Cherries: Feeney departs - but no new faces for Bradbury

First published in Sport Bournemouth Echo: Photograph of the Author by

BOSS Lee Bradbury was last night left to count the cost of losing another key member of his Cherries squad – and a failure to add to his diminishing resources.

Bradbury saw winger Liam Feeney fly the nest, the 24-year-old completing an 11th-hour transfer deadline day move to Championship outfit Millwall.

Feeney, who will join ex-Cherries star Josh McQuoid at the Den, penned a three-year deal after the two clubs had agreed an undisclosed fee, believed to be in excess of £200,000.

His former club Salisbury will receive a share of the fee, believed to be 20 per cent, while Cherries also had a sell-on inserted into the deal that took Feeney to south London.

Feeney’s existing contract with Cherries had been due to expire next summer and the Londoner would have been entitled to leave for nothing.

Cherries are understood to have held talks with Feeney regarding a new deal at the end of last season, although the player chose to keep his options open.

Feeney, who joined Cherries from Salisbury for £10,000 in January 2009, becomes the fifth player to be sold by the club in the past two months and the eighth in the past year.

His departure put the finishing touches to a frustrating day for manager Bradbury whose exhaustive attempts to bolster his squad drew a blank.

Bradbury and assistant Steve Fletcher, together with chief scout Steve Gritt, worked around the clock in a bid to sign a striker, their efforts partly hindered by the timing of Feeney’s exit.

A late bid for Crawley Town frontman Matt Tubbs – who had previously been released by Cherries on two separate occasions – was rejected by the League Two newcomers.

Bradbury also made numerous enquiries for other targets and will now have to explore the loan market, once a seven-day cooling off period has elapsed next week.

Discussing Feeney’s sale, Cherries chairman Eddie Mitchell told the Daily Echo last night: “I think Liam had made it clear to Lee that he wanted to go.

“We didn’t ask Millwall to come in for him and we didn’t want him to go. It has been the same all during the close season.

“I think it has been ongoing for a period of time, it just took the agent this long to put it together.

“I believe Millwall offered him £4,500 a week on a three-deal year. What player isn’t going to want to go. I know I will get the stick for letting him go but he could have walked anyway in six months’ time.

“If he wasn’t going to perform for us, there wasn’t much else we could have done, only try to get as much as we could for him. Under the circumstances, it is a good deal.”

Meanwhile, Cherries defender Mitchell Nelson also headed out of the Seward Stadium when he joined Conference outfit Lincoln City on loan, initally until October 1.

Lies Lies and more Lies thats all you get from the managment/board at AFCB.

PR has never been good but its just getting worse.

Hard to support a team which is run by people that lie to those that help to keep them in business.

Honesty is all we ask, at the end of the day 200K is good money for Feeney but why lie about letting him go.

So start being honest and tell us where all the money is going!!

I'm sad that we have lost another skilful player and not got anyone in. But, I don't care about all the speculation concerning Bradbury, Mitchell and Co. It is conjecture and nothing more.

What I do care about is that Liam's head has been turned. He was no longer an AFC Bournemouth player mentally. If we want to speculate, we could wonder if Feeney wanted away during the Walsall match. If a player doesn't want to perform for us, then let him go and take the cash while we can.

Let's get 100% behind those who DO want to play for us.

Funny how a number of clubs lower than AFCB were getting loan STRIKERS and DEFENDERS from premiership and championship sides, but the farce that at present is AFCB can not sign anyone or anything.

I have stayed clear of commenting ver the past few months but read more and more BS coming from this club.

Mr Mitchell, I have 3 suggestions for you.

1. Stop throwing money into a premises that you do not own, and spend the clubs money inside the club i.e. players and fans facilities, (yes thats those people that pays you and your family to be here)

2. Give up going to this rag - nothing you say is believed, and to the echo stop printing the false stories coming from him.

3. Find your reciept (if you actually got one) for the brand new ice bath and return it. It is not enticing players in and it is not keeping the players here.

4. Pick up your filefax and you sun tan lotion take whatever you are owed by the club (which should be nothing as you have always stated you have not/ will not put your own money in) and leave.

