Well at least you made an attempt an answer of sorts but you don’t mention the debt accrued under this chairman who has achieved nothing like the success Mr Wharton did with a much more manageable financial position and you never mention the ground grab that has occurred due to this chairman’s financial mismanagement. Wharton never promised that much but delivered a lot more then was expected and clubs like ours very rarely achieve long term sustained success due to the amount of financial clout we can generate through our size. The vast majority of Iron fans realise this and are happy to follow a club achieving occasional success but striving to play decent football whilst bringing youngsters through to help careers and provide financial stability through transfers.
This chairman promised much from a new stadium to a revamped stadium to the hope of championship football but none of this has materialised in 8 years of his stewardship. What has occurred is one promotion, two play off semi final defeats, a relegation and a financial disaster for such a small club. The biggest loss is the ownership of the football club for the first time in its history due to financial bungling. If you addressed that point rather then slag off genuinely concerned fans who raise these issues then maybe a healthier debate could ensue.
