    Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that Iron Bru has the feeling of the Marie Celeste?

    Whilst we, the participant passengers, sit below decks chatting amongst ourselves, it seems as if the crew has taken to the lifeboats and skedaddled!

    Where is Captain Blanchard and his trusty crew of moderators? What’s happened to First Mate Ellis and Coxswain Mell? The last podcast was five weeks ago.

    This time last year we were entertained by conversations with legends such as Steve Torpey, Andy Keogh and Paul Hayes. And what happened to that Iron Stats offering we were promised?

    Not really got my money’s worth on Patreon this month!

    It would also appear that the ship’s cat has left the stricken vessel too, as we are witnessing a plague of far-right rats that spout racial hatred and a couple of trolls lurking below decks that slobber forth at every opportunity. In times past they’d have been sent packing!

    And as the days and weeks pass we seem to be drifting ever closer to that iceberg.

    SOS!

    Captain, crew, moderators. Can you hear us?

    Just like our beloved football club, we’re in danger of being shipwrecked!

    BTW “What’s going on?” Was the title of a seminal album by the late, great Marvin Gaye. Dating from 1971 it was a concept album that played upon the social injustice prevalent in the US at the time. I’m sure it’s up there in Big J, LK & Alcy’s list of favourites.

    Maybe it is just a microcosm of all things SUFC

    Dwindling participation, poor/absent management which leads to very poor content on show so you’re just left with people who cannot wait to take their seat and boo as loudly as possible.

    Potential topics for discussion:

    1. Given where we were when Swann took the helm, have things improved under Swann’s tenure?
    2. Is the current squad big / good enough to stay up next season?
    3. Is the 2021/22 transfer budget too small?
    4. Does Cox have enough glitter to sprinkle on the turd that is the current squad?
    5. Are there any signs of development of the ground?
    6. Is Swann all hot air?
    7. Ideas for showing the board just how dissatisfied we are with the way they’ve ruined our club!

    Some good interviews lined up. KVV, Karacan and a few more on the horizon. We can’t conduct any interviews until their contracts expire though…

    Bare with us!

    It must be the hot weather, encouraging us to strip off.

    To sum up on the question.

    No one knows because no one gets told anything. Said on numerous occasions supporters get talked at as opposed to engaged with. Perhaps the plan has worked perhaps it hasn’t.

    If Marvin Gaye was still around he could certainly tell us What’s Going On.