5. Before you go, as the style of business you work to goes, I would like to buy a season ticket and pay £20 per month. This is about the going rate that you sell everything for within your business isn't. sell for £400k and accept payments of around £20k per month. Or is my money not good enough for you to treat me fairly?

Absolute disaster. Why oh why are we waiting until the last day of the transfer window to try and do business? Sure, they got Macdonald in but the holes in the team are there for all to see. Byrne is weak at right back, Cooper is not a centre back and now we lose yet another player. It is simply not good enough. Before we sell we should have deals lined up. We have been out bid, out manoeurvered and to be fair, the players have been let down. If the squad believed in what was being done then surely they would not all have walked? Can't see any other club in the league losing so many players, albeit for money, in such a short time. And a manager. Strikes me something is rotten in the relationships at the club.

Less bothered about Liam's departure than Mitchell's FAILURE to deliver on his promise of new signings.

Lee, I feel for you as you've really been stitched up. You need to identify who is with you and who is capable. Get rid of the deadwood hangers-on. Fletch is a definite to keep at the very least for his ambassadorial role. Who are the role models in the club that the lads should look to? Easy to identify a few that should be out - but YOU need to make these lads YOUR team - forget the incompetence of the board - your team that will follow YOU, not them.

I predicted a struggle this year back in March and got a lot of stick, but here we are.

Alan Hanson remarked recently that an over performing team creates problems because the fans expect it to last. He can say that again !

Yeovil wanted Macdonald badly, but they couldn't match our cash. But when that happens to us, it's EM's fault and he is supposed to put more cash in. Some logic that. Mac saved Yeovil from relegation last year. Hopefully he can do the same for us this time round. Up the Cherries !!!

I doubt whether Bradbury was told the truth either or that Feeney was offered an improved contract last Season. As a Club our name stinks, we don't pay the going rate for this Division, indeed some Div 2 teams pay more and who wants to join a sinking ship. The Club is going the way so many of Mitchell's businesses have gone in the past, indeed with a winding up petition due for hearing later this month - present! I am far from convinced that the Club is in the healthy financial position claimed, the Accounts for 2010 shewed a very poor position and to be in a position to the debt free ( other than Mitchell and Mostyn) with a million in the bank, would require an unbelievable turn a round. I can only see gates dropping like a stone now, which will have a disastrous effect on income. Gates back to the sub 4000 of the Quinn era. For the very same reason, rubbish football, but this time self inflicted.

What is the point of having scouts who come back with nothing? The team has been asset stripped, what next? Steve Gritt and Lee Bradbury should not be working at the last minute to find someone - they knew these departures were going to happen so why the wait? Eddie Mitchell does not seem to know how to run a business. He seems to run it with blinkers on with the most short term view one can think of. So we have a lacklustre team and falling attendances. Great.

If the asset stripping that Mitchell is conducting was actually because he was buying back the ground, then In would not have a problem with it.

However, I just believe that it is going into Mitchell and his families pockets. If this is the case then we do not want this parasite at the club any longer!!!!

I am really deflated about the situation with our club and I fear that we are heading for league 2.

To buy back the ground would make good sense, however to buy back the ground whilst Mitchell is at the helm would be a disastrous move. That would give him exactly what he wants and he could then fulfil his ambition by knocking down the stadium and build houses on the land. Get this piece of slime out of this club now.

Jontee - indeed an excellent post, i totally agree we should get rid of anyone who doesn't want to play for us however when you sell

Howe/JT
Pearce
Wiggins
Hollands
Robinson
Ings
Mcquoid

And only replace with McDonnald there are going to be issues. I thought we'd struggle last season as it was a similar side that had struggled previously, I'm certain we will this time round.

All of the above I can cope with, what gets me is releasing an article stating were on the verge of signing a striker when what was true was we had a fight to retain Feeney!

The club will still be in a poor financial state because of low gates, but none of this ever comes across because the books are so guarded. How many tickets do we need to sell each week to break even?

All we can do is get behind the boys on Saturday, hope Harry sends a top kid our way, and demand a bit more honesty from the board.

