Sweaty Ken

Recommended Posts

Whatever the differences beteeen KA and Ilies, banning him takes it to a different, political level. 

I cannot see KA winning in this personal dispute.

There used to be a time when people would communicate face to face but it all seems to be done by social media these days. Sad.

He was, allegedly, asked only yesterday, to tone it down

They tried. He was warned

Iles ignored it

Anyway, journos are banned from loads of clubs up and down the country - it’s not isolated

Serves the useless prick right

I am sure there will have been many polite requests in the past for some balanced reporting thats fell in deaf ears

Eventually for most people in the end your patience wears thin 

If thats the case hes got what he deserves

The guy is a fucking idiot and got what he deserved. In a world where social media plays such a part you can be dismissed from work for gross misconduct ‘liking’ idiotic posts is only going to antagonise Ken further more. No need, childish, pathetic and bordering on unprofessional. Particularly in the last few days 

yes he has a job to do but part of that job is providing a balanced, impartial view on the going’s on. He has provided neither recently and when the club is the sole purpose of your employment you’d hope he’d have enough between his ears to realise time is up playing the martyr for the bwfc Twitter M0ng brigade. 

If he was a landlord of a boozer and some Dick head slagged him off then came in every weekend for a pint he’d do exactly the same thing so why KA should do any different is beyond me. 

The guys a fucking clown who should’ve been banned long ago for his incompetence alone. Well done Ken

 

In one.

I know people have their own views on things but it's pretty clear that Iles did what he did today deliberately with his choice of breaking the news on twitter (rather than the paper and link to it) and accompany it with a picture of Scrooge (obviously we ALL know who that was aimed at) was a clear act of defiance on Iles part.

I don't know if he thought he was bomb proof or something but clearly he had gone out of his way to deliberately stick two fingers up at the club owner which clearly isn't acting in a professional or impartial manner.

Hate Ken or not - but he was put in a position where he was forced to act - which he did.

I've wondered if Iles and the ST really though Anderson was vulnerable these last few weeks and that their 'attacks' could topple him?  If so they badly miscalculated as the club was never going to go in Administration with the cash flow significantly improving for the next few months and the three main creditors (Moonshine, James and Warburton) clearly still happy with how KA is running the business.

Clearly there is a long way to go before we are out of the woods financially but the non payment of players wages in November - (after just one home game due to the international break (ok we had the Wigan game receipts to come as well but I don't know how quickly they hit the bank in time for wages payment deadlines?) - with loads of money coming in, in December and January (several home games, third tranche of Season Ticket money, EFL's Sky staged payment) was never a good fight to win.  So if Iles and the ST were indeed choosing a battle to fight they certainly picked the wrong one here.

Iles has been a provocative and deliberately so - I can't see how KA could have turned a blind eye to this - if he had Iles would clearly have gone much further at pushing things at the very next opportunity he got.

As I say hate Anderson as much as you want but what would you do in his shoes when the local papers club reporter clearly is against you and playing to an audience of his twitter mates, seemingly feeling free of all restraints to keep having a go at you?

It's not as though he (and his management ) wasn't warned in advance.

I can’t think of what Ken has got wrong.

he seems to doing what he can to improve matters, communicates reasonably and we are still in business.

None of the twitter death squad want to answer this question, just get a load of bullshit name calling and saying he should have to pay the wages out of his own pocket, kens a criminal thief amongst other uneducated belters.

I think Ken is doing the best he can atm but I'll be bloody glad when he's gone and hopefully someone will come in with a bit of money to help us compete.

Doesn't help that every caller on GMR says 'I wasn't at the game but i listened on the radio and it didn't sound great, we need to spend money in January'. 

The club might have some money if the supporters actually went to the fucking games.

Perhaps, but I think we can be grateful that he did
