Yet another 'stick' to beat the new regime with i see...

We have gone from completely volunteer run to a major 'global' business in the space of 6 months or so. It takes time to make the infrastructure changes needed to run it smoothly.

Demand for merchandise and season tickets has tripled in the last 6 months. Did anyone really think the previous way would cope?

Personally, this season is going to be one of transition. I can't see everything being ironed out until ready for next season. It will mean inconveniences, errors and frustration.

It is only to be expected under a leap of such size. Behind the scenes staff will be being brought in, systems upgraded and new ones put in place. It isn't going to happen in a week, a month or even 6 months!

We wanted this chance to be competitive on the pitch again, so we have to accept that things aren't always going to be as slick off the pitch.

If we are still complaining about the same things 12 months from now, then yes, it will have been a shambles.

Do any of us really know what the new owners are having to work with, what was in place at takeover etc? Probably not, yet we are all making assumptions everything must have been perfect before hand.

Yet we only had just over 2000 season tickets to deal with. A similar amount of shirts to sell (over a whole season) and a lot less media attention than now.

Grit your teeth, make reasonable suggestions or complaints. It can only get better as things settle and staff are brought in. Patience is apparently a virtue!