In all fairness if Feeney wanted to go this was probably the best outcome for the club considering he could walk away for nothing in 10 months time.
It's easy to slate Liam for not wanting to stay, but why would he turn down £4500 per week in wages guaranteed for three years to stay with a club going nowhere (except League Two or lower) and offering peanuts? Mitchell wouldn't have paid 25% of what Millwall offered, so what would any of us have done faced with that choice?
Anyway, cheerio Liam and thanks for one or two good performances.
The biggest surprise to me about deadline day is that Pugh & Jalal are still here! I was also expecting Carlisle to come in with a bid for Arter. Mitchell must be gutted that these guys are all still on the wage bill, but at least he's saved Nelson's £50 per week by offloading him to Lincoln.
And what about Bradders? He is being undermined at every turn by Mitchell which begs this question: when is he going to grow a pair and quit on principle? Surely he can see that Mitchell is setting him up as the fall guy when we're propping up League One soon?
Fletch too! The big man has become the quiet man and is in danger of appearing to be just another Mitchell lapdog. What's your take on things Steve or has Mitchell slapped a gagging order on you too?
And finally, to our glorious chairman. The man who a year ago was saying AFCB would be the south coast top dogs. How are we going to be that then Mr. Mitchell when our south coast neighbours have invested in their teams (unlike you) and been promoted to the Championship as a result?
Does anyone who supports AFC Bournemouth still believe Mitchell is a good man with the interests of the club at heart? Surely most have woken up now to the fact that the man has no interest in football and is just using the club as a cash cow for himself, his family, his other businesses and his hangers on? He is asset stripping AFCB into oblivion, yet there are still some who think he's a good guy and doing a great job!

It will be interesting to see how Feeney does in the Championship. In my opinion he has struggled with the step up to League 1 but time will tell. Either way a good profit made on the initial outlay. My concern is the failure to find any new replacements which I think is down to LB.

If he is as convincing in his talks with prospective new players as he is in after match interviews its no wonder players dont want to join. I suppose there is only so many ex-players he can sign.

Its gonna be a long hard season!

Firstly, I find it sad when an article with valid points is shot down immediately by those who no longer wish to see EM at the club. Jontee has made excellent points, which is sadly met with hostile criticism. Bradders got the job on the back of a couple of wins, which followed on to a ten game unbeaten run. In hindsight you can analyse that more than likely this is down to the Howe effect still having an influence on the team. Howe raised a bunch of players into a solid team, and the vultures circle our ground making offers to lure players away using a variety of methods, one only has to look how Barcelona behaved to lure Fabregas from Arsenal to see how player loyalties are affected in the modern game.

EM Haters please bear with me…

Anyway, players will leave clubs now simply to earn more money whether the play or not as we all live in society of greed, EM included here. Thus whether we should hold on to Feeney or not is down to pure business and get the money before his contracts expires. Modric is an exception as his contract is so long. But even on transfer deadline day top clubs are slashing squads look at how many players Tottenham and Everton have shifted out.

Anyway back to Jontee’s message, after Bradders 10 game winning run, he is quite right that with all the players we have just sold, our form was relegation form, which has carried on this year. Thus the morale of the squad is a managerial issue, once Howe left last year it is down to the present manager to keep the morale and the squad together and settled, but this has not happened and players have sought better fortunes. Hopefully now the transfer window has closed things can settle down, I think it was Boas who has said, that it is better to close the window when the season starts than to play the first few games with unsettled and hence disruptive players in your squad.

Also, who has the ultimate responsibility for scouting, note not putting the money in for purchases, but for the scouts to constantly seek, note and engage to sign players? Surely any team would always be constantly monitoring potentials players through youth league, non-league through to the premier league and abroad. So on the purchase of new players, one must question who is responsible to bring in the new players, not the question whether Mitchell wants to put the money in or not. Remember although a number of players have gone, Baudry has been brought in permanently, Gregory, McDonald and Barrett plus Doble on load (have I forgotten anyone?).

