Coventry City - The Truth would be nice...for a change
IT seems that SISU have a very low opinion of those who turn up week in week out. The list of what they say they will deliver and then don't is as long as your arm.
• Talks with the Council
• Announcing MK was staying
• Announcing a summer transfer budget as large as the previous season
Now it seems the Premiership loans that were mentioned when Ben Turner left, won't be happening either.
Yes we know funds are limited but if you can't deliver then why make the statement in the first place?
All these statements and promises do is wind-up the fans when it does happen, thus increasing the loathing that City fans have for them.
They state that they want to build a relationship with the fans. That would be a start but relationships are built on trust and quite frankly there is none between SISU and the fans.
We have a young squad, with a couple of more experienced players added then I think we could manage to stay in this division. The cost of relegation to Division one would vastly out weigh the cost of a couple of loans.
We recently gave new contracts to McPake and Bell. Yet as far as we know no offer has been made to Clingan. This seems daft even using SISU's blinkered logic
Firstly signing him up would be a good news story with the fans.
Secondly from a financial point of view he is a saleable asset. If he is under contract, like Turner, then if we have to sell him, we would get a larger fee for him. At present we could sell him for a small fee in January or for nothing in June.
He has played more games that either Bell or McPake and is a far more integral part of the team so it does seem strange that there has been no offer made or even mentioned.
Like I say it is time that SISU started to treat the fans with the respect and honesty that we deserve.
