Re: Communication let me down
Personally I feel spin is the last thing we need and if the club put out a message like that I'd find it tone deaf and lacking credibility.
The reality is we aren't financially secure as we've relied on directors' loans for years and we're whittling the AFC money down by renting; the team is in a worrying shape; and 'that away day excitement' is a meaningless justification of a long journey to home games. Comms that claim things are fine are as likely to be met with raised eyebrows, ridicule or even anger as they are a positive response.
The bit of your statement I agree with is the encouraging everyone to work together. But it has to be done against a reality that the club is asking everyone to pay more money and travel further to watch a worse team. That's a tough ask.
I'd much rather see comms that acknowledges we're in a difficult situation; gives supporters reassurance that there's a plan now Lovelace is (presumably?) dead; asks our opinion about the future of the club; and seeks our continued support in helping to get through a difficult few years ahead towards a hopefully brighter future.