EM though has not been doing himself any favours through the PR. A week does not go by without him publishing a story in the media. He would be far better advised to keep quiet and concentrate behind close doors of getting on with his role. Unfortunately AFCB have never had a good luck when it has come to chairmen, and I doubt if the EM haters got their wish, we would ever get the perfect replacement. But as I said EM should keep quiet and let everyone at the club get on with their jobs. He is a flamboyant businessman, and unfortunately if you stick your head up in the trenches you will get shot at, which is what is happening due to the very poor way that the whole clubs conduct its PR. We as fans all want to know what is happening and it gets published, but it is better for success that more is kept quiet so our team is more settled, the fans are more settled and rival teams don’t poach our potential signings.

Reading all the comments of the last few days, correct me if I’m wrong someone, I think if you are worried about the club accounts there is a way you can purchase them through Companies House or somewhere, so you have an idea of what is going on with the money coming in and out. Also, with regard to building houses at DC, isn’t there a legal ruling saying that Kings Park is only for recreational use only and thus houses cannot be built on the land?

Anyway, in conclusion EM should be come less arrogant and get the PR side of the club sorted pronto even for the sake of publishing stories to keep the Echo from printing something on the back page (sorry Echo) and Bradders needs to getting the scouting and player recruitment side of the club into a well oiled machine (and hopefully get a couple of decent long-term loan signings in) and get the squad back to a unit with high morale ASAP now and back to winning ways.

Waiting now to be shot down….

What I do care about is that Liam's head has been turned. He was no longer an AFC Bournemouth player mentally. If we want to speculate, we could wonder if Feeney wanted away during the Walsall match. If a player doesn't want to perform for us, then let him go and take the cash while we can.

Let's get 100% behind those who DO want to play for us.
Well said. I think what will disappoint most if that we failed to get in a replacement before the window closed.

Absolutely. Can someone ask the same q for me. I bought six for our family! Couldnt even give my ticket away when I couldn't make the Walsall game. Last year someone would have snapped my hand off.

I'd heard some disturbing things coming out of our football club. Sadly they appear to be coming true.

EM will have his answers ready for tonight.When asked where the money has gone no doubt he will give examples e.g.buying players,improving the ground and other `issues`.As I`m unable to go could those who are going not let him fob you off with these answers,keep a note of how much has been spent on what and then ask and keep asking where the rest has gone,or what he is planning to do with it when the rest trickles in.After all if clubs can pay us in installments then we should be able to use that as collateral to pay other clubs.

I do hope that the critics turn out in force tonight and penetrating questions are asked and that they not allow themselves to be fobbed off. I too have no doubt that Mitchell will have mobilised support to shout them down. Some years ago I went to a Meeting of Creditors where this was done very effectively. He should be made aware of the majority view re his management of the Club. A for Feeney . strange that there was no mention before of an offer being made to him, that was rejected!!

You knew WE knew that he was getting himself a new contract somewhere else, so why the lies. I can not make the forum tonight but hope that everyone who does makes it an extremely uncomfortable evening for LB and EM. There are so many questions to ask
Why are we lied to at every point
How can other clubs get players when we seem incabable of doing so.
What has happened to all the transfer money taken in.
Why was Mitchell not true to his word and give Bradbury a war chest to buy players.
Why do all the players want to leave the club when they were all such a close knit team
What are the state of our accounts wich never seem to be published for all to see as other clubs do.
Do the sponsers think they are getting value for their money when the team has disintegrated before their eyes.
What has happened to the team I love they are being destroyed as we watch and are not being replaced like for like.
There have been many people on here complaining about the way our club is run but obviously none of the board or management team read these posts. I now see why the temporary stand was dismantled there would never be a need for it this season as the gates are going to continue to fall.
Please whoever goes tonight make it abundently clear that the fans who pay good money to go and NOT happy and need some answers and quickly

The best way to deal with people like him is not to come down to his low level. That really isnt that difficult with Mitchell.

Thank you for talking sense, without all the constant childish name-calling.

Who remembers when no transfers i.e. an embargo, led to a tight team that performed?

What I do care about is that Liam's head has been turned. He was no longer an AFC Bournemouth player mentally. If we want to speculate, we could wonder if Feeney wanted away during the Walsall match. If a player doesn't want to perform for us, then let him go and take the cash while we can.

