Yes I do mean the club. They did and I can understand why they did this but timing doesn’t sit well as I assume we will be punished when effectively they had to turn out for 180 minutes. They should of been paid as I’m still to meet anyone that prefers working for nowt. I suppose the argument is whether you’d class being a football player a job as such. That I don’t know.

 

They chose as individuals whether or not to play against Forest, they should have done the same v Brentford instead of senior pros calling a strike and making the whole squad abide by it.

I'm glad your kid got looked after, I really am, but what about the hundreds, maybe thousands of other kids who've been denied that game? I've said it earlier and someone else has picked up on it

This would you to work if you weren’t getting paid crap really does my head in. If 10,000 people turned up to my work week in week out and pay money to watch me work and cheer me on because they

KA could've at least gone down the training ground and explained to the players if there's no money in the bank, there's no money in the bank, and explained he doesn't have any obligation to pay them.

 If we are sticking with the "Its a job" people can no longer complain about loyalty etc. (not you)

The club had paid them you mean

And yep it would but target still had a choice to make. 

Mans they made the shithouse one, which sums the cunts up

 

Ken's a man of means, and also a man who convinced the EFL we had the funds to see us through the end of the season. He could've paid the players and got the Brentford game on, he chose not to. How is he less culpable than the players who chose not to put themselves at risk?

I think (and I might be wrong here) the finer detail of what you're saying is that Ken could have paid them, but the club couldn't. Payment is down to the club, not the owner, sadly.

Rightly or wrongly KA isn't putting any money into the failing business.

KA could've at least gone down the training ground and explained to the players if there's no money in the bank, there's no money in the bank, and explained he doesn't have any obligation to pay them.  He could've pointed out they will get paid at some point, and that they've only been paid late a couple of times.  He could've  tried guilt tripping them like he does with the non playing staff where he makes on if they give a shit they keep going till they get paid, if they love the club.   He could've avoided the fact that pretty much his only line of communication with the playersopf late has been his column, which he uses to criticise them.   He could've made the tough decisions required for the club to survive as he said he would. 

I don't appreciate the players doing what they did when they did because of the ramifications, but I don't blame them - it's all on KA and reactions to his actions which are running the club into the ground from every angle.

I'm saying if we're calling the players cunts and worse for not going against their best interests and playing while unpaid, surely it should cause a similar amount of anger that Ken didn't say 'well the fans have been through a lot, here's my consultancy fee from a couple of years ago back, let's get this game on'?

Ken acts like a cunt and everybody else is expected to bend over backwards to keep us afloat, and if they don't it's their fault and not his. That's the last three years in a nutshell.

Ok. Where do you think the overwhelming majority of the criticism has been aimed at on here for us not playing the Brentford game?

FFS, what’s the specific title of this thread?

The internet isn’t for everyone
