that occur within a league club and I think it safe to say that clubs are run in a different way to most businesses but there has to be a certain amount of trust between any club and it's supporters.
For any club to rely on the blind faith of it's fans to keep turning up week after week and be told half truths and under perform on the pitch is very dangerous.
As a club we have overpromised and under delivered and almost certainly over the years we have under achieved.
The chairman has suddenly become an 'absentee landlord', seemingly leaving everything in the hands of a certain Mr Birch.
Now Mr Birch may prove to be the man who will eventually turn things around. We just don't know because nobody puts out any information. I completely agree with KB when he says the figures don't add up. There does seem to be a very large difference between the ingoings and outgoings. Perhaps McCabe has taken money out. It is his money after all and he is more than entitled to do this.
If he is looking to get out alltogether, that's fine but are there any investors being lined up for a takeover.
Are we steamlining the club in order to make an investment more attractive ?
To any future invester, regular crowds inexcess of 23000 combined with a very low wage bill and overheads is bound to be more attractive. Especially when you consider for a comparatively low investment you can 'buy' promotion (provided you have the right management in place) and enter the riches in the PL.
I know we are slowly coming out of recession but SUFC must still be considered ripe for purchase for a variety of reasons.
At present there are too many unanswered questions and until McCabe comes clean I'm afraid they will remain unanswered.