Let's get 100% behind those who DO want to play for us.
Anfry as I am what you have said does make perfect sense. Feeney played his worst ever game against Walsall, and his head was somewhere else. I have tickets for tonight's forum so Lee, Eddie and Steve better turn up, or hell will really let loose! They have to answer some very awkward questions from the fans. Even John Williams said on Radio Solent on Tuesday night about the sale of just so many players "it is unusual" He also didn't beleive that Feeney was ill and did not beleive what Bradbury said about him playing for us against Notts County on Saturday. Is John going to the forum?

All I can say is AFC Bournemouth is well and truly screwed.
EM has replaced all the good players for average league 2 players. He is a compulsive liar and no one trusts him. It is obvious that he is keeping the money as in a few weeks/months he will be off.
LB does not have the balls to stand up to EM he should be held responsible for all team matters include how rubbish the team now is.

Well done to the players that have left us as it is obvious that they had a brain and could see this happening and I wish them all the luck.

Also I will not be attending anymore games as I am not given EM another penny. If anyone does attend I will be amazed, why would anyone want to support the liars at dean court??

I have stayed clear of commenting ver the past few months but read more and more BS coming from this club.

Mr Mitchell, I have 3 suggestions for you.

1. Stop throwing money into a premises that you do not own, and spend the clubs money inside the club i.e. players and fans facilities, (yes thats those people that pays you and your family to be here)

2. Give up going to this rag - nothing you say is believed, and to the echo stop printing the false stories coming from him.

3. Find your reciept (if you actually got one) for the brand new ice bath and return it. It is not enticing players in and it is not keeping the players here.

4. Pick up your filefax and you sun tan lotion take whatever you are owed by the club (which should be nothing as you have always stated you have not/ will not put your own money in) and leave.

5. Before you go, as the style of business you work to goes, I would like to buy a season ticket and pay £20 per month. This is about the going rate that you sell everything for within your business isn't. sell for £400k and accept payments of around £20k per month. Or is my money not good enough for you to treat me fairly?

I think mitchell and gang wont trun up and dont worry everyone,you cannot be removed from airing your views,if their lay a hand on anyone,then it can become a police matter and their can be charged along with mitchell.

MITCHELL WONT LEAVE OR RESIGN,you will need a army to get him out.

MITCHELL PLEASE RESIGN ALONG WITH LEE AND ANYONE THAT CANT STAND UP TO YOU.

Now just take a look back. Our results for the last 2 months of last season were relegation form. So any real surprise we are struggling this year ? I expected this last season.

Alan Hanson remarked recently that an over performing team creates problems because the fans expect it to last. He can say that again !

Yeovil wanted Macdonald badly, but they couldn't match our cash. But when that happens to us, it's EM's fault and he is supposed to put more cash in. Some logic that. Mac saved Yeovil from relegation last year. Hopefully he can do the same for us this time round. Up the Cherries !!!
These comments are sensible, the club is in the best financial condition for a very long time and maybe could buy back the ground. It will be great to add new players but not at crazy prices.

How do you know that the club is in the best financial condition? have you seen the books?
Can we really believe that EM has saved the cash?

I don't think so, open your eyes. It is clear that EM is not going to part with any of the money. He probably has already spent it.
How many times do you need to be lied before you see what EM really is?

.
WHAT PLANS DOES HE HAVE FOR KEEPING AFC BOURNEMOUTH OUT OF LEAGUE TWO NEXT SEASON ????????
.
I would be intrigued to hear the answer.
.
The next phase will be that other player will now start asking for transfers after realising that we are in fact going nowhere in the upwward direction. MacDonald now must be regretting signing for us in my view.

