Surely we should have some form of statement
From the Chairman as to where this Club ( that I love)
Are heading - this should be a regular undertaking- pre season - mid-season And post season - the fans surely deserve to know ( but please avoid the ďsmash this league ď statement. A few years ago !!

We're currently 5th in the league, but on the back of two bad results. Keep calm and carry on.

I've done Gibbo's statement for you!

Agreed. Itís high time for some kind of message from the man. One that can be twisted and construed to use as a stick to beat him and the club with.

I wonder why he doesnít do it as much these days.

I bet the OP really doesnít know what he wants to hear from Gibson but I bet itís something like

ďIíve decided that my limited resources are not sufficient for an ambitious club and the ambitions of our supporters. I have therefore concluded talks of a takeover from the a Chinese billionnaire conglomerate headed by Doon Nee Eggs Ist who will plough millions in to strengthen the squad. ď

Or something along those lines.

I could get his disappointment TheFair86 and don't doubt his love of the club, but most fans wanted which manager and which players?

The time for speaking will be at the time he changes things. He will then explain why.

I'm one of Gibbos biggest fans. He has done so much for this club but his lack of communication with the fans over the last few seasons has been really disappointing.

The great thing about him was that he really felt like one of us despite his obvious riches. But now he seems really out of touch and not care a hoot about the fans.

Again hence another reason I won't be renewing next year. He is literally saying nothing to reassure us that the club is trying to turn things around.

I like everyone else acknowledges and apreciates all he has done financially for the club. The rides he has taken us on. However for a few years I would question a lot of decisions made. Transfer policy, managerial appointments, millions of pounds pushed up the wall, walk up pricing just some.

As a club we are poorly run and, Iím afraid to say it, appear anything but professional in our business module, application across recruitment, management deficiencies all sadly lacking.

What can he say against such a charge sheet? I just wish he would sort out what appears to be a XXXXXX mess.

Tell you what i like, Sunderland up the road the owner does a regular podcast, possibly weekly maybe. Very open and honest and let's the fans know what's going on.

My boss mentioned it to me as he's a Sunderland fan and he loves listening to it.

Can you ever imagine MFC doing something similar? Wish they did but couldn't see it happening.

Pottomed - Gibson didn't save the club. He was a small part of a consortium that did. Others were far bigger parts. I wish people would stop with this revision of history and reversal of facts.

Gibson stopped giving a toss a long time ago. The only time we've heard from him in years is to plead poverty before the season ticket price hike. Poverty that was completely his own doing.

His heart hasn't been in it for years.

Why do we need to hear anything?

We're not in dire straits, we've not achieved something, we've not sacked a manager. We've had a poor run of form for the past few months, that's it.

So needy to want constant communication from your chairman when the situation doesn't warrant it.


West Ham's owners constantly talk to the fans, it has not helped them.
Aston Villa's previous owner was tweeting about every result, it just made him look a prick.

ChrisFinch what Absolute codswallop. Do you really believe the nonsense you write? You sound a rather bitter fella. The manís commitment financially has and remains huge. Your problem is either driven by some insane jealousy either for him or perhaps the millions poured into Man City and their ilk. His restructuring of the Clubs debt to equity just a few years ago ensured the future of the Club.

He hasnít got the financial muscle that other clubs have and yes he has made errors especially with choices of manager. But I for one am glad he remains our owner for now.

As fans talk about deserting the club he might rightly feel a bit agrieved but I am sure you will never bring yourself to understand that.

No bitterness whatsoever, the bloke has ripped off Boro fans for years and got away with it. He puts money into the club but we've also received an astronomical amount of money from the most lucrative tv deal in history and player sales. If he's ran the club into the ground to the point that he needs to rip off fans then that's down to his incompetence.

You are right pottomed, he doesn't owe the fans anything at all and we do owe him for saving the club (being a vital part of those who did) and for giving us fantastic times to 2008.

Most importantly we owe him for saving the club following the financial meltdown after relegation in 2009.

However, he is absolutely not the best chairman in this league, let alone wider than that.
He has made a series of howlers since 2016. He doesn't owe us anything for them, but he does deserve some criticism.

Is Pulis getting a new contract or not?

I think that might have a huge bearing on whether a lot of fans renew or not, cos no one wants to watch this terrible excuse for football.

What a friggin fool you can be at times

He would not have the club and status if it was not for the fans giving him his cult status.

Best chairman, are you having a laugh?

We are not the same club just kept the same name technically.

Am I grateful to him? Yes too right

Seems like his crown is slipping, there hasnít been much singing of thereís only one Stevie Gibson this season, and itís almost two years since we heard from him with his ďwe want to smash the leagueĒ speech. Maybe heís just tired of it all now. It does feel like death by a thousand cuts for the fans at the moment