The entire management and board structure at Dean Court either seem to have forgotten that football is a business in the entertainment industry, or they (particularly the board), never had any interest in entertainment in the first place. Any event designed to entertain has to do just that, in order to attract paying customers. If it fails to entertain - and in this case it will due to inferior casting - there can only be one outcome. Some posters on here seem to think Mitchell is going to cut and run by selling up, but frankly, what is there left to sell - NOTHING! The only thing he is running is this club (over which his family have acquired complete control) into oblivion. Logic therefore tells me that the football side of his "purchase" back in 2009 was never his reason for becoming owner. I don't think anyone saw the success under EH coming, and this merely served to slow the big Mitchell plan, because unexpectedly a few good young players became valuable assets who could be cashed-in later, and that is the phase we have witnessed over the last few months. So where is all the money going/gone? I fear that the Mitchells are probably trying to secure a deal with the landlords of the ground to buy the ground back, not as a club asset but as a personal asset, or under the camouflage of one of the other companies they are involved with. Not, of course, that they want the ground. They want the land, simple as! They tested the water at Dorchester Town, got found out, and bailed out because suddenly the even more lucrative opportunity presented itself here. As I have said before, Edmund Mitchell never has been a fan of AFCB - he is a speculative property developer, nothing more, nothing less, and leopards don't change their spots!

why are so many of you surprised at whats going on regarding the ownership of our club afcb. when has afcb ever been run correctly. please tell me someone which era was there never a problem. Ive been going 30 odd years now and we have always been moaning about how our club is run.
the thing is mitchell is no different to the others. as for the signings thing were we not part of an embargo very recently and could not sign any players at all. were we not totally skint. suddenly everyone thinks we should be spending loads of money on players when we have never ever done this in the past. what makes you think just because we have sold a load of players we should buy loads back.
I am no mitchell lover but we have to see what he says after the forum to know what the plan is. coming on here slating him does not really help nor does boycotting the games.
All you people on here can go to the forum tonight and vent your anger at mitchell all you want but it isnt going to change a thing. get your own consortium together and sort it out yourselves.would love to see that rather than the mindless drivel on here from people who dont even go to the games and constantly gripe.
as for the team I dont care that we have lost all the players as long as the ones that we have playing do so with a bit of passion and fight. thats all I want. Feeney et all dont care they have left. Half the players that went were over rated any way.

This is what I have been worried about since the beginning of the Mitchell dictatorship. This man never does anything for anyone else - only for his own gain.
My partner keeps telling me that there is a convenant or something on the land that means it always has to be used for football, but I am not sure about this. There are ways, of in a lot of cases, of overturning covenants anyway.
I am very very concerned.

I don't think anyone saw the success under EH coming, and this merely served to slow the big Mitchell plan, because unexpectedly a few good young players became valuable assets who could be cashed-in later, and that is the phase we have witnessed over the last few months. So where is all the money going/gone? I fear that the Mitchells are probably trying to secure a deal with the landlords of the ground to buy the ground back, not as a club asset but as a personal asset, or under the camouflage of one of the other companies they are involved with. Not, of course, that they want the ground. They want the land, simple as! They tested the water at Dorchester Town, got found out, and bailed out because suddenly the even more lucrative opportunity presented itself here. As I have said before, Edmund Mitchell never has been a fan of AFCB - he is a speculative property developer, nothing more, nothing less, and leopards don't change their spots![/p][/quote]This is what I have been worried about since the beginning of the Mitchell dictatorship. This man never does anything for anyone else - only for his own gain. My partner keeps telling me that there is a convenant or something on the land that means it always has to be used for football, but I am not sure about this. There are ways, of in a lot of cases, of overturning covenants anyway. I am very very concerned. Fred Luton

I seriously doubt Mitchell is after the ground for development. The southstand definatlely and why not. This area is a nothing area and if he can build a hotel on it all well and good. Personally dont see the point in the houses at the back but this at least looks better than it was.
I dont think even EM would attempt to get rid of the club itself as Im sure there would be a massive personal back lash. He wouldnt be that stupid.....Would he????

For the answer to that one, try speaking to the creditors of all his previous companies. There are plenty (of both). And as Fred stated, covenants can be reversed, particularly if you have the right contacts.

The Club wont survive on the gates they are likely to get in future, below 4000 by the New Year and to break even 5700 is needed. You may not care if we have poor players and going to Dean Court is a crap experience, but most of us do, we expect to be entertained and to come away from a game with a good feeling and not miserable after seeing yet another dreadful game.As for the players being over rated I suspect that all those who have left us will be playing in a Division two levels above us next Season. We have a poor Squad, a Manager tatically naive and who appears unable to motivate his players. A nice guy he may be - but a Manager?. I believe that we are certain relegation candidates and every one unbiased can see that. Lee must have tried to bring in a score of players by now - who have refused him - don't you wonder why, it's not only the money!. Mitchell name is mud now - every one in the game knows about him. Nor is it likely that the Club is in a sound finacial position either, from a huge loss in 2010 to a massive profit in 2011 - "unbelievable!!!!"

I said i'd judge Eddie Mitchell's ambition for this club by the end of the transfer window and by the way things look today he obviously hasn't got any.I first started coming on this forum last pre season and had nothing but praise for the things he was doing for the club,making the ground look attractive for potential investors,freeing up transfer funds for Rhoys,(i know he didn't cost a lot but still),and Marc Pugh,(got the shock of his life at the tribunal but still had to pay it).
Whilst other people started to call him an asset stripper and a destroyer of the club,(i'm talking about the sensible posters not the mindless name callers),i continued to question what they were talking about and to laugh at their fanciful notions.Well,today i'm afraid i'm having to eat a rather large slice of humble pie.While i haven't got a problem with players being sold that want to better themselves whether in a higher league or just grabbing the money,(Yes!You Wiggins!),i have a huge problem with no one being bought in to cover those departures.We have had a couple of months knowing that our players were being coveted and yet there seems to have been no back up plan to bring anyone in to cover those that were inevitably leaving.What did we do?Ask potential targets if they fancied a move here and then sit on our hands for weeks only to have them come back and say "no thanks"?.I'm all for having a wage cap but can we really not attract anyone from League 2 and the Blue Square to come and play for us?For Gods sake,Bury,who can't be paying much more then us,if at all,managed to flog Ryan Lowe and still sign Northampton's top striker all in 48 hours!My point in all this is EM was happy to let players go,yes we needed the money to service the debt,but then we went past the money owed and started to make a healthy profit,he was saying on Solent the other day we've got a £mill in the bank,so why hasn't this money,a small portion of it been used to reinvest in the team?There are masses of players out there,affordable in transfer fees and wages,that would service our needs but many at the club seem culpable of failing to let that materialise and at the end of the day the buck stops with the chairman.I'm deeply disappointed.I will still however be attending all home games,work permitting,and will never boycott.I have no passion for any other team but this and during difficult times those lads out there on the pitch putting in a shift will need our support more then ever and that's just what i intend to do.Those that wish to boycott,well,that's your choice.AFCB is for life,not just for Christmas.

Great post - I too have no passion for any other team, but I point blank refuse to line Mitchell's pockets. Words will have zero effect I'm afraid. We have to separate our loyalties to the club we all love from the fact that AFCB is a business with directors who are treating their customers with contempt. If you receive poor service or value from a company, you stop dealing with that company until it has made the necessary changes to improve.

Whilst other people started to call him an asset stripper and a destroyer of the club,(i'm talking about the sensible posters not the mindless name callers),i continued to question what they were talking about and to laugh at their fanciful notions.Well,today i'm afraid i'm having to eat a rather large slice of humble pie.While i haven't got a problem with players being sold that want to better themselves whether in a higher league or just grabbing the money,(Yes!You Wiggins!),i have a huge problem with no one being bought in to cover those departures.We have had a couple of months knowing that our players were being coveted and yet there seems to have been no back up plan to bring anyone in to cover those that were inevitably leaving.What did we do?Ask potential targets if they fancied a move here and then sit on our hands for weeks only to have them come back and say "no thanks"?.I'm all for having a wage cap but can we really not attract anyone from League 2 and the Blue Square to come and play for us?For Gods sake,Bury,who can't be paying much more then us,if at all,managed to flog Ryan Lowe and still sign Northampton's top striker all in 48 hours!My point in all this is EM was happy to let players go,yes we needed the money to service the debt,but then we went past the money owed and started to make a healthy profit,he was saying on Solent the other day we've got a £mill in the bank,so why hasn't this money,a small portion of it been used to reinvest in the team?There are masses of players out there,affordable in transfer fees and wages,that would service our needs but many at the club seem culpable of failing to let that materialise and at the end of the day the buck stops with the chairman.I'm deeply disappointed.I will still however be attending all home games,work permitting,and will never boycott.I have no passion for any other team but this and during difficult times those lads out there on the pitch putting in a shift will need our support more then ever and that's just what i intend to do.Those that wish to boycott,well,that's your choice.AFCB is for life,not just for Christmas. On the plus side at least we kept Marc Pugh!:)[/p][/quote]I hope I am not one of the mindless name callers thoguh I have to admit that I have resorted to it on a few occasions due to total frustration.

'Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To get her poor dog a bone
When she got there
The cupboard was bare
And so the poor dog had none.'

They say that all nursery rhymes have an element of truth -
substitute 'Hubbard' for 'Bradbury',
'dog' for 'fans' and 'bone' for 'player.'
Now see if there's any truth in it...

Nor is it likely that the Club is in a sound finacial position either, from a huge loss in 2010 to a massive profit in 2011 - "unbelievable!!

Good point about the break even figure,wasn`t last season`s figure similar to the 5700 you quote, yet average crowds at DC were 7100, therefore exceeding the break even figure by some margin,what one might be able to refer to as money for the kitty,except it isn`t.

As for Pugh I still expect him to move,wouldn`t be surprised if he went out on loan,once the window opens,in the same way that saw Mcquoid go to Millwall

As for bringing in new players, Lee has said time and again, he will only buy or loan if the players are right, and EM has said the price must be right. If the club had been run like this for the last 30 years we would still have our own ground and could well be in the Championship.

Now just take a look back. Our results for the last 2 months of last season were relegation form. So any real surprise we are struggling this year ? I expected this last season. The team over performed and we finished 6th. It was never going to happen again this year, particularly with an allegedly weaker team. I predicted a struggle this year back in March and got a lot of stick, but here we are.

Alan Hanson remarked recently that an over performing team creates problems because the fans expect it to last. He can say that again !
.
Yeovil wanted Macdonald badly, but they couldn't match our cash. But when that happens to us, it's EM's fault and he is supposed to put more cash in. Some logic that. Mac saved Yeovil from relegation last year. Hopefully he can do the same for us this time round. Up the Cherries !!!
These comments are sensible, the club is in the best financial condition for a very long time and maybe could buy back the ground. It will be great to add new players but not at crazy prices.
How do you know that the club is in the best financial condition? have you seen the books?
Can we really believe that EM has saved the cash?

I don't think so, open your eyes. It is clear that EM is not going to part with any of the money. He probably has already spent it.
How many times do you need to be lied before you see what EM really is?
The club is only in a better financial state than being insolvent 12 months ago only if the transfer monies are actually being used to clear the net £3.25m short term creditors quoted in the July 2010 Accounts.

The main creditor is Mitchell you clown, to the tune of £530,000, considering he has not put a penny into the club, how come he is owed over half a million.

The management need to consentrate on players that want to play for AFCB. Find the new stars and there are plenty of hungrey young talent in the non-league teams and reserves of the higher league teams. Bradders & co need to exploit their contacts and move quickly. Bring joy and team spirit to the dressing room and build a team that will fight for every point. We can stay up and it's too early to be dispondent. Its a new season and we have some great days ahead. Stockley can show off his talent now that Lovell is off and we should be able to get a good loan player too, Doble perhaps.

Contacts? That's just the point though. They don't have any contacts. Bradders just brought in some old mates. Doble had one good game in the month that he was with us.(incidentally was injured for 2 games - which is poor for a young kid) Stockley was amazing and took his goals well, unlike some other young upstart that we sold on for £1M, who didn't really know where the goal was! The worst comment that Mitchell made last night at the forum was to say to us "if you don't like it go down the road and support Southampton"
And after saying that he never redeemed himself, looking at his watch throughout the entire forum.
He probably does have some good in him but he is not articulate enough to get that message across. He just loses his temper and rubbish splirts out. Now I see that he has threatened to leave the club if his family continues to get abuse from "a minority" of fans.
I think lovell packed it in because he wanted out. Symes is rumoured to have walked too. We shall see.
